Let my every word be a prayer to Thee,
Every movement of my hands a ritual gesture to Thee,
Every step I take a circumambulation of Thy image,
Every morsel I eat a rite of sacrifice to Thee,
Every time I lay down a prostration at Thy feet;
Every act of personal pleasure and all else that I do,
Let it all be a form of worshiping Thee."
 - Verse 27 of Shri Aadi Shankara's Saundaryalahari
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to inform you that we have appointed four Pracharaks and Bala Samskar teachers in and around Cachar City in Assam.  Cachar is an administrative district in the state. The district headquarters, Silchar, is one of the most important business centers of Assam. In 2006, the Indian government named Cachar one of the country's 250 most backward districts out of a total of 640.
                Sri Samrat Dutt from Cachar has been following activities – Ghar Waapasi and Bala Samskar. He has been talking about starting both the programs around Cachar and was willing to do whatever it takes to start these two programs in and around the city. He even identified four Pracharaks – two males and two females. He also identified one Bala Samskar teacher. GHHF would like to express our appreciation to Samratji for his passion and determination to coordinate and supervise these activities.
               
Bala Samskar Kendra Students in Assam dressed up like DURGA MATA 
GHHF Assam -  With the participation of thousands of Hindus, GHHF Assam organized a rally and Hindu Jagran Sabha on early hours of Mahalaya to mark the home comings of Goddess Durga. Bala Samskar students dressed like Durga, Shiba, Kali and performed dances, sang Durga song ,recited and chanted Maa Durga Sthuti. 
Maa Durga Puja is the biggest festival of Hindus in Assam and Mahalaya is celebrated by the devotees of Maa Durga a week before the Durga Puja celebrations begin across the globe. It marks the beginning of Debi Paksha (the era of the goddess) and is observed on the last day of Piru Paksha (the 16-day lunar day period when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors/Pitrus). Mahalaya, therefore, means the arrival of Goddess Durga, and the festival centered around her worship - Durga Puja.
What is Mahalaya? The last day of offering tribute to our departed forefathers, i.e. Pitrupaksha and the beginning of the devipaksha is called Mahalaya. At the time of the cataclysm, when the earth became a great cause-sea, Lord Vishnu laid Anantanag on that sea and fell into a deep sleep.
The last day of Pitru Paksha or Pitrupaksha (a 16-day long period devoted to ancestors) in the month of Ashwina is known as Mahalaya. This day is observed on Amavasya, which marks the end of Krishna paksha. Hindus believe that every year on this day Goddess Durga arrives on Earth. Moreover, this religiously significant day marks the start of the 10-day annual Durga Puja festival in West Bengal. Mahalaya also referred to as Sarva Pitra Amavasya, is being observed on September 25 this year. On Mahalaya, people even prefer listening to the Mahishasura Mardini composition.
Significance of Killing Mahishasura
Besides paying homage to ancestors, the day is commemorated to highlight the power of truth and courage and the victory of good over evil. According to Hindu mythology, it is believed that Goddess Durga was created by the powers of all supreme deities to kill a demon named Mahishasura who is said to have caused destruction on Earth.
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 26 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. Also,  we are conducting 150 Bala Kendras in five States. Support one or more Kendras. 
1) Sponsor on Bala Samskar Kendra for $1000.00
2) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 - $3500.00 per year. We have five anonymous donors who sponsored 9 Pracharaks
