[GHHF] Conducting 151 Bala Samskar Kendras in Five States – Enormous Growth in Six Months.  Need Sponsors to Expand the Centers.  

Bhagat Singh (September 28, 1907 – March 23, 1931) “It is easy to kill individuals but you cannot kill the Ideas. Great empires crumbled, while the ideas survived. Life is Lived on its own… Other’s shoulders are used only at the time of funeral. Bombs and pistols do not make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting-stone of ideas. The Sanctity of law can be maintained only so long as it is the expression of the will of the people.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to announce that we are conducting 150 Bala Samskar Kendras in five different States. Many of the villagers expressed their appreciation to conduct these classes so that their children would not be exploited by Christians. They are happy to know that their children are learning about the meaning of so many customs and traditions. They were thrilled to  see their children come home and do namaskar for them which was very satisfying. Many parents also mentioned that their children come to know about the meaning of various festivals and know why celebrate them. Unique Feature Celebrated the birth of Tagore Celebrated Subhash Chandra Bose Birthday Celebrated Mother’s Day on May 8th Mother has been extolled as a god form in several places in the puranas and also God has been approached as a son approaches his mother by many great savants. She is Dhatri (One who bears the child), Janani (one who gives birth to the child), Amba (One who nourishes the limbs of the child) and Veerasu (One who makes him a hero), Shusroo (One who takes care of him). But Sankara in these poems is not dealing either of God in the form of mother nor mother in the form of God. He laments to the lady who was his mother and points out how his conscience is pricking him for being not able to do the duty of a son.      Bala Samskar Kendras in FIVE States On May 15, 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. Planning to Bala Samskar Kendras in Bangladesh Bala Samskar Kendras are being organized in the following villages / locations Tirupati, Madanapalli, Visakhapatnam Agency Area, Visakhapatnam City, Addanki, Eluru Palem area, Guntur, Bhadrachalam, Pithapuram, Hyderabad, Kandi, Chennai, Bangalore, and Cachar in Assam. We are planning more Bala Samskar Kendras in Tamil Nadu and Assam and also increasing the centers in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Why did Bala Samskar Kendras Start? Our children are our strength. They are our future. They are going to be our Ambassadors to Hindu Dharma in preserving, protecting, and propagating our ancient civilization. For centuries, we as Hindus failed to transmit the knowledge to the next generations. With no knowledge about our faith and with no pride in the universality and non-violence of Sanatana Dharma, our children, as well as adults, have become targets for Christians to convert. They have used a plethora of deceptive tactics to woo our Hindus to Christianity as we are not able to defend our religion and also not able to question the barbaric nature of the Bible. We have become defenseless and not equipped with any knowledge about our heritage.                We should teach our children about its scientific discoveries in all scientific fields – mathematics, algebra, physics, asthmatics, computer science, dentistry, surgery, Ayurveda, yoga and meditation, and spirituality. We will try to teach our kids the science behind every aspect of our lives – customs and traditions handed down for millennials. Swami Chinmayananda stated,  “The true Hinduism is a science of perfection. There is, in this true Hinduism, a solution to every individual, social, national, and international problem. True Hinduism is the Sanatana Dharma of the Upanishads.” We also need to teach how Hinduism is different from other religions. 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. What is the Purpose of Starting Bala Samskar Kendras? Bala Samskar Kendras / Sunday Schools are being planned for two purposes: 1) To teach about the richness and glory of our Sanatana Dharma. Its eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in our scriptures, and its universal appeal to humanity. 2) Also prevent the Christian aggressive missionary threat to Hinduism. Children are lured away by the  Christians bribing them with many unnecessary needs to attract them. They give Chocolates, pens, pencils, and promises of many material things and invite them to Churches and start brainwashing them to believe in their religion, and teach them to hate Hinduism. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is planning to start BALA SAMSKAR on Sundays as well as weekdays to impart the richness of Hindu Heritage that enunciated peace, harmony, inclusiveness, self-improvement, and universal welfare. Our Sunday School will discuss contributions Hinduism made in the fields of education, mathematics, astronomy. Arithmetic, quantum mechanics, metallurgy, surgery, medicine, dentistry, infinity, zero. Cosmology, literature, yoga and meditation, and other subjects. 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. You can suggest a teacher in your village or neighborhood in India to start Sunday School. DONATIONS PayPal Method: To donate visit our website: savetemples.org.

