[GHHF] Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) update for the weekend of November 28. Please call us if you can help start Bala Samskar in your Village/Neighborhood.

Carl Sagan (1934 – 1996) “The most elegant and sublime of these is a representation of the creation of the universe at the beginning of each cosmic cycle, a motif known as the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva. The god, called in this manifestation Nataraja, the Dance King. In the upper right hand is a drum whose sound is the sound of creation. In the upper left hand is a tongue of flame, a reminder that the universe, now newly created, with billions of years from now will be utterly destroyed.”

[GHHF] Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) update for the weekend of November 28. Please call us if you can help start Bala Samskar in your Village/Neighborhood.

Carl Sagan (1934 – 1996) “The most elegant and sublime of these is a representation of the creation of the universe at the beginning of each cosmic cycle, a motif known as the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva. The god, called in this manifestation Nataraja, the Dance King. In the upper right hand is a drum whose sound is the sound of creation. In the upper left hand is a tongue of flame, a reminder that the universe, now newly created, with billions of years from now will be utterly destroyed.”  Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) were started as planned in twenty-eight locations/ villages. The teachers were instructed to talk about the importance of teaching the basic values of Sanatana Dharma, the morals, the Gurus, festivals , historical figures, stories from scriptures and other topics. Due to heavy rains, eight classes in around Tirupati were cancelled. In other three locations, we conducted about twenty-six schools on November 28, 2021. 1) Agency Area in Pendurthi (Coordinator: Sri Sai Manasa Datta) 2) Visakhapatnam in Vamby area (Kollu Srinivas Raju) 3) Tirupati (Bangaram Amaraveni) 4) Hyderabad. (Lakshmi Nivas) We are planning to conduct similar classes in Kakinada area, Madanapalli, Anantapur and Eluru Palem in Prakasam Dist. We will update you as we make progress. Why Conduct Bala Samskar  Sunday Schools? 1)     Parents are not equipped to transmit the timeless wisdom of Sanatana Dharma 2)     Schools are teaching anti-Hindu sentiments and in fact demeaning our Gods and Scriptures; They are in fact glorifying the religions that believe in violence, terror, killings, deceptive conversion tactics, hatred, etc. 3)     Our Hindu Temple are under the Government control whose mission is abuse our Temples, loot our money, employ other religious people to undermine the sacredness of our Temples. 4)      Christians are taking advantage of our inaction by wooing our children with incentives such as chocolates, Biscuits, pens, books, and money where they learn to hate Hinduism Our children are our strength. They are our future. They are going to be our Ambassadors to Hindu Dharma in preserving, protecting, and propagating our ancient civilization. For centuries, we as Hindus failed to transmit the knowledge to our next generations. With no knowledge about our faith and with no pride in the universality and non-violence of Sanatana Dharma, our children as well as adults have become targets for Christians to convert. They have used plethora of deceptive tactics to woo our Hindus to Christianity as we are not able to defend our religion and also not able to question the barbaric nature of the Bible. We have become defenseless and not equipped with no knowledge about our heritage. Why Bala Samskar Planned? Bala Samskars / Sunday Schools are being planned for two purposes: 1) To teach about the richness and glory of our Sanatana Dharma. It is eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in our scriptures, and its universal appeal to the humanity. 2) Also prevent the Christian aggressive missionary threat to Hinduism. Children are lured away by the Christians bribing them with many unnecessary needs to attract them. They give Chocolates, pens, pencils, and promises of many material things and invite them to Churches and start brainwashing them to believe in their religion and teach them to hate Hinduism. As many of you aware that GHHF initiated Ghar Waapasi to welcome back to Hinduism those that were either lured, forced, or intimidated to get converted to Christianity. Christian Conversion is going at a rapid pace. With the support of the present Andhra Pradesh government, Christians have become emboldened to openly attacking the Hindu Temples, destroying the ancient Images, and burning the chariots. They even demanding the breakup of Bharath int two countries. We started with four Pracharaks who responsibility is to explain the differences between Bible and Bhagvad Gita and welcome the back to Hinduism. At present we have about 20 Pracharaks at the village level to convince them to return to Hindu Dharma. Christian Allurement: Now Christian missionaries and Pastors started luring the children to their churches by offering chocolates, pens, pencils, biscuits, and other items. The innocent children not knowing the differences between Hindu philosophy and Christian, they to the churches and slowly brainwashed to accept Jesus is the real God. On one side we are working to welcome those Christians back to Hinduism, on the other side we are losing the children to Christian hatred, violence, intolerance, and terrorism. Hinduism emphasizes the divine nature of movable and immovable objects and considers the universe as Vasudhaiva Kutumbam (as family). Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is planning to start BALA SAMSKAR on Sundays as well as weekdays to impart the richness of Hindu Heritage that enunciated peace, harmony, inclusiveness, self-improvement, and universal welfare. Our Sunday School will discuss contributions Hinduism mage in the fields of education, mathematics, astronomy. Arithmetic, quantum mechanics, metallurgy, surgery, medicine, dentistry, infinity, zero. Cosmology, literature, yoga and meditation and other subjects. Our children will recite Hindu invocation dealing with universal kinship and well-being: Om sarve bhavantu sukhinah. Sarve santu niraamayaah. Sarve bhadraani pashyantu. Maa kaschid dukhbhaag bhavet. “May all beings be happy. May all beings be healthy. May all beings experience prosperity. May none in the world suffer.” Topics to be Discussed in Bala Samskar Kendra/ Sunday School Some of the topics the teachers may cover in their classes. Depending on the time, they can select as they see fit. Not required to cover all of them in any given class. 1) Chant Om three time. 2) Ganapathy Prayer. 3) Guru Stotram – Importance. 4) Surya Namaskar. 5) Moral Story. 6) National Heroes who sacrificed their lives for Bharat. 7) Scientific nature of Hinduism and how it is different from other two religions 8) Importance and Uniqueness of Hindu Temples 9) Hindu Customs and Traditions 10) Gurus of India 11) Coming Festivals 12) Stories from Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas. Etc. 13) Teach 1-2 Bhagavad Gita Verses 14) Teach 1-2 Bhajans 15) Homework for Children 16) Hinduism and other religions - Compare 17) Yoga Postures and Meditation 18) Visit nearby Temple and have Darshan 19) Expose them with government hatred to Hinduism and how to protect it. 20) Prasadam Sponsor a Village School In order to conduct Sunday schools in villages and some neighborhoods in Cities, we are planning to employ one teach for each village who will spend 2-3 hours on Sunday and also 2-3 days in a week to have evening classes to engage the students and teach not only the value of Hinduism but also help them in their homework.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi – 26 Christian Families Returned by Performing Pujas, Homas, and Abhishekam in Anantapur Area

