GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Tirupati Rural Mandalam – 5 Members returned to Hinduism

Gore Vidal I regard monotheism as the greatest disaster ever to befall the human race. I see no good in Judaism, Christianity, or Islam - good people, yes, but any religion based on a single, well, frenzied and virulent god, is not as useful to the human race… Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Harijanawada Village in Tirupati Rural 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 5 members to return to Hinduism. They were honored with Upper garments for men and Blouse pieces for women along with God’s pictures, the Hanuman flag, and other items. Many scholars talk about the greatness of the Bhagavad Gita. Humbolt mentioned that Bhagavad Gita is the only true philosophical treatise in the world. And perhaps the loftiest t and deepest thing in the world. Krishna cajoles Arjuna, “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. Compare Bhagavad Gita to Bible which Thomas Paine stated that that the Bible teaches us to rape, cruelty, and murder. Bible God even dashes the infants against the wall.  "See, the day of the Lord is coming — a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger. . . . I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty. . . . Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated (raped)." (Isaiah 13:9–16 NIV)  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) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year.

[GHHF] 120 Youth took Deeksha to Remain as Hindus, inspired by Sri Saidatta Swamy in Agency area in Visakhapatnam

Sir Monier Monier-Williams,  (1819 -1899) was the Sanskrit professor at Oxford University. He said The strength of Hinduism lies in its infinite adaptability to the infinite diversity of human character and human tendencies. It has its highly spiritual and abstract side suited to the philosopher, its practical to the man of the world, its aesthetic and ceremonial side attuned to the man of the poetic feeling and imagination; and its quiescent contemplative aspect that has its appeal for the man of peace and the lover of seclusion. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Vishakhapatnam are and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swamy and nearby Swamiji’s met with villagers in the Agency area and talked about the Vedas and scientific nature as well as our rich cultural heritage,  have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. Sri Swamiji explained the Hindu dharma is more open and inclusive. It is highly scientific, and all the scientific achievements were done by our ancient Rishis in such areas as surgery, medicine, music house building, and cosmology. Swamiji Inspires them to Remain Hindus                Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swamy has been working vigorously day and night in the agency to preserve Hindu Dharma by thwarting the Christian pressure to convert Hindus. Christians have been pressurizing the youth in the agency areas to get converted by demeaning Hinduism and exploiting the economic conditions. In fact, about ten youth were welcomed back to Hinduism with the help of other youth. The youth agreed to work with Swamiji to bring back as many Christians as possible to Hindu Dharma.                Swamiji talked to many youths over the months and convinced them to stay in Hindu dharma.  He talked about the richness of Hinduism and shared the short book comparing Bhagavad Gita and Bible. There are so many statements in the bible that reveals the hatred of Bible God toward people.                  Swamiji arranged a huge gathering with 120 youth who were addressed by Two Pracharaks and local arranged the program. Sr Swamiji was unable to attend the meeting. Hence, he sent a video applauding the youth and inspiring them to follow Hindu Dharma. Old Testament deity deemed human life to be worthless, placing his own self espoused glory above human values. Here is one of the worst examples: "See, the day of the Lord is coming — a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger. . . . I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty. . . . Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated." (Isaiah 13:9–16 NIV 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 Matlapalem Village in East Godavari District – Approached Christian Families Individually.

