Posted by hinduexistence on October 1, 2011

The adoration of Mahashakti in Navarti  divulges the way to remove all evils and inertia.

Durga Puja in Belur Muth

Hindu Existence Desk Kolkata : Amidst vedic chants and religious hymns, devotees worlwide thronged the, Shakti Peethas,  temples, holy shrines as Navratri – the nine-day festival dedicated to Goddess Durga – began Wednesday the 28th Sept, 2011.

Eager to offer coconuts, ‘chunris’, bangles, vermilion and other religious items, devotees in serpentine queues were seen waiting for their turn outside the temples to seek the deity’s blessings.

“It is believed the devotees who pray and fast during the auspicious occasion are blessed by the divine mother,” Dev Narayan Shastri, a priest at the Lucknow Kalibari temple in Uttar Pardesh, India, told reporters.

Besides the Kalibari temple in Chowk locality, a heavy rush of devotees was also witnessed at Maa Chaturbhuji temple in Gosainganj, Bhagwati temple in Aliganj and Chandrika Devi temple in Bakshi ka talab – situated on the outskirts of the city of Lucknow.

“Prayers during Navratra hold special significance as they are answered by the Goddess Durga if offered with a true heart,” said a devotee Satyadev Mishra.

Devotees thronged in front a Temple in Navrati.

The nine nights of the festival are devoted to the reverence of the nine aspects of the divine mother.

Navratri the festival dedicated to the Goddess Durga started from today with absolute devotion and bliss. With the sthapana starts the nine days of fasting and prayers dedicated to the nine forms of Goddess of Power.

The temples have been preparing for this festival from last so many days and today at the auspicious time ‘mahurat’ ghat sthapana took place and wheat seeds were kept for germination. These germinated seeds will be immersed in the water at the end of the festival. However, different communities practice different rituals to offer their tribute to Maa Shakti (Goddess of Supreme Power).

On one hand religious people adhere to strict rules, regular visit to temples and austere life during these days; the youth on the other hand remains busy with preparation of garba-dandiya in the day and enjoying it at night.

The most beautiful Navratri celebration of Udaipur (Rajasthan India) at Sutharwara has also observed a grand beginning of the 9 day festival. It started with a magnificent dance performance by artists of Jasol village of Barmer which has enthralled the spectators.

A large number of firecrackers were busted just before the Maha Aarti took place on the 50 feet high stage where the idol of Goddess Amba is placed. “Nearly 5000 devotees visit this place every day,” says Tulsiram Mali, President of Sutharwara Mitra Mandal.

Since early this morning, large number of devotees visited various temples of Udaipur including, Neemuch Mata, Ambamata, Karni Mata, Avri Mata and Sukhdevi Mata Temples all in Rajasthan.

The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Wednesday reviewed security arrangements in and around the cave shrine of Mata Vaishnodevi ahead of the  commencement of Navratri festival. Vaishnodevi Mata shrine of the most visited Shakti Peeth is likely to draw  thousands and  lakhs of devotees these days around Navratri.

In Indore in Madhyapradesh Several religious processions were taken out in various parts of the city on occasion of ‘ghat sthapna’. ‘Kalash and chunri yatras’ were taken out under patronage of various groups. Special arrangements have been made at ‘devi’ temples like Bjiasan where CCTV cameras have been installed and police and BSF guards will be posted.
In most regions of Gujarat, aarti of Goddess Amba precedes garba, thus setting devotion to the goddess as the common aim of the participants. Through the aarti, all participants pursue, consciously or subconsciously, a common goal for the well-being of the whole society. Their thirst for power is channelised and focused into the worship of Shakti, which is power for the common good. This is the first step towards restoration of social health. The sense of separateness must be replaced by the sense of community if Goddess Amba as Shakti the healer is to work for the whole society.

While aarti reminds participants of the real objective of garba, the distribution of prasadam at the end symbolises the food that is produced as a fruit of the effort of all members of society.

InVadodara and Rajkot and in other cities in Gujrat people dance traditional garba for hours together.

With Navratri beginning on 28-09-2011, Wednesday preparations for Durga Pooja are also in full swing. Widely celebrated in West Bengal, Durga Pooja marks the arrival of Goddess Durga at her father’s place.

The city will see several decorated mandals bearing the idol of Goddess Durga. There will be pandals in Vastrapur, Maninagar, Chandkheda and Sabarmati, among other areas in Gujrat. She will be worshipped for five days beginning from October 1. The last day of Durga Pooja is also celebrated as Vijayadashami (10th day of victory).

Traditional Garba and Dandiya Dances are fully dedicated to Devi Maa.

Speaking  about the festival, general secretary of Bengal Cultural Association (Ahmedabad), KD Adhikari said, “We are having a huge mandal in Vastrapur at AES ground. This is our 74th year of celebration in Ahmedabad, the oldest by any association of Gujarat to celebrate Durga Pooja.”

Hundreds of devotees thronged the Jhandewala Temple to worship Goddess Durga, as the nine-day long Navratri festival boosted the energy of festivity in the capital city of Delhi in India.

The festival is celebrated with much enthusiasm and devotees often fast for all nine days.

Reminiscent of other temples dedicated to the Goddess, ‘Navaratri’ is the special event that is celebrated with full fervor at Mahalakshmi Temple in Mumbai Maharashtra. During the gala time of ‘Navratri’, the temple is decorated from the top to bottom. Devotees from far and near come to pay their homage to the Goddess. Even they don’t mind standing in long queues to have a glimpse of Goddess Mahalakshmi at this time. In this Temple Maha Laxmi, Maha Saraswati and Maha Kali are worshiped with top most veneration and strict rituals.

In Bengal, both in West Bengal & Bangladesh and in Tripura & Assam and obviously in all places  where ever the Bengali Hindus live; they observe the five days Durgotsav as their biggest festival in the whole year as a religious and cultural part of their life. Kolkata the capital city of Paschimbanga (West Bengal) more than 1250 Pooja committees are trying hard to present their best to observe the most lovable celebration of Bengali Hindus with all colors and grandeur. In Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh 196 Poojas are arranged this year with all devotion of largest minority  Hindus out side India.

