Friedrich Maximilian Müeller (1823-1900)
"The Upanishads are the.....sources of .....the Vedanta philosophy, a system in which human speculation seems to me to have reached its very acme." "I spend my happiest hours in reading Vedantic books. They are to me like the light of the morning, like the pure air of the mountains - so simple, so true, if once understood." 
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that we are conducting about 200 Bala Samskar Kendras in five States in India – Assam, Telangana, Andhra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. We have many active Hindus who are helping in different ways to ensure our children are taught about the richness of Sanatana Dharma. Each school is teaching different things and at the same time they follow the required syllabus to ensue all the students learn things that are common to all the students. It is challenging as the ages of the students varied from one school to another.
Who is Veer Savarakar?
Vinayak Damodar Savarkar (28 May 1883 – 26 February 1966), was an Indian politician, activist, and writer. Savarkar developed the Hindu nationalist political ideology of Hindutva while imprisoned at Ratnagiri in 1922.He was a leading figure in the Hindu Mahasabha. He started using the honorific prefix Veer ("brave") since he wrote his autobiography. Savarkar joined the Hindu Mahasabha and popularized the term Hindutva (Hinduness), previously coined by Chandranath Basu, to create a collective "Hindu" identity as an essence of Bharat (India).
Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, commonly known as Swatantryaveer Savarkar was a fearless freedom fighter, social reformer, writer, dramatist, poet, historian, political leader and philosopher. He remains largely unknown to the masses because of the vicious propaganda against him and misunderstanding around him that has been created over several decades. This website attempts to bring the life, thought, actions and relevance of Savarkar before a global audience.
Savarkar first advised Hindus not to be ashamed to say that they were Hindus
“Do not think that it is inferior or anti-national to say that you are a Hindu. Do not be ashamed to take pride in worshipping Shriram, Shrikrushna, Chhatrapati Shivaji, Maharana Pratap and Guru Govind Singh. There has to be one country in this galaxy for Hindus and they should prosper in their country. For that, pay attention to their purification (taking back converted Hindus) and their unification ! Purification work is not only religious but also political.” – Veer Savarkar
If we forget Shriram then …….. !
Veer Savarkar had immense reverence for Shriram and Shrikrushna. He used to say that both were army-Chiefs and supreme leaders of this country. In 1909, he celebrated Vijaya-Dashami in London. Remembering the work done by Prabhu Shriramchandra during his era, he said, “When Shriram gave up his kingdom, superficially to obey his father’s word, but mainly for eradication of demons, He did a great job. When Shriram attacked Lanka and got ready for the unavoidable and righteous battle, that of slaying Ravana, His work was superior. But when he left Seeta in forest even after she proved herself, as per the saying ‘Aaraadhanaay Lokasya Munchato Naasti Me Vyathaa’, His work as an incarnation was supreme. He gave up His personal duty and duty towards His family for His duty as a leader of people and a King. O Hindus, till you keep Rama’s work as His incarnation and His idol in your heart, there is hope of your regress easily getting stopped. Till the son of Dasharath, brother of Lakshman, master of Maruti and husband of Seeta is in Hindustan, it is easy to accomplish Hindustan’s progress; but when we forget Shriram, nothing will remain. The Congress rulers have however, forgotten Shriram and none of the literary giants feels like admonishing them. Is it misfortune of this country or regress of the literary acumen ?
The greatness of India in the eyes of Veer Savarkar
According to Savarkar, the proponent of Hindu Mahasabha, was of the opinion that this land has been sanctified with the holy water from the tireless penance of Saints like Vasishta and Namdev. The prose of Maharshi Vyas and Bhagavadgeeta of Shrikrushna are the epitome of literature.
Ramayan is the nourishing ksheersagar. Great women like Damayanti, Savitri, Gargi and Seeta were born in this land. Researchers like Kanad, Bhaskar, Aryabhat, Varahamihir; seers like Mahavir, Shankara, Ramanuj, Nanak, Dayanand, Vivekananda became one with the great history of the land.
Awareness created by Savarkar keeps large part of area under Hindus rule during partition of Hindustan !
In 1937, Savarkar’s house arrest from Ratnagiri was lifted and he was granted permission to take part in politics; but till then, freedom fight under leadership of Gandhi had moved towards undivided Pakistan, instead of undivided Hindustan. Even in such situation, Savarkar showed such bravery that one would feel that he was in the category of ‘Tadaatmaanam Srujaamyaham’. Savarkar was the lone fighter but was full of inspiration from history and traditions, moral values and will power. He stopped the speedy train of Indian freedom fight running on rails towards Pakistan with both his hands and lifting the engine, brought it back to the rails of undivided Hindustan. Savarkar was fighting alone on four fronts against the British Government, Congress, Muslim League and misled Hindus who were confused with the non-violence principle. In this turmoil, however, some part of this great country slipped creating Pakistan and the rest of the country however, stayed available to Hindus. Savarkar was neither tired nor disheartened. He was busy in convincing the helpless, tired Hindus that with one shock, the newly created Pakistan can be destroyed.
Credit of independence given to even unsaid prayers …..… !
India’s freedom does not belong to a single party, any individual or select group. It belongs to the common man. I will go even further and say that those who didn’t take active part in either armed or unarmed secret or open freedom movement; the credit for this national victory also goes to our millions of brethren who had empathy in their heart and made heartfelt prayers expressed or otherwise. – Veer Savarkar, 1952
Promoting words from a foreign language in lieu of one’s own is akin to adopting children after murdering your own!
