Kodali Nani’s deranged rants against Hindu Gods; Jagan Mohan Reddy, with no faith and reverence to Lord Venkateswara, entered Balaji Temple.

Kodali Nani’s statements on the hand breaking of Sri Hanumanji, missing silver lions from Kanaka Durga Temple and burning of Radham in Antarvedi created an uproar among Hindus and all over the State. His statements are amount to a mad dog barking at his boss who feed him. Let us see what he said that made Hindus so upset and feel hurtful. “If the arm is broken to Anjaneya Swamy, nothing is going to happen him. If the Temple loses the silver murthies,  with that money no buildings or palaces can be built. To listen to video rebuke please click on link: https://youtu.be/R0wF8IbsMVw If  one crore worth of  Radham is burned in Antarvedi, the government can get it built, Temple would not lose anything.”  He is indirectly suggesting that people can go and destroy the Temples, break the Murthies, burn the Radhams because Government will build them. This is mentally deranged and damaged person’s talk, not a person of reasonable thinking, civility, and congeniality . As Raghurama Krishna Raju said that, “It is not the chariot that was burnt in Antarvedi, the sentiments of Hindus have been burnt to cinders. It is not the idols of Hindu deities that were broken, it is in fact the emotional feelings of Hindus that were shattered to pieces,” Similarly many political parties have also condemned his statements. All this discussion started with the declaration by TTD Chairman Sri Subba Reddy that Non-Hindus do not have to declare their faith and do not have to say that they respect the presiding deity in the Temple. This is traditionof declaration is going on for decades and it must be respected.  Sri Subba Reddy, an uncle of Christian Chief Minister, decided to cancel the declaration indicating that a non-Hindu does not have to declare his religion and basically saying that they do not have to have faith in Lord Venkateswara. He abandoned the tradition just like that to make room for his nephew. Even though he declared and  defended himself as a Hindu when he was appointed,  we all know that he cannot enforce any of the Hindu customs without Chief Ministers permission. He is here to tamper with the sanctity of TTD. Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy put him as a smokescreen for his faith to rub it on TTD. Sri Subba Reddy’s announcement thata non-Hindu do not have to declare his faith is aimed at insulting the sentiments of Hindus, hurting the feelings, defile the sanctity of the Temples and offending the presiding deity – Sri Venkateswara – who is a living entity. For Christians, and for Jagan Mohan Reddy, Lord Venkateswara is stone. Subba Reddy agreed with him and lifted the Declaration. His only interest in visiting the Temples is to show his fellow Christians that not only that  he is capable of insulting the Hindu faith and has power to cancel the Declaration before he went to TTD on September 23.              Chief Minister is supposed to have signed  the declaration which states that “I have faith in Lord ………………. (Name of the presiding deity) and reverence to Him/Her and to His/Her worship. I may be permitted to enter the temples and have darshan of the Lord.”  Without signing the declaration, Chief Minister was allowed to enter the temple.  He rebuked and insulted the declaration which requires  non-Hindu visitors to mention their religious identity. There is no other reason for him not to sign except to insult the Hindu customs, hurt the Hindu sentiments, defile the sacredness of the Temples and tamper with the age old traditions.             When Late Former President of India, Abdul Kalam visited TTD , he requested the book and signed it before he entered the Temple. That shows his greatness, humility, respect for tradition,  and the tallest stature in the country. On the part of Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy, it is absurd, ridiculous to change the traditions for personal aggrandizement, personal ego, and selfish motive. Willfully, intentionally, and deliberately  rebuked the Hindus, insulted the tradition, and became a role model for all his fellow Christians who despise Hindus. It shows that he has no faith in Lord Venkateswara. He has no respect in Hindu worship. Then why did he go to TTD.? This is a golden opportunity for him to show his support to the rantings of his Minister Kodali Nani and also to show how to insult the Hindus and how to break the rules.              When Kodali Nani says that why should you declare your faith to enter TTD when you do not do it when you go to church and mosque. It may be big shock for  him to know that Hindus cannot go to Mecca even if one wants to visit and see. His statement is a testimony for his meanness, ignorance, mental capacity to understand the richness of Hinduism. He seems to have blind faith in his Chief Minister, not his own religion. Now the question is Can a Hindu do the hajj? No. Even the Christians who believe in God of Abraham are not allowed to perform the hajj. Indeed, the government of Saudi Arabia forbids all non-Muslims from entering the holy city of Mecca at all. The Saudi government takes this very seriously, so the odds that a non-Muslim would be able to enter Mecca are extremely small. Would Kodali Nani challenge the Muslims and ask them why other religious people cannot enter even Mecca City itself?  