In the Northern East India, news of Durga Pooja comes in with all enthusiasm from Agartala, Kailashara of Tripura and Guwahati, Kacchar, Dibrugarh and other places of Assam along with the possible arrangements in Shillong in Meghalaya and Imphal in Manipur.

A special programme of Navratri including Pooja, Havan, other rituals including the discourses on spirituality is goning on in the international center of Art of Living in Bangalore, India.

To mark the celebration of Navratri, as West Bengal celebrates ‘Durga Pooja’, Gujaratis ‘Dandiya’; Amritsar in Punjab celebrates Langoorwala Mela dedicated to Lord Hanuman.

Hindu-Sikh devotees also pay obeisance in large number at Durgiana Temple during Navratri festival in the northern Indian city of Amritsar.

Although this festival is not so prominent amongst the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh in his magnus opus ‘The Dasam Granth’ narrates three separate compositions in grace of Mother Durga – ‘Chandi di Var’ in Punjabi, ‘Chandi Charitra 1 and Chandi Charitra 2′ in Braj. (kanwal). Many pious Sikhs usually complete the full reading of Dasam Granth with an emphasis upon Chandi Charitra accordance to the Sikh heritage.

Navratri and Durga Pooja conclude on Dussehra.

Actually from Gauhati to Gandhinagar and Jammu to Rameswaram , the whole Bharat is overwhelmed with Durga Pooja and Navratri.

On the other hand the NRI Hindus are also very much engrossed with the fervor of the festivity and  devotion for a Navaratri and Durga Puja in abroad also. News came in from UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Sweden, Fiji, Malaysia and other places for a Grand Celebrations of Shakti Aradhana and Utsav.
The news of celebration of nine nights came in as the Indo American Cultural Foundation of Central New Jersey would present multiple events at South Brunswick High School and Crossroads South Middle School.
Sri Shubhamoy Das an expert commentator on Hinduism in about dot com gives us a very special feature about  Top 36 Durga Pujas Around the World that may help us certainly to give us an essence of Hindu Life overseas India.
The nine-day festival is mostly celebrated on a larger scale at Sialkot and Rawalpindi in Punjab while a large Hindu population commemorates it in Sindh in Pakistan. But due to the small number of Hindus in Lahore, the festival was not held on a large scale basis, especially because most of it was held within homes.
The whole world is now seeing the way of worship of Mother Power by Hindus and Roots in India. Jai Mata Di. Durga Mai Ki Jai.

World’s tallest Shiva at Murudeshwara Temple, Karnataka, Bharat (India).

Posted by hinduexistence on September 23, 2011


Murudeshwara Shiva Temple

~ by M. Nandakumar
Murudeshwara temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, lies in the holy beach town in the Bhatkal Taluk of Uttara Kannada district in the state of Karnataka, India. Situated between the Honnavar and Bhatkal town(about 12kms) The statue of Shiva here is the world’s tallest (as claimed) and it lies on the coast of the Arabian Sea.
The Statue of Shiva with Ravana handing Atma Linga to Bramhin boy(Lord Ganesha)
The name “Murudeshwara” means Shiva or Eeshwara. The significance of this holy town dates to the time of Ramayana. By penance dedicated to the AtmaLinga, the divine Lingam of Shiva procures invincibility and immortality to the Hindu Gods. Ravana, the Lanka King worshipped Shiva with devotion to attain immortality by obtaining the AtmaLinga. Lord Shiva appeared before Ravana and asked him what he wanted. By this time Lord Vishnu to change Ravana’s mind on behest of Narada. As a result of this plot, Ravana asks for Goddess Parvathi, and Lord Shiva offers him.
On his way back to Lanka Narada tricks Ravana that the real Parvathi was in Pathala. So Ravana lets off Parvathi and went to Pathala and marries a king’s daughter thinking that she was Parvathi. When he returns back to Lanka his mother then asks for linga. Ravana knowing that he was tricked is angry with Vishnu and meditates to please Lord Shiva.
Lord Shiva appears and Ravana asks for His forgiveness. And this time, Ravana requests the AtmaLinga as his boon. Lord Shiva agreed to give him the boon with a condition that it should never be placed on the ground. It is believed that the AtmaLinga was ever placed on the ground, all the powers would return to Lord Shiva again. Having obtained his boon, Ravana started back on his journey to Lanka.
Sage Narada, realised that with the AtmaLinga, Ravana may obtain immortality and create havoc on earth, approached the Lord Ganesh to help him. As Ravana was nearing Gokarna, Lord Vishnu blocked the sun to make it appear as dusk. Ravana now had to perform his evening rituals but was worried because with the AtmaLinga in his hands, he would not be able to do his rituals. At this time, Lord Ganesh, disguised as a Brahmin boy came near him.
Ravana requested him to hold the AtmaLinga until he performed his puja, and told him not to place it on the ground. Ganesh struck a deal with him saying that he would call Ravana thrice, and if Ravana did not return within that time, he would place the AtmaLinga on the ground.As predicted, before Ravana could return after completing his rituals, Ganesh had already placed the AtmaLinga on the ground. Vishnu then removed his illusion and it was daylight again.
Ravana got really angry that he was tricked and tried to uproot the AtmaLinga and destroy it but could not. In a fit of rage he threw the case covering it to a place called Sajjeshwara, 23 miles away. Then he threw the lid of the case to a placed called Guneshwara (now Gunavanthe)and Dhareshwara, 10-12 miles away. Finally, he threw the cloth covering the AtmaLinga to a placed called Mrideshwara in Kanduka-Giri (Kanduka Hill). Mrideshwara has been renamed to Murudeshwara.

Gold coins of Ganga period found from Pachrahi excavation

Author: Atul Kumar | Source: India-Education Diary | Posted by TANN

Pachrahi Gold Coin

The excavations at Pachrahi, district Kabirdham, Chhattisgarh opened many hidden treasures in the Indian archaeology and history. The excavation revealed more than 8 temples, big royal palaces, more than 200 coins of gold, silver and copper coins. The outstanding discoveries are the fossils of 15 crore years old and a large prehistoric site.

