Teachers require them to learn by heart to make sure that the children chant Lingashtakam without looking at the book. The Lingashtakam Stotram is a prayer formed of eight salutations or invocations offered to the Supreme Deity in his aspect as Linga. Linga is the universal symbol of creation and source of everything. This prayer glorifies the Shiva Linga and details its greatness. Each stanza lists the God’s glory and the benefits of worshipping the Shiva Linga. It states that the Linga is worshipped by Vishnu and Brahma as well. Always filled with peace, it destroys any suffering caused by the cycle of birth and rebirth. Three stanzas are listed with meaning:  Brahma Murari Sura architha Lingam, Nirmala bashitha Shobitha Lingam l Janmaja dukha vinasaka lingam, that pranamami sada shiva lingam lI I bow before that Lingam, which is the eternal Shiva, Which is worshipped by Brahma, Vishnu and other Devas, Which is pure and resplendent, And which destroys sorrows of birth.

Sarva sukandhi sulepitha lingam, Budhi vivarthana karana lingam l Siddha surasura vandhitha lingam, that pranamami sada shiva lingam ll I bow before that Lingam, which is the eternal Shiva, Which is anointed by perfumes, Which leads to growth of wisdom, And which is worshipped by sages, devas and asuras.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Students were inspired by listening to life, patriotism and sacrifice of Chandrasekhar Azad who fought for the liberation of Bharat from British.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is committed to transmit the richness of Sanatana dharma to the youngsters in terms of the depth and width of knowledge, the sacrifices of national heroes, miracles of Maha Rishis, science and mathematics, and the importance of maintaining the traditions and customs. So many young people worked for the liberation of Bharat from the British rule. One such patriot is “Azad.” Chandrasekhar Azad, the immortal hero who fought armed struggle for the liberation of the motherland in the freedom movement of India. He is a unique hero who made our nation proud who created tremors in the hearts of the British along with Bhagat Singh, Rajaguru, Sukhdev, Pandit Ram Prasad Bismil, Thakur Roshan Singh, Prem Kishan Khanna and Ashfaqullah Khan. Azad's full name is Chandrasekhara Sitaram Tiwari, who is known as the guide of Bhagat Singh. He is also known as Panditji. After 1857 he was the first of the heroes who fought armed struggle. Azad was a firm believer that righteous war was right for the protection of the country's people.  Chandrasekhar Azad was born on 23rd July 1906 to Pandit Sitaram Tiwari and Zagarani Devi in Bawra village, Jhabua district, Madhya Pradesh state. He completed his primary education in his own village and pursued his higher secondary education in a Sanskrit school in Varanasi. He was a devotee of Hanuman since childhood. Azad was deeply disturbed by the Jallianwala Bagh incident in Amritsar in 1919. After that, he actively participated in the non-cooperation movement led by Mahatma Gandhi in 1921. He was arrested at the age of fifteen for the crime of participating in this movement. "What's your name?"  court asked him during the trial. Asked by the magistrate, he shouted "Azad" in a loud voice. The magistrate sentenced him to 15 lashes. But every time he was whipped, he shouted Bharat Mataki Jai. Since then, his name has been fixed as Chandrasekhar Azad. The non-cooperation movement awakened the latent revolutionary zeal in Azad. At any rate, he was determined to free India from the hands of the British. As expected, he founded the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association. He became a mentor to Bhagat Singh, Sukhadev, etc. Azad fired at J.P. Sanders in Lahore in 1928 to take revenge on the British for the Kakori train robbery in 1926, Viceroy train burning in the same year, Lala Lajpati Rai's death. Involved in revolutionary activities like shooting Saunders. At one stage, Azad was a nightmare for the British police. He made a police hitlist and did not let go until he was killed. After being arrested at the age of fifteen, Azad, who came out and took part in the struggle, was never caught by the police until his death. But on February 27, 1931, when he reached Alfred Park in Allahabad to meet his two companions, he was surrounded by British police on the tip of informers. Azad was warned to surrender. However, with his iron will he did not surrender to the police and fought alone and killed three policemen. After fighting till exhaustion, he shot himself at the last moment with the only remaining bullet he had. The British police, who wanted to catch Azad alive till the end, were unable to do so and finally had to seize his body. They put Azad's dead body on public display, issuing a warning to the people and other fighters that anyone who goes against their government will suffer the same fate as Azad. But Azad's death made the people more determined, and patriotism ignited. Encouraged to join the fight.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Karnataka – Stopped the conversion of Hindus into Christianity; performed Pujas and Homas to Grama Devata

