“The planet needs quite desperately a sense of moral order, spirituality and an ethical compass. The Indian religious and philosophical traditions can provide a great deal of all three. It was in a recent conversation with an Indian religious guru that I was also pleased to discover I could adhere to his religious tenets, while maintaining my secular convictions. No imam or priest would allow me that.”

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association with Nitya Satyam has been organizing Ghar Waapasi in the Telangana area. Lakshmi Nivas and his volunteers 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.

Submitted Petition to EO  to Protect  Sri Katta Maisamma Temple lands

Lakshmi Nivas and his team came to know that some of the Endowment lands were occupied illegally and constructed houses on the property. They prepare a letter requesting the Executive Officer of Sri Katta Maisamma Temple located at Tank Bund in Hyderabad that the Endowment lands must be protected from illegal occupation and steps must be taken to remove illegal structured from the property. 

They went as a delegation with specific information and requested the EC to monitor the lands and see that they are protected and used for Temple activities.

 Hindus offer prayers to Goddess Katta Maisamma at the temple during the time of the Bonalu festival. Katta Maisamma popularly known as Amma also located at Turkyamjal. People praise her mainly for the purpose of Happiness, peacefulness, and prosperity. Enjoy the Miracles of Turkyamjal Katta Maisamma. Good visits to this temple can solve any problem quickly.

The Katta Maisamma Temple of Hyderabad is principally dedicated to the Mother Goddess Maisamma. The Goddess is a manifestation of Shakti or strength. The faithful believe that worship of the Goddess in the Katta Maisamma Temple imparts power within a person by virtue of which he or she may have the strength and resolve to overcome all adversities in life.

The word Katta denotes a bridge across a river or a lake. The Golconda Patel family built the Katta Maisamma Temple during the construction of the Tank bund to procure the Goddesses' favor and blessing for the well-being of people crossing the bridge.