Does he have the courage? He will not. Because he knows the heads will roll over. Or has he become a mouthpiece for Christians and Muslims and following their command in support of breaking Hindu Murthies. Deuteronomy 12:3 Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places. Exodus 23:24 Do not bow down before their gods or worship them or follow their practices. You must demolish them and break their sacred stones to pieces Now we can see why Kodali Nani is fuming like a mad man. He is steeped into this ideology of terror and horror, breaking of Idols.Calling Hindu Gods as mere stones that can be replaced is unpardonable sin. It is only to please his Christian Chief Minister; he is getting drenched into this anti-Hindu Statements. It is also possible that he has become a Christian and to please them and to prove his Christian credentials, he is making those abusive statements. In fact,  he wears neckless with cross around his neck. Wearing Rudraksha mala and applying Tilak on his forehead is only to conceal his true belief in Christianity. Compare.      When Nani compares with Church and Mosques with Hinduism, does he not know that only Hindu Temples are under government control but not Churches and Mosques.? Why does he not ask the government to take over the Mosques and Churches like the way they have done with Hindu Temples.             Declaration is required because our Gods  are living Gods – they are infused with life. That is the reason our Temples are open every day and offered specially cooked food as Prasadam.             Anybody who attacks the Temples and break the Deities and advocates and condones this kind of activities is considered as a CRIMINAL.             Kodali Nani should be arrested and put him in Jail for condoning the breaking of the arms and heads of Hindu Gods.             Our Temples are sacred places, but the Churches and mosques are not sacred places of worship. They are only congregation places. There is no living god for worship in these mosques and Churches.             If Kodali Nani does not know the difference between Hinduism and other religions, he shut up and close his mouth. He should tie his tongue. He should not project himself as a stupid and a fool. Hindu God has Legal Rights             As per the Supreme Court, the Deity in Hindu Temple is a legal entity, hence he has legal rights. These rights are expressed by the Priests, hereditary heirs, and the management. Just like the institutions interests are represented by the management, Hindu Temples interests are represented by the managements. That the temple deity, Lord Venkateswara or any Hindu Deity in the Temple is a legal person and as such is entitled to the same fundamental rights of the Constitution as any other Indian person. The politicians have no right to change the rules to their whims and fancies to please the other religions.             Since Kodali Nani has insulted the living Hindu Gods , he should be arrested forth and charge him for making insulting Hindu Gods and hurting the sentiments.             TTD should pass a law prohibiting non-Hindu Chief Ministers to participate in any Hindu Temple festivals. In fact, there is no law requiring the Chief Minister to offer Silk Saree to Lord Venkateswara

TTD Should initiate GHAR WAAPASI – Part 2

In this part, the author examines how Hindu Customs are adopted to deceive Hindu Community to convert it to Christianity By Prakasarao Velagapudi - September 22, 2020 This is part 2 of the letter that was sent on August 27, 2020, to TTD Board Chairman and other officials to discuss and respond. Part 1 can be accessed here. Let us examine some of the Hindu Customs Christians have adopted/digested to deceive Hindu Community to convert it to Christianity: The huge sums of money collected by Christian missionaries from their congregations at the world level are used to create opportunities to pull financially disadvantaged Hindus into conversion – by offering education, jobs, medical treatment, and other favours in exchange. Start Medical Colleges and get a percentage of quota to admit the students at their discretion. People are admitted based on quota when they get converted to Christianity. Build first-class Medical Hospitals and convert Hindus who are financially weak. They charge twice the amount for Hindus for similar treatment. They reduce the amount if they get converted. The naïve Hindus are duped with “miracle boxes” in churches, where the villagers’ mail their requests for small favours and a few weeks later “miraculously fulfilled.” Many Christian nurses in the hospitals entice the patients by saying that their disease will be cured if they get converted and pray for Jesus. To demonstrate the “superiority” of Jesus over the Hindu “false gods”, they prepare stone Vigrahas for Hindu Gods and wooden Vigrahas for Jesus. Missionaries challenge the villagers to see which one of the two “gods” will be able to float in water. Wooden Vigraha floats and stone Vigrahas sink in the water. Every Sunday they attract gullible Hindus by serving Meat Biryani and offering an unlimited amount of alcohol for them to drink with a mission to convince them to believe in Jesus. In Tirupati at S V Arts College, Evangelist literature was distributed to students in the college campus most likely with the support of a Christian Principle. The students of the hostel are specially targeted for this soul harvest. Evangelical books and other literature arrived in a postal package and were addressed to each student by his name, and they were delivered to his room in the hostel. The students say that such a distribution of books has happened many times over. The Roman Catholic Church came out with the most outrageous ‘New Community Bible’ christened as the “Indian Bible,” which included sacred verses from the Itihasas, Gita, Vedas, and Upanishads. This Hybrid Bible depicted Virgin Mary barefoot, wearing a sari, sporting a Bindi on her forehead, and holding a baby Ganesh. Some Churches also have statues of Jesus in ‘meditating’ posture, Jesus