Hindu Existence Media Bureau | New Delhi | Re-posting: 8 August 2014:: The world’s largest Hindu temple is about to open in Robbinsville, New Jersey.
The Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) Shri Swaminarayan temple, known as a mandir, is a 162-acre complex which broke ground in 2009 and is set for completion in 2017.
According to The Times of India, 2,000 artisans in Rajasthan are hand-crafting the temples in Italian and Rajasthani marble. The finished pieces are then assembled in New Jersey by a team of master craftsmen.
The first phase of the project, The Great Prayer Hall — with seating for 1000 people — and Shikharbaddh Mandir temple will be inaugurated in August 2014.
Remaining construction includes a youth activity center, visitor’s center and food court, and a second, larger temple, the Great Akshardham Mandir, expected to be completed in 2017.
The current Guinness Book of World Records holder for the world’s largest comprehensive Hindu temple is the BAPS Swaminarayan Akshardham in New Delhi, India, which sits on a 59-acre complex.
Spiritual leader His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj also holds the Guinness world record for creating and consecrating the most temples by one person — 713 temples in five continents between April 1971 and November 2007.

After 86 days, prayers resume at Kedarnath Temple.
KEDARNATH |PTI | Sep 11, 2013:: The deathly silence brooding over Kedarnath since the June calamity hit Uttarakhand broke early on Wednesday morning by the chanting of Vedic hymns as prayers resumed at the Himalayan shrine, 86 days after ravaging floods left over 400 people dead in the Kedar valley.
Shortly after the dawn, as the clock stuck seven, the chief priest of the 6th century shrine, Rawal Bhima Shankar Ling Shivacharya, unlocked the portals of the temple and stepped into the sanctum-sanctorum to perform the puja.
The prayers commenced on Wednesday on Sarwartha Siddi Yog, considered to be auspicious.Uttarakhand chief minister Vijay Bahuguna, who was also scheduled to attend the prayers along with some of his ministerial colleagues, could not take off from Dehradun due to inclement weather.
The Kedar Valley is enveloped in a thick veil of fog and various media teams, which had to come here to cover the ceremony, are stuck in Guptkashi, some 22 kilometres from here, due to bad weather.The Puja began with a ‘shuddhikaran’ (purification) of the temple and ‘prayashchitikaran’ (atonement for prolonged suspension of prayers at the shrine).The chief priest was accompanied by a large number of ‘teerth’ purohits and Badrinath Kedarnath Samiti officials.
The shrine reverberated with the collective recitals of Vedic hymns and blowing of conch shells.
However, the resumption of prayers at the 13,500 ft-high shrine is of limited nature, as no pilgrim is being allowed right now to visit the temple.
A meeting is scheduled to be held on September 30 to decide the date for resumption of Yatra to the famed Himalayan temple.
The temple, cleaned and spruced up for the occasion, came back to life after the deathly silence of all these months.
Prayers at the shrine were suspended after the flash floods wreaked havoc in Uttarakhand, especially in the hill districts of Rudraprayag, Urttarakashi, Chamoli and Pittoragrh, leading to the death of over 600 people as per official figures, and leaving more than 4,000 missing.

Amarnath Yatra 2013. Pious venture to retain Kashmir within Bharat. More than 50,000 devotees have visited Amarnath Cave in five days. 600,000 pilgrims have registered.
Jammu | HE News Bureau | 2nd July 2013:: Over 50,000 pilgrims have already paid obeisance at the cave shrine of Amarnath in south Kashmir Himalayas in the last five days even as the sixth batch of 1,785 devotees left for their journey in Jammu on Tuesday.
A convoy of 70 vehicles carrying 1,785 devotees left from Bhagwati Nagar base camp in Jammu at around 5.05am towards Amarnath to pay obeisance at the holy cave shrine, police said here on Tuesday.