Alexander Hamilton (1755 - 1804) was the father of the united states, who founded the first American political party and the nation's financial system. "I believe the Gita to be one of the major religious documents of the world. If its teachings did not seem to me to agree with those of the other gospels and scriptures, then my own system of values would be thrown into confusion, and I should feel completely bewildered. The Gita is not simply a sermon, but a philosophical treatise." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to welcome back 26 Christian families into Hinduism. Sri Gopi Chary and his associates went to each house and distributed the flyers and talked about the richness of Hinduism and why they should return to their original religion. The three Pracharaks have been going to villages with a mission to highlight the richness of Sanatana Dharma. They are going to the Christian families and giving information about the differences between Christianity and Hinduism. They are sharing the 4-page document about the rights of Hindus and how to encounter Christian aggression. 26 Christian Families Returned to Hindu Dharma Twenty-six Christian families listened to Gopi Chary and our Associates about the richness of Hindu Dharma volunteered themselves to return to Hinduism. They have agreed to practice Hinduism and expressed interest in participating in Hindu rituals. They came from FIVE different villages in and around Hanimapalli Village in Kalyandurg Mandalam in Anantapur District. 1) Everybody was invited by applying Tilak on their forehead. 2) Everybody participated in doing Ganapathi Puja to remove all the obstacles for their transition to Hinduism. 3)      Everybody performed Ganapathi Homa, Navagraha Homa, Rudra Homa, and Lakshmi Narasimha Homa. 4)      They offered Purnahuti to the Fire God following the completion of all the pujas and Homas. 5)      In the presence of Agni, all returnees from Christians have taken an oath to remain in Hinduism. They have openly acknowledged that made a serious mistake in leaving Sanatana Dharma. After they converted to Christianity, they faced more problems than before. That we're all duped into Christianity with many false promises. 6)      They expressed their gratitude to GHHF and Sri Gopi Chary and the other three Pracharaks for making it possible for them to return to Hindu Dharma. 7)      They have promised that they will cooperate to work with GHHF to introduce other Christian families to start the process of Ghar Waapasi. 8)      All of them were given Upper garment, blouse piece, Kumkum Bharini, kalasam to do daily puja, Sita Rama Parivar picture, one flag with Ram Parivar on it, and one bracelet. 9)      Representatives from different organizations attended and delivered inspiring speeches for them to be loyal and lead moral and ethical life and not get influenced by deceptive tactics of Christians. 10)   Sri Srinivasa Reddy from Samarasata Seva Foundation, Sri Srikanth and Sri Ramesh from RSS, Sri Satya Prakash from VHP gave enlightening speeches to all the assembled people. 11)   More than 350 people in the community witnessed the Ghar Waapasi program where these 26 families returned to Hinduism. 12)   Sri Gopi Chary told the assembled people that they should do Gau Puja every day and protect cows by stopping them from being taken to slaughterhouses. 13)   All assembled people were served Maha Prasadam. Before they convinced them to return to Hinduism, our Pracharaks visited Christian families one at a time, standing in an open area in front of the houses, explaining the reasons for reconversion. They were inspired by Sri Gopi Chary’s assessment and were convinced to get converted. He also explained how Christian pastors and nuns trap Hindus when they are either in distress or in financial hardships. In fact, these people had their own experiences of being exploited by them. As many scholars stated that the only classical culture that was not uprooted by other religions is Hindu culture – traditions, norms, ethics, talents, festivals, and practices developed over so many centuries. He says it was a miracle that Hindu culture survived even after so many centuries of Christian and Muslim onslaught. Swami Vivekananda visited the USA around 1897 and stated that the Christians are throwing so much mud against Hindus in India. Christians in the USA are responsible for that kind of viciousness. The church is only interested in squeezing money from the people and not helping them to grow spiritually. 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 22 people so far. More people we hire more villages can be covered to welcome them back and 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: To expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi in Cheruvumandara Palli Village in Chinnagoti Mallu Mandalam near Tirupati– Talked about Deceptive Tactics.

