BJP manifesto for Loka Kalyanam (Public Welfare); Congress Party and TRS Manifestos for Minority Kalyanam (Muslim and Christian Welfare) for Telangana Elections

Each party has prepared and released the manifesto to announce the positions they have taken to inform the public with the hope that the people will take interest in reading the manifestos and digesting them before they exercise their precious vote to the candidates. BJP stands for the welfare of all the people irrespective of religion or caste. It does not believe in denying the opportunities to Hindus or anybody else at the expense of the so-called minorities. Why should able bodies Christian or Muslim should be given special privileges encouraging dependency, laziness, and lethargy while denying the hard work, intelligence, ambition and drive to succeed. BJP is more interested in preserving, protecting and promoting the samskruti of the country. Every country is known for its cultural, literary, artistic, social and educational heritage. It is the duty of every citizen of the country to take pride in the heritage and see that it is transmitted to all segments of the society.

Each party has prepared and released the manifesto to announce the positions they have taken to inform the public with the hope that the people will take interest in reading the manifestos and digesting them before they exercise their precious vote to the candidates. BJP stands for the welfare of all the people irrespective of religion or caste. It does not believe in denying the opportunities to Hindus or anybody else at the expense of the so-called minorities. Why should able bodies Christian or Muslim should be given special privileges encouraging dependency, laziness, and lethargy while denying the hard work, intelligence, ambition and drive to succeed.  BJP is more interested in preserving, protecting and promoting the samskruti of the country. Every country is known for its cultural, literary, artistic, social and educational heritage. It is the duty of every citizen of the country to take pride in the heritage and see that it is transmitted to all segments of the society. BJP is interested in giving equal opportunity to everyone irrespective of their religion. It does not want to destroy the rich culture that it has inherited for the benefit of few people. Look at the manifestos of each party and decide which one is for the welfare of the public.   BJP Manifesto Promised to distribute cows in villages at the time of festivals, to those who want them. One lakh cows will be distributed. Promised to cancel the surcharge fares by state-run Road Transport Corporation (RTC) buses during festivals such as Diwali. Proposed introduction of Yoga in schools and colleges and setting up a Sanskrit University in the state, besides establishment of a board for welfare of IT sector employees. Promised free transport to those performing Deeksha –religious code of behavior –for those visiting temples such as Sabarimala. Proposed to regulate the sale of liquor in the state, claiming, unrestricted sale has caused social and law and order problems in the state. Total waiver of the tax on petrol and diesel, free online and offline coaching to youth appearing for competitive examinations and provision of safe drinking water for Rs six per month per household are the other proposals made by the manifesto committee. Promised Rs 3,116 monthly stipend to unemployed youth Promised Rs 10 lakh financial assistance to Telangana martyrs Promised farm loan waiver up to Rs 2 lakh. Promised free borewell or agriculture pump set Promised free laptops to degree students Promised IT expansion to tier Il cities like Karimnagar, Warangal, Nizamabad and Nalgonda Extension of Metro Rail to Patancheru, Suraram, Kompally, Alwal, ECIL, Rajendranagar. BJP has announced subsidy to senior citizens visiting religious places like Kailash Manasarovar, Kashi and Puri, under arts, language and culture. The history of Hyderabad, including the Nizam rule, the activities of Razakars and the struggle for separate Telangana would be made part of academic curriculum   Congress Party Manifesto                 Congress Party is known for appeasing Muslims and Christians since Independence continue to fashion the Manifesto in a similar manner is no surprise. Despite their loosing last elections because of undue privileges accorded to the minorities, they have not learned the lesson. Their vote bank politics catalyzed their vision for India stabbing the wishes of most Hindus. In December 2006, the then Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh announced at a meeting of the National Development Council in New Delhi, he sought to redefine secularism and announced that high priority will be given to minorities at the expense of Hindus.  Welfare of one community took urgency over everyone else in the country. He even announced, "Muslims must have first claim over resources". Following are the high lights of Congress Party Manifesto: The Congress has promised seven 'Muslim-only' schemes in its manifesto to woo the community’s voters ahead of Telangana Assembly Elections 2018. free electricity to mosques and churches, special opportunities in government contracts for the Muslim youth, Rs 20 lakh aid to poor Muslim students, residential schools for Muslims, hospitals for minorities, special Urdu DSC (District Selection Committee) for minorities, and punishment to firms for hiring on the basis of religion.   TRS Manifesto                 TRS Manifesto is equally favoring the Muslims and its passion to provide incentives is unabated. Since TRS is aligned with MIMS, it is going all out to please the Muslims and stab Hindus who have provided the major support for TRS party.  Many social welfare programs appear to be acceptable, Minority Appeasement was criticized by many people. TRS said that it would continue to press and fight for implementation of 33% reservation to BCs and 33% reservation to women in legislatures. Provide 12% reservation to STs and 12% reservation to economically backward Muslims. "For implementing these reservations, the state government will continue to fight for their cause with the Centre," the TRS said. All types of Aasara pensions will be enhanced from Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,016 while the pensions of differently abled persons will be enhanced from Rs 1,500 to Rs 3,016. Economically backward people who have their own plot will be provided financial assistance, ranging from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh. Large scale health camps would be organised across the state, with diagnostic tests being conducted for the poor at the government's cost. Efforts are in on to transform Hyderabad as a global city. This will be accelerated with more initiatives. The retirement age of government employees will be enhanced from the present 58 to 61. Promised much earlier unemployment allowance of Rs 3,000, crop loan waiver up to Rs two lakh in one go instead of instalments as in TRS rule, social security pension of Rs 2,000 and Rs 10,000 as investment support to agriculture. Promised to increase investment support of Rs 8,000 per acre for agriculture to Rs 10,000 per acre. We encourage people to go to the websites of these parties to look at their Manifestos to get acquainted with their position on various issues.   Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

[GHHF] Hindus and Jews Join Hands to Celebrate Festival of Lights

History-Making Hindu-Jewish Festival of Lights (Northbrook, IL, November 18, 2018) It was standing-room only for 425 Hindus and Jews who made a bit of history celebrating both Diwali and Chanukah at the Hindu-Jewish Festival of Lights at Temple Beth-El in Northbrook, IL. The event not only celebrated the two holidays, which occur at the same time of year and have similar themes but fostered a greater understanding between the two communities. It also highlighted the strong bonds, both ancient and modern, between Israel and India.   Sponsored by StandWithUs, The Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, Temple Beth El, VHPA, Shir Hadash, Sewa International, Pram Shakti Peeth of America Foundation, and TV Asia, the "Festival of Lights" included presentations by both the consulates of India and Israel, a Diwali and Chanukah lighting ceremony, inspiring remarks by Peggy Shapiro, StandWithUs Midwest Executive Director, and Prasad Yalamanchi, Chairman of the Hindu Heritage Foundation, and uproarious comedy by Samson “Mahatma Moses” Koletka, the world’s only Indian Jewish stand-up comedian. After a feast of delicious traditional Chanukah and Diwali food, the audience participated in dance Indian Garba and Israeli dance. In fact, the Israeli dance was created in honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary of independence.   Aviv Ezra, Consul General of Israel to the Midwest, focused attention on the mutually beneficial relationship between Israel and India. “Since Prime Minister Modi and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reciprocal country visits one year ago, this mutually beneficial relationship has grown in even more profound ways.The two leaders signed 7 MoU’s in India, and 9 in Israel---MoU’s with clear, tangible projects that have already begun.” He elaborated on some incredible Israel-India collaborations, including in the field of water technology, R & D development, defense cooperation, and space exploration.   The audience, both Hindu and Jewish, were thrilled with the opportunity to meet and learn from one another. Peggy Shapiro, Midwest Executive Director of StandWithUs, an international Israel education organization, sees the event as a celebration of two peoples, both of whom honor ancient ties, and cherish common values. “Both festivals signify the emergence of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. Hindus and Jews are celebrating together, not only because their two festivals occur at the same time on the calendar, but also because they want to shed some light on the value of tolerance, understanding and respect for other religions.   Dr. Souptik Mukherjee, one of the event committee members, drove in from Ohio to attend. He is enthusiastic about the possibilities this event creates. "This historic event Hindu Jewish Festival of Lights is a celebration of 2500 years of our glorious relationship between the two communities. It is to cherish the common values both communities hold dear, co-existence, mutual respect, gender equality and a common belief that education is the road to peace. Groups across the country have asked to have similar events. I see this event as the beginning of a movement that can make the world a better and safer place.”   PHOTOS CREDITS: DEJA VIEWS USA {{album_21}}   Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

New York, Nov 10, 2018: New York and  New Jersey Hindu Americans gathered near New York City Consulate on Nov 10th to express their solidarity to Sabarimala devotees and call to respect age old traditions and beliefs.   They later assembled at the well known Times Square to make a statement to ‘Save Sabarimala’.    Photos and videos of the event can be obtained from To the singing of Ayyappa bhajans and dancing to the Lord, slogan shouting against Kerala communist Government atrocities on Sabarimala devotees and the need to free Hindu Temples from Government control, with messages on unfair judicial overreach of Supreme Court on the issue, the connection of the missionary and divisive forces in the country, the crowd has made a very effective statement on the Sabarimala issue. Most of the participants in the rally are women who made statement  that they join with millions of women who stand to respect the age old traditions. The participants drove home the Sabarimala issue from various aspects of the case in their interactions with the media as given below.   Judicial aspects: There are many issues of the Judiciary handling of this case. Whose fundamental rights is Supreme Court protecting by their judgement? Who are those initiating the request? While they may have hindu sounding names, does the 4 out of 5 justices who delivered majority judgment has any basic knowledge of Hindu customs and traditions, especially of the region?  Why is it only Hindu temples and Hindu festivals/activities from state control of temples to limiting time for burning Diwali firecrackers to Jallikatttu, that seem to be on the receiving end of the SC judgments? What business SC got in delivering judgments on age old traditions unless there is an institutional discrimination? India’s traditions and customs are based on 10,000 year old ancient heritage and how can Supreme Court view this case based on foreign concept of ‘denomination’ instead of concept of ‘the statue as living God’ in Hindu tradition? Does these judges have any common sense on not to look at the way these cases are being brought to court by shady NGOs with missionary and leftist leanings who have little respect to India’s ancient heritage and are bent on destroying the ancient Indian traditions so as to convert and divide India? Do they care to study all the history of missionary activities to destroy the Sabarimala temple precisely  because it is the place where largest number of devotees visit in any worship place in the world (50 million compared to 3 million to Mecca per year for example) and destroying and exploiting it becomes the first priority? When you read the judges arguments about the case one wonders whether this case is being heard in Indian court  or in the court during the era of colonialist judges. These justices need to study Mahatma Gandhi ji’s abhorrence to missionary ways and threat it poses to nationhood! Living in ivory towers, connected mostly only to rich and powerful, disconnected from the roots of their own country,  the judiciary of India has become an increasingly corrupt institution that needs serious intervention.   Lot can be said about SC Judges behavior, their overreach in case of Hindus and cowardice in case of non Hindus, particularly Muslims and Christians. In the case of Triple Talaq the same Supreme Court insisted on the victims to file but in case of Sabarimala they cared little on who is filing the case. As it turned out most of those who attempted entry to Sabarimala are Christians and even a Muslim woman who believed to have carried a soiled sanitary napkin as an offering to the Lord to insult and disgrace. It is the women devotees who faced the brutal police beatings and arrests that  resisted their entry and calling for respecting traditions.   Did these so called learned judges consider the traditions of the region where there are festivals only women are allowed and the concept of statue as ‘the living God’ that needs to respect celibacy status. Are they living in another world, not to know that the Indian heritage and Hinduism is the only major religion in the world that  grandly celebrates feminine in divinity as observed by worship of feminine during 9 day Navarathri and many in west who are struggling to bring feminine in divinity are awed by India’s traditions of respecting feminine in divinity? The lawyers brought to the attention of the court the Hindu concept of ‘Ardha Nareeswara’ where man and woman are equal halves in Hindu religion but they ignored and argued based on foreign concept of denominations. They say they are  protecting the fundamental rights but in truth are cowards who dare not address the institutional discrimination in every single one of the millions of Mosques that does not permit Muslim women to worship. Even the Mosque right close to Sabarimala temple made clear that they will not allow women to enter the Mosque!   Don’t the Judges know that only Hindu temples are being looted to the hilt by State Governments but they have scant respect to the concerns of Hindus and dismiss the cases that brought attention to them. They care little the same loot is used for secular purposes and even to fund the trips to Hajj and Bethlehem while their worship places are never touched! If Delhi is believed to have pollution due to Diwali crackers (which is not true because it is now understood due to Monsanto dictated schedule of burning the crops) why would they restrict Diwali fire crackers throughout the country? Millions of animals are slaughtered in the worst possible display with enormous amount of water and pollution during Eid and other festivals and that is not pollution? Jallikattu is supposedly animal cruelty but mass slaughtering of animals filling large parts of the country with blood and animal waste is not animal cruelty. They are concerned about rights of Rohingyas but the  little concern for plight of half million Kashmiri Hindus who were thrown out of their own homes for last 30 years. The Green Tribunal is is even concerned about devotee chantings in Amarnath! Reasons are invented that even Ganesha worship is contributing to pollution. There is an organized and coordinated attack of India’s ancient heritage way of life inventing all kinds of methods and excuses using Courts and Green Tribunals  with its corrupt and pliable justices by the missionary, leftists and divisive forces and the country need to wake up to what is going on?   State Government aspects: Even if Supreme Court passed judgement, what is the reason for State Government hurry to implement using such large police forces, resorting to beatings and arrests of unarmed devotees begging to respect traditions?   There are many Supreme Court cases including the noise pollution of the Mosques 5 times a day, 365 days a year they have not implemented. Why would they appoint non-Hindus to Devaswom board?   The truth is the missionary/leftist complex want to convert the Sabarimala temple into ‘Museum’ and exploit the surrounding rich area and the money from devotees for corruption and other activities just as they did throughout the history to the native religions in the world (e.g, the pagan harvest festival is today Halloween with black friday sales activity in US). The same secular Government loots the devotees contributions with hefty charges but provides land for a nearby church free.   Missionary and divisive forces: The biggest factor in the coordinated attacks on India’s heritage, of which Sabarimala is only one of cases is caused by the of missionary and divisive forces of India. The history of missionary attacks on Sabarimala is well known, in 1950 they set fire and burnt the temple down.  They invented a bogus cross which they implanted to take over the area that was quickly exposed.   The history of missionary activity throughout the world and how they treated so called, ‘pagan’ religions is well known from Americas to Africa to Asia. The fact that Sabarimala receives 50 million devotees per year, the highest in the world with largest contributions makes Sabarimala the prime target. The article explains in detail the missionary agenda on Sabarimala. Missionaries are actively engaging in anti-superstitution bills across the country to categorize the Hindu ways of worship as demonic practices as they did throughout the world to pagan religions. Before long, even Ganesha worship will be categorized as devil worship. Using millions of dollars of funds, they are working with corrupt leftists Governments, courts and dubious tribunals inventing all kinds of excuses to deal a final blow to Hindu way of life.   Social aspects: There are many social aspects to Sabarimala tradition where devotees  follow 41 days of austere practices of prayers, abstaining from meat, alcohol and treating every other person as ‘Swami’ equivalent to Ayyappa. This has for many become a redirection of compass, their physical and mental health. For many poor families where women and children suffer from drinking habits of male members, this practice has helped them to stop drinking and improve the conditions of the family. It is the women and families who will be affected most by sacrilege of the faith they dearly hold.   Hindus worldwide are waking up to the civilizational challenges especially in a corrupt system of missionaries, judiciary, media, politicians. They do not want to me mute observers to this assault. As the rally dispersed, they mused that Mahatma Gandhi will be turning around in his grave to see what missionaries with local colluders are doing to Hindu way of life and assaulting India, with determination to fight back.  It is deja vu again.   For further information Contact: Satya Dosapati ( Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

