ISKCON Cow University for total Protection of Cow progeny and sustainable development.

Posted by hinduexistence on July 16, 2014

ISKCON Cow University (Gau Vishwavidyalaya)  for the research of total Protection of Cow progeny and sustainable development. Cow slaughter is a nefarious conspiracy to lead a socio-cultural and agricultural (Rishi-Krushi sanskriti) doom in Bharat. Hindu Existence Forum extensively supports this spiritual project. 

Now, a cow university for Guntur (Andhra Pradesh). 

PanchgavyaMN Samdani | TNN | Gantur | Jul 12, 2014:: After IIT, IIM and AIIMS, Andhra Pradesh is going to be feathered with a rare project.

A first-of-its-kind university dedicated to conserving cows is coming up in Guntur.

International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) has planned to set up a cow university near Kondaveedu where it is constructing a prestigious Krishna temple. The very idea behind the setting up of a cow university is to protect aging cows while providing employment to illiterate village youth.

“This is for the first time in the world that a university to teach how to earn while conserving disappearing cows is being set up,” Iskcon representative Ravindra Krishna told TOI.

He said that they would be launching a gosala (shelter for cows) costing Rs. 1 crore at Kondaveedu on July 13 and works for setting up the university would begin soon.

“Cow is a wonderful gift given by God to the humankind. It would keep helping us earn till its death,” he explained.

He also said that they would teach how to make medicines and other value addition products even from cowdung and the urine of an aged cow, adding that a youth could make at least Rs 30,000 per month if he could acquire 20 old cows which were being sent to slaughterhouses. 

He said that Guntur district was chosen for the project because farmers here were using high quantities of pesticides causing severe damage to the health of humankind. He said that such pesticides could be replaced with bio-pests made of cow products.

Latent Legacy of Hindutva in BJP.

Posted by hinduexistence on April 20, 2014

Mahant Avaidyanath, Head of Gorakhnath Math ensures Hindutva in Social Life and Politics, urges BJP to give importance to Hindus in Bharat. 

Temple activist wants to keep Hindutva alive

Mahanta  Avaidyanath Ji

Mahant Avaidyanath, strong propagator of Hindutva and head of the Gorakhnath Math is now 98.

Mahant Avaidyanath, head of the Gorakhnath Math, is 98, but age and failing health have not weakened his resolve to “revive Hindutva and protect Hindus.”

The BJP, the party he supports, says development and good governance are its planks in the Lok Sabha election. But the Mahant, who was at the forefront of the Ram temple movement in Ayodhya, asserts that the election is an opportunity to reclaim the “shrinking space for Hindus in India.”

“We are fighting the elections on the agenda of revival of Hindutva and protection of Hindus who are in danger. If Hindus are threatened in India, where in the world will they be safe?” asks the four-time MP from here, who has been leading the revival and propagation of right-wing Hindu nationalism.

“We will support anyone who agrees with, and follows, our Hindutva philosophy, even if they are our enemies,” he told The Hindu in an exclusive conversation at his residence here.

The senior Mahant of the Math was earlier a Hindu Mahasabha leader.

Dismissing allegations that Mr. Modi and the BJP are “divisive” and “communal,” the Mahant says: “Anyone who tries to revive Hindutva, anyone who speaks up for Hindus is perceived as communal by the people who are essentially just enemies of Hindus and Hindutva.”

The Mahant, whose disciple Yogi Adityanath, sitting BJP MP from Gorakhpur, has succeeded him, says the Math’s main concern today is to “keep Hindutva alive.” [The Hindu].

Yogi Adityanath ensures his win through a strong Hindutva Propagation. 

In Gorakhpur, they swear by this Baba

SMRITI KAK RAMACHANDRAN | THE HINDU | GORAKHPUR | APRIL 20, 2014 ::  Hoardings and posters of candidates are conspicuously absent in eastern Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur parliamentary constituency. Barring a couple of billboards of the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi promising “Achche din” (good days), there is little by way of electioneering.

“This city chooses Baba; what is there to discuss? What good are posters when we all swear by him?” asks a shop owner in Golghar.

Yogi Adityanath, aka Baba, is the head priest of the Gorakhnath Mutt and the sitting MP since 1998. He is the presumed winner of the forthcoming polls.