The outstanding discovery is the finding of gold coins of Ganga period of Odisha.Gangas were the mighty dynasty of Odisha in the medieval period. In this dynasty one king Chodaganga dev has been considered to be the most powerful king of his time in eastern Inida.By erecting the Jagannatha temple and by increasing the importance of this famous shrine he also earned immortal fame in Orissan history.

During his time he attempted to enlarged his empire in all the directions. So he attempted to occupy the some portion of South Kosala area(Chhattisgarh area).But by that time this South Kosala area had been occupied by  the Kalachuris of Ratanpura.So he waged a war against the Kalachuri king Ratan dev II(AD1120-1135). But the result of the war is not clear.

Howevere the findings of gold coins of this dynasty in the south kosala area  or Chhattisgarh area ,clearly indicates that there was some sort of political or cultural or trade relation between the Kalinga country and south kosala area.

Note: For the first time the gold coins of Ganga dynasty have been found in this area which shows the cultural, political, and trade relation between two states during that period.

Preah Vihear Hindu temple is now ”Free” from Thailand-Cambodia Fire-Fields.

Preah Vihear Temple Sky View

Hindus hail Hague Court decision on famed Preah Vihear Shiva Temple

19th July 2011 05:50:43  ANI || Source : Haindava Keralam.

Preah Vihear Shiva Temple

Nevada (US), July 19: Welcoming the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decision on demilitarizing Preah Vihear Hindu temple on Thailand-Cambodia border, the Hindus have urged international organizations to urgently undertake its restoration work.

ICJ, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations established in 1945, in its decision at Hague (Netherlands) on July 18, reportedly found out that both Parties (Cambodia and Thailand) must immediately withdraw their military personnel currently present in the provisional demilitarized zone defined by it, and refrain from any military presence within that zone and from any armed activity directed at that zone, to ensure that no irreparable damage was caused. There were skirmishes between both countries in the earlier part of the year reportedly causing damage to this Shiva temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Esteemed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) on Monday, said that demilitarization of the temple area would probably avoid the risk of further damage to the ancient Hindu shrine.

Zed, who is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed that international community, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) should immediately provide funding and manpower for restoring this Lord Shiva temple back to its original shape.

These organizations should not shy away to shoulder their responsibility of saving the important heritage of the world and respecting the feelings of Hindus worldwide, he added.

Besides temple repairs, some infrastructure in the area should also be provided for devotees and other visitors, he said.

Zed pointed out that this landmark age-old and revered Hindu temple complex in Preah Vihear province of Cambodia, about 245 kilometers north of Phnom Penh, was important to Hindu heritage and must be preserved to pass it on to the future generations. Damage and deterioration of 11th century Shiva temple was shocking and hurtful to the Hindu community world over.

Lord Shiva, one of the major deities in Hinduism forming great triad with Brahma and Vishnu, was focus of worship of the Hindus, and it was important for them that Preah Vihear Hindu Shiva temple be protected and restored. It was moral duty of the world to keep it intact for the coming generations, he added.

Known as Preah Vihear in Cambodia and Khao Phra Viharn in Thailand, this remote temple had been a source of tension for generations. Preah Vihear was said to even predate Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple complex by about 100 years and its stunning setting made it finest of all the ruins left from the mighty Khmer civilization, Zed said.

Sikh Sangat in Lahore prevented from celebrating Martyrdom of Bhai Taru Singh at Naulakha Bazaar Gurudwara.

Posted by hinduexistence on July 19, 2011

Sikhs kept out of their own temple for Shab-e-Barat

By Abdul Manan || Published: July 17, 2011 || Thankful Courtesy : The Express Tribune.

LAHORE: The Sikh community in Lahore have been prevented from observing a religious celebration at a gurdwara, their musical equipment thrown out and their entry barred, after a religious group persuaded the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) that celebrating the Muslim holy day of Shab-e-Barat was more important than the Sikh religious festival.

Police have been deployed outside the temple to prevent the Sikhs from conducting their religious ceremonies until the end of Shab-e-Barat, which falls on July 18 this year. The Sikh community wanted to commemorate an eighteenth-century saint on July 16.
The Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh, in Naulakha Bazaar, Lahore, is built to honour the memory of a Sikh saint who was executed in 1745 on the orders of the Mughal governor of Punjab, Zakaria KhanEvery July, the Sikh community has held religious ceremonies to commemorate his sacrifice in the service of humanity.

Bhai Taru Singh was executed in 1745 on the orders of a Muslim Governor.

While the temple was taken over by the ETPB after Partition, the Sikh community had been allowed to continue using it with relatively few restrictions.

Until four years ago.
It was then that a gang of young men from the Dawat-e-Islami, a Barelvi proselytising group, claimed that the gurdwara was located on the site of the burial place of a fifteenth century Muslim saint, Pir Shah Kaku. The group claims that Kaku was the grandson of Baba Fariduddin Ganjshakar, an implausible claim since Ganjshakar died in 1280, while they claim that Kaku died almost 200 years later, in 1477.
The Sikh community had approached the ETPB, which had then allowed both communities to observe their religious rituals according to their own beliefs at the temple. The group used it every Thursday for prayer services while the Sikh community used it once a year for the anniversary of Taru Singh’s martyrdom.
This year, however, when young men from the Sikh community went in to set up their musical instruments on July 13, they were thrown out by the men from Dawat-e-Islami and prevented from re-entering.
Members of the Sikh community, many of whom fear to be identified, said that the leader of the group of men, Sohail Butt, claimed that the temple was now a mosque and that they would not be allowed to bring in their musical instruments any more.
Butt admitted to preventing the Sikhs from performing their ritual, claiming that the temple was inside the courtyard of the mosque.
“Shab-e-Barat is more important than the Sikh ritual,” Butt said, adding that the ETPB had accepted his group’s stance.
Officials from the ETPB admit that they have asked the Sikh community to postpone their celebrations until after Shab-e-Barat.