Klaus K. Klostermaier  (1933-till date), German scholar, said “Hinduism, after all, is indigenous, it has shaped Indian society and mentality for thousands of years, it is flexible and, in the opinion of most Hindus, far superior in its philosophy to any other religion or philosophy.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Cheruvumandara Palli Village in Chinnagoti Mallu Mandalam near Tirupati near Tirupati Our Associates K. Reddappa and K. Subbanna have been actively involved in visiting several villages in various villages and Mandalas in Chittoor District. They talked to the Hindus in the village about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity and sought input from Hindu activists. Our mission is twofold: one is how to stop the conversion and the second is how to bring those Christians back to Hinduism. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches. Our Pracharaks talked about the deceptive tactics they use to convert Hindus into Christianity. Christian pastors are like leeches who want to suck the Hindu customs and try to digest and pretend that Hindu customs and traditions are from Christianity. Innocent Hindus who do not have any knowledge about the longevity of our customs, how long Christianity is in existence, they tend believe the Pastors since they cannot question them.                 Brother Anil Kumar, brother-in-law of CM Jaganmohan Reddy, says that he can cure any ailments, and can stop the rain. He has cured several people with his prayer powers, stopped rain and thunder with power of Jesus. Anil Kumar escaped from a major accident near Jaggaiahpeta in Krishna district. His car was badly damaged in the incident. The injured Brother Anil Kumar was immediately rushed to the MJ Naidu Hospital in Vijayawada where he was given initial treatment. YCP leaders arrived at the hospital after coming to know about the accident. There is no major injury to the CM relative. Anil Kumar has been an active Christian missionary and evangelist. He is holding gospel meetings all across for several decades. The YCP leaders had a big relief after they found out that Anil didn’t suffer serious injuries. Dr MJ Naidu held necessary tests and later discharged Anil. Then the question is why did he not ask Jesus to stop the car? Why did he go to the Hospital to get treatment? Why did he ask Jesus to cure the injuries? Does it mean that he is faking all these cures and stopping rains are mere deceptive tactics to make money and live-in palaces? Has the Christianity become a billion-dollar business enterprise? The Dharma concept plays an important role in conducting our way of life. It is everybody’s dharma to perform their activities. Every position in society is valued. Our responsibility is to fight to remove adharma. Wherever there is adharma, dharma must be enforced even if it means waging a war. Inaction is not an option for anyone who upholds the concept of dharma. Arjuna decided not to wage war against his fellow cousin brothers, his Gurus, Bhishma Charya and other kin and kith. He was stuck with an amoral conundrum and totally confused about his dharma. He seeks Bhagawan Krishna’s advice.  Krishna says that in order to protect humanity from adharma, he has to do what dharma dictates.    Bhagawan Krishna says, “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.  As Thomas Paine stated that that the Bible teaches us to rape and be cruel. They distributed a 52-page small book and explained the most immoral and indecent statements from the Bible. In Bible, Jesus says that one should not love the world. If they love the world, they do not love the Father. Jesus is so jealous that he did not want Christians to love his own Parents. Mathew 10:36-37 " A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; Anyone who loves a son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me." Mathew 10:36-37 Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and money.                While talking to the Hindus, our Pracharaks highlighted the most preposterous statements regarding incest and sexual promiscuity in the Bible. They read out some verses from Bible and read aloud to sow few seeds of doubt about what they call the holy Bible. 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 20 Pracharaks working at the ground level. More people we hire more villages can cover 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 Chapiri Village in Kalyandurgam Mandalam Visited 84 Christian and Hindu Families individually in Anantapur District.