Voltaire (1694-1778) 'Christianity lit the torches that reduced our cities of ashes, and furbished the swords that for so long covered our countryside with the corpses of our ancestors' Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Matlapalem Village in East Godavari District  and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Our Associates Kollu Srinivasa Rau and his friends have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in West Godavari District and Visakhapatnam. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. They approached several families and were told that they are welcome to come back to Sanatana Dharma. Many of them asked about their Pastors' assertion that they took the oath with Bible on their heads, and they may be burning eternally in the fire. Our Associates informed them that God is not a killer and would not punish. God’s character is all-loving, compassionate, and all-forgiving. So, they do not have to fear God to return to Hinduism if they desire to do so. Our associates invited Christians to return to Hindu Dharma by applying TILAK on their foreheads. They talked about the richness of Sanatana Dharma, its tolerance, its nonviolent philosophy, and the concept of Vasudaiva Kutumbam. They compared with the Bible which highlights the hatred to other religions and encourages the destruction of Hindu Deities and demolition of Hindu Temples. As we all know that in 2020, more than 400 incidents were recorded to the Hindu Temples. They also mentioned that the Bible is full of contradictions, absurdities, and falsehoods. Many of them were surprised to find out what was written in the Bible and were happy to know something about Sanatana Dharma. As we all know very few Hindus have any idea about the richness of Hinduism. It was a pleasant surprise to find out something about their ancestors’ faith. Let us look at few verses on the killings and hateful comments by the God (Jesus):                Hosea 13:4, 9, 16 "You shall acknowledge no God but me. . . . You are destroyed, Israel. . . . The people of Samaria must bear their guilt,  because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open." (New International Version) 2 Kings 15:16 At that time Menahem, starting from Tirzah, attacked Tiphsah and everyone in its vicinity, because they would not open their gates. So he attacked Tiphsah and ripped open all the pregnant women. 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.

Guru Purnima 2021 – Remembering Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji

