Sir John Woodroffe (1865-1936)
“In India there has been intellectual and spiritual freedom – the most valuable of all. This is evidenced by the great variety of religious and philosophical opinion in this country, Rationalism Theism, Atheism and so forth, and the existence of a large number of varying religious communities. The history of Europe on the contrary is marked by intolerance and abominable persecution. The “liberty loving nations of the West” have been in the past greatly, and still are to some extent, behind India in the matter of intellectual and religious freedom.”
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to inform the consistent and persistent attempts to organize Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur District. Sri Gopi Chary Garu and his associates visit each house and distribute the flyers and talk about the richness of Hinduism and why they should return to their original religion. They have taken all precautions required during this pandemic.
Under the guidance of Sri Gopi Chary, three Pracharaks have been going to villages with a mission to highlight the richness of Sanatana Dharma. They are going to the Christian families and give information about the differences between Christianity and Hinduism. They are sharing the 4-page document about the rights of Hindus and how to encounter Christian aggression.

Second Batch of EX-Christians performed Celebrated Navaratri and Performed Abhishekam

Sri Gopi Krishna Chari organized Navaratri Program in Brahmaiah Swamy in Hanimareddy Palli Village. This is a specially arranged event solely for Ex-Christians who performed Panchamruta Abhishekam to Kasireddy Nayana Swamy (One of the very powerful and famous Avadhuta in the area, Anjanaeya Swamy and Annapurneswari. Also,  they have performed Rudrabhishekam and Kunkumarchana to Durga Mata. They also participated in Ashtottarna nama to Devi.
    The devotees were welcome with Namaskarama and also by applying Tilak on their forehead. Each of the new welcomed Hindus were allowed to do Panchamrutam Abhishekam to with their hands to Lord Hanuman offered new clothes and did puja.
    Following Abhishekam, Kumkumarchana and Puja, they did Pradakshina to the Temple chanting Devi names. Then they also did Mangalaharthi to all the presiding Devatas. More than 120 People came to participate in the program.
Importance of Kumkum Archana
Kumkum is given tremendous importance in the lives of  Hindus. In the olden days, both Hindu men and women gave importance to Kumkum and equally applied Kumkum as a part of daily rituals. If one looks at why Hindus wear Kumkum and the importance of Kumkum, many scientific and religious reasons are attributed.  
The primary reason to keep Kumkum on the forehead is to soothe and activate the Ajna chakra which is located slightly above and between the eyebrows. 
When one presses the middle part of the eyebrows while applying Kumkum, it energizes pineal and pituitary glands enormously. Applying Kumkum makes it easy to attract spiritual vibrations that are present in nature. 
Kumkum opens one Ajna chakra and prevents energy loss, thus filling them with refreshing and positive energy throughout the day.
Sri Gopi Chary explained the significance of Sharad Navaratri, why we celebrate and its significance to the individuals and to the society.
