“Hindus have a greater respect for the spoken word than do people in the West. Not only every word is a mantra, but practically every sound and every word in the language is called akshara in Sanskrit, which means “the indestructible”. Akshara is also a name for God. A true mantra should be sung not spoken. Indian scriptures call Brahma the Creator “the first singer”. Our world is said to have sprung from the mantra he sang. In the West, these ideas are probably utterly foreign, and yet there are traces of similar teachings.

1. Brochure Updating our activities at the Ground Level in Five States in Inda.( 4/1)

GHHF started these programs at the ground level to make some difference: 1)  Ghar Waapasi: In August 2020 GHHF started Ghar Waapasi (Welcoming back the converted Christians) with the intent to stop the conversion of Hindus to Christianity. 2)  Bala Samskar Kendras: Our children are our future. If we can enrich the richness of Hinduism, they will remain Hindus. They will never be lured by deception and allurements. 3) Renovation of Grama Devatas: To revive the Grama Devata culture, to enable them to visit their local Deities and inculcate faith in the concept of Goddesses and Gods.

5. Bala Samskar Kendras –  demonstrated amazing skills drawing the pictures to reflect the celebration of Ugadi (4/5)

While random drawing can help hone your focus, drawing specific items or ideas can help you remember them better. In another study cited in an article on Inc.com, participants were asked to either write or draw words from a list. Those who drew the words had a higher retention rate than those who wrote down the words. “Drawing what you have understood from a reading passage, drawing the science experiment you have just done or drawing the detail of an autumn leaf are all examples of engaging with the same learning from a different angle,” Adoniou says

The wind god Vayu also played a role in the conception and birth of Hanuman. Some texts identify Hanuman as an incarnation of Shiva, but Hanuman is best known for his role in the epic poem and sacred text the Ramayana, “Rama’s Journey.”