“We have become so accustomed to the religious lie that surrounds us that we do not notice the atrocity, stupidity, and cruelty with which the teaching of the Christian church is permeated. . . The teaching of the church, theoretically astute, is a lie in practice and a compound of vulgar superstitions and sorcery.” Leo Tolstoy Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to inform that our Pracharaks have taken an extraordinary step to prevent deceptive conversions in a village in Karnataka. We all know how Christianity spread to Europe and other countries across the globe.  They go to any extent to convert Hindus to Christianity in India, especially in villages. As Tolstoy mentioned, the teachings of Church people are utter lies. It is the business concept that drives them to lie, distort, commit atrocities, and use very trick in the books to convert people into Christianity. In the past three or four times in the Bandamida Palli village of Pavugada taluka in the state of Karnataka, we met the Hindu relatives and explained about our traditions and our Sanatana Dharma religion. Although some families are passionate about Hinduism, but they are ready to convert to Christianity by believing the false words of the Christian pastors. By saying, on behalf of our organization, the whole village performed Abhishekam homa programs for the village goddess, Maremma mother, saying that the village will be peaceful, and these programs were done today. Even in the puja programs, those who wanted to convert to Christianity were said to be at the front of the puja.       By performing pujas to the goddess, first, gotras and names were recited to each one and protection bracelets were tied. Later Navagraha Puja, Ganapati Puja, Panchamruta Abhisheka was performed for Mother Maremma , Ganapati Homa, Navagraha Homa and Maremma Homa were conducted with great success.        After the pooja was over, those who wanted to convert to Christianity said that they did very good pooja and it was very peaceful for us. We decided to convert to Christianity after listening to the Fosters. But after this pooja was over we were enlightened and happy that we had taken the wrong decision.       Our Sanatana dharma is very great. Some people are spreading propaganda and making trouble for people like you. Don't believe their words. Our organization Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized free pooja homa programs for the sake of village peace. It was informed that.

[GHHF] Assam attracted 7000 Hindus to Maha Jansampark Abhiyan/ Mega Membership drive and public contact Campaign.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is excited to announce that on the auspicious occasion of Shivaji Jayanti, about 7000 strong Hindus thronged the grand opening ceremony/launching program of the Mega Membership drive campaign of GHHF Assam. GHHF Assam ground level cadets are working very hard to accomplish the target of reaching 5O,000 people. It will be an uphill task to reach the target. But we are hoping that the enthusiasm of those people who attended the function will match the results.                  The mission of the Mega event is twofold: 1)      To unite all the Hindus at one platform irrespective of their affiliation with other Hindu groups. Only the unity of thinking, unity of action, unity of affiliation, and unity of pride will be able to bring diverse groups of Hindus together to act as one group. It will strengthen their commitment and determination to face the challenges as a united group instead of working independently. 2)      Global Hindu Heritage Foundation of Assam is committed to represent the wishes and philosophy of Hindus who follow Sanatana Dharma. This would allow Hindus to face the challenges they are facing at the ground level. Protection of Hindu Temples, protection of Hindu girls, challenging the deceptive practices of Christians and Muslims, and inspiring all Hindus to practice their Dharma without any kind of interference from other faiths. Sri Samrat Dutt, the Board Director of the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has been working tirelessly for more than three years in Assam, and Manipur, and West Bengal. It is his passion to make sure that Hindus can practice their faith, attend their Temples, and conduct their festivals without any fear and anxiety. Sri Samrat spoke passionately about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and the need to work jointly to enable Hindus to be proud of their culture. In his speech, he told the Mega gathering about the need to get united and the advantages of doing it together. The more we are united, the stronger we get. It is difficult for any other faiths to take advantage of our unity. It is only an organization like GHHF that will be able to forge a unified group to represent different ideas.                 