Mark Twain (1835 - 1910), American author said:   "So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked. India had the start of the whole world in the beginning of things. She had the first civilization; she had the first accumulation of material wealth; she was populous with deep thinkers and subtle intellects; she had mines, and woods, and a fruitful soul.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to resume the Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur District. Sri Gopi Chary Garu and his associates have been conducting Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur District. They visit each house and distribute the flyers and talk about the richness of Hinduism and why they should return to their original religion. They have taken all precautions required during this pandemic. Under the guidance of Sri Gopi Chary, three Pracharaks have been going to villages with a mission to highlight the richness of Sanatana Dharma. They are going to the Christian families and giving information about the differences between Christianity and Hinduism. They are sharing the 4-page document about the rights of Hindus and how to encounter Christian aggression. Visited Chapiri Village Sri Gopi Chary and his three associates went to Chapiri Village in Kalyandurgh Mandalam in Anantapur District and talked to majority of Hindus families about the richness of our culture dating back to ten thousand years or more and how much it was developed and how so many intellectuals and famous people applauded the depth of our culture. They also went to Christian families in SC Colony. Whenever they visit Hindu Families, our Pracharaks seek their assistance to identify the area and provide few contact numbers. With the assistance of Hindu families, our Pracharaks approached 84 Christian families and invite them back to Hindu Dharma. Since our mission is twofold, we try to educate the Hindus about the Bible so that they would not be easily get converted to the deceptive Christian methods. They visited Christian families one at a time, standing in an open area in front of the houses, explained the reasons for reconversion. They were inspired by Sri Gopi Chary’s assessment and his knowledge about Bible and Bhagavad Gita He also explained how Christian pastors and nuns 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. Large number of  religious conversions in India by Christian missionaries through deception are not reported in mainstream news. Media is playing politics to make sure that the minorities are protected at the expense of Hindus. Christians do almost everything to convince the gullible Hindus by adopting Hindu customs and traditions. In recent days, Jesus Christ as a yogi is introduced as one of the main conversion ploys in the country. Many Christians in the USA criticize Yoga and oppose it and ask the Christians not to do any yoga.  They call yoga a satanic practice. But in India, Christian missionaries depict Jesus Christ as a Yogi to deceit naive people. If yoga is a satanic practice according to the Bible, then how come Jesus Christ be a yogi? Christian missionaries operate on a very subconscious level. They also distributed a 52-page book that contains the comparison between Bhagavad Gita and Bible. Many passages in the Bible are an insult to humanity. It makes people to be slaves. It even justified the slavery enabling the Property Owners to bring Africans from Africa and made them slaves with no rights. They could kill them even for a single mistake since the Property Owners consider them as their property. Many Christian scholars and the former Presidents of USA also criticized the brutality, violence, incest, cruelty, and extramarital relations. Friedrich Nietzsche said that Christianity the single great curse, the single great innermost depravity, the single great instinct of revenge, for which no means is poisonous, secretive, subterranean, small enough--I call it mankind's single immortal blemish. Howard Taft says that there is no divinity in Christ. Why would he make such a statement? Non-believers burn eternally 2 Thessalonians 1:9 They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, Revelations 20:10 And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, into which the beast and the false prophet had already been thrown. There they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Revelation 14:10 he too will drink the wine of God's anger, poured undiluted into the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented in fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured along with the false prophet, who on its behalf had performed signs deceiving those who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. Both the beast and the false prophet were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

GHHF Welcomed more than 75 Christian families into Hinduism in Madanapalli in spite of Heavy Rains.

Dr Arnold Toynbee (1889 -1975), British Historian said:  “So now we turn to India. This spiritual gift, that makes a man human, is still alive in Indian souls. Go on giving the world Indian examples of it. Nothing else can do so much to help mankind to save itself from destruction. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to start Ghar Waapsin in Madanapalli in Andhra Pradesh. Realizing the massive effort of Christians to convert innocent Hindus, we approached Sri A. Harish Sharma to go to the Christian community and explain the richness of our culture. He along with other two gentlemen – Kesavalu and Nagaraj, commenced the work. In fact they have been doing this for some time. With our association, they are able to expand their efforts and welcome about 75 Christian families back to Hinduism.                 The original name of Madanapalli was “Maryada Ramanna Puram”. Officially the name was changed to Madanapalli in 1850. Rabindranath Tagore translated “Jana Gana Mana” into English and set the music in Madanapalli at Besant Theological College which was established by Dr Anne Besant. Sri Jiddu Krishna Murti, a philosopher was from this village. Similarly, Sri M also hailed from Madanapalli. Sri A. Harish Sharma was born and raised in Madanapalli. From childhood he was very much interested in Sanatana Dharma. One day, his friend and classmate, Deen Dayal Reddy took him to RSS Karyalaya and explained their work. Whenever he was passing through Bus Station and other focal points, whenever there was a problem, Muslims and Christians used to come in large numbers and protect their members even though they were wrong. In the case of Hindus, only a handful of them used to come and support their fellow Hindu. It used to make him sad and angry. Then he moved to Hyderabad, and he noticed that the Muslims are always united if they are wrong.                 He started working in a company where they used to look at him strangely for wearing traditional dress and made you feel that western dress is the appropriate way to dress. He quit the job and went around looking for a job. He went to Venkata Ramana colony and went and saw Saraswathi Veda Patasala and joined as Acharya. He realized one day no Brahmin could enter Owaisi Puram. If they go to that section of the city, they throw stones at them. Then one day he went to Surat in Gujarat where there is more unity among Hindus.                 He realized that there is a lot of discrimination among Hindus themselves. Dalits are not being treated properly. Thus, many of them are being allured by Christians. He went to Warangal, where he noticed that even Hindus do not support their own people. In the name of secularism, they try to support Muslims even though they force some Temples not to worship. When a Hind was killed by Muslims, secularists did not take any action against Muslims. Government looks the other way.                 He started realizing how Christians have been converting Hindus and what kind of allurements they offer, how they convince the people who are sick, how they loan money to the needy with intention of converting and other tactics. Similarly, Muslims used to say that they are going to convert India into an Islamic country.                 He realized soon that if Hindus do not get united, we will lose the country to other religions. If we look at what is happening in West Bengal, it is time for Hindus to wake up. Hindus are not realizing the potential danger. He is praying Lord Hanuman on a regular basis to protect our country from Muslim terrorism and Christian Conversion menace. In August he came in contact with Global Hindu Heritage Foundation and started realizing the importance of Ghar Waapasi. Since that time he has been working closely with GHHF.                 He is trying to talk about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and how our culture survived so many centuries in spite of more than ten centuries of foreign rule. Then slowly talking to the Christians and explaining the reasons Christians are after Hindus to convert. It is like business for them. More people they convert the more money they make. He tried to point out that once they are converted, they must pay ten percent of their income to the Church. That money the Pastor uses to live in mansions and live a very luxurious life. The pastors go around the villages and convert innocent Hindus by observing their weaknesses, needs and health problems.     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.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi – Talked to Both Christian and Hindu Families about the Status of Women in the Church in Visakhapatnam.

