[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.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendra Students – Organized Nagara Sankirtan in combined Celebration of Swami Vivekananda Birthday and Makara Sankranti

Mark Tully stated that “I have repented today: I do profoundly believe that India needs to be able to say with pride, “Yes, our civilization has a Hindu base to it.” The genius of Hinduism, the very reason it has survived so long, is that it does not stand up and fight. It changes and adapts and modernizes and absorbs–that is the scientific and proper way of going about it. I believe that Hinduism may actually prove to be the religion of this millennium, because it can adapt itself to change.” He also observed “Hindus are still slaves to MUSLIMS and CHRISTIANS.” Global Hindu Heritage is very happy to inform that we started about 18 Bala Samskar Kendras in and around Guntur to teach about the richness of Hinduism, Hindu festivals, Hindu ethos, Hindu History, and culture and traditions. Sri Rajesh is a very active member in the community championing the Hindu Values not only to the children but also actively involved in making the Hindus proud of their culture.  Sri Thunuguntla Ramesh and other teachers organized a very big program in the celebration of Swami Vivekananda Birthday and Makara Sankaranti by organizing Nagara Sankirtna in three Districts. They are: Guntur District Bapatla District and Palanadu District. Nagara Sankeerthana     Nagar sankirtan, is a tradition in the Indian religions involving the processional singing of holy hymns by a group in a residential area. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is credited with introduction of custom of Nagar kirtan, which included singing not only lyrical verses dedicated to Krishna but also chanting and singing them repetitively on the streets of city in form of a procession. Nagara Sankeerthana means organizing group chanting of religious songs selected a number songs on different Gods and Goddesses such as Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, Devi, Ganesh, Dattatrteya, Rama and other gods going around the streets either in the city, village or in the Ashram itself. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji of Avadhuta Datta Peetham conducts Nagara Sankeerthanas during new year in different cities – Mysore, Hyderabad and other cities. In 2013, following Nagara Sankeerthan in Hyderabd he said, “ Today we completed Nagara Sankeerthana for a second consecutive year victoriously, gloriously, happily, with devotion and focus! Who in the world doesn’t want the blessings of God and Guru? Nobody. If such people exist, they would be the most ignorant beings that ever existed. Everybody needs Guru’s blessings. I pray that His blessings last forever. We now reached the last part of Nagara Sankeeerthana programme. We started at one point, tried to cover as much distance as we can. Of course, we would like to cover up entire city of Hyderabad but that would take us three days or so! We covered about 8 kilometer radius, praying that we get rid of the kinds of hardships and get the 8 sidhis. With Gods grace, may the worlds be prosperous, happy, peaceful and courageous. With this wish, we sang His name on the streets, reached the starting point. After this, we are supposed to sit down for a while here and pray to God. This set of events have been an ancient tradition. We just followed all the steps in this tradition. We also witnessed prayers to Lord Rama. Let’s now sing one song on Lord Rama. Our Guru Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has written and composed thousands of bhajans because in this Kali Yuga, singing God’s praise is the most effective spiritual practice. This was also true for other Yugas as well. Today as we were singing in the streets, it felt like we were transported to Krita Yuga. Only by following dharma and ethics can we reach such a happy state. Following that ancient dharma, we performed Nagara Sankeerthana today. Let’s sing one of the thousands of Bhajans given to us by our Guru and then we will talk more about the importance of Nagara Sankeerthana. Everyone should sing with me. Bhajan removes fear and re-birth. It removes our sins and sorrows from our past lives as well. When we hear the sounds of songs, “it reverberates to a long distance. In the old world, they used to say that the sound of the bell on the hills of Tirupati used to be heard across the kingdom. The power of sound is such. This is a direct answer to those who wonder what good we are doing to the world by singing in the streets of Hyderabad. The waves of our sound reach far corners of the world and bring peace and happiness to the world. How much service can we do to the world? We have our human limitations. We can’t serve the world physically beyond those limitations. Only by singing God’s name with devotion, we can serve all the people in the world. This tradition has been followed by Lord Hanuman and other great men like Tumbura, Narada, Tyagaraja, MuthuSwami Deekshitulu, Shyama Shastry, Ramanujacharya, Madhvacharya and the like. Today, our Sadguru, the living incarnation of Datta Himself is promoting this tradition. This year’s Nagara Sankeerthana is the second. We did the first in the year of Nandana. We should do this every year. I pray God to make it possible.”  