GHHF Karthik Deepam offered on Yogula Parvatham (Mountain of Yogis) near Tirupati

“In religion all other countries are paupers; India is the only millionaire." When traveling through India, he had exclaimed that though a week had only seven days, Indians seemed to celebrate eight festivals every week.” Mark Twain It is believed that many Yogis (Saints) do meditation on this mountain for many centuries.  We do not get to see them. It is exceedingly difficult to reach the mountain as there is no thoroughfare. People have to trek for close to four hours even though the height may be about two kilometers. They have to go round and round to reach as the way is filled with rocks, thorns, and shrubs. Very few people know about the Yogula Parvatham to visit.                This year about 2000 people braved the arduous task of climbing the mountain to witness the Karthik Deepam similar to Arunachala. It took as much as 4 hours to reach the mountain to have darshan of Lord Shiva and Deepam.                Global Hindu Heritage Foundation participated to make the function successful. Our Associates K Reddappa and K Subbanna in Tirupati spent considerable time to help transport oil cans, Rice bags, Ghee bottles, Vegetables, spices, pooja items, a large Drum used as pramida, and water. GHHF/ Savetemples office distributed energy water for the people who were climbing the hill. Helped in arranging the meals for the people who went to witness the Karthik Deepam.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Maheshwaram Mandal in Rangareddy District in Telangana.

The Christian god is a three-headed monster; cruel, vengeful, and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three-headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites. Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) is incredibly happy to announce that we collaborated with the Nitya Satyam organization to conduct the Ghar Waapasi program in Maheshwaram Mandal in Rangareddy District in Telangana State. Lakshmi Nivas has been actively going around the area and talking about how to resist the Christian force and pressure to convert.   Nivas distributed a 4-page flyer containing information about the laws related to the construction of Churches and missionary activities. It included the rights Hindus have and how they can defend themselves from these missionaries lawfully.   ITEMS: GHHF prepared a packet containing  Upper Garment for me, blouse piece for women, Rama Parivar Photo, Sticker with Ram, Kumkum Bharani, Hanuman flag, and other items. They are all packed in a plastic bag. GHHF is committed to engaging in Ghar Waapasi by giving utmost importance to welcome the converted Christians back to Hindus who may have drifted away for different reasons without full comprehension. This is the only way to bring back those who took the wrong path for different reasons. 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 7 people so far.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Balaapur Mandal in Rangareddy District in Telangana; 6 Families were honored with few Items

Viceroy Antano de Noronha issued in 1566, an order applicable to GOA under Portuguese rule "I hereby order that in any area owned by my master, the king, nobody should construct a Hindu temple and such temples already constructed should not be repaired without my permission. If this order is transgressed, such temples shall be, destroyed and the goods in them shall be used to meet expenses of holy deeds, as punishment of such transgression." This order killed thousands of Hindus and the atrocities committed on Hindus are brutal, bloody, and cruel. History has never witnessed this kind of ruthlessness anywhere in the world. It is called Goa Inquisition. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) is incredibly happy to announce that we collaborated with the Nitya Satyam organization to conduct the Ghar Waapasi program in Balaapur Mandal in Ranga Reddy in Telangana State.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Swarna Bharati Colony in Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh

Mark Twain: "I believe that the Old and New Testaments were imagined and written by man, and that no line in them was authorized by God, much less inspired by Him." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation organized Ghar Waapasi program in Swarna Bharati Colony in Guntur District in Andhra Pradesh. So far, we could not engage in the effort in this district due to Coronavirus. Our Associate Anil Kumar went to many houses talked to them individually, distributed the flyers, and also met Hindus who were converted to Christianity. Many of them are receptive to hear what we are trying to say and started reading about what is happening in Andhra Pradesh. GHHF has prepared a 4-page document talking about the rights of Hindus to face the ruthless Christian missionaries and also showing some of the ex-Christians’ experience of being a Christian. Mark Twain mentioned that the Bible was written by a man and no line was authorized by God. As we all know there are so many verses that are the antithesis to morals, ethics, and character. Bible is full of contradictions and also offensive to humanity irrespective of one’s faith. We have provided enough information from the Bible about the abuse of idols, about how Jesus propagated division in the families, how the churches create fear among the followers, and how it was sexually perverted. Our 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. As you all aware, the Hindu population is declining due to massive Christian efforts to convert as many people as possible. While we keep writing books and articles, engage in endless discussions, organizing Conferences, and participating in demonstrations, we are losing our Hindus day by day. If all the efforts we were doing till now had some impact on reversing the trend, it would have been great. As we concentrate on our intellectual endeavors, Christians are concentrating on conversion. It is time for all the intellectuals and activists to pause a few minutes and look at the ground realities. Our intellectual endeavors and activists’ protests are not reaching the villages where conversion is rampant. You cannot ignore or turn away from what is happening on the ground. 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 7 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.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi is organized in Renigunta Mandalam near Tirupati.