Sabarimala Protest in Chicago

Chicago, Oct 27, 2018:  The united Hindus of Chicago along with Geetha Mandalam, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, VHPA-Chicago, OFBJP, Bhartiya Senior Citizens,expressed dis-satisfaction against the Supreme Court of India’s verdict allowing women between the age of 10-50 in response to a petition by non-devotees. The verdict is against hundreds of year-old temple tradition. It is against Hindu faith and belief system. The community is outraged by the SC judgement; and expressed solidarity to those who have been relentlessly fighting to protect Sabarimala and Hindu Dharma. The protestors signed memorandum asking to repeal the verdict. It will be submitted to the Prime Minister through Consulate General and other media. The Hindus across the world are unhappy with the premeditated desecration of Sabarimala. The Hindu community condemns the State Government of Kerala who has used official machinery to crush the protests of innocent pilgrims who just want to protect their place of worship from those who only have the aim to desecrate it. All most all Hindu women are okay with the current restrictions and in fact, they are the one who is fighting against the Supreme Court verdict! The women who are asking temple access are either atheists or from other religions, they are not even devotees, they are not doing for worship, equality, or to reform Hinduism! They have no respect for the sacredness of the place.They are simply trying to denigrate Hinduism and to tear down the fabric of Hinduism. They are hurting the sentiments of nearly 1 billion Hindus! They want to humiliate the Hindus! A non-Hindu activist Rehana Fatima; who attempted to enter the temple carried sanitary napkins to desecrate Ayyappa (Hindu God) is not a sign of worship!It deeply hurt the sentiments of Hindus worldwide. It is clear that the anti-Hindu elements have a set and a systematic agenda to break apart Hinduism and then Bharat. It is important to remember that they are not doing for our sisters, daughters, and moms. They are moving with their evil agenda. The verdict is a surrender to the “Destroy-Hinduism” forces. The SC should not interfere in rituals as long as they are not abusive, violent, threat, harmful, unsafe, or with a discriminatory motive. In this case, individual right was given higher priority than the basic Hindu practices. The Supreme Court is being selective and discriminatory. They find a violation of fundamental rights because of the restrictions of the single Hindu temple, but do not find anything wrong with the restrictions on women in other religions. Handful non-Hindu activist’s concerns matter to the SC, but 1 billion Hindus’ faith do not? What kind of justice is this? Why the SC did not consult the Hindu dharmgurus and scholars first? It should be “Fix all religions or none!” The SC should not play double standards. Hindus are simply asking to save their faith, traditions, customs, culture, and thousands of years-old heritages in their own country which are being attacked in the name of reforms. All Hindu reforms should come from within Hindus after thorough analysis, research, study, and understanding. Dharmgurus and scholars should be consulted to bring needed reforms. Unlike some other religions, Hinduism is progressive and flexible religion. The reforms were carried out in the past (for example “Sati Pratha”) and could be done again. But, no external elements, especially anti-Hindu regiment should force the reforms. Supreme Court has no business in hearing cases on religion unless there is a systematic discrimination. Sabarimala is a wake-up call for all Hindus and a golden opportunity to unite! “Sabarimala” is not a local issue; it as an attack on “Hindu-faith”. It is Sabarimala today, and if nothing is done, it will be other temples and traditions tomorrow! Diwali firework is banned 22 hours out of 24 hours. While keeping cruel rituals from other religions untouched, all Hindu festivals are under heavy scrutiny behind the name of reforms. We urge the Hindus that; this is not an isolated event, but a planned and premeditated attack on the religion by anti-Hindu forces. We urge Hindus across the globe to wake up and take note of the designs of anti-India and anti-Hindu forces and take actions, before it gets too late. #SaveSabarimala , #SaveSabarimalaFaith , #ProtectHinduism, #SaveHinduDharma Here are some photos and videos from the Chicago and worldwide other protests: Thank You, - Hemant Patel (Chicago) - 847-858-8865  Satya Dosapati - 732-939-2060 {{album_20}}   Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

Join Save Sabarimala rallies at NYC consulate and Chicago on Saturday, Oct 27 at 10 AM (local time). Bus from Edison, NJ at 8 AM

Hindus across the world condemn the premeditated desecration of Sabarimala and the widespread police atrocities against devotees. Sabarimala is a largest pilgrimage center in the world with estimated number of 50 million devotees visiting every year. The Supreme Court verdict allowing women between the age of 10-50 in response to a petition by non-devotees is an attack on the fabric of Hinduism behind the name of the religious reform and equality. It is against the temple age old-traditions, faith, customs and discriminatory towards Hindus Protests are being held at various temples, consulates and other areas worldwide to condemn the State Government actions, police atrocities and express solidarity to the devotees who bravely blocked the efforts to sacrilege the place. The handful of the women who attempted to enter have little respect to the sacredness of the place. It deeply hurt the sentiments of Hindus worldwide to find out about the Muslim woman activist who attempted to enter carrying a stained sanitary napkin as an offering to the deity.         The current events being planned are: New York, Saturday, Oct 27th, 10AM – 12 noon EST,Indian Consulate, 7002, 3 East 64th St, New York, NY 10065 Chicago, Saturday Oct 27th, 10AM – 12 noon CST, 343 Saint Paul Blvd, Carol Stream, IL 60188 Transportation in New Jersey: BUS from the parking lot across the street opposite Apna Bazaar, Edison, NJ (1681 Oak Tree Rd), leaves at 8 AM.   Several more events are already done and more being planned at various cities. A running list will be maintained at the link below to the extent possible. We urge the Hindus that this is not an isolated event but a planned and premeditated attack on the religion by anti-hindu forces, particularly the Christian missionary establishment, leftists and other break India forces. Such attack by Christian missionary establishment on the temple in the prior years is well known (arson and vandalism in 1950). The fact that the temple receives 50 million devotees per year makes it the prime target to destroy the 'pagan' religion using every possible method they have tuned from the experience they had after destroying the natives from Americas to Africa to Asia. The Supreme court judges of India who first allowed this petition by non-devotees and then made a judgment brushing aside the defendants arguments that in Hinduism the deity is considered a living God (Prana Pratishta) and the celibate nature of the deity is the reason for not allowing women of age 10-50 and it is not patriarchal since the Kerala/Malayalee community is in fact a matriarchal society, reflected a colonist mindset of our judiciary who are out of touch with general populace. Supreme Court is being selective and discriminatory when they find violation of fundamental rights because of restrictions of single Hindu temple but does not find anything violated with the restrictions of Muslim women from almost every Mosque in the country. And that too a restriction which every Hindu devotee respects and adheres!! Five non-Hindu activist’s concerns matter, but 1 billion+ Hindus’ faith not? Besides, the Hindu religion is the only major religion in the world that worships feminity in worship in grandest manner as demonstrated by nine-day celebration of Durga during Navarathri festival. The women who are asking temple access are simply trying to denigrate Hinduism and to tear down the fabric of Hinduism and are tools of the larger systematic to break apart Hinduism and then Bharat. It is important to understand that they are not doing for our sisters, daughters, and moms but an evil agenda. All Hindu reforms should come from within Hindus after thorough analysis, research, study, and understanding. Hindus would involve dharma gurus and scholars to bring needed reforms. Unlike others, Hinduism is progressive and flexible religion. We have reformed in the past and do not need any external elements, especially anti-Hindu regiment to force us. Supreme Court has no business in hearing cases on religion unless there is a systematic discrimination. This is not isolated event. The murder of Swami Laxmananda because of his work discouraging conversions in 2008, orchestrated by Rajya Sabha congress member and head of Christian missionary Organization World vision, the arrest of Sankaracharya based on bogus allegations because his work with Dalits is a thorn for conversions, the engineered allegations against Shri Sathya Sai Baba to mass conversions are just few of the examples of direct assault on fabric of Bharat and its ethos by using hundreds of millions of dollars of foreign funding. One by one Hindu way of life is being restricted with a web of media, judiciary and sold out prominent people, just as they did across the world. Dubious organizations and reasons invented to restrict celebration of Hindu festivals like Diwali and Holi and Hindu way of life. Mahatma Gandhi severely criticized the missionary activities and methods and said if he has a chance he would legislate banning all such activities. His strong opposition to the missionary activities is well known. We urge Hindu, no matter where you are to wake up and take note of the designs of anti-India and anti-Hindu forces and take action, before it is too late.

