[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Students learned about the life of Sant Ravidas, his miracles and his teachings.

•Sylvia Levi  "She (India) has left indelible imprints on one-fourth of the human race in the course of a long succession of centuries. She has the right to reclaim... her place amongst the great nations summarizing and symbolizing the spirit of humanity. From Persia to the Chinese sea, from the icy regions of Siberia to Islands of Java and Borneo, India has propagated her beliefs, her tales, and her civilization!" Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to announce that we are conducting 175 Bala Samskar Kendras to make sure our our children, who are our heritage and future, are enriched with our timeless wisdom to ensure the preservation and protection of Hindu ideals and morals.  THIS WEEK, Sant Ravidas Jayanti is CELBRATED BY OUR Bala Samskar Kendras. The birthday of Guru Ravidas, celebrated on Magha Purnima, the full moon day in the month of Magha month. It is the annual focal point for the Ravidas’ religion. People across countries celebrate this special occasion in India. Also, devotees take a holy dip in the river to perform rites. The 2023 date for the Jayanti was February 5 on Magha Purnima. Ravidas Jayanti marks the birth of Ravidas Ji. Ravidas Ji is well-known for making efforts in eradicating the caste system. He has also contributed to the Bhakti movement and is well-recognized as a good friend and disciple of Kabir Ji. Mirabai was his disciple. His parents were cobblers and belonged to the “Chamar Community” and were considered untouchables then. He has taken up his family profession, but majority of his time was spent in listening to spiritual discourses of saints at banks of river Ganges. Being constantly in the company of saints, he too started writing mystic poems. His literary work is included in Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji of Sikhs and Panchvani of Dadu Panthis. Forty-one of his mystic poems are included in the Sacred Book-Shri Guru Granth Sahib ji of the Sikh community. Who Was the Guru of Saint Ravidas? Initially, Sant Ravidas took Naam Diksha (initiation) from Ramanand who a follower of Supreme Almighty Kabir Saheb Ji was. Being spiritually inclined, sage Ravidas got deeply engrossed in the way of worship given by Ramanand. Later on God Kabir Saheb gave him initiation and enlightened him about the existence of the True Almighty and the correct way of worship to be adopted to attain Him. On the advice of Kabir Das, Meerabai went to meet Saint Ravidas, but he advised her that she should think about her decision of making him her guru as he was untouchable. But Meerabai insisted that she doesn’t care about his caste and is seeking her welfare. Saint Ravidas informed Almighty Kabir Saheb about this. He asked Saint Ravidas to initiate her. This is how Meerabai became one of his disciples. Miracles of Sant Ravidas Once a few people from Saint Ravidas’s village were going to take a bath in the Holy Ganges. They asked Saint Ravidas to join them. Sage Ravidas said he couldn’t join them but asked them to offer one coin to goddess Ganga on his behalf only if she takes it personally, else bring it back. Those people made fun of his condition but took the coin. When they reached the bank of river Ganga, they asked goddess Ganga (Controller of River Ganga) to come and take Sage Ravidas’s coin personally. Immediately two hands appeared from the river. One was empty and the other hand was holding a gold bangle. One of those people offered the coin and in exchange of that coin goddess Ganga offered him the gold bangle and asked him to give it to Sage Ravidas. After getting the gold bangle, this person became greedy and thought what would a sage like Ravidas do with this bangle? Instead, I will give it to the queen and get some reward for it. When he took the bangle to the queen, the queen insisted on having a pair of those bangles since the bangle was very beautiful. Since it was a present from goddess Ganga, he failed to get the second bangle. The king got agitated and threatened him with his life. This scared him to a great extent and compelled him to visit sage Ravidas and narrate the entire story. Sage Ravidas said that he can take a bangle from the vessel he used to keep his thread and leather in water for shoe making. Even though the feeling was gross enough, he immersed his hand in that vessel. He realised that there were many such bangles in that vessel. Meerabai became his disciple She met Guru Ji several times with her grandfather and was much influenced by him. After her marriage, she and her husband were blessed by Guru Ji, Later she accepted Guru Ji as her real Guru. In one of her songs, she said that: “Guru milya Ravidas ji dini gyan ki gutki. Chot lagi nijnam hari ki mharey hivrey khatki”. Devotional songs Because of his charismatic deeds, he has become an important figure in the Whole World, his followers who call themselves Ravidasis refer to him as their Guru, a term still used across India today. He was the first to motivate his followers to make/call them untouchables who make/call them so. By his deeds he proved that he was closer to God than those who were calling him ' low caste'. He was the first to attack the Hindu caste system. His devotional songs and verses made a lasting impact in the Bhakti movement. How to escape? I recite the name Ram. Lord, if you are sandalwood, I am water; with the fragrance in all parts of my body. Lord, if you are a cloud, I am a peacock; looking for you like a chakora for the moon. Lord, if you are a lamp, I am the wick (bAti); with the light burning day and night. Lord, if you are a pearl, I am the thread; together like gold and suhaga. Lord, you are the master and I servant; thus is the devotion of Raidas. WE NEED YOUR HELP Ghar Waapasi is going on unimpeded.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur and Madanapalli in AP– Promoting and Conducting Bhajans and talked about the importance of Satsang to create Hindu Unity.