Temple treasures belong to royal family : Sankaracharya

Posted by hinduexistence on July 6, 2011

Sree Padmanabha Temple and Kanchi Seer

Sree Padmanabha Temple treasures belong to Travancore royal family : Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati.

Source: PTI || Date: 7/5/2011 12:15:10 PM || News Bharati.

The Golden Padmanabha of Sree Padmanabha Temple of Thiruvananthapuram

Kanchipuram (TN), 5 th July 2011. Negated any other option, the Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi stated that the huge treasures, near Rupees 100000 crores in current valuation as found in Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram were the “exclusive property” of Travancore royal family that dedicated their kingdom to the presiding deity of the temple.

“”For long the erstwhile royal family was the custodian of the temple and they dedicted their kingdom to Lord Sree Padmanabhaswamy.The treasures were offerings made by erstwhile rulers to the temple, hence the recoveries belonged to the royal family”, he told PTI here.
“However, the treasures should be kept in the temple cellars itself”, he said.
The cellars of the temple, closed for several decades, were ordered to be opened by the Supreme Court to prepare inventory while considering a private petition recently.
The deity of Padmanabha Swami Temple is the family deity of Travancore royal family. Members of the erstwhile royal family had dedicated their kingdom to the deity and pledged that they will live as servants of Padmanabha. The Shrine is run by a trust floated by the Travnacore royal house.Vast collection of gold, silver, precious stones and priceless jewellery were discovered in the cellars of the temple while preparing the inventory.” [e PTI News].
Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi of Kanchi Kamkoti Peetham hinted the tradition of Sanatana Bharat, where the many ancient Hindu Kingdoms were operated by the King under the dictum of the Guru (Mentor-Path Finder)and as a servant of the People and People’s God. The people and the King of Travnacore enriched this ancient temple as the richest Hindu Deity in this world so far.
The Travancore royal family did follow the tradition to be the servant of Lord Padmanabh here. Sankaracharya of Kanchi Mutth reminded the glorious past of Hindu dynasty of King Janaka under the blessings of Saint Yagyavalkya, King Vikramaditya under the teachings of Kautilya, King Harihar and Bukku with the inspiration of Vidyaranya Swami or Chatrapati Shivaji offered everything to Devi Bhavani and Samrath Guru Ramdas Swami.
The Sankaracharya vehemently opposed the present Govt.’s attitude to denounce the Sanatana Hindu Dharma by some of its key functionaries in Congress and the tendency to grab Temple Properties of Hindus through an unprecedented pro-activeness for the last 10 years.
The Kanchi seer advocated in favour of keeping the unearthed 100000 crore treasury as temple property under the sacred authority of Travancore royal family.
Undoubtedly, decedents of this Kingdom think themselves as the servant of Lord Padmanabha and they did not stashed any thing out side the Temples or in any Swiss Bank. Actually, the British snatched many things invaluable for Britain from India. One stone harmonium of this Padmanabha Temple was transported by the British to Britain illegally.
The world famous Kohinoor Diamond was also grabbed by the English Men near Agra, when it was being trasported to Lord Jagannath of Puri by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, after he understood the possible aggression of the Brtish rulers throuhout India. [eAgencies]

Sri Sri Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra or Chariot festival of Jagannath Puri  is one of the largest religious ceremonies in Bharat (India) and the world too.  Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra  dates on 3rd July , Sunday, this year 2011. Puri Rath Yatra commemorates the significant journey of Lord Krishna from Gokula to Mathura. This annual festival is celebrated on Ashad Shukla Dwitiya (second day in bright fortnight of Ashad month).

As a part of Rath Yatra, the sacred wooden idols  Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Mother Subhadra are taken out from the sanctum sanctorum of world famous Puri Jagannath temple in a large procession of millions to the Gundcha Temple and remain there for nine days. In three separate Chariots, eye balls of the devotees complete their journey in phases capturing all attentions for more than 8 hours.  Then the deities are returned again to the Puri Jagannath temple through a Return Charriot Yatra (Ultto Ratha) after observing certain rituals. The return journey in Puri is also known as Bahuda Yatra.

For the rath yatra, three huge chariots – each with about a dozen wheels up to 7 feet in diameter – are ritually pulled through the streets, from the Jagannath temple to the temple of Gundicha Mandir. The Raths are replicas of the Jagannath temple and each of them carries an idol – of Jagannath in Nandighosa Ratha, of his brother Balbhadra in Taladhwaja Ratha and his sister Subhadra in Dwarpadalana Ratha.

Unearthed Kerala Temple Treasures reveal a richest Hindu Past. Who ruined this country ??

Posted by hinduexistence on July 2, 2011

Rs. 50,000 cr worth treasure in Kerala temple

Ananthakrishan G, TNN | Jul 2, 2011, 12.11am IST | Courtesy : TOI.

'Ananth Shayan Vishnu' as seen in the Padmanabha Temple

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The legend of El Dorado was definitely not set on the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple. But the seven-member panel, which is drawing up a list of assets at the famed shrine here, had a feel of the lost city of gold as they set foot in one of the two secret vaults located inside the sprawling granite structure which gives the Kerala capital its name.

On Thursday, the team assisted by personnel from the fire services and archeology department opened the locks of vault A to find a narrow flight of stairs leading down to an underground granite cellar. Oxygen was pumped frequently into the chamber and artificial lighting provided to enable the observers to work inside.

What they saw inside was startling, sources said. Gold coins dating back thousands of years, gold necklaces as long as nine feet and weighing about 2.5 kg, about one tonne of the yellow metal in the shape of rice trinkets, sticks made of the yellow metal, sack full of diamonds, gold ropes, thousands of pieces of antique jewellery studded with diamonds and emeralds, crowns and other precious stones lay scattered in the chamber marked ‘A’.

Friday threw up far more surprises in the form of 17 kg of gold coins dating back to the East IndiaCompany period, 18 coins from Napolean’s era, precious stones wrapped in silk bundles besides over 1,000 kg of gold in the form of coins and trinkets and a small elephant made of the yellow metal, sources said.