It is very important to strengthen our Hindus and at the same, it is the responsibility of every Hindu to work toward strengthening our organization. How are we working on the ground level?                 We have been engaged in a variety of activities at the ground level and stop the exploitation of Hindus by other faiths. •         We have started Ghar Wapasi to welcome those Hindus who got converted to Christianity either by force, promises, or allurements. •         We started about 22 Bala Samskar Kendras educating about 450 children about the greatness of Sanatana Dharma. •         We saved more than 350 cows from being slaughtered. No other organizations can do this so far.   •         We saved many Hindu girls from love Jihad, we distributed more than 3000 books, and we welcomed more than 200 non-Hindus back to Hindu Dharma.   •         We are working on the development of Adhibasis   •         We are working for the betterment of women; started a special team viz TEJASWINI. So, based on these activities we are appealing to all the Hindus present here to join us, work with us, represent Hindu ideals, and protect our sisters and brothers. Sri Samratji exhorted the audience by asking “Will Join me.” “Will you work with us? Will you stand for Hindu Dharma? Will you protect our Sanatana Dharma? All the present Hindus were jubilant and excited to hear his peak. They responded by saying “Yes. Yes. Yes.” The Mega event concluded by chanting loudly “Jai Sri Ram, Jai Sri Ram, Jai Sri Ram.” Your donations are appreciated; By Zelle: ghhfusaorg@gmail.com PayPal: savetemples.org By Check: Or you can send a check payable to GHHF, 14726 Harmony Lane, Frisco, TX 75035.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Students learned about the difference between thought and Practice: Moral is that the ideas must be put to Practice

In Mukunda Puram, Aravind, a young man, used to do agriculture and serve for the development of the village. Those villagers were constantly going to work in Island which is in the middle of Godavari. There is a canal between the villages. A palm tree bridge was built to cross the canal. Walking on that palm bridge, every now and then someone slips and falls into the canal. Therefore, Aravindh asked the village panchayat to build a bridge over the canal. The members said that there are no funds for that. At least all the villagers subscribed and built the bridge themselves, but no one came forward. So, Aurobindo made a boat with his own money. The village panchayat agreed to pay a monthly salary to the person appointed to run it. The villagers were also very happy as the palm tree bridge to cross the canal went away and Boat came. Nagendra, who lives in the same village, has a habit of criticizing anyone who does anything. “Would it be enough to put a barricade instead of building a bridge over the canal? Paying the man who drives it will not increase the panchayat funds!” He criticized that. Aravind did not say anything even though that word reached his ears. Once upon a time Aravind left for another village in his ox driven cart. While walking along the riverbank, he saw some of his villagers walking in the sun on the way. Aravind called them and took them in the cart. Among them was Nagendra. Aravind was striking the oxen with a stick while walking slowly instead of running. Seeing that, Nagendra said, "It's a great thing to make the bones work! Nagendra criticized as usual saying, "If you lean on your back with love, they will listen to you." Arvind still did not say anything. When he went a little further, Aravind saw Ox walking with a snail's pace and said to Nagendra, "It seems that what you said is true. I sit back. "You come forward and drive the cart," he said. Nagendra got upset and said, “I can't drive a cart.” He said anxiously. "You who know how to tame a sheep, can't drive a cart?" said Aravind in surprise. "Is it possible for everyone to drive a motorcycle as long as they know the way?" said Nagendra. Then Aravind smiled and spoke. “The idea of doing a good deed and the idea of how to do it are in everyone. The difficulty lies in putting them into practice. Thinking is different, practice is different. Just like if you dive into water but you don't know the depth, if you practice a task but you don't know the pros and cons of it. It is easy to criticize what others do. It is difficult to do that work yourself.. Criticism for the sake of criticism is harmful. They risk turning back those who want to do good.” As Aurobindo gently points out his omission, Nagendra realizes his mistake. After that, not only did he never indulge in unnecessary criticism in any matter, but he also started helping the good works done by others.