Mark Twain

"Land of religions, cradle of human race, birthplace of human speech, grandmother of legend, great grandmother of tradition. The land that all men desire to see and having seen once even by a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of the rest of the globe combined."

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) was started as planned in 28 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 65 villages and conducted the 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.

Four different locations, 28 Bala Samskar classes were conducted: on November 14th.

1)     Agency Area in Pendurthi (Coordinator: Sri Sai Manasa Datta)
2)     Visakhapatnam in the Vamby area (Kollu Srinivas Raju)
3)     Tirupati (Bangaram Amaraveni)
4)     Hyderabad. (Lakshmi Nivas)

We are planning to conduct similar classes in the Kakinada area, Madanapalli and Anantapur.  We will update you as we make progress.

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.

               Similarly, we are still ill-equipped with the true nature of other religions. Violence, terror, killings, rapes, and destruction are advocated by Christianity and Islam. Hindus are the only ones who say that all religions are the same while the other two Abrahamic religions abhor Hinduism and do not have any respect. Both these religions have committed to wiping out Hinduism from the planet. It is time to realize the potential danger to Hinduism and start getting reacquainted with the richness of our heritage and understand why ahimsa, tolerance, inclusiveness, respect for others, and truth can save humanity from extinction.

               Hundred and hundreds of Western scholars, Nobel laureates, Literary giants, and spiritual titans have applauded the universality of Hinduism, its non-sectarian, non-violent, peaceful, and tolerant philosophy. As Arnold Toynbee stated it is only spirituality and ahimsa that can save the world from self-destruction. Francois Gautier announces that “the knowledge that stands behind Hinduism, can save the world.”

               Knowledge is power. GHHF would like to impart the knowledge that will be useful for them as well as for the future generation.

Why was 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. Its eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in our scriptures, and its universal appeal to 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 are 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 attack the Hindu Temples, destroying the ancient Images, and burning the chariots. They even demanded the breakup of Bharath in two countries. We started with four Pracharaks whose responsibility is to explain the differences between Bible and Bhagavad Gita and welcome them 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 are slowly brainwashed to accept Jesus as 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 a 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

               GHHF will try to impart the richness of Sanatana Dharma, glorious past, scientific advancements, universal message of Hindu scriptures, National heroes who sacrificed their lives for the country, need for Gurus in one’s lives,  relevance and appropriateness of karma and reincarnation, and recent encounters by other religions. We strive to enrich their lives, impart jnana that removes darkness.  Bhagavad Gita says, “Nahi Jnanena sadrusham Pavitra miha vidate.  tat svayam yoga-samsiddhah kalenatmani vindati.” In this world, there is nothing so sublime and pure as transcendental knowledge. Such knowledge is the mature fruit of all mysticism. And one who has achieved this enjoys the self within himself in due course of time.

               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.