"The Bible is full of fairy tales and anyone who believes in the bible is unfit to be a parent or vote . ... (It) is a false book, that must be burned and buried... Jehovah is no God, but a barbarous tribal idol. " George Bernard Shaw Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized Ghar Waapasi program in Renigunta Madalam and visited two villages – Vedallacheruvu and Yanadikalani - and talked to them about our efforts to welcome them back to the Hindu field. K. Reddappa and K. Subbanna have started the program and have been working on this matter. They distributed 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. As you all are aware, the Hindu population is declining due to massive Christian efforts to convert as many people as possible. While we keep writing books and articles, engage in endless discussions, organizing Conferences, and participating in demonstrations, we are losing our Hindus day by day.

GHHF instrumental for G O declaring Karthik Purnima as Nadula Arthi Day in 2012: Now Arthi to Krishna and Godavari Rivers is Done Daily.

In 2012, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation with instrumental in convincing the then Honorable Minister of Endowments of Andhra Pradesh, Sri C. Ramachandraiah to declare Karthik Purnima as Nadula Arthi Day across the state. The Government of Andhra Pradesh issued G. O. (Government Order) requiring the major Hindu Temples close to the sacred rivers in the State to conduct Arthi to the rivers. Krishna, Godavari, and Tungabhadra rivers are identified as the major sacred rivers where the Arthi will be offered annually. In 2012 more than 15 locations were identified to do Nadula Arthi. More than ten lakh Hindu devotees attended the Karthik Purnima festival, took dip in the sacred rivers and offered Karthik Deepam. Almost all the TV channels and many newspapers had covered the Nadula Arthi festival. Some devotees traveled hundreds of kilometers to attend this unique festival.                Later the then Endowment Minister  Sri P. Manikyala Rao in 2016 expanded the event to Daily Arthi to Godavari and Krishna Rivers. It is done similar to the Arthi in Ganga River in Kashi. Festivals play a vital role in the lives of Hindus who make plans for days to conduct the festivals with faith, gusto, and commitment in order to maintain and practice their rich cultural tradition. In India, each festival has a special significance, and it is also associated with many stories. Puranas, Itihasasa and other scriptures describe the astrological location of the cosmos, it’s effect on the human beings, and the benefits one would accrue by conducting certain worship services. The stories associated with these festivals have spiritual significance. In fact, these festivals invigorate the inner meaning of life and elevate the divine element in each human being. Participation in these festivals reinforces the presence of God in one’s own life and ignites the awareness of the interconnectedness of the Panchabhutas that includes every known element in the universe. Why offer Arthi to Sacred Rivers on Karthik Purnima. For Hindus, lighting Deepam, worshipping rivers, and Karthik Purnima have special meaning and significance. Hindu scriptures are replete with the information on all these rituals. India is rich with customs and traditions. Everything is connected, ever thing has meaning, everything has relevance, everything is divine, and everything has importance. Skanda Purana and Padma Purana have glorified the month of Karthik Masa: Skanda Purana states: Karthik khaluvaimasamsarva, masesucauttamam punyanam paramam punyam, pavananamca pavanam The month of Karthik is the topmost of all other months. It is the most meritorious and purified of all other pure months. Padma Purana also talks about the importance of Karthik Masa: Dvadasu apimase su kartikah Krsna valabhah tasmin sampujito visnur alpakair apy upayanaih dadati vaisnavam lokam iti, evam niscitam maya Among all twelve months, the month of Karthik is dear to Lord Krishna. If somebody performs a little worship of Lord Sri Hari in this month, that devotee is offered His own abode. Significance of Kartika Masa and Rudrabhishekam Out of all the months in Dakshinayana, Karthika Masa is best suited for Sadhana. Any austerity, be it a pooja, charity, penance etc. performed during the Karthika Masam is more meritorious than one performed on ordinary days. Any austerity performed during the month of Karthika would help the sadhakas to free themselves from all sins and leads them towards moksha. This year (2020) November 29th happens to be Kartika Pournami day. Kartika Pournami tithi is very auspicious;  worshipping Lord Shiva leads to Moksha. Puranas state that on Karthika pournami Lord Shiva kílled Tripurasuras and protected the world. Devotees of Lord Shiva perform the Rudrabhishekam for the whole month of Karthika Masam to please Lord Shiva. Performing Rudrabhishekam bestows one with health, wealth and happiness and offers protection against enemies, negativity, and evil. Significance of Karthik Deepam Deepam is light. It is lit every day in many houses in the morning and evening. Symbolically, light evokes Chaitanya (consciousness). It is considered the source of knowledge, remover of darkness, eradicator of ignorance, and germinator of higher ideals. Whenever the knowledge is awakened, the negative Vasanas are slowly eliminated while new seeds (Vasanas) are sown for this and next life. Also, the light always burns upwards implying that one should grow upward better living. Hindus also light the lamp before starting any auspicious event. In fact, Hindus call it Divya Deepam – Divine Lamp. Sri Paramacharya of Kanchi Peetham aptly documented the significance of offering earthen lamps to the sacred river in Karthik Masa. The sloka given in the shastraas is as follows: keedaa: patangaa: masagaascha vrukchaa: jale stale ye nivasanti jeevaa: I drushtvaa pradeepam na cha janma baajaa bavanti nityam svabasaa hi vipraa: II This means, “We pray that, whosoever sees this lamp that we are lighting, they be worms, birds or mosquitoes