[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras - 42 students from 5 villages went on a Pilgrimage to Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu

“India has come to preserve spiritual traditions which many ancient cultures and countries have lost. Today Hinduism represents not only India but the ancient wisdom of humanity. In Hinduism, many ancient countries can still rediscover their religious past, their old gods, and their old spiritual traditions.” Ram Swarup (1920-1998), Indian writer and scholar

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras - 42 students from 5 villages went on a Pilgrimage to Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu

“India has come to preserve spiritual traditions which many ancient cultures and countries have lost. Today Hinduism represents not only India but the ancient wisdom of humanity. In Hinduism, many ancient countries can still rediscover their religious past, their old gods, and their old spiritual traditions.” Ram Swarup (1920-1998), Indian writer and scholar Pilgrimages to Hindu Temples and sacred rivers are considered sacred to remove the bad karmas, eliminate negative thinking, reduce the pressure of life,  and minimize the effects of paapa (sinful) karmas. Visiting these special sacred places accrues to good karma. As a householder has to go through several responsibilities and is always under pressure.                Similarly, the pilgrimage would help the students to reduce their stress, learn about the history of the Temple sites, the importance of accumulating good karma, establish closeness with their peers, and enhance their knowledge about the history of the pilgrimage sites. It is the means by which the pilgrims get connected to the divine.                Sri Sridhar Mutrasanallur who lives in Bangalore is responsible for initiating and coordinating our efforts in Chennai. He closely monitors our two programs – Ghar Waapasi and Bala Samskar Kendras. GHHF is grateful for his passion and dedication to protecting and preserving our Sanatana Dharma. Forty-two (42) students from Chengalpattu district of TN had a fun summer trip to the nearby Shore temple at Mahabalipuram on May 22, 2022. They were accompanied by 6 teachers/adults who took care of them and made sure they had full fun while remaining safe during the entire trip. One of the teachers is Smt. Jayalakshmi ji who is the GHHF head in Chengalpattu district and was instrumental in pulling together this trip. Students were super thrilled about the entire trip and had been eagerly awaiting it for several weeks. Mahabalipuram is a distance of about 26km from the students’ villages and so a minibus was arranged for the trip. The trip started at 10:15 am in the morning after the children had finished their breakfast. All the children were given full safety instructions to follow during the trip before the trip started. As soon as the bus was on its way, children were singing and dancing to full volume on the bus. By around 11:15 am bus reached its destination. Given the historical importance of the place, an ASI-certified guide was hired to help explain the 1200-year-old history of the place. The guide first gave them a brief history of who built the place – the Pallavas, who first came looking for a trade to India from Sri Lanka. Mahabalipuram, is a town on a strip of land between the Bay of Bengal and the Great Salt Lake, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It’s known for its temples and monuments built by the Pallava dynasty in the 7th and 8th centuries. The seafront Shore Temple comprises 3 ornate granite shrines.

[GHHF] Returned to USA; most gratifying to witness amazing work at Ground level; will resume regular postings.

I just returned from Bharat to Dallas. It took 54 hours to reach with missing flights, cancelled flights, changing flights and internet problems. Five weeks of hectic programs  visiting a number of places, and meeting great personalities. Attended Ghar Waapasi programs, spoke at Several Bala Samskar Kendras, heard emotional parents talk about their children learning our culture and traditions, listened to the experiences of students attending Sunday Schools, attended several Meet and Greet programs,  met several Bala Samskar teachers, listened to the efforts of Ghar Waapasi Pracharaks, visited adoption center, and witnessed Grama Devata temle we helped renovate.  Also met the Honorable Karnataka Chief Minister Sri Basavaraj  Bommai and talked about activities. We all have to think globally about the future of Hinduism. Children are our future. Future of humanity depends on Hindu ideals. Devoid of these Hindu values will only witness violence, disaster and destruction. Let us pray for brighter future for humanity. Embracement of Hindu Dharma is the only inevitable guarantee. Any thing less is likely to prolong our agony. I apologise for irregular postings of our activities.  Constant moving from one place to another, attending two-three programs on a daily basis, and internet problems caused these irregular postings.  I am back and we will resume sharing the progress at the ground level. Thank you all for your encouragement snd support to GHHF activities over the years.  Dhanyavad. {{album_568}}

[GHHF] Finally Vakula Mata Temple in Peruru will be consecrated.