The city is not only ready to re-elect him, but is also geared up to vote for “Modi”, who is “Baba’s choice.” The Yogi-politician has the final word in Gorakhpur and people eulogise him; they blame the lack of development in the city on successive Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party-led governments in the State.

Dalit dissent

While a majority of the city seems to have already chosen its MP, the minority communities — the backward classes and Dalits (Gorakhpur has a sizable Chamar population) — are divided in their opinion. “There are about 20,000-odd Christians in Gorakhpur and they have traditionally been Congress supporters. But this time there is a dilemma, some are supporting the Aam Aadmi Party, though its presence here is almost non-existent; others are thinking of going with the SP. But like the Muslims, the community is not the BJP’s vote bank,” says Rev. Roshan All of St. John’s Church in Bashartpur.

Not all residents endorse the assertion by the Gorakhpur temple that Hindus and Muslims co-exist in peace. “There are fewer clashes; incidents like Muzaffarnagar have not happened in recent times, but that doesn’t mean there is no tension,” says a Muslim resident, requesting not to be named.

Gorakhpur, on the banks of the Rapti, is considered the bedrock of right-wing Hindutva forces. It is also now home to the deadly Encephalitis that claims hundreds of lives every year.

The lack of development, avenues for employment and poor infrastructure are hard to ignore. [The Hindu].

More than 5500 Christians and Muslims returned to Hinduism in Uttar Pradesh.

Posted by hinduexistence on December 27, 2013

Suddhi

Dejected to Semitic Religions. Returned to Hindu Fold. More than 5500 Christians and Muslims returned to ancestral Hindu Home in Uttar Pradesh. 

Om Om OmUpananda Brahmachari | HE Media Bureau | Agra | Dec 26, 2013:: A Great News from the heart land of Uttar Pradesh. Thousands of converted Hindus have been opted again the faith of their forefathers and returned to Hinduism again.

On the eve of Christmas there was a hue and cry that the saffron brigade of RSS (Rashtriya Swamsevak Sangha), VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad), Bahrag Dal, Arya Samaj and Hindu Yuva Vahini would march forward to accept and assimilate their own brothers and sisters who shifted out of faith decades back in a spell of blunder and within an fraudulent ambit of allurement of the evangelical groups or the repressive Islamic elements empowered with inhumane forces.

On the very 25th Dec this year 2013, more than five thousand people returned to Hinduism and said  goodbye  to Christianity in a vast area of  Uttar Pradesh  in the localities of Agra, Aligarh, Kasganj, Bareilly, Badaun, Bijnor, Shahjahanpur, Mainpuri  and Firojabad. 

The highest re-conversion (Suddhi) in Aligarh, where 2000 Christian became Hindus, was held by Dhrama Jagran Samiti, a specific unit of VHP to make special efforts to sensitize the sense of Dharma in the marginal Hindus in any vulnerable condition, likely to be grabbed by the evangelic elements or other vicious elements like Zakir Naik .

Chanting of Vedic mantras,  purification with Ganga Water,  wearing of sacred threads and sacrifice to the fire God were the prime rituals that had helped the aspirants to get an warm entry to Hinduism once gain and for ever. Most of the people who took the refuge of Hinduism in these programmes,  categorically told that they went to another faith by allurements and embraced Christianity . Seven Muslims in Shahjahanpur also adopted Hinduism.

Upon a complain, a details of conversion in Bijnor, the administration is trying to get exact numbers of such ‘returned to home’ (gar wapsi). From a source it is known that  more than five hundred families (1600 people ) except Christianity became Hindu again. These people are mainly hailed from Malkan Rajput and belonging to  Jat Muslim clan.

OmMayor of Agra Town, Sri Indrajit Arya was also present in the program . In the ceremony held at Saraswati Vidya Mandir at Kasganj, 350 families ( about 1,000 people) and Firojabad 66 families (200 people) rejected Christianity and returned to their traditional faith Hinduism once again .

Prominent RSS , Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Hindu Vahini, Arya Samaj and Bajrang Dal leaders  and the saints of  Hindu organizations were present in these religious programmes. In Bareilly, six hundred people embraced Hinduism. Swami Yaswashi Arya of Arya Samaj  sprinkled the holy Ganges water to the aspirants and initiated them with sacred thread (Yajna-Upaveetam).