or trees and such plants; all life forms which live in water or on earth; or may be human beings of whatever caste or creed; seeing this light may have the effect on them that all their sins are washed away and they may transcend the cycle of life and death and reach everlasting happiness”! It is customary to start our daily prayers as well as any major functions by lighting an Oil lamp by chanting this sloka: Subham Karoti Kalyanam, Arogyam Dhana Sampadah, Shatru Buddhi Vinashaya Deepa Jyotir Namostute. “I salute the One who lights the lamp that brings auspiciousness; prosperity, good health, abundance of wealth, and the destruction of the intellect’s enemy (These 6 enemies are Kama, krodha, lobha, moha, mada and matsarya)’. After lighting the lamp, we also chant the following sloka or prayer: Deepajyothi Parabrahma, Deepajyothi Janardhana, Deepo me haratupaapam, Deepa Jyothir Namostute “I salute the Brahman, the sustainer of the creation, in the form of this light. I salute the Lord, may He destroy afflictions resulting from my omissions and commissions.” People who Lights up a Deepam in Karthika Masam will receive the blessings of Pitrudevatulu (our ancestors) and also the blessings of SIVA and VISHNU. It is recommended that the Deepam be lighted up only in Mud Plates (Matti Pramidas). The wick represents body; the ghee represents purity and clarity. When the wick is lit, it stands for illumination. Similarly, an individual should serve as wick to illuminate others and should not be selfish. Just the way light removes darkness, individual efforts should be directed to get rid of ignorance and exuberate knowledge. To celebrate the killing of Tripurasura, images of Lord Shiva are carried in procession. Temple complexes in Southern India are lit up throughout the night. People offer Deepam consisting of 360 wicks in the Temples to secure escape from reaching hell after death. Some people offer 720 wicks to symbolize 360 days and nights. In Varanasi, the Ghats come alive with thousands of diyas (brightly lit earthen lamps. The Deepas (lamps) are kept throughout the night in houses and Temples, especially Shiva temples. This day is also known as "Karthik Diparatna" - the jewel of lamps in Karthik. On this day Deepas are offered to the sacred rivers. It is sight to see so many Deepas floated in the rivers. Sacred Rivers A ritual bath at a Tirtha (a sacred water body like a lake or river) at a pilgrimage center is prescribed on Karthik Purnima. This holy bath is known as "Karthik snana". A holy bath at Pushkara or in the Ganges River, especially at Varanasi is deemed as most auspicious. Karthik Purnima is the most popular day for bathing in the Ganges at Varanasi. In Karthi Masa (month) Ganga Mata (Goddess Ganga) enters into all the rivers, canals, ponds and wells and makes them as sacred as Ganga. Hence taking bath in any rivers on this day is as good as taking bath in Ganges. According to some scientific reports, water will acquire more magnetic power from Earth and will be stored in water before the Sunrise in Karthik Masa. Anybody, who takes bath in flowing water, is relieved of stomach problems, liver disorder, and other health related problems. Also, in this month, Lord Vishnu, who goes to sleep on Ashadha Suddha Ekadashi, wakes-up on Karthik suddha ekadashi. Ayyappa Deeksha is also taken in Karthik Masam. Importance of Karthik Purnima Na kaarthika samo masa Na Deva Kesavaatparam Nacha Vedasamam Shaastram Na Teerdham Gangayaasamam "There is no month that is equal to Karthik Masa, there is no god equivalent to Lord Kesava (Sri Hari), there is no scripture equal to Vedas, and there is no Teerdha equal to Holy Ganges." According to Padma Purana, anyone, who performance pujas in the Karthik Masa, will amass more merit than conducting them at other months. These merits are more powerful than even the study of Vedas and performance of japa, charity, and austerity. Karthik Purnima is also called Tripuri Purnima. In some legends Tripurasura, a demon king, had conquered the whole world, defeated the Gods, and created three Puras (cities), also called "Tripura". The killing of the demon(s) and destruction of his/their cities with a single arrow by Shiva overjoyed the gods and they pronounced the day as a festival of illuminations. Since Lord Shiva killed three sons of Tripurasura on Karthik Purnima day, it is called Deva Diwali – the Diwali of Gods. Karthik Purnima is also the birthday of Lord Vishnu in Matsya Avatara -Vishnu's fish-incarnation. It is also the birthday of Vrinda, the personification of the Tulsi plant and of Karthikeya, the god of war and son of Shiva. This day also is considered dear to Radha, the lover of Krishna - Vishnu's incarnation. It is believed that Krishna and Radha danced rasa and Krishna worshipped Radha on this day. Tulasi Worship Padma Purana elaborately describes the importance and glorious attributes of Tulasi plant in thirty chapters. Tulasi is very special for the followers of Vaishnava tradition. "Just by looking at Tulasi, all of one's sins are removed. Just by touching Her, one's body becomes purified. All diseases are removed by praying to Her. Watering Her destroys fear of death. Just by planting or transplanting Her, one achieves realization of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. If someone offers Her leaves at the lotus feet of Sri Krsna, Tulasi will award liberation and devotion to Lord Sri Krsna." Encourage your friends and relatives GHHF strongly recommends our readers to encourage all their friends and relatives, who live in and around these cities, to participate in Arthi to Sacred Rivers initiative. Hindu society will be enriched spiritually and religiously by their full participation in this Arthi. Hindus can make their religion more vibrant, dynamic, colorful, energetic, lively and active by participating in their festivals.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi is organized in two villages in Nagiri Mandalam near Tirupati.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi started in three Villages in Bandar Mandal near Machilipatnam

