In the family of religions, Hinduism is the wise old all-knowing mother. Its sacred books, the Vedas, claim, 'Truth is one, but sages call it by different names.' If only Islam, and all the rest of the monotheistic 'book' religions, had learned that lesson, all the horror of history's religious wars could have been avoided. Which other religion has its God say, as Krishna does in the Bhagavad Gita, 'All paths lead to me.' 


Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is exceptionally happy to inform that Bala Samskar Kendras (Sunday Schools) were conducted in 69 Villages in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Assam.

Bala Samskar Kendras are being organized in the following villages/locations

Tirupati, Madanapalli, Visakhapatnam Agency Area, Visakhapatnam City, Addanki, Eluru Palem area, Hyderabad, Kandi, and Cachar in Assam. We are planning more Bala Samskar Kendras in Tamil Nadu and also increasing the centers in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

How Many Kendras do we have now?

As of January 30, 2022, GHHF has conducted Bala Samskar Kendras in 69 Villages/ locations. More than 1450 students attended the Kendras.

In this post, GHHF is reporting the Bala Samskar Kendras in Visakhapatnam Agency areas Visakhapatnam City, Addanki, Kandi, and Eluru Pale areas only. In the next post, we will send pictures of other locations.

Why did Bala Samskar Kendras Start?

Our children are our strength. They are our future. They are going to be our Ambassadors to Hindu Dharma in preserving, protecting, and propagating our ancient civilization. For centuries, we as Hindus failed to transmit the knowledge to the next generations. With no knowledge about our faith and with no pride in the universality and non-violence of Sanatana Dharma, our children, as well as adults, have become targets for Christians to convert. They have used a plethora of deceptive tactics to woo our Hindus to Christianity as we are not able to defend our religion and also not able to question the barbaric nature of the Bible. We have become defenseless and not equipped with any knowledge about our heritage.

Similarly, we are still ill-equipped with the true nature of other religions. Violence, terror, killings, rapes, and destruction are advocated by Christianity and Islam. Hindus are the only ones who say that all religions are the same while the other two Abrahamic religions abhor Hinduism and do not have any respect. Both these religions have committed to wiping out Hinduism from the planet. It is time to realize the potential danger to Hinduism and start getting reacquainted with the richness of our heritage and understand why ahimsa, tolerance, inclusiveness, respect for others, and truth can save humanity from extinction.

What is the Purpose of Starting Bala Samskar Kendras?

Bala Samskaras / Sunday Schools are being planned for two purposes:

1) To teach about the richness and glory of our Sanatana Dharma. Its eternal nature, its scientific advances, depth of knowledge in our scriptures, and its universal appeal to humanity.

2) Also prevent the Christian aggressive missionary threat to Hinduism. Children are lured away by the Christians bribing them with many unnecessary needs to attract them. They give Chocolates, pens, pencils, and promises of many material things and invite them to Churches and start brainwashing them to believe in their religion, and teach them to hate Hinduism.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is planning to start BALA SAMSKAR on Sundays as well as weekdays to impart the richness of Hindu Heritage that enunciated peace, harmony, inclusiveness, self-improvement, and universal welfare. Our Sunday School will discuss contributions Hinduism made in the fields of education, mathematics, astronomy. Arithmetic, quantum mechanics, metallurgy, surgery, medicine, dentistry, infinity, zero. Cosmology, literature, yoga and meditation, and other subjects.

What do we teach in these Kendras?

Some of the topics the teachers may cover in their classes. Depending on the time, they can select as they see fit. Not required to cover all of them in any given class.

1) Chant Om three-time, 2) Ganapathy Prayer. 3) Guru Stotram – Importance. 4) Surya Namaskar. 5) Moral Story. 6) National Heroes who sacrificed their lives for Bharat. 7) Scientific nature of Hinduism and how it is different from the other two religions.