With chanting of Veda mantra and offering sacrifice in fire the converted Hindus in dilemma, strongly returned back in Hinduism with full dignity and assurance of the Hindus society in every respect. In the programme of Draupadi Devi Inter College campus in Badaun, some 918 people of two hundred and twenty families were accepted Hinduism again by rejecting Christian hegemony and discrimination  in such ‘homecoming’ program.

Various Hindu organisation have declared to extend their utmost support for providing the free education, health and rehabilitation for these brothers ans sisters came to their own fold of faith almost a decade after.

Erlier, some 325 Muslim members of 150 families of Eta, Farukhabad, Pilbhit, Kashganj, Mainpuri, Bareilly and Badaun were assembled in Eta Arsha Gurukul, where they were reconverted into Hindu Dharma again in presence of Jagadguru Swami Rajrajeswaram of Badrinath Dham. The Swami initiated all the aspirants in the Hindu Dhrama without discriminating any caste or creed.

OM OMSaikh Jabbar of Farukhabad and Mohammad Rauf of Pilvit told that they had a very low position in Muslim society as their forefathers went to Muslim community from a poor section of Hindu society.

Sabnam of Kapil (Farukhabad) and parvez Khan of Nagla Amar Singh (Eta) told that they had been feeling an unavoidable attachment with Hindu faith and people and even they protested cow slaughter and conspiracy of attacks on Hindus.  As the Muslim Imams exploited them in various ways and under an utter desatisfactions they finally made their mind to accept their original faith.

In every place there was a wave of satisfaction and peace as all were in a realm of reunion and the love from the core of heart.

Though some Hindi media like Aaj Tak and  Jagran highlighted this news of huge mass re-conversion in Hinduism, the English media (both print and electronic) skipped the same in a very strange manner.

Anyway, there is no known contra-action so far after the programmes of such large scale Paravartan held in Uttar Pradesh in a short time frame and neither there such any allegation of forceful activities from any side so far.

Struggle for Hindu Rashtra is based upon unique uniformity and spiritual solidarity.

Posted by hinduexistence on July 11, 2013

Important requirements for establishment of Hindu Rashtra ! : H. H. Dr. Athavale.

।। .जयतु .जयतु .हिंदुराष्ट्रम् ।।

HJS | Ashadh Shuklapaksha 2, Kaliyug Varsha 5115 | 10 July 2013 ::  The second all-India Hindu Convention was recently held at Ramnathi, Goa. Let us see the necessary points pro-Hindus activists who participated in the Convention are required to imbibe.

‘Samashti (collective)’ destiny of Hindus is responsible for such miserable condition of Hindus and spiritual practice (sadhana) is the only solution to change the same !  

Deeds of previous and present birth decide destiny and fate of every person. Establishment of Hindu Rashtra is not associated with destiny of one person but it is associated with destiny of all Hindus from Hindustan so also Hindus living abroad. The present miserable condition of Hindus is due to ‘Raja’ and ‘Tama’ pre-dominant Hindu rulers, leaders and people and their selfish, narrow-minded and demonic nature which is the root cause of such wretched condition.

Destiny of Hindus is dependent on their deeds. There is only one way for changing such destiny. Hindus need to discard their selfish and narrow-mindedness and instead of thinking only about self and family, they need to think about welfare of all Hindus. For this, rulers, leaders and people need to become ‘sattvik’ which can happen only by Hindus getting ‘Dharma-shikshan’, their abiding by Dharma and undertaking spiritual practice. It will change their destiny and establishment of Hindu Rashtra will be achieved easily. This is the path of action (Karma-marg).

If spiritual practice can entail God realization; it will surely help in achieving establishment of Hindu Rashtra !

In Hindu Dharma, 3 main paths of God Realization have been advocated which are – ‘Karma-Yoga’, ‘Bhakti –Yoga (Path of Devotion)’ and ‘Dnyan Yoga (Path of Knowledge)’. If these paths can be followed for attaining God; these paths can certainly help in establishment of Hindu Rashtra !

