Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is extremely happy to recognize the need to preserve and protect the traditions and customs in the villages. We feel that many villagers identify themselves as their Gramadevatas and pray for their blessings to protect them from possible impending dangers. This is our effort to revive the sentiments and faith in Gramadevatas, who once played a significant role in unifying the entire community.

Grama Devatas means village Goddesses/Deities installed in the villages to protect the town, save the crops, prevent calamities, prevent various kinds of ailments, and bless the villagers with health and wealth as we know that many Grama Devatas are located in a small place in the community or village. An overwhelming majority of Grama Devatas are Goddesses with very few memorable experiences. Dharma-Thakkur is a god of fertility and disease in West Bengal. Another example is Kala Bhairava, a fierce form of Lord Shiva is the Gramadevata in the rural villages of Maharashtra, where he is referred to as Vairavar.

               Following Temples were delivered Pooja Kits by B Sri B Narayana Rao to celebrate Karthik Purnima by lighting the earthen lamps:

1)     Sri Sivalayama in Kollurupadu Village SC Colony
2)     Sri Brahmam Gari Gudi in Kollurupadu Village SC Colony

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Ghar Waapasi is continuing as usual in a number of Villages all across Andhra and Telangana with 22 Pracharaks visiting the Christian families to welcome them back into Hindu Dharma. We appreciate it if you can help in hiring more people who can go to these villages to do Ghar Waapasi. 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.
