[GHHF] Shri P V R Narasimha Rao Program was a great success organized in Dallas Texas; Imparted the importance of Homa and demonstrated the conduct of Homa.

 Global Hindu Heritage Foundation was started in 2006 to preserve, protect, and promote Hindu Temples, Hindu Institutions, Hindu customs and traditions and Dharmic knowledge. Pursuant to our mission, we have been working at the ground level to make Hindus, Hindus first; started several Bala Samskar Kendras to impart the richness of our Hinduism, preserve our Temple culture and balance the ecological system.   GHHF has invited Shri P.V.R Narasimha Rao to talk about the importance of Homa rituals, historical significance, and practical demonstration of conducting Homa. He is a world-famous Vedic astrologer, a Fire Yogi and a Sanskrit Scholar. He has a B.Tech. degree from IIT, Madras and a master’s degree from Rice University, Houston, USA and works near Boston as a senior engineering manager at a top semiconductor firm. Making rituals, especially fire rituals, easily accessible to everyone interested in spiritual progress is his mission. It was well attended. More than 350 people attended and listened attentively and submitted several questions. A few of them were answered by him.  For decades, it is his mission to propagate the importance of Conducting Homas and he simplified the ritual where almost any interested person can perform it by himself not only for his spiritual, physical, and health benefits, but also for Loka Kalyanam (human welfare).  Following a lengthy lecture on the importance of Homa, he performed homa himself on the stage to demonstrate as to how to perform Homa, as he was doing homa, he mentioned about whose God we need to do homa. Is it one Goda or can we do for multiple gods. What Homa Can do for us? Homa activates the internal fire by resonance and burns one’s conditioning. Depending on the density of conditioning, it can empower one’s free will, give calmness and clarity, speed up spiritual progress, or even give experience of God. He suggested that one should not eat anything in the one or two hours before homa. One should also stick to vegetarian food. Eating meat or eating just before a homa will make the digestive fire burn strongly and this will limit the amount of energy left for the internal fire needed for burning conditioning. During homa, one should visualize to the best of one’s ability that God is in fire and receiving one’s offerings and removing one’s conditioning. After the homa is done, a local maximum in one’s level of purity is created. One can sit still with a straight back and closed eyes and meditate for a while. There are no caste restrictions. Anybody can perform and reap the benefits of doing Homa. Brahmarshi Vishwaamitra was born as a kshatriya but became a brahmana. Maharshi Valmiki was a Shudra who became a brahmana. There are many such examples. If one does homa on a regular basis for spiritual progress and for dharmic material results that enable one’s spiritual progress, then one will eventually become a brahmana. Is Guru Needed: If one receives a mantra or a procedure from the mouth of a master, it is analogous to a millionaire opening a bank account in his son’s name with a high starting balance. If one does not receive a mantra or a procedure from the mouth of a master, it is analogous to starting off with a zero-bank balance. While it is useful to start off with a positive balance. Can women do Homa? There is no restriction. Men and women can perform Homas. The need to purify one’s body is identical. There is a reference in Ramayana where Kausalya was doing homa for the welfare of her son Rama after she came to know of her son’s coronation.   One can just start a fire, imagining that it is sacred, and that god is in it, and meditate in front of it. One should start with Maha Ganapathi who helps us avoid and overcome obstacles in our lives. You can also do offerings to multiple Gods. Depending on one’s tome they can offer to either one God or multiple gods. He also suggested going to his website and downloading all the manuals free of cost and start doing homa.  Donations are appreciated; By Zelle: ghhfusaorg@gmail.com PayPal: savetemples.org By Check: You can also send a check payable to GHHF,14726 Harmony Lane, Frisco, TX 75035.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation was committed to preserving and protecting Sanatana Dharma. As part of our mission, we have renovated about 40 Grama Devatas and dis Prana Pratishta to six Temples. Many of the villagers do not have the resources to renovate their Grama Devatas, although they attend theTemples and conduct celebrations as per their customs.  As many of you are aware, about 41 days ago, GHHF conducted Prana Pratishta to Maremma Temple in Kalyandurg Mandal center in NTR Colony.