“The religious superstition is encouraged by means of the institution of churches, processions, monuments, festivities....The so-called clergy stupefy the masses....They befog the people and keep them in an eternal condition of stupefaction.” Leo Tolstoy Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in one of the S C Colonies in Visakhapatnam city. Our Pracharaks Sri K Srinivas Raju and Y Santosh came to know that Christian missionaries are going around  S C Colony and trying to persuade them to convert to Christianity. They showed the book that compared the Bible and Bhagavad Gita. They pointed out the verses in the Bible that demean women. For example,  Numbers31: 17-18 says” So now, kill all the boys, as well as every woman who has had relations with a man, 18but spare for yourselves every girl who has never had relations with a man.”   They stayed for about three hours talking about Bhagavad Gita and Bible and the intolerance of Christianity. Few examples were given about the role of women in Church: "A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety."[1Tim. 2:11-15] "Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy,"[Eph. 5:21-27] They talked to several Hindu family members about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. They informed about the tactics Christians use to entice Hindus and how they trap them when they are in vulnerable situation. Our Associates Kollu Srinivasa Rau, Santosh (John Paul was his name before he returned to Hinduism) 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. The Christian pastors are following the teachings of Jesus who says that he is a jealous God.  But all these Pastors claim that Christianity is a religion of peace. If Jesus is a God and decides our lives, how do we explain the differences among so many Christians. Why some people are poor, and others are rich. Some people have health problems all the time while others live with no major health problems. If Jesus is the savior, why did he create so much disparity in society. If Jesus is compassionate and loving, why is he creating so many problems for so many people even among Christians, Is Jesus a biased, jealous and hateful person?         Our Associate Santosh (Who was known as John Paul) returned to Hinduism after practicing Christianity for several years. He started asking questions about some of the verses in the Bible. Pastors were questioning his faith and were blaming him for asking the questions. In order to silence him, they said that they would train him as Pastor.  He thought he should read the Bible and know its contents before getting training to become a Pastor. He was surprised and shocked by the Bible and realized that the Bible is  bloody, voluptuous, violent, and killings. It contains rapes, incest, extramarital affairs and stoning to deaths. In the Bible you hear people talking about Jesus totally ignoring them and not helping them or come to their rescue. 1 King 11:3-4 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines—and his wives turned his heart away. 4For when Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and he was not wholeheartedly devoted to the LORD his God, as his father David had been. Deuteronomy 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. Deuteronomy 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold. Many of them asked about the Pastor's assertion that they may be burning eternally in fire if they do not convert to Christianity. Our Associates informed them that God is not a killer and would not punish. God’s character is all loving, all compassionate, and all forgiving. So, they do not have to fear God to return to Hinduism if they desire to do so. 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.

[GHHF] Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) update for the weekend of November 21.

