"India was one of the earliest of the great civilizations and it defined the goals of civilized life very differently from the West. The West raised individualism, materialism, rationality, [and] masculinity as its ideals. India's great tradition insisted on non-violence, renunciation, the inner life, [and] the female as pillars of civilization. And through all the triumphs and disasters of her history she hung on to that ideal, an eternal quest to identify humanity with the whole of creation, a unity in diversity ... History is full of empires of the sword, but India alone created an empire of the spirit."

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Kandulavari Palli Village in Chandragiri Mandalam. Mandalam and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Our Associates K. Reddappa and K. Subbanna have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in various villages and Mandalas in Chittoor District. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches.

They were able to convince 10 families to return to Hinduism. They were honored with Upper garment for men and Blouse pieces for women along with God’s pictures, the Hanuman flag, and other items.

As Michael Wood said that India defined the goals of society which is totally different from the West. India concentrated on non-violence, vairagya (renunciation) masculinity – superiority of masculinity over femininity. Women are given high pedestal in the society. The saying Matru Devo Bhava speaks to the boundless and all encompassing, loving power of the mother. Rig Veda says “O Mothers! Purify us with your compassion, understanding and enlightenment. The women cleanse us all from all our sins, corruption, and defects. We come out firm, pure and noble from their blessed company.” This is contrary to the respect given in the West. Similarly,  India has always tirelessly worked toward establishing the country emphasizing the spiritual aspect of the humanity rather than highlighting the extension of the empires with the sword.

 As many of you are aware that the Christians are moving into the sacred city of Tirupati and its periphery in the Chittoor District. They are planning to start converting within a radius of 50 kilometers. Christians are moving into this area to convert as many people as possible to make Tirupati a sacrilegious place instead of keeping it as a sacred place.

Although many Hindu activists are doing many things, their efforts have not infiltrated into the villages where the conversion is taking place on a large scale. As Hindus concentrate on their intellectual endeavors, Christians are concentrating on conversion. It is time for all the intellectuals and activists to pause for a few minutes and look at the ground realities. Our intellectual endeavors and activists’ protests are not reaching the villages where conversion is rampant. We cannot ignore or turn away from what is happening on the ground.