The sixth batch, including 1,395 male, 326 women and 14 children, apart from 50 sadhus, was on its way to twin base camps of Pahalagam and Baltal in Kashmir valley. Over 50,000 pilgrims have paid obeisance at the cave shrine of Amarnath in south Kashmir till Monday evening.
Of these, 35,627 pilgrims paid obeisance of the holy ice-lingam (Barfani Baba) at the cave shrine till Sunday evening, while the rest had darshan on next days. Besides this, 1250 pilgrims flew in choppers to the cave shrine.
Earlier, a convoy of 80 vehicles carrying 2,168 pilgrims left from Bhagwati Nagar base camp in Jammu on Monday at around 5.35 AM for twin base camps of Pahalagam and Baltal Kashmir, police said. The batch included 1,525 men, 460 women and 35 children, apart from 148 priests, they said.
The first batch of over 3,000 pilgrims left for the holy cave shrine of Amarnath in south Kashmir Himalayas amidst tight security from here Thursday morning on 27th June 2013.
The annual pilgrimage officially commenced from Friday (28.06.2013) when the first batch left for the cave shrine from Pahalgam and Baltal, the base camps of the yatra.
The batch comprising of 3,157 yatris, including 563 women and 37 children, was flagged off by State tourism minister G.A. Mir at Jammu base camp.

As per the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) only 15,000 yatris will be allowed to move towards the Amarnath cave shrine everyday — 7,500 from Pahalgam and an equal number from Baltal.
Elaborate security arrangements have been made for the safe passage of the yatra, with sufficient security personnel being deployed en route, to foil any untoward incident, a senior police official said. The vehicles coming into the State are being checked at Lakhanpur and are issued a ‘Traffic Check Sticker’. Besides, high-level surveillance is being done with police forces checking the vehicles at different spots across Jammu city, he said. However, the vehicles with the ‘Traffic Check Sticker’ are not re-checked en route their destination.
Some Jihadi groups of Kashmir have already threatened the Amarnath Yatra 2013, which could not affect to restrain any Amarmath devotees from the Yatra anyway. The Amarnath Yatra will continue upto Sharvani Purnima – Raksha Bandhan falls on 21 August 2013.
After Kedarnath disaster in Uttarakhand, the Govt agencies deployed in Amarnath Yatra are kept cautioned to control any situation in crisis.
This year 600,000 pilgrims have registered themselves for the yatra. Authorities have made it clear that no unregistered person will be
permitted to undertake the journey that passes through some of the most treacherous mountain routes in Kashmir Himalayas.
Over 5 lakh devotees are likely to pay their Puja (ultimate ritualistic obeisance) to Barfani Baba – Shri Shri Amarnath Ji, in this year to carry a mission of National Integration of Bharat. Sri Amarnath Yatra is now turned very significant as a pious venture to retain Kashmir within Bharat to curb Jihadi threats to separate Kashmir from our holy motherland.
For the facilities of the devotee of Amarnath Yatra over 500 Dharmik Organisations and NGOs have opened their Service Centers/Camps for Free Medical, Food, Temporary stay and other assistance. The Shri Amarnath Shrine Board is also extending all possible facilities for the yatris. Details can be obtained from their website: http://www.shriamarnathjishrine.com .

Greetings of Sri Ram Navmi to all.
Ramraksha stotra: Not just a divine chant.
Barkha Mathur | Nagpur | TNN | Apr 19, 2013:: The nine days of ChaitraNavratri, from GudiPadwa till Ram Navami, are filled with chants of Ramrakshastotra. The same can be heard at temples, homes and in groups, as people come together for collective recitals.
Considered to be one of the most sacred chants, it has tremendous powers to protect a devout from evil, says Prafulla Nandangiri, secretary of Bhonsla Ved Shala in Mahal. “There are a total of 38 shlokas, of which some like the 35th one is ‘siddha’. Reciting it can provide mental strength to a person, by making him feel fearless,” he says. This is a siddha stotra for complete protection of body and when read 1,300 times, it can destroy all dangers that a person may be facing, says Nandangiri.
