GHHF appeal to the followers of SAVETEMPLES.ORG:
Dear Hindu Samudai, sorry for the interruption, but GLOBAL HINDU HERITAGE FOUNDATION really needs you. This is the 1st ever appeal we've shown you. All we ask is $51 [ ₹ ] and it's easy to donate on your phone. We are not greedy, so consider donating just $51 so that you can come again next year; also we understand we are not the only Hindu organization, so we encourage you to save your donation pocket. Please share our articles, to spread awareness and also to help us decide either to reduce the collective donation burden next year or add more Hindu revival causes. We ask you, humbly: Please don't scroll away.
Curious on why we began this appeal?

First off, GLOBAL HINDU HERITAGE FOUNDATION is very pleased by your support in keeping our Hindutvam reviving activities as a continuous effort. We have been brainstorming and working at various levels & activities in withholding our religious freedom with dignity and pride in Bharat.

GHHF runs purely on donations. But it has been unfortunate in recent months for being exhausted in standing against the overwhelming Hindu-extinguishing forces, on various fronts like judicial, cultural, educational, evangelical, jihadical, etc, with present financial aid that we are receiving. We have almost reached a brink of giving up our struggle.

As we all are aware that voluntary service compromises on quality of service, we can achieve quality only with more volunteers. But since we have too few voluntary people on the ground, we have injected salaried employees, welcome gifts to Gharwapasis, daily gifts to Bala Samskar kids, helping poor temple priests, goushalas & temple rennovations, legal maintenance, etc. And this in turn is now becoming a bottle neck to achieve financial fulfillment every month/year. All we ask is $51 per year. More members, less collective burden, more service.

How long do we run this drive?
OK. Now that we began apologizing for interrupting you, please feel free to get interrupted during Kartheeka maas (around November). Well, religions of Tithe and Zakat/Jiziya do suck up to 10% of the income by appealing every month. Let us all Hindus get used to be reminded once an year as a small effort to forward a step towards the revival of Hindutvam.

Seminar on management of Hindu temples flays Endowments Department for its failure to maintain them



Matters of faith: Kshetadhara Ramanuja Jeeyar Swami of Sri Jagannadhaswami Matham at a seminar in Hyderabad on Saturday. Others on the dais are T.S. Rao, former DGP, and M.V. Soundararajan, president, Temples Protection Committee .

HYDERABAD: The Endowments Department on Saturday came in for strong criticism from speakers representing a cross-section of society for its failure to ensure proper upkeep of temples.

They expressed their views at a seminar on ‘Management of Hindu Temples in Andhra Pradesh – Need for Reforms’ organised by Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi. Many of them temple administration should be handed over to a Dharma Prachara Parishad and temple revenues used solely for improvement of temples and propagation of Hindu religion.

Principal Secretary, Endowments, I.V. Subba Rao, in his response, explained how the Government was trying to effect changes in the system by constituting an Advisory Council for temple administration, a Sanatana Dharma Parishat and the plans on the anvil to amend the Endowments Act. He said that an amendment Bill would be introduced in the next session of Assembly.

Also, Mr. Rao said it was proposed to have a ‘Nigamama Parishad’ and an Institute of Temple Management to handle training needs and chalk out modules. He recalled his days as Executive Officer, Tirumala – Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD), when a comprehensive training programme was chalked out to increase awareness among the 13,000-odd employees of TTD.

Among those who criticised the Government, were Ramachari, president, State Archaka Sangam, Goparaju Venkateswarlu, president, Viswadharma Parishad, Guntur and R. Krishnaiah, president, AP Backward Classes Association. All of them stressed the need for every Hindu to come together to propagate Hindu principles, protect the 32,000-odd temples in the State.
