"In India, with its vibrant spiritual culture, its armies of ragged pilgrims and its remarkable Vedas raises the possibility that the real origins of civilization could be very different – not driven by economics but by the spiritual quest that all true ascetics of India still pursue with the utmost dedication. "

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to announce that we are conducting 135 Bala Samskar Kendras in five different States. Many of the villagers expressed their appreciation to conduct these classes so that their children would not be exploited by Christians. They are happy to know that their children are learning about the meaning of so many customs and traditions. They were thrilled to see their children come home and do Namaskar for them which was very satisfying. Many parents also mentioned that their children come to know about the meaning of various festivals and know why celebrate them.

In 1908, Sri Aurobindo was arrested in the Alipore Bomb case, which would be a decisive moment. Spending a year in the Alipore jail as an undertrial, much of it in solitary confinement, Sri Aurobindo would undergo a series of spiritual experiences. Later, in his famous Uttarpara speech, he would speak, for the first and only time in his life, about spiritual experiences before the general public of the realisation of the cosmic Divine, and the direct contact with Sri Krishna. Thereafter, his life would be set on the trajectory of transformation.