sitting cross-legged on a lotus with ‘Abaya Hastha Mudra,’ Jesus emerging after a purification bath in the Ganges and they even claim that yoga and meditation are not connected to Hinduism and that they are universal, common to all religions. The Ashtottara Namas and Sahasra Namas (108 and 1008 names) have also been prepared for performing ‘Archana’ on Jesus, and ‘Aarti’ is also being performed. A letter dated November 22, 1994, from the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, explains the custom and its role in Indian society: “Indian Catholics . . . use ‘Aarti’ when a child returns home after receiving First Holy Communion and when their respective families receive a newly married couple. Nowadays, ‘Aarti’ is often performed to greet the principal celebrant at an important liturgical event. On such occasions, ‘Aarti’ is usually offered by a Catholic married lady and certainly not by a ‘priestess of Shiva’ as has been alleged.” They are building churches just like traditional Hindu Temples and installing CROSS on the top instead of Kalashas. The Hindu style of architecture, construction, layout, and interior designs are being followed. They have installed Jesus in a Charioteer giving blessings like Lord Krishna in a Chariot giving Upadesha to Arjun. They even built a Church exactly like a Hindu Temples with Raja Gopuram and different shrines inside the Temple for Bal Jesus, Mary, and Jesus. Several Churches have started installing “Dwajasthambam” in the front yard, like Hindu Temples. Many of the Christian Ministers are wearing saffron clothes like Hindu Gurus lecturing on Vedas, Upanishads, and other scriptures by saying that these came from the Bible. Like ‘Giri valam’ (Circumambulation of Hill Temples) practised at Tiruvannamalai every Purnima Day (Full Moon Day), they started circumambulation around Prayer Houses on various hillocks. An example is a Church on the hillock at Acharapakkam where they practice Pradakshina. Many Christian festivals are celebrated like the festivals of the local Hindu people. Diwali, Onam, Ayudha Puja, and Pongal are celebrated to make Hindus identify with Christianity. Many Christians are trying to “Christianize” traditional classical dances such as Bharata Natyam and Kuchipudi dances depicting the story of Jesus to make it more palatable to Indian Christian audiences and to attract innocent Hindus. In Vijayawada, Mary Matha Idol was installed on a huge hill. Some of the devotees would stay here for the three days and sleep on the premises of the church as a ritual. Devotees also offer hair to the Mother at the tonsuring centre and offered coconuts, flowers, and garlands. They offer Arthi to Mother Mary similar to Hindu worship. The priests (Pastors) performed ‘Samiti Divya Bali pooja.’ The devotees performed ‘Divyastha Prasada Aradhana’ and ‘swastata prarthanas.’ They have adopted Carnatic music singing the songs on Jesus, Mary, and Christianity. They attracted or lured some of the Carnatic Musicians to sing only to attract Hindus who like Carnatic music. They are even distributing “prohibited medicines and drugs” and prompting conversions while users were under the influence. Many songs are composed on Jesus imitating Hindu Gods’ songs and tunes – Ayyappa, Lord Shiva, Harti, etc. They have even come out with an outrageous “New Community Bible” christened as the Indian Bible. They have adopted these deceptive practices only to convert Hindus into Christianity. They have no backing from the Bible. It cannot satisfy the intellectual curiosity of the people. They cannot openly discuss the content of the Bible. It is full of killings, tortures, incest, sexual abuse, divisions, hatred, paedophilia, rape, and condemnation. It is worth remembering the words of the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson: “Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one-half the world fools and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.” Mahatma Gandhi stated in 1935 that “If I had power and could legislate, the first thing I would ban is conversions.“ Deceptive practices of Christian Missionaries “Missionaries are perfect nuisances and leave every place worse than they found it.” Charles Dickens (18121870). Swami Dayananda Saraswati repeatedly mentioned that “Religious conversion by missionary activity remains an act of violence. It is an act of violence because it hurts deeply, not only the other members of the family of the converted but the entire community that comes to know of it.” Christianity is an aggressive religion intent on imposing their faith even at the expense of wiping out civilizations one by one. India is their target and they intend to destroy it at any cost. The end justifies the means. In the name of service, they enter the villages and convert the Hindus overnight with allurement, deception, and aggression. TTD should take up these deceptive practices into account when planning the Ghar Waapasi program. HDPP should develop a number of booklets countering these deceptive practices and challenge them as to the intentions of inculcating or adopting Hindu traditions and customs and building Churches. You should challenge the Christian to show where in the Bible they can find these practices they are following. For example, where do they have Jesus Sahasranama in the Bible, where do they find Jesus giving upadesha standing in the Chariot, where do they find Carnatic dances and music in the Bible, and so on. In addition to allurement, taking advantage of sick people, providing false information in the application of jobs to work in Hindu Temples, they have shamelessly resorted to adopting Hindu customs to woo the innocent, illiterate and vulnerable Hindus. As B R Haran