World Hindu Economic Forum (WHEF), as the name suggests, is a platform to bring together the wealth generators and thinkers in Hindu society, it's entrepreneurs, academicians, economists and businesses, from across the globe. The purpose is to make the Hindu society prosperous. The inspiration for this idea is rooted in the wisdom - Dharmasya Moolam Artham or Economy Sustains Everything - as proclaimed by the legendary thinker Chanakya. The World Hindu Economic Forum pursues the vision of ‘Making Society Prosperous’ tempered by the ages old Hindu value of ‘Generate and Share Surplus Wealth’.
||Swami Vigyananand, founder of the WHEF:

The forum is a brain child of Shri Swami Vigyananand, an Alumnus of the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur with a deep desire do meaningful work in the field of economics and connect the Hindu community fom all over the world. He says "We are now living in the 21st century, equipped with all the advanced technologies like airplane, internet, mobiles, and other modern facilities.

The WHEF journey began in 2012 at Hong Kong, followed by successful annual fora in Bangkok 2013, New Delhi 2014, London 2015, and several regional fora along the way.
Today, the recession in all major economies that followed the economic boom of previous two decades, has plunged the world in a turmoil. The current institutional framework and mindsets responding with cost-cutting and resort to protectionism, are proving inadequate to these complex challenges. Such endeavours, designed for relative stability, do not work in adverse times. We need a new and creative response, which can propel creation of surplus wealth to rescue the world economy from its current crisis. WHEF’s present approach is based on the timeless wisdom in the Bhagwad Gita: Gatasunagatasums cha nanusochanti panditah or wise men neither worry about what is past nor what is passing. Which means, think in future, for the future.