Once I return to USA in about three days I will send the role of GHHF in advocating the construction of Vakula Mata Temple. Legal battles started in March 2012 as illegal quarrying was being carried out. How High Court directed TTD to start the construction of the Temples. Swami Paripoornananda and Ghazal Srinivas efforts to highlight the issue and more will be discussed.   GHHF is very happy to see that the mother of Balaji will have a place to stay.       {{album_567}}

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Amazing display of talents and Knowledge demonstrated in West Godavari District on June 14th.

Sir John Woodroffe (1865-1936) “Hinduism may not be called a religion in the sense other religions are known. It is much more than a religion; it is a total way of life. Hinduism has no founder. Its authority is Eternal Truth. The cumulative record of metaphysical experimentation. Behind the lush tangle of religious imagery, is a clear structure of thought. Hindus have always been metaphysicians at heart. It is the underlying ideas, and not the images which count. The forms are many, the reality is one.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to announce that we organized a meeting with Bala Samskar Kendra students and teachers from West Godavari District on June 14th in Martela Village. More than hundred students and 12 teachers attended the meeting to show case the talents of the students. GHHF started the Bala Samskar Kendras about six months ago. They have chanted many Slokas such as Guru Mantras, Ganapathy Sloka, Saraswathi Sloka, Brahma Murari song, Desa bhakti Geetas, demonstrated Surya Namaskar positions and many more. Very impressive display of talents. It was very satisfying to see our children learn about the richness of Sanatana Dharma. WE feel that the sowed of pride is being inculcated in their minds at an early age and believe that they will be our future protector of Bharath. Once we teach the values, morals, ethics and compassion, they will be symbolize the rich heritage. I spoke about the importance of Hindu values, talked about the importance of instilling pride and imparting the richness of Hinduism. Our society has failed to teach the grandeur of Hindu ethos. We talked about the scientific and spiritual knowledge embedded in our scriptures. As Mark Twain said that there is nothing under the sun that our ancient Rishis have not addressed. We requested the teachers to make sure that they teach the proper values and create pride in our heritage. The future of the students rests in the hands of teachers. Hence that should conduct the classes for the sake of Bharath.                 To appreciate our faith and its richness in literature and culture, we need to understand the true nature of Christianity and Islam. Unfortunately, we are still ill-equipped with the true nature of other religions. Violence, terror, killings, rapes, and destruction are advocated by Christianity and Islam. Hindus are the only ones who say that all religions are the same while the other two Abrahamic religions abhor Hinduism and do not have any respect. Both these religions have committed to wiping out Hinduism from the planet. It is time to realize the potential danger to Hinduism and start getting reacquainted with the richness of our heritage and understand why ahimsa, tolerance, inclusiveness, respect for others, and truth can save humanity from extinction.                 Srinivas Pinnamaneni talked to Teachers separately about molding the children's personalities. He said the future of our country depends on our children. It is the responsibility of the teachers to protect Dharma by molding the children and instill pride. They also need to show the difference between Bhagavad Gita and Christianity and Islam. The future of Bharat is in their hands. If they are successful in imparting the Hindu ethos, Bharath will be saved from Abrahamic religions intolerance and terror. Bala Samskar Kendras in FIVE States On June 6, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is exceptionally happy to inform you that Bala Samskar Kendras (Sunday Schools) were conducted in about 151 Villages/localities in five States: Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka.

[GHHF] Islam is incompatible with Hinduism and Democracy; Hindu Holocaust is in sight; Wake up Hindus to prevent your Demise.