says, “The Church uses the process of inculturation with an aim to adopt the well-established Hindu cultural practices to confuse, corrupt and change the minds of the gullible masses.” Maria Wirth says I could not believe any longer in its vengeful God who will throw me into eternal hellfire if I go against his commands, like not going to Sunday Mass, and who, in the same breath, is called very loving. Maybe I got a bit too much of Christianity in a Convent boarding school. It did not bind me closer to it but made me sceptical.” “The Church may not kill any longer (it did earlier), but also sees Heathen as inferior and considers it as its duty to convert them all, which causes great damage to society.” (Letter written to Narendra Modi by Maria Wirth) Christianity in India is more aggressive and more backward and regressive than Christianity in Europe or the USA. It seems that they are trying to counter their losses in the West with new converts in India. David Frawley (June 11, 2019-Twitted). Frawley further said, “As long as Christians unleash their missionary warriors against Hindus, Hindus must counter them and expose their wrong beliefs. Christians cannot talk about religious harmony and respect while setting their missionary armies upon the world. Their mentality is not one of honouring the Divine in all, but of promoting a well-funded and determined conversion agenda for one point of view only.” Concerned about the menace of conversion, the breakup of families, moral decay in the community, rampant deceptive practices of the Missionaries, Mahatma Gandhi stated in 1935 that “If I had power and could legislate, the first thing I would ban is conversions.” He further stated that “When the missionary of another religion goes to them, he goes like a vendor of goods. He has no particular spiritual merit that will distinguish him from those to whom he goes. He does, however, possess material goods which he promises to those who will come to his fold.” (Harijan: April 3, 1937). We request you to work toward the passage of the Anti-conversion Bill at the Central government level and the imposition of severe punitive laws for violating the Law. Conclusion HDPP under the aegis of TTD should realize that the Christian missionaries are converting Hindus into Christianity using various deceptive methods on a war footing in and around the Tirupathi area. A number of illegal Churches have come up at the foothills of Tirumala. Extensive conversion is happening in various institutions, hospitals, and on Tirumala itself. GHHF suggests that HDPP should train at least 1000 Dharma Pracharaks by equipping them with adequate knowledge about Hinduism, nature, and deception of Christianity, Christian hatred toward Hindu Gods, Christian condemnation of Hindus to eternal fire, and brutality in the Bible. Enough literature should be prepared to contrast Hinduism and Christianity which would enable the Dharma Pracharaks to present the information intelligently, to counter the false narrative of Hinduism by Christians and expose their deception, lying, brutality, and atrocities. TTD cannot be a mere spectator when many gullible Hindus are being converted in front of their own eyes, when the Christians call Lord Venkateswara as a STONE (Shila) when the Christians working in TTD insult Hindus and Hindu Gods, when the Christian employees in TTD call Sri Venkateswara Prasadam a Saitan food, and when a visiting Pope wants to put a cross across India. It is TTD’s dharma to address these issues by appointing an adequate number of Dharma Pracharaks to the villages where they can contrast the two religions and invite all of them back to their original faith. For various reasons, they have taken the wrong route. It is the responsibility of TTD to bring them home. Initiate Ghar Waapasi immediately and stop the erosion of the Hindu population and welcome them back on track of the dharmic path. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation would be happy to help in this noble cause, if necessary, to welcome Hindus back into Dharmic path. GHHF would appreciate your discussion at the TTD Trust Board meeting on August 28. We request you to respond to our letter about the course of action being taken to preserve the sacredness of Lord Venkateswara. Also, we request you to work toward the passage of the Anti-conversion Bill at the Central government level and the imposition of severe punitive laws for violating the Law. India’s Hindu richness is amply documented and appreciated by countless scholars. Annie Besant says, “Hinduism is the soul of India. Without Hinduism, there can be no India. Without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil into which India’s roots are stuck and if torn she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out of from its roots. Who shall save Hinduism, if not Hindus? If India’s own children do not cling to her faith, who shall guard it? Hindus alone can save India, India and Hinduism are one.”[7] As Hindus appointed to the Trust Board, you have the responsibility to save Hinduism, protect Hindu Dharma, practice Hindu customs, uphold the Hindu way of life and root out adharmic tactics encircling all Hindu Temples in India. You are all Hindus. You have an adequate Budget to propagate Hindu Dharma and encounter deceptive practices of other religions. It is time to look inside, search your soul, implore your heart, and awaken your conscience, it is time to think as a Hindu without any external pressures with no regards for name, fame, wealth, and power. May Lord Venkateswara bless you all with enough courage, pride, fearlessness, strength and confidence to protect Hindu dharma to enrich the human life for the sake of Loka Kalyanam (human welfare).

