Date: August 25, 2011
“To be free from all egoistic motive, careful of truth in speech and action, void of self-will and self-assertion, watchful in all things, is the condition for being a flawless servant.”Sri Aurobindo
Sri Kamal Kumar Swami was invited by Telugu Association of North America (TANA) at attend the 18th Annual Conference and delivered a powerful lecture on the current position and plight of Hindu Temples, his involvement in bringing awareness to the masses about the state government’s total control of majority of Hindu Temples, and his efforts to stop the hemorrhage of Hindu Temple money, lands and jewelry. He visited many cities, gave numerous speeches, met thousands of people and made aware of the plight of Hindu Temples caused by the passage of Endowment Act in different states. His US tour was successfully conducted making people aware of the anti-Hindu forces that are conspiring to malign the Hindu faith and destroy Hindu Temples.
Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi (HDPS) and Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) are engaged in addressing the plight of Hindu Temples caused by the successive governments over a period of several years. They have caused enormous damage to the psyche of Hindu mind. Their policy of divide and rule as well as excessive incentives to select prominent Hindupeople silenced their voice, lulled their thinking, blunted their desire tospeak out and stopped their involvement in the Temple matters. GHHF andHDPS are committed to continue the fight to bring needed changes in the management of Hindu Temples and to repeal the Endowment Act.
Sri Kamal Kumar Swami, the president of HDPS (Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi) is a fearless and tireless fighter who is fighting against the Government which is looting the resources of Hindu Temples driving them to extinction in some places. He took herculean task of conducting two successful Padayatras walking 8,500 kilometers visiting thousands of villages in every district of Andhra Pradesh, bringing awareness to more than 10 million people, covered by nearly 250 media articles. Working with GHHF he brought several lawsuits against Government, he was recognized by media as a leader who openly talks about injustices inflicted on the Hindu community.
What is the Mission of GHHF and HDPS?
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation and Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi were established in 2006 with sole mission of freeing the Hindu Temples from the government control at the state and central government level. All four southern state passed Endowment Act taking over all Hindu Temples earning more than 50, 000 rupees. Most of the Northern state took over the selected, rich Temples making crores of rupees. All the decisions about the management of lands, distribution of funds, selection of the employees, salaries and promotions of these employees, appointment of Executive Officer and Board of Trustees, appointment of the priests, record keeping of jewelry, auctioning of lands, and host other areas are made by politicians. These politicians with vested interests and with an eye for vote bank politics appoint non-religious, secular and some times Christians and Muslims also.
The politicians at the State and central level do not even consult the Acharyas, Sadgurus, Peethadhpatis, Swamijis or Hindu religious scholars on many issues pertaining to the Hindu religious institutions. The people who were appointed to these positions to the most sacred places for Hindus include liquor barons, people who illegally usurped the lands of the Temples, and people with criminal records.
Hindus must get united and champion the cause of freeing the Hindu Temples from the clutches of government control. You may wonder as to why Mosques and Churches are not under control? They are united in their resolve to confront the government, change the government, and through the “rascals” out. In spite of their differences among themselves, they set aside their differences for the promotion of their religion. They take pride in being whatever religion they belong. They are not ashamed to say that they are either Christians or Muslims. What happened to these Hindus? What they cannot identify themselves as Hindus. They become so selfish in their personal interest to make money with no regard for morals and guidelines, to advance in their careers at the expense of other qualified people, to scale the political ladder to take advantage of the political power, and to please the political cronies for power, they are ready to shed their religion, sacrifice their family members, mortgage their own country, and stab their own mother and motherland. Many Hindu have become slaves. They are no more than robots who can be controlled by remote devices called crooked politicians. It is time for all the Hindus to realize the price of loosing the freedom. Once it is lost, it is list forever. That is what happened during the Islamic and British rule. Hindus have to shed their slavish mentality and should be independent thinkers thinking of their country first and their religion. Once they loose their grip over their religion, they will be like caged animals who cannot free themselves.
GHHF and HDPS are committed to champion the Hindu interests by advocating the importance of freeing the Hindu Temples from the government control; reminding the Hindus of their rich, timeless, eternal cultural heritage passed on from ages; appraising the Hindus of their time tested storehouse of literature such as Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas, Itihasas, Shastras and other sacred scriptures; informing the Hindus of the greatness of their Gurus, Rishis, sages, saints, and godly embodiments of their unparalleled imagination and intelligence; pronouncing the unparalleled scientific discoveries in all fields mathematics, music, algebra, chemistry, physics, statistics, medicine, metallurgy, geology, planetary system, education, and many more fields; and proclaiming the contribution in the fields of yoga, meditation, karma philosophy, reincarnation theory and others.

Highlights of his TOUR
At Hindu Unity Day in New York on July 10, 2011
“If the Muslim Mosques and Christian Churches are not managed by the Government in India, then how come they manage (actually, control) only the Hindu Temples?” questioned Sri Kamal Kumar Swami, the President of Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi, Andhra Pradesh, India.
He said that the looting of Hindu Temples in India by various Governments continues unabated. It was the blatant discrimination and injustice to Hindus that the Hindu temples are taken over and controlled by the Government, while their respective communities govern the Mosques and Churches.
Sri Kamal Kumar Swami denounced the former Chief Minister Rajashekhara Reddy of Andhra Pradesh, who was of Christian faith, for openly encouraging the conversion of Hindus to Christianity at temple premises. In order to create awareness about their Dharma among the Hindus, Kamal Kumarji has traveled 8,500 kilometers on foot visiting thousands of villages in every district of Andhra Pradesh. Working together with the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, Kamal Kumar Swami has instituted several lawsuits against the Government agencies, banned the conversions of Hindus at the temples.

Many guest speakers from India were invited to speak on various issues related to the challenges faced by Hindu Religion in Modern day.
Sri Kamal Kumar Swami spoke about the threat to Hindu temples due to the Governments attempts to sell the temple lands, divert funds for non-religious purposes, to tamper with the religious rituals and customs, and neglect the proper maintenance of the Temples. He gave numerous examples of how the Ex Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh was distributing the Temple land and making donations to the benefit of other religions, which resulted in the closure, and demolition of many temples.
