[GHHF] Our Pracharaks talked about the Importance and the reasons for doing Puja among Village Hindus encouraging them to follow the ancient traditions and Culture.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is established to ensure that our customs, rituals and traditions are practiced by Hindus. It is also important to realize that if Hinduism is to survive, they must understand the relevance and utility of conducting Pujas. For times immemorial, puja is an integral part of a Hindu devotee’s life.  What is Puja? Essentially, Puja is a ceremony or ritual during which we make offerings to a deity in order to receive blessings or good fortune as prasad. During a Puja, we often repeat sacred stotras or verses or mantras that help us to connect to God and make our mind peaceful. The entire act of Puja is a symbolic means of showing devotion to a deity and surrendering oneself at the altar, as a mark of true worship. Who performs Puja? In truth, anyone who has faith and believes in a deity or scripture or Guru can perform Puja at their home. So, you really don’t need any qualification to do puja. Just your faith is enough. But there are individuals called Pujaris or priests, who have studied the scriptures and gained knowledge by which they guide us to perform certain rituals. They help us understand the significance of these rituals, pooja items, pooja mandir and why puja is important so that we perform them with utmost faith. They are aware of certain rules for each ritual, like which Puja to perform during an occasion or which puja should be conducted at a certain time. Also, they know what are the sacred objects that are required to perform a Puja. So, taking guidance from them is helpful. These Pujaris devote their entire lives to the service of God. They pass on their knowledge to worthy students, who too want to follow this path. Why perform Puja? The reason is in the word itself – “Pu” means ‘to purify’ or ‘to cleanse’ and “ja” means ‘birth’. So, as you perform Puja, you cleanse your body, mind, and intellect and essentially take a new birth each time. So, if you feel that you need to reset your inner self and start anew, a Puja is what will help you get there. While performing a Puja your body, mind, and intellect are all aligned and focused on one thing – your deity. While you are performing the actions with your hands, you are chanting or reciting His name with complete faith and reverence. It’s a great way to discipline yourself and make your mind single pointed. If one is overwhelmed with negative thoughts, burdened with pressure or problems, or simply cannot understand which way to turn, then a Puja will also help in clearing up the mind and seeing a path that was previously hidden. Your negativity can have an adverse effect on your house and your loved ones too. So not only does a puja help you but also your environment.  You actually don’t need any specific pooja materials to pray, just your availability. But to perform puja, you may need a few essentials. These can be as simple or as elaborate as you may like, makes no difference. What makes a difference is your faith. If you are looking for options for Pooja Thali or Puja Items, we can offer you a beautiful set with hand-beaten copper and brass items. (Source: Chinmaya mission).

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras organized Surya Namaskar for memory, health, concentration and Discipline in all Students.

