Count Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949) was a Belgian writer of poetry

"Is it possible to find, in our human annals, words more majestic, more full of solemn anguish, more august in tone, more devout, more terrible? Where, from the depths of an agnosticism, which thousands of years have augmented, can we point to a wider horizon? At the very outset, it surpasses all that has been said, and goes farther than we shall even dare to go. No spectacle could be more absorbing than this struggle of our forefathers of five to ten thousand years ago with the Unknowable, the unknowable nature of the causeless Cause of all Causes.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to welcome four Pracharaks who have committed to work at the ground level and visited three villages to talk about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and how it is different from Christianity. The discussion started with one of the Priests named Sri Gopi Chary whom we know for the last four years. Near Anantapur, about ten kilometers away, GHHF helped build Sri Rama Temple and performed Pranaprathishta. Sri Gopi Chary is very accommodating and forward-looking. He came to the Dalit Village performed all pujas, tied Rakshas to all Dalits, gave prasadam and offered theertham irrespective of their caste or status. He became extremely popular in the community.

            From April 1st, under the guidance of Sri Gopi Chary, three Pracharaks have been going to villages with a mission to highlight the richness of Sanatana Dharma. They are going to the Christian families and giving information about the differences between Christianity and Hinduism. They are sharing the 4-page document about the rights of Hindus and how to encounter Christian aggression.

            Sri Gopi Chary and his three associates met in Bhavani Shankar Temple in Kota Street one Vysya Family and few Dalits were welcomed back into Hinduism. Our Pracharaks talked about the richness of our culture dating back to ten thousand years or more and how much I was developed and how so many intellectuals and famous people applauded the depth of our culture. They were inspired by Sri Gopi Chary’s assessment and convinced to get converted. He also explained how Christians trap Hindus when they are either in distress or in financial hardships. In fact, these people had their own experiences of being exploited by them. Vysya member said he was baptized by the Pastor who asked him to remove his sacred thread (Jandhyam).  He agreed to return to Hinduism and got the Jandhyam ceremony performed by our Sri Gopi Chary. These families participated in the Shudhi program whereby they returned to Hindu Dharma. They promised that they would follow Hindu Dharma and would not allow any pastors to change them anymore.