By Prakasarao V Velagapudi, PhD Datta Yoga Center USA Guru Purnima is an auspicious sacred and spiritual day to celebrate the significance of a Sadguru who is unique to the Hindu way of life. This is an occasion for all the disciples to clean their minds and purify their hearts. It is celebrated on a full moon day in the month of Ashada Masa (July-August). Guru Purnima is also known as Vyasa Purnima. It is to celebrate the contribution of Veda Vyasa and express our gratitude to him as a Guru who codified the knowledge. Veda Vyasa was born on this full moon day in the month of Ashada Masa. Vyasa is the one who completed the codification of Vedas into four distinct parts – Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Atharvana Veda and Sama Veda. He wrote Puranas which reveal the essence and spiritual meaning of Vedas in a story form for common people. He is also credited with the writing of Bhahmasutras – the quintessence of Vedas for learned people to grapple with higher-level knowledge. He not only wrote the classic Mahabharata, but he played a crucial role. On this day, let us remember his divine personality, time-tested wisdom, boundless compassion, and his ever-watchful eye over his devotees. We are most fortunate to have our Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji as a Sadguru manifested as a Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara in a physical form so that we can perform Guru Pada Puja to His Divine Personality. It is indeed a rare occasion for many disciples who can be with Guru on this Guru Purnima day. Devotees who are not fortunate enough to be with Sri Swamiji, in his utmost compassion, made all the arrangements for all of us to watch Him conduct Guru Purnima celebrations in Mysuru (Mysore). Sri Swamiji who is the Avatara of Lord Dattatreya himself is present in our hearts to emulate, cherish and learn the essence of the meaning of life. He is a Sadguru only to remove the darkness, light the wick of ignorance, guide us to the right path, impart the meaning of light, bring happiness to our lives, pour the amrita (ambrosia) into the hearts of all his disciples, kindle spirituality and impart knowledge to follow the path of self-knowledge. Why do we need a Guru? Sadguru is the One who has seen what He has to see, learned what He has to learn, heard what He has to hear, acquired what He has to acquire, and realized what He has to realize. He is here in this physical world in front of all of us at His will only to help, guide, console, comfort and to remove the darkness among all of us. His love for His devotees is unconditional, His concerns unequal, His compassion unparalleled, His attention undivided and His interest unsurpassed. Guru is absolute, supreme, and an embodiment of God. His existence is beyond the limits of time, form, and gunas (attributes). Tulasidas observes in Ramayana: “Sadguru infuses the power in the disciple to distinguish between the eternal and the perishable. He makes such arrangements that the disciple is able to feel the insignificance of the sensual experiences. As when properly instigated, a piece of coal turns radiant and hot, the human soul in the disciple can also unite with the absolute when the Sadguru destroys the indomitable self.” It is exceedingly difficult to come close to a Sadguru. It is the only the Punya karmas (virtuous deeds) of so many previous lives that can bring one to be with a Sadguru. He is Purna (Full) Being who possesses everything that envelopes the universe. Sadguru gives a new life to his disciples who are ready to open their hearts to receive the secrets of life. He has the capacity to know the dormant forces that lie within a disciple, and he will awaken these forces at an appropriate time. He is comforting, soothing, assuring, reassuring, and illuminating like a full moon showering countless blessings on his disciples.             Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji says that a devotee should be careful in selecting a Guru. Devotees must make every effort to learn the qualities of a Guru, his knowledge in scriptures, and his passion to transform the devotees to ward spiritual path. He says, “Guru is the beacon of light of the suffering humanity. He occupies a venerable post, but he does not have ego. He voluntarily comes down to the level of the disciple and guides him. A true Guru loves his disciple and guides him. A true Guru loves his disciple as parents love their children.”             Gurus are worshipped as embodiments of Gods. Guru is the one who enlightens you and guides you to cross the ocean of samsara. Human birth is riddled with troubles, ailments, and uncertainties. We become directionless, despondent, and desperate for proper advice at certain times in our lives. Hence Guru is imminent in one’s life to lift us from the material world to the spiritual path. Hinduism Today states in the April/May/June 2020 issue that “it is the guru’s task to lead aspirants to God. He sets souls on the spiritual path, corrects those strays, softens karmas, inspires lifelong practice, and through initiations, awakens the seekers superconscious knowing. He helps us become aware of our shortcomings and strengthens and gives us tools to overcome weaknesses and refine ourselves.” (P:27) On this Guru Purnima day, let us resolve ourselves to know the importance of a Guru in one’s life, how to glorify the greatness of a Guru, how to reminisce the rindless blessings of a guru and how to pay our gratitude for his limitless love to his devotees. Thus, Bhagawan Krishna said that we need to sit at the holy feet of a Sadguru and admonishes us to learn in Bhagavad Gita: “Learn the Truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him with reverence and render service unto him. Such an enlightened Saint can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the Truth. (4:34) As per Hindu scriptures, knowledge learned from a Guru is infused with energy and power enabling the devotees to follow the spiritual path,  face the problems with ease and achieve remarkable success in one’s life. Shiva Samhita says: Only the knowledge imparted by a Guru, through his lips, is powerful and useful; otherwise, it becomes fruitless, weak, and very painful. He who devoted to any knowledge, while pleasing his Guru with every attention, readily obtains the fruit of that knowledge. There is not the least doubt that Guru is the father. Guru is mother, and Guru is God even; and as such, he should be served by all with their thought, word, and deed. By Guru's favor everything good relating to one's self is obtained. So, the Guru ought to be daily served; else there can be nothing auspicious. Let him salute his Guru after walking three times around him and touching with his right hand his lotus-feet. (Chapter 3:11-15) Swami Vivekananda composed a hymn in praise of  his Guru Sri Ramakrishna. The following two stanzas are very touching (Universal Prayers, p. 213): “I take refuge in the Guru, who is like a wave rising out of the ocean of cosmic energy, who enacts His manifold divine play out of pure love, who is the great arrow to destroy the demon of doubt, who is the divine healer of the disease of worldliness.” “I take refuge in the Guru, who is well-established in the knowledge of the Truth of Non-duality, whose life is wrapped in the glowing garment of bhakti, or loving devotion to God, whose body is ever active in the wonderful work (of doing good to mankind) and Who is the divine Healer of the disease of worldliness.” The great poet Kabir, who was born near Benares around 1440 in a Muslim family, is one of the interesting personalities of Indian mysticism. Early in his life, he became a disciple of Swami Ramananda. Although Kabir's philosophical tones were contradictory at times, his poems captured the imagination of many people during that time. However, his admiration for the word of Guru was resolute and undaunted. “Receive that Word from which the Universe Springeth! The word is the Guru; I have heard it and became the disciple. How many are there who know the meaning of that word” Oh, Sadhu! Practice that Word! The Vedas and the Puranas proclaim it, The world is established in it, The Rishis and devotees speak of it, But none knows the mystery of the Word. The householder leaves his house when he hears it, The six Philosophies expound it, The Spirit of Renunciation points to that Word, From that Word, the world-form has sprung, The Word reveals all.” Kabir says” “But who knows whence the Word cometh?”  He also says: “Touch His Feet, who is one and indivisible, Immutable and peaceful, who fills all vessels to the brim with joy, and whose form is love.” Bhagawan Swaminarayan described the qualities of a Sadhu (Guru) in Vachanamruta Gadhada: “The attributes of the Sant – being free of lust, avarice, egotism, taste, attachment, etc. – are also described in the scriptures. The Sant who possesses these attributes has a direct relationship with God.”