Romain Rolland (1866-1944)  "If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India." "Let us return to our eagle's nest in the Himalayas. It is waiting for us, for it is ours, eaglets of Europe, we need not renounce any part of our real nature...whence we formerly took our flight." Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) were started as planned in twenty-eight locations/ villages. About 20 Teachers were selected in the agency area under the guidance of Sri Sai Mansa Datta Swamy. On 14th, he called all the teachers who have agreed to conduct the classes for children in about sixty-five villages  and conducted workshop. He talked about the importance of teaching the basic values of Sanatana Dharma, the morals, the Gurus, festivals , historical figures, stories from scriptures and other topics. Due to heavy rains, eight classes in around Tirupati were cancelled. In other three locations, we conducted about twenty-six schools on November 21, 2021. 1)     Agency Area in Pendurthi (Coordinator: Sri Sai Manasa Datta) 2)     Visakhapatnam in Vamby area (Kollu Srinivas Raju) 3)     Tirupati (Bangaram Amaraveni) (No Classes due to heavy rains) 4)     Hyderabad. (Lakshmi Nivas) We are planning to conduct similar classes in Kakinada area, Madanapalli and Anantapur. We will update as we make progress. What is Bala Samskar? Why Conduct Sunday Schools? ·        Parents are not equipped to transmit the timeless wisdom of Sanatana Dharma ·        Schools are teaching anti-Hindu sentiments and I fact demeaning our Gods and Scriptures; They are in fact glorifying the religions that believe in violence, terror, killings, deceptive conversion tactics, hatred, etc. ·        Our Hindu Temple  are under the Government control whose mission is abuse our Temples, loot our money, employ other religious people to undermine the sacredness of our Temples. ·        Christians are taking advantage of our inaction by wooing our children with incentives such as chocolates, Biscuits, pens, books, and money where they learn to hate Hinduism Our children are our strength. They are our future. They are going to be our Ambassadors to Hindu Dharma in preserving, protecting, and propagating our ancient civilization. For centuries, we as Hindus failed to transmit the knowledge to our next generations. With no knowledge about our faith and with no pride in the universality and non-violence of Sanatana Dharma, our children as well as adults have become targets for Christians to convert. They have used plethora of deceptive tactics to woo our Hindus to Christianity as we are not able to defend our religion and also not able to question the barbaric nature of the Bible. We have become defenseless and not equipped with no knowledge about our heritage.                Knowledge is power. GHHF would like to impart the knowledge that will be useful for them as well as for the future generation. Why Bala Samskar Planned?                Bala Samskars / Sunday Schools are being planned  for two purposes: 1)     To teach about the richness and glory of our Sanatana Dharma. It is eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in our scriptures, and its universal appeal to the humanity. 2)     Also prevent the Christian aggressive missionary threat to Hinduism. Children are lured away by the Christians bribing them with many unnecessary needs to attract them. They give Chocolates, pens, pencils, and promises of many material things and invite them to Churches and start brainwashing them to believe in their religion and teach them to hate Hinduism. As many of you aware that GHHF initiated Ghar Waapasi to welcome back to Hinduism those that were either lured, forced, or intimidated to get converted to Christianity. Christian Conversion is going at a rapid pace. With the support of the present Andhra Pradesh government, Christians have become emboldened to openly attacking the Hindu Temples, destroying the ancient Images, and burning the chariots. They even demanding the breakup of Bharath int two countries. We started with four Pracharaks who responsibility is to explain the differences between Bible and Bhagvad Gita and welcome the back to Hinduism. At present we have about 20 Pracharaks at the village level to convince them to return to Hindu Dharma.                Christian Allurement: Now Christian missionaries and Pastors started luring the children to their churches by offering chocolates, pens, pencils, biscuits, and other items. The innocent children not knowing the differences between Hindu philosophy and Christian, they to the churches and slowly brainwashed to accept Jesus is the real God. On one side we are working to welcome those Christians back to Hinduism, on the other side we are losing the children to Christian hatred, violence, intolerance, and terrorism. Hinduism emphasizes the divine nature of movable and immovable objects and considers the universe as Vasudhaiva Kutumbam (as family).                Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is planning to start BALA SAMSKAR on Sundays as well as weekdays to impart the richness of Hindu Heritage that enunciated peace, harmony, inclusiveness, self-improvement, and universal welfare. Our Sunday School will discuss contributions Hinduism mage in the fields of education, mathematics, astronomy. Arithmetic, quantum mechanics, metallurgy,  surgery, medicine, dentistry, infinity, zero. Cosmology, literature, yoga and meditation and other subjects. Our children will recite Hindu invocation dealing with universal kinship and well-being: Om sarve bhavantu sukhinah. Sarve santu niraamayaah. Sarve bhadraani pashyantu. Maa kaschid dukhbhaag bhavet. “May all beings be happy. May all beings be healthy. May all beings experience prosperity. May none in the world suffer.” Bala Samskar / Sunday School Some of the topics the teachers may cover in their classes. Depending on the time, they can select as they see fit. Not required to cover all of them in any given class. 1)  Chant Om three time. 2) Ganapathy Prayer. 3)  Guru Stotram – Importance. 4) Surya Namaskar. 5)  Moral Story. 6) National Heroes who sacrificed their lives for Bharat. 7) Scientific nature of Hinduism and how it is different from other two religions 8) Importance and Uniqueness of Hindu Temples 9) Hindu Customs and Traditions 10)  Gurus of India 11) Coming Festivals 12) Stories from Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas. Etc. 13) Teach 1-2 Bhagavad Gita Verses 14) Teach 1-2 Bhajans 15) Homework for Children 16) Hinduism and other religions - Compare 17) Yoga Postures and Meditation 18) Visit nearby Temple and have Darshan 19) Expose them with government hatred to Hinduism and how to protect it. 20) Prasadam Sponsor a Village School                In order to conduct Sunday schools in villages and some neighborhoods in Cities, we are planning to employ one teach for each village who will spend 2-3 hours on Sunday and also 2-3 days in a week to have evening classes to engage the students and teach not only the value of Hinduism but also help them in their homework. Teacher’s salary, teaching material, Snacks, and Prasadam would cost approximately $1200 Per each Sunday School. You want to Start Sunday School in your Village, please call us.

[GHHF] Ghar Waapasi – Welcomed 23 Christians back to Hinduism from Tekkal Mandal in Medak District in Telangana.