Should a Sanyasi or a Swami Enter Politics? Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s Powerful,Forceful, and Timely Answer

For many years, Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has been conducting Question and Answer Session every Sunday afternoon wherever He is - whether he is in Mysore or foreign countries. In fact, books were also published on these Q& A Sessions for the benefit of the readers. Many people have been asking Sri Swamiji about Advaita philosophy, Reincarnation, Bhakti Yoga, Guru Tattva, Conversions, Dharma and many other topics. Question by a Devotee On October 21, Mr. Bala Subramanyam asked Sri Swamiji the question: Saints, Seers, Yogis, Siddhis, Swamiji’s have been working for the protection of Bharat tirelessly to preserve peace and harmony.   Saints who belong to this tradition have taken U-turn from their tradition and entering politics. In fact, one saintwho came to Mysore Ashram did Sashtanga Namaskaram to Sri Swamiji, spent one night here and spoke and went back. I do not want to mention the name of that saint (Please NOTE: that he was referring to Swami Paripoornananda who visited Sri Swamiji about four years ago). Over the last one week, this saint entered politics and said that he would have more power to bring changes and protect dharma and Hindutva. Also, one saint has become a Chief Minister for Uttara Pradesh. These saints are getting attracted to politics. What is Sri Swamiji message on this issue.? Please click on the link below to watch Q&A: Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji’s Answer             A saint can do whatever he wishes to protect Dharma. There is no reason for us even to discuss and question. That Swamiji has decided as to how to protect Dharma. That was his determination, not our decision. Vasishta, Vishwamitra,andMaitreyi have done similar things to protect Dharma. There are many such incidents in Puranas. They have done only to protect Dharma. Why should we have any objection?Whether it is Prime Minister or Chief Minister, it is their wish to select whatever method he wants to protect dharma. We are in a democracy (prajarajyam).             If the saints want to go to the people and propagate dharma, why do you have any objection? Do we have any rules as to what method one must use? Some may choose to walk with a stick, go by car or fly. Some people even asked me why I have a car? If I go walking, I cannot meet many devotees. If I go by car or flight, I can meet more people ant talk about dharma. If I go on a walk, it will take many months to reach the destination. Any Yatishwar should do what his consciousness dictates, or what his Guru commands him to do. It is the most auspicious thing to do what his consciousness propels him to do.             Who are we to put hurdles in their way? We do not have any right to question the saint? Everybody is free to do what is his dharma. Any body can work for the protection of dharma. Where is it written that people wearing this dress or that dress cannot work to protect dharma? Who are you put restrictions.? Because of people like you, who keep questioning, created this mess in the society. Some people even asked me why Yatishwar like Sri Swamiji serve meals for others or clean bath rooms? Where is it written that we cannot do?              It is his Swadharma that tells himto follow the path of dharma. It is your Swadharma to question. But whatever his atma dictates that is what a saint will do. Did any body give any certificate saying that he is a saint? He is doing what he thinks is the right thing for society. We should not go into their way doing service to the society. It is a sin if you interfere with their mission.             Sri Swamiji asked the devotee if I enter politics, would you not support me? Or your will desert me. You would justify your Guru’s action. You would be the first one to raise the flag in support of your Guru. Because of your love toward me, you will support me. Similarly, all his devotees/supporters are supportiveof hisdecision to follow the dharmic path. Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

There is a story of Vivekananda where after returning from a temple in Varanasi a group of monkeys started chasing him.  Swamiji started running and the more he ran, the more aggressive the monkeys got.  A bystander who saw this drama shouted, ‘Stop running, face the brutes.' Swamiji turned around and faced the monkeys and the monkeys got confused and ran away.   The terror stricken Swamiji in the story is the situation of BJP today when it comes to handling the discrimination of Hindus.  BJP bought into the aggressive agenda of foreign NGOs and institutions which want to divide and convert India, like a deer struck in a night headlight, they are too afraid to address some of the most difficult problems Hindus are facing in form of discrimination by the state starting from India’s independence, particularly in education, benefits and control of their religious institutions. This is unwittingly encouraging conversions and division of India and increase the number of voters who would perhaps rarely vote for BJP.   Worse, BJP seems to be eager to show they are minority friendly while turning blind eye to those who overwhelmingly voted for them. Take the Citizenship bill.   The brutality faced by Hindus and other non-Muslim minorities in Bangla Desh and Pakistan is mind boggling.  The objections of AGP to citizenship bill and any other groups can be addressed by negotiations (for e.g.  move from Assam and settle in other states in return for citizenship) but that requires strong will to pass it before elections.   It is being said most of the illegal Bangla Deshi Muslims (who will mostly vote for opposition) were able to get through the NRC through fake documents with active support of Islamic organizations and are now encouraging Bangla Deshi Hindus to convert so that they can also get the same kind of support.  Whether how much of this is true or not, how much difference the voters from Citizenship bill will make for BJP in 2019 in several states?   Then take Hindu Temples take over by State Governments.   Which country and which majority face this kind of discrimination where the funds contributed by the devotees are being plundered by the state while at the same time literally billions of funds are poured (in spite of action of NGOs) for converting and dividing India.   If Hindus can manage the world’s most premier institutions, manage massive religious institutions including many schools, can they not manage their temple funds for the welfare of those who contributed to it?    Why is Rama Krishna Mission or Lingayats want to be categorized as non-Hindus?   What is frightening is that even today millions of dollars being poured into India for conversions, just one West Godavari district in Andhra has 11,000 pastors and there is hardly any village, even a remotest village, in Andhra which does not have a church.  This is even if it does not have a single convert in that village because they are planning for a Christian Andhra (like Christian North East states) in just few decades!!!   Take the implementation of RTE (Right to Education) which is described by many as one of the worst things perpetrated against Hindu community.  Hundreds of thousands of schools owned by Hindus are being closed and have given way to minority owned schools.  Not even the Government schools were subject to these kinds of rules.   Most of the students educated in Hindu owned institutions are more prone to be nationalistic in outlook and future voters of BJP and they are the ones closed by unfair and discriminatory rules.   Take Article 370 and uniform civil code.  It is a shame even at this day and age we do not have guts to address polygamy and the lack of alimony support for divorced Muslim women.   Much of India is paying so much price in terms of massive benefits to Kashmir and what is India getting in return.   No matter how you slice and dice it, nowhere and no time in the history of the Islam, has any other society or any other religions group were given equal rights.    Let us face that fact.   By discriminating Hindus and unwittingly abetting conversions BJP is running risk of suicide, maybe a long-term suicide.   When Rahul Gandhi is saying he will become Prime Minister, in 2024, this is exactly he is counting on, the increase the number of Christian and Muslim converts and all they have to do is woo them aggressively through their religious institutions.   Manmohan Singh openly declared that ‘minorities have first right to resources of India’, imagine what Congress will say and do after the next few years when they have the magic 30+ percentage of captive voters.   Take the case of tourism.   Just recently an Islamic Mosque in Gujarat is declared as UNESCO Heritage site, but we are not able to work for getting Rama Sethu to be declared a UNESCO Heritage site.   All around the world, from Peru to Greece, Turkey, the tourism is geared to ancient heritage, literally providing millions of jobs, but India which the world still holds high about its heritage could not tap into it.   When I looked closely into it, I was surprised in many of these countries’ tourism is second highest revenue/job generating.    From discovery of Dwarka in the ocean, Ajanta/Ellora and the great temples of India with its yogic tradition, India has literally enormous potential to generate jobs through tourism which cannot be taken away. Country after country, are meticulously rebuilding their ancient ruins and showcasing their heritage.   While Peru proudly shows of Mayan traditions, Islamic Turkey is showing off Roman ruins and ancient Christian caves and Jordan is showing off their ‘pagan’ towns (Pedra) where Sanskrit sounding names of Gods were once worshiped.    A small country like Cambodia is generating millions of dollars of tourism from single Angkor Watt temple.  Bali in Indonesia is the most visited tourist place in the world.  When I recently traveled to Europe, I saw posters and billboards advertising Ayurveda in Sri Lanka and not a single one in India!!!   A recent news media article quoted Master Card president Ajay Banga saying that the number of tourists in whole of India per year is just about the number of tourists to New York City?  What a shame, we cannot build and showcase our heritage.  We are too timid and lack courage even if such development will generate jobs for all Indians no matter what religion they belong to.  India has lot of work to carefully develop tourism with a private-public partnership and it should not be entirely left to bureaucrats.   Modi ji is working hard to ‘Make in India’, what is best ‘Make in India’ than India’s heritage and no automation can replace it!!!   When I heard that Indian Government gave presentation to Obama how Indian Government is assisting minorities through various schemes, I wondered if Obama would have given presentation to India on how US Government helping its minorities who face so much discrimination even today after nearly 2 centuries of brutal slavery.  In spite of such persecution and discrimination, American removed much of the minority programs quoting it is causing reverse discrimination of poor whites.    Maybe what we need to bring to light is the shameful fact of how majority, particularly the poor among majority in India are badly discriminated by Indian state. Today BJP has much comfortable position in Rajya Sabha and has majority in combined houses.   Even if they want to pass bill in combined houses they need six months period after tabling the bills in both houses before they introduce those bills in combined houses.   The time is really running out to pass some badly needed bills before the next elections.   What is the guarantee if BJP will have such majority in the next elections?    Will Modi ji and BJP wake up and gather courage to address this before we lose such an opportunity?   While most Hindus support Modi ji’s efforts to lift all Indians no matter who they are, the fact of the matter is overwhelming majority of their voters are Hindus and here is where Modi ji can learn a real lesson from Trump.   Support your base so that you get their enthusiastic support in return.

Speech Welcoming Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji to Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple on September 9