Tarek Fatah rightly observed when he visited India, “As a Muslim, I found it fascinating that this is the only place in the world where Muslims exert influence without fear. Muslims are better equipped in India than in Pakistan and Bangladesh.” Nupur Sharma, BJP Spokesperson was threatened with rape, beheading, and killing family members for her alleged insult of Mohammad. The whole Muslim world is up in arms. They are protesting across the globe to show their muscle and remind us that they are going to make India an Islamic Country.  Last week, the Al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) had issued a letter warning of suicide bombings in Indian cities to avenge the insult to Prophet Mohammad. In the threat letter dated June 6, the AQIS said it will launch suicide attacks in Delhi, Mumbai, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat to “fight the honour of the Prophet”. All the states have been informed by the intelligence agencies about the threat and they have been asked to be on high alert. The controversial statement made by Nupur Sharma has set off an international furore. Several Muslim nations, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Indonesia, and Iran, as well as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, have officially protested and demanded an apology.                Are the Arab countries dictating our domestic policies? How long the Indian government will allow these Muslims to rampage Bharath? Islam is incompatible with Hinduism, Democracy and Humanity; India has a Choice to make before Hindu Holocaust. It is time to act – arrest all the protesters who threatened the lives of people, burn the property, and damage the property. If the Indian government cannot act decisively, Hindu Holocaust will begin sooner than you think.                {NOTE: This is the part of the article I had written in 2016}.       "Islamic rule in India as a "colonial experiment" was "extremely violent", and "the Muslims could not rule the country except by systematic terror. Cruelty was the norm - burnings, summary executions, crucifixions or impalements, inventive tortures. Hindu temples were destroyed to make way for mosques. On occasion there were forced conversions. If ever there were an uprising, it was instantly and savagely repressed: houses were burned, the countryside was laid waste, men were slaughtered and women were taken as slaves." (Fernand Braudel:  A History of Civilization) Hindus believe in and practice polytheism, worship of variety of Gods and Goddesses. Islam embraces monotheism that believes in only one God, that is Allah.  Polytheism is inherently pluralistic, humanistic, tolerant, accommodative, peaceful and equalitarian. In contract, monotheism is innately intolerant, violent, exclusive, dictatorial and non-accommodative. From the inception of Islam, its main mission is ridding of polytheism from the Arab world. This monotheistic arrogance spread the hatred across the globe. Neither philosophically nor scientifically, are there compelling arguments in favor of monotheism, as opposed to polytheism. Indeed, as David Hume showed, there is nothing inherently absurd in polytheism. And as to the Koranic hint at the argument from design, Hume showed that all hypotheses regarding the origins of the universe were equally absurd. David Hume argued that unlike monotheism, polytheism is pluralistic in nature, unbound by doctrine, and therefore far more tolerant than monotheism, which tends to force people to believe in one faith." He believes that polytheism is more conducive to maintaining peace and virtue in society. Its tolerance of diversity ideas and practices is readily accessible to chosen gods, encourages "activity, spirit, courage, magnanimity, love of liberty, and all the virtues which aggrandize a people." David Hume has argued that monotheism is less pluralistic and thus less tolerant than polytheism because the former stipulates that people pigeonhole their beliefs into one. In the same vein, Auguste Comte argues, "Monotheism is irreconcilable with the existence in our nature of the instincts of benevolence" because it compels followers to devote themselves to a single Creator. Monotheism is not only inherently intolerant but it promotes violence and terror.  We know from the Koran itself the hatred preached at all kinds of beliefs labeled "idolatry" or "polytheism." Dictionary of Islam acknowledges that Muslim writers are "unanimous in asserting that no religious toleration was extended to the idolaters of Arabia in the time of the Prophet. The only choice given them was death or the reception of Islam." Implicit in all kinds of monotheism is the dogmatic certainty that it alone has access to the true God, it alone has access to truth. Everyone else is not only woefully misguided but doomed to perdition and everlasting hellfire. Arthur Schopenhauer asks us to reflect on the "cruelties to which religions, especially the Christian and Mohammedan, have given rise" and "the misery they have brought on the world." Also think of “the bloody and terrible conquests of the Mohammedans in three continents.... In particular, let us not forget India ... where first Mohammedans and then Christians furiously and most cruelly attacked the followers of mankind's sacred and original faith. The ever-deplorable, wanton, and ruthless destruction and disfigurement of ancient temples and images reveal to us even to this day traces of the monotheistic fury [my emphasis] of the Mohammedans which was pursued from Mahmud of Ghazni of accursed memory down to Aurangzeb the fratricide.” Arthur Schopenhauer contrasts the peaceful historical record of the Hindus and the Buddhists with the wickedness and cruelty of the monotheists, and then concludes: “Indeed, intolerance is essential only to monotheism; an only God is by nature a jealous God who will not allow another to live. On the other hand, polytheistic gods are naturally tolerant; they live and let live. In the first place, they gladly tolerate their colleagues, the gods of the same religion, and this tolerance is afterwards extended even to foreign gods who are accordingly, hospitably received and later admitted, in some cases, even to an equality of rights... Thus it is only the monotheistic religions that furnish us with the spectacle of religious wars, religious persecutions, courts for trying heretics, and also with that of iconoclasm, the destruction of the images of foreign gods, the demolition of Indian temples and Egyptian colossi that had looked at the sun for three thousand years;all this because their jealous God had said: "Thou shalt make no graven image" and so on.” W A Palgrave vividly described the Koranic God as thus:“He is ever more prone to punish than to reward, to inflict pain than to bestow pleasure, to ruin than to build. It is His singular satisfaction to let created beings continually feel that they are nothing else than His slaves, His tools—and contemptible tools too—that they may thus the better acknowledge His superiority, and know His power to be above their power, His cunning above their cunning, His will above their will, His pride above their pride; or rather, that there is no power, cunning, will, or pride, save His own.” In the ancient times, monotheism is blamed as the instigator of violence in its early days as it inspired the Israelites to wage war upon the Canaanites who believed in multiple gods. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, former President of India, regarded monotheism to be one reason of violence, said: “The intolerance of narrow monotheism is written in letters of blood across the history of man from the time when first the tribes of Israel burst into the land of Canaan. The worshippers of the one jealous God are egged on to aggressive wars against people of alien cults. They invoke divine sanction for the cruelties inflicted on the conquered. The spirit of old Israel is inherited by Christianity and Islam, and it might not be unreasonable to suggest that it would have been better for Western civilization if Greece had molded it on this question rather than Palestine.” As compared to Abrahamic religions, religions of the east (Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism,) have always believed in 'Sarva Dharma Samabhava' meaning literally that all Dharmas are equal to or harmonious with each other. Muslim theologians are unanimous in declaring that no religious toleration was extended to the idolaters in the past and will not be in the future. The only choice given to them was death or the acceptance of Islam. Osama Bin Laden said that “what is false is false -- even if a billion individuals agree to it; and truth is truth -- even if only one who has submitted [a Muslim] holds on to it,” and also said that “Battle, animosity, and hatred -- directed from the Muslim to the infidel -- is the foundation of our religion. And we consider this a justice and kindness to them” (The Al Qaeda Reader, pgs. 42-43). It is time to discuss, debate and dialogue the consequences of appeasement policies toward Muslims, not adopting family planning, failure to stop the Bangladesh infiltration, not implementing the uniform civil code, inability to stop the relentless terror, ever increasing rampage of the Hindu villages, never ending insulting of Hindus, and determination to convert India into a Muslim Country.  Hindus being silent, indifferent, tend to postpone the discussion and they are unable to publicly name the Muslims as the enemies of democracy, as terrorists, and as the traitors of India. After visiting India Tarek Fatah rightly observed, “As a Muslim, I found it fascinating that this is the only place in the world where Muslims exert influence without fear. Muslims are better equipped in India than in Pakistan and Bangladesh.” By avoiding an open discussion about the impending take-over of India by Muslims in less than a decade, Hindu politicians, Hindu organizations and the government are going to fulfill the long cherished dreams of Muslims to convert Hindu country into an Islamic State. It would not be too long to see the carnage of Hindus since they have no place to go. They will be shackled, cornered, tortured and killed. The only option left for Hindus would be convert to Islam to save their lives. If we don’t act and take necessary steps to curtail the inflow of Bangladeshi Muslims into India, control the intentional breeding of the Muslims to outnumber the locals, and root out terrorist cells and their atrocities, Hindu lives will be in perennial danger. If Hindus fail to scrap all the appeasement policies toward Muslims, if they continue to ignore the statements of annihilating Hindus, if they do not take appropriate action against the Muslim leaders who openly pronounce the hateful speeches calling Hindus as weaklings, dummies, boneless, gutless, spineless, etc.; and if the government and Hindus abrogate their responsibility to protect the Hindus from being bullied, bruised, humiliated, raped, tortured, maimed, and killed, Hindu genocide is around the corner. There would not be any place for Hindus either to hide or run from the ruthless Islamic sword. We Hindus must recognize that Islam and Hinduism are incompatible in their ideologies, values, practices, human rights, inclusiveness, women’s rights, tolerance toward each other, marriage customs, and democratic principles.   Hindus must realize the gravity of the precarious situation the majority Hindus are facing in the hands of Muslim minorities who are using every means to create fear among Hindus and drive them from their villages. It should be pointed out that the in the very near future that the Hindus are going to be corned and another carnage of Hindus similar to the carnage during the Independence time, of not too far in the sight. It is a matter of years not decades. Muslims stayed back only to recapture India through violent means. Their loyalty is not to India but for global dominance and supremacy over all religions. They are in India not to integrate, not to accommodate, not to adjust and not to assimilate in the main stream of India but to dominate, subjugate, subdue, control and suppress Hindus through Islamic Justice which allows them to dispose of all Hindus at their will, reminiscent of Islamic brutal, barbaric and ruthless dominance of Hindu India for eight centuries. Islamization using the Sharia law is already taking place that undermines the human dignity and denies the human rights for non-Muslims. Let us remember the resolution passed by the Council of the All-India Muslim League on June 6, 1946 to protect the lives of Muslims by breaking up India to create Pakistan. It says, “…the attainment of the goal of complete sovereign Pakistan still remains an unalterable objective of the Musalmans in India, for the achievement of which they would, if necessary, employ every means in their power and consider no sacrifice or suffering too great.” Similarly, Jinnah insisted that the Muslims of India are a nation with a “distinctive culture and civilization, language and literature, art and architecture, law and moral codes, customs and calendar, history and traditions.” Ambedkar foresaw a bleak and brutal future for India as long as Muslims remain in India. He unequivocally advocated the population exchange in case of partition. He wanted Hindus and Sikhs from Pakistan to come to India and all the Muslims from India to go to Pakistan.  “That the transfer of minorities is the only lasting remedy for communal peace is beyond doubt...there is no reason to suppose that what they did cannot be accomplished by Indians. After all, the population involved is inconsiderable and because some obstacles require to be removed, it would be the height of folly to give up so sure a way to communal peace... The only way to make Hindustan homogeneous is to arrange for exchange of population. Until that is done, it must be admitted that even with the creation of Pakistan, the problem of majority vs. minority will remain in Hindustan as before and will continue to produce disharmony in the body politic of Hindustan.” “The brotherhood of Islam is not the universal brotherhood of man. It is brotherhood of Muslims for Muslims only. There is a fraternity but its benefit is confined to those within that corporation. For those who are outside the corporation, there is nothing but contempt and enmity. ... In other words, Islam can never allow a true Muslim to adopt India as his motherland and regard a Hindu as his kith and kin,” said Ambedkar. Rabindranath Tagore said that Muslims and Hindus can coexist as long as they accept the principle of ahimsa and the ideology of live and let live. Knowing the irreconcilable differences between these two religions, and the Muslims’ intention to dominate the world though the sword, he predicted in 1911, “The world-wide problem today is not how to unite by wiping out all differences, but how to unite with all the differences intact; a difficult task, for it permits of no trickery and calls for mutual give-and-take… The Muslims in our country are striving for advancement as a separate community. However disagreeable and disadvantage that may be for us for the time being, it is only right way to achieve genuine unity some day in the future.” Annie Besant says, “The world has gone beyond such so-called theocracies, in which God’s commands are given through a man. The claim now put forward by Musalman leaders that they must obey the laws of their particular prophet above the laws of the State in which they live, is subversive of civic order and the stability of the State … Malabar has taught us what Islamic rule still means, and we do not want to see another specimen of the ‘Khilafat 5 Raj’ in India … there is no place in a civilized land for people who believe that their religion teaches them to murder, rob, rape, burn, or drive away out of the country those who refuse to apostatize from their ancestral faiths … Such ‘Laws of God’ cannot be allowed to override the laws of a civilized country … In fact, Muslim sects are not safe in a country ruled by orthodox Muslims.” Hindus should wake up to the fact their lives are in grave danger. Muslims have been committing countless atrocities across the countries and waging war on Hindu infidels in India.  Hindu leaders, politicians, liberals, intellectuals and media are not even recognizing the gravity of the potential threat to the country although the terrorist organizations and many Muslim leaders openly advocating the hostile takeover of India by Muslims. They have been openly declaring to make India a Muslim country. They are not hiding their intentions. Hindus are totally failing in their responsibility to recognize the potential holocaust and denying the most obvious threat for their survival. ISIS has already moved to India, flexes its forces by recruiting young men and also bringing terrorists from Pakistan to create panic by blowing up few buildings and killing several people on the way to establish Caliphate. Longer the Hindus wait, more agony they have to endure. India must be made Hindustan as was planned during the Independence and as was envisioned by Jinnah who said, “Hindu and Muslim cultures constitute two distinct, and frequently antagonistic, ways of life, and that therefore they cannot coexist in one nation.” Let very body remember what was discussed at the time of Independence and implement, although it is late by 68 years. “At the time of partition some of the two-nation theory protagonists proposed that the entire Hindu population should migrate to India and all Muslims should move over to Pakistan, leaving no Hindus in Pakistan and no Muslims in India ..."(S. Harmon). There is no question that Muslims want India to be converted into Islamic Country. It is their "unfinished business." Indian Muslims are dreaming and planning break up India into three Islamic countries - Mughalistan, Dravidistan and Dalitisthan. Asaduddin Owasi has publicly announced that he would not call India as Bharat Mata. He said he would wipe out all Hindus in fifteen minutes if police force is withdrawn. Gulab Nabi Azad equated ISIS with RSS. He refused to apologize for saying. ISIS has already announced that it will take over India and make it an Islamic Country. The writing is on the wall. Hindus have not read the writings on the wall, have not recognized the threat, have not challenged the Muslims for their anti-Hindu statements and are refusing the acknowledge the potential threat. Hindu holocaust is around the corner. Hindus must face it otherwise they will be finished. Hindus have experienced the Islamic atrocities for nearly ten centuries. If they have not learned from the history of Islamic invasions, and brutality inflicted on our forefathers, we are likely to experience the same fate as our ancestors. It is the dharma of every Hindu to preserve and protect the Hindu lives for the sake of our future generations, for the sake of the freedom we have been enjoying, and for the sake of humanity. Let us not allow this freedom slip away from our fingers. All across the globe, scholars and philosophers have been writing about the barbarism, bloodthirstiness, savagery, and viciousness of Islam. As far back as 1921, Andre Servier elaborated the nature of Islam: “Islam was not a torch, as has been claimed, but an extinguisher. Conceived in a barbarous brain for the use of a barbarous people, it was—and it remains—incapable of adapting itself to civilization. Wherever it has dominated, it has broken the impulse towards progress and checked the evolution of society.” (P; 153) Sri Aurobindo predicated way back in 1909 that, “Every action for instance which may be objectionable to a number of Mahomedans is now liable to be forbidden because it is likely to lead to a breach of the peace, and one is dimly beginning to' wonder whether the day may not come when worship in Hindu temples may be forbidden on that valid ground.” Indeed, Sri Aurobindo predictive statement need to be heeded as soon as possible. Many Hindu Temples across India are not allowed to do worship services, sing bhajans, chant mantras, ring bells, install pendals, and endure the loud speakers announcing the greatness of Allah. Let us remember the words of Anne Besant and allow them to inspire every Hindu to champion the cause of Hindutva.  “After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophic, and none so spiritual as the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. The more you know it, the more you will love it; the more you try to understand it, the more deeply you will value it … Make no mistake; without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil into which India’s roots are struck, and torn of that she will inevitably wither, as a tree torn out from its place... And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism, who shall save it? If India’s own children do not cling to her faith, who shall guard it? India alone can save India, and India and Hinduism are one.” Jai Hind