India ...beyond all doubt possesses a deep underlying fundamental unity, far more profound that that produced either by geographical isolation or by political suzerainty. That unity transcends the innumerable diversities of blood, color, language, dress, manners and sect." Vincent Arthur Smith (1848 - 1920) Global Hindu Heritage is very happy to inform that we started about 150 Bala Samskar Kendras in eight States in India – Assam, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal - to teach about the richness of Hinduism, Hindu festivals, Hindu ethos, Hindu History, and culture and traditions. Sri Rajesh is a very active member in the community championing the Hindu Values not only to the children but also actively involved in making the Hindus proud of their culture. Our Children are taught about the richness of our culture by teaching about various scriptures and the timeless wisdom found in them.  Our students will learn how Hindus conceive the abstract concept of God, their features, physical features and the divine qualities. We talk about the characteristics of Lord Rama, the attributes and his behavior and the qualities that we can emulate. Many of our Gods are incarnated at different times and we try to explain about different Avataras and the purpose of incarnating at a particular time. Why Surya Namaskar Asanas. According to Sage Sushrutha (Master of Ayurveda), health is defined as  "sama dosha sama agni scha sama dhatu mala kriyaaha| Prasanna atma indriya manaha swastha iti abhidheeyate" Translation: One is in perfect health when the Three doshas (vata, pitta and Kapha), metabolic fire (digestion, assimilation and transformation), all the bodily tissues & components (the entire physical body) all the excretory functions ( urination, sweat, and defecation) are in perfect order with a pleasantly disposed and contented mind, senses and spirit. There are twelve Asanas one is taught standing in front of sun in the morning wherever it is possible, It can be done other times facing east. Ten minutes of doing Surya Namaskar would have dramatic effect in various aspects of one’s life. We all know that without sun, there is no life. Sun radiates energy and heat, without which there is no life.  Why Children? We all know that child is unable to concentrate on academics. While reading about the parts of a flower and understanding the composition of water, the mind keeps slipping away for a little walk. Surya Namaskar is a great warm-up for kids, as it stretches the entire body and helps move every joint and major muscle group present. This smooth transition between the poses helps one concentrate and focus and can have a marked effect on the creativity and focus levels of the child. In this article, let us take a look at the methods of making Surya Namaskar more fun, as well as the steps to performing it. Benefits of Surya Namaskar Improves Concentration Inculcates sense of discipline Calms the mind and get rid of restlessness Enhances memory power Increases energy levels Increased learning capacity Tones muscles and improves flexibility Great cardio training and hormonal balance Improves digestion and promotes weight loss Increases energy and awareness levels Reduces moods swings and brings more emotional stability Improves Your Skin’s Glow. GHHF has introduced to our Bala Samskar Students to encourage children to start leaning Surya Namaskar at very young age to reap all the benefits for the rest of their lives. At this age they can tone up their muscles and body. It also changes their mental makeup when introduced at very early age. It also helps reduce many ailments.  Your donations are appreciated; By Zelle: ghhfusaorg@gmail.com PayPal: savetemples.org By Check: Or you can send a check payable to GHHF, 14726 Harmony Lane, Frisco, TX 75035.

Dr. Karanam Aravinda Rao gave a powerful speech on raising and Protecting Hindu Children in USA.

Dr. Karanam Aravinda Rao gave a powerful speech on raising and Protecting Hindu Children in USA. Access his book in Savetemples.org Dr K. Aravinda Rao gave a powerful speech on “How to Raise and Protect our Precious Hindu Children in USA.” at the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple in Frisco Texas on June 9, 2024.  He is an IAS officer and worked as DGP for combines Andhra Pradesh. He traced his experience of realizing the importance in knowing the richness of Hinduism when he arrested a group of terrorists and realized how much they committed to their faith. He was surprised at their firm faith and the way they defended. Thus, his journey into the Sanatana Dharma     He advised the parents to teach about Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagavad Gita. We all should get acquainted with these books to impart knowledge to our children and teach them how relevant the message of these books. Also, should read the narrative of Brahma Sutras.      Parents should take the responsibility of teaching the essentials of Hinduism. They are curious to know about the creation, Advaita philosophy, why we have so many Gods, what are our traditions and customs, etc.  Every family should acquire at least 50 books and keep them in the house. By looking at them we get inspiration to read them. Although they may be available on the internet, it is not quite equal to keeping the books in the house. Many of us do not know much about Hinduism as the Britishers changed the educational importance by emphasizing the British way of looking at Sanatana Dharma instead of looking at the source of our knowledge.  Dr. Aravinda Rao suggested that his book “How to tell Hinduism to your Children” is available on the internet. In fact, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) realizing the importance to accessing this book to all the parents, we published them in our website:  www.savetemples.org Chapters 1 &2 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-1-1-2-chapters/399 Chapters 3&4 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-2-3-4-chapters/401 Chapters 5&6 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-3-5-6-chapters/402 Chapters 7&8 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-4-7-8-chapters/403 Chapters 9&10 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-5-9-10-chapters/405 Chapters 11&12 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-6-11-12-chapters/407 Chapters 13&14 https://www.savetemples.org/post/how-to-tell-hinduism-to-your-child-k-aravinda-rao-part-7-13-14-chapters/408 For further information on this book or if want to know the mission of GHHF, please contact me at: 601-918-7111 {{album_1121}}