GHHF Speech on the Importance of Sanskrit at Annual Function of Samskriti Bharati in Frisco, TX

Namaste I want to express my appreciation for organizing the program in Sanskrit. It is important that we as Hindus promote and pass on the richness of Sanskrit. It is not only scientific but will be a unifying force for the Hindus, I want to thank Samskriti Bharati to invite me to speak on the significance and importance of Sanskrit.  VAarshikOtsavaH at Frisco2 Kendram was attend by around 160 Samskrta anuraaginaha. The theme was Ramayana and 7 Balakendra vargaaha classes plus 3 proudha vargaha classes performed Ramayanam based skits and geetams. Sanskrit was considered "Dev Bhasha", " Devavani "or the language of the Gods by ancient Indians. The word Sanskrit, meaning "refined," “complete”, “perfect,” “definitive,” or "purified," is the antonym of Prakriti, meaning "natural," or "vulgar." It is made up of primordial sounds and is developed systematically to include the natural progressions of sounds as captured by the human mind. Our ancient rishis were able to capture the natural sounds of panchabhutas such as wind blowing, rain, hissing, roaring, ocean waves, thunder, fire, silence, and birds chirping and translate them into oral language and finally into written language. Sanskrit was the language used by ancient Indians in a wide variety of fields such as astronomy, medicine, mathematics, literature, chemistry, algebra, kavya, drama, politics, spiritual, religious scriptures, and others. Swami Vivekananda says, “This Sanskrit language is so intricate, the Sanskrit of the Vedas is so ancient, and the Sanskrit philology so perfect, that any amount of discussion can be carried on for ages in regard to the meaning of one word.” The phonology (the speech sound) and morphology (the science of word formation) of the Sanskrit language is unique and entirely different from all of the languages of the world. The main feature of Sanskrit is that it contains 16 vowels and 36 consonants. The sounds of these 52 alphabets are fixed and precise from the very beginning. They withstood the time and were never changed,  altered, modified, or improved. From times immemorial, the words created by combining the alphabets of the Sanskrit language always had the same pronunciation. “ Swami Prakashananda Saraswati observed that Sanskrit is considered a most wonderful language with clarity, accuracy, exactness, and precision. Every letter and word has a vibrant sound and should be uttered without any deviation. It should be pronounced properly and meticulously. Even a slight alteration in their pronunciation can spell disaster. The meaning may change to catastrophic results. W. C.  Taylor, an American Indologist was moved by the richness of Sanskrit language. “It is an astounding discovery that Hinduism possessed, in spite of the changes of realms and changes of time, a language of unrivalled richness and variety …. A philosophy, compared with which, in point of age, the lessons of Pythagoras are but of yesterday, and in point of daring speculation Plato's boldest efforts were tame and commonplace. A poetry more purely intellectual than any of those of which we had before any conception; and systems of science whose antiquity baffled all power of astronomical calculation. This literature, with all its colossal proportions, which can scarcely be described without the semblance of bombast and exaggeration claimed of course a place for itself - it stood alone, and it was able to stand alone.” A. L. Basham, former professor of Asian Civilization at the Australian National University, Canberra, writes in his book The Wonder That Was India says that Sanskrit is a marvelous, majestic, scientific, and spiritual language. Its depth, fullness, splendor, simplicity, and complexity at the same time is peerless.: "One of ancient India’s greatest achievements is her remarkable alphabet, commencing with the vowels and followed by the consonants, all classified very scientifically according to their mode of production, in sharp contrast to the haphazard and inadequate Roman alphabet, which has developed organically for three millennia. It was only on the discovery of Sanskrit by the West that science of phonetics arose in Europe."(P:390) Basham goes on to say "It will be seen that this alphabet is methodical and scientific, its elements classified first into vowels and consonants, and then, within each section, according to the manner in which the sound is formed. The gutturals are formed by the construction of the throat at the back of the tongue, the palatals by pressing the tongue flat against the palate, the retro-flexes by turning up the tip of the tongue to touch the hard palate, the dentals by touching the upper teeth with the tongue, and the labials by pursuing the lips." (p: 509) Benefits of Learning Sanskrit Learning Sanskrit improves brain functioning. Students start getting better marks in other subjects like Mathematics, Science, etc., which some people find difficult. It enhances memory power. Our ancient rishis have analyzed the various chakras (energy centers) in the human body and are identified with Sanskrit alphabets. Reading, reciting, and chanting the Sanskrit words will stimulate these points and raises the energy levels, whereby resistance against illnesses, relaxation of mind, and reduction of stress are achieved. Sanskrit is the only language that uses all nerves of the tongue. By its pronunciation energy points in the body are activated that causing the blood circulation to improve. This, coupled with enhanced brain functioning and higher energy levels, ensures better health. Blood Pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, etc. are controlled. (American Hindu University). Research has shown that the phonetics of this language has roots in various energy points and chakras of the body and reading, speaking, or reciting Sanskrit stimulates these points and raises the energy levels, whereby resistance against illnesses, relaxation of mind, and reduction of stress are achieved. There are reports that Russians, Germans, and Americans are actively doing research on our sacred books and are producing them back to the world in their name. Seventeen countries around the world have a University or two to study in Sanskrit to gain technological advantages. T. R. Seshadri in his book ‘The Curative Powers OF the Holy Gita’ reveals that most modern-day diseases are psychosomatic – caused by the mind. Emotional disturbances like hatred, anger, and fear destroy not only our peace of mind but our health as well. They are often caused by the over-or-under secretion of the endocrine glands which secrete chemical hormones into the bloodstream, which affects body functions like growth, digestion and energy levels, etc. The author identified about 30 shlokas that have curative powers. It also mentions the method in which the shlokas have to be recited. To quote from the book “…advocate reciting/chanting the specific Mantras three times, once in the morning and once in the evening, and towards the close of Yogic practice….” The shlokas are to be chanted in Sanskrit. For example, by chanting 2:56 sloka in Bhagavad Gita, one may get relief from blood pressure (hypertension, hypotension), depression, impotency, neurosis, sexual disorders, stress, syphilis, and venereal infections. Sloka 2:61 would have an impact on AIDS, alcohol and drug addiction, blood pressure, brain disorders, depression, mental disorders, mind control, neurosis, psychic and psychosomatic illness, sexual disorders, stress, stroke, and tension. Similarly, by chanting sloka 9:18, one may get some help during childbirth, conception, delivery, gynecological disorders, menstrual problems, and pregnancy. Rutger Kortenhorst, a Sanskrit teacher in John Scottus School in Dublin, Ireland, invited the parents of the children who enrolled in Sanskrit class and spoke to them about the value of teaching Sanskrit based on his own experience with the language. He is confident that the children will be fortunate to have taken this extraordinary language as a part of their curriculum. He said, “Sanskrit can help your child to express universal, harmonious, and simple truths better. As a result, you will really have done your duty as a parent and the world will reap the benefits of a more humane, harmonious, and united society. Sanskrit can do this as it is the only language that is based on knowing all the way. Nothing is left to chance. “One who has the time to undertake a study of Sanskrit will benefit enormously by it. Clearer thinking, grander philosophical and religious outlooks, a finer appreciation of the clarifies and niceties of expression, of subtle metaphysical, philosophical, and scientific distinctions that not one of the Occidental tongues so richly has: these one will learn by a continued study of the Sanskrit language.”  -- G. DE PURUCKER, from a lecture delivered at Theosophical University, July 14, 1940. Judith Tyberg, whose birthday happens to be on May 16th studied Sanskrit and written thee books on Sanskrit. In the book “Sanskrit Keys to the World Religion”, she observed that Sanskrit is one of the noblest languages that human genius has brought forth. Because of its grandeur, it is one of the most difficult to understand. Sanskrit is the pride of the people of India, and knowledge of it gives the key to their hearts. It is the learned language of India, the language of its cultured inhabitants, the language of its religion, philosophy, literature, and science, a language very much alive in the heart-life of its people. {{album_541}}

[GHHF] Ground Level Activities updated from April 16 thru May 10 – Ghar Waapasi, Bala Kendras and other topics.