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Kakinada District – 25 Fisherman families retuned to Hindu Dharma.

Wheeler Wilcox ((November 5, 1850 - October 30, 1919), American author and poet. said:  "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 is extremely happy to organize Ghar Waapasi in Seetharam Puram near Kakinada. Our Associate, Ajay Varma, who volunteered to participate in this effort has a long history of propagating the richness of Hindu Dharma. From the childhood he worked as a priest in their heritage Hanuman Temple and used do all kinds of Pujas, conduct homas, Satyanarayana Pujas and, many festivals bring bringing everybody to these festivals. He is very enthusiastic about propagating and preserving Sanatana Dharma and gives lecture at different Temples depicting the greatness of our culture and age old traditions. He also  has an experience of knocking on the doors of Christian families in and around Kakinada. He met them wherever he was able to approach and talk to them. Some of them he met at their houses, and some met in the neighborhood. 25 Families Returned to Hindu Fold Global Hindu Heritage Foundation and Hanuman Dal jointly welcomed Twenty five families into Sanatana Dharma from Kothapalli Mandalam in Kakinada District in Andhra Pradesh. Recognize the innocence and lack of knowledge in Hinduism, Christians have taken advantage of these Fisherman families and converted them in large numbers. Within three kilometer radius, more than 130 churches were built and about 80 percent fishermen were converted. For the first time in 12 years, Ammavari Jaatara {festival} was conducted. Even though many of them converted, they do visit Devi temple and believe in Devi. This festival inspired many of them to attend. Slowly with the support of GHHF and Hanuman Dal they agreed to return to Hindu Dharma.                 In addition to 25 families, more than 200 Hindus also participated in Doing Homas and other Pujas. Agni as witness {Fire God as witness), they have taken oath and said they will remain as Hindus. They signed a document saying that they voluntarily returned Hinduism. They were given Sarees and Dhotis to the returnees. Ajay Kumar said that GHHF is conducting the Ghar Waapasi program to welcome the converted Christians and explained the essence of various customs and traditions.  He was talking about the richness of Hinduism and especially about various customs and traditions. He talked about the significance of Kumkum on the forehead in between the eyebrows and Bangles on the wrist of the women. Kumkum is made of three components – turmeric, baking soda and lemon juice. Kumkum is consider auspicious and is used for wellbeing. It will protect the Ajneya Chakra – commanding center from distraction. In fact, it stores the positive energy and protect it from being drained. Some of the benefits of wearing Kumkum are relieve headache,  relaxes the muscle on forehead, clears up sinuses, affects your hearing, calms your mind, beats insomnia and others. It is also believed that applying the Kumkum while pressing on the Ajneya chakra also affects the penial and pituitary glands that increase the memory system. It is also the symbol of married women.              It is a traditional custom for women to wear bangles around the wrist of the hand. Whenever we use hand for any anting to do, it creates friction which increases the blood circulation. Since the bangles are ring shaped, energy created by friction would circulate instead of depleted. During Seemantham, they women are gifted with bangles whose noise while walking creates stimuli to the fetus. In fact, it has many health benefits. Wearing silver bangles enhances not only a person's beauty but it is claimed it will also increase the health and mental condition. Another common claim is that silver bangles for women are known to fight infections.

