​​​​​​​For the last 2-3 months many Archakas did not have enough resources to feed their families. Many organizations and individuals have concentrated in honoring the priests and their families. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has decided to honor about 600 Archaka (Priest) families in Vijayawada, Guntur, Anantapur,  Visakhapatnam, Rajahmundry, East Godavari District and in Hyderabad. Because of  the fear of spreading Coronavirus, many Hindu Temples are closed. Now, many Archakas/Pujaris / Hindu Temple’s priests are having a hard time meeting their basic needs. Many of them do not have any salaries either from the government or the private Temples. Most of them do not have enough savings to pay their rent and electricity.

[GHHF] Annadanam is being planned in Three Locations – Guntur, Anantapur and Visakhapatnam Ghar Waapasi is being PAUSED for limited Time.

As per Vedas, “Annadanam Samam Danam Trilokeshu Na Vidhathe” meaning Annadanam is supreme and it cannot be compared to any other charity. Our tradition pronounces that one who does annadanam attains Punya Loka (heaven). In fact, the whole creation depends on food. Taittireya Upanishad says “Annam vai Pranaha”, that means All life force comes from food. In Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna declares, “Annad bhavanti bhutani.” That means all beings evolved from food. Our scriptures talk about “Daridra Narayana” - God dwells in the poor person. “Gaja turaga Sahasram Gokulam koti danam Kanaka Rajatha patram Methini sagarantham Upaya kula vishuttam Koti kanya pradanam Nahi nahi bahu danam Annadanam samanam” MEANING: Donating 1000 elephants & horses, donating 10 million cows, donating any number of vessels of silver and gold, donating the entire land till sea, offering the entire services of the clan, helping in the marriage of 10 million women, all this is never ever equal to Annadanam, the feeding of hungry and needy. Annadanam, offering food to the needy and the visiting guests in many Ashrams, is a common practice for thousands of years. More importance is given to providing meals to the people who are hungry. Providing meals at many Hindu Temples and Ashrams is an old custom. Our Temples provide Naivedyam to Gods on a regular basis as we believe the presence of Paramatma/God in the installed Deities. Similarly, we believe there is a divinity in all the creatures – humans as wells as non-human. Sharing food is considered the sacred duty in Hindu culture. On almost all the festivals, the organizers provide meals. Thus, annadanam is given the highest importance because of our belief that God lives as Atman in each one of us. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) has decided to provide annadanam near HOSPITALS where many people come to visit their family members. Since the whole country is in a lockdown situation due to Coronavirus, GHHF feels fortunate to participate in Annadna Seva to feed the relatives of the patients admitted in the hospitals. Annadanam will start from May 15 This is one-act where the recipient feels satisfied with what is served. It is impossible to express the feeling of satisfied people when we see their face after the meals.   DONATIONS GHHF is planning to serve meals to about 150 per each location. One day donation would be around $500 per day. Or Donate whatever is practical. PayPal Method: To donate visit our website: savetemples.org. Click on the Donate button, then press the Purpose category, and select the “Annadanam Donation” category. By Check: Or you can send a check payable to: GHHF, 14726 Harmony Lane, Frisco TX 75035. It is tax-deductible. For more information, call Prakasarao V Velagapudi 601-918-711; 1Email: ghhfusaorg@gmail.com.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Brahma Samudram Mandalam in Anantapur District – Went to House to House.

We will Temporarily PAUSE  Ghar Waapasi due to Rampant Corona Virus in Some Locations Annadanam is being planned for the Needy William Dalrymple, The Age of Kali: Indian Travels & Encounters “Hindu civilisation is the only great classical culture to survive intact from the ancient world, and at temples such as Madurai one can still catch glimpses of festivals and practices that were seen by Greek visitors to India long before the rise of ancient Rome. Indeed, it is only when you grasp the astonishing antiquity, and continuity, of Hinduism that you realise quite how miraculous is survival has been.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to welcome four Pracharaks who have committed to work at the ground level and visited three villages to talk about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and how it is different from Christianity. The discussion started with one of the Priests named Sri Gopi Chary whom we know for the last four years. Near Anantapur, about ten kilometers away, GHHF helped build Sri Rama Temple and performed Pranaprathishta. Sri Gopi Chary is very accommodative and forward looking. He came to the Dalit Village performed all pujas, tied Rakshas to all Dalits, gave prasadam and offered theertham irrespective of their caste or status. He became extremely popular in the community.             From April 1st, under the guidance of Sri Gopi Chary, three Pracharaks have 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. Pillalapalli Village             Sri Gopi Chary and his three associates went to Pillalapalli Village in  Brahmasamudram Mandalam and talked about the richness of our culture dating back to ten thousand years or more and how much it was developed and how so many intellectuals and famous people applauded the depth of our culture. They visited Christian families one at a time, sat in their house and explained the reasons for reconversion. They were inspired by Sri Gopi Chary’s assessment and convinced to get converted. He also explained how Christians trap Hindus when they are either in distress or in financial hardships. In fact, these people had their own experiences of being exploited by them.                    As Dalrymple said that the only classical culture that was not uprooted by other religions is Hindu culture – traditions, norms, ethics, talents, festivals and practices developed over so many centuries.  He says it was a miracle that Hindu culture survived even after so many centuries of Christian and Muslim onslaught.  He even said  “when I arrived (India), it was one of those moments in life when everything changes. Thirty years later, I’m still here. A constantly changing kaleidoscope of things has kept me attached, and a whole variety of careers have been facilitated by being here.” 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 8 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) Dollar a Day: On can select this option by pledging a dollar a day in support of Ghar Waapasi efforts 3) 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 Pakala Mandalam near Tirupati – 20 Families Returned to Hinduism