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Students learned about Bhishmacharya, his birth, his role in Mahabharata and how the name Bhishma Ekadashi came along.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is committed to teach the richness of Mahabharata, greatness of Bhishma and the essence of Dharma. Our Itihasasa are replete with morals, ethics and principles that have guided Bharath for thousands and thousands of years. Our students are taught about Bhishma and his contribution to relevance of Dharma for the modern world.  The glory of Bhishma Pitamaha, the founder of this auspicious day, is infinite. In other words, the glory of that great man cannot be compared with anyone else. Magha Shuddha Ekadashi, which is very dear to Sri Maha Vishnu, was given to him as a gift by that lord and called Bhishma Ekadashi. Liberate by reciting Vishnu Sahasra Nama! If you fast on Bhishma Ekadashi and recite Vishnu Sahasra Nama, you will attain moksha. Sri Vishnu Sahasra Nama was dedicated to Lord Krishna on Magha Suddha Ekadashi by Bhishma. It is known that the whole world is currently praying to Krishna with Bhishma's Sri Vishnu Sahasra Namas (names). Those who chant Vishnu's Sahasra Nama daily will be successful in their planned activities and attain salvation. Also, even if you don't read Vishnu's Sahasra Namas, even if you at least hear them, the troubles will be removed easily. It is our tradition to consider Ekadashi as a fasting day every month. Among them 'Magha Ekadashi' is the most sacred. But there is something special about this Ekadashi called 'Bhishma Ekadashi'. Magha Suddha Ashtami is the day when Bhishmacharya, the 'Mahabhagavata Shikhamani', was liberated. It has become a tradition to treat Maga Shuddha Ekadashi as Bhishma Ekadashi. History of Bhishma is a peak in India.  Bhishma is very fearsome- the epitome of ferocity. He attained holiness by demonstrating this ferocity in the restraint of the senses and in conquering the celestial enemies. This Mahatma, who was called Devavratha, adopted Ajanma Brahmacharya for the sake of his father as a patriot. If Sri Rama was an exemplary man who obeyed his father's words, Bhishmacharya was a great man who renounced his throne to seek his father's pleasure and practiced birth celibacy. A legendary man who recited Vishnu Sahasra Nama kirtan from Ampasayana himself and Maga Shuddha Ekadashi, the favorite of that lord, was accorded as a gift in his name. Birth story... According to Adiparvam in Mahabharata, Bhishma was one of the Ashtavasus who were cursed in his previous birth. Goddess Ganga appeared to those who had gone to earth to raise mankind. The Vasus, thinking that it would be better if they were born in that mother's womb, spoke to Ganga Mata and asked her to merge them in her and grant them salvation. Gangamma agreed to that and asked that only one child be born with a long life. The first seven vasus of Sarenana poured part of their life into the last vasus. Shantan falls in love with Ganga Devi who has come down to earth in human form. He says he will marry her. Then Ganga marries Shantan on the condition that 'no matter what I do, don't stop me, the moment I say that I will leave you'. After that, Goddess Ganga starts milking every child born to them. Shantan, who has endured seven times, spares her for the eighth time. Ganga wants to make a deal with Shantanu who intercepted her. She takes the child with her saying that she will raise the child and give it to her husband. He is Bhishma. Bhishma is the embodiment of Dharma. It was Dwapara Yuga, Sobhakritu year, Maga Shuddha Ashtami Bhishma became united with Lord Narayana while he was glowing with intense rays... at that mid-day (in Abhijitlagnam) while glorifying Sri Maha Vishnu. The day that legendary man died... Bhishashtami. According to the boon given by Krishna before his death, the Ekadashi that comes three days later is known as Bhishma Ekadashi after the old man. Bhishma plays an important role in Mahabharata. Any royal child is naturally obsessed with the throne. But Bhishma was able to conquer that passion at a young age. Knowing his father's desire to marry Dasaraja's daughter Satyavati, he arranges the marriage. If