[GHHF] Met with Bala Samskar Teachers from Prakasam and Guntur Districts; Students from Guntur attended; Encouraged teachers to teach Hindu Values and Instill pride

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to announce that we organized a meeting with teachers from Prakasam District and Guntur District on June 12th.  About 16 teachers attended the meeting held in Sri Veera Hanuman Temple conference hall. Some of them traveled 130 kilometers to attend the meeting. Students came from Guntur Bala Samskar Kendras. Speaking about the importance of Hindu values, we talked about the importance of instilling pride and imparting the richness of Hinduism. Our society has failed to teach the grandeur of Hindu ethos. We talked about the scientific and spiritual knowledge embedded in our scriptures. As Mark Twain said that there is nothing under the sun that our ancient Rishis have not addressed.                 To appreciate our faith and its richness in literature and culture, we need to understand the true nature of Christianity and Islam. Unfortunately, we are still ill-equipped with the true nature of other religions. Violence, terror, killings, rapes, and destruction are advocated by Christianity and Islam. Hindus are the only ones who say that all religions are the same while the other two Abrahamic religions abhor Hinduism and do not have any respect. Both these religions have committed to wiping out Hinduism from the planet. It is time to realize the potential danger to Hinduism and start getting reacquainted with the richness of our heritage and understand why ahimsa, tolerance, inclusiveness, respect for others, and truth can save humanity from extinction.                 Srinivas Pinnamaneni talked to Teachers separately about molding the children's personalities. He said the future of our country depends on our children. It is the responsibility of the teachers to protect Dharma by molding the children and instill pride. They also need to show the difference between Bhagavad Gita and Christianity and Islam. The future of Bharat is in their hands. If they are successful in imparting the Hindu ethos, Bharath will be saved from Abrhamic religions intolerance and terror. Bala Samskar Kendras in FIVE States On June 6, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is exceptionally happy to inform you that Bala Samskar Kendras (Sunday Schools) were conducted in about 151 Villages/localities in five States: Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka.

