"Ancient rishis made claims so cosmic that even modern physics seems only to be catching up with them and realizing after every scientific breakthrough, that the ancients were there long before them! Even as recently as a century ago, the West was still reeling under the impact of the discovery of geologists that the earth was formed eons ago, and not in 4004 BC. as theologians had determined. 
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to update our activities pertaining to Bala Samskar Kendras. As you are aware that all Hindus should reflect on their own commitment to protect Hinduism, protect our children from being exploited by Christians, to stop the conversion through deception and allurement, and also bring the converted Christians back to Hinduism,
    Bala Samskar is such an attempt to protect our children being exploited by Christians. It is time to act and see what we as Hindus are doing to stop the erosi0on of our Hind population and also to see how our children can be protected from being lured to the Churches.
What is Bala Samskar?
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 the 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 a 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 any knowledge about our heritage.
The Story of Shibi 
The Baka Samskara teachers taught about the story of Shibi which is found in Vanaprastha parva of Mahabharata. This story is taught all over India about the generosity of a king. 
There was once a very kind and generous king called Shibi. One day he was sitting on his palace terrace when a dove flew straight into his lap, and lay trembling there. “Grant me refuge!” pleaded the dove to the king. “Fear not, little dove, for I will protect you,” said the king. 
Then a hawk arrived, in pursuit of the dove. “Give me my dinner,” said the hawk to the king. “I cannot allow you to eat this dove,” said King Shibi, “for I have granted him protection.” “Then what am I supposed to eat?” asked the hawk, “I am starving and will surely die if I don’t get a meal soon. And my family will starve too, if I cannot bring this dove to them.” 
The king offered the hawk all kinds of alternative foods, but the hawk refused, saying “I only eat fresh meat.”
 “Then have some of my flesh,” said the king. The courtiers cried out in alarm. “Bring some scales!” commanded the king, and they brought out a huge set of scales and placed them in the centre of the terrace. On one side of the scales the king placed the dove, who was still trembling with fear. Then King Shibi took his sword and began slicing pieces of flesh off his own thigh and placing them on the other side of the scales, aiming to equal the weight of the dove. But however much flesh he added to the scales he could not equal the bird’s weight. It was very strange. Despite the wailing of his courtiers and the extraordinary pain of his open wound, the king kept slicing. Eventually, unable to equal the dove’s weight, the king climbed up onto the scales, declaring to the hawk: “Eat me! Spare the dove!”
 At that moment the birds transformed. The dove revealed himself as the god Agni, god of the fire. The hawk revealed himself as the king of the gods, Indra. “We came to test the extent of your goodness,” Indra declared, “and we are more than satisfied!” Indra healed the king’s wounds and the two gods disappeared, leaving all the humans astounded by the events.