George Bernard Shaw The Indian way of life provides the vision of the natural, real way of life. We veil ourselves with unnatural masks. On the face of India are the tender expressions which carry the mark of the Creators hand. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Ramayya Gari Palli Village in Pakala Mandalam. Mandalam and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Our Associates K. Reddappa and K. Subbanna have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in various villages and Mandalas in Chittoor District. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. They were able to convince 20 families to return to Hinduism. They were honored with Upper garment for men and Blouse pieces for women along with God’s pictures, the Hanuman flag, and other items. As Bernard Shaw mentioned that India culture is natural, and Hinduism is a wat of life. Hinduism is more than a religion. It is a culture close to the nature. It is grounded to the natural way of life. There is no pretext, no deception and no masking of the expressions. It is called Sanatana Dharma – which means eternal faith evolved oven many centuries. There is no founder to enforce his will on the people. They have more freedom to express and live without  fear and force. Jesus is the founder of Christianity and the followers have no freedom to ask any questions if the Bible is wrong or contradictory. India was a cheerful country and lived their life spiritually and humanely.  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 11 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) Dollar a Day: On can select this option by pledging a dollar a day in support of Ghar Waapasi efforts 3) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi Netaji Nagar in Guntur City – Welcomed 45 Families to Hinduism.

ROBERT OPPENHEIMER (THEORETICAL PHYSICIST) "Access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century may claim over all previous centuries. The general notions about human understanding, which are illustrated by discoveries in atomic physics are not in the nature of things wholly unfamiliar, wholly unheard of or new. In 'Hindu' thought they have a more considerable and central place. What we shall find [in modern physics] is an exemplification, an encouragement, and a refinement of old wisdom." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) is incredibly happy to organize the Ghar Waapasi program in Netaji Nagar 39th division in Guntur City.  About 45 families who were going to Church came back to the Hindu fold.  Even though Corona Virus was rampant they were able to go to their houses individually, practiced all the Covid regulations, and welcomed them one at a time.  Our Associate Srinivas and his friends came to know that many Hindu women were converted a few years ago and they are looking for a way out. He spent a lot of time talking to them and was able to convince these families to return to Sanatana Dharma. Some of them agreed.                Since we Hindus do not approach them to visit the Temples or ask them to practice Dharma, the Christian Missionaries had all the opportunity to talk to them and denounce the Hindu way of life and Hindu Gods and were successful in converting many of these people. Since some of them were converted through deception and anti-Hindu statements, slowly about 45 families got re-converted to Hinduism. Oppenheimer was very much interested in Vedas and Bhagavad Gita. During World War II, under the leadership of Oppenheimer US government started the Manhattan Project which produced the first nuclear weapon. He is recognized as the “father of the atomic bomb.”  Developing the atomic bomb was considered his dharma  - duty as described in Bhagavad Gita. “We knew the world would not be the same,” Oppenheimer remembered in 1965. “A few people laughed; a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'” Many priests or pastors are cheats. Their livelihood depends on the number of conversions. They go to any extent to lie, cheat, and falsify our Hindu scriptures. It is a terrible religion. In fact, the Bible vividly described the atrocities, killings, dashing the children against the wall, and stoning to death if you disobey. Even if you have performed your duty as per your customs, the Bible encourages wiping out the whole nation. They were persecuted and tortured unto death. Bible is full of fabrications, contradictions, revengeful and atrocious. GHHF is committed to engaging in Ghar Waapasi by giving utmost importance to welcome the converted Christians back to Hindus who may have drifted away for different reasons without full comprehension. This is the only way to bring back those who took the wrong path for different reasons. WE NEED YOUR HELP We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more people who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi. We have employed 8 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) Dollar a Day: On can select this option by pledging a dollar a day in support of Ghar Waapasi efforts 3) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year.