Hajime Nakamura (1912 - 1999) “The Indians are, at the same time, logical since they generally have a tendency to sublimate their thinking to the universal; they are at once logical and rationalistic. On the contrary, many religions of the West are irrational and illogical, and this is acknowledged by the Westerners themselves. For example, Albert Schweitzer, a pious and most devoted Christian, says, “Compared to the logical religions of Asia, the gospel of Jesus is illogical.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is posting our activities every day on our website as well as on WhatsApp Groups, Facebook, Twitter, and Linked In. Many people who are not in these groups are not in a position to know the progress of our activities, hence we summarize the major activities once every ten days or so. We request all our readers to visit our website on a daily basis to acquaint themselves with our ground-level activities. http://www.savetemples.org 1) Bala Samskar Kendra Students celebrated Mother’s Day by doing Pujas to Mothers (May 10) As we celebrate Mother’s Day as per the traditions in the west on May 8, let us pay tribute to the role of the mother and her contribution in shaping the family as well as a nation. In the Hindu way of life, a mother is always remembered, reminisced, cherished, respected, honored, glorified, and worshipped. Mother is considered the pillar of the Hindu family; the pinnacle of sacrifice; the embodiment of love; affection and compassion; the source of inspiration and encouragement; the personification of peace and harmony; the foundation of strength and courage; the epitome of age-old wisdom and prudence; a hallmark of patience and endurance; the quintessence of solace and comfort; exemplification of kindness and gentleness; a reservoir of inexhaustible blessings; Celebrated Mother’s Day on May 8thMother has been extolled as a god form in several places in the Puranas and also God has been approached as a son approaches his mother by many great savants. 2) Ghar Waapasi in Tirupati Area – Welcomed 21 Christians Back to Hinduism (May 9) Our Pracharaks welcomed and recognized 2 Christians back to Sanatana Dharma from Aggi Chenu Palli ST Colony from Veduru Kuppam Mandalam. Five women, six males, and ten children returned to Hindu Dharmam. This function was attended by about another 20 villagers and witnessed this auspicious occasion. Sri Reddappa was invited as a Special guest who spoke about the greatness of Hindu Dharma and how it will enable society to function as a peaceful and human entity.   3) Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur – Erected a signboard “Hindus only Live Here. Non-Hindu Missionary Activities are Prohibited“ (May 7) by the activities of the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation and Savetemples organization, encouraged by the dedication of Sri Gopi Chary and the Pracharaks, heartened by the richness of our Hindu Dharma, and realizing the menace Christian Missionaries are creating across the nation, Brahmana Palli Tanda villagers decided to declare their village as Hindu Village. Save Temples agreed with their idea to put up a board saying that no missionaries should come to our village in the future, and with the cooperation of everyone in the village, they triumphantly put up a board saying that no missionaries should come to our village. Then the elders passed a resolution to erect this in the village: “Hindus Only Live Here. Non-Hindu Missionary Activities are Prohibited.” 4) Discussed with Sri Ram Madhav our activities at the Ground Level and also about the lawlessness and Denial of Fundamental Rights to Hindus in different States (May 5) Bala Samskar Kendras: In order to protect our children from the vile Christian Pastors who lure our Hindu kids to the Church by offering biscuits, chocolates, pens, pencils, etc. we started Sunday schools for Children to teach them about the richness of our heritage, traditions, and customs. At present we started Bala Samskar Kendras in 150 villages to make them proud of their richness of Hindu Dharma. We started these Kendras because our family is not able to teach the basics of Hinduism to their children. Schools have become anti-Hindu and are not able to teach about Hindu ethics, morals, and traditions. Hindu Temples are not in a position to teach as the Priests are basically trained in the performance of rituals, and worship services. Not only are we trying to teach about Hindu Dharma, but we are also helping them to do homework to give broader knowledge to the children. Austin Chapter Started; An Emotional 3-hour marathon session on the progress of Ghar Waapasi and Bala Samskar Kendras organized. (May 2) Explained as to how we started Annadanam, Ghar Waapasi, Bala Samskar Kendras and renovation of Grama Devatas. Many people shed tears when we talked about how our religion which we consider as Second Mother is being attacked, maligned, suffocated, and stifled. Why do we as Hindus keep silent, indifferent, and mum when our mother is being attacked. Every Hindu should take it as his personal responsibility to protect her, promote her and propagate her for the sake of humanity. Without Hinduism, there is no peace or harmony on this mother earth. Many people became emotional and wanted to be part of GHHF. We will soon decide as to the members of the GHHF Austin team who agreed to be part of our mission. 6) Ghar Waapasi in Agency Area near Visakhapatnam – 73 Christian Families Returned to Hindu Dharma. (April 30) A remote village known as Seshu Bandla in the agency area is located in Koyyuru Mandalam in the newly created Alluri Seetharamaraju District. Sri Swamiji has been visiting this village for more than two years. It is a very remote village which is very difficult to even reach. There are two churches in the village – basically, it is a big hut, not a real structure. The pastor used to come every Sunday and had sermons and collect money and leave. Except for three families, all of the families were going to the church. The heads of three families who did not become Christians used to be priests for three different Grama Devatas located in the village. They insisted that the Devis told them not to get converted to Christianity. The names of the Devis are Nukalamma, Ishwaryamm, and Shanku Devi talli. Thus, they remained Hindus even though the rest of the village embraced Christianity. 7) Five Dasavataras Vigrahas belonging to Sri Bhaavanarayana Temple were destroyed; Organized Protests; Submitted Petition to MRO to Investigate immediately (April 29) The BhaavanarayanaTemple complex has many Vigrahas erected along the way to the Temple. All Dasavataras Vigrahas are erected in the middle of the main road separating the lanes. One can witness these Vigrahas as they go through the main street that leads to the Temple. On April 21, 2022, five Dasavataras Vigrahas were destroyed. Unidentified individuals broke them overnight. The Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, along with Hanuman Dal, has filed a petition along with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), explaining that another state-level movement would be launched if it did not punish the culprits and erect new idols. They asked the authorities to act immediately. 