TTD Should initiate GHAR WAAPASI

In order to protect and promote Hindu Dharma, TTD can initiate GHAR WAAPASI – welcoming back to Hindu Dharma who converted to Christianity for various dubious and questionable reasons. By Prakasarao Velagapudi September 17, 2020 https://www.savetemples.org/post/ttd-should-initiate-ghar-waapasi/733 https://www.pgurus.com/ttd-should-initiate-ghar-waapasi/ TTD should be at the forefront to ensure that dharma is practised, protected, promoted and propagated Global Hindi Heritage Foundation (GHHF) has been communicating with the TTD officials for the last 15 years on various issues. We have met almost all the Executive Officers and Chairmen and talked about the need to protect the interests of Hindus. We met all the Chief Ministers, Endowment Ministers and other officials and submitted our concerns. GHHF is concerned about the dwindling Hindu population even in Tirupati. TTD cannot ignore the rampant conversion going on around Tirupati and the rest of the State. It cannot be a silent spectator to this menace. You cannot be indifferent. The conversion menace has already entered TTD and silently spreading the venom. GHHF expressed these concerns a number of times with no success. In order to protect and promote Hindu Dharma, TTD can initiate GHAR WAAPASI – welcoming back to Hindu Dharma who converted to Christianity for various dubious and questionable reasons. As per the guidelines of Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad (HDPP), TTD should conduct different religious programs not only to inform them about the richness of Hindu dharma but also about the true nature of Christianity whose main objective is to convert Hindus into Christianity in the guise of doing selfless service to Hindu community. The agenda of HDPP is “to preserve, propagate and promote Hindu Dharma as the official dharmic face of TTD by organising different devotional programmes and HDPP conducted various religious programs to bring the Lord closer to his devotees and also to enhance and enrich the spiritual and devotional quotient in TTD activities.” Initiation of Ghar Waapasi is consistent with the agenda of HDPP Converted Christians are requested by their pastors to hide their religion and not to report their converted faith As you are aware that conversion of Hindus is going on for centuries, we all know how many methods, tricks and deceptive techniques Christians use to woo the gullible and desperate people into their fold. We also know how many crores of Rupees they get from foreign countries and how they use those resources. We all know how many churches are built all across India and Andhra Pradesh in particular, without permission from authorities. Even in Tirupati, they built many churches without permission either from the Collector’s office or other authorities. No politician wants to challenge the construction of these churches for their insatiable desire to please these Christians, they even close their eyes when the Christians keep demeaning Hindu Gods and bashing Hinduism. They also refuse to take any steps to stop Christians from occupying the Temple lands and lands of innocent Hindus. As per the 2011 Census, Christians constitute only 1.4 per cent in Andhra Pradesh. Relentless conversion efforts over the last 8 years have yielded a bumper crop. On May 20, 2020, the AP government decided to provide one-time assistance of Rs 5000.00 to reward 29,841 pastors based on about 18 per cent of the Christians population. We can see that the Christian population increased from 1.4 per cent in the 2011 Census to 18 per cent by 2020 Although the Christian population is estimated to be at 18 per cent in Andhra Pradesh, the actual percentage of Christians is likely to be double that number. If we go to Krishna, Guntur, West Godavari, and East Godavari districts, you will see a row of Churches all across the streets. Converted Christians are requested by their pastors to hide their religion and not to report their converted faith. Hindu population in Andhra Pradesh is probably around 60-65 per cent. The government wants us to believe that Hindus are 80 per cent. TTD should be at the forefront to ensure that dharma is practised, protected, promoted and propagated. It is not just enough to make arrangements for the devotees to have darshan of Lord Venkateswara, to provide accommodation, serve annadanam, and offer Prasadam. It is not enough to provide special darshans to VIPs and other dignitaries. It is just not enough to arrange cultural programs and to publish hundreds of books every year. It is not just enough to fund hospitals and educational institutions. TTD should make sure that they address the deceptive practices conducted by other religions to convert Hindus to their faiths. It cannot close its eyes and pretend that Hinduism is not being destroyed, defamed, and defaced. It cannot fail to address the issue when dharma is under attack and when their dharmic people are being duped into believing that Hindu Gods are mere stones and Saitans. TTD cannot plead ignorance because all the news media has been reporting the deception of Christianity through allurement and special privileges. It should challenge any law that prevents Hindus to enjoy the same privileges as other religions. TTD should not be subservient, and a submissive pawn in the hands of the government. Our aim should be to follow Dharmic Principles and uphold the eternal values cherished by Hindus for over 3-4,000 years TTD should actively engage in bringing the ex-Hindus back to Hinduism as a part of Hindu Dharma Prachara Parishad. Prachara means promotion, betterment, and advancement. TTD Board members cannot shut their eyes, plug their ears, and tie their tongues when a large scale conversion of Hindus is being conducted through allurement and other incentive practices. TTD cannot be an island and think that nothing is happening around them. We cannot ignore the fact that Christians are going on war footing to convert as many Hindus as possible. You are all aware of it. TTD should employ a Ghar Waapasi team, train them to be acquainted with the richness, grandeur, and treasures in Sanatana Dharma. We should also train them about the Bible and how it is different from Bhagavad Gita. Our efforts to engage in Ghar Waapasi do not have to be deceptive, alluring, taking advantage of their predicament, using miracle boxes, engaging in miracle cures, and so on. Our aim should be to follow Dharmic Principles and uphold the eternal values cherished by Hindus for over 3,000-4,000 years. Dharma must be practised the way it was in Mahabharata,“ No one should leave the path of dharma on any account – neither by temptation nor by fear nor by greed nor for life. Because pleasure and pain are both transitory, dharma is