Matru Devo Bhava – Mother is God; Let us remember her on Mother’s Day

Mother Matrupanchakam by Adi Shankara Today being Mothers’ day in USA, (May 9, 2021) we thought it appropriate to reminisce the great sacrifices mothers make. It is more fitting to remember Matrupanchakam (five hymns) composed by Adi Sankara. At very young age Sankaracharya wanted to take up Sanyasa which was opposed by his mother. Finally, she agreed with a condition that he would be present at her death bed and perform all the kriyas. He came back to be with his mother when he realized through his intuitive powers that her days were numbered. He performed her funeral ceremonies. It was at that time Sankaracharya composed Matrupanchakam explaining the sacrifices mothers do for their children. 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. aasthaam tavaddeyam prasoothi samaye durvara soola vyadha, nairuchyam thanu soshanam malamayee sayya cha samvatsaree, ekasyapi na garbha bara bharana klesasya yasya kshmo dhathum, nishkruthi munnathopi thanaya tasya janyai nama. Oh mother mine, With clenched teeth bore thou the excruciating pain, When I was born to you, Shared thou the bed made dirty by me for an year, And thine body became thin and painful, During those nine months that you bore me, For all these in return, Oh mother dearest, I can never compensate, Even by my becoming great. gurukulamupasruthya swapnakaale thu drushtwa, yathi samuchitha vesham praarudho maam twamuchai gurukulamadha sarva prarudathe samaksham sapadhi charanayosthe mathurasthu pranaama. Clad in a dress of a sanyasin, You saw me in my teacher’s school, In your dream and wept, And rushed thither, Smothered, embraced and fondled me, Oh mother mine, And all the teachers and students wept with you dear, What could I do, Except falling at your feet, And offering my salutations. ambethi thathethi shivethi tasmin, prasoothikale yadavocha uchai, krishnethi govinda hare mukunde tyaho, janye rachito ayamanjali. Oh mother mine, Crying thou shouted in pain, During thine hard labour, “Oh mother, Oh father, Oh God Shiva, Oh Lord Krishna, Oh Lord of all, Govinda, Oh Hari and Oh God Mukunda,” But in return, Oh my mother dearest. I can give you but humble prostrations. na dattam mathasthe marana samaye thoyamapi vaa, swadhaa vaa no dheyaa maranadivase sraadha vidhina na japtho mathasthe marana samaye tharaka manu, akale samprapthe mayi kuru dhayaam matharathulaam. Neither did I give you water at thine time of death, Neither did I offer oblations to thee to help thine journey of death, And neither did I chant the name of Rama in thine ear, Oh Mother supreme, pardon me for these lapses with compassion, For I have arrived here late to attend to those. mukthaa manisthvam, nayanam mamethi, rajethi jeevethi chiram sthutha thwam, ithyuktha vathya vaachi mathaa, dadamyaham thandulamesh shulkam. Long live, Oh, pearl mine, Oh jewel mine, Oh my dearest eyes, Oh mine prince dearest, And oh my soul of soul, Sang thou to me, But in return of that all, Oh my mother dearest. I give you but dry rice in your mouth.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi - Welcomed 24 Families back to Hinduism in Telangana