Dasaraju doubts that his daughter's children will not have royal yoga while Bhishma is around, he vows not to marry at all. Among the children born to her, Chitrangada dies in a battle with the Gandharvas. The second son Vichitraveerya is a tuberculosis patient. He cannot find anyone to give him a child. And then Bhishmu himself undertakes. If Kasiraju declares Swayamvaram to his three daughters, he will go there and forcefully take those tears. Amba, the eldest of the three, finds out that she is already in love with another hero and leaves her alone. He gives the other two to Vichitraveeryudu and marries them. Unfortunately, he passed away. Satyavati asks Bhishma to protect the clan by giving birth to Ambika and Ambalika. Ganga Putra is bound by his vow, denying the chance of getting two wives along with the throne.  Through Vyasa, Dhritarashtra, who is blind to Ambika Ambalika, is born Panduraja. Bhishma also played a key role in their marriages. Gandhara brings his daughter Gandhari and gives her to Dhritarashtra in marriage. Bhishma is seen as observing Dharma even if Draupadi is insulted in the full house and ignores it. Draupadi, while teaching Yudhisthira, asks, 'What are these virtues when you are insulting me in the full assembly?' 'On that day I was bound by Raj Dharma. Bhishma replies, 'I am their guardian and servant.' Even though he has the boon to die whenever he wants, Bhishma feels that drying his body on Ampasaya for many days is an atonement for that sin. After the battle of Kurukshetra, Lord Krishna took Dharmaraja to Bhishma and taught him Dharma because he was an exemplary person who never wavered even in elections. It is known that in the last days one can get salvation only by doing Harinam Smarana. Such was the fortunate Bhishma who glorified Vasudeva with many names. It is special that they later became known as Vishnusahasranamas. That's why devotees believe that reciting Vishnusahasranama on Magashuddha Ashtamina, the day Bhishma died, and on the next Ekadashi, will bring all good fortune. 'Bhishmapratijna' is very famous in the entire world... Bhishma, who is known as Satyanishtha, is neutral in the decision of Dharma Adharma in some cases, but behind them there is the knowledge of divine will and the subtleties of Dharma. Nirmala and Bhishma punished themselves in 'Ampasaya' even for forgetting those few occasions. This sacred history, which is known as the epitome of sensual restraint and truthfulness, was struck down by arrows in the battle with Arjuna. He spent some time as a bed of arrows. At that time all the sages surrounded him. As part of Vishnu's plan for the protection of the world, this form of Vasu came down to earth as Sarva Dharmalanidhi, Trikala jnana, and acted in accordance with the divine will with this 'Trikala Jnana' characteristic. He was in yoga meditating on Lord Krishna while he was on Ampasaya. When a righteous man was leaving the world, Krishna, who decided to pass on the wealth of knowledge to future generations, reached Bhishma, who was humbled by the princes of righteousness. It was Krishna's will that the experience of visiting many worlds in a great period of time, and the knowledge of the Dharma that had nurtured the sciences should not perish with him. He ordered Yudhisthira to give all the wealth of Dharma to Yudhisthira, who took up the responsibility of ruling. Bhishma begged Lord Krishna to explain the virtues as he was battle-weary and wounded, unable to concentrate his mind and explain things in minute detail. But Mukunda spoke, "Grandfather! I bless you with amazing physical and intellectual powers. With them, you can pass on the subtleties of Dharma to your grandson." A generation should pass on to its next generation not only Dharma, knowledge, experience, but also possessions. This message is the essence of Bhishma's preaching to Darmaja. Then Bhishma preached Sukshadharma and Moksha Dharma in Shanti and Anushasanaika Parvas of Mahabharata. If Mahabharata is the essence of the Vedas, these two Parvas are the essence of India. In this, governance dharma, royal dharma, personal dharma, secularism, Upasana secrets, philosophy... all are seen together. That is, Bhishma once again proved himself to be a complete human being through this teaching. Philosophical thinking, religious devotion, devotion, sensuality - these qualities made Bhishma very dear to the Lord. Acharya is one who practices and practices. A great festival was created in his name. Bhagavad Gita is part of Mahabharata. Salutations to Bhishmacharya who is remembered by the entire nation.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras taught Students about Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, his birth, life, and final days.

