"I was searching for the truth. I went through some books on yoga and discovered that Hinduism is a very good religion. It is open-minded. It teaches you about God. It also teaches you about the science of the soul. Later I went to Rishikesh and stayed with Sivananda's ashram, the Divine Life Society. There I found that Hinduism is a straightforward religion that revealed the truth.” Swami Ghanananda Saraswati

The families in these Villages and townships were incredibly happy to have these signs imprinted on their doors and walls. In fact, many families called and requested our volunteers to come and imprint the signs. They have the choice to do either one of the signs or both.

4. An article on “Seven initiatives of the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation that will be remembered by generations to come” published in Medium magazine by S. Rajavardhan. (April 4)

The internet has enabled documentation, analytical prowess, and connectivity, revealing the threats faced by the Hindu community. Visionaries like Shri Rajiv Dixit began campaigning against this in the 1990s, while in the new millennium, community leaders like Dr. VV Prakash Rao have taken initiatives to unite the community through actionable efforts, notably through the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation. This article explores seven initiatives crucial for the present time, and with the GHHF leading these initiatives on the ground, their positive impact will be remembered for generations to come.


5. Kajuluru Villagers submitted a petition to the District Collector of Kakinada to take action against an unauthorized, illegally built Church. (April 5)

A request written by the people of Kajuluru village to the Honorable Kakinada District Collector,
In our village, a person named Aradadi Chinakatababu, a pastor belonging to Ravannapalem village of Tallarevu Mandalam came to our village and built a church in our village without obtaining permission from the authorities. He started demeaning Hinduism and insulting the Hindu deities and hurt the sentiments of Hindus. He started reading passages from the Bible and idol worship and saying that the Hindus Gods are only stones, and they should be demolished. In this matter he has been creating hatred and enmity among different religions thus creating disharmony in the village.


6. Bala Samskar Kendras – Students learned to chant Ramaskandam Slokam to avoid getting bad dreams at night. (April 6)

The Ramaskandam mantra is one such mantra. It is a Hanuman mantra that is usually chanted or listened to before you get to sleep, to keep nightmares away.
The mantra also invokes the spirit of Bheem and Garuda to bolster your inherent courage.
Before going to sleep, one ends the day with this prayer. One chants this mantra invoking Lord Hanuman and asks for forgiveness for wrong acts that one may have knowingly or knowingly committed during the day. We commit so many improprieties in our thinking, speech, and bodily actions during that day. We want to make sure that those thoughts and actions would not disturb our sleep and prevent having bad dreams. Indirectly we are praying for peaceful sleep, sweet dreams, and good night.

9. Special Report on Love Jihad - GHHF Assam working tirelessly to curb Love jihad and protect Hindu Girls. (April 9)

Everybody talks about Love Jihad, but no one is taking this pain to work against PFI or Muslim Organizations to curb it. Probably, the GHHF Assam chapter is the only one that talks less and works more on Love jihad. Since our work is twofold, we do feel that awareness and action should go simultaneously. The following are some of our activities/ achievements organized by Assam Chapter.


10. Aditya Hridayam was chanted by hundreds of Bhaktas on the court yards of Varaha Lakshmi Narasimha Temple and Sri Surya Narayana Temple in Simhachalam Andhra Pradesh. (April 10)

GHHF volunteers cleaned the area around the Temple and planted a few shrubs and flower beds. Over a period, people started to come to seek the blessings of Surya Narayana. Hundreds of people come and have darshan. As the people come to have darshan of Surya Deva, GHHF is distributing Aditya Hridayam pamphlet to chant. Many people are participating in this effort by sitting in front of the Deity and chanting Aditya Hridayam.
GHHF decided to have the devotees chant Aditya Hridayam because of its importance in content and benefits one accrues. This hymn is one of the great hymns on Surya Bhagavan.