“Ramraksha is also considered to be good for a newborn child and the new mother, and is read out while tying the black thread around the neck of an infant,” he says, adding that there are different rhythms for reciting it.
“The stotra focuses on all parts of the body and invokes Lord Ram to protect them. So, it is recited for children and also for those afflicted with some disease,” explains Kapil Chandrayan, a student of astrology. For best results, it should be read in Sanskrit for the vibrations that emanate through chanting of these sacred mantras, suggests Chandrayan.
Recitals of Ramraksha stotra are considered good during Chaitra Navratri as at this time god is present with all his powers in the sanctum sanctorum of temples, says Prasad Joshi, who is studying scriptures. “I recite the Ramraksha stotra as it helps me to master incantation of different chants. It has been written with anushtup chan as its poetic meter, which is a four-part mantra with 32 letters in one stanza. During these nine days, reading and reciting these sacred mantras is very effective.” <Read details here.>

Bhojshala : Ayodhya of Madhya Pradesh !
‘Bhojshala’ is an ancient and the only temple of Mata Saraswati, built by Raja Bhoj in 1034 AD. (‘See Photo Evidences’) Bhojshala was home to thousands of students and scholars and it was main centre of education. Attacks on Bhojshala started from 1305 AD and Muslims built today’s Kamal Moulana dargah near Bhojshala. (‘Read Detailed Timeline of Facts’)
Bhojshala has become victim of Governments of Madhya Pradesh due to appeasement of Muslims for votes. Today Archeological Survey of India (ASI) allows everyone to go inside Bhojshala ‘as a tourist’ with fees. On tuesday, Hindus can enter in Bhojshala and they are allowed to take flowers and akshata. But since the new idol of Vagdevi is seized by Madhya Pradesh government and kept in Gwalior jail, Hindus can’t offer anything to Saraswati Mata. On friday, Muslims are allowed to offer Namaz in Bhojshala complex. Vasant (Basant) Panchami, also known as Mata Saraswati Jayanti is the only day in the year on which Hindus are allowed to perform full-fledge puja by taking idol or photo of Mata Saraswati inside Bhojshala. So Muslims can offer Namaz in Bhojshala 52 times in a year, but Hindus can perform puja only once in a year. It should be noted that Dhar, where Bhojshala is located, has 16 mosques to offer Namaz.
What do you want in Bhojshala on this Vasant Panchami (15th February 2013) - Puja or Namaz ?
In year 2006, Vasant (Basant) Panchami was on friday, so the demand of the Hindus to perform puja in Bhojshala for the full day was refused and the police also used force against Hindu devotees and arrested many. Now this year 2013, again Vasant (Basant) Panchami happens to be on friday and Hindu Devotees are demanding to perform puja for the whole day and restrict Muslims to offer Namaz in Bhojshala on this day. Also the BJP Govt. should release Vagdevi (Mata Saraswati) idol from Gwalior Jail, which was installed by Hindus in Bhojshala.
For details refer tabs ‘Timeline of Facts‘ and ‘Photo Evidences‘.
O Hindus, take up this challenge and do your duty towards Dharma !
- on 15th February 2013, ‘Bhoj-shala’ should be made available to Hindus instead of Muslims for ‘namaz’, as it is the day of Vasant Panchami falling on Friday.
- The Government should release the idol of Shri Vagdevi made of ‘Ashta-dhatu (8 metals) from the Gwalior jail.
- From the evidences, it is amply clear that Bhojshala is nothing but a Hindu temple and hence it should be handed over to Hindus completely.
- The Government should restrict Muslims permanently to enter and offer Namaz in Bhojshala.
- Today it is observed that few fanatics and miscreants are damaging ancient idols of Deities and other signs of temple. This damage should stop immediately and Government should ensure that these idols and signs should not get harmed.
- Bring back the original idol of Shri Vagdevi from London Museum.

Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee resolved to postpone all ‘Jagaddhtri Puja’ at Tehatta Town.
Upananda Brahmachari from Tehatta | 19th Nov. 2012 :: Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee resolved to postpone all ‘Jagaddhtri Puja’ in Tehatta town this year in a protest of ‘trigger happy’ Police Firing on 14-11-2012 and ‘Obstinate Pro-Muslim’ Administration.
On Monday evening the meeting between administration and police led by Sri Sudipto Bhattacharjee – SDO, Tehatta and the Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee led by Sri Amarnath Biswas found no amicable settlement as the Puja committee of PWD Para Baroari Puja Committee wanted to perform a symbolic ‘Ghat Sthapan Puja’ at least in the very place of last year Puja and the Administration and Police negated it out rightly.
This year Shri Shri Jgaddhatri Mata Puja falls on and from 19th Nov to 23 Nov according to Bengali Hindu Calender and Chandan Nagar (Hoogly) and Tehatta (Nadia) are the most renowned places in West Bengal for conducting the same with special grandeur and most spectacular celebrations.
For the obstinate and pro-Muslim decision of the Tehatta administration and the policy of TMC (Total Muslim Congress as the people of Bengal usually name the Trinmool Congress), compelled the Puja Coordination to all 56 ‘Barowari’ and Sarvojanan’ Jagaddhatri Pujas of Tehatta, including the PWD Para Barwari Puja where TMC – MP (Member of Parliament) and eminent Benagli Film star , Sri Tapas Pal came to inaugurate the puja just last year.
A senior member of the Puja Coordination Committee told the Hindu Existence Team that “the land of ‘Eidgah’ and ‘Barowari Puja Place’ both are part of Vested and PWD lands. The Muslims are allowed to encroach the land permanently with boundaries under the blessed State Islamic policy, but a symbolic ‘Ghat Sthapanam Puja’ is not allowed in the previous year’s puja place by the same administration and ‘trigger happy’ police. This is too much. PWD lands, roadsides, most of the market places and crossing places are under the clutch of Muslim public and land grabbers in Nadia. But, police and administration have now perhaps directed only to uproot all the rights of Hindus in Nadia to make Nadia a Muslim majority district.” However, Nadia (Tehatta is one of the four subdivisions in the district) is a bordering district of West Bengal, adjacent to Bangladesh, where the Muslim infiltration, cross border smuggling, illegal cow and arms trading, net of fake Indian currency and obviously Islamic fundamentalism are seen in a very optimum level.
After the police violence and firing upon the peaceful demonstration of Hindus lead by the Tehatta Jagaddhatri Puja Coordination Committee and ‘Tehatta bandh’ convened by Tehatta Business Owners Association on 14th Nov at Haulia (spelt as Howlia also) Crossing (where a person Ashoke Sen was died at Police Firing by SDPO himself), the insane SDPO, Dr Shailesh, IPS lodged a FIR (Police Case No. 825/2012) against 18 Hindu persons by their particular names in Tehatta police station in Nadia. It has been reported that Police is trying to connect RSS and other Hindu organisation in that violence unreasonably under the instruction of State Administration from Writers’ Buildings, Kolkata.
Marvellously, the SDPO, Tehatta has determined Sri Pintu Sarkar, a sub-inspector of Tehatta police station as the investigation officer into the case. This Pintu Sarkar, SI, himself is an accused of police firing case in which a housewife was killed at Bogula of Hanskhali in Nadia in a Vijaya Dashmi Immersion procession on 7th Oct. 2011. A case is going on under section 302 of IPC against Sri Sarkar in the Hon’ble Calcutta High Court in this matter, so far the reports gathered by Hindu Existence Forum.
Both the state leaders of Congress and CPIM of West Bengal, vehemently opposed the recent police firings in West Bengal under a TMC ruling and macaronic Mamataz Banu Arjee advocating ‘Change’, ‘Development’, ‘Party Discipline’, ‘No Confidence Motion in Parliament with BJP support’ and obviously for her fantasy of an Islamic West Bengal.