Welcome Speech September 2018 Prakasarao Velagapudi PhD It is my rare and divine opportunity to welcome Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji to USA and particularly to Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple - a Temple that is unique, exceptional, amazing, vibrant, dynamic, spiritually charged, pulsating, incomparable and unmatched. This is the vision, planning, creation, mental construct and dream of Sri Swamiji. He is Sadguru incarnate. He is the source of all scriptures, all knowledge, all wisdom and all fortune. He dedicated this Avatara for the loka Kalyanamand loka sangrahana that takes him all over the world. It is his purity of heart, uncompromising dedication to help the humanity, his life-long commitment to help both the devotees both internally and externally, his unwavering vow to protect and guide his devotees, Sri Swamiji as a Mother Cow keeps an ever-vigilant eye on the pasturing calf. SantJnaneswar says,” Just as camphor is clear both within and without, so the man of wisdom is pure both internally and externally. Like the jewel which is pure both in and out or like the sun who is equally brilliant both within and without, so he has become externally pure by means of his pious works and internally pure by knowledge. He makes his body pure by washing it with earth and water and by the recitation of the Vedas.” It is his mission todestroy the poverty of thought, sow the seeds of spirituality, instill the value of Dhyana, inculcate the virtues of wisdom, instill the fruits of serving humanity, impart the merits of following dharma, and reveal the knowledge of Brahman. Let us all pray Sri Swamiji to bless us with continued priceless association of our Guru and the ever-flowing grace.We will the unique opportunity to enjoys the rays of the sun of knowledge andtap the glorious treasure of ancientwisdom. Undivided attention is required to reap the benefits of His presence. Wherever he casts his eyes, think that he is only looking at you. Whenever He speaks, think that he is addressing only to you. Whenever he smiles, think that he is smiling at you. Whenever he sits silently, think that he is sending vibrations only to you. Whenever he admonished, think that there is lesson for me to learn. Whenever you are at the presence of Sri Swamiji, think that he will bring deep transformation in you.  His state cannot be described in words.             No matter how much I talk about Sri Swamiji and how many miracles we can recount, it is like describing the dazzling brilliance of sun, which cannot be seen with naked eye. Then who is this Swamiji? It is appropriate remember the description of Guru found in Vishwasaara Tantra:  “The Guru is the beginning of the universe, yet he himself is without a beginning; the Guru is the highest deity; there is none higher than the Guru … Salutation to the true Guru who is the embodiment of the Bliss of Brahman and the bestower of supreme happiness, who is detached, knowledge personified, and beyond duality, who is like the sky, and is indicated by such Vedic dicta as “Thou are That”, and who is One, eternal pure, immovable, the witness of all the changes in the Budhi (intellect), beyond all the states and devoid of the three Gunas.”             Sri Swamiji is an Avadhuta, the one who has shaken off the worldly ties while living in the world only to uplift and liberate. He is beyond good and evil, beyond three gunas and free from social and religious obligations. Paramahamsa Upanishad accurately narrates the uniqueness of an Avadhuta:             He does not fear pain. He longs not for pleasure. He forsakes love. He is not attached anywhere either to the pleasant or for unpleasant. He doe not hate. He does not rejoice. The activities of all his senses have come to the rest. Firmly fixed in knowledge, the self ever abides in the self alone. He is called an ascetic. He alone is a Yogin; he alone is knower. “I am Brahman who is consummate bliss and pure consciousness;” realizing this, he becomes one who has done all there is to do.” There are many Rishis, saints, sages, seers and Gurus who trekked the width and breadth of India and the world. Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji is a visionary who set the example for the rest of the modern world. Only occasionally you will see such a visionary who is born to direct and lead suffering, stressful and confused humanity to the path of dharma by guiding, counseling, advising and admonishing those who had the fortune of being born at the time Sri Swamiji is present in His physical form.   It is this vision that resulted in the establishment of the Ashram that contains Nadamantapam, Dhyana Mandiram, Universal Prayer Hall, Sukhavanam, Bonsai Gardens, Sri Venkateswara Temple, Vishwam museum, hospitals and many more facilities. With this vision to establish dharma, Sri Swamiji completed Vishwa Dharma Vijaya Yatra by trekking the world 150 times. It is this kind of vision that enabled Sri Swamiji to build this magnificent, majestic and imposing Hanuman Agrahara. It is one of a kind, unmatched in the annals of humanity. I am not sure if we can find any Agraharam like this even in India. Sri Swamiji’s vision is empoweringto revive the past glory of the traditional Temple in this modern world, infuse them with more energy and vibrations and enabling the devotees to experience the divine presence in silence.  It is also this vision that made him establish more than 80 Datta Yoga Centers and Temples in all the continents. His inspiring teachings, his healing music, his soul stirring bhajans, his yoga and meditation, and Sri Chakra Puja have touched the hearts and souls of innumerable people by redressing their sorrows, reducing their pain, uplifting their spirits, cleansing their sins, purging their suffering and guiding them to the right path. His radiance, glow, his persona, love, compassion, luminosity and warmness bring relief, joy, happiness and peace to this chaotic, confused and confounded world. These are all part of his grand vision to uplift the mankind to higher levels. Sri Swamiji is embodiment of all scriptures, all wisdom, all actions, all movements, all love and all compassion reflecting the true nature of a living God. The innumerable variety of subjects are touching every aspect of human living. His depth of knowledge is bottomless. His teachings are enlightening for both ignorant and intelligent. His vision is global enriched by love and compassion. His mission is to bring unity, harmony, congruence, tolerance forbearance in this disturbed constantly changing world beset by troubles, tribulations, torments, tortures, predicaments, predilections, and perturbance.How is it possible to make this insane world sane? For Swamiji who is a God realized soul, who eternally lives in samadhi, who exuberates nectar, who exhilarates the spirits,and who is Ashtasidhi, nothing is impossible, nothing is unsurmountable, and nothing is insuperable. A passage in the Upanishadstells us: “That sage who has solely engaged himself in drinking the nectar which is no other than Brahman, the nectar which is the outcome of incessant meditation, that sage becomes the greatest of ascetics, Paramahamsa, and a philosopher free of worldly taint, Avadhuta. By the sight of him the whole world becomes consecrated. Even an ignorant man who is devoted to his service becomes liberated.” Dhyana Sri Swamiji incessantly challenges his devotees to control the senses and tame the mind though yoga, Dhyana and meditation. Mind is chenchala - unstable, imbalanced, unhinged, quivering, and everchanging. Dhyana is a royal road to find out how waves of thoughts are subsided, speech is silenced, and noise is stilled.  We must free ourselves from everything that prevents us to enter the chamber of silence. The poem composed by Swami Gnanananda appropriate to remember:            Enter into yourself where there is nothing,            And take care that nothing enters there            Penetrate within yourself            To the place where there is no more ant thought,            And take care that no thought arises there.            There where there is nothing – there is fulness            There where nothing is seen- the vision of Being            There where nothing more appears – behold, the Self? That is Dhyana. Sri Swamiji mentioned that silence is meditation. Dhyana should be done to put the mind to complete rest. “Then it imbibes greater power. It becomes clear. It gets refreshed. That is why Lord Krishna says, “Among the things profound I am silence.” We are all enamored by outside glitter. Stress, strife, and anxiety are affecting the sense objects to lose the balance of mind and composure.  No peace of mind. But, Sri Swamiji says, “The foundation of perfect peace is within one’s own self. The only means to know and experience this center of infinite and absolute peace is Dhyaana or meditation.Concentrating the mind on one particular object or symbol or thought to the exclusion of all other thoughts and contemplating on it without interruption, constitutes Dhyana” Dhyana Bindu Upanishad says “The mountainous sins accumulated over many births can be destroyed by Dhyana Yoga (Meditation). Nobody is found to have destroyed the sins by any other means except Meditation. Meditation is the only way to annihilate the sins.” Role of Mind It is indeed the mind that is the cause of men's bondage and liberation. The mind that is attached to sense-objects leads to bondage, while dissociated from sense objects it tends to lead to liberation.So, they think. —Amrita Bindu Upanishad.   Form VS Formless. For many devotees, it is very difficult to comprehend, visualize, understand, and even experience the omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient God. Without image, it is unimaginable to see God in abstraction, formlessness, shapelessness and silence. We are not yet developed to know any aspect of God, but what need is there to see the unseen, to know the unknown and imagine the unimaginable when we can also attain self-realization by worshipping the divine personality.Even Lord Krishana himself says that “For those whose minds are attached to the unmanifest, the path of realization is full of tribulations. Worship of the unmanifest is exceedingly difficult for embodied beings.” (Bhagavad Gita 12:5)    For many of us, it is more than enough, more than adequate and more than satisfying to see Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji as an incarnation, manifestation, Avatara, Avadhuta, Sadguru and God in physical form. Thus, we can see him, we can feel his presence, we can touch his feet, we can talk to him in person, we can listen to his discourses, admonition and music, and we can enjoy his persona. Many Gurus and saints have longed to be in the presence of their Gurus. Because of the difficulty in visualizing the unmanifest and invisible, it is only natural to for the ordinary devotee to worship God with a human form.  Even Saints sat in front of Dakshinamurthy and enjoyed the presence and learned from his silence.  Tukaram was fond of worshipping his Guru only in the form.  According to Tukaram:            Superior is the worship of the Lord with form;                It is supreme devotion.                Such worship brings one realization and every divine experience.                Such worship purifies the heart                And from it emerges the beautiful Lord                In his captivating form.                The Name of the Lord is the seed                And the fruit which springs forth;                It is the highest religion.                It is the essence of all religious practice.               His name banishes all trouble—               For where the devotee chants his name               There all virtues meet.               When the Lord enters the heart               And ascends his throne               All that is good appears there—               And no more does the devotee know the pain of rebirth.               Do not, therefore, fear to follow               The faith of your birth.               Repeat His name—that is all one needs.               How many names he has! the Vedas               Call him the perennial Being                The yogis the formless One                And the liberated know him as the radiant Atman.               But Tukaram knows him as Krishna               Who, for the sake of his devotee, assumed the radiant form of a man. It is Sri Swamiji’s gleaming form that will make the devotees restless and agitated mind to rest and regain the composure.Arjuna was happy to see his universal form of Lord Krishna which enabled him to the normal, natural peaceful state. It is difficult to comprehend your form through intelligence, imagination, and spiritual discourses. We are like Arjuna, who said: “Seeing this humanlike form, so very beautiful, my mind is now pacified, and I am restored to my original nature.” (Bhagavad Gita 11:51) Bhakti Whether we worship Sri Swamiji in the form or formlessness, the only way to get connected, feel close and become attached to Swamiji is only through Bhakti. Bhakti can move the mountains and even bring Gods to Bhuloka. Bhakti means devotion, attachment, surrender, faithfulness and closeness. It is an intense and deep love toward your Guru or God. Our Bhakti must not vacillate or waver, it should be steady and unshaken. If you have this kind of Bhakti, Sri Swamiji is always with you, is always present in your mind and consciousness, and always guiding you and steering you to the right path. The more we surrender, closer you will get to Sri Swamiji. Guru Bhakti arises once a psychic communion and spiritual bond is established with a Guru.  A true devotee does not have to ask any thing. When Swamiji is Vishwambara, He who fills this universe, why would he leave you, why would he abandon you, and why would he neglect you. A true bhakta slowly drop off all his Vasanas that bind him, shake off his ever-fleeting desires, and unload the baggage. How can anyone carry so much weight on his head and run up the hill to reach the mountain top.             Lord Krishna himself says, “My dear Arjuna, O winner of wealth, if you cannot fix your mind upon Me without deviation, then follow the regulated principles of bhakti-yoga.  In this way you will develop a desire to attain to Me.” (12:9)             What is expected of a True Bhakta?  Sri Swamiji expects only you, your commitment, your devotion and dedication.  As per Swami Gnanananda:              What the guru expects of you is yourself              Not what you brought, as you went through the market.              Naked you are born              Only naked can you be reborn in the glory of the atman.              He who loses himself, finds himself              He who loses al, l finds all. It is only by ceaseless, relentless and uninterrupted worshipping, praying, meditating and remembering Sri Swamiji we will develop bhakti. Bhakti must be unmotivated and with no selfish desire.By constantly chanting and hearing Sri Swamiji’s discourses, remembering the special qualities, reminding the unique attributes, relishing the benevolence of kindness, recalling mystery of miracles, and visualizing him as Supreme Lord, one develops pure and true bhakti toward Sri Swamiji.             In Bhagavata Purana, Lord Krishna says, “One who is free from expectations, one who does not ask for anything, one who is completely satisfied in his own Self, one who is free from hatred and enmity --- I always follow him; I always walk with him to protect him.”  As a true devotee, our responsibility is to surrender, perform our duties without expectations and absorb in his radiance. "Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me, and offer your homage unto Me. Thus, you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend. Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear" (Bhagavad Gita 18.65-66).             Let us remember these two verses that describe the greatness of Sri Swamiji and saints like him:              The saints are absolutely pious, the emblem of goodness;              Sympathy, compassion, affection, piety, help and kindness              Gracious in benevolence, philanthropy, charity and mercy;              They are lenient, humble, amiable; a living idol of kindliness.             The saints are blessed, blissful and they shower blessings.             They depend on intuitions and are men of profound feelings.             Their presence relieves, gives sense of security, confidence.             They are incarnations, figures divine and natural paintings.                   That is the assurance we have from Sri Swamiji if we have full faith and dedication. His blessings, guidance and compassion permeate all around us to receive unconditionally. Please take advantage of his divine personality, bask under the rays of his grace, soak in the messages that come out of his lips, immerse deeply in the vibrations of his divine music, pluck the fruits of his compassion and experience the glowing personality.             Let us all welcome Sri Swamiji to Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple with a round of applause.   To Listen to to the Speech clink on the link   Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

GHHF Sri Swami Paripoornananda returned to Hyderabad with fanfare and jubilation.

Mark me, then and then alone you are a Hinduwhen the very name sends through youa galvanic shock of strength.—Swami Vivekananda Sri Swami Paripoornananda offered prayers at Kanaka Durgamma Temple on Indrakeeladri hill in Vijayawada on September 4 and started his journey to return to Hyderabad. He was given a huge welcome along the way in different cities such as Kodada, Suryaraopeta, Chityala, Choutuppal and others.  Swami stood through the sunroof of an SUV and greeted the members along the highway. All along the routs people were waving saffron flags, shouting Bharatamataki Jai. The rally was named Dharma Jwala Yatra. As many of you are aware that Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) has been actively supporting the efforts of Swami Paripoornananda for years to bring needed changes in the society to make it a Hindu Nation. We have supported Swamiji for his fight to get the Exrernment Order cancelled. GHHF has written letters to Hyderabad Police Department, Chief Minister and Prime Minister of India about the denial of fundamental rights to Hindus.  GHHF is very happy that High Court of Telangana cancelled the Externmnet Order paving the way for Swamiji to return to Hyderabad. Speaking to the media in Vijayawada, Sri Swamiji said, “Soon after I was externed from Hyderabad, I came to Vijayawada and had darshan of Goddess Kanaka Durga. Once again, I am leaving for Telangana after praying to the Goddess for the well-being of devotees in both the Telugu states. My life is dedicated to ‘Hindu Dharma’, and I will go to any extent to protect it.” People lined up to welcome Sri Swamiji along Vijayawada and Hyderabad road. Women expressed their joy by doing Kolatama – a kind of dance. Youth were enthusiastically riding the bikes. Police were deployed by both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for security purposes. “Unlike people who reached the TRS Pragati Nivedhana Sabha by vehicles arranged by the ruling party, people came voluntarily to see Swamiji. It speaks a lot about the kind of leader he is going to be,” said NVSS Prabhakar, Uppal MLA, who accompanied the Swamy from Vijayawada. By the time Swami reached Hyderabad, rally led to a huge traffic jam from outskirts of Hyderabad. Speaking to the huge crowd, Swamiji said that he will trek the whole state to unite all the Hindus and make sure that every Hindu will be proud to say that they are Hindus. This is a fight for Dharma. This is a fight for Bharata Mata. He will go to any extent to preserve the Hindu Dharma.

Hinduism is at the Crossroads. Hindu NRIs must safeguard Hinduism.

Recently Hindu Mahasabha of America organized timely program to assess the conditions that are detrimental to the survival of Hinduism in India since Independence. Dr. Rudranath Talukdar, Shourie Bannai, Brijender Tanwar and others organized the program at Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple in Frisco TX. Dr. Prakasarao Velagapudi, Chairman of Datta Yoga Center and President of Global Hindi Heritage Foundation was invited as Guest of Honor. This meeting was attended by nearly 200 enthusiastic Hindus. Dr. Prakasarao spoke about the need for protecting Hinduism for the sake of humanity. If Hindu roots are pulled out of Bharath, the whole humanity will be in peril. Hinduism in at cross roads. We can even say that Hinduism is on the death bed. State by state we are losing privileges to the Christians, Muslims, secularists, and intellectuals. West Bengal, Kashmir, Assam, Kerala and Hyderabad are stifling and suffocating Hindus and pushing them to the wall. Many Hindus are drive out of their states with no course. Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are joining the other states depriving the freedom of speech and freedom of gathering. In July Swami Paripoornananda Was house arrested and externed from Hyderabad for making statements supposedly may have hurt the feeling of the minority religions. Then he mentioned that Andhra Pradesh government arrested and put 15 Swamijis in jail for organizing pada yatra from Vijayawada to Tirupathi in protest over the employment of Non-Hindus in TTD. Then he went on narrating the circumstances that lead to the formation of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation in 2006. State government have taken Hindu Temples under their control depleting the resources of Hindu Temples by diverting to Christians and Muslims. All four Southern States have passed Endowment Acts there by taking control of any temple that is making 50,000 rupees or more per year. In the North, only richest Temples are taken over by the state government. For example, Siddhi Vinayaka Temple, Shirdi Saibaba Temple, Puri Jagannad Temple, Kasi Viswanath Temple, Amarnath Temple, and so on. State governments do not account for lands, donations, jewelry, and expenditures. The do not even submit audit report to find out how the government is spending the money. Every Hindu and especially every Hindu NRI should take the responsibility of preserving and protecting Hinduism and Hindu Temples. All of us must ask ourselves as to what am doing to preserve my religion. Every day we may have to ask ourselves to see how we can support and participate in preserving our Hinduism. We, the NRIs, can make the difference.   Please watch this Ten-minute video assess the danger Hinduism is facing.