8) Sharia Law is around the corner; Muslims attacked Ram Navami Processions; Started Holy War Against India - “Ghazwa-e-Hind” (April 26) On April 13, 2022, a special court in Hyderabad found All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) legislator Akbaruddin Owaisi not guilty in hate speech cases registered against him in 2012 . Akbaruddin Owaisi repeated his ‘15 minute’ provocative phrase which he had made in 2012 while addressing a crowd on Tuesday. In 2012, he had made a highly inflammatory speech asking to remove the police for 15 minutes so that he could finish off 100 crores Hindus. “No person from RSS or Bajrang Dal can even touch our hair and remember, remember, the world tries to scare the person who gets scared. And the world fears the person who knows how to instill fear. Why do they hate Akbaruddin Owaisi? Why? A single blow of a blacksmith is equal to a hundred blows of a goldsmith. They (RSS) have not yet recovered from the ’15 minute’ blow,'” Akbaruddin Owaisi said, repeating this ’15 minutes’ threat. 9) Ghar Waapasi in Telangana – Welcomed 10 Christians back to Hinduism from Khammam District (April 25) Lakshmi Nivas and his associates welcomed 10 Christians from Khammam District back to Hindu Dharma. They come from two villages from Sattupalli Mandalam in Khammam district – Yathalakunta and Regala Padu. They used to go to two Churches: MB Church, and Viswani Church. They talked about the tactics they used in converting people and how they induce people to convert to Christianity. Many converts expressed their own experience of being pressured into accepting Christianity and how it created fear in them.   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 so far. More people we hire, more villages can be covered to welcome them back and also create Chaitanya (Awareness) among the students and villagers. 1) Donate any amount to help the Dharma Pracharaks to work at the ground level. 2) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Telangana –14 Christians were welcomed back to Hinduism from Narayanapeta District

Rabindranath Tagore “There aretwo religions in earth, which have distinct enmity against all other religions.These two are Christianity and Islam. They are notjust satisfied with observing their own religions, but are determined todestroy all other religions. That’s why the only way to make peace with them isto embrace their religions.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association withNitya Satyam has been organizing Ghar Waapasi in the Telangana area. LakshmiNivas and his volunteers went to many villages and talked about the richness ofour culture knowing that they became Christians not because of the message ofthe Bible but because of their financial circumstances, health-related issues,deceptive interpretation of Hindu scriptures, and demeaning of the multiplicity ofHindu Gods. Welcomed14 Christians back to Hinduism Lakshmi Nivas and his associates welcomed 14 Christians from NarayanapetaDistrict back to Hindu Dharma. They come from two villages from Narayanapeta  Mandalam – Kavarampalli and Abhampur. Theyused to go to two Churches: Vincent Church and  MB Hermon Church.  They talked about thetactics they used in converting people and how they induce people to convert toChristianity. Many converts expressed their own experience of being pressuredinto accepting Christianity and how it created fear in them.Jesus says one cannot love his parents more than HIMAs you can see that Jesus came here with a sword only tocreate enemies, and hatred toward others. He says we have to leave our parents,not associate with our family members, and not even attend funerals. Even yourfather you cannot do last rights for your own father.Laxmi Nivas talked about the difference between Christianityand Hinduism and the kind of respect we have toward our parents. Mother hasbeen extolled as a god form in several places in the Puranas and also God hasbeen approached as a son.  She is Dhatri (One who bears the child), Janani(one who gives birth to the child), Amba (One who nourishes the limbs of thechild), and Veerasu (One who makes him a hero), Shusroo (One who takes care ofhim). Jesus is his Only Father      In contrast, we read in the Bible that Jesussays that anybody who loves his parents cannot to a true believer in Jesus. Theyhave to give up their parents and their love for their parents in order to havefaith in Jesus. He even says that if a man does not hate his parents, wife, andchildren, he cannot be Jesus’ disciple.The Christian missionaries come prepared to even engage inviolence and threaten the Hindus to accept Christianity. Christianity practicedin India is an insult to humanity. It is the most violent, ridiculous, andbloody religion ever infected the earth. Even the Christians across the globeadmit the missionary wickedness and vicious methods they use to convert thenatives to Christianity. They cut your throat and or force the people toaccept their customs and opinions. They make the converts insult Hindu Gods bystepping on them or spitting on them. A 52-page book comparing the verses inBible and Bhagavad Gita is also distributed.Christians have less tolerance toward other religions –especially Hinduism. For example, the Ten Commandments state that "Youshall not recognize the gods of others in My presence. You shall not makeyourself a carved image nor any likeness of that which is in the heavens aboveor on the earth below or in the water beneath the earth. You shall notprostrate yourself to them nor worship them, for I am the Lord, your God."Bible God is jealous, selfish, hateful, envious, intolerant, and abusive GOD.He is anything but tolerant, and patient, as the Police officer claimed.Christians tend to demonize Hinduism and do not respect anyother religions. Intolerant Christians say that all other religions areincomplete, and their followers go to hell and burn eternally for not acceptingJesus. Non-Christians will either go to hell or get condemned.   They willnot be saved.Christians cannot stand alone. They have to be crowdedtogether to defend their faith. They are like parasites. They have to feedthemselves by embracing the host country and slowly sucking their resources andtrying to destroy them. They cannot answer any questions. They would not allowanybody to ask questions because Bible is full of contradictions, rapes,killings, and hatred.The Christian missionaries come prepared to even engage inviolence and threaten the Hindus to accept Christianity.

Many of them are receptive to hearing what we are trying tosay and started reading about what is happening in Telangana and AndhraPradesh.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras Celebrated Rabindranath Tagore Jayanthi; Competition was held on his poems and his life.