While leader in opposition in West Bengal Assembly, Dr Surjyokanto Mishra (CPIM) accused Mamata Banerjee for playing her Communal Cards for Muslim votes in the ensuing WB Panchayet election, Sri Adhir Ranjan Roy Chowdhury, veteran Congress leader and Rly Minister of State, GOI blamed the West Bengal Chief Minister for her inappropriate steps in which the communal situation in WB is rapidly engendering the public in her culpable regime.

President Mukherjee conducts rituals at hometown.
IANS | Mirati, Birbhum, West Bengal, October 21, 2012 :: President Pranab Mukherjee rendered priestly duties on Sunday, donning the special puja robes, and performed customary Mahasaptami rituals for the Durga puja at his ancestral home in West Bengal’s Birbhum district. Accompanied by wife Shuvra, Mukherjee arrived at his ancestral residence in Mirati village from his sister’s house in Kirnahar early in the morning to start the Puja celebrations.
The ‘Nabapatrika snan-o-sthapan’, which is the ritual to install the idol of the deity, was performed by Mukherjee’s son Abhijit. Previously the custom was carried out by Mukherjee but this time he only walked up to the canal where the traditional ‘Kola bou’ (tender banana plant) was bathed early in the morning.
After the ‘Pran Prathistha’, or giving life to the deity, Mukherjee chanted hymns and did the Chandipath. The Chandipath was done inside an enclosure and camera persons were not allowed inside.
The Mahasaptami puja rituals concluded with an ‘arati’ which Mukherjee conducted wearing silk dhoti and a silken stole draped around his shoulders.
During the arati, he sought blessings for all. “I wish and pray to god to bless everybody,” he said.
Villagers in large number gathered to see Mukherjee perform his maiden Durga puja after becoming the president of the country.
The rituals were conducted by Mukherjee amid elaborate security arrangements.
For years, the veteran leader has been conducting the Durga Puja rituals at Mukherjee Bhawan, and has steadfastly stuck to the routine by taking out time during the festival despite his busy schedule as in charge of various constitutional and political posts.
The president was later to meet students of his alma mater, Kirnahar Shib Chandra High School, at the nearby Kirnahar town. He would inaugurate a permanent exhibition “Pranab’s School – School’s Pranab” showcasing different phases of his life.
Mukherjee touched down in his native village, some 170 km from Kolkata, on Saturday evening.
He will return to Kolkata Oct 23 evening before returning to Delhi.

Celebrate Ganesha Festival as per ‘Dharma-shastra’ in an ideal manner avoiding malpractices ! – HJS
O Hindus! Don’t get misled by propagation against Dharma by the Government and anti- Dharma Organisations !
Mumbai | 12-09-2012 – Lokmanya Tilak started public celebration of Ganesha Utsav (Festival) with the aim of unification of Hindus, protection of Nation and creating awareness amongst people towards Dharma; however, the festival presently celebrated indulging in various malpractices like installing weird idols of Deities, drinking liquor in pandals, noise pollution, teasing women, organising uncivilized programs, air pollution, costly decorations etc., keeps away from the basic purpose of celebration as also eliminates sanctity of the festival. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has been running campaign for the past 9 years for creating awareness towards serving the original purpose of celebrating Ganesha Festival. This campaign has been receiving good response from Police, public Ganesha Festival Committees (committees) and Ganesha-devotees.
HJS has made an appeal that all committees should celebrate this festival as per Dharma-shastra avoiding malpractices so as to acquire the grace of Sri Ganesha. HJS has also appealed to all Ganesha-devotees to use idols made of clay as prescribed by Dharma and worship it with devotion. Immersion of the idol should be done in flowing water or natural water resources as per the science.