Sir William Jones:  “I am no Hindu, but I hold the doctrine of the Hindus concerning a future state (rebirth) to be incomparably more rational, more pious, and more likely to deter men from vice than the horrid opinions inculcated by Christians on punishments without end. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform the consistent and persistent at tempts to organize Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur and Madanapalli towns in AP. Sri Gopi Chary Garu from Anantapur and Sri Gopal from Madanapalli have been talking the villagers and also the Temple authorities to commence Bhajan sessions to create harmony and unity among Hindus but it will create subtle vibrations to bring harmony and mutual understanding Conducted Bhajan Sessions in two towns Sri Gopi Chary and Sri Gopal organized Bhajan sessions in the Temples in these two towns.  Majority of the people living in the village are Dalits and about half Christians. Through the GHHF, few Christian families returned to Hinduism. It was decided that we organize these Bhajans in the village to reinforce the faith among Hindu Dalits and at the same invite Christian families as well as ex-Christians.          Before the Bhajan session started, our Coordinators asked ever body to do Sankalp by saying their names, Gotras and nakshatras; and the reason the puja is being conducted. He explained the importance of Bhajans.      Hindu scriptures states that in Kaliyuga, people have disturbed mind, experience restlessness and lack peace of mind. They live in an environment where their mind gets agitated . By chanting the names of Bhagawan, one gets peace of mind as they concentrate on the image of Goddess. Devotional singing, known as bhajans or kirtan, can help to quiet the mind so that the heart can open to the divine, allowing us to taste the blissful reality that is our true nature. Everyone is encouraged to sing and express their inner joy. Devotion is the most important aspect of kirtan. To gain concentration in this age of materialism, bhajan is easier than meditation. By loud singing, other distracting sounds will be overcome and concentration will be achieved. Bhajan, concentration and meditation, this is the progression. Bhajan is important for the devotee because it is intimate and free in expression. Bhajan preserves India’s rich legacy of devotion, wisdom and mysticism from saints like Meerabai, Tulsidas, Kabir, Surdas, Thyagaraja, Purandaradasa, Tukaram, Namdev, and many, many others. Paramahansa Yogananda says “Sankirtans or musical gatherings are an effective form of yoga or spiritual discipline, necessitating intense concentration, absorption in the seed thought and sound. Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word, sound exercises on him a potent and immediate effect.”  As per much research, it has been found that listening to bhajans and chants, increases the activity in the cells which releases Feel good hormone “Dopamine”. It is also referred by various studies that listening to bhajans activates our brain which makes us more analytical and Attentive, hence most people prefer to listen in the morning. Doctors at Cleveland University reported that the rhythmic tones involved in chanting release a cascade of naturally healing chemicals. Imagine feeling good naturally without a pill. They called it the NLE, or Neurolinguistic Effect. Yogis call it a type of samadhi – a profound sense ofpeacefulness. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji says Bhajan singing (singing of God's name) is one of the main methods that Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji propagates as a part of the Yoga System. According to Sri Swamiji, "The chanting and singing of God's name is the sheet anchor in all critical situations and crisis. In this Kali Yuga, Divya Naama Sankeertana (singing of God's name) is the easiest and the most effective means to invoke the mercy of the Lord." As He often says, "Just as Bhojana (food) is for the body, Bhajans are for the Soul". Pujya Sri Swamiji has composed thousands of devotional bhajans in different languages. Devotees of Sri Swamiji gather in satsang groups all over the world to sing Sri Swamiji's soul-stirring Bhajans. Many devotees experience that this is one of the best ways to feel divine presence in their hearts.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Alluri Seetharamaraju District in AP – 48 Families Returned to Hindu Dharma