(III:27) "Satguru is an embodiment of pure love. It is love that sustains life on this earth. It is love that sustains all the things and beings. The love of a mother for her child is the most purest form of love that human mind could imagine. But remember, the greatest form of love is the one between a Guru and the disciple" Amma of Amritapuri. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji emphasized the need for Guru in his speech on Guru Purnima on July 21, 2005;  “It is very difficult to get to Guru. For so many years you have struggled with your karma, then you get Sadguru. But it only takes one second to lose Him! One second is enough! It’s not only difficult to get to Guru but also to maintain that relationship. If you get to Guru, it is good luck—your good merit from a previous birth. The journey is exceedingly difficult, I know. In this big ocean of life, called samsara, there are no directions, no compass, and we cannot swim. At that time, you must chant Guru’s name. “ What should a devote do on Guru Purnima Day             On this day it is the responsibility of a devotee to connect with his Guru whether you are in his presence or away from him physically. The best way to follow him is to listen to his discourses, read his books, listen to his music, sing his bhajans, practice meditation taught by his guru, visit the nearby Temples, and work toward preserving Hindu dharma. Swami Sivananda says, "The best form of worship of the guru is to follow his teachings, to shine as the very embodiment of his teachings, and to propagate his glory and his message." Further he says that a devotee “may observe the vow of silence and study the books or writings of your guru, or mentally reflect upon his teachings. Take fresh resolves on this holy day, to tread the spiritual path in accordance with the precepts of your guru. The Guru’s Love Guru's love is unchanging. He never forgets his devotees. He never abandons them. He receives them with an open heart. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji is an embodiment of love, compassion, kindness, benevolence, and sympathy. We have seen some devotees who have left Sri Swamiji for a number of years, criticizing him, and abusing him for not fulfilling their desires. They never realized Sri Swami always knows our needs, knows our past, and knows what we deserve. He blesses us with what we deserve rather than what we desire. Following is the essence of His love to the devotees as described in various scriptures: “You may come to him for a few seconds, then go away and do whatever you will. His love is unchanging. You may deny Him to Himself and to yourself, then curse him to any who will listen. His love is unchanging. You may become the most despised of creatures, then return to him. His love is unchanging. You may become the enemy of God Himself, then return to him. His love is unchanging. Go where you will; do what you will; stay however long you will, and come back to him. His love is unchanging. Abuse others; abuse yourself; abuse Him, and come back to him. His love is unchanging. He will never criticize you; He will never minimize you; He will never desert you. Because, to him, you are everything and He Himself is nothing. He will never deceive you; He will never ridicule you; He will never fail you. Because, to Him, you are God-nature to be served and He is your servant. No matter what befalls, no matter what you become, He awaits you always. He knows you. He serves you. He loves you. His love for you, in the changing world, is unchanging.” Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji never forsakes the disciples even if they disappear for years or abuse him or criticize him. His love is divine love, no ordinary love. Hence, it is unconditional, and it has no boundaries. Guru keeps an eye on his devotees all the time and watches over them. Babaji to Lahiri Mahasaya: “Though you lost sight of me… never did I lose sight of you… I followed you like a mother following her young.” Guru Pada Puja It is customary to perform Pada Puja to the Lotus Feet of a living Sadguru on Guru Purnima. It is indeed a rare opportunity for a disciple to participate in that kind of Pada Puja. Why is it so important to perform Pada Puja? The Guru’s Feet are worshiped because Guru’s Shakti dwells in the Feet. The vibrations of the inner self constantly flow out through the Feet. The nerves that come from the Sahasrara reach right down to the Feet. The Feet serve as the support for the whole body. This is the reason the Feet are given so much importance. More Shakti flows from the Feet than any other part of the body. Kularnava Tantra says: “Remember the Guru’s Sandals …They provide protection against great diseases, great disturbances, great evils, great fears, great calamities and great sins.” According to all the scriptures, the Foot of Guru are no ordinary Foot. Gurupaddangre paadodakam Ganga. All holy waters, including Mother Ganga, live in the Guru’s Feet. This is what you should think in your heart when worshiping the Guru. All holy waters, all Devatas, or angels, and all sacred hills abide in the Guru’s Feet. One should have firm Sankalpa (intention, determination) to behold all gods in Guru’s Feet. The Trimurthis – Brahma, Vishnu, Siva – live in Guru’s Feet. These three Divine Forms symbolize the removal of the three qualities of nature that keeps the soul in bondage. The three qualities are tamas (sense of ego), rajas (passion, desire), and sattva (goodness and purity). When these three qualities are removed, then the soul becomes free, pure, and Chinmaya (full of light). So, after Guru Pada Puja, it is especially important to surrender the three qualities to the Divine Trinity along with all the unhealthy habits and selfish ego. This is the significance of self-surrender to the Guru’s Feet. Especially on Guru Purnima day, Pada Puja assumes even greater significance since it bestows countless blessings, peace of mind, and mental satisfaction.             Guru’s shakti (energy) dwells in the feet. The holy feet serve as anchor for the whole body. The energy constantly flows from the Sahasrara chakra to the holy feet. Bhakta Tukaram says, “If you have faith in the Guru’s Holy feet, if you have deep feeling for the Guru’s Holy feet, if you imbibe the state of the Guru, then you don’t have to look for God, God will come looking for you.” Adi Shankaracharya composed a song on the importance of Padukas during his first meeting with his Guru, Sri Govind Bhagavadpada. We will list three of the eight verses to know how prostrations at the lotus feet of a Sadguru would fetch benefits to his devotees. Those who prostrate to the blessed sandals of their Guru become possessors of great wealth and overcome the curse of their poverty very quickly. To such sandals my infinite prostrations. Attracting us to the Lotus-like feet of our Guru, removing all kinds of desires borne out of ignorance, fulfilling all the desires of the disciple who bows humbly To such sandals, I humbly offer my obeisance. They are like an eagle for all the serpents of desires, Blessing us with the valuable treasure of discrimination and renunciation, Granting us the knowledge to get instant liberation from the shackles of life, My prostrations to those holy sandals of my Guru. Requesting Sadguru to Pardon our Mistakes             On this Guru Purnima, let us request Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji to forgive all our mistakes, remove all our egos, help us to grow spiritually, assist in treading toward vairagya and instill devotion to your Lotus Feet. Either knowingly or unknowingly, consciously or unconsciously, intentionally or unintentionally, we may have committed many blunders. Let us remember three verses from the Shiva Aparadha Kshamapana Stotram and request him to pardon our mistakes. When I was passing through the period of youth, I was bitten by the five snakes of senses, In vulnerable spots, And hence lost I, my wisdom, And began concentrating on pleasures Of son, riches, and ladies, And so did not think of thee Parameswara, And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon. My sins, Oh Mahadeva. Unable I am to observe the complex rules of Dharma daily, Unable I am to follow the rules of Veda as told by Brahmins, Unable I am to know Dharma by listening to Vedas and meditating, And so what is the use of daily learning all these. And so Shambho, be pleased to pardon. My sins, Oh Mahadeva. Hey please hear,  Daily span of life decreases, The youth daily disappears, The days that are past do never return, Time eats down the earth, And Life and wealth are not permanent, For they are like the tide and lightning, And so my god Parameswara, Forever protect this devotee of thine. On this auspicious Guru Purnima day, may we request Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji to protect his devotees,  bless them profusely, remove the evil deeds of arishadvargas (six enemies), direct them to follow the dharmic path, sow the seeds of service to humanity, and encourage them to follow and preserve Hindu dharma.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi – Welcomed 28 members to Hinduism from Narayanapeta District in Telangana

