Romain Rolland (1866-1944)

 "If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India." "Let us return to our eagle's nest in the Himalayas. It is waiting for us, for it is ours, eaglets of Europe, we need not renounce any part of our real nature...whence we formerly took our flight."

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform that Bala Samskar (Sunday Schools) were started as planned in twenty-eight 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 sixty-five villages  and conducted 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.

Due to heavy rains, eight classes in around Tirupati were cancelled. In other three locations, we conducted about twenty-six schools on November 21, 2021.

1)     Agency Area in Pendurthi (Coordinator: Sri Sai Manasa Datta)
2)     Visakhapatnam in Vamby area (Kollu Srinivas Raju)
3)     Tirupati (Bangaram Amaraveni) (No Classes due to heavy rains)
4)     Hyderabad. (Lakshmi Nivas)

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

What is Bala Samskar?

Why Conduct Sunday Schools?

·        Parents are not equipped to transmit the timeless wisdom of Sanatana Dharma

·        Schools are teaching anti-Hindu sentiments and I fact demeaning our Gods and Scriptures; They are in fact glorifying the religions that believe in violence, terror, killings, deceptive conversion tactics, hatred, etc.

·        Our Hindu Temple  are under the Government control whose mission is abuse our Temples, loot our money, employ other religious people to undermine the sacredness of our Temples.

·        Christians are taking advantage of our inaction by wooing our children with incentives such as chocolates, Biscuits, pens, books, and money where they learn to hate Hinduism

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 our 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 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 no knowledge about our heritage.

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

Why 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. It is eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in our scriptures, and its universal appeal to the 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 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 attacking the Hindu Temples, destroying the ancient Images, and burning the chariots. They even demanding the breakup of Bharath int two countries. We started with four Pracharaks who responsibility is to explain the differences between Bible and Bhagvad Gita and welcome the 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 slowly brainwashed to accept Jesus is 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 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.”