If the Christian dogmas of a revengeful God, universal sinfulness, election by divine grace and the danger of eternal damnation were true, it would be a sign of weak-mindedness and lack of character not to become a priest, apostle or hermit and, in fear and trembling, to work solely on one's own salvation; it would be senseless to lose sight of one’s eternal advantage for the sake of temporal comfort. Nietzsche's Human, all too Human Global Hindu Heritage Foundation started Ghar Waapasi program in Bandar Mandalam around Machilipatnam actively going to different to meet the Christians who have taken the wrong path due to different reasons. Mr. Nagaraj visited three villages – Nageswara Puram, Tavasipudi and Amadalapalli – in Bandar Mandalam with the help of many volunteers in the villages. They plan ahead as to which village or area they need to go to and assemble the people to talk about the differences between Hinduism and Christianity. Many of the Hindus who changed to Christianity feel that they do not belong there. But the Pastors keep demanding their loyalty and create fear by saying that they would burn in hell forever. They are encouraged by the response of these Christians who missed the way and who have been waiting to be approached so that their fears are allayed. 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 7 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.

[GHHF] TTD Should Initiate Ghar Waapasi and stop Conversions to Christianity

In order to protect and promote Hindu Dharma, TTD must initiate GHAR WAAPASI – welcoming back to Hindu Dharma those who converted to Christianity for various dubious and questionable reasons. As per the guidelines of Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad, the arm of TTD is “to preserve, propagate and promote Hindu Dharma as the official dharmic face of TTD by organizing different devotional programs and HDPP conducted various religious programs to bring the Lord closer to his devotees and also to enhance and enrich the spiritual and devotional quotient in TTD activities.” Initiation of Ghar Waapasi is consistent with the agenda of HDPP. https://youtu.be/W7vMfehUCD8   It is time for TTD to look at what is happening in the State and India. Rampant Christian conversions snatching away our Hindu population from practicing Hindu dharma. It is time to take stern measures to propagate our faith and expose the true atrocious, bloody, absurd, obscene, tyrannical, murderous, and deceptive nature of Christianity. Why Should TTD initiate Ghar Waapasi? 1. Dwindling Hindu Population: As per the 2011 Census, Christians constituted only 1.4 percent in Andhra Pradesh. Relentless conversion efforts over the last 8 years have yielded a bumper crop. On May 20, 2020, the AP government recognized the Christian population at 18 percent. But the actual percentage of Christians is likely to be around 30 %. Why such discrepancy? With Muslim Population at 10%, there are only about 60% Hindus in Andhra Pradesh. 2. Why Christian Population is not reported accurately? Christian Populations is purposefully under-reported and suppressed. Pastors instruct their converts not to reveal their faith to reap the benefits of being Dalits. Also, to make Hindus believe that their numbers are not a threat to their Faith. They are like termites working underground to collapse the Hindu edifice. 3. Churches are being built with no permits. Illegal construction of Churches all across Andhra Pradesh is happening over the years. We all know how many churches are built with no morals, no scruples, all across Andhra Pradesh and India without even permission from the authorities. Even in Tirupati, they built more than 50 churches without permission either from the Collector’s office or other authorities. TTD should request the District Collectors to demolish those churches that are built without permission. In fact, TTD should make every effort to ensure the sanctity of Tirupati by declaring 50 Kilometer radius is Punya Kshetra where no other religion would be allowed to practice similar to Mecca and the Vatican. If you cannot build a Hindu Temple in Mecca and Vatican, why would you allow the Mosques and Churches built in Tirupati? 