A] Karma-Yoga

While doing any deed as per ‘Karma-Yoga’, it should be remembered that ‘Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam (Srimat Bhagavat Geeta- Chapter 2- Verse-50) which means every good deed should be done with skill, in perfect manner as it is ‘Yoga’.

B] Bhakti-Yoga

Bhakti-Yoga means surrendering to Deities. Shiva is the Deity of Bharat. As per the present times, Bhagavan Srikrushna is the Deity to be worshiped for establishment of Dharma / righteousness, protection of virtuous and destruction of evil; therefore, worshipping Bhagavan Shiva and Srikrushna, chanting their names and praying everyday for establishment of Hindu Rashtra is ‘Bhakti-Yoga’. With the grace of Bhagavan Shiva, our Hindu Convention was held at Ramnathi i.e. a Shiva Temple.

C] Dnyan – Yoga

Study Srimat Bhagavat Geeta, Saints’ literature, Sanatan’s Holy books and follow the principles explained in them. With the study of spirituality, your perspective towards life will change, you will be able to clarify doubts of others, guide them and acquire spiritual strength.

Points to be remembered by people who are working for ‘Hinduttva’

Pro-Hindu activists have yearning to establish Hindu Rashtra. They are leaders and representatives of people. Bhagavan Srikrushna has said in Geeta

यद्यदाचरति श्रेष्ठः तत्तदेवेतरो जनः । स यत्प्रमाणं कुरुते लोकस्तदनुवर्तते ॥  -Srimat Bhagavat Geeta, Chapter 3, verse 21

Meaning : Behaviour of leaders, revered persons and Saints is followed by other people; whatever is said by them, is taken by people as the yardstick and people behave accordingly.

Pro-Hindu activists should remember points given below while following the guidance given during all-India Hindu Convention.

1] Study ‘Dharma-grantha’/ Holy Scriptures, Bhagavat Geeta and Sanatan’s Holy books.

2] Chant the names of Bhagavan Srikrushna and Shiva, worship and pray for establishment of Hindu Rashtra.

3] Abide by Dharma. Your behavior should be such that it is kept by people as ideal.

4] Devote at least one hour every day for Rashtra and Dharma and if possible, give all time for this and complete your ‘samashti sadhana’.

5] Bhagawan Sriram and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj are our ideals. Study their life history and adopt those principles. Netaji Subhashchandra Bose used to say that ‘if 40 crores Hindus raise acclamation of ‘Har Har Mahadev’, the British would leave India in a day.’ Hindu Rashtra will be established when we follow this advice.

Brothers and sisters ! Let us all, who took part in all-India Hindu Convention i.e. leaders from various regions, journalists, thinkers, advocates and Saints, unite under the leadership of Bhagavan Srikrushna, let us merge with each other. Let us give up small identities of our organizations, Sects and nurture identity of Hindu Rashtra and Hindu Dharma i.e. nurture patriotism and respect for our Dharma; take oath for sacrificing our body, mind and wealth for establishment of Hindu Rashtra.

If you need any assistance or guidance, rest assured that Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti would always stand firmly behind you. Blessings of Bhagavan Srikrushna are always with us.

Jayatu Jayatu Hindu Rashtram.

Posted by hinduexistence on July 2, 2013

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.

Amarnath 2013Jammu | 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. The batch left from Yatri Niwas in a fleet of 96 vehicles, including 75 buses and 21 LMVs at around 5.45 a.m. amid tight security and in presence of several civil and police officials. 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.

Amarnath Yatra 5 time Costlier than earlier

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 .

Aum is universal medicine for All.

Posted by hinduexistence on June 21, 2013

Aum is medicine, not just mantra.

AumPramila Krishnan | Deccan Chronicle | Chennai::  Abdul Khader chants ‘Aum’ 30 times during his walk at Gill Nagar park every morning and swears it has significantly helped in healing his acute arthritic pain.

“I used to pray seated in a chair because of acute knee pain from arthritis acquired from long hours of doing business standing. Thanks to the yoga asanas, breathing exercises and the chanting of ‘Aum’, I am now able to kneel on the mat for my namaz five times a day,” said the 50-year-old grocer of MMDA colony in the city, talking excitedly about the wholesome healing experienced at the government yoga and naturopathy college hospital near Anna arch.