Western Media’s voracious Thirst for Depreciating Hindu and Modi Continues

Western media have mostly painted a negative picture of India and cherry picked the topics that discredit the Hindu way of life to please the minorities. These media have been supported by many Muslim countries. They always sided with Pakistan to break India even further. The only major religion that advocated the peaceful coexistence, embraced non-violence as the pillar of peaceful living, practicing democratic ideals for political stability, provided special opportunities to the minorities, allowed the minorities to have a special status in the constitution whereby they do not adhere to the uniform civil law, never condemned the other religions to hell, never called them as kafirs or Satans, and so on.  It appears that the media have been on a mission to wipe out Hinduism and demean the Hindu leaders and denigrate the Hindu customs and traditions.  They seem to abhor the largest democracy on the planet.  With all the basic principles of civility, humanity and freedom so inherent in Hindu philosophy, one wonders why CNN, New York Times, The Washington Post, The Independent, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, BBC and many western journalists haves been particularly revolting against the BJP and repulsive against Narendra Modi, even after he was democratically elected by unprecedented majority. They are engaged in a biased witch-hunt than actual reporting. Swapna Dasgupta writing in the Daily Pioneer stated that, “Since the summer of 2014, the foreign journalists reporting India have increasingly come to live in an ecosystem that is both wary of and hostile to the winds of change blowing over India. The Economist doesn’t seem to have gotten over its disappointment that its endorsement of Rahul Gandhi in the 2014 general election was disregarded and the editorial board of the New York Times seems to be dominated by supporters of the Maoist insurgency and Kashmiri separatism. When Modi visited London in October 2015, the Guardian even carried a long article by a staff columnist arguing that the UK Government should have no truck with him.” British Media                 Nitin Mehta has analyzed the British media by saying that UK media’s Anti India bias is all too evident.  Anti-media did not expect the overwhelming majority that elected Modi as Prime Minister. They did not even expect that his government would even last this long. They are shocked to find that his strength is increasing with UP elections. They do not report any atrocities committed daily in totalitarian Muslim countries and how they reduced the minorities (Hindus) to less than one percent. They do not talk about triple talaaq, sharia law, Muslim women rights in Islamic countries. Their life could be in danger to report on these totalitarian countries. Unable to find their space in Muslim countries, the only country democratic country, India, that allows freedom of speech has become their vicious target to criminalize it, demonize it and dismantle it. They made it a point to write dark stories and blow it to disproportionate level and magnify them multifold to sway the public opinion. Nitin Mehta observed “For the secularists, any expression of India’s heritage, culture and spiritual beliefs is anathema. For these social scientists and economists, most of whom are of Indian origin and live in Britain, India always falls short of their expectations. Democracy? It is caste based; it is corrupt. They did not play any part in nation building.” (The Guardian, September 10, 2017) For more than a decade, his critics have been questioning Mr Modi over his controversial role in the 2002 anti-Muslim riots in the western state of Gujarat. He was accused of having done little to stop the riots in which more than 1,000 people died - an allegation he has always denied. These journalists have no respect for the legal system and keep criticizing Modi even though Supreme Court of India has absolved all the charges against Narendra Modi. The Guardian’s hatred toward Modi is reflected on tits editorial and the article published. In their editorial, it keeps harping on the Gujarati riots. It says that the “role he played in the Gujarat massacres of 2002 remains unresolved.” Some of the titles of the articles published include: “India is a ‘republic of fear’. The UK must keep the pressure on Modi,” “Narendra Modi: the divisive manipulator who charmed the world,” “Modi’s government fails to act on rape,”” If Modi is elected, it will bode ill for India's future,” “Narendra Modi: India's saviour or its worst nightmare?” “Narendra Modi, a man with a massacre on his hands, is not the reasonable choice for India”; “India is being ruled by a Hindu Taliban”; and so on. Mihir Bose’s article on 2 August 2017. After listing some Indian achievements, he had the following to say: “After the victory of Narendra Modi the country seems to be turning its back on the tolerant, secular society that India’s founding fathers wanted. Modi has always ridden two chariots: what one prominent Indian businessman, and an old friend of mine, called Modi’s real business of making India prosperous; and his Hindu business of appeasing his fanatical Hindu followers. Modi has proved a timid reformer, whose tinkering has included an overnight demonetization that led to such chaos that people died. In contrast, his Hindu followers have been given free rein to believe that Ram Rajya, the mythical rule by the revered Hindu god Ram, has finally arrived. This has seen a ban on the slaughter of cows, and a growing intolerance of minorities.”                 Amrit Wilson laments about the horrific rapes committed in the name of Hindu nationalism. He talked about two horrific rape cases in Indi and how India is being rocked by huge protests. (The Guardian, April 18, 2018). Jason Burke scathing attack started even before he was chosen as leader of Bharatiya Janata Party. He says that Modi “is a divisive figure in India. Some see him as an extremist who sided with mobs who attacked Muslims in towns and cities across Gujarat, following a lethal fire supposedly started by Muslims on a train full of Hindu pilgrims in 2002 – a charge he denies.” (The Guardian, October 22, 2012). In another article Jason Burke criticizes him for the 202 riots even though, he was exonerated by the Supreme court.  “Repeatedly accused of allowing, even encouraging, Hindus whipped up by hardline activists to vent their fury, Modi has consistently denied all wrongdoing and has been cleared by a succession of high-powered legal inquiries. It was after a key court decision that the UK decided in 2012 to end a boycott of Modi by senior officials. Only weeks ago, the US followed. Nonetheless, Modi has yet to shake off the controversy.”                 Salman Rushdie, Imran Khan, John McDonnell, Fiona Mactaggart, Pragna Patel, Jayati Ghosh, Suresh Grover and other leftist brains published an opinion letter in The Guardian criticizing the role he played in Gujarat Riots. They say that his political ethics and moral character is incompatible with secular constitution. The they conclude that “Were he to be elected prime minister, it would bode ill for India's future as a country that cherishes the ideals of inclusion and protection for all its peoples and communities.” (April 10, 2014). Similarly, Aditya Chakraborty says that Modi is responsible for some of the worst religious violence even seen in independent India. “Given the enormity of the allegations against Modi, this is frankly pathetic. First, the Gujarat massacres have not safely been consigned to the past”           Anish Kuman in The Guardian (November 12, 2015) says that Narendra Modi is clamping down on tolerance and freedom of expression. The openness to the minorities and regional differences is at serious risk. He says, “a saffron-clad army of Hindu activists who monitor and violently discipline those suspected of eating beef, disobeying caste rules or betraying the “Hindu nation”.”  The writer continues to smear the government with his jaundiced eyes with the statement, A Hindu version of the Taliban is asserting itself, in which Indians are being told: “It’s either this view – or else.”” These journalists are ignoring four important points when they spit out their venom.  First that overwhelming majority of the Indian citizens wanted change and voted BJP into power.  Second, Modi is trying to implement what is written in the constitution about protecting the cow. Third that majority of the people wanted to see changes in the appeasement policies. Fourth, the many foreign funded Christians are using the funds for conversion of Hindus into Christianity by flouting the Constitutions. These journalists have not yet realized the depth of citizens’ passion to see changes in the government policies. They do not acknowledge that that it was not Hindu militant who went on jihad in Mumbai killing several people, nor Hindu militant that bombed Varanasi, or set fire first to the railway compartments in Gujarat in 2002. By comparing Indian democracy to Taliban government of Afghanistan and other countries, the writer is completely shut his eyes to more than 50 countries where the Muslims have declared their countries as Islamic with no concern for the rights of other religions such as Hindus. In many countries, Hinduscannot even carry the Hindus cannot even carry the picture of their Gods. Journalists have become Presstitudes to the cause of Muslims and Christians who know how to woo them and make them as their mouthpieces. Consequently, they live in a moments life ignoring the realities on the ground and the richness of India’s history. Why India is having with these two religions? This is the country that sheltered Parsis, Jews, Buddhists and other religions and guaranteed their right to worship and helped them to maintain their culture. These religions lived in peace and contributed to the richness of Indian culture of tolerance, freedom and non-violence.  After state of Israel was established, they passed a resolution by saying that India is the only country that has not discriminated the Jews out of 126 countries they lived.  Dalai Lamas praise for India’s tolerance and spiritual heritage was unmatched in the human annals. Then, why Muslims and Christians have problems in India. It because of their missionary zeal to convert India into either a Christian country or Islamic country. They have been working relentlessly and tirelessly to break the backbone of India and consign it to past unknown.                 Ever since Modi was elected, BBC has started a vicious campaign against him labeling him as a “mass murderer” and accused him as a man who started persecuting minorities. BBC is in bed with Congress party. When Home Minister Rajnath Singh (August 1, 2015) stated that Congress government has coined the term “Hindu Terror” to undermine the efforts to deal with domestic terror, BBC jumped into the fray to refute the report that charges Muslims are the most likely terrorists in India along with the communists. Pakistan was places in the first tier that list all the countries that represent the worst situation in the world for religious freedom. Additionally, biggest number of asylum requests come from Pakistan to UK, not India. If the Muslims are persecuted why there is no exodus of them to other countries. BBC wanted to support Rahul Gandhi claim expressed to US Ambassador to India that growth of “radicalised Hindu groups” posed a great threat to the country than militant groups like LeT. BBC would not heed the former Prime Minister Tony Blair who warned that “The threat of this radical Islam is not abating. It is growing. It is spreading across the world. It is destabilizing communities and even nations. It is undermining the possibility of peaceful co-existence in an era of globalization.”   BBC held a program on Modi on May 1, 2015 where guest speakers totally slanted and sneered him.  Modi was described as a controversial figure by all the participants with no other person to challenge in the program. The Programs presenter, YaldaYakim, stated that Modi had blood on his hands and he was India’s most divisive politician.  Anish Kapoor quantified him as “India’s dreamed itself a dream with a mass murderer as its main character”. BBC should have contested these statements by demanding the relevant statistics and compare them with other countries. Priti Patel wrote a letter to BBC Director General bring his attention about the anti-Modi program. “Modi’s political opponents have portrayed him as being ‘controversial’, so by using this reference, the BBC, who should be impartial, is giving acceptance to the political position of Modi’s opponents rather than reporting objectively … Claiming someone who is a democratically elected politician is a ‘mass murderer’ is an extremely serious allegation and unless such a claim is substantiated with meaningful evidence, the BBC should not be broadcasting this slur.” Obviously, BBC would not respond with any kind of justification for their one-sided, contemptuous program on Modi.                 Th Economist also joined the anti-Modi chorus denouncing his as a man focusing on the appearance and loosing sheen. Recognizing his popularity in the public and acknowledging the recent victories in different states, it criticized the demonetization as causing great hardship and disruption.  The paper described Modi not as a reformer.  It claims that GST has become unnecessarily complicated and bureaucratic. “If Mr Modi wants to keep winning votes, he must concentrate not just on campaigns; he must also show that he knows how to run the country. Sooner or later, voters will tire of grandstanding.” (November 2 2017). Similarly, The Economist criticized Modi by saying, “Mr Modi, in short, is squandering a golden opportunity. Some apologists claim that he is waiting until he wins a majority in the upper house before taking on bigger reforms. If so, he has given no inkling of what he is planning. In fact, he has not even made clear that economic reform is his priority.” (June 24, 2017)   US Media The New York Times Maligns Narendra Modi and Hindus The New York Times published articles that are mostly critical of Modi, BJP and any other news critical of India. Their bias toward Modi is vicious and groundless. Even before he got elected, NYT accused him of killing so many Muslims in 2002 without ever mentioning the root case of the unrest. They never indicated that the Muslims closed all the doors of the train where Hindu were returning from Pilgrimage and set fire killing all the Hindus. They could not even open the doors of the compartments and were scorched. After he was elected NYT doubled their efforts to charge him as an extreme Hindutva advocate denying the Muslims safely, Al l the studies across the globe revealed that Muslims feel safer, secure, happier and more comfortable in India than Muslims in their own Muslim countries. The newspaper would not dare say about the minority rights of Hindus in many of these Muslims countries. A Hindu cannot carry even the pictures of their own Gods and Goddesses, cannot read their Bhagavad Gita, and cannot do even the pujas to their chosen Gods in many Muslim countries. Any violation by the Hindus would result either in expulsion, imprisonment or death. NYT has nothing to do with human rights violation in these Muslim countries. No other country gives as many privileges, opportunities and freedom to Muslims in India. But NYT times is not concerned about enforcing the Constitution that requires all the states to protect and preserve the cows.                 Would Muslim counties allow pigs to killed and eat?                 Would USA or UK allow slaughter horses in the US or UK?                 Would USA or UK allow killing of pets such as cats or dogs indiscriminately?          Hartosh Singh Bal wrote an Opinion in New York Times (May 30, 2018) listing several incidents such as no confidence, Supreme Court intervention, Modi government, election commissions decisions and Karnataka elections. The writer’s bias is blatantly visible. All the incidents that he described have not violated any aspect of Constitution. The author says, "As India prepares for the national elections next year, Mr. Modi’s ratings are falling" only to create doubts among his supporters. The author has conveniently negligent the opinion poll conducted few days before he wrote his opinion. Mega Times Group reveals that 71.9 percent of Indians say that they would vote for Narendra Modi. He is one of the members of a fringe group that was supported by the elite groups and the Congress Party who were unable wake up to the reality. These journalists are trying to find niche to accept the fact that overwhelming majority of Indians elected Modi as Prime Minister. But they failed. The writer went as far as accusing Modi as subverting the democracy. He stated that “If Mr. Modi was willing to drown dissent and subvert national institutions when his government enjoyed popular support, how far down an undemocratic path might he and his party go to ensure a victory?” Pew Research published on May 2018 the percentage of people who are satisfied with the way democracy is working. India topped the list with 79 percent. The New York Times would not worry about the way people feel and would not reflect the views and trust of Indian people as they are sold to the special interest groups.   The New York Times has a long history of warped, biased and insulting views toward India and Hindu way of life. They will find writers who are offensive and who can aggressively attack Hindus. Wendy Doniger, Joseph Manu, Arundhati Roy, William Broad, Ellen Berry and other leftist writers whose job it is to demonize India as anti-Muslim and Anti-Christian. Even before the elections in 2014, the editorial Board concluded that, “His rise to power is deeply troubling to many Indians, especially the country’s 138 million Muslims and its many other minorities. They worry he would exacerbate sectarian tensions that have subsided somewhat in the last decade …  Mr. Modi cannot hope to lead it (India) effectively if he inspires fear and antipathy among many of its people” (May 2013). Similarly, the prejudiced, hateful and spiteful editorial stated two days after the elections, ... whether he will be the strident Hindu nationalist who might impose a sectarian agenda on a largely secular state…but he can’t achieve those goals if he exacerbates sectarian divisions, for example, by using divisive rhetoric against Muslims.” This kind of editorial is aimed at pleasing the minorities, elites, intellectuals and Congress Party leadership where the journalists cohabit for their livelihood and survival. Why they completely ignore the wishes of one billion people for the sake of 138 million Muslims? With so much terror inflicted all over the world by ISIS, Al Qaeda and other terror groups, why New York Times would not criticize the Muslims. They must be handsomely paid by Muslim countries to be their succors. They are also in bed with their Christian faith which calls for the elimination of Hindus by conversions. Pope Paul was their mentor who wanted to establish cross over India. The New York Times bemoaned and cried out loud in its editorial “India’s Battered Free Press” by saying that, “Press freedom in India suffered a fresh blow on Monday when the country’s main investigative agency raided homes and offices connected to the founders of NDTV, India’s oldest television news station. The raids mark an alarming new level of intimidation of India’s news media under Prime Minister Narendra Modi … Since Mr. Modi took office in 2014, journalists have faced increasing pressures. They risk their careers — or lives — to report news that is critical of the government or delves into matters that powerful politicians and business interests do not want exposed.” (June 7, 2017). In another editorial, NYT talks about alarming rise in the mob attacks and cried out loud that under Modi government “what has actually been unleashed is virulent intolerance that threatens the foundation of the secular nation envisioned by its founders.” (July 17, 2017). It never acknowledges that it is only because of Hindu ideology and principles of tolerance and pluralism, Muslims numbers are increasing day by day, If Hindus are made responsible to threaten the foundation of secularism, why you do not see an exodus of Muslims to other Muslim countries. How many Muslim countries are secular where Hindus can practice their religion and worship their Gods.  NYT never acknowledge the fact that Islam is incompatible with democracy, secularism, pluralism and freedom of speech. NYT’s assessment is a blatant lie and deliberately misleading the readers as well distorting the facts. CBI clearly stated that the raid was not about debt payment but about the collusion between Roys and the unknown official at the bank. It is a criminal conspiracy. CBI says that the raid was financial transgression these investors committed and not interfered with the operation of the programs. NYT conveniently ignored the fact that NDTV had floated 20 wholly-owned subsidiaries in different parts of the world. It would not even acknowledge that CBI raided number of people during demonetization, IAS officers, Bank officials, IT officials, Accountants and so on. This is s not a raid to interfere with free press. New York Time’s vicious, mean, spiteful and rancorous reporting on saree being attributed to the revival of Hindu nationalism and fundamentalism. Even BurkhaDutt, who is an anti-Hindu herself, felt insulted to insult the saree by saying that NYT has become a laughingstock of India. She was appalled at linking Sari to politics and Hindu nationalism.  Sari was the most democratic clothing which cuts across class, caste, religion, region and even counties. The poorest and the richest alike wear sari. Dutt says that any suggestion that the sari is about Hindu identity is rubbish and laments on the accusation of NYT that Indian government is promoting Sari as if it was a crime. She admonishes the editorial board by saying that “To fabricate a conspiracy theory around our beloved sari is not only Orientalist; it’s just plain stupid. And poor journalism to boot.”(Washington Post, November 17, 2017). Why do these Western media paint Hindu leaders and Hinduism in such dark sketches? For these liberal, secular and anti-Hindu journalists to be accepted by their peers they must prostitute themselves with India’s media that is controlled by Muslims, Christians and Communists.  Ideological ghettoization of the foreign correspondents starts developing by mixing with their co-journalists of the similar mentally deranged Indian media particularly in Delhi. The Indian media’s anathema to their own culture, hatred toward Hindu leaders, passion to take up the cause of minority rights at the expense of overwhelming Hindu rights, greed for accumulation of unaccounted income, and deliberate effort to ignore Islamic terrorism, and conscious endeavour to overlook Christian deceptive practices to break up India slowly infiltrate the minds of foreign journalist. To remain in the ghetto and to be accepted by Indian media, the foreign correspondents become the mouthpiece of Indian media. They become traitor like the Indian secular and liberal media who are vowed to burn the Hindu house that has given the unlimited freedom. Consequently, they would not be able to break the ghetto boundaries. They dare not go to the villages and find out how the peasants feel about the present government. A single incident is blown up to new heights to make it appear as a routine and normal course of event. They paint every incident as an incident caused by Hindutva forces and flash them around the globe insinuating Modi and BJP. It must stop.                    It is worth looking at the mindset of western journalist as explained by one of the western scholars, Thomas Jackson who penned an article, “Wrong on Right.”  He went to India with many preconceived notions and earful of biases against India to spend few months with right wing think tank. He realised that the Congress leaders, still bitter that it is out of power, are creating false narrative of their own country in the west. He even heard these liberals equating BJP as an organization supportive of the Nazi Party in 1930’s.  He was even warned to be wary of RSS members who would treat him terribly for a lifestyle that is typical of any Western person of his age. He says that he was relieved to find out that every single preconceived notion was false. In fact, he says, “I am no more out of place in my office than any single one of my colleagues would be in liberal metropolitan London. I now feel rather foolish for having ever entertained any of these ideas.” He was even surprised to find out “how unaware and out of touch Western media and left-wing academics are on the topic of the modern Indian Right. Fake news has been the political buzzword of the last year, but just how fake the news on India is still surprised me.” The western media have become succors of the Indian media in painting a nasty repulsive and revolting picture of India. He summarized his experience with these sobering words. “A picture is being painted of a country where you will be murdered for eating beef, attacked for being out in public in a mixed gender group and where the Government is doing everything it can to encourage such actions. The idea that Indian liberalism and tolerance are dead, if they did in fact ever exist, is firmly planted in the mind of the Western media and academics. My experience suggests that this cannot be further from the truth, and I’ve even heard many people I work with make the claim that Hinduism and the Indian way of life encourage liberalism, pluralism and tolerance. I am inclined to believe this.”(Open the Magazine, June 1, 2018                 Has any western journalist read this article?Is there any consciousness left among western journalists to re-examine their philosophy of hatred and their manufactured fake news? They have sunned their objectivity, eschewed their morals, sold their souls, committed to wipe out rich Indian cultural heritage, and acting like stupid persons. They are acting like fools without regard for accountability, responsibility, reasoning, and logic. They misinterpret all the statistics and ignore the reality. One is reminded of Bhartihari who says that you can never change the mindset of a fool (person who lacks judgement).                 You may boldly take a gem from te jaws ofa crocodile,                 You may swim the ocean with its tossing wreath of waves,                 You may wear an angry serpent like a flower in your hair,                 But you’ll never satisfy a fool who is set in his opinions!