The vetta/arattu processions of the devotees

There were also sovereigns bearing the 1772 seal indicating they were from the reign of the then native king Karthika Thirunal Rama Varma. There are a total of six vaults marked A to F in the shrine. The A and B cellars have never opened since 1872.


Reports said the value of the recoveries so far from vault A alone may exceed over Rs 50,000 crore. This doesn’t take into account their antique value. With chamber B, yet to be opened, speculation was rife that the shrine would pip Tirupati Balaji, who too has been assessed at a little more than Rs 50,000 crore to a distant second. No official confirmation has been forthcoming on the value of the recoveries.

Devotees thronged to see their Lord

Retired Kerala high court judges — Justice M N Krishnan and Justice C S Rajan — appointed observers by the Supreme Court said, ”It’s difficult to give an exact date about when the stock-taking would be completed. The B and E vaults remain to be opened. We think it may take another week.”

Asked about the value of the assets, Justice Krishnan said the committee was drawing up the inventory of items and were not determining their price. The panel had set out on the job on June 27 and opened three vaults marked C, D and F till Wednesday. Assets found in these chambers were estimated to be worth over Rs 1,000 crore.
The wealth discovery has raised questions on the shrine’s security. As of now, the internal security is managed by the temple employees, but this may be inadequate in the light of the events.
* Gold coins dating back thousands of years, gold necklaces as long as 9 feet and weighing 2.5 kg; one tonne of gold in the shape of rice trinkets; sticks made of gold, sack full of diamonds, gold ropes and thousands of pieces of jewellery studded with diamonds and emeralds.…………………….

* 17 kg of gold coins dating back to the East India Company period; 18 coins from Napolean’s era, precious stones wrapped in silk bundles besides over 1,000 kg of gold in form of coins and trinkets and a small elephant made of gold.

* The value of recoveries from vault A alone may exceed over Rs 50,000 cr. With chamber B yet to be opened, speculation is rife the shrine would pip Tirupati Balaji’s assets, which too has been assessed at over Rs 50,000 crore.

Devi Mata saved hundreds lives of Hindus. Suspected Muslim Militants are unsuccessful to blast in Hindu Pilgrimage at Kamakhya.

Posted by hinduexistence on June 18, 2011

Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati, Assam.

Guwahati : Cops defuse powerful bomb on Kanchenjunga Express, avert tragedy at Hindu Pilgrimage.

Somi S Mohanta || Siliguri, 17th June 2011

Defusing the Bomb at Guwahati Railway Station

To frighten the Hindu pilgrimage for abstaining from gathering in the yearly congregation of Ambubachi Festival at ancient Kamakhya Temple near Guwahati in Assam, most probably the Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) had their definite planning to finish hundreds of Hindus this time.  At the same time anti-talk factions of ULFA and NDFB are also under the scanner for such subversive activities who have been continuously defying the Indian sovereignty in the North East India. Kamakhya Temple is considered as a Shakti Peeth of 51 Shakti Peeth in the North East India. Lakhs of hindu devotees come to Kamakhya in the occasion of Ambubachi Mela every year.

Hundreds of passengers of the Sealdah-Guwahati Kanchenjunga Express had a miraculous escape on Friday morning after a powerful IED placed inside one of the reserved compartments was detected and diffused by police well in time at Kamakhya Station near Guwahati. By the blessings of Devi Mata, lives of some 1100 devotees were saved miraculously. The IED device could not effective in time. Most probably the Islamists wanted a Quranic treatment of Kaffirs through a blast and fire-works on Jumma day (Friday) to celebrate the win of maximum numbers of Muslim MLA s in Assam Assembly as sponsored by United Muslim Force of Badaruddin Azmal Attarwala.

A team of Government Railway Police detected a suspicious bag on seat number 22 of coach S5 when the crowded train entered the Guwahati railway station after an overnight journey from Sealdah in West Bengal. The GRP personnel found no owner for the bag and on opening it found a milk can that was tightly wrapped around by small ropes.

According to the police the IED weighed around four kilogram was fitted with a programmable time device. There were also three detonators and splinters inside the bomb. The bomb was disposed off by a bomb disposal squad of special branch of Assam police after few minutes of its recovery in the morning.

Police said the personnel on duty in the train noticed an unattended small, but heavy bag on empty seat no. 22 in S-5 reserved coach at Kamakhya railway station near Guwahati.

“As nobody claimed the bag at Guwahati railway station, where the train arrived at 5.20 am, the GRP personnel suspecting it to be a bomb evacuated about 1,100 passengers on board it and the crowded platform,” they said.  The train was 45 minutes behind schedule.

Assam Police IGP (operations) Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta said, ” We are yet to ascertain as to who could be behind the planting of the IED inside the train. We are also examining the fact the train had come through lower Assam.” The prime suspects are the anti-talk factions of Ulfa and National Democratic Front of Boroland. The lower Assam area through which the train passed has the presence of mostly the NDFB faction. NDFB has now its connectivity with both the Christian militants and the MULTA counterpart as a strategy of power sharing of this region.

Officer –in-charge of the police station of Guwahati railway station, Dhrubajyoti Hazarika said that police have intensified security systems in and around the station. “We received special directives from our senior officers few days before to check every coach with utmost care before the Ambubachi festival. There are inputs that some militants may plant explosives to create panic before the Ambubachi festival in the city.”

A high alert has been sounded across the state following the detection of the powerful bomb which was a programmable time device (PTD) weighing 4 to 5 kgs and it could have caused a major explosion, GRP sources said.

The Assam based insurgency is receiving green colour in texture. A portion of Baruas in Assam have been converted to Islam and helping the Islamic supremacists. Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) has been running more than 200 terrorist camps/hide outs in Assam valley to strength its own set up and to throw out all Hindus from Assam at any cost. They have a major plan to make this land as part of United Islamic Bangladesh.

Jamat Ali, Islamist, MULTA

The Police and Para-Military have recently cracked the conspiracy against the Assam Hindus by MULTA Terrorists as the army entrapped a militant mastermind belonging to Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) during a joint operation at Phutimari village in Kamrup district of Assam on Sunday last. The militant has been identified as Jamat Ali, carrying an one 12 Bore single barrel gun, a china made automatic revolver, a crude bomb weighing two kilogram and some improvised detonators to run further havoc over Hindus. MULTA has the strategy to curve out blasts, shoot out, un-noticed rioting over communal issues on Fridays in Assam in Hindu religious places and especially Hindu populated areas, as apprehended.