Thomas Paine It is far better that we admitted a thousand devils to roam at large than that we permitted one such impostor and monster as Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and the Bible prophets, to come with the pretended word of God and have credit among us. [The Age of Reason] 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 welcomed 28 Christians back to Hindu Dharma from Narayanapeta 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.   As Thomas Paine stated that the content in the Bible  was so ridiculous that he thought  it is better to have 1000 devils roam around than the  teachings of Moses, Joshua, Samuel,  and other Bible prophets. As we all know that  Bible is full of rapes, conquests, debauchery, inquisitions, tortures, hatred, vindictiveness, and brutalization of mankind. Lakshmi Nivas stated that Christianity from the beginning blamed women for all the sins and was considered a first sinner. They were condemned and sentenced. She was to play a subordinate role and dependent on man’s resources for all her needs. She is supposed to be silent in the church and should not ask any questions.   Christians cannot stand alone. They have to be crowded together to defend their faith. They are like parasites. They have to feed themselves by embracing the host country and slowly suck their recourses and try to destroy them.  They cannot answer any questions. They would not allow any body to ask questions because Bible is full of contradictions, rapes, killings, and hatred.                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. A 52-page book comparing the verses in Bible and Bhagavad Gita is also distributed. 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 12 people so far.

[GHHF] Renovation of ancient SRI RAMA TEMPLE in Agency area in Vishakhapatnam Area to Stop the Conversion of Hindus; Donations Requested.