•Wheeler Wilcox  "India—The land of Vedas, the remarkable works contain not only religious ideas for a perfect life but also facts which science has proved true. Electricity, radium, electronics, airship, all were known to the seers who founded the Vedas." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association with Sri Saidatta Manasa Peetham has been planning to organize this Ghar Waapasi in the Vishakhapatnam area. Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swami and his disciples went to many villages and talked about the richness of our culture knowing that they became Christians not because of the message of the Bible but because of their financial circumstances, health-related issues, deceptive interpretation of Hindu scriptures, and demeaning the multiplicity of Gods and Goddesses. 48 Christian families returned to Hindu Dharma with hard work 48 Christian families from Sundruputtu village in the agency area returned to Hinduism.  Sri Swamiji team has been working hard for over a year to convince them to return to Sanatana Dharma.  All 46 families and 2 Priest families left their Christian faith after extensive discussions and finally agree and participated in Pujas and Homas. They have taken a vow to remain Hindus. They have been chanting Rama Nama and Hanuman Nama very frequently.   Sri Swamiji has been visiting this village for several months. Sri Saidatta Manasa Swami performed Puja inviting these 44 Christians back to Hinduism. He asked their name individually and asked them whether they will go to Church or Devalayam. Each one said they will only go to the Temple, not the Church. He asked them to be on guard about the deceptive techniques Christians use to entrap them. He said that they have no business coming to the villages without approval. He said if somebody comes to our house, don’t you think they will tell us who they are and why they come. If they are coming to convert our Hindus, we should drive them away. We should not even allow them to talk about their religion. For the sake of our culture, and our children, we should practice our customs. All of them said they would protect Sanatana Dharma and would resist Christian aggression.                    Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swami has been trekking these remote villages for several years. He has a very good knowledge of the area, its valleys, its accessibility, and the right time to visit the village. Many of these villages cannot be easily reached as there are no proper roads. GHHF appreciates his dedication and persistence to work in these remote villages and bring these Christians back to Hinduism. Sri Sai Datta Mansa Swamy has been visiting this village for more than three months and started talking to you and seeking their help to help the needy. Then he started talking about the difference between Hinduism and Christianity. He emphasized the importance of the scientific nature of our Hindu customs and how our families maintain unity and look at the welfare of all the people irrespective of their religion. He gave several examples of hatred that are found in the Bible and compared them with Hindu scriptures that emphasize love, compassion, and peace. Sri Swamiji goes to several small villages in the Agency area on a regular basis. Some of the villages cannot be reached by road. They are in remote places and Christians converted some of them. Pastors come to these remote villages once in a while, not on a regular basis. Swamiji visited these villages and talked about the differences between Hindu culture and Christianity. He started off by asking all those assembled Christians to chant Om Namo Narayanaya and Om Namah Sivaya three times in each mantra. With persistence and determination, Sri Swamiji welcomed about 80 Christians back to Hinduism and honored them with Sarees, God’s picture, Kumkum, Turmeric, copper ring, and other items. Appropriately inviting them spiritually and by conducting religious ceremonies. Any rational, objective and logical person would know how an illiterate person who cannot read or write even a single sentence becomes a Christian overnight and throws away the Hindu Gods' pictures and even steps on them to please the pastors. Christian Pastors are the cruelest and most deceptive people waiting like vultures to snatch away the Hindus. The Bible is full of contradictions and also offensive to humanity irrespective of one’s faith. Sri Swamiji was able to convince the Youth about God’s qualities such as being omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. Hatred as we see in the Bible is not the quality of any God. We have provided enough information from the Bible about the abuse of idols, how Jesus propagated division in the families, how the churches create fear among the followers, and how it was sexually perverted. Sri Swamiji and his Associates have collected so much information about what is happening in the churches, how they are discriminating against the converted Dalits, how they are made to sit in the back seats, and how they are forced to contribute 10% of their income. They even showed how the Pastors live, their houses, and their lifestyles. WE NEED YOUR HELP We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more people who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi. We have employed 26 people so far. More people we hire, more villages can be covered to welcome them back and also create Chaitanya (Awareness) among the students and villagers. 1) Donate any amount to help the Dharma Pracharaks to work at the ground level. 2) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year.