The nearer you approach to God, the less you reason and argue. When you attain Him, then all sounds—all reasoning and disputing—come to an end. Then you go into samadhi—sleep—, into communion with God in silence.” ― Sri Ramakrishna Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is committed to transmit the richness of Sanatana dharma to the youngsters in terms of the depth and width of knowledge, the sacrifices of national heroes, miracles of Maha Rishis, science and mathematics, and the importance of maintaining the traditions and customs.  This week we talked about the greatness of a spiritual giant Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, the great prophet, who has established the eternal religion in the advanced society, has changed the perspective of Narendra who is rational and wise. He dedicated his life to spiritual contemplation. Ramakrishna, who is perfect in devotion, can see his mother in his wife. Born on 1836 February 18th in Kamarpukoor, Hooghly district of West Bengal, died in Kosipur Home on 1886 August 16th, on his 50th birthday. There is no birth and death for these divine souls. They are only for the five physical bodies. The cultural renaissance that took place in West Bengal in the 19th century had a stronger impact not only on itself but on the world as well, but there is no one more universal and egalitarian than Ramakrishna Paramhansa. They are always engrossed in secular thoughts and the essence of secularism is imparted in his teachings. Father is Kshudīrām, mother is Chandramani, but if one is obsessed with the body, then one is tempted to name the person as Chhātopādhyaya. Does the religious world address it? Ramakrishna, who came to live an extraterrestrial life, did not show any interest in education. The first alms that he received from a Shudra girl became sensationalized by society. Ramkrishna has a big heart and has studied other religions thoroughly to know the depth of Hinduism. We will come to know that he saw similarities in all religions.  He is the one who gave blessings to all the hearts of all the religions. After understanding the method of attaining the state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi from the religious gurus of Thotapuri and the process of attaining God-realization through devotion from the virtuous Brahmins, the religious fire in him did not burn to the core. At the age of just eight years, Sarada, who came as Ramakrishna's life partner, considered her as the incarnation of Tripura Sundari, worshiped her and took her from the status of ‘wife’ to the highest level. That is why sexual desire did not arise in their married life. Their Family life co-existed as two minds but not as two bodies in the co-existence. Ramakrishna deserves the honor of being described India as an equal mother. In the national movement, Mother India was following the footsteps of the British, the thought of enslaving the foreign people was intoxicating to them. The blood boiled. The teachings of Ramakrishna Param Hans contain social elements, humanitarian values, and social reform tendencies. Therefore, even though he was a spiritual yogi after taking up sannyasi, his caste and religion did not affect him in the least. There must be some reason for the body's elimination, so cancer entered the body for a reason. 1885 December 11: Ramakrishna suffered from severe sore throat. That gradually turned into cancer. All the big doctors in Shampakoor tried and failed to treat him. On December 11, 1885, he was transferred to Kasipur Hospital. The disciples and his wife Sharda Devi performed the final rituals. Rama Krishna used to suffer a lot from throat cancer. Doctors advised him not to quarrel with anyone in this situation. But Ram Krishna did not agree to refrain from speaking. He could not refrain from talking to those who came to him. As his last days approached, he called Vivekananda and deposited his spiritual strength in him. After him, Vivekananda wanted to continue his thinking, and everyone wanted to cooperate with him. He asked him to look after the disciples carefully, to impart his teachings to them in the future and to groom them into constant embodiments of consciousness. On 16 August 1886, he handed over the reins of authority to Vivekananda in the house of Kashipur. His disciples believe that Rama Krishna went into Maha Samadhi. On August 16, when Divya Samadhi time came, Vivekananda and 16 other disciples were present. Vivekananda, the heir of Ramakrishna, started his activities in an old house in Bara Nagar on the banks of river Ganga. He was given financial assistance by that institution and some other students. This is the first ashram dedicated to Ramakrishna! After that, as Ramakrishna's ideology became worldwide, it spread to various branches. Ramakrishna Ashramālu is named after selfless service and constant moral values. Ramakrishna Mission was started to spread the teachings of Ramakrishna throughout the world. Ramakrishna started Ramakrishna Math to continue the ascetic way of life. Vivekananda established organizations in the name of Ramakrishna and was able to show his selflessness. Vivekananda, as the soul-son of Ramakrishna, remained the heir of the religious life and created a history that could not be turned back by anyone. As a great scholar, he attracted the attention of the people of the world.

[GHHF] Conducted Prana Pratishta to Goddess Yeti Gangamma Vigraha believed to be 1300 years old in a Village.