Romain Rolland was a French dramatist,  essayist, novelist, , mystic and art historian, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. He said: “… faith in the case of the Hindus has never been allowed to run counter to scientific laws, moreover the former is never made a condition for the knowledge they teach, but there are always scrupulously careful to take into consideration the possibility that by reason both the agnostic and atheist may attain truth in their own way. Such tolerance may be surprising to religious believers in the West, but it is an integral part of Vedantic belief.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Vishakhapatnam are and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swamy and nearby Swamiji’s met with villagers in the Agency area and talked about the Vedas and scientific nature as well as our rich cultural heritage,  have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. Sri Swamiji explained the Hindu dharma is more open and inclusive. It is highly scientific, and all the scientific achievements were done by our ancient Rishis in such areas as surgery, medicine, music house building, and cosmology.  Renovation of Sri Rama Temple to stop Conversion                Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swamy has been working vigorously in the agency are to bring the Christians back to Hinduism through Ghar Waapasi. With the assistance of Sri Swamiji GHHF was able to provide a 1.5-kilometer water line to provide water thereby preventing them from being converted to Christianity. Similarly, Poleramma Temple is planned to prevent all 35 families in a village to embrace Christianity. Now Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to participate in the renovation of the ancient Sri Rama Temple in  Malapeta village in  Vaddadi Mandalam in Visakhapatnam District. Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swamy has visited few times to this village and helped them to renovate part of Rama Temple. Due to a paucity of funds, the renovation work stopped. Swamiji went to look at the progress and assessed the situation and came up with an estimate of 1.5 lakh rupees. They needed Ram Parivar Vigrahas, Ganesh, and other statues.                In this village there are about 600 families. All of them belong to Maala (Dalit) community. Nearly 400 families got converted. Rest of the approximately 200 families do not have proper guidance to proceed and also no Hindu religious activities are organized to bring them together. With Swamiji’s guidance, they completed one-third of the renovation.                Sri Swamiji feels very strongly that those who converted Christians can be brought back to Hinduism after he talked to several of them. Their reasons to convert were two: 1)     Swamiji’s and Priests do not go to their houses and eat the way Christian pastors do. 2)     Hindu Temples do not allow them to participate in the worship services.                Based on their concerns, he decided that he has to show in good faith that we do not discriminate. Hence, first, he agreed to visit their houses and eat the food cooked by them. Whoever invites him for lunch or dinner he will go to their houses to make sure they are returned to Hindu Dharma? Second, he also agreed that during the Prana Prathishta time he would invite every Christian family to come to do the Abhishekam to newly installed Deities. DONATIONS REQUESTED                Global Hindu Heritage Foundation decides to help renovate Sri Rama Temple to reconvert the Christians back to Hinduism. Rama Parivar Vigrahas – Sri Rama, Sita Devi, Lakshmana and Hanuman – and Ganesh. To finish the renovation of the remaining Temple, lot of materials are needed – cement, bricks, sand, iron, and other items. The approximate cost is 1.5 lakhs.