Helen Ellerbe (The Dark Side of Christian History) “The Church, throughout much of its history, has demonstrated a disregard for human freedom, dignity, and self-determination. It has attempted to control, contain, and confine spirituality, the relationship between an individual and God. As a result, Christianity has helped to create a society in which people are alienated not only from each other but also from the divine.” 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 23 Christians from Tekkal Mandal from Medak District back to Hindu Dharma. They come from three Villages – Palyancha Gramam, Daadipalli Gramam, and Barthipur Gramam.  Seven Christians from MB Church, nine from Lord Christ Church, and seven from Jesus Christ Church.  They 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. 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. A 52-page book comparing the verses in Bible and Bhagavad Gita is also distributed. Christians have less tolerance toward other religions – especially Hinduism. For example, the Ten Commandments states that "You shall not recognize the gods of others in My presence. You shall not make yourself a carved image nor any likeness of that which is in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the water beneath the earth. You shall not prostrate yourself to them nor worship them, for I am the Lord, your God." Bible God is jealous, selfish, hateful, envious, intolerant, and abusive GOD. He is anything but tolerant, patient, as the Police office claimed. Christians tend to demonize Hinduism and do not respect any other religions. Intolerant Christians say that all other religions are incomplete, and their followers go to hell and burn eternally for not accepting Jesus. Non-Christians will either go to hell or get condemned.  They will not be saved. Bible God Jealous Isaiah 34: 6-7 The sword of the LORD is bathed in blood. It drips with fat—with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah, a great slaughter in the land of Edom. And the wild oxen will fall with them, the young bulls with the strong ones. Their land will be drenched with blood, and their soil will be soaked with fat. Isaiah 47:3 Your nakedness will be uncovered and your shame will be exposed. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one." Hosea 9:7 The days of punishment have come; the days of retribution have arrived--let Israel know it. The prophet is called a fool, and the inspired man insane, because of the greatness of your iniquity and hostility Isaiah 26:21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. 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 hearing 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-Christian’s experience of being a Christian. A fifty-two-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 twenty 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 - $3500.00 per year.

GHHF 20 Kilometers Pada Yatra to awaken Hindus and Celebrate Karthik Purnima with Lights; Inspirational Speeches to instigate Hindus Unity

Houston Smith (1919 – 2016) “Enter Hinduism’s myths, her magnificent symbols, her several hundred images of God, her rituals that keep turning night and day like never-ending prayer wheels. It is obtuse to confuse Hinduism’s images with idolatry, and their multiplicity with polytheism. They are 'runways' from which the sense-laden human spirit can rise for its "flight of the alone to the Alone". Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that Ajay Varma organized a 20 kilometer Pada Yatra from Gadimetta Village to Sri Kankamaha Lakshmi Temple. Our Associate, Ajay Varma, who volunteered to participate in this effort has a long history of propagating the richness of Hindu Dharma. He has a very rich background in Hindu Dharma. He has deep knowledge of the traditions and has the ability to explain all our customs. For example, he can talk about the significance of Tilak on the forehead, and the reason to wear bangles, nose buds, earrings, toe rings, and so on. People get surprised to know the inner meaning of these age-old customs. From childhood, he worked as a priest in their heritage Hanuman Temple and used to do all kinds of Pujas, conduct homas, Satyanarayana Pujas, and many festivals bring bringing everybody to these festivals. He is very enthusiastic about propagating and preserving Sanatana Dharma and gives lectures at different Temples depicting the greatness of our culture and age-old traditions. He also has experience of knocking on the doors of Christian families in and around Kakinada. He met them wherever he was able to approach and talk to them. Some of them he met at their houses, and some met in the neighborhood. Kartik Masa Celebrations                He was talking about the importance of Karthik Masam and Karthik Purnima and the significance of Lighting the lamps all around the Temple as well as in the houses. He also talked about the importance of preserving and protecting our Heritage. He reminded the sacrifices our national heroes made to ensure that we enjoy the fruits of democracy and the richness of our Sanatana Dharma. We should take pride and ensure our rights are protected. We should shun our indifference, apathy, and lethargy. We should actively participate in preserving our culture. They should not remain silent when our Dharma is being attacked.             Vijay Varma reminded us about the Temple attacks and how our Hindus are not getting organized to express their sentiments and anger. In general lakhs of people attend the Antarvedi (Radham) Chariot festival where the devotees pull the Chariot and celebrate the festival. But when the Chariot was burnt about a year ago only a handful of people came to express their concern and anger. He admonished them to wake up and take interest in preserving our heritage.             The participants in the 20 Kilometer  Pada Yatra have been singing Bhajans all the way through. He explained how bhajans will purify the mind and inspire them to be spiritual. Our history is replete with so many religious leaders who dedicated their lives to glorifying the Gods and Goddesses.  Sri Swami Sivananda Saraswati, Mataji Geetha Vani, Mataji Vara Lakshmi, and others participated and spoke about the need to rekindle our efforts to protect Sanatana Dharma. They also spoke about the greatness of mother and how she is the backbone of our culture and the role they have to play in preserving our heritage. Why offer Arthi to Sacred Rivers on Karthik Purnima. For Hindus, lighting Deepam, worshipping rivers, and Karthik Purnima have special meaning and significance. Hindu scriptures are replete with information on all these rituals. India is rich in customs and traditions. Everything is connected, everything has meaning, everything has relevance, everything is divine, and everything has importance. Deepam is light. It is lit every day in many houses in the morning and evening. Symbolically, light evokes Chaitanya (consciousness). It is considered the source of knowledge, remover of darkness, eradicator of ignorance, and germinator of higher ideals. Whenever the knowledge is awakened, the negative Vasanas are slowly eliminated while new seeds (Vasanas) are sown for this and the next life. Also, the light always burns upwards implying that one should grow upward better living. Hindus also light the lamp before starting any auspicious event. In fact, Hindus call it Divya Deepam – Divine Lamp. WE NEED YOUR HELP Ghar Waapasi is going uninterruptedly. We also celebrate the festivals, support them and also inspire them to conduct all the festivals. We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more pracharaks who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi. We have employed twenty people as of the end of July. 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 - $3500 per year.