Bajrangbali attacked in Bengal.

Posted by hinduexistence on May 28, 2011

Muslim perpetrators find chances to attack Hindu Temples and Saints in the “Change” scenario. Bengal Media indifferent.

Titu Bharti in Durgapur || While the auspicious ceremony of “Paribartan – Change” in Bengal, as claimed by the majority for this in the 2011 election here is being celebrated, in reality, West Bengal is located 2011 km away from democracy and rights for Hindus, as the course of Islamization of this province is in its ultimate state, which has been proved once again in the territory, as before in the Left Front regime of the predecessors.

Again an asthana of Baba Fakirananda and a small Hindu Temple of Bajrangbali (Bagrangbali Ashram) have been smashed by the Muslim hooligans for capturing the temple land in the Durgapur area of Burdwan Districts. Danik Jagaran reported in its Asansole edition on 23rd May, 2011 that a group of 15-20 Musalman Mastan (hooligans) came to attack the Ashram place on 21st Saturday night after an altercation with some locale, may be as a plotting for the night attack. The priest of that Bajrangbali temple, Baba Fakirananda and Sadhvi Anima were assaulted, abused and the pictures of the Hindu deities were torn and the murthies (idols) of Bajragvali and Lord Shiva were desecrated and destroyed by the Muslim attackers with a least resistance of 2-3 inmates of the Devastthan. The Muslim culprits severely injured one Bhola, a resident and sympathizer of the Ashram, who came to protest against the temple attack by the outsiders. This Hanuman Temple and akhara of Baba Fakirananda has become a place of Puja-Path ( Hindu Rituals) by the local Hindus remarkably with due veneration .

As per report, a complaint was lodged by the ashramites in the Kokoben Police Station in the Benachiti area of Durgapur Municipal Corporation. Though demanded a hasty arrest of the perpetrators, no justice could be possible in favor of the aggrieved Hindus and against the Muslim perpetrators as this areas come under the whip of Trinamool leader and MLA MD. Maloy Ghatak, who is adorned as the Law Ministry of West Bengal presently for his Muslim appeasement and support at an umpteen skill. It is heard that Md. Ghatak gave her daughter to a rich Muslim family through an arranged marriage.

The report of this silent attack upon Hindus and Hindu Temple came only in Danik Jagran and the silence of the whole media is bound to raise unanswerable questions. Certainly we found the names of the perpetrators in case of the domestic violence. Fine, but why the perpetrators were not punished even by the mighty pens of media? They can name the man who was beaten up, despite the goons were not “identified” by our highly vigilant media.

The media persons perhaps just think, it’s the handiwork of just some antisocial elements But they never think, why should they tear the picture of Hindu God Bajrangbali , why should they demolish his deity? Why this attack upon Hindu Temple and Ashram? Unless they were preparing to become Ghazi (idol breakers or the killer of a Kaffir), they were not so ruthless and tragic to the disbelievers.

A source so closed to the attackers told us the names of the goons who even took the pain to tour to Durgapur from Asansol, of course to be certified as Ghazi. One of the boys is namely Saifulla Khan, son of a giant antisocial of Asansol under alias of a businessman having a bog shop named “Paramount”. This Saifulla is operating from Asansol to harm hundreds over the Hindus in the locality and even in the remote areas of Burdwan as sources told so far.

Second one comes from the offspring of the owner of “Israil Fashion” that funded Pakistani Intruders with a huge sum of 12 Crore during Kargil War, as a cross border aid from Bangladeshi talibans, creating a debate then. This shop was the third most visited cloth store after B N GHANTY and MOHAN CLOTH STORE in Asansol. In retaliation the Hindus economically boycotted the store or that time and it was almost dragged on footpath. But the Muslim community helped them for their bad times and the masters and managers of Asansol wiped out the matter as no action was taken on them on political coverage. The name of Touhid Hossian is also surfaced for the involvement in this temple attack.

When this is the case of Temple attack in Burdwan and specially in Durgapur, Bengal media should not be blamed for “not to publish the name of the deadly goons from a particular community”. They are all only loyal to the Muslim Minorities. This is branded as “Courageous Journalism” to promote fundamental Islam. Actually, this doesn’t mean anything in their profile.

These types of attack upon Bajrangbali Temple or protest over Bajrangbali Murthi (idol) installation were recorded in Panchala (Howrah), Budge Budge (South 24 Pgs) and some places in West Bengal very unfortunately within last one year.

Hindu Existence observes : * The rate of attack by Hindu common people in rural areas in Bengal are increasing day by day. ** The permission of Hindu local rituals (sravajanin pujas) are not given smoothly by the police and administrations. *** The Hindu girls and women are victimized grossly by the other religions in the covering of Love Jihad. **** Permission and Selling of Raw beefs in Hindu areas and mixed areas are growing to hurt the Hindu sentiments. ***** Capturing or attacking upon Hindu Temple, Hindu lands are gaining political supports. ****** Outsiders and Non Hindu communities are being settled in road sides and Railway stations in the name new habitation or business undermining the Local Hindus. WE ARE WATCHING ALL THESE,  OUR NEW CM IN WEST BENGAL !!!

Age old Durga Mata Temple in Sindh, Pakistan will be destroyed by Muslim granite-miners within one month.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 12, 2011

In search of granite, path to Choryo Durga’s temple blown up with dynamite. Muslim Stone-crushing firm continues Temple ruining activities despite Sindh government’s ban on leases; Hindus protest, pro-muslim officials express ignorance…….

Must See.

A great inspiration for reluctant Indian Hindus. Minority Hindus in Pakistan are giving a great fight to stop temple demolition. Most respectful Salutaion from Hindu Existence.

Durga temple faces destruction in Pakistan

Tahir Ali in Rediff News posted 11th March, 2011 along with news snippets from Zee Tv.