permanent and follows the soul in all directions.” (Ashvamedha Parva 43:14) In our efforts to engage in Ghar Waapasi, we will follow the principles of dharma, not adharma; truthfulness, not untruth; purity, not impurity; inclusiveness, not exclusiveness; righteousness, not unrighteousness; honesty, not dishonesty; respectful, not disrespectful; tolerance, not intolerance; open-mindedness, not closed-mindedness; accommodative, not preventive; deferential, not arrogant; polite, not impolite; and peaceful, not violent. Christianity condemns not only condemns non-Christians; they also condemn themselves to hell. Ted Turner, the founder of CNN, pleaded Christians to be more tolerant and loving TTD should not turn their blind eye to the reality on the ground. The Christian missionaries are a threat to the very existence of Hinduism. They say Christianity is the only true religion, Jesus is the only saviour and non-Christians are condemned to eternal hell. They adopt or digest Hindu Customs and Traditions only to Convert Hindus. ‘The church is of the opinion that if it accepts Hindu culture and traditions, the process of converting Hindus can be speeded up’. This is precisely why Christian missionaries use Hindu culture, customs, and attire. Every Hindu should be aware of the fact that the Christians mission is to convert India into a Christian nation. To accomplish that goal, they have adopted a large number of Hindu customs, traditions, and rituals. By adopting or digesting Hindu ways of life they ignore their Holy book called Bible. Many of the customs and traditions adopted by Christians have no references or sources from the Bible. Their newly adopted Hindu customs are contrary to the Christian world across the globe. What Indian Christians have adopted over the years is contrary to their own Bible only to fool the Hindus, convince them, deceive them, manipulate them, control them, and convert them. Furthermore, if we look around the world, what the Indian Christians are doing by adopting the Hindu customs are alien to Christians all around the world. They never adopted these deceptive techniques in any part of the world. These deceptive tactics work mainly in the Dalit community because of their illiteracy, ignorance of Hindu knowledge, and discrimination by the Hindu community at large. Christian Pastors are determined to do whatever it takes to convert Hindus to Christianity with no regard for either morals or sanctions from the Bible. Father Joseph Menengis also said “Hindus believe in idol worship. So, to attract them to Christianity, idol worship is performed in churches.” During cross-examination, the priest said that “despite idol worship being prohibited in the Bible, we have idol worship in churches.” Most of the churches have adopted the policy of what is called “inculturation” to attract Hindus to these churches. Some churches are using Hindu methods of worshipping such as offering Arthi, performing Abhishekam, reciting Ashtottaranama and Sahasranama Archana’s to Jesus, and singing bhajans only to convert and modifying the churches to look like Hindu Temples. Some Preachers are dressed like a Hindu saint with long saffron robes to mislead Hindus. The Outlook magazine observed that “Om Namah Jesus could well reverberate inside hundreds of Catholic churches in India very soon if the changing physical face of these places of worship is anything to go by.” A number of shrines for Mary Mata and other saints are springing up. How can that reconcile to the injunctions of the Bible condemning idol worship? For example, in Vijayawada, thousands of pilgrims queued up to visit Mary Matha shrine at Gunadala on the second day of the three-day Gunadala Matha festival on Tuesday…. pilgrims had their heads tonsured on the hillock before offering something. (The Hindu Feb 11, 2009). Christianity not only condemns non-Christians; they also condemn themselves to hell. Ted Turner, the founder of CNN, pleaded Christians to be more tolerant and loving. As he was growing up, he became disenchanted with Christianity due to its hatefulness toward others. He said that as a boy, “he had wanted to be a Christian missionary. But now, he said, he understands that missionaries are the enemies of truth and tolerance.” His religion was intolerant toward the religious freedom of other people, but he thought that they were the only ones who go to heaven. He acknowledged that “It just confused the devil out of me because I said heaven is going to be a mighty empty place with nobody else there. So, I was pretty confused and turned off by it. I said it just can’t be right.” “Instead of all these different gods,” he said, “maybe there’s one God who manifests himself and reveals himself in different ways to different people. How about that? … Basically, the major religions which have survived today don’t have blood sacrifice and they don’t have hatred behind them. Those which have done the best are the ones that are built on love … It is time to get rid of hatred. It is time to get rid of prejudice. It’s time to have love and respect and tolerance for each other.” To be continued. . . . . Note: 1.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi Continues in Telangana. Arranged Local Music program in a village at Night

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is working closely with the Nitya Satyam organization and other volunteers to visit a number of villages and talk to converted Christians. By arranging local programs, they were able to informally about Hindu Dharma and how it is different from Christianity. They are doing two things whenever they go to villages. First, they will talk to the local priests and elderly people about the number of people converted to Christianity and figure out how and whom to approach. Second, they will arrange some local program where many people attend irrespective of religion. That would give us the opportunity to establish communication and slowly talk about the greatness of the Hindu faith.                As you can see in the picture that our people were able to welcome back and took them to nearby Lake and sprinkled water, considered as Ganga water, to purify them from baptism.                 Because of Coronavirus in Tirupati, Guntur, and Vijayawada, we are holding our efforts. We have employed five full-time employees to go to the villages and start Ghar Waapasi program.                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.   NEED YOUR HELP: We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more people who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi. We have employed 7 people so far. More people we hire more villages can be covered to welcome them back and also create Chaitanya (Awareness) among the students and villagers.

