“Benares is holy. Europe, grown superficial, hardly understands such truths anymore.....I feel nearer here than I have ever done to the heart of the world; here I feel every day as if soon, perhaps even today, I would receive the grace of supreme revelation...The atmosphere of devotion that hangs above the river is improbable in strength; stronger than in any church that I have ever visited.” 

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform you that our Associate, Ajay Varma, who volunteered to participate in this effort has a long history of propagating the richness of Hindu Dharma. He has a vibrant background in Hindu Dharma. He has deep knowledge of the traditions and has the ability to explain all our customs. For example, he can talk about the significance of Tilak on the forehead, and the reason to wear bangles, nose buds, earrings, toe rings, and so on. People get surprised to know the inner meaning of these age-old customs. From childhood, he worked as a priest in their heritage Hanuman Temple and used to do all kinds of Pujas, conduct homas, Satyanarayana Pujas, and many festivals bringing everybody to these festivals. He is very enthusiastic about propagating and preserving Sanatana Dharma and gives lectures at different Temples depicting the greatness of our culture and age-old traditions. He also has experience of knocking on the doors of Christian families in and around Kakinada. He met them wherever he was able to approach and talk to them. Some of them he met at their houses, and some met in the neighborhood.

Karthik Masa Celebrations

Ajay Varma, our Pracharak, is traveling to several villages during this Karthik Masa to explain the significance of our traditions and customs.

What is Mangala sutra?

Talking to a large group of women who attended the nearby Temple to celebrate Karthik Masa by lighting the lamps and also drawing the picture of Devi, Ram Parivar, and Siva Parvati on the floor and decorated with flowers and lamps all around the picture.

He asked how many of them were wearing Mangala Sutra and started talking about the importance of the Mangala Sutra and why women should wear it. Mangal sutra is a combination of two words - mangal and sutra. The word mangal means auspicious and Sutra means thread – together Mangal sutra means an auspicious thread uniting the souls.

A Mangal sutra is a symbol of marriage, and the wife is meant to wear it all her life indicating the love and commitment the husband and wife have towards each other.

In South India, people believe that the mangal sutra needs to be tied in 3 knots with each knot carrying significance – loyalty towards the husband, dedication to the family, and devotion to the lord. While tying the knot, the Priest will chant mantras to represent the purpose of life. Each knot represents three purushardhas – dharma, artha, and kama. Both husband and wife are expected to work together and jointly to achieve these aims of life. When it comes to Moksha, it is an individual journey, hence no knot is tied.

According to Ayurveda – the ancient Indian science – pure gold has a number of healing properties, and the most important of them is improved heart health. Ayurveda reveals that wearing a Mangal sutra close to the heart (touching the skin) attracts cosmic waves from the surroundings and aids heart functioning. It is also considered that these waves help in maintaining a happy, healthy relationship between the husband and wife.

The health benefits of wearing a Mangal sutra include –

Develops the immune system.

Regularizes blood flows and keeps her fresh and energetic.

Regularizes blood pressure.

Stimulates the Surya-Nadi or the Sun-channel in the woman’s body and awakens the inherent energy in it.

Apart from the health benefits, it is also believed that a Mangal sutra having mustard-sized black beads in it wards off the evil while upholding the sanctity of the marriage.

Christian Ladies attended and expressed experience with Pastors

            A number of Christian ladies also attended the Karthik Masa celebrations, lighted the lamps, and prayed in the Temple for their welfare. Knowing they are attending the Hindu celebrations; they are putting a lot of pressure on them to visit frequently. If they do not stop attending the Hindu festivals, they tell them that they go to hell and burn eternally. Ajay Varma mentioned that God is compassionate and loving, he would never condemn anybody to eternal for praying to other gods. God cannot be jealous like a human being. God is beyond jealousy and hatred.

               He distributed a four-page flyer that explains the rights of Hindus and how to encounter Christians who falsify Hindu Dharma, and how SC community people lose their reservations once they leave Hinduism. Similarly, he is distributing fifty-two page small book which describes the differences between Bhagavad Gita and Bible. As many people know that Bible contains many verses that are demeaning to humanity, promote incest, encourages sexual promiscuity, violence, killings, stoning to death, cruelty, smashing of Idols, and other such bloody statements.

               Ajay Varma is visiting as many Christian families as possible either individually or collectively and talking of the atrocities committed by Christians around the world. Many Christians do not know what is written in the Bible. When he read some of the passages from the Bible many Christians are shocked. Thus, he is creating doubts in their mind about the holiness of the Bible.