[GHHF] Bala Samskar Kendras – Students celebrated World Environment Day. Children planted trees.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation celebrated World Environment Day (WED) on 5 June and encourages awareness and action for the protection of the environment. It is supported by many non-governmental organizations, businesses, and government entities, and represents the primary United Nations outreach day supporting the environment.  Despite bad weather conditions, cyclone etc. Bala Samskar Kendras celebrated this day like every year. 123 saplings of different plants were planted by Bala Samskar Kendras. This year we decided to take care of 100 plants till attaining their maturity stage, each Bala Samskar Kendra will take care of 5 plants. They will do the regular gardening of these 5 plants. Children will learn about the significance and importance of the environment and trees in our life. Sri Samrat Dutt, one of the Board members of GHHF, has   taken immense interest in celebrating World Environment Day to highlight the importance of Panchabhutas in ancient scriptures. The GHHF Assam stated that Balasamskar Kendras of Assam celebrated World Environment Day.200 saplings were planted by Balasamskar students across three districts to mark World Environment Day. Art competition has also been organized by Balasamskar Kendras in collaboration with many Government schools on Environment Day. Teachers not only spoke about the importance of the environment but also talked about the Plants and trees' environment in Sanatana Dharma. Lastly, teachers also spoke a few things about the concept of Balasamskar Kendras and the activities of GHHF Assam. First held in 1973, it has been a platform for raising awareness on environmental issues such as marine pollution, overpopulation, global warming, sustainable development, and wildlife crime.[3] World Environment Day is a global platform for public outreach, with participation from over 143 countries annually. Each year, the program provides a theme and forum for businesses, non-government organizations, communities, governments, and celebrities to advocate environmental causes. World Environment Day was established in 1972 by the United Nations at the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment (5–16 June 1972), that resulted from discussions on the integration of human interactions and the environment. One year later, in 1973 the first WED was held with the theme "Only One Earth". Hinduism and Environmentalism Hinduism teaches that the five great elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) that constitute the environment are all derived from Prakriti, the primal energy. Each of these elements has its own life and form; together the elements are interconnected and interdependent. Dr. Pankaj Jain stated in his article on Environmental Teachings Hinduism contains numerous references to the worship of the divine in nature in its Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas, Sutras, and other sacred texts. Millions of Hindus recite Sanskrit mantras daily to revere their rivers, mountains, trees, animals, and the earth. Although the Chipko (tree-hugging) Movement is the most widely known example of Hindu environmental leadership, there are examples of Hindu action for the environment that are centuries old. Hinduism is a remarkably diverse religious and cultural phenomenon, with many local and regional manifestations. Within this universe of beliefs, several important themes emerge. The diverse theologies of Hinduism suggest that: * The earth can be seen as a manifestation of the goddess and must be treated with respect. * The five elements -- space, air, fire, water, and earth -- are the foundation of an interconnected web of life. * Dharma -- often translated as "duty" -- can be reinterpreted to include our responsibility to care for the earth. * Simple living is a model for the development of sustainable economies. * Our treatment of nature directly affects our karma. Hymn to Mother Earth in Atharvana Veda: ‘Mother (earth) with your oceans, rivers, and other bodies of water, you give us land to grow grains, on which our survival depends…milk, fruits, water, and cereals as we need to eat and drink… please pour like a cow who never fails, a thousand streams for treasure to enrich me. May you, our motherland on whom we grow wheat, rice, and barley be nourished by the cloud and love by the rain’. For the Purusha, the male principle the scriptures say: ‘The air is his breath, the trees are the hairs of his body, the oceans his waist, the hills and mountains are his bones, the rivers are the veins of the Cosmic Person, His movements are the passing of ages’.  Your donations are appreciated; By Zelle: ghhfusaorg@gmail.com PayPal: savetemples.org By Check: Or you can send a check payable to GHHF, 14726 Harmony Lane, Frisco, TX 75035.

[GHHF Assam] distributing Food, dry items, Mosquito Coils, Baby Food, Milk and biscuits for the last seven Days to more than 5000 Cyclone affected people .

