Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
"In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavat Geeta, since whose composition years of the gods have elapsed, and in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial; 
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 coordinating and organizing activities in ASSAM– Ghar Waapasi and Bala Samskar and other activities. He was responsible for identifying four Pracharaks – two males and two females. He also identified 12 teachers for  Bala Samskar. He even found three villages where Bala Samskar Kendras are being sponsored by them. GHHF would like to express our appreciation to Samrat Ji for his passion and determination to coordinate and supervise these activities.
Bhagavad Geeta Quiz
Bala Samskar Kendras, Silchar organized Bhagwat Geeta- Quiz to make the students aware of knowing the importance of this scripture. Seventy-two (72) students from 11 Government Schools participated in this program. The main intention behind organizing this program is 
1. To reach Non-Bala Samskar Students for whom we couldn't open Centre's and those are studying in Government schools.
2. To circulate the essence of Geeta amongst Children.
After the program gold, silver and  bronze medals were distributed amongst students who secured 1st , 2nd and 3rd position and a certificate of participation given to all 72 students. 
Swami Vigyananda Maharaj of Shakar Matt and Mission graced the occasion  with his presence.

How Does Bhagavad Gita Guide Youth?
Youth is the future of the humanity, wealth of the nations and source of inspiration for the existence of humanity. Shaping them and guiding them properly, not only enrich their own lives but will be better citizens of the world who can fashion the future. The present generation across the globe are experiencing stress, pressures, troubles, tribulations, uncertainties and anxieties.
Advocating Bhagavad Gita is an antidote for all the contemporary ills and evils. We know that Bhagavad Gita will purify their hearts, destroy their negative thinking, help develop healthy outlook toward life, build strong personality to counter peer group pressures, will help develop concentration of mind, and inspire positive attitude toward future.
Bhagavad Gita is powerful, thought provoking, illuminating, enchanting, enlightening and life chanting book. This is the essence of the scriptures. It is a living manual, a powerful guide and an eternal message for the young and old of any caste, creed and religion; and teaches the technique of perfect living. In today’s world, Children face numerous challenges in the schools, with the friends, and at homes. Children in foreign countries are in constant struggle to fit in the “foreign” society without losing their parental culture. In this material world, Bhagavad Gita teaches us to overcome the challenges, resolve the impediments, harmonizes the material and spiritual world, develop set of life changing values, instill self-confidence, develop concentration of mind, overcome negative thoughts, evolve positive outlook toward life, develop strong personality, and recognize the richness of ancient wisdom. It imparts us the highest morals and ethics that enable us to integrate them in to our daily life without being carried away with temptations, jealousy, enmity, sensual thinking and illusionary unrealistic expectations. Bhagavad Gita will help us to be realistic and help us to discriminate between right and wrong.
By reading and digesting Bhagavad Gita, seeds will be sown in the young minds to cultivate good values and virtuous ethics, and to remain calm when faced with confusion, despondency, and uncertainty in life. They will be introduced to the concepts of individual responsibility, selfless action, belief in God, hard work, discipline, importance of Guru tattva, permanence of the soul, impermanence of the body, reincarnation, and freedom of choice that would enable them to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life. This compelling, powerful and important book has all the answers for every human being who is aspiring to live in this modern world that is beset with uncertainty and stressful environment.
Bhagavad Gita would equip the children, youth and adults to cope with the challenges they face in life, trials and tribulations they encounter daily; problems they encounter in the modern world; frustrations they may be bumped into the competitive world of work; and adjustment they must make with their friends and family members. This ancient wisdom will help them to differentiate between the dharmic and adharmic values, right and wrong, trivial and significant. It will help them to face the hectic, hurried and materialistic world without being distressed. Bhagavad Gita would teach the high morals that remain with them forever to find meaning and purpose in life.
While addressing the youth at “Gita Champions League,” Radha Swami of ISKCON said that, “Our children are our future. We need to protect them, nourish and develop their minds. However, television, movies and the Internet together expose the children to violence, pornography and insanity, as a result of which they can easily get influenced and succumb to negative thoughts and actions.” However, the teachings of ‘Bhagwad Gita’ can influence young minds and give a positive and morale-boosting exposure, help students remain focused and assist in taking ethical decisions.”
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.