 “If they only imagined what a Hindu nation looks like, they might start propagating Hindu nations all over the globe. One day, when people have become tired of blindly believing strange things, and when nobody is threatened any longer with dire consequences if he stops believing in those strange things, the world may be grateful to Bharat Mata that she has conceived and preserved over millennia those eternal, precious insights for the benefit of humanity.” Maria Wirth Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is actively promoting and preserving Sanatana Dharma through various activities. One such activity is the renovation and revival of Grama Devatas. So far, we have renovated about 30 Gram devatas in a number of ways depending on the needs of the villagers.  On February 12th, at about 90 km from Kalyanadurgam, a Goddess named Yeti Gangamma is residing in Thimmampalli village near Nagalamadaka in Karnataka state. This statue is said to have been around 1300 years ago from the Chola period.        However, this goddess has not been worshiped for a long time. In that village, a devotee named Venkateshulu had a dream where he was told by Goddess to perform Pujas. That he told the villagers who decided to install the Goddess in the Temple.  Since then, the pujas have been going on. But Gangamma's mother is engraved on a black stone which is believed to be during the Chola dynasty itself.       The villagers recognizing the mission of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation. The villagers approached us to help in this matter. Sri Gopi Krishna Achary, our resident priest, visited the place in the past. He suggested to villagers to do Pranaprathista ritualistically which would be good to the community.  This program started at four hours and 30 minutes of Brahma Muhurtam this morning, saying that it would be good for the peace of the village if Gangamma's mother Mula idol is installed along with other deities.         At 4:30 a.m., the Ganga Puja started with the Ganga water brought from Kashi and everyone who came was blessed by sprinkling water. Everybody was welcomed by applying Tilak on their forehead. Then Ganapati Puja, Punyavachakam, Navagraha Puja, Ganga Puja, Narasimha Puja, Mrityunjaya Puja, Kalash installation, Kalasa Puja, Kumbhabhishekam, Shanti Puja, Ganapati Homam, Navagraha Homam, Mrityunjaya Homam, Gangamma Matali Homam, Narasimha Homam, Shanti Homam, Gangamma Matali Homam followed by Vigraha Chara Prana Pratishta program. It was a gear was a great success and Prana Pratishta was done in such a way that Purnahuti was successful, and Pooja was performed to the mother planet. Finally, everyone was blessed by tying Raksha Petti. All this program was done completely free of cost on behalf of our organization. All the villagers expressed their happiness that the idol of Ammavari was consecrated by infusing life. Villagers expressed their happiness to Sri Gopi Krishna Chary for coordinating the Prana Pratishta of Goddess Gangamma and our organization – GHHF.  The villagers were unable to do the program due to financial difficulties till today. They were happy to see Gangamma Talli installed so that they can do pujas daily. Sri Gopi Garu instructed them to do pujas on a regular basis which will bring happiness and prosperity to the villagers.  Your donations are appreciated; By Zelle: ghhfusaorg@gmail.com PayPal: savetemples.org By Check: Or you can send a check payable to GHHF, 14726 Harmony Lane, Frisco, TX 75035.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Celebrated Rathasaptami by learning the importance of and performing Surya Namaskar. 

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to introduce Surya Namaskar to our children ever since we started our Bala Samskar Kendras. It is part of our syllabus that requires all the teachers to practice all 12 steps of Surya Namaskaras every Sunday.  Ratha Saptami is a Hindu festival that falls on the seventh day in the bright half of the Hindu month Magha. It is symbolically represented in the form of the sun-God Surya turning his chariot (ratha) drawn by seven horses towards the northern hemisphere, in a north-easternly direction. Rituals and prayers are offered to the Sun God, Surya on this day. The vent is also connected with worship of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu.  In general, this day is celebrated by worshipping Lord Surya as it is believed that he was born on this day. According to the legends, it is believed that by making donations on the eve of this occasion, the devotees get rid of their sins and illness are also bestowed with longevity, prosperity and good health.     The importance of Ratha Saptami is narrated in two different legends we find in the literature:  Ratha Saptami Story 1 A King named Yashovarma of the Kamboj Empire did not have a son to inherit his throne. After performing a lot of yagnas and worshiping, the King was blessed with a son. However, the child was born with a terminal illness, and the King & Queen, disheartened, did not know what to do. A sage, during that course of time, visited the King's palace. After learning about the King's son, the sage asked the King to ask his son to perform the Rathasapthami puja and request Surya dev to heal his disease. On the following Rathasapthami, the son chanted the Ratha Saptami Mantra and performed the Rathasapthami puja as asked by the sage. Miraculously, he was healed and grew up to be a great ruler and a good King.  