Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803) German philosopher, poet and critic, clergyman

 " mankind's origins can be traced to India, where the human mind got the first shapes of wisdom and virtue with a simplicity, strength and sublimity which has - frankly spoken - nothing, nothing at all equivalent in our philosophical, cold European world."

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to initiate the Ghar Waapasi program in around Pittapuram in East Godavari District. It is a deeply religious place with historical significance. It is regarded as one of the 18 Shakti Peethams. Sri Puruhutika Devi Temple is located within the Temple complex of Sri Kukkuteswara Swamy Temple. Pilgrims take bath in Pada Gaya Sarovar and have a darshan of Devi.

               Pithapuram is also known as the birthplace of Sri Pada Vallabha, the first incarnation of Lord Dattatreya that took place in 1320 AD. SRI PADA SRIVALLABHA is the most powerful Avatara and many people believe that he is capable of destroying the difficulties, losses, miseries, and obstacles occurring in the lives of His dedicated devotees.

In January 2020, numerous Gods and Goddesses were destroyed and even the Gods' pictures on the flexes on the streets were torn down. According to the news reports, some unidentified miscreants used hammers to disfigure cemented idols of Lord Ganesha, Hanuman, Sai Baba, and Durga Mata in the Bajranj temple located in the open shed in Suravarapu street in Agraharam and also destroyed various Hindu god flex banners installed in the open space along the roadside in nearby areas on the outskirts of Pithapuram town.

               We have been looking for Pracharaks in the are to start the Ghar Waapasi program with two aims:

1)     First, we need to make Hindus aware of the threat to our Hindu Temples and how the Christians have been openly attacking our sacred places, and how we can be active and protect our Temples. We are very much interested in making our Hindus about the immoral, nasty, bloody, sexual, rape, and killing verses found in the Bible. So that the information about the Bible will make them defend Hinduism and would not be victims of false narratives about Hinduism by Christians.

2)     The second aim is to make sure that we will make every effort to welcome back those Hindus who were allured to Christianity with so many deceitful tactics. We want to make sure they are aware of what is written in the Bible and appeal to the moral standards Hinduism espouses.

With that aim we have appointed Vinay Ambavarapu who is very talented and enthusiastic about preserving our heritage. He is highly educated. But his passion is to work at the ground level to welcome as many Christians as possible back to Hinduism. He has a particularly good grounding in our scriptures and also recites many Stotras and slokas. He is doing Sahasranama Deep Aradhana every year on the last day of Karthik Masam with a beautiful art with 2000 oil lamps in T.T.D temple Pittapuram. His dream of Lord Venkateswara telling him to do this deep Aradhana prompted him to do it every year. He is assisted by Esubabu who is very much interested in working at the ground level.

Visited Radala Peta

        Our Pracharaks Vinay and Esubabu visited one Devi Temple in Radala Peta village. Similarly, they are visiting other villages also. They are talking about the rights of the Hindus as per the Constitution and the privileges of SC/BC/ST. They mention that if these minorities get converted how they lose their privileges and how they may not receive all the benefits they are entitled. Similarly, they are distributing the 52Page book comparing the verses in the Bible and Bhagavad Gita. That Temple is not attended to and is closed. Convincing the villages, they are able to make the villagers open the Temple. They said that they will help the Temple to function and requested them to open the Temple daily for Hindus to attend.

        Similarly, they talked about the passages found in the book dealing with obnoxious statements found in the Bible.

Exodus 21:23-25

But if a serious injury results, then you must require a life for a life— eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, and stripe for stripe

Deuteronomy 19:21

You must show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, and foot for foot.

Exodus 20:3-4

You shall have no other gods before Me. 4You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in the heavens above, on the earth below, or in the waters beneath.