 When giving – give generously without stinginess, give abundantly (as much as you can), give with humility, (without publishing your act), give with empathy, with mindfulness. (Taittiriay Upanishad) Global Hindu Heritage Foundation in Assam has been distributing cooked foods, medicines, mosquito coils, dry foods, baby foods to cyclone and flood affected peoples of Assam. The floods following the heavy rains in the aftermath of Cyclone Remal affected over 600,000 people and killed 18, in India’s Northern State of Assam. The floods have hit 10 districts --Hojai, Karimganj, Morigaon, Nagaon, Dima-Hasao, Cachar, Dibrugarh, Hailakandi, Golaghat and Karbi Anglong West-- as the situation remains grim, Xinhua reported. Scorching heat waves hit several parts of the country while Assam saw devastating floods triggered by Cyclone Ramel. GHHF Assam started Seva activities for the affected people of Assam. For the last seven days we served biscuits, dry foods, mosquito coils, water bottles, milk, baby foods , khichdi etc. to more than 5000 people's took shelter in various places in Assam. "In Assam, the flood situation remains grim as 625,318 people are reeling under the deluge across 10 districts," an official said. "Four people have lost their lives in the past 24 hours and the number of deaths caused by the floods has so far reached to 18." Officials said at present 577 villages are inundated and about 6,023 hectares of crop area have been damaged across the affected districts. According to the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), the local government has opened 191 relief camps and 108 distribution centers in the affected areas. Swami Vivekananda, coined a famous expression to capture this idea, by saying:  "Work [in the service of others] is worship!" According to Swami Vivekananda, service to relieve the suffering of others, without any regard for one's own discomfort, and with no selfish motive of fame or gain, is one of the paths to God: the karma yoga, or path of good works, described  in the Bhagavad Gita as "detachment from the fruits of action."

[GHHF] Making Hindus aware of the greatness of Hinduism and how it is different from Christianity.

“The Indians possessed a knowledge of the true God, conceived and expressed in noble, clear and grand language…Even the loftiest philosophy of the Europeans, the idealization of reason, as set forth by the Greeks, appears in comparison with the abundant light and vigor of oriental idealism, like a feeble spark in the full flood of the noonday sun.” Frederich von Schlegel (1772-1829), German philosopher, critic, and writer, the most prominent founder of German Romanticism Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is committed to teach about the greatness of Sanatana Dharma and how it is different from Christianity. Gopi Chary, Arjun, Anil Kumar and Hanumante visit the villages every day to make them aware of the differences and point out few examples of verses from the Bible.  They approached several families and were told that they were welcome to come back to Sanatana Dharma. Many of them asked about their Pastor's assertion that they took an oath with Bible on their head, 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 tying Raksha to their wrist. 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 of 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 God (Jesus): Genesis 19:24-25 Then the LORD rained down sulfur and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah— from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus, He destroyed these cities and the entire plain, including all the inhabitants of the cities and everything that grew on the ground. Genesis 7:4 For seven days from now, I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living thing I have made.” 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.

[GHHF] “We have to Protect our Dharma.” Part 1; An exclusive Interview by Prime 9 News

I was interviewed by Sri Shiv Vadlamudi of Prime 9 News on different life experiences. Started with a question about protests against GHHF and me and asked me to explain why they protested. I trace the incident that occurred in 2019 in a village near Tirupati where a Pastor was building a Church within 20 meters from a Devi Temple. With villagers’ support a petition to stop the construction was submitted to the Pastors who agreed to stop and left the village.  Then realizing some of the rules pertaining to the construction of Churches, we requested the Collector, TUDA official and Mandal Officer to find out if they ever given permission to build Churches. Realizing they did not issue any permits, we requested the TUDA to take appropriate action as per law. TUDA issued an Order to Commissioner remove the unlawful structures. Several Muslims and Christians protested against GHHF in Frisco Texas for four weekends. Then the interview reverted to my coming to USA in 1965, my education, marriage, Hindu roots, involvement in the construction of Hindu Temple in Jackson, meeting of Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, the retirement and start of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOnMXkultX0 For all the activities about GHHF, please visit www.savetemples.org