“When the doctors explained that chanting ‘Aum’ is not religious but provides therapeutic gain, I readily agreed to follow that. I am happy I did it,” Khader told Deccan Chronicle.

Dr Kanimozhi, assistant professor of yoga, says she had prescribed ‘Aum’ chanting for even cancer patients, along with other naturopathy medicines. “The chant controls the secretion of stress hormones and acts as a pain reliever. It is scientific as the chant creates a neuro and psycholinguist effect while a positive aura forms around your body when you do it.”

There are several patients at the hospital — including Muslims and Christians — who have benefited from chanting ‘Aum’, prescribed along with yoga asanas and nature healers, and gained relief from ailments such as pain, insomnia, stress, stuttering and other speech difficulties.

The case of 55-year-old Edwin, a senior army officer tormented by ankylosing spondylitis for over a year, is another example. He has healed from chanting ‘Aum’ and practising asanas and breathing exercises.

“Edwin’s case sheet reveals that after two months of practice, he could flex his joints and his sleep cycle got normal,” said Dr P. Prabhu, expressing happiness that more and more patients are turning to ‘Aum’ and other natural healers.

Hindu Jagran Manch urged mass mourning in Holi as a mark of protest over atrocities upon Hindus in West Bengal and Bangladesh.

Posted by hinduexistence on March 26, 2013

Holi Mourning in Bengal 1Holi Mourning in Bengal 2

How can we celebrate a colourful Holi right now? Observe Mass Mourning.

No Holi- Leaflet

Hindu Existence Bureau, Kolkata | 26 March 2013:: Hindu Jagran Manch, West Bengal  urged Bengali Hindus for observing a day-long mourning in Holi festivity as a mark of protest for increasing atrocities upon Hindus in West Bengal in Naliakhali Viloence and Bangladesh after Shahabag Protest demanding the execution of Bangladesh War Criminal in Bangladesh Liberation in 1971.

While Hindus Naliakhali in Canning Subdivision in West Bengal saw a repetition of Noakhali (1946), where villagers of four villages (Goladahora-Maniktala, Gopalpur, Herobhanga-Satmukhi and Naliakhali) were uprooted for some days and more than 200 Hindu house-holds were arsoned by the outsiders after a killing of a Muslim Cleric by some unknown person on 19 Feb 2013. The severity of torture upon Hindus crossed the limit and it was a harrowing reminiscence of Noakhali Genocide of 1946. God saved the casualties anyway this time. But, Hindus in West Bengal  are regularly being attacked in a same pattern as the Hindus of Deganga (North 24 District) were also attacked and tortured in 2010 by the Muslim hooligans led by a Criminal TMC leader Hazi Nurul Islam, MP of Bashirhat.

The sate ruling parties and the TMC led Govt in West Bengal has not paid any special attention to the Hindu victims and humiliated them by giving them some Rs. 10,000/=, like this while the family of the murdered Imam, Ruhul Kuddus got mor than Rs. 2,00,000/= without any delay. Hindu victims of Naliakhali violence  are still in grief and hazards. Many of them are still homeless and helpless. There is no meaning Colour of Holi in Naliakhali at all.

Deep Mourning on Holi

The plight of minority Hindus inn Bangladesh has no limit for ever. After the Shahabag movement, the International Tribunal for War Criminal pronounced the execution of Delwar Hossai Sayedee. After that the Islamic fundamentals of Jamaat-e-Islami in Bangladesh has plundered the Hindu areas of Bangladesh only to drive away them from Bangladesh out of a dangerous plan to make Bangladesh as Kaffir Free and Hindu-less.

A reputed Bengali newspaper in Bangladesh, ‘Prothom Alo‘ has published the horrible account of  the torture upon the minority Hindus in the pot Shahbag period. The accounts include the attack upon 319 Hindu temples, Hindu house-holds and shops in last 24 days. Hindus are affected in 32 districts in Bangladesh.

But, this  reflection of the plight of BD Hindus in newspaper is more than true  though partial. Actually,  thousand small, medium and big temples, house-holds, shops, properties, valuables of Hindus in Bangladesh have been desecrated, torched, looted and vandalized including the pleasurable and pious Islamic game of  destroying  Hindu Gods and Goddesses in temples and Hindu homes.