GHHF Welcomed 41 Christians back to Hinduism - Ghar Waapasi in Kalyanadurga Mandalam in Anantapur District.

Anne Wood Besant (1 October 1847 - 20 September 1933) was a British born socialist, women's rights activist, writer, theosophist, and orator.  “After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophical and no so spiritual that the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil into which India’s roots are stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out from its place. And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism who shall save it? If India’s own children do not cling to her faith who shall guard it? India alone can save India and India and Hinduism are one.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to welcome four Pracharaks who have committed to work at the ground level and visited a number of villages to talk about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and how it is different from Christianity. 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.

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 Christian’s 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.             Forty one (41) Christians from Mallikarjunapalli, Boyalapalli, Kamakkapalli, Pillalapalli and other villages volunteered to returned to Hindu Dharma. Gopi Chary and three other priests organized Ghar Waapasi welcomed them by performing Pujas, Navagraha Puja, Navagraha Homa, Ganapathy Homa, Narasimha Swami Homa, and Sri Venkateswara Swami Homa.

GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Chandragiri Mandalam – 12 members returned to Hinduism

Thomas Paine “All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Kotala Village in Chandargiri 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 12 members to return to Hinduism. They were honored with Upper garments for men and Blouse pieces for women along with God’s pictures, the Hanuman flag, and other items. Many scholars talk about the greatness of the Bhagavad Gita. Humbolt mentioned that Bhagavad Gita is the only true philosophical treatise in the world. And perhaps the loftiest t and deepest thing in the world. Krishna cajoles Arjuna, “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. Compare Bhagavad Gita to Bible which Thomas Paine stated that that the Bible teaches us to rape, cruelty, and murder. In fact, Bible sanctions the rape: Judges 19:24-25;  “Here is my virgin daughter and his concubine. Please let me bring them out that you may ravish them and do to them whatever you wish. But do not commit such an act of folly against this man.” As Thomas Paine noted that many churches terrify people, create fear, produce hate, encourage prostitution, promote drinking and enslave the church members.  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) 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 Vaddeswaram Village in Guntur District – Distributed Sanatana Dharma material to Christian Families

Mark Twain “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.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce that Sri K. Bhagyeswara Rao joined our efforts to undertake Ghar Waapasi program around Mangalagiri area within 30 mile radius. He has been continually active in different ways to invite Christians back into Hindu Dharma. He showed his passion to preserve and propagate Sanatana Dharma to all the Christian families who left their faith to Christianity due to various reasons including allurement, deception, false promises of curing terminally ill people, demeaning the Hindu Gods and projecting Christianity as peace of Love. Bhagyeswara Rao talked to about 32 families or individuals and shaed two documents – four page flyer explaining the individual rights accorded by the Constitution of India and how they are protected from the missionaries. The second document is a 52 page booklet comparing and contrasting Bhagavad Gita and Bible. Like most Hindus, it was a surprising for them to know that they can repel the Christian aggression, force, and false propaganda. Our Pracharak explained the real nature of Christianity which in involved in killings, murders, rapes, looting, burning, stoning to death and such violent acts through out the history. The Christian missionaries are ruthless, aggressive, immoral, and cruel in advancing their Christian faith. They have no moral standards to go by, no ethical principles to follow and no honesty to adhered to. Any thing goes to convert since it is a business for the. Their livelihood depends on the number of Christians who can hold on to in his congregation. He talked about the differences between Bhagavad Gita and Bible. He explained that Church Pastors are like leeches who squeeze money from the Congregation members who are required to pay 10 percent of their income irrespective of their economic status. 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 16 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. In the next few days, we are planning to recruit another FOUR Pracharaks. 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.

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}}