Perhaps this beautiful Durga idol may not be seen in this Temple in near future

The demolition of Hindu temples in Pakistan for the construction of parks, schools etc is a common phenomenon in Pakistan.

In the latest such incident, some contractors have started digging granite stones at the base of a hill, on top of which a historical Temple of Durga Mata is located, in Sindh district. Despite opposition by local Hindus, the digging work is going ahead and the temple may be completely demolished within a month.

The company began excavating a hill near the Durga Mata temple in Choryo village of Tharparkar district with heavy machinery and dynamite about a month ago.

War footing digging in granite rocks threats the natural balance

Local residents said contractor Abdullah Qureshi was given control of the hill on lease by the Sindh government.

Qureshi is “busy blasting through huge chunks of the hill at the bottom of the temple to extract granite while the pilgrims watch on in horror,” the report said.

The excavation was launched as pilgrims from Nepal, India and other countries came to the temple to attend the annual ‘Sardaro mela’ in February, The Express Tribune newspaper reported.

The ‘yatris’ or pilgrims found that the path leading to the temple was destroyed.

“Pieces of rock were scattered all around and heavy machinery loomed ominously and silently nearby,” the report said.

The three-day Shivratri mela that began on February 2 became an occasion for protests by local residents. 

The authority allowed the granite digging company without any provision to protect the age old Sindh Durga Mata Temple

The ancient temple is located on top of a hill in Nagarparkar in Tharparkar district of Sindh. A number of Hindu and Jain temples are located in Nagarparkar and its surrounding areas. Most of them date back to 2,000 to 2,500 years.

Instead of trying to put a stop to the digging activity, the Sindh government has issued a lease to a contractor to carry out the work.

Veerjhi Kohli, caretaker of the temple, told “The way the work of blasting is going on, the temple will be demolished within a month. The hill (on which the temple is located) is going to be dug up from all sides, how will the temple survive? The demolition of the temple shows how helpless Hindus living in Pakistan are.”

Veerjhi added, “Some two lakh pilgrims visited the Durga Mata temple during Shivratri. The pilgrims had protested the destruction and urged the government to stop the work, but to no avail. The work was halted during the festival but now it has resumed again.”

The Pakistani media also doesn’t highlight the destruction of temples, laments Veerjhi, adding that it doesn’t focus on the plight of Hindus in the country.
“Neither any TV channel nor any leading newspaper reported our protests. After such incidents, we Hindus feel alienated in Pakistan,”

Hindu activists have approached local political figures and other concerned authorities but none of them have offered to help. “We were shocked by the district coordination officer’s remark, who said the temple was safe and there was no risk to it from the digging,” Veerjhi said.

Dhakeswari Temple stolen. Persecution upon Hindus and Series of robbery & theft-attack on Hindu Temples engrossed in Islamic Bangladesh.

Posted by hinduexistence on January 11, 2011

Bangladeshi Hindus in shock as worship at temple suspended, property rights disputed, Hindu population declined, persecution goes on……..

Upananda Brahamachari || Hindu Existence Review :  Though a big doldrums already came from the minority Hindus from the measures so far taken by the present so-called pro-minority Bangladesh Awami League  Govt. led by Sheikh Hasina through a shattered election promises to them, accumulated pressure from various sides upon the Hindu minorities now may return them in the fearful days under the BNP-Jamat combination for the last clot.

No retrieval for the safety and security for the persecuted Hindus in Bangaldesh as a landmark so far made by this so called secular Govt of Awami combination, nor the change in a theocratic constitution (Islamic Republic of Bangladesh) for a real Secular Democracy without the “Almighty Allah”, or the proper settlement of property for the evacuated Bangladeshi Hindus including their re-settlements,  the increasing rate of loosing lands by the minorities under the loot by Muslim fundamentalists in every corner of Bangladesh or nothing remarkable can tell us the good days for Bangladeshi Hindus with a dignified social, economical and political status in future.

A CID officer carries out a thorough search at Dhakeshwari National Temple in the capital on Sunday to collect evidence following a daring robbery of about 200 tolas of gold ornaments at the temple

On the other hand, the jaunty Islamists of Bangladesh are now in full swing to invade the Hindu temples including looting stealthily the national temple of Bangladesh like Dhakeswari Temple which has a heritage status.

Reports revel that :

“Hindus in Bangladesh are in shock following the suspension of worship at the capital’s Dhakeshwari National Temple, the most important place of worship for the minority community in the country, after a theft on Sun Jan 09 2011.

Gold (About 200 bhori – 1 Bhori = 0.34 ounce) ornaments, and silver ornaments (five-six bhori) and Taka 4.5 lakh have been stolen from the temple, said Tapan Bhattacharya, the in-charge of the state-owned Dhakeshwari Temple.

Worship at the ancient Dhakeswari National Temple has been suspended for an indefinite period following the theft, the private bdnews24 online reported today.

Known as the ‘National Temple’, Dhakeshwari means “Goddess of Dhaka”.

Babul Devnath, the Secretary of Dhaka Metropolitan Worship Committee, expressed deep concern over the incident as it was the third major temple where theft has taken place in less than a month. The Hindus in the country are in shock.

“A theft took place at Baradeswari Kali Temple on December 12 and another at Jaykali Temple on December 22. We demand proper investigations into all these incidents,” he was quoted as saying in the report.

Bhattacharya said Ratan Chakrawarty and Nitya Gopal Chakrawarty, the priets at Dhakeswari, had locked the temple around 9 p.m. on Saturday.

Around 6 a.m. today they found three of the four locks missing, while the remaining one was broken.

Mohammad Khurshid Alam, the Deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said they had launched a probe into the theft.

Hinduism is the second largest religion in the country, constituting nearly 10 per cent of the population.

There are over 12 lakh Hindus in Bangladesh.”

Though some minority forums like HRCBM (Human Rights Congress for Bangladesh Minorities), BDMW (Bangladesh Minority Watch), BHBCUC (Bangladesh Hindu Bauddha Christian Unity Council-USA) and others are trying hard to address  the constraints before Hindus as an existential threat and put their demands to the respective Govts, in Bangladesh time to time, the general scenario for the trailing Hindus go worse day by day.