[GHHF] Spoke at Aksharabhyasam function on Vasantpanchami day on January 26th at Sishu Mandir in Kandi, Telangana State

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Author  "In the great books of India, an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence, which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the questions that exercise us." Sishu Mandir in Kandi Village organized Aksharabhyasam for about 25 children aged 2-3 on January 26th which happens to be Vasantpanchami Day in Kandi Village in Telangana. We have a long association with the school for decades. In fact my wife’s brother and his children donated to build third floor for the school and renovation of some part of the building.      I spoke on the occasion to impress upon the importance of education as well as teaching about the Hindu dharma. We have to impart the individual responsibility and parents must play a major role in instilling the moral compass. We have to make sure that our children would appreciate the richness and width of our Hindu Dharma.      Parents are urged to learn about our dharma and it is not late to learn the greatness of our culture. Other religions are taking advantage of our lack of knowledge and try to allure our children by enticing them with biscuits and chocolates etc. and take them to their churches and brain wash them. Once we start teaching about our dharma and how it is universal, our children would be our ambassadors. I requested them to make sure that they would not tell them that they do not know if their children ask them questions. We requested them to consult the teachers at Sishu Mandir and fill their minds with the nector of wisdom.      If we fill the glass with right kind of information, no body can fill it with dirt. Education must be used for skill development as well as development of personalities with morals and character. We should emulate the qualities of our Gods and Goddesses.  Aksharabhyasam is a Sanskrit word. The word is a combination of two letters: Akshara means ‘letters / alphabets’ and Abhyasam means ‘practice’. Aksharabhyasam means “the study of practical letters”. In this function a child is given initiation for writing / education. With this function the child is ready to receive formal education in a school. The function is performed in different ways in different regions of India. Aksharabhyasam is a traditional religious ceremony in which the child is given initiation of Education. It involves worship of Goddess Saraswati. Aksharabhyasam includes pre-writing skill which is initiated when the child is as young as 2 years old. It is not about mastering the art of writing but developing skills to help train small muscles in the child’s hands and fingers so they can complete the motions necessary to eventually form letters. Normally the child sits in his father's or maternal uncle's lap for 'aksharabhyasam'. The child is made to hold a plate full of rice grains spread on it or a slate. The person in whose lap the child sits, holds its hand (normally right hand) and makes him / her write the first letters which are either 'AUM' or 'Om Namah Sivaya' in regional language after the pooja is performed by the priest. Vasant Panchami day is dedicated to Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, music, arts, science and technology. Goddess Saraswati is worshipped on Vasant Panchami day. Vasant Panchami is also known as Shri Panchami and Saraswati Panchami It is believed that without Saraswati the world would be shrouded in ignorance, as she is the one who represents enlightenment. Basant Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day (Panchami Tithi) in the Hindu month of Magha, Shukla Paksha. Basant Panchami is the time when people start giving the first lessons on education to their children. This custom is referred to as Vidyarambam. It is also known as Aksharabhyasam.

Supreme Court says let religious people manage the Ahobila Temple, not Executive Officer. It declined to entertain A.P. government appeal against High Court order regarding Ahobila temple

The State High Court decision was that only the Mattadhipathis of the Ahobilam Math, and not the Executive Officer appointed under the State's religious endowments law, can be in charge of the Ahobilam temple's administration January 27, 2023 02:16 pm | Updated January 28, 2023 12:35 am IST - NEW DELHI The Supreme Court of India is illuminated in the colours of the national flag on Republic Day’s eve, in New Delhi, on Jan. 25, 2023.  The Supreme Court on January 27 declined to entertain an appeal by the Andhra Pradesh government against a State High Court decision that only the Mathadipathi of the Ahobilam Math, and not the Executive Officer appointed under the State's religious endowments law, can be in charge of the Ahobilam temple's administration. A Bench led by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul asked why the State should intervene in a temple's affairs. “Why are you stepping into that? Let the temple people deal with it... Why should religious places not be left to religious people?” the court asked senior advocate Niranjan Reddy, appearing for the Andhra Pradesh government. Senior advocates Satish Parasaran, C. Sridharan, and advocates Vipin Nair and P.B. Suresh appeared for the caveators. The High Court had, in its judgment in October last year, held that the Sri Ahobilam Mutt Parampara Aadheena Sri Lakshmi Swamy Ahobilam Devasthanam, known to be one of the oldest of temples, has been associated with the Math due to common religious practices and involvement in administration. The temple was "necessarily a part and parcel, and an integral and inseparable part" of the Ahobilam Math. The High Court had concluded that only the Mathadipathi of the Ahobilam Math could be in charge of the administration of the temple and not an Executive Officer appointed by the Commissioner of the State Endowments Department under Section 29 of the Andhra Pradesh Religious Endowments and Charitable Institutions Act of 1987. The State had argued that a "Math is an independent juristic person". Similarly, a temple is also an independent juristic person. "This being the situation, a temple, definitionally, can never be a part of the Math or the same as the Math, since they are two separate individual juristic entities," the State argued in its appeal. It said that at best it could be argued that the juristic person, the Ahobilam Math, through its Mathadipathi, was "managing the affairs of the juristic person, the temple". "It can never lead to a conclusion that the Math and the temple are the same entity, as held by the High Court. This finding is incongruous and therefore completely unsustainable," the State had contended. The devotees, in their original petition before the High Court, had argued that the State did not have any authority to appoint an Executive Officer for the Math or the temple under the 1987 Act. Maths were accorded a special status in law and given the right to manage their own affairs. https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/sc-declines-to-entertain-ap-government-appeal-against-hc-order-regarding-ahobilam-temple/article66439146.ece

