I'm a would be converted and would like to ask for suggestions for Hindu organizations with an online presence (and preferably an online community) that are open to converts and enquirers. The question is not just for me but all other English-speaking enquirers / potential converts who do not have any Hindu organizations in their area (or even city, town, county etc.).

  • Hi Allan! May I ask what made you seek conversion? Not the specific circumstances but which aspect of Hinduism seems to draw you in. This might help with soliciting better answers. Commented Nov 19, 2017 at 3:29

    You do not need to convert @AllanB. Hinduism is not a religion in which you have to do rituals to "convert'. You can leave your current religion and be hindu just by thought. Be devoted to Shiva, Devi , Vishnu , Ganesha, or any other God you like. This chosen god is called Ishta Devata. And remember, do not change Ishta Devata again and again. And even after IshtaDevata, all Gods can be worshipped. Remember, all Gods are just one, they have taken different from for different temperament of different devotees.

Where you can legally convert to Hinduism? Goto any Arya samaj temple. After conversion, you will be provided legally valid certificate.

Many Hindu/Vedic sects will convert you, such as Arya samaj , Shaiva Siddhanta Church , BAPS, ISKCON etc.

Easiest and smoothest will be Arya samaj , but you can go for ISKCON too