4. For Christian Pastors, it is a business. More Hindus they convert, the more money they get from foreign countries and from converted Hindus who are required to pay 10% of their income. They find people who are experiencing financial problems, health problems, admission to educational institutions, and lack of education. They exploit them to the fullest. How can an illiterate person change his religion overnight unless he is lured with incentives or by force? 5. AS per the injunctions of Christianity, Hindu Temples can be attacked. After the new government, Christians have emboldened their conversion spree. Consequently, Hindu Deities are defaced and broken. Hindu Gods are maligned and insulted. Bible clearly asks the Christians that they “must burn up the images of their gods; burn their idols in the fire; destroy all their carved images and cast idols, and demolish all their high places; You must not bow down to their gods … instead, you are to demolish them and smash their sacred stones to pieces. The Christian missionaries are a threat to the very existence of Hinduism. They say Christianity is the only true religion, Jesus is the only savior, and non-Christians are condemned to eternal hell. Hindu Gods may be broken or smashed since they are an abomination to Jesus. Even Hindu altars may be cut down. For them, Lord Venkateswara is a mere stone and a Saitan to be broken. But Hindus believe Him to be the most sacred, powerful, wish-fulfilling Deity. 6. Hindu are Sinners, so are TTD Trust Board members. As per Christianity, TTD Board members and all Hindus are sinners and burn eternally in hellfire because you have not accepted Jesus. Is this what you accept for yourself and the rest of the Hindus? As a Hindu, do you permit the Christians to call you a sinner to be burned eternally? 7. Christians are creating divisions, strife, friction, disharmony, and raucous not only in their own families but in the society at large. Jesus said that “Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but divisions.” (Luke 12:51). It is by creating conflicts in the families, they are converting one by one. Ghar Waapasi: To counter this rampant Christian conversion of Hindus, Ghar Waapasi is the only answer. TTD should employ Ghar Waapasi Pracharaks, train them to be acquainted with the richness, grandeur, and treasures in Sanatana Dharma and its uniqueness, its nonviolence, its tolerance, and accommodative nature. We should also train them to know about the bloody, bold, brutal, ruthless nature of the Bible and how it is different from the Bhagavad Gita. Ghar Waapasi Pracharaks should be appointed all across the State to do two things: 1) Stop the conversion and make Hindus aware of these vultures who are waiting to snatch away from our Faith. 2) To bring back those Hindus who got converted through deception, fear, and allurement. They were directed to the wrong path. It is our responsibility to show the right path to return to their original home. TTD should take Measures to counter the Christian Threat to Hindu Dharma: TTD Board members should not turn their blind eye to the havoc being created by the Christians. Through Ghar Waapasi, TTD should actively engage in bringing the ex-Hindus back to Hinduism as a part of Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad agenda. Prachara means promotion, betterment, and advancement. TTD Board members cannot shut their eyes, plug their ears, and tie their tongues when a large scale conversion of Hindus is happening at a rapid pace. TTD cannot be an island and remain a silent spectator thinking that nothing is happening around us. What is happening around is as important as what is happening inside TTD Now is the time for TTD to start Ghar Waapasi to stop the unethical conversion of Hindus and bring back those who converted to Christianity through deception and allurement.

[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}}