Inspired by his mother, he got initiated into Sanyas Ashrama at the world-renowned Guru Pujyasri Swami Dayananda Saraswati’s Ashram, Rishikesh. Under the able guidance of his Guru, Swami Paripoornananda Saraswati imbibed knowledge of Vedanta and Hindu literature, and later chose Telugu soil for restoration of erstwhile glory of the Hindu Dharma. Swamiji established ‘Sree Peetam‘in a serene ambience at Kakinada in the beginning of this millennium.   A temple of Goddess Aiswaryambika and Sudareswara, spacious Gow-saala with all indigenous cows, Veda Paatasala and Nityaannadana facility adorn the pious hub of spiritual and service activities, i.e‘Sree Peetam’. In no time, he endeared lakhs of people of all sections with his scintillating, convincing and thought-provoking discourses in almost all districts Telugu land. His discourses made him as one of the most sought-after Gurus as they are known for inspiring messages with direction to youth on purpose and values of life, guidance to women to make their role more meaningful in family and society, and motivation to senior citizens on leading peaceful and spiritual life. Driven by his innate vision, Swamiji embarked upon a 3G-mission, Gurukulam-Gokulam-Gopuram, making vigorous campaign for the uplift of orphan children, protection of cows and cow-based farming, and restoration of temples in dilapidated conditions respectively.

Felicitation with 'Dharma Rakshak' award by the Golden Temple of Goddess of Laxmidevi, Vellore, TN, on March 07, 2018.   Today, Swamiji is a force to reckon with in protecting Bhaarateeya Dharma and eternal culture of Bhaarat among Telugus, which is also evident from promotion of a news TV channel, Bhaarat Today, in 2015.

NRIs Requesting Response from Police Department regarding Externment Order against Swami Paripoornananda