Ratha Saptami Story 2 Durvasa Muni, the sage known for his anger and curse, once visited Lord Krishna. Durvasa Muni was performing strict penance then. Lord Krishna's son, Shambh, was very strong and had a fit body. Shambh mocked the weak body of the Muni, angered at which he cursed him to develop leprosy. Lord Krishna, looking at his son's not-getting-better condition, asked him to worship Surya Dev. Shambh started chanting Ratha Saptami Mantra, performed the puja with immense devotion, and observed fast. Pleased by his devotion, Surya Dev healed him of leprosy and made him fit again. Ratha Saptami Puja On this occasion many people perform Puja to Suryadevara. Benefits of performing Rathasapatami Puja: It benefits the mental, physical and emotional health of an individual. Favorable for couples who wish to have a son. Heals any kind of diseases and ailments, mainly eye or skin problems. It also grants good health by boosting immunity and increasing blood circulation. Provides the devotees with a dynamic personality by giving them confidence, power, and energy. Dissolving the sins of this life and the past, performing this puja liberates the soul from the cycle of life and death. Success, wisdom, name, fame, wealth, victory in challenges - performing this puja can benefit immensely. Brings peace, helps in progressing one's spiritual journey, gives clarity, reduces tensions and anxieties, and keeps one away from negative energies.  (Source: Anytime Astro website) Surya Namaskaras     All Bala Samskara Kendras in six different States in Bharat have performed Surya Namaskaras. It is performed through 12 spinal poses, which puts deep emphasis on breathing prominently. It is one of the most practiced Surya Namaskar styles and possibly the easiest one. Surya Namaskar starts with Pranamasana (Prayer Pose), followed by Hasta Uttanasana (Raised Arm Pose), then Hasta Padasana (Hand to Foot Pose), Parvatasana (Mountain Pose), Ashtanga Namaskara (Eight Limbed Pose), Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose), then again Parvatasana (Mountain Pose), Ashwa Sanchalanasana (Equestrian Pose), Hasta padasana, Hasta Uttarasana, Pranamasana.  Benefits of doing Surya Namaskar 1)    It helps to lose weight. 2)    It improves blood circulation and firms up the skin. 3)    It helps to maintain a healthy body. 4)    It lowers blood sugar level. 5)    It improves breathing. 6)    It calms the mind and helps enhance sleeping patterns. 7)     It improves concentration. 8)    It enhances memory power.

[GHHF] 750 Tribal and Poor Ladies mostly Christians were honored in Visakhapatnam

[GHHF] 750 Tribal and Poor Ladies mostly Christians were honored in Visakhapatnam Global Hindu Heritage Foundation in Collaboration with Sri Saidatta Manasa Peetham honored tribal and poor ladies in Vishakhapatnam area on Sunday (May 24th). Sri Sai Datta Swamiji went to few villages and tribal areas and invited them and explained the procedure. As some of you may be aware that many of them have been converted to Christianity.                GHHF is very much interested in reconverting the Christians into Hindu fold. Many of these people in these villages were converted with some inducement and by deception. Not knowing any thing about our culture and due to their lack of education, they converted to Christianity. Christianity prospers where there is ignorance. Christianity declines where there is high literacy. In  European countries, Christianity is declining and may be about 10 percent may be going to Churches.  Similarly, in USA also the number Christians attending the churches are declining year by year.                  It is our duty to look at the rate of conversion and how deceptively they are converting gullible and innocent Hindus is well documented. Many of the converted Christians have no idea why they are converted and have no clue about what they are talking. The Christian pastors have created so much fear among these people that Satan will haunt them if they go back to their ancestral religion.                Out of 750 ladies who came to function about 600 ladies are Christians. Sri Saidatta Swamy explained that they will be received by applying Tilak on their forehead and will also offer Prasadam for everybody to consume.                All the ladies who came to the ashram were given Kumkum, Turmeric, 5KG Rice, and one Saree. They were all given Prasad before they left. May of them even commented that Christianity does not belong to us. It is foreign. Our culture is ours to follow.                             We are very happy to see so many Christian ladies coming and receiving our Prasadam,  applying Tilak and chanting Jai Sree Ram three times. {{album_54}}