[GHHF] Nationalist Hub Sri Sai Krishna Interviews Dr. Prakasarao Velagapudi

What is the Purpose of Ghar Waapasi, Bala Samskriti and Protecting Grama Devatas? Sri Sai Krishna asked probing questions about the need for organizing Ghar Waapasi, Sunday Schools for Children, and providing Puja Kits to Grama Devats to celebrate Karthik Purnima. Prakasarao mentioned that rampant Christian conversion of Hindus into Christianity without any check prompted Global Hindu Heritage Foundation to initiate Ghar Waapasi to welcome back to Hinduism those who converted to Christianity through deception, allurement, and intimidation. So far 22 Pracharaks are working on the ground level. In order to protect our Children, GHHF started Sunday Schools (Bala Samskar) in about thirty locations to enrich the minds of our youth and prevent them from Christian trappings to take them to church. Also, we need to revise the Grama Devata culture in as many villages as possible helping them to celebrate Karthik Masam. He said that it is every Hindu's responsibility to protect the richness of Sanatana Dharma to ensure peace, tolerance, and respect toward other faiths.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-oyjMNjZBA

GHHF Additional Priests and their families were honored in Vijayawada, Bengaluru and Kochin As many of you know that Global Hindu Heritage Foundation in collaboration with SGS Avadhuta Datta Peetham of Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji honored the 116 Priests with their wives at AGS Avadhuta Datta Peetham in Vijayawada on June 2 (Tuesday). We are grateful to Sri Chandra Mohan, who has taken the full responsibility to identify 116 priest, make necessary arrangements, decorate the hall, plan the seating arrangements, and follow Covid – 19 guidelines. He has done a great job by paying attention to every details. Additional 18 Priests were honored in Vijayawada, Bengaluru and Kochin. On this great Occasion, each priest was honored with Rs 5000. F other wives, each one was given one Sari with Blouse, one Fruit, Turmeric, Kumkum, Beetle leaves with nut powder, two Masks and Rs 11. Main program started at 10:00am and continued till 1:00pm.Because of the fear of spreading Coronavirus, all the Hindu Temples are closed. Now, many Pujaris / Hindu Temple priests are having a hard time meeting their basic needs. Many of them do not have any salaries either from the government or from the private Temples. Most of them do not have enough savings to pay their rent and electricity. Furthermore, many private temples do not have enough income to pay their salaries. Consequently, many Pujaris do not have enough resources to meet their daily expenses to provide meals to their families. Recently, newspapers wrote about some priests begging on the streets as they could not provide meals for the family. That news pained so many people and some organizations are helping them financially. They are facing a grim and grave predicament. It is time to help these Priests to meet their monthly expenses with our generous donation. It is time to acknowledge their invaluable service to Hind Temples and Hindu Dharma. It is time to protect their dignity and self-respect. {{album_57}}

[GHHF] 750 Tribal and Poor Ladies mostly Christians were honored in Visakhapatnam

[GHHF] 750 Tribal and Poor Ladies mostly Christians were honored in Visakhapatnam Global Hindu Heritage Foundation in Collaboration with Sri Saidatta Manasa Peetham honored tribal and poor ladies in Vishakhapatnam area on Sunday (May 24th). Sri Sai Datta Swamiji went to few villages and tribal areas and invited them and explained the procedure. As some of you may be aware that many of them have been converted to Christianity.                GHHF is very much interested in reconverting the Christians into Hindu fold. Many of these people in these villages were converted with some inducement and by deception. Not knowing any thing about our culture and due to their lack of education, they converted to Christianity. Christianity prospers where there is ignorance. Christianity declines where there is high literacy. In  European countries, Christianity is declining and may be about 10 percent may be going to Churches.  Similarly, in USA also the number Christians attending the churches are declining year by year.                  It is our duty to look at the rate of conversion and how deceptively they are converting gullible and innocent Hindus is well documented. Many of the converted Christians have no idea why they are converted and have no clue about what they are talking. The Christian pastors have created so much fear among these people that Satan will haunt them if they go back to their ancestral religion.                Out of 750 ladies who came to function about 600 ladies are Christians. Sri Saidatta Swamy explained that they will be received by applying Tilak on their forehead and will also offer Prasadam for everybody to consume.                All the ladies who came to the ashram were given Kumkum, Turmeric, 5KG Rice, and one Saree. They were all given Prasad before they left. May of them even commented that Christianity does not belong to us. It is foreign. Our culture is ours to follow.                             We are very happy to see so many Christian ladies coming and receiving our Prasadam,  applying Tilak and chanting Jai Sree Ram three times. {{album_54}}