Sri Satya Sai Baba  is communicating to the whole world lessons in spiritual practices. One of the important items of these spiritual activities is Nagara Sankeerthana. Members should wake up in the Brahma muhurta (before sunrise), mentally intone the name of God, and also do it loudly so that others will hear it. All are to be woken up with God's name. All daily chores and disciplines should be carried out in God's name. Each member should encourage other members also to follow this ritual so that collectively all will dedicate their lives and work to God. This comprehensive programme of service is Nagara Sankeerthana. This sacred programme should be carried out in every hamlet, village, town and city. At dawn no other sound but the name of God should be heard. This will yield immense benefit. It purifies the mind as well as the environment. On waking, if one loudly intones the divine names of Rama, Krishna, Govinda, Damodara, Sankara, Durga and Lakshmi, one's heart gets cleared of impurity. Sathya (truth), Dharma (duty), Santhi (peace) and Prema (love) get firmly implanted there. Moreover, waking up in the Brahma Muhoortham is itself a wholesome habit. It is good for health; mind gets alert; heart is filled with happiness; all the organs are purified. Sri Sai Bhagavan has given instructions that all devotees should assemble at one place, conduct intonation of Pranavam (i.e. Om), and recite Suprabhatham. Afterwards they should go about on the streets of the town from 5 to 7 A.M. singing soulful devotional music with appropriate bhaav (content), raag (tune) and thala (rhythm in sounds which is reflected by cymbals, Mrithangam, tamboora etc).

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Tamil Nadu – 18 Families Returned to Hindu Dharma. Two families decided to embrace Hinduism on the Spot

Leo Tolstoy     “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.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very proud to organize Ghar Waapasi program and conduct about 12 Bala Samskar Kendras in Tamil Nadu. There is more to do. Please contact us if you want to be part of this mission to protect Bharata Mata. December, 2022 witnessed  a major Ghar Wapsi program in Tamil Nādu where 18 Christian families voluntarily converted back to their mother religion, Hinduism. This is the 3rd Ghar Wapsi program in the last six months in this district, all under the able leadership of our Karya kartha, Jayalakshmi Ji. RSS pracharakas from Chennai were invited as chief guests for the program. The spoke about the importance of Hinduism provided them a big welcome back to Hinduism and gave them an oath to take to never turn back from their religion. They also encouraged them to conduct Bhajans. Sri Srinivas Pinnamaneni from Visakhapatnam and Sri Sridhar from Bangalore made special trip to witness the Shuddhi program where these families were invited back to Hinduism. Prakasarao and his wife Nandini also attended and blessed them.      Sri Sridhar who works full time in Bangalore takes so much importance in GHHF activities. He knows Tamil language. He is our contact person with all the teachers and Ghar Waapasi volunteers. Without his active involvement, it is very hard to organize any of our activities. We thank him for his passion to serve Bharata Mata.     Three Priests conducted two hours of Homas purifying the environment and preparing the converts to invite them back to Hinduism. The Priests chanted shanti Mantras and blessed them with health and wellbeing, They exhorted them to be goog human beings and live fearless life, God in benevolent and never punish you for not belonging to one religion. GHHF coordinator on the ground Smt. Jayalakshmi ji has been tirelessly working for the last several months to identify various Christian families in and around Kadalur village in Chengalpattu district of Tamilnadu, that had converted to Christianity under false pretexts and are unhappy in that religion. She has been regularly talking to them about the fraudy nature of Christian conversions and explaining to them about the virtues of our own religion. 18 such families realized the truth in Hinduism and voluntarily agreed to come back to their mother religion. Some of them have been going to Church for 3 months and some of them have been going for the last 5 years with Baptism completed and everything in between. Jayalakshmi ji and 2 Bal Sanskar teachers belonging to this district, took up the job of honoring these families as they came back to their religion.     Also, more than 150 students attended to celebrate the first anniversary of initiating Bala Samskar Kendras. More than 600 people attended the program and all of them were served meals. 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.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendra Students in Assam were taught about Swami Vivekananda, his life, meeting with Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, and his visit to Chicago