Rabindranath Tagore “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold service was joy.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is incredibly happy to inform you that we have appointed four Pracharaks and Bala Samskar teachers in and around Cachar City in Assam. Cachar is an administrative district in the state. The district headquarters, Silchar, is one of the most important business centers of Assam. In 2006, the Indian government named Cachar one of the country's 250 most backward districts out of a total of 640.                 Sri Samrat Dutt from Cachar has been coordinating and organizing activities in ASSAM– Ghar Waapasi and Bala Samskar and other activities. He was responsible for identifying four Pracharaks – two males and two females. He also identified 10 teachers for Bala Samskar. He even found three villages where Bala Samskar Kendras are being sponsored by them. GHHF would like to express our appreciation to SamratJi for his passion and determination to coordinate and supervise these activities. Bala Samskar Kendras Celebrated Rabindranath Tagore GHHF Bala Samskar centers with the help and participation of villagers celebrated Rabindra Jayanti on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Great Rabindranath Tagore. Not only the matter of the ground-level revolution is important, but the cultural fraternity, the art, Songs, Poetry, novels, short stories, and other forms of writing and recitations actually form the foundation of a revolution.  Rabindranath Tagore was a Bengali polymath who worked as a poet, writer, playwright, composer, philosopher, social reformer, and painter. He reshaped Bengali literature and music as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries Rabindranath Tagore composed and wrote our National anthem. Apart from Jana Gana Mana (the National Anthem of India), his composition ‘Amar Shonar Bangla’ was adopted as the National Anthem of Bangladesh and the National Anthem of Sri Lanka was inspired by one of his works. Rabindranath Tagore specifically said about the other two religions:  there are two religions in the world  which have distinct enmity against all other religions. These two  are Christianity and Islam. They are. Not just satisfied with observing their  own religion  but are determined to destroy all other religions. That’s why the only way to make peace with them is to embrace their religions ( Book Rabindranath 24,page375 ,Viswa Bharati, 1882) Competitions held; Prizes Distributed On this occasion competition organized on Rabindra Math Tagore poem, song etc. Bala Samskar Children along with other children of the village participated, recited poems. Following the competition, prizes were distributed amongst the participants. The Villagers also participated and performed the life history of Tagore.                Many teachers read about the parts of Tagore’s life history, the poems he has written and mentioned the number of books he has written. They reminisced about the Nobel Prize he received for his literature. Some of his famous short stories include ‘Kabuliwala,’ ‘Kshudita Pashan,’ ‘Atottju,’ ‘Haimanti’ and ‘Musalmanir Golpo’ among many other stories. His famous novels include ‘Noukadubi,’ ‘Gora,’ ‘Chaturanga,’ ‘Ghare Baire’ and ‘Jogajog’. Famous people quote on Tagore Buddhadeva Bose declared in An Acre of Green Grass, “It would be trite to call him versatile; to call him prolific very nearly funny.” Bose added, “The point is not that his writings run into a hundred thousand pages of print, covering every form and aspect of literature, though these matters: he is a source, a waterfall, flowing out in a hundred streams, a hundred rhythms, incessantly.” Mary M. Lago pointed out in Rabindranath Tagore, “many of his readers never knew—still do not know—that so many of his poems were written as words for music, with musical and verbal imagery and rhythms designed to support and enhance each other.” 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] Hindu Advocates Forum of Assam sent a Letter to r Sri Amit Shaw to Implement Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). No Action since its passage in 2019

Swami Vivekananda “Hindu Dharma is the quintessence of our national life, hold fast to it if you want your country to survive, or else you would be wiped out in three generations”. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is incredibly happy to inform you that we have appointed four Pracharaks and Bala Samskar teachers in and around Cachar City in Assam. Cachar is an administrative district in the state. The district headquarters, Silchar, is one of the most important business centers of Assam. In 2006, the Indian government named Cachar one of the country's 250 most backward districts out of a total of 640.                 Sri Samrat Dutt from Cachar has been coordinating and organizing activities in ASSAM– Ghar Waapasi and Bala Samskar and other activities. He was responsible for identifying four Pracharaks – two males and two females. He also identified 10 teachers for Bala Samskar. He even found three villages where Bala Samskar Kendras are being sponsored by them. GHHF would like to express our appreciation to SamratJi for his passion and determination to coordinate and supervise these activities. Hindu Advocates Forum sent a letter to Hon'ble Amit Shah Hindu Advocates Forum sent a letter to Hon'ble Amit Shah, Home Minister of Bharat for the formulation of rules of the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019. It's been a long 3 years that CAA has not come into force even after passed in both the houses of parliament just due to pressure from Islamists. This is to be noted that CAA is for the persecuted  Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Christians of Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc.                “With the MHA (Ministry of Home Affairs) not notifying the rules, they cannot be implemented. According to the Manual of Parliamentary procedure, rules have to be framed within six months from the date on which the statue came into force. In case the Ministries/Department are not able to frame the rules within the prescribed period of six months, they should seek an extension of time from the Committee on Subordinate Legislation stating reasons for such extension. That, “Hindus are not foreigners in Indi”, Citizenship Rights of the Hindus will be protected,” Detention camps are not for Hindus,” … Even when you were addressing a BJP seminar on NRC in Kolkata you said:                “I want to assure the people of Bengal NRC will be implemented but nothing of this sort is going to happen. I assure all Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jain refugees they won’t have to leave the country, they will get Indian citizenship and enjoy all the rights of an Indian national.” But, in reality, the picture is different. Hindu Advocates documented the death of a Hindu who came to India from Bangladesh. He was thrown into a Detention camp as a foreigner instead of treating him as persecuted Hindu from Bangladesh. He died in the morning of October 13, 2021.”                Assam has six Detention Camps to put in jail any illegal immigrants. But most Hindus are in these camps. Even Supreme Court allowed those who stayed there for more than two years to be released. Thus, the Advocates requested the Minister to look into this matter to formulate the guidelines and implement them as soon as possible.  