A recent report of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) and National Institute of Population Research and Training (NIPRT) reveals that Hindu population has been decreased in Bangladesh region by 24% as it was 31% in 1901 and stands at a meager 9.3% in the latest census of Bangladesh.  The report pointed the salient causes of onslaught of minority Hindus due to post election violence in 2001 in recent caused a mass evacuation of Hindus from their homeland and compelled to leave the country under the tantamount pressure of ransom, infringing religious rights, destruction of their properties, encroaching lands, physical torture, arson, molestation, rape, abduction, even pressurised conversion and so on. In such strangulation the reproduction rates of Hindus in Bangladesh came down and the immigration rates are high.

From another source it is evident that some 100 destruction of temples and over 300 registered cases of abduction-molestation-rape of Hindu women and minor girls earmarked 2010 as hopeless situation also from the new vendors of secularism in Bangladesh.

This kind of shameless burglary in a highest Hindu Temple declared as  “Sree Sree Dhakeswari Jatiyo Mandir” (National Temple) amidst a high security police arrangements created much confusion in all quarters including a bitter repercussion throughout Bangladeshi Hindus and also in neighboring India.

Senior reporter Mr. Basudev Dhar of Danik Statesman, Kolkata reports in its first page from Dhaka that the burglary was so designed only to harass  the minorities in Bangladesh. The Temple authority has already covered the front of deity with a white cloth and suspended the formal puja for an indefinite period as a protest. Meantime the daily puja shall be made through  the rituals before a ‘holy pitcher’. The Hindu minority leaders of Bangladesh including the Co-ordination Committee of Bangladesh Sarbajonin Durgotsav jointly declared a ‘human-chain’ programme on Wednesday on in every where in Bangladesh as a mark of protest. Hindu leaders of Bangladesh have vehemently criticized the inaction of the present Govt. to take proper action to protect the property, prosperity and dignity of Hindu minorities in Bangladesh. They pointed out the every onslaught upon the Hindus in Bangladesh aiming to drive them away by hook or crook.

The Deputy Home Minister of Bangladesh Samsul Haque Tuku (Awami League) visited the Dhakeswari temple today on 10th January, 2010  and assured the prompt arrest of the culprit behind the burglary. The local BNP leader Mirza Fakhrul Islam also visited the temple and expressed his utter dissatisfaction about the present Govt. so that the burglars be-fooled the state police contingencies then on duty at the temple premises.

Minority Hindus in Bangladesh suspect a  nefarious connection between the state police, intelligence and the culprits as they all belong to majority Muslim community. So far the Police and Intelligence in Bangladesh is completely failure to trace out the burglary cases in Bradeswari Kali Temple (Rajar Bag), Jay kali Temple (Wari) and four other old temples in Narayngunj.

Have Islamic demons already captured RSS, BJP, Bajrang and all of them ?

Posted by hinduexistence on December 17, 2010

I bleed…. I bleed !! seeing all these scenes. Islamic demons have captured RSS, BJP, Bajrang, all of them. Better, I expired before seeing all these. Please send many emails and catch them in telephones and mobiles in RSS/BJP/SriRamSene HQs. And ask them how many Mosques and Churches are razed to ground till now. All these are tricks of Christians and Muslims to destroy a huge numbers of temples in India and protect their worship places under minority rights. And all these are happening in Bangalore, India under the regime of a BJP Government.

And it is unbelievable that the big brothers of Hindu brigade in India are doing ultimate harms of Hindus in India. SHAME ON RSS/VHP/Bajrang Dal other Mum Hindu Organizations.

Please stop the bulldozering upon Hindu Temples and react to spoil the anti-Hindu verdict of the Indian Supreme Court accordingly.
Nobody cares for the Supreme Court verdict for hanging of Afzal Guru, Muslim spate on the verdict of Sahabano case and Karnataka BJP Government jumped over the issue of demolition of Hindu Temples. Bravo ! Well done!!
Hello, Manyabar Mohan Bhagawatji, Pravin Togadiaji, Vinay Katiyarji, Acharya Dharmendraji,  Swadvi Rwitamvarji, Uma Bharatiji, Promod Muthalikji, Govindacharyaji, Indresji – all fire-brand Hindutva leaders of present day India- Jai Sree Ram ! Can you please here me through here. Please do not consider it much valuable for your own thinking and organization over the common interest of decaying Hindus. Hindus and their temples, society, dignities, counts all are being finished one by one and you will survive, OK. 

Just one Ananthraman told me today in the morning that Bangalore is a stronghold city of Hindus. Then what is going on in Bangalore and Karnataka under BJP control? Are the Hindus of Bangalore in their winter-sleep ?

BJP Govt. in Karnataka to demolish 5000 temples !

December 15, 2010 || Margashirsha Shukla Navami, KAliyug Varrsha 5112 

Are the pro-Hindu organizations going to say something in protest or going to keep mum as usual ?

Bangalore (Karnataka): Karnataka Government will be demolishing 5000 so-called unauthorized places of worship as a measure to implement the order issued by the Supreme Court. The temples to be demolished are 5000 including 1213 temples, 55 mosques, 17 churches and 4 Gurudwaras from Bangalore District. In South Canara District, there are 640 temples, 151 mosques, 32 churches and 10 Gurudwaras proposed to be demolished whereas in Bangalore city, there are 442 temples, 38 mosques and 95 churches and in Ramnagar District, there are 3 temples proposed to be demolished.

In September 2009, the Supreme Court had issued an order to prepare a list of worship places built at public places which are to be demolished by 31st December 2010. The Government has demolished more than 100 temples till now. (The Supreme Court has so far passed many verdicts in the interest of the nation and people; but none of the verdicts has been so promptly implemented; an example of the same is death sentence given to Mohammad Afzal. Some of the verdicts passed by the Supreme Court like in Shahabano case, was changed so as not to hurt minorities; then why the Government is showing such promptness in demolishing temples? It is only because Hindus are not united that the Government suppresses their sentiments !  – Editor SP)