Leo Tolstoy     “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.”    Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very proud to say that we are teaching our Bala Samskar Students about the greatness and life stories of national heroes, famous people, and great saints. This week we talked about Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekanandaji's original name was Narendra Nath. He was born on 12th January 1863 at Kolkata (Swamiji's Jayanti i.e. birth anniversary is celebrated as 'International Youth Day'). Right from childhood, two aspects of his behavior could clearly be noticed. One was his devout and compassionate nature and the other was his readiness to perform any act of courage. Since his whole family was spiritually inclined, he received an appropriate religious upbringing. Swami Vivekananda was admitted to the school founded by Mr. Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar in 1870. While in school he focused both on studies as well as bodybuilding. He had great respect for his mother tongue. One such incident was when he had an English language class in school, he said, "I shall not learn the language of the white master." At least for 7 - 8 months, he abstained from learning that language. Later he learned English owing to compulsion.  Swami Vivekananda stood first in his matriculation examination and added to the glory of his family and school. Then he joined the Presidency College in Kolkata and completed his M.A. in Philosophy. Meeting his Guru and accepting Sanyas by Swami Vivekananda Dr. Ramchandra Dutt, a relative of Narendra who had been raised in his house was a disciple of Shri Ramkrishna Paramhansa. He noticed that Narendra was inspired by religious feelings to such an extent that he was contemplating renunciation in his childhood itself. He once told Narendra, “Brother, if your only goal in life is to further the enhancement of our religion, then do not get involved in the Brahmo Samaj or others. You go to Dakshineshwari and meet Shri Ramkrishna.” Narendra met Shri Ramkrishna at his neighbor Surendranath’s house itself. Initially, for some days Shri Ramkrishna did not allow Narendranath to leave his side even for a moment. He made Narendra sit next to him and gave him much advice & counsel. The two of them would have great discussions when alone.   Shri Ramkrishna had decided to give Narendra the responsibility of carrying on his incomplete mission. One day Shri Ramkrishna wrote on a piece of paper, “Narendra will perform the task of enlightening the masses.” Somewhat hesitantly Narendranath replied, “I won’t be able to do all this.” Shri Ramkrishna immediately spoke with great resolve, “What? Won’t be able? Your bones will perform this task?” Later Shri Ramkrishna initiated Narendranath on the path of Sanyas and gave him the name Swami Vivekanand. Establishment of Ramkrishna Mission by Swami Vivekananda Swami Vivekananda along with Taraknath, another disciple of Ramkrishna, established the Ramkrishna Mission after the Mahasamadhi of Shri Ramkrishna Paramhansa. It began its activities from a dilapidated building at Varahnagar, near Kolkata. Earlier it was believed that this place was a haunted house. Vivekanandakept Shri Ramkrishna’s mortal ashes and some other objects used by him, at this place. Soon Shri Ramkrishna’s disciples started living there. Importance of Swami Vivekananda Swami Vivekananda putting a curb on conversions with his stormy propagation of ‘Vedanta’ in other countries India was ruled by the British during the period of Swami Vivekananda. Owing to the influence of the British education system, their culture, the strategies of Christian missionaries misleading people, and their literature, the affluent class in Bharat developed an inferiority complex feeling that Hindu Dharma and culture are of very low standard, inhuman and barbarian. Many Hindus would have been baptized and adopted Christianity, but there is no doubt that it was curbed due to the fiery propagation of ‘Vedanta’ in other countries by Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekananda gave the message of spiritual unison and creating new consciousness among the youth   Swami Vivekananda represented India and consequently, Hindu Dharma in a world conference held in Chicago for all religions in the year 1893. Swami Vivekananda gave a message of spiritual unity to the world at this conference. He also emphasized that along with spiritual progress, materialistic/worldly progress was equally important. Swami Vivekananda's guidance helped to generate new consciousness and enthusiasm amongst the youth. Swami Vivekananda awakened patriotism and enthusiasm amongst people through spiritual discourses Continuous invasions, immorality, looting, oppression of their women, and violence had crushed Hindus mentally. Swami Vivekananda undertook the mission of propagating the message of Ramakrishna and pulling out Hindus from the depression and defeated mentality generated amongst people. Swami Vivekananda traveled all over India for this great mission and created enthusiasm and patriotism amongst people through his spiritual discourses. Moreover, he made the whole world realize the importance of Hindu Dharma and Hindustan.       - Gurudev Kate swamiji (Saptahik Sanatan Chintan, 28th September 2006, Issue No. 37) Swami Vivekananda shines at the World Parliament of Religions The premonition regarding the visit to Chicago Swami Vivekananda was half asleep one night, he saw a miraculous dream. Shri Ramkrishna’s blazing form was moving ahead over the seas and beckoning Swamiji to follow him. Swami Vivekananda opened his eyes. His heart was filled with indescribable ecstasy. At the same time, he heard very clearly a divine voice saying, “Go”. Then he resolved to go abroad and completed all arrangements within a day or two. Departure for the World Parliament of Religions Swami Vivekananda left the Indian shores, aboard the ship, ‘Peninsular’ on 31st May 1893. He reached Vancouver port in Canada on 15th July. From there he traveled by train to the famous city of Chicago in America. He came to know that a World Parliament of Religions was going to be held on 11th September.   Swami Vivekananda did not have the Invite required to participate in this conference. Further even the date to register as a Representative had lapsed. Yet, wherever he went people were attracted to him. On the very first day, he met Prof. J.H. Wright, who was teaching Greek at Harward University. The two of them conversed for almost four hours. The professor was so impressed by Swami Vivekananda’s talent and intellect that he accepted the responsibility of giving Swamiji admittance to the World Parliament of Religions as a representative. Swami Vivekananda participates in the Chicago Interfaith conference Swami Vivekananda proved to be a true representative of Hinduism as he made his fervent appeal for tolerance to the whole world from the dais of the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago on 11th September 1893. It must have been a divine plan to allow this saint to introduce the world to the great Hindu Dharma. This conference was inaugurated with the Chanting of Hymns by the various religious heads. It was a melodious beginning to the conference. On the dais, at the center, was the religious head of the Roman Catholic Sect of America. Swami Vivekananda was not the representative of any particular sect. He had arrived at the conference as the representative of the Sanatan Hindu Vaidik Dharma of all Bharatvarsha. The conference was attended by almost 6 to 7 thousand ladies and gentlemen. As per the instructions from the chairperson, each representative on the dais was reading out his pre-prepared speech. Swami Vivekananda had not prepared any written speech. Finally, he stood up from his seat having sent a silent prayer to his Guru. He addressed the conference with the words, “Sisters and brothers of America”. These words had such miraculous strength in them that those thousands gathered stood up and there was continuous applause. The emotional appeal in those compassionate words had stirred every heart. It was the first time ever that any orator had referred to the whole of mankind as ‘Sisters and brothers’. Further, he entranced all present with his brilliant and powerful oration. Swami Vivekananda felt that the Hindu Samaj has the potential to become the spiritual teacher to the world. After centuries someone had again shown the Hindu society its own wide horizons. Yet Swami ji did not criticize any religion. He did not degrade any religion. He only wiped the dirt that had accumulated on the Hindu Dharma owing to its ill-treatment and affronts at the hands of its invaders. Swami Vivekananda showed Hindu Dharma its own irradiant self and placed it on the highest pedestal of the World Parliament of Religions. When speaking about Hindusthan, he says that it is a sacred land, a land with a divine purpose. Hindusthan is the abode of spirituality and introspection. Right from the ancient ages, founders of religious tenets were born here. They satiated the scorched earth with the cooling waters of the Eternal truth - Sanatan Satya. It’s the only land where one can experience not only tolerance but also affection for other religions.  Swami Vivekananda's sermons Swami Vivekananda returned back to Kolkata to a grand welcome after projecting Bharat in its deserved glory. ‘The Plan of my movement’, ’Vedant in everyday life of Bharat’, ‘Our duty for the day’, ‘The great sons of Bharat’, and ‘ Future of Bharat’ were some of the subjects on which he started delivering lectures. His language at all times remained resplendent throughout all his speeches. His incisive thoughts had a great impact on both Indian as well as foreign minds. He could spread the message of Vedant all around the world. Thus he won for Arya dharma, Arya people and Arya land its rightful prestigious position. ‘Real Sanyas is to sacrifice the self for the betterment of others Swami Vivekananda held a lot of respect for the spiritual heritage of Bharat, but he did attack through his speeches its undesirable customs and the abominable caste system. Thus his speeches served as a wake-up call even to Hindu society. His ardent appeal stuck lightening in the hearts of his dormant countrymen.  His natural state of being would have been to meditate on the formless eternal entity i.e. Nirvikar Samadhi. Yet he set aside his own renunciation and thought about the mortal struggles, sorrows, and joys of common people; throughout his life, he strived for their upliftment. ‘Real Sanyas is to sacrifice the self for the betterment of others’ – he lived this axiom. WE NEED YOUR HELP Ghar Waapasi is going on unimpeded. We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more people who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi.

[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}}