NRIs Requesting Response from Police Department regarding Externment Order against Swami Paripoornananda                                                                                                                                             August 1, 2018 Mr. Anjani Kumar, IPS The Commissioner of Police Basheerabad, Hyderabad Telangana State.   Dear Sri Kumar: Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) and several other organizations in Dallas Texas met on July 27 and expressed their disappointment, astonishment and shock on the externment of a saintly person like Swami Paripoornananda was for planning to undertake, Dharmagrah Yatra on July 9, 2018, a peaceful march from Hyderabad to Yadagiri Gutta by chanting only Rama nama without any speeches. They only wanted to have darshan of Lord Narasimha. We are shocked at your autocratic treatment of Swami Paripoornananda. The Externment ordered listed several statements that were supposed to “cause alarm, danger or harm to person or property.” These statements were collected from 2017 speeches. There was no trace of harm or danger for seven months as alleged by the Police Department. Then why did the government order externment. Where is the proof that Swami’s statements caused harm or dangers? Did the Police Department has any documentation to prove it’s point? The statements made by Swami Paripoornananda were accurate, historical and proven by the facts. Hajj Subsidy is a fact, Nizam Rule is ruthless, Mughal rulers were violent, Hindu Temples destruction is visible to everyone who can see, raping women is well documented, confiscation of wealth is all known and killing kafirs is beyond doubt. These are the facts known even for an uneducated person. It appears that the Police Department negated the history of the country, refused to investigate the charges accurately or succumbed to the wishes and whimsies of Chief Minister. Can the Police Department refute these facts? Can the Department say that they did not occur? If you are not aware of these facts, we will be happy to provide documented evidence to the Department. We will be happy to conduct Seminars on all the points your raised as arousing Why did Police Department expel Swami Paripoornananda when he did not make the statements in Hyderabad? What kind of statements Swamiji made in Hyderabad to expel from the city? Can you provide those statements? The Police Department used Telangana Prevention of Anti-Social and Hazardous Activities Act that is meant for Goondas to issue Externment Orders. What kind of Goonda activities dis Swami Paripoornananda did? When did he do it. Goonda is defined as a fired thug. Thug is a violent person, especially a criminal. Can you provide any documentation to prove that he is a goonda? The Police Department first gave permission to go on Pada Yatra and within few hours, it was cancelled. What made you cancel it? Did you come to know about any of his GOONDA activities. Can you provide the list of Goonda activities to the public? Did Swami Paripoornananda commit these goonda activities before he was given permission to do Yatra or after he was given permission? If he committed the goonda activities before you granted the permission, how did you miss these goonda activities? If he committed goonda activities after you cancelled the Yatra, you can list those activities since he is under your house arrest. Did he commit any goonda activities when he under your supervision? Can you provide the list of all his goonda activities? You mentioned that Swami Paripoornananda said that “Police are not taking any action against the persons who are insulting the sentiments of Hindus…” Is it not true that the police Department did not take any action against individuals who insulted the sentiments of Hindus? Did you take any appropriate action against Kancha Ilaiah and Babu Gogineni Who insulted the Hindu scriptures and Hindu community? Did you act against Ranganayakamma for her vicious comments on Hindu Gods and Goddesses, insulting the sentiments of Hindus? Christian Bible and Muslim Quran have hundreds of verses demeaning other faiths, belittling Hindu images, demanding for killing of non-believers, and destruction of places where images are found. Did you take any action against Bible and Quran? If the Police Department is curious to know about these verses and not aware of all the insulting statements, we will be happy to provide them for your information to act on them immediately. Did you take action and expel the people who organized the Beef festival at Osmania University? Did you take action against people who are killing Cows even though government is required to protect them? How many cases have you processed against the people who killed Cows, insulting the sentiments of Hindus. You also mentioned that Swami Paripoornananda advised that names of the cities like Nizamabad, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Adilabad and Mahaboobabad. You considered that one to cause alarm, danger or harm to persons. Changing the names of the states, Cities and streets is very common. We can list hundreds and hundreds of such changes. In Telangana, a cursory look into the history will reveal that Hyderabad was changed to Bhagyanagaram and back to Hyderabad, Indur to Nizamabad, Elangandla to Karimnagar, Adlapur to Adilabad, Bhuvanagiri to Bhongir, Khambhammettu to Kammam and others. Why Swamiji statement be construed as causing haram? Similarly, every state has changed the names of either state, cities or streets. Nothing new, nothing demeaning. What action will the Police Department take against Sri K. Chandrasekhar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana, who increased the quota for Muslims in jobs and education from 4% to 12% at the cost other communities, sowing the seeds of discord between Muslim and majority Hindu community? Is he not denying the majority meritorious Hindus the opportunity to excel. Is he not hurting the sentiments of Hindus by giving preferential treatment to Muslims when he announced that Overseas Scholarship Scheme for Minorities introduced in 2015-16 grants Rs.10 Lakhs per Student and one-way Airfare to those minorities travelling abroad for higher education in foreign universities. GHHF can rebut all the charges against Swami Paripoornananda. The five-page “Externment Order” is baseless, frivolous, biased and highly prejudiced. It is looks like a hatchet job either to please the Chief Minister or to silence the Hindus by denying their fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Many of the so called “acts” he attributed to Swami Paripoornananda are real facts. They do not demean, harm or insult other religions. In your interview published on September 2016, you (Anjani Kumar) said that, “In a democratic setup, we should always ensure that there is balance, and not use undue force or try to curb a movement. But at the same time, we should always ensure that the movement remains peaceful, and that there is no damage to property and nobody should feel threatened or intimidated. So, we struck a good balance between the two.” Where is the balance in dealing with case of Swami Paripoornananda? Arresting and expelling from Hyderabad is the balance you talking? Is this the kind of democracy you are talking? Denying the fundamental right for peaceful demonstration is called balancing? Are you throttling the democracy where peaceful demonstration is a curse? Many Hindu NRRI’s and members of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation met on July 27, 2018 and passed the following resolution asking the Chief Minister, and Police Commissioners to take immediate steps cancel the Externment order. “We, the entire Indian Community from Global Hindu Heritage Foundation request the government of India and Telangana to take appropriate actions against any individuals or organizations who are demeaning Hindu Rituals, Hindu God's, Hindu Scriptures and allow freedom of speech and freedom of assembly to gather to discuss things important to the community with a commitment to abstain from insulting and demeaning other faiths. We demand the government to Immediately revoke the Externment order and apologize Swami Paripoornananda Ji for torturous experience while transportation to Kakinada and to preserve the ancient culture of Bharat that is the epitome of tolerance, so essential for human existence.” Global Hindu Heritage Foundation requests the Police Department to be independent of political pressure and enforce law and order to maintain peace and harmony. If you deny the freedom of speech and freedom of assembly with assurance of peaceful march or demonstration, it would be tantamount to the butchery of the democratic values, that made the Bharat envy of the world. That is the birth right of every individual. Any religion or any individuals who demean the religious symbols, Gods and Goddesses and scriptures must be dealt with as per constitution. Hope to hear from you soon.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation condemn the government for house arresting Swami Paripoornananda Saraswathi.

It appears that Government is supporting and sponsoring the people who are hurting the sentiments and feelings of Hindus. Swamiji is only interested in expressing the sentiments of all Hindus who have been denied of their rights. The government is working against Dharma and supporting the unrighteous activities. Dharma is taken back seat in Telangana and adharma is being encouraged. Dharma is stabbed at the expense of adharma                 It is shameful to realize that the government has not taken any concrete steps to arrest people who demeaned Hindu Gods and Goddesses.                   It is disgraceful to see that Sri Swamiji is arrested, in spite of his announcement that it would be peaceful, the government cancelled that permission granted earlier.                 Global Hindu Heritage Foundation condemns the government for arresting Swami Paripoornananda for this reckless, inhuman, political and anti-Hindu action.                 We demand the release of Sri Swamiji and grant permission to proceed with peaceful march from Hyderabad to Yadagiri Gutta. We also demand the government apologize to Swami Paripoornananda and all Hindus for their anti-Hindu decision in denying the permission.   Hundreds of Hindus who were planning to participate in the march peacefully are being arrested, bullied, harassed, humiliated and put in jails. {{album_17}}   Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

THE DOCTRINE OF REINCARNATION: What Hindu Scriptures reveal?