Points in the discussion:
1. Why issue of pollution is raised only during Hindu festivals?
2. Negligible pollution.
3. Anti-Dharma ANiS and Govt. mislead people.
4. Desecration of Ganesha and unwarranted expenses in immersion of idols in artificial water tanks.

Holy Message of H.H. Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale, Sanatan Sanstha in the event of Sri Guru Purnima.
O Hindus ! Become the immortal flame in the historical chapter on establishment of the Hindu Rashtra and preserve the heritage of Guru-disciple tradition !
Gurupournima is the day of offering gratitude unto the Guru ! The real mission of the Guru is to guide the society (that is lost in materialism) towards Spirituality and take the true disciples towards Moksha (Final Liberation). The true disciples too follow this path and participate in the samashti (for the sake of the society) mission throughout their life. Offering the self physically, psychologically and economically to the samashti mission of the Guru is true gratitude unto the Guru ! Contribution of the Guru-disciple tradition to the samashti has been immense. This glorious tradition has emancipated the life of the Hindu society on moral, cultural and spiritual fronts.
History is testimony to the fact that whenever there has been a decline of Hindu Dharma, the Guru-disciple tradition has directly participated in the mission of reinstatement of Dharma.
Today, there is a decline of Hindu Dharma. The rise of Raja-Tama-predominant forces is causing decline in sattvikta (Sattva-predominance). Since the society is indulging in adharmik (Unrighteous) practices, the spiritual strength of the Nation is weakening. This has given rise to deceit and hypocrisy in the society. Corruption and immorality are on the ascent everywhere. There is rise in wrongdoings in the name of religion. In short, the very soul of Sanatan Dharma has disappeared, and what remains is its lifeless shell. This is the single reason why reinstating of Dharma has now become necessary. Under the prevailing circumstances, reinstatement of Dharma means establishing a Hindu Rashtra on the foundation of Dharma. This Nation will then have an ideal system of governance. This system will be the true alternative to the present day corrupt democratic system, which has caused deterioration of Bharat in every field and has led to decline of Hindu Dharma.
Brahmatej (Radiance of Brahman) and Kshatratej (Radiance of warrior) are two aspects essential for the reinstatement of the Dharma. Most Saints and spiritual organisations such as Sanatan Sanstha are striving hard for enhancing the spiritual power (nurturing Brahmatej) of the Nation on the strength of their sadhana. While many Nation and Dharma loving organisations, periodicals and intellectuals are involved in nurturing Kshatratej at the physical, psychological and intellectual levels to change the dire state of the Nation, the mission needs to progress as outlined ahead.
A. Physical : This involves physical participation for the reinstatement of Dharma. For example, preventing harm to Dharma, organising protests, retaliatory action etc. This is 10% important as per the times.
B. Psychological : Educating Hindus about the mission and motivating them towards action as per the principle, ‘There can be no action unless emotion for the Nation and Dharma is awakened’. This can be achieved through educative writings in newspapers etc., through discourses etc. This also has 10% importance as per the times.
C. Intellectual : Giving direction to the Hindu society for reinstatement of Dharma. For example, conducting a detailed analysis of calamities affecting the Hindus, providing intellectual strength to Hindu organisations etc. This too has 10% importance as per the times.
D. Spiritual : This involves spiritual practice performed for bestowing spiritual strength to the physical, psychological and intellectual activities carried out for reinstatement of Dharma. For example, chanting or performing Yadnya (Sacrificial fires) to accomplish a task. This has importance of 70% as per the times.
As per the times, with the Guru-disciple tradition and spiritual sects, every Hindu participating in the task involving Kshatratej (of the physical, psychological and intellectual level) and Brahmatej (of the spiritual level) as per the ability and sadhana, amounts to preserving the Guru-disciple tradition ! O Hindus ! Be active and contribute to the reinstatement of Dharma from this year’s Gurupournima and become the immortal flame in the historical chapter on establishment of the Hindu Rashtra !
- H. H. Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale, Sanatan Sanstha.
