"The body of knowledge -- scientific, faith-based, and experience-based -- that has been accrued on the nature of mind, consciousness, and human behavior, and the number of practical methods that have been specifically identified to work with one’s own mind is without comparison. The Sanskrit language itself contains a massive lexicon of words -- far more than any other historic or modern language -- that deal specifically with states of mental cognition, perception, awareness, and behavioral psychology."

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association with Sri Saidatta Manasa Peetham has been planning to organize this Ghar Waapasi in the Vishakhapatnam area. Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swami and his disciples went to many villages and talked about the richness of our culture knowing that they became Christians not because of the message of the Bible but because of their financial circumstances, health-related issues, deceptive interpretation of Hindu scriptures, and demeaning the multiplicity of Gods and Goddesses.

74 Families – about 300 Christians-  returned to Hindu Dharma in Agency Area

A remote village known as Seshu Bandla in the agency area is located in Koyyuru Mandalam in the newly created Alluri Seetharamaraju District. Sri Swamiji has been visiting this village for more than two years. It is a very remote village which is very difficult to even reach. There are two churches in the village – basically, it is a big hut, not a real structure. The pastor used to come every Sunday and had sermons and collect money and leave. Except for three families, all of the families were going to the church.

The heads of three families who did not become Christians used to be priests for three different Grama Devatas located in the village. They insisted that the Devis told them not to get converted to Christianity. The names of the Devis are Nukalamma, Ishwaryamm, and Shanku Devi talli.  Thus, they remained Hindus even though the rest of the village embraced Christianity.

               When the Pastor came to know about Sri Swamiji’s efforts to welcome back these Christians to Hinduism, Pastore got a stay order preventing Sri Swamiji from entering. With the help of the local MLA, that order was lifted. Sri Swamiji raised funds and with the help of Dana Dharma Foundation and Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, a new Temple was built. Lord Hanuman Statue was installed. All the families participated in this very elaborate ritual and every member of the family actively engaged in every ritual involving Prana Pratishta.

               Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swami has been trekking these remote villages for several years. He has a very good knowledge of the area, its valleys, its accessibility, and the right time to visit the village. Many of these villages cannot be easily reached as there are no proper roads. GHHF appreciates his dedication and persistence to work in these remote villages and bringing these Christians back to Hinduism. The Christian Pastore reached these villages a long time ago. Almost all the villages in the Agency area have Churches built or converted houses into Churches. They started working on children enticing them with many incentives like chocolates, pens, pencils, books, and other items. Even though they were not Christians in the beginning the missionaries started demeaning Hinduism, criticizing Hindu Gods, abusing Hindu customs, and creating hatred toward Hinduism. Slowly the Pastors lured them into Christianity.

Sri Sai Datta Mansa Swamy has been visiting this village for more than three months and started talking to you and seeking their help to help the needy. Then he started talking about the difference between Hinduism and Christianity. He emphasized the importance of the scientific nature of our Hindu customs and how our families maintain unity and look at the welfare of all the people irrespective of their religion. He gave several examples of hatred that are found in the Bible and compared them with Hindu scriptures that emphasize love, compassion, and peace.

Sri Swamiji goes to several small villages in the Agency area on a regular basis. Some of the villages cannot be reached by road. They are in remote places and Christians converted some of them. Pastors come to these remote villages once in a while, not on a regular basis. Swamiji visited these villages and talked about the differences between Hindu culture and Christianity. He started off by asking all those assembled Christians to chant Om Namo Narayanaya and Om Namah Sivaya three times in each mantra.

With persistence and determination, Sri Swamiji welcomed about 300 Christians (74 families) Christians back to Hinduism and honored them with Sarees, God’s picture, Kumkum, Turmeric, copper ring, and other items. appropriately inviting them spiritually and by conducting religious ceremonies.

Any rational, objective and logical person would know how an illiterate person who cannot read or write even a single sentence becomes a Christian overnight and throws away the Hindu Gods' pictures and even steps on them to please the pastors. Christian Pastors are the cruelest and most deceptive people waiting like vultures to snatch away the Hindus.

The Bible is full of contradictions and also offensive to humanity irrespective of one’s faith. Sri Swamiji was able to convince the Youth about God’s qualities such as omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. Hatred as we see in the Bible is not the quality of any God.

Example of Women’s role in the Church and the Family.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35

The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says. If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church.

Ephesians 5:22-25

Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

1 Peter 3:1

In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives,

We have provided enough information from the Bible about the abuse of idols, how Jesus propagated division in the families, how the churches create fear among the followers, and how it was sexually perverted. Sri Swamiji and his Associates have collected so much information about what is happening in the churches, how they are discriminating against the converted Dalits, how they are made to sit in the back seats, and how they are forced to contribute 10% of their income. They even showed how the Pastors live, their houses, and their lifestyles.