[GHHF] S3 Foundation in Memphis organized a powerful Sri Chakra Deepotsavam under the guidance of Sri Vasudevananda Swamiji.

 S3 Foundation is known for maintaining a huge Gaushala in Memphis for more than ten years. It is one of a kind. It maintains over 250 cows and bulls on a sprawling 200 acres of land. It also conducts daily home for the benefit of humanity and purification of the environment. They are conducting Sri Chakra Deepotsavam under the guidance of Sri Vasudevananda Swamiji who is visiting Gaushala for five days. Devi has various forms, each having their own yantra, but the Sri Chakra itself represents all of the various forms of Devi in one yantra.  Therefore, the devotee of Mother can worship the Sri Chakra rather than worship a particular yantra for each of Her forms.  Sri Lalitha Trishati describes Sri Chakra as follows: “From the single point, three angles, and eight other triangles, followed by ten triangles within and without, then fourteen angles; there are eight petals of a lotus, again followed by sixteen. These support three circles, three demarcations of existence, with four doors.  This is known as the Sri Chakra, the expression of the highest divinity.” On Saturday, they arranged 1008 clay diyas with 365 wicks in each diya and placed them on the Sri Chara diagram beautifully drawn in the Hall. Amma gave the meaning and significance of Sri Chakra Depostsavam. They performed pujas in four directions – Sri Lakshmi, Sri Durga, Sri Saraswati, and Sri Nandiswara. Nandiswara is credited with revealing the greatness and power of Lord Shiva and Durgamata. Since Sri Chakra is known as the personification of Durgmata, by worshipping her, her two sons Sri Ganapati and Sri Karthikeya will protect all of us. Dri Ganesha will remove all the impediments and Sri Karthikeya as Commander in Chief will guide us to victory. More than 250 people attended the function, had the opportunity to light the diyas, and enjoyed the beautiful sight of witnessing the lighting of 1008 divas that were decorated with these diyas. Everybody did pradakshana to Sri Chakra three times.  {{album_1127}}

GHHF Bala Samskar Kendras – Students learned about the importance of Saraswati Puja;  the new School year Commences.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has started about 200 schools to teach about Sanatana Dharma, the richness about our customs and traditions, various Pujas and their significance, the sacrifices of our great heros, the depth and width of our ancient Rishi’s knowledge, and the need to transmit the knowledge to the next generation. Our teaches have already started teaching about the importance of Saraswati puja. Goddess Saraswati is worshipped to invoke the blessings of the deity, who is the Goddess of culture, music art and education. The significance of Saraswati Puja is that it is a spring festival, and it marks the beginning of spring. The yellow color forms an integral part of the festival. Yellow coloured flowers are offered to the deity, such as Marigold. The food prepared are also yellow in color, such as kesariya bhaat or sweet saffron rice, kesariya ladoo or halwa or saffron pudding, khichdi or a mixture of yellow pulses with rice and so on. Young girls drape themselves in yellow-colored sarees or basanti coloured saree. Even the cloth which covers the stool on which the deity is placed is yellow in color. Yellow forms the theme color of this festival because mustard flowers during this season, spring are in full bloom everywhere and this festival represents the Spring season. Not only is this festival celebrated with a lot of zeal and fervor in the states of Orissa, Bihar and West Bengal, but in Punjab the Sikh community celebrates this festival with a lot of pomp in Gurdwara and the musicians perform basant raga. In many parts of Punjab, fairs are held on this day. Guru Gobind Singh was married on this day and hence it is celebrated by the Sikh community. This day is celebrated by flying kite in Firozpur. The significance of Saraswati Puja is that, Saraswati, being the Goddess of learning, on the day of Saraswati Puja young children are made to write alphabets. This is a common practice in West Bengal and it is known as “Hathe khori”. It is a popular belief that if a young child writes in front of the Goddess, he will be blessed by the deity and will do very well in his education in future.