The CAA is designed to make sure that minorities in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh are not treated as illegal immigrants if they entered India. Minorities in these countries are identified as Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis, or Christians before 2014. Ever since the CAA is passed many self-serving political parties, crooked politicians, radical students, and Muslims who want to make India a Muslim country, the wretched media, and mindless secularists have all conspired to rake up controversy and tarnish the image of India and discredit Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We mentioned that minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan are allowed to get Citizenship in India because they are being prosecuted. For example, the Hindu population dwindled from about 20 % to 1.2% in Pakistan. A similar experience is faced by Hindus in Bangladesh where the Hindu population declined from about 25% to about 6%. Minorities in these three countries are systematically persecuted by the government and the people. Islam does not tolerate any other religious people. The majority of Islamic countries do not give any freedom to worship and deny fundamental rights. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation organized a meeting in Dallas in SUPPORT OF CAA on February 23, 2020. As we are all aware the Citizenship Amendment Act was passed by both the houses and became an ACT on December 12, 2019. 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 twenty people so far. More people we hire, more villages can be covered to welcome them back and also create Chaitanya (Awareness) among the students and villagers. 1) Donate any amount to help the Dharma Pracharaks to work at the ground level. 2) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 - $3500.00 per year.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendra Students celebrated Mother’s Day by doing Pujas to Mothers:

Reviving Age-Old Custom of Honoring MotherO Mother! May the society appreciate your potential?May they seek your blessings from east, west, north, south, and everywhere. Andmay you bless them with prosperity and happiness. (Yajur Veda: 6:36)Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to announcethat we are conducting 150 Bala Samskar Kendras in five different States. Manyof the villagers expressed their appreciation to conduct these classes so thattheir children would not be exploited by Christians. They are happy to knowthat their children are learning about the meaning of so many customs andtraditions. They were thrilled to see their children come home and donamaskar for them which was very satisfying. Many parents also mentioned that theirchildren come to know about the meaning of various festivals and know why they celebrate them.Celebrated Mother’s Day on May 8thMother has been extolled as a god form in several places inthe Puranas and also God has been approached as a son approaches his mother bymany great savants. She is Dhatri (One who bears the child), Janani (one whogives birth to the child), Amba (One who nourishes the limbs of the child), andVeerasu (One who makes him a hero), Shusroo (One who takes care of him). ButSankara in these poems is not dealing with either of God in the form of mother normother in the form of God. He laments to the lady who was his mother and pointsout how his conscience is pricking him for being not able to do the duty of ason.                As wecelebrate Mother’s day as per the traditions in the west on May 8, let us paytribute to the role of the mother and her contribution in shaping the family aswell as a nation. In the Hindu way of life, a mother is always remembered,reminisced, cherished, respected, honored, glorified, and worshipped.Mother is considered the pillar of the Hindu family; the pinnacle of sacrifice; the embodiment of love; affection andcompassion; the source of inspiration and encouragement; the personification of peaceand harmony; the foundation of strength and courage; the epitome of age-old wisdom andprudence; a hallmark of patience and endurance; the quintessence of solace andcomfort; exemplification of kindness and gentleness; a reservoir of inexhaustibleblessings; and personification of patience and tolerance.How can we forget the forbearanceof a mother who conceived us and carried us for nine months in her womb; sufferedmonths of morning sickness; saw us grow day by day; fed us through the tube;allowed us to take shape as we developed a backbone, skin, fingers, nails, eyelids, eyebrows, nose, ears, hands, legs, toes, heart, head, brain, and so onfor nine months; and carried all the weight all these months; endured all thesounds and kicking; spent countless nights without sleep; withstood all thediscomforts; and finally gave birth. How can we forget the mother’s enduranceand tenacity during those nine months? Bala Samskar Kendras in FIVEStates On May 8, the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is exceptionally happy to inform youthat Bala Samskar Kendras (Sunday Schools) were conducted in about 150Villages/localities in five States: Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka. Bala Samskar Kendras are being organized in the following villages / locations Tirupati, Madanapalli, Visakhapatnam Agency Area, Visakhapatnam City, Addanki,Eluru Palem area, Guntur, Bhadrachalam, Pithapuram, Hyderabad, Kandi, Chennai,Bangalore, and Cachar in Assam. We are planning more Bala Samskar Kendras inTamil Nadu and Assam and also increasing the centers in Telangana and AndhraPradesh. Why did Bala Samskar Kendras Start? Our children are our strength. They are our future. They are going to be ourAmbassadors to Hindu Dharma in preserving, protecting, and propagating ourancient civilization. For centuries, we as Hindus failed to transmit theknowledge to the next generations. With no knowledge about our faith and withno pride in the universality and non-violence of Sanatana Dharma, our children,as well as adults, have become targets for Christians to convert. They haveused a plethora of deceptive tactics to woo our Hindus to Christianity as weare not able to defend our religion and also not able to question the barbaricnature of the Bible. We have become defenseless and not equipped with anyknowledge about our heritage.                We should teach ourchildren about its scientific discoveries in all scientific fields –mathematics, algebra, physics, asthmatics, computer science, dentistry,surgery, Ayurveda, yoga and meditation, and spirituality. We will try to teachour kids the science behind every aspect of our lives – customs and traditionshanded down to millennials. Swami Chinmayananda stated,  “The trueHinduism is a science of perfection. There is, in this true Hinduism, a solutionto every individual, social, national, and international problem. True Hinduismis the Sanatana Dharma of the Upanishads.” We also need to teach how Hinduism is different from other religions. To appreciate our faith and its richness in literature and culture, we need tounderstand the true nature of Christianity and Islam. Unfortunately,  weare 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 theother two Abrahamic religions abhor Hinduism and do not have any respect. Boththese religions have committed to wiping out Hinduism from the planet. It istime to realize the potential danger to Hinduism and start getting reacquaintedwith the richness of our heritage and understand why ahimsa, tolerance,inclusiveness, respect for others, and truth can save humanity from extinction. What is the Purpose of Starting Bala Samskar Kendras? Bala Samskar Kendras / Sunday Schools are being planned for two purposes:1) To teach about the richness and glory of our SanatanaDharma. Its eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in ourscriptures, and its universal appeal to humanity.2) Also prevent the Christian aggressive missionary threatto Hinduism. Children are lured away by the  Christians bribing them withmany unnecessary needs to attract them. They give Chocolates, pens, pencils,and promises of many material things and invite them to Churches and startbrainwashing them to believe in their religion, and teach them to hateHinduism.Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is planning to start BALASAMSKAR on Sundays as well as weekdays to impart the richness of Hindu Heritagethat enunciated peace, harmony, inclusiveness, self-improvement, and universalwelfare. Our Sunday School will discuss contributions Hinduism made in thefields of education, mathematics, astronomy. Arithmetic, quantum mechanics,metallurgy, surgery, medicine, dentistry, infinity, zero. Cosmology,literature, yoga and meditation, and other subjects. Sponsor one or more Schools We need all the support we can get to expand the number of Bala Samskar Kendras(Centers) to 120 as of March 27, 2022. Sponsor each School for $1200 per year.You can suggest a teacher in your village or neighborhood in India to startSunday School. DONATIONS PayPal Method: To donate visit our website: savetemples.org.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Tirupati Area – Welcomed 21 Christians Back to Hinduism

Francois Gautier "Hindu have venerated the feminine element under its different manifestations: Mahalaxmi, Mahakali, Mahasaraswati, Maheshwari - and even India is feminine: "Mother India." She is the consciousness transcending all things, she is the emptiness beyond all emptiness, the smile beyond all smiles, the divine beauty beyond all earthly beauties. " Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in many Mandalas near Tirupati.  Our Associates K. Reddappa, K. Subbanna, and  Rosaiah have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in various villages and Mandalas in the Chittoor District. They talked to the Hindus in the village about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity and sought input from Hindu activists. Welcomed 21 Christians back to Hindu Dharma As we all know that our Pracharaks are required to go to one village a day and spend about 6-7 hours every day for six days a week. They usually spend 2-3 hours in the Hindu community and talk to the elders and the activists about the differences between Hinduism and Christianity. They share a 52-page book that listed about seventy-five verses from the Bible that contain so nasty, outrageous, insulting, and hateful statements that even Christians would be shocked and amazed. Then they go to the Christian families and slowly talk about the differences in terms of patience, respect for parents, and morality. Our Pracharaks welcomed and recognized 2 Christians back to Sanatana Dharma from Aggi Chenu Palli ST Colony from Veduru Kuppam Mandalam. Five women, six males, and ten children returned to Hindu Dharmam. This function was attended by about another 20 villagers and witnessed this auspicious occasion. Sri Reddappa was invited as a Special guest who spoke about the greatness of Hindu Dharma and how it will enable society to function as a peaceful and human entity.  As we mentioned that our mission is twofold: one is how to stop the conversion and the second is how to bring those Christians back to Hinduism. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. Our Pracharaks talked about the status of women in Christianity. In Hinduism, women are respected and honored. In fact, a mother is considered the first guru for her children. We say Matru Devo bhava. In Hindu scriptures, we find women as Goddesses and worship all of them. We have Lakshmi Devi, Saraswati Devi, and Parvati Devi – the wives of the trinity. We worship them and seek their blessings. Whereas in Christianity there is no concept of Divinity in women. There are no women goddesses. In fact, women are not given any recognition in the Bible. They cannot even ask any questions. They have to be silent in the church. They are only subservient to their husbands. If they have any doubts, they only have to ask their husbands and get their queries answered. The Dharma concept plays a vital role in conducting our way of life. It is everybody’s dharma to perform their activities. Every position in society is valued. Our responsibility is to fight in order to remove adharma. Wherever there is adharma, dharma has to be enforced even if it means waging a war. Inaction is not an option for anyone who upholds the concept of dharma. Arjuna decided not to wage war against his fellow cousin brothers, his Gurus, Bhishma Charya, and otherkin and kith. He was stuck with an amoral conundrum and totally confused about his dharma. He seeks  Bhagawan Krishna’s advice. Krishna says that in order to protect humanity from adharma, he has to do what dharma dictates. Bhagawan Krishna says, “Nothing is higher than a war against evil. A warrior such as you should be pleased with such a war, as it leads to heaven Krishna‘s discourses are described in the eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad Gita. At the end of his discourses, Krishna successfully convinces Arjuna to fight the battle of Kurukshetra only to eliminate adharma – evil, unrighteousness, deception, and cruelty. As Thomas Paine stated the Bible teaches us to rape and be cruel.            While talking to the Hindus, our Pracharaks highlighted the most preposterous statements with regard to incest and sexual promiscuity in the Bible. They read out some verses from Bible and read aloud to sow a few seeds of doubt about what they call the holy Bible. As many of you are aware that the Christians are moving into the sacred city of Tirupati and its periphery in the Chittoor District. They are planning to start converting within a radius of 50 kilometers. Christians are moving into this area to convert as many people as possible to make Tirupati a sacrilegious place instead of keeping it as a sacred place. Although many Hindu activists are doing many things, their efforts have not infiltrated into the villages where the conversion is taking place on a large scale. As Hindus concentrate on their intellectual endeavors, Christians are concentrating on conversion. It is time for all the intellectuals and activists to pause for a few minutes and look at the ground realities. Our intellectual endeavors and activists’ protests are not reaching the villages where conversion is rampant. We 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 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] Wishing Happy Mother’s Day – Let us glorify her protection and Sacrifice

On this Mother’s Day May 8, 2022, let us remember the sacrifices a mother makes, protection she provides, comfort she delivers, sufferings she endures, pain she bears, and eternal blessings she bestows Bhishma Pitamaha glorifies mother in Mokshadharma Parva in Mahabharata as thus: The mother is the panacea for all kinds of calamities. The existence of the mother invests one with protection; the reverse deprives one of all protection. The man who, though divested of prosperity enters his house, uttering the words, "O mother!"- has not to indulge in grief… . There is no shelter like the mother. There is no refuge like the mother. There is no defense like the mother. There is no one so dear as the mother. For having borne him in her womb the mother is the son’s dhatri. For having been the chief cause of his birth, she is his janani. For having nursed his young limbs, she is called amva (Amma). For nursing and looking after the son she is called sura. The mother is one’s own body.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur – Erected a signboard “Hindus only Live Here. Non-Hindu Missionary Activities are Prohibited“