We are planning more Bala Samskar Kendras in Tamil Nadu and Assam and also increasing the centers in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Sponsor one or more Schools We need all the support we can get to expand the number of Bala Samskar Kendras (Centers) to 150 as of May 15, 2022. Sponsor each School for $1200 per year.

GHHF – Protect our mother — Sanatana Dharma. Hinduism Survive? She is being attacked, stabbed and Suffocated.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to inform you that we had a very good meeting on different aspects of the survival of Hinduism The meeting was held in Siddhartha College in Vijayawada on June 11, 2022. I mentioned that Bharat is under attack from Christians, Muslims, Hindu politicians and Secularists. For their Vote bank politics, they are undermining their own Dharma.  Secularists an Leftists are real threat for survival of Hinduism. Any body who cannot define Secularism but claiming to be secular is deliberately attacking Hinduism and subverting their our dharma. We suggested that we should refrain from making suggestions without taking the responsibility to implement one’s own suggestion. We all should think how we should protect our mother when she is being attacked. We should mot be silent and become a spectator. If we have not learned from the history and what happened to Hinduism over the last ten centuries, attacks by both Muslims and Christians, we are likely to commit the same mistakes. We are likely to see the same fate our forefathers went through. Talked about the incessant attacks on Hindu Temples, barbaric killings of Muslims, rapes, and lootings. How Hindus were dismembered and tortured? The most sacred Temples were destroyed and built mosques on top of the Hindu Temples. Hindu Kush Mountain witnessed countless Hindu blood flowing from the top of the mountains to the streets at the ground level. Sita Ram Goel's book should be an eye-opener for every Hindu. Similarly, Christians committed similar attacks on Hindus and were tortured and killed in Goa. 2)      People who suggest that all  Religions are same are doing more damage that what they beleive. Anybody who thinks that way is contributing to the demise of Hinduism. For their self-interest, politicians, secularists and communists are encouraging the other faiths to attack and kill. Many references were given from Quran and Bible that allows them to attack our Temples and our culture. 3)     Srinivas Pinnamaneni talked about our activities at the ground level - annadanam, ghar waapasi, bala sanskar kendras and gramadevata restoration. He explained about the logestics and coordination of these activities in five States.  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 Pracharaks working at the ground level. More people we hire more villages can cover 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] 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}}
