GHHF Activities and Accomplishments January to June 2020; Year - End Donations Requested to Continue Ghar Waapasi. Part-1
"After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophical and no so spiritual that the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future.” Anne Besant
As you all aware, that Hindu population is declining due to massive Christian efforts to convert as many people as possible. While we keep writing books and articles, engage in endless discussions, organizing Conferences, and participating in demonstrations, we are losing our Hindus day by day. If all the efforts we were doing till now had some impact on reversing the trend, it would have been great. As we concentrate on out intellectual endeavors, Christians are concentrating on conversion. It is time for all the intellectuals and activists to pause few minutes and look at the ground realities. Our intellectual endeavors and activists’ protests are not reaching the villages where conversion is rampant. You cannot ignore or turn away from what is happening on the ground.
As you know that Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is working closely with likeminded people to do two things to stop the Christian menace:
1. Stop the conversion of innocent Hindus into other religions
2. Welcome back those who were converted to Christianity through deception force, fear, and allurement.
Following are the SELECTIVE Activities and Accomplishments from January To June 2020.

Recently, newspapers wrote about some priests begging on the streets as they could not provide meals for the family.

Muslims menace decimating Secular India. Words of B R Ambedkar and Mohammad Ali Jinnah on Hindu and Hindustan

Karma Theory: Do the Actions have Consequences? Part 2
This is the second article on Karma Theory. Once you click on this link, it will give the link for Part 1.
Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan offers insight into how karma works in terms of one’s own choice. Life is like a game of bridge. We did not invent the game or design the cards. We did not frame the rules and we cannot control the dealings. The cards are dealt out to us, whether they be good or bad. To that extent, determinism rules. But we can play the game well or play it badly. A skillful player may have a poor hand and yet win the game. A bad player may have a good hand and yet make a mess of it. Our life is a mixture of necessity and freedom, chance and choice. By exercising our choice properly, we can control steadily all the elements and altogether determinism by nature. (The Bhagavad Gita. London: Allen and Unwin, 1948)
Swamini Nilooferji spoke on Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living in Hanuman Temple.
On March 7, Nilooferji talked about the meaning and relevance of the verse 16 in Chapter 17 of Bhagavad Gita. The verse reads like this:
manaḥ-prasādaḥ saumyatvaṁ maunam ātma-vinigrahaḥ
bhāva-sanśhuddhir ity etat tapo mānasam uchyate
She explained the real meaning of each of the five words in the sloka. In a very simple and clear manner she described the essence of the sloka with a number of examples.
Karma Theory: Relevance to the Modern Corrupt Society
“If you oppress a man, you will suffer oppression in this or another life and reap the fruits of the seed you have sown in this life. If you feed the poor, you will have plenty of food in this or another life. There is no power on the earth, which can stop the actions from yielding their fruits. Such is the Law of Karma.” Swami Sivananda
Why we Support CAA - every country has its own immigration policy. Why not India? Watch this YouTube presentation.
The people who oppose are either selfish politicians, Muslims, Congress and other political parties, or people paid by foreigners to encourage anti-CAA demonstrations and terrorism.
Every country uses selective method to control the inflow of people from other countries. Nothing new. USA adopted Lautenburg Amendment in 1990 enabling the resettlement of Jews from the former Soviet Union. Later it amended allowing persecuted religious minorities such as Jews, Christians and Bahais from Iran. Later it says non-Muslim minorities from Islamic Countries. Now some Democratic Party Candidates criticize CAA while they supported the persecuted minorities from Muslim Countries.