S3 Foundation Invites you to attend Laksha Chandi Maha Yagna – October 16-26 in Memphis: Blessings received from Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji and Dr Subramanian Swamy

S3 Foundation Invites you to attend Laksha Chandi Maha Yagna – October 16-26 in Memphis: Blessings received from Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji and Dr Subramanian Swamy S3 Foundation is extremely happy to organize Laksha (100,000) Chandi Maha Yagnam in Memphis TN, USA during Navaratri Time, October 16 thru 26. To our knowledge, nobody has conducted Yagnam at this scale. Chandi Homa is conducted to invoke the blessings of Goddess Chandi – the fierce and powerful form of Goddess Shakti. She is an embodiment of power, energy, and the divine forces, who safeguards all of us from evil forces and creates a balance between body and mind. Covid-19:                 During this deadly pandemic, S3 Foundation decide to organize Chandi Homa to counter the spread of Covid-19. This home will create subtle vibrations that can affect the invisible enemy causing the havoc. Purification of the air, neutralization of negative atmosphere, nullification of political rancor, ease the mental agony, attacking the deadly invisible virus, and hoping for early solution to blunt the spread are some of the benefits we can accrue by conducting Chandi Maha Yagnam. Durga Sapta Shati Sapta means seven and Shati means hundred. That means 700. Durga Sapta Shati implies that 700 slokas are composed of the birth of Shakti (Devi) up to the conclusion of war between and Devi and Rakshasas. It describes the glory, beauty, and power of Mother Goddess. Durga Sapta Shati is found in Markandeya Purana in 13 chapters from 81-93. It is believed that the recitation of Durga Sapta Shati brings fearlessness, rejuvenate vertebral nerves, and invigorate blood vessels. “Yadaaraadhanaha Sarve Sarvaan Kaamaan Avaapnuyuhu Na kinchith durlabham loke Durgaarchanavathaam Nrunaam ” “The devotees who worship Goddess Durga find themselves overflowing with all the desires and there is nothing in this material world which is difficult to be obtained by these devotees.” Chandi Mahayaga Homa or Yaga is an auspicious way of conducting fire worship to experience the divinity within and without. It is believed to be created by Lord Brahma for his livelihood and his attainment of spiritual growth by connecting atma with Paramatma. The main goal of conducting these Homas is to direct mankind to pursue righteous path. The fire worship is expected to benefit people with prosperity and health and energize and protect the environment for peaceful living. Fire is considered the source energy needed for existence. Homa creates a magnetic field that neutralizes the negativity and stimulates positive energy in the surroundings. For individuals, it helps revitalize brain cells, improves circulatory system, invigorates skin, reduces stress, and helps calm the mind. Chandi Mahayaga involves recitation of Durga Sapta Shati (700 verses) in praise of Mother Durga. Ghee and other items are offered to the sacrificial fire after chanting each verse. Different Gods or Goddesses are invoked depending on the kind Homa we conduct. If we are conducting Ganapathy Homa, we invoke Lord Ganesh while chanting mantras to remove the obstacle. The kind of benefits one accrues depends on the king home one performs. As we chant these verses, we hear how Chandi annihilated Shumbha and Nishumbha only to realize how we are expected to annihilate the negativity in life – indulgence and denial. Mantras are powerful and have the energy to purify and sanctify the atmosphere to achieve equilibrium in the panchabhutas. Laksha Chandi Maha Yagnam:                 If thethe vibrations created by one Chandi Yagnam can bring that many benefits and bring peace of mind and counter the pandemic, imagine the effect of 100,000 chanting of  Durga Sapta Shati (Devi Mahatyam). It is done in order to stop the spread of Coronavirus and alleviate the fear and restore the normalcy. Blessings from Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji and Dr Subramanian Swamy. https://youtu.be/aLWEB44RD_I REQUESTING HINDU TEMPLES TO SPONSOR S3 Foundation requests all Hindu Temples across the globe to support the Laksha Chandi Maha Yagnam to symbolize the unity in purpose. If you agree to sponsor the event with no obligations either financial or otherwise, please send your Temple LOGO via email or call one of the organizers. The attached brochure will give more details about the program. Venue: S3 Gaushala, 7945 Deadfall Road, Arlington, Tennessee.