Francois Gautier “You are forgetting what a privilege it is to be born anIndian -- and a Hindu at that -- inheritors of a spirituality that accepts thatGod manifests Himself under different names, at different times, when today theworld's two biggest monotheistic religions still think their God is the onlytrue one and it is their duty to convert everybody by guile orforce. " Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform you that Sri Gopi Chary Garu and his associates have been conductingGhar Waapasi in Anantapur District. They visit each house and distribute theflyers and talk about the richness of Hinduism and why they should return to their original religion. Under the guidance of Sri Gopi Chary, three Pracharakshave been going to villages with a mission to highlight the richness of Sanatana Dharma. They are going to the Christian families and giving information about the differences between Christianity and Hinduism. They are sharing the 4-page document about the rights of Hindus and how to encounter Christian aggression.  SignErected: Hindu only Live Here  Motivated by the activities of Global Hindu HeritageFoundation and Savetemples organization, encouraged by the dedication of Sri GopiChary and the Pracharaks,  heartened bythe richness of our Hindu Dharma, and realizing the menace ChristianMissionaries are creating across the nation,  Brahmana Palli Tanda villagers decided todeclare their village as Hindu Village. There were three families (about 11members) who became Christians few years ago. Our Pracharaks met with them afew times, talked about the difference between the two faiths and shared the copyof the 52 page bookGHHF Pracharaks met with these families and talked about thefamily background making the proud of their history. Thus, with our efforts,GHHF made all the families in the village to be Hindus. Sri Gopi Charysuggested that since everyone is a Hindu, it would be better to put up a boardin our village to prevent Missionaries from spreading false propaganda.  The elders in the villagers recognized theimportance of unity and harmony in the village and also realized the discordthe missionaries could create in the village, they wanted their children to belike them as Hindus in the future. They also felt that it is their responsibilityto teach their children about Hinduism and make them proud of their richheritage.    Save Temples agreed with their idea to put up a boardsaying that no missionaries should come to our village in the future, and with thecooperation of everyone in the village, they triumphantly put up a boardsaying that no missionaries should come to our village.               Then theelders passed a resolution to erect this in the village:       “HinduOnly Live Here. Non-Hindu Missionary Activities are Prohibited.”                Following theresolution it was decided to take the sign in procession all around the villagewith pride to enable everybody to be aware of the decision.  First thevillagers gathered  at Grama DevataTemple, Sri Gopi Chari Garu did sankalpam to everyone in the village, did Abhishekamto Grama Devata with Panchamrutham, then the goddess was adorned with silk clothes,and offered Mangala Harati.  After seekingthe blessings of the goddess, our Priest tied  protective bracelets around the wrist of thevillagers  and Tirtha was given to each oneof them.                All the childrenand adults in the village unanimously marched in procession by chanting  Jai Shriram, Jaijai Shriram and laid a wreathon the Sign Board which says that the missionaries are forbidden in thevillage. They carried the Sign Board along with GHHF Flex all around thevillage before it was erected in a very prominent place in the village.       Since many more people in the village are going to work aslaborers, village elders felt that these people need to be informed of theHindu tradition practices. Hence the requested GHHF to come to our village onceagain and do Pujas to the Village Goddess. Annadanam was served to more than120 villagers who attended the significant event of erecting the Sign Board . A Group of Villagers chased the Christian Missionaries toleave the Village. GHHF has been talking about the importance of preserving our customs andtradition and how these Pastors are exploiting the innocent villagers. One ofour missions is to make sure that Hindus are aware of the true nature of theBible and what is written in it. In one of the villages Hoolikallu, SriSudhakar led a group of people to question what is written in the Bible andasked them if they practice what is in the Bible. The missionaries starteddodging the question and started saying that Jesus is the real God. Then thevillagers got angry and started insisting that they should answer what is writtenin the book we published. As they were able to answer their questions, thevillagers asked them to leave the village and forced them out of theirvillage.  As Thomas Paine “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuousdebaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelentingvindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be moreconsistent that we called it the word of a demon than the Word of God. It is ahistory of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind.”Friedrich Nietzsche said that Christianity is the single great curse, thesingle great innermost depravity, the single great instinct of revenge, forwhich no means are poisonous, secretive, subterranean, small enough--I call itmankind's single immortal blemish. Howard Taft says that there is no divinityin Christ. Why would he make such a statement?                    Whenever they visit Hindu Families, ourPracharaks seek their assistance to identify the area and provide a few contactnumbers. With the assistance of Hindu families, our Pracharaks approached 84Christian families and invited them back to Hindu Dharma. Since our mission istwofold, we try to educate the Hindus about the Bible so that they would not beeasily converted to deceptive Christian methods. They visited Christianfamilies one at a time, standing in an open area in front of the houses,explaining the reasons for reconversion. They were inspired by Sri Gopi Chary’sassessment and his knowledge about the Bible and Bhagavad Gita He also explainedhow Christian pastors and nuns trap Hindus when they are either in distress orin financial hardships. In fact, these people had their own experiences ofbeing exploited by them. A large number of religious conversions in India by Christian missionariesthrough deception are not reported in mainstream news. The media is playingpolitics to make sure that the minorities are protected at the expense ofHindus. Christians do almost everything to convince the gullible Hindus byadopting Hindu customs and traditions. In recent days, Jesus Christ as a yogi isintroduced as one of the main conversion ploys in the country. Many Christiansin the USA criticize Yoga and oppose it and ask the Christians not to do anyyoga.  They call yoga a satanic practice. But in India, Christianmissionaries depict Jesus Christ as a Yogi to deceit naive people. If yoga is asatanic practice according to the Bible, then how come Jesus Christ be a yogi?Christian missionaries operate on a very subconscious level.

[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}}
