"It was the promotion of the ancient Indian tradition of religious tolerance, a tolerance which owes so much to Hinduism’s own pluralism...This tradition provides a basis for Hindus and for Indians who believe in many of the many other religions of this country to live with self-respect, in peace, and proud of their national identity.
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in several Villages in Tirupati Mandalam and Renugunta Mandalam near Tirupati. Our Associates K. Reddappa, and Rosaiah have been actively involved in visiting several villages in various villages and Mandalas in Chittoor District. They talked to the Hindus in the village about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity and sought input from Hindu activists. Our mission is twofold: one is how to stop the conversion and the second is how to bring those Christians back to Hinduism. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches.

Our Pracharaks talked about the deceptive tactics they use to convert Hindus into Christianity. Christian pastors are like leeches who want to suck the Hindu customs and try to digest and pretend that Hindu customs and traditions are from Christianity. Innocent Hindus who do not have any knowledge about the longevity of our customs, how long Christianity is in existence, they tend believe the Pastors since they cannot question them.

GHHF Helped renovate Sri Chenchulakshmi Temple near Tirupati

The Grama Devata temple known as Sri Chenchulakshmi Temple is located in Bhadrappa Naidu Colony in Vadamalapeta Mandalam in Chittoor District.  As this Temple was in a dilapidated condition, they approached our Pracharaks to help renovate and do Prana Prathishta.  
GHHF suggested that they would provide needed materials and they should contribute their labor to renovate the Temple. Dr. Anjaneyulu Puppala has graciously agreed to provide necessary contribution for renovation and Kumbabhishekam. Villagers were happy to contribute their labor and with the contribution of about 1.5 lakh rupees, the construction was completed, and the Temple was opened ceremonially by installing the deities and performing all required pujas.

Kumbabhishekam  was done on August 13, 14 and 15February 11, 2022, was a special and auspicious day for all the villagers. Finally, with the guidance, and financial support from GHHF, they are able to go to their Grama Devata Temple and fulfill their dream of building this Temple. 
Sri K Reddappa, Coordinator of our activities and who helped them to build the Temple spoke about the mission of GHHF. In order to preserve our heritage and encourage our Hindus to practice their faith, GHHF helps different projects. The villagers are fortunate that they were able to build this temple. He encouraged them to attend the Temple regularly and encounter the Christian missionaries. 
The Villagers expressed their gratitude to GHHF for standing with them and assisting in all possible ways 
Three Priests – Sri Satish Sharma, Sri Bharat and Sri Hari – performed the Kumbabhishekam as per Agama Sastra guidelines.  Our Guest Dr Sundara Murty from RSS, Sri Prasad from Ramakrishna Mission and Sri Reddappa spoke on the occasion and advised the villagers to take active part in attending the Temples, conducting Bhajans and take children to the Temple frequently.  
    Also, our speakers asked the villagers to be cognizant of Missionaries and requested them to encounter them with our 52 -page book comparing Bible and Bhagavad Gita. They have taken a oath to protect Hindus from Christian menace. 
Tirupati is targeted by Christians
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.

We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more people who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi. We have employed 26 Pracharaks working at the ground level. More people we hire more villages can cover to welcome them back and also create Chaitanya (Awareness) among the students and villagers.
1) Donate any amount to help the Dharma Pracharaks to work at the ground level.
2) Sponsor one Pracharak: In order to expand our base and hire one Pracharak, it would cost approximately $3000.00 per year. We have five anonymous donors who sponsored Assistants.