“Birth and death are doors through which you pass from one dream to another. Someone is born on Earth in France as a powerful king, rules for a time, then dies. He may be reborn in India, and travel in a bullock cart into the forest to meditate. He may next find rebirth in America as a successful businessman; and when he dreams death again, reincarnates perhaps in Tibet as a devotee of Buddha and spend his entire life in a lamasery… What is the difference? Each existence is a dream within a dream, is it not?” Pramahamsa Yogananada "It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals… and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise." —Ralph Waldo Emerson The doctrine of transmigration / reincarnation as a dominant ideology has exercised significant influence on almost every aspect of Indian thought. In fact the belief in reincarnation is usually associated with the philosophies and religions of India such as Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains. Although the belief in reincarnation is pervasive in the religious tradition of eastern traditions, it is also found throughout the world. It is also remarkable to find that the belief in birth, death, rebirth and other world is prevalent among majority of the countries. Although majority of the Christians have considered the belief in life after death an anathema for many centuries, the twentieth century is witnessing a remarkable change in attracting all great-religions to the idea of reincarnation.   In Hindu religion, samsara and punarjanma are identified with the concept of reincarnation. Punarjanma is simply defined as rebirth while Samsara is defined as the continuous cycle of birth, death and rebirth.  It is body that goes through the continuous cycle of birth and death while soul or jive remains permanent which is connected to the Paramatma. The belief in samsara is closely connected to the theory of karma which states that every action has a consequence. The previous life experience determines the present which in turn determines the future course of action.    The endless life cycle can be terminated by moksha – the liberation from this cycle by uniting with God. Because of our ego, unfulfilled desires, karma, unfinished sadhana, failure to pay off the three runas (debts), and avidya (ignorance), we get entangled in this samsara.   Swami Vivekananda also talks about “the doctrine of the Atman and the reincarnation of the soul; it maintains that innumerable individual souls, having taken body after body again and again, go round and round in the wheel of birth and death according to their respective Karmas; this is Samsâravâda, or as it is commonly called the doctrine of rebirth.” There are four basic principles involved in the explanation of Hindu doctrine of reincarnation. First, the belief in the permanence of the essential self (Soul, atma). Without this belief of Soul's permanent nature, the discussion of reincarnation is meaningless. Second, the belief in avidya (ignorance) which causes the self assume an individuality of its own resulting in multiple births. Third, the belief in the concept of liberation (Moksha), Moksha implies that one has the potential to realize one's own true self. It is considered the birthright of every Hindu to be liberated from human bondage and be united with the Brahman (God, the Supreme Spirit) provided one is released from the ignorance. Fourth, the law of Karma affects the theory of rebirth. According to this law, every action of the individual leads to an inevitable result, good or bad. The actions in the present life conditions future nature of birth the same way as the actions in the previous life impacted the present life.   Belief in the theory of reincarnation is widespread in many religion of the work at one time or the other. However, contribution of Hinduism to the doctrine of transformation is distinction and more significant. Since the Vedic times, the concept of rebirth has been well established and is abound in the Hindu literature --Upanishads, Puranas, Gita, Itihasas and other books written by prominent sages and scholars. The basic tenets of the belief is transmigration are summarized by Bloomfield as follows: "Every living creature is reborn in some organic shape: every living creation had a previous existence; and every living creature is again and again in the prey of death, until in some life all desire and all activity as the outcome of desire shall have been laid aside.” (1908: 258). W. R. Alger describes the importance of the doctrine of metempsychosis in his monumental work, A Critical History of the Doctrine of a Future Life. "No other doctrine has exerted so extensive, controlling, and permanent an influence upon mankind as that of the metempsychosis, ‑‑ the notion that when the soul leaves the body it is born anew in another body, its rank, character, circumstances and experience in each successive existence depending on its qualities, deeds, and attainments in its preceding lives."     Vedic Period It is believed that the Vedic period was not known to expound the doctrine of the Soul's migration. Richard Garbe observed that "in the ancient Vedic period it had as yet no existence. At the time the Indian people...believed that good men ascended to the heaven to the companionship of the gods... [while] the Souls of the wicked sank down into the abyss of hell." (1921: 436), Albert Schweitzer also stated that "the hymns of the Rig-Veda knew nothing as yet of a cycle of birth." (1957:47). However, S. Radhakrishnan observes that the elements of the doctrine of reincarnation are traced back to the Vedas. "The passage of the Soul from the body, its dwelling in other forms of existence, its return to human form, the determination of future existence by the principle of Karma are all  mentioned.: In fact Upanishads themselves ascribe the elements of soul's migration of the Rigveda. Vamadeva, believed to be the poet of Rigveda IV, recognized himself as Brahman and as a proof he indicated his acquaintance with his former lives as moon and sun. "The Rishi Vamadeva saw and understood it, singing, 'I was Manu (moon), I was the Sun'" (26.1) He further goes on to sing that "while still in the womb, I knew all the generations of these gods. A hundred iron fortresses guard me, but still, like an eagle, swiftly flew away." (Rigveda VI. 27.1) This quotation would be meaningful only if we refer to the eagle as the soul and the iron fortresses as the bodies through which the soul wanders. However, Paul Deussen(1966: 319) states that "The hymns of the Rigveda therefore know nothing yet of a migration of the soul, but teach for the good a continued existence with the gods." Although Vedas did not address the issue of the mechanics of soul's migration, they illustrated a number of instances dealing with the concepts of death and rebirth.   “He, born afresh, is new and new forever." Rigveda X: 85:19) "The ancient goddess [Dawn], born again and again, dressed in the same color." (Rigveda I: 92.10) "I seek neither release nor return." (Rigveda V. 46.1) "The immortal self will be reborn in a new body due to its meritorious deeds." (Rigveda I. 164.48) "With your gentle forms, O known of creatures, carry this man to the world of those who have done good deeds... let his reach his own descendants, dressing himself in a life-span. O known of creatures, let him join with a body." (I. 16. 4-5) These statements illustrate that the Vedic man refused to succumb to death as the final of irreversible phase of life and made numerous efforts to bring the decreased back to life again. One of the hymns describes all the possible places where the spirit of the dead man may have gone and urging to come back again to earth. The places the spirit of the dead man may have gone include: Yama, heaven and hell, four corners of the earth, four directions of space, waves of ocean, shining light rays, the waters and the planets, the sun an dawn, highest mountains, the whole world, the farthest realms, and the past and the future. Since return to earth was considered the greatest blessing, referring to the spirit, hymn states: "may it return to you again, that it may live and dwell here" from all the above mentioned places (Rigveda X 58. 1-12). In a similar manner, another hymn appeals impassionately for the dead man's return, for his prolongation of human life and for rejuvenation of live. “Now may his life be renewed and further extended ...let us do many noble deeds to win glory.... May we surpass our foes by deeds of Valor, as heaven surpasses earth and mountains surpass the plains..." (Rigveda, X: 59)   Although the doctrine of reincarnation in Vedas is not as explicit as in Upanishads, which we shall examine next, we cannot deny its prevalence during the early Aryan and Vedic period. Max  Muller argues that if the references seem rare it is because that "we have no right to suppose that we have even a hundredth part of the religions and popular poetry that existed during the Vedic age." (1899: 41) Upanishads The doctrine of reincarnation deals with the rebirth of the atma (soul) in a series of physical bodies which are basically either human or animal in nature. There are also instances where the soul takes birth in divine, demonic, and vegetative embodiments. This doctrine of reincarnation is more elaborately developed in Upanishads over a period of time. They believed in the continuity of life after death of the physical body and also indicate some definite ideas about the destinies of the soul after it departs the body. The soul passes through different paths, experience the consequences of their activities and are reborn as different persons depending on the code of conduct. "According, those who are of pleasant conduct here-- the prospect is indeed, that they will enter a pleasant womb, either the womb of a Brahman, of the womb of a Kshatriya, or the womb of a Vaisya. But those who are of stinking conduct here - the prospect is, indeed, that they will enter a stinking womb, either the worn of a dog, or the womb of a swine, or the womb of an outcast." (Chandogya Upanishad 5.10.7). Similar discussion was also found where the deeds based on the knowledge determined the nature of birth. "One goes into the womb of a mother becoming incarnated in bodily form; another enters into a plant. Each according to his deeds, according to his knowledge." (Katha Upanishad 5.7). The character, that determines one's position in the future life, is formed not only by action but also by knowledge." Either as a worm, or as a moth, or as a fish, or as a bird, or as a snake, or as a tiger, or as a person, or as some others' in this or that condition, he is born again here according to this deeds, according to his knowledge." Kaushika Upanishad 1.2). Brihadaranyaka Upanishad deals with the subject of death and rebirth. The knowledge gained by performing various deeds in this life along with past experience follow the self after leaving its present body and enters another physical body: "An just as a leach moving on a blade of grass reaches its end, takes hold of another, and draws itself together towards it so does the self, after throwing off his body, is to say, after making it unconscious, take hold of another support and draw itself together towards it." "And just as a goldsmith takes a small quantity of gold and fashions [that of it] another -- a newer and better -- form so does the self, after throwing off his body, that is to say, after making it unconscious, fashion another -- a newer and better -- form suited to the Manes or the gandharvas, or the gods, or viraj, or Hiranyagarbha, or other beings." (IV: IV: 3-4) Based on these statement, it is evident that the new body will engage in somewhat similar activities depending on the previous life’s experiences. The individual self is believed to enter a new body made of five gross elements - ether, fire, wind, water, and earth. What kind of body the soul enters and what kind of individuality it develop depend on desires, words and actions. "As a man acts, so does he become. A man of good deeds becomes good, a man of evil deeds become evil. A man become pure through pure deeds, impure through impure deeds." As a man's desire is, so is his destiny. For as his desire is, so is his will; and his will, so is his deed; and as his deed is, so is his reward, whether good or bad. A man acts in the new life depending on his previous life’s experiences, desires and sadhanas. After death he goes to the next world, enjoys the fruits of his deeds, and then returns to the next life to fulfill the unfulfilled desires. No desires, no rebirth. More desires, more births. "But he in whom desire is stilled suffers no rebirth. After death, having attained to the highest, desiring only the self, he goes to no other world. Realizing Brahman, be becomes Brahman. "When all the desires which once entered into his heart have been driven out by desire knowledge, the mortal, attaining to Brahman become immortal. As the slough of a snake lies cast off on an anthill, so lies the body of a man at death; while he, freed from the body, becomes one with the immortal spirit, Brahman, the light eternal" (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad: IV: 5-7). Karma theory is a very powerful doctrine that holds an important place in the Hindu religion. According to this theory, one's actions, bad or good, in this life one passes into the body of a higher or lower embodiment after the soul departs the body. The numbersamsaras one goes through depends on the kind and qualities of actions. “According unto his deeds the embodied one successively assumes forms in various conditions. Coarse and fine, many in number, The embodied one chooses forms according to his own qualities. [Each] subsequent cause of his union with them is seen to be because of the quality of his acts and of himself."  (Svetasvatara Upanishad 5.11-12) Upanishads provide their own explanation of rebirth. Since Karma (actions) is believed to be an accurate determinant of the state of the mind, it determines the rebirth. They explain the process through which one attains rebirth. A person consists of desire. As is his desire, so is his will; as is his will, so is the deed he does, whatever deed he does, that he attains." (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)   Bhagavad Gita “As the embodied soul continually passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. The self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change.“ Bhagavad-gita 2.13  “For the soul there is never birth nor death. Nor, having once been, does he ever cease to be. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.” Bhagavad-gita 2.20 “As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, similarly, the soul accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.”      Bhagavad-gita 2.22 “It is said that the soul is invisible, inconceivable, immutable, and unchangeable. Knowing this, you should not grieve for the body.”Bhagavad-gita 2.25 After explaining the concept of samsara – the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth – Lord Krishna explains that nobody can escape from being engaged in some kind of activity which traps one to repeated births. But there is a way to escape the samsara to attain moksha.  Lord Krishna says, "Not by abstaining from work can one achieve freedom from karma, nor by renunciation alone can one attain perfection" (3:4). It is through nishkama karma - detachment from its fruits - one is freed from the bondage, free from the repeated births. According to Krishna: “Be focused on action and not on the fruits of action. Do not become confused in attachment to the fruit of your actions and do not become confused in the desire for inaction.” (2:47). As a result, Krishna advises Arjuna thus: "Always act with detachment to the fruits of actions. The one who is acting without attachment attains God" (3:19)   Karma theory explains the reasons for the repeated births and deaths. It is karma that explains the apparent disparity among people, inequality, injustice and partiality. When we look around we see that some people are born poor while others rich; some ignorant, others intelligent; some paupers, others philosophers; some born with deformities, others with good physical forms; some with health problems, others with excellent health; some starve, others over eat; some uneducated, others highly educated; some suffer continuously, others enjoy life; some born in royal families, other in poor families; some with tranquility, others with bad temper; some born in one country, others in other countries; some die within few minutes after birth, others live be more than hundred years; Some always successful, others always a failure; some honest, some dishonest; some commit crimes, some practice nonviolence; some are vegetarian, some non-vegetarian; some are women, others are men; some tall, others short; some with excellent talents and skills, others with no skills, etc. The list goes on. These disparities are mainly the result of their actions in previous lives and the present conditions.  Men's present dispositions are the results of their past, and their present actions create their future.  What is called fate or destiny is nothing but the accumulation of tendencies created by past actions and thoughts.  The present station of the individual can be altered by new actions and thought process.  A man can shape his own future either for this life or for future lives. If we accept that the present condition is the result of the past deeds, a thoughtful man should engage in actions that are conducive to improve his current status and also willingness to avoid the sinful acts. Veil of ignorance must be lifted to allow more knowledge to flow to reach moksha and avoid the samsara trap. Every action has a consequence. A good deed always brings its good fruits while bad ones bad fruits.  You will find in Mahabharata: “Just as a calf finds out its mother among a thousand cows, so also an action that was performed in a previous birth follows the doer.” Yadrisam kriyate karma tadrisam bhujyate phalam, Yadrisam vapyate, bijam tadrisam prapyate phalam. The Karma theory teaches us that we reap what we sow. The fruit of the tree corresponds to the seed that has been sown. Similarly, rewards or punishments always correspond to the kind of activities. That is the nature of law. A person who engages in evil actions cannot expect happiness, peace and prosperity either in this or in his next life.   Yoga Vasishta also describes the past and future lives. “Many are the times we have been together in the past, and also been separated and so again shall it be in the future. Even as a heap of grain removed from granary to granary ever assumes new order of arrangement and new combination, so is the case with Jiva (human being) in the universe through his arrangement.” In a similar vein, Thirumantiram stated that at the time of death, the soul is simply released from the current body and moves on to another. "Even as the snake sloughs off its skin, even as the bird leaves its shell, even as in its waking state the soul forgets happenings of the dream state, thus does the soul migrate from one body to another..." (Tirumantiram 2132) Adi Shankara, the great Advaita philosopher, believed that the whole world is maya (illusion). It is like dream. Ignorance (avidya) of the real nature of life has trapped one into this cycle of birth, death and rebirth. After repeated births, one would realize that the real happiness (ananda) does not come from this physical body but only through higher forms of spiritual experience.  Thus, Adi Shankara begs Lord Krishna to redeem us from samsara in his composition entitled “Bhaja Govindam:” pun arapi jananam punarapi maranam punarapi jananii jathare shayanam iha samsaare bahudustaare kripayaa apaare paahi muraare ("Born again, death again, birth again to stay in the mother's womb! It is indeed hard to cross this boundless ocean of samsara. Oh Murari! Redeem me through Thy mercy."). The question is how do we redeem ourselves from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth? According to Adi Shankra only the knowledge of the saintly seer can bring that moksh (salvation) which recognizes the close relationship between self and the universe, Atman and Brahman, soul and God, and the merging or absorption of the part in the whole. Only when this absorption is complete, the cycle of birth and rebirth stops. Once they merge into Brahman, they will enjoy the eternal bills: "This is a place of intensely spiritual atmosphere, whose inhabitants live, free from disease, old age, and death, enjoying uninterrupted bliss in the companionship of the Deity." Till then, everything is maya (illusion).

Welcome to the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation

Welcome to the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation. Our objective is to protect, preserve, promote, and maintain Hindu culture, Hindu temples, mutts, peethams, endowments, Trusts and other institutions globally. To achieve this objective, the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) formed to take the necessary and appropriate non-violent actions against all laws, policies, activities undertaken by any government, individuals and/or any organizations that adversely affect the Hindu religion, Hindu Temples and other Hindu institutions. One of the main goals is to take necessary legal steps to abolish the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Acts across India and ensure all the Hindu Temples and other Hindu institutions become independent of state government control. Just as other religions and their facilities are independent of government control, the Hindu religion and its facilities should be independent. GHHF will remain cognizant of the status of Hindu culture and Hindu Temples globally and take necessary action to eliminate discriminatory practices. To this end, our group should do the following: 1. Legally contest the sale or auction of Hindu Temples and other institutions by the state governments (including obtaining stay order and contempt of court order if necessary) 2. Legally contest the overtaking of any Hindu Temples and institutions; and Hindu Temple lands by the state governments. 3. Legally contest the advocated policies of the state governments allowing the people to occupy/encroach the Hindu Temple lands illegally. 4. Take appropriate legal action to evict all the people or organizations that have already occupied/encroached the Hindu Temple lands illegally. 5. Advocate the utilization of all the revenues generated by the Hindu Temples and Hindu Lands for the preservation and promotion of Hindu Temples and Hindu culture only. 6. Take appropriate legal actions to prevent the donations and other revenues generated at Hindu Temples being distributed to other religions and general fund of the state governments. 7. Legally contest any subsidy or aid to any religious institutions or a group of people based on religion. 8. Legally contest any policy and law that allows reservations to the educational institutions, employment, promotions, etc. solely based on religion. 9.  Since no other religious institutions are included in the Endowment Act except Hindu institutions, legally contest the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Act in all state governments as illegal and unconstitutional. 10. Ultimate goal is to legally contest the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Acts of all state governments at the Supreme Court to make them illegal and unconstitutional in India itself so that no state government would have control of Hindu Temples and other Hindu institutions. 11. Support the renovations of the existing Hindu Temples and the construction of new Hindu Temples where ever the interest is expressed by the Hindus. 12. Management of Hindu Temples and Hindu institutions should be handed over to the Hindus without government interference similar to the management of Churches and Mosques which are not under the control of Endowment Act of the state Governments. All religious institutions must be free from government control or interference. 13. Bring political pressure on the Governments using different organizations and networking with other organizations having similar goals. 14. Educating the public through prominent people about illegal and unethical acts committed by different governments through the guise of Endowment Act and ensuring the issue becomes visible at the political level. 15. Publicizing the unfair legal policies in print, web, mobile, television and other media channels to ensure this knowledge and discussion becomes common place at the political level. 16. Protect, preserve, promote, and maintain Hindu culture, Hindu temples, mutts, peethams, endowments, Trusts and other institutions globally.   Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

Externment Order from Hyderabad Police to Swamy Paripoornananda

Swamy Paripoornananda was asked to leave Hyderabad for a period of 6 months immediately as per a notice received from Government of Telangana, Police Department on 10th July 2018. It is shameful on the part of Governmet of Telangana, that both Kathi Mahesh who abuses the roots of Hinduism by denigrating Lord Sri Rama and Sri Paripoornananda Swamiji who works relentlessly to promote peace and harmony are treated alike by giving a similar Externment order. Dharma is killed and basic values are at question this day. If this is the fate of a revered Hindu leader and Spiritual Guru, one has to imagine the plight of a simple Hindu citizen in our country.       Please subscribe to Save Temples Telegram channel at

Kathi Mahesh calls Lord Sri Rama a “Cheater” and insults Goddess Sita

PROTEST March Planned from Hyderabad to Yadagiri Gutta on Monday (July 9) by Swami Paripoornananda and other Hindu leaders In the name of freedom of press this crooked and mentally deranged Mahesh Kathi is taking advantage of Hindus and instigating the Hindu community and hurting their feeling. It is time all Hindus stand together to see that government would put him jail for few years.   Now he has brought in Dalit card by saying that why Dallits cannot criticize? Additionally, the government should enforce the existing laws strictly by punishing these individuals who hurt Hindu feelings put away for a number of years in jail along with hard labor. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) appreciates Sri Paripoornananda Saraswathi Swamiji who is ready to take appropriate steps to convince the governments to pass a law to make sure strict. GHHF condemn Mahesh Kathi for his reckless inhuman, uncivilized, barbaric comments on Lord Rama. GHHF condemn Mahesh Kathi for his derogatory, denouncing and insulting remarks against Lord Rama and Sita Devi All Hindus should condemn Mahesh Kathi and see that he is not released on bail.   PROTEST March Planned in Hyderabad on July 9 (Monday) Under the leadership of Swami Paripoornananda Saraswathi, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, Rashtriya Hindu Sena and VHP are organizing a protest march for TWO days.