GHHF Protests were organized in Tirupati Regarding the burning of Antarvedi Temple Radham and submitted petition to Collector’s Office.

On September 9, 2020, the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, VHP, BJP, RSS and other organizations organized protects in Tirupati expressing their outrage toward the burning of 62-year-old historical Radham belonging to Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple at Antarvedi in West Godavari District. They demanded that the government should take all the precautions to preserve the Hindu Temples. They expressed their displeasure in handling the hate crimes against Hindu Gods and Hindu Temples. The government is not keen on taking preventive measures to stop the attacks on Hindu Temples by other faiths. Even the investigations are not taken seriously as they have not submitted any reports on other incidents like Pittapuram.                On this occasion, Sri Saswaroopananda Swamy. Swamy Radha Manohar Das, BJP leader Sri Bhanuprakash Reddy, SaveTemples (GHHF) Representative Sri K Reddappa spoke about the need to protect Hindu Temples and punish the culprits. Memorandum Submitted to Collector’s Office and RDO Subject:  AntarvedI Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swami's chariot burning incident in the village must be investigated by CBI Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy's chariot burning incident in Antarvedi village has badly hurt the hearts of the Hindu people in the state. The feeling of lack of protection for the temples in the state is increasing day by day among the Hindu devotees. Destruction of idols at Pittapuram in East Godavari district in the past, burning of Radham belonging to Bitragunta Sri Venkateswara Swamy chariot in Nellore District,  the demolition of the entrance of Ammavari temple at Undrajavaram in West Godavari District reflect the senseless acts committed by people with hatred to Hinduism should be identified and punished. The government's reckless attitude towards the protection of Hindu temples and property is undisputed. The lack of seriousness on the part of the attitude of the state government, and authorities and their anti-Hindu attitude is deplorable. The State Government corrupt practices in the management of Hindu temples and misappropriation of assets is well documented. The Hindu community is strongly opposed to government policies. So the CBI investigation into the Antarvedi chariot burned incident and the comprehensive judiciary inquiry must be started. We demand an inquiry to prevent such incidents from happening again and again. Also, we demand the government to take action against the police who have registered illegal cases against Hindus. By dispersing the lawful protesters and failing to provide an immediate response to the queries, they are trying to suppress the freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. We demand the withdrawal of the cases against the Hindu devotees immediately. The culprits who responsible for the burning chariot should be identified, arrested. and severely punished.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi Continues in Telangana; Meetings conducted to awaken Hindu Pride and Unity.

"Our Bible reveals to us the character of our god with minute and remorseless exactness. ... It is perhaps the most damnatory biography that exists in print anywhere. It makes Nero an angel of light and leading by contrast."  Mark Twain (1835-1910) Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association with Nitya Satyam Organization, Telangana Student Sava Samithi, and many Hindu Volunteers are going to many villages to welcome the converted Christians back into Hinduism.                In Ranga Reddy District, our people were able to welcome back those who have taken a wrong path. About 25 converted Christians changed their faith to Hinduism. They were taken to nearby Grama Devata  (Village Goddess) where they took oath in front of the Goddess Mysamma by saying that they are returning to Hinduism without force or any inducement.                Also, you can see a few pictures where our volunteers were meeting with a number of people to talk about Hinduism and how it is different from Christianity. Our Volunteers allayed their fears created by Christian pastors who told them if they go back to their original faith, they will burn in hell. Many of them were living with the fear that the Bible God may get angry if they even talk to Hindus and go to the houses of their Hindu relatives.                Many Hindus converted to Christianity without knowing that they have to live with a number of restrictions imposed by Christian pastors. They were waiting to be approached to return to their mother since they were afraid of the Pastors.                NEED YOUR HELP: We appreciate 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.                Unless we concentrate on the ground level and know the extent of conversion going on, we may be blinded by lack of information about the facts and how rampant Christian menace is spreading in certain areas. Your support will at least blunt the Christian efforts and bring back those who left us without realizing the damage to their family members and how Christianity creates divisions among their relatives.   Donations: PayPal Method: To donate visit our website: savetemples.org. Click on the Donate button, then press the Purpose category, and select the General Donation category.

[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}}