Will Durant  (1885 - 1981) American historian and philosopher; Author of THE CASE FOR INDIA India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village / community, of self-government and democracy." Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association with Nitya Satyam has been organizing Ghar Waapasi in the Telangana area. Lakshmi Nivas and his volunteers went to many villages and talked about the richness of our culture knowing that they became Christians not because of the message of the Bible but because of their financial circumstances, health-related issues, deceptive interpretation of Hindu scriptures and demeaning the multiplicity of Gods and Goddesses. Lakshmi Nivas and his associates visited Vikarabad District; and 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 they created fear in them. He talked about the difference between Bhagavad Gita and Bible. He stated that Christianity from the beginning forced their sheep to sacrifice their freedom, pride, and self-confidence. They gather and train their followers to be aggressive, deceptive and agitators to disrupt the normality of the country they go and start converting with many false promises. Two Christian missionaries went to hospitals where COVID patients are admitted for treatment and tried to convert them to Christianity promising the Covid will be cured by Jesus if they get converted.                Will Durant studied Hinduism for decades and concluded that India was the motherland of all races and Sanskrit is the mother of all European languages. Durant says that self-government and democratic principles are the very heart of India/Hinduism. He advised that all the students should study Hinduism and get acquainted with India. He even acknowledged that “She (India) She had great engineering works. She had great merchants, great businessmen, great bankers and financiers. Not only was she the greatest ship-building nation, but she had great commerce and trade by land and sea. Such was the India which British found when they came.” The Christian missionaries come prepared to even engage in violence and threaten the Hindus to accept Christianity. Christianity practiced in India is an insult to humanity. It is the most violent, ridiculous, and bloody religion ever infected the earth. Even the Christians across the globe admit the missionary wickedness and vicious methods they use to convert the natives into Christianity. They cut your throat and or force the people to accept their customs and opinions. They make the converts insult Hindu Gods by stepping on them or spitting on them. Laxmi Nivas and his Associates went to many houses talked to them individually, distributed the flyers, and met Hindus who were converted to Christianity. Many of them are receptive to hear what we are trying to say and started reading about what is happening in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. GHHF has prepared a 4-page document talking about the rights of Hindus to face the ruthless Christian missionaries and also showing some of the ex-Christians’ experience of being a Christian. 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 8 people so far.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur District – Welcomed one Vysya and few Dalits to Hinduism.

Count Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949) was a Belgian writer of poetry "Is it possible to find, in our human annals, words more majestic, more full of solemn anguish, more august in tone, more devout, more terrible? Where, from the depths of an agnosticism, which thousands of years have augmented, can we point to a wider horizon? At the very outset, it surpasses all that has been said, and goes farther than we shall even dare to go. No spectacle could be more absorbing than this struggle of our forefathers of five to ten thousand years ago with the Unknowable, the unknowable nature of the causeless Cause of all Causes. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to welcome four Pracharaks who have committed to work at the ground level and visited three villages to talk about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and how it is different from Christianity. The discussion started with one of the Priests named Sri Gopi Chary whom we know for the last four years. Near Anantapur, about ten kilometers away, GHHF helped build Sri Rama Temple and performed Pranaprathishta. Sri Gopi Chary is very accommodating and forward-looking.

Kalyandurgha Village             Sri Gopi Chary and his three associates met in Bhavani Shankar Temple in Kota Street one Vysya Family and few Dalits were welcomed back into Hinduism. Our Pracharaks talked about the richness of our culture dating back to ten thousand years or more and how much I was developed and how so many intellectuals and famous people applauded the depth of our culture. They were inspired by Sri Gopi Chary’s assessment and convinced to get converted. He also explained how Christians trap Hindus when they are either in distress or in financial hardships. In fact, these people had their own experiences of being exploited by them. Vysya member said he was baptized by the Pastor who asked him to remove his sacred thread (Jandhyam).  He agreed to return to Hinduism and got the Jandhyam ceremony performed by our Sri Gopi Chary. These families participated in the Shudhi program whereby they returned to Hindu Dharma.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Chandragiri Mandalam near Tirupati – Welcomed 18 Families to Hinduism

Dr. A L Basham, the author of “The Wonder That Was India.” India was a cheerful land, whose people, each finding a niche in a complex and slowly evolving social system, reached a higher level of kindliness and gentleness in their mutual relations than any other nation of antiquity. For this, as well as for her great achievements in religion, literature, art, science and mathematics, one European student at least would record his admiration of her ancient culture." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Chinnarama Puram Village in Chandragiri Mandalam. Mandalam and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Our Associates K. Reddappa and K. Subbanna have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in various villages and Mandalas in Chittoor District. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. They were able to convince 18 families to return to Hinduism. They were honored with Upper garment for men and Blouse pieces for women along with God’s pictures, the Hanuman flag, and other items. As A L Basham said that India was a cheerful country and lived its life spiritually and humanely. He said India is the only country where no slavery system existed. India concentrated on non-violence, vairagya (renunciation) masculinity – the superiority of masculinity over femininity. Her achievements were unmatched in literature, science, art, mathematics, and religion. He suggested that Western students would benefit by knowing her culture. Women are given a high pedestal in society. The saying Matru Devo Bhava speaks to the boundless and all-encompassing, loving power of the mother. Rig Veda says “O Mothers! Purify us with your compassion, understanding, and enlightenment. The women cleanse us all from all our sins, corruption, and defects. We come out firm, pure and noble from their blessed company.” This is contrary to the respect given in the West. Similarly,  India has always tirelessly worked toward establishing the country emphasizing the spiritual aspect of humanity rather than highlighting the extension of the empires with the sword.  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 8 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) Dollar a Day: On can select this option by pledging a dollar a day in support of Ghar Waapasi efforts 3) 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}}