[GHHF] Bharata Mata under Attack; Stop being Spectators, Act Immediately

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2qb_BduTtI&t=3s Speech discussed about different aspects that are affecting the very existence of Bharata Mata – Sanatana Dharma. It is amazing to know that India is the only country that does not teach about the greatness of her own Dharma. We did not teach our children about the Scientific advances, different dynasties that enriched our culture, the voluminous literature, and the admiration of Nobel laureates. We as Hindus are failing our Bharata Mata, not protecting her from being strangled. Hindus are responsible for not guarding her. If we do not rise up and act together, we may be looking at the potential demise of Sanatana Dharma. We as individual Hindus must take it as a mission to protect. Time is running out. Stop being a spectator, act immediately.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras in Assam – Students learned about Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, his life and his service to Motherland

Max Mueller, German scholar  "If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India." On January 23, Bala Samskar Kendra students in Assam celebrated 125th birthday of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The country also commemorates Netaji’s birthday as Parakram Diwas in honour of his legendary perseverance and immense contribution to the Indian independence fight. He founded the Azad Hind Fauj military regiment in order to resist the British. Bose also founded the female battalion known as the Rani Jhansi regiment. Bose was the first to proclaim that Mahatma Gandhi was the father of the nation.  Sri Samrat Dutt, who is the coordinator of GHHF activities in Assam says: “Bala Samskar Kendras of Assam celebrated the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. Students dressed like Subhash Bose, recited the poem on Subhash Bose, organized Memory Test, delivered Speech on Subhash Bose, conducted various out door game competition organized by the Bala Samskar Kendras and after that prizes we're also distributed amongst the participants.” Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi said "Today, it is a proud moment for me as I address the people of Andamans because this is the land, where Subhas Chandra Bose unfurled the national flag for the first time in 1943."  He exhorting youths to "read more and more", Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged them to read biographies and autobiographies to get inspiration. "Read more and more, but if you get a chance read biographies and autobiographies. These books will inspire you and you can implement them in your life," he said. President Droupadi Murmu pays tribute to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 126th birth anniversary, at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi. In 1921, Bose joined the patriot development drove by Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian Public Congress. He followed Jawaharlal Nehru to administration in a gathering inside the Congress which was less enthusiastic about protected change and more open to socialism. Bose became Congress president in 1938. So to wish your friends and family You can use the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Jayanti Wishes given in this article below. Subhash Chandra Bose was one of the greatest leaders of India. He is famous by the name of Netaji. He gave up his life for his motherland. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was born on 23 January 1897 in Cuttack. His father was a famous lawyer. Netaji was a brilliant student who had scored the second position in the matriculation exam. He completed his B.A Hons. in Philosophy in 1918 from the University of Calcutta. He later went to England in September 1919, for further studies. Netaji was selected for the Indian Civil Service but he did not want to stay in England and serve the British government. So, he quit his job and started fighting for the freedom of India. The Azad Hind Fauj was formed by Subhash Chandra bose. He coined the term ‘Jai indi’. His charisma and powerful personality inspired many people into the freedom struggle andcontinues to inspire Indians. It is believed that he died in a plane crash on 18th August 1945, Though Netaji is no more in this world, yet his name will ever shine.

[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}}