The Hindus in Bangladesh have also no meaning of Holi Celebration as an obvious point of their frightened and persecuted atmosphere.

On the other hand the repression upon the Hindu Organizational members and Hindu leaders by TMC (Total Muslim Congress)  Supremo, Mamtaz Banu Arjee in these days are all time high.

All these odd happenings in Bengal and Bangladesh include blood-shed of Hindu brothers, rape of Hindu Women and unchecked tears of Hindu Mothers. The apathy or the anti-pathy in this  situation is very shocking. These victims of Jihad have no colour of Holy in their grief stricken phase of life.

Flavour of Shahbag in KolkataIn this context, the Hindu Jagaran Manch and Hindu Existence Forum jointly gave a call to observe mourning and reject all colours of Holi in protest to Islamic Violence in Noliakhali, Canning, West Bengal; Post Shahabag attack on minority Hindus in 32 districts in Bangladesh and unlawful detention of Hindu activists in West Bengal Jails by autocrat-&-pro-Islamic maroon Mamataz Banu Arjee.

Let the children play Holi, they know nothing. But what should we do?

YES,  WE CAN NOT CELEBRATE HOLI THIS TIME, IGNORING THE BLOODSHED OF OUR BROTHERS, MODESTY OF OUR SISTERS AND TEARS OF OUR MOTHERS. WE MAY CAN OBSERVE ARANDHAN (NO COOKING),  HUNGER STRIKE, PROTEST RALLY, STREET CORNERS, LEAFLETING, POSTERING ETC., TO EXPRESS OUR SOLIDARITY WITH THE GLOBAL HINDU BENGALIS EVERYWHERE ALONG WITH STRUGGLING PEOPLE AT SHAHBAG.

Hindu Jagran Manch has made a huge postering and leafleting to refrain Bengali Hindus from celebrating Holi for a chief enjoyments. 

 The facebook community ‘Shahbager pase aamrao‘ and Some social media groups are unitedly conducting the signature campaign in support of Shahbag movement with protesting the gross violence upon minorities in Bangladesh in post Shahbag period.

Swami Vivekananda 150th birth anniversary celebration at Chicago.

By J.V. Lakshmana Rao | Chicago India Tribune :: Outside India, Chicago occupies an important place in the life and work of Swami Vivekananda, the great Hindu monk.

Swami Vivekananda and the making of modern India.

By Amiya Prosad Sen | Jan 12, 2013 | TOI :: In several ways, the life and work of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) mark the historical process of India rediscovering herself in modern times. These are also emblematic of the ways in which a tradition modernizes or creates alternative forms of modernity. Today, as the nation celebrates the 150th birth anniversary of the Swami, it is only apt that we critically reflect on his life and legacy.

Generally speaking, his contribution to India and to the larger world may be summed up in four ways. First, in modern India, it was Vivekananda who first emphasized that our everyday lives would become more meaningful only when spiritualized. It was in this spirituality that he re-discovered, as it were, India’s message to herself and to the world. For Vivekananda, this spiritual self-realization led to people more fully realizing their own potentialities. Especially in the context of a colonized society like that of 19th century India, this was tantamount to men and women locating greater self-belief in themselves.

The human soul being free, suggested Vivekananda, more than compensated for the loss of political freedom.

Second, even though the Swami rejected political praxis and West inspired social and religious reforms, his essential message was the empowerment of the people: through education, collective thought and action but above all, realizing he underlying unity of all human existence. In the Hindu tradition, ascetic detachment from the world had been criticized even before Vivekananda but it was he who first actively joined the idea of individual renunciation to committed social service. >>Read details here.

‘Kumbh Mela’ the Greatest Show on Earth and The World’s Most Massive Act of Oldest Faith…

Posted by hinduexistence on December 19, 2012

'Kumbh Mela' the Greatest Show on Earth and The World's Most Massive Act of Oldest Faith...

‘Kumbh Mela’ the greatest show on Earth, says a study

According to the study done by a team of professors across the UK and India, the Kumbh Mela attracts worldwide attention as a remarkable spectacle: millions of pilgrims bathing in the Ganges, parades of gurus on thrones, flanked by naked Naga Sadhus smeared in ash…..
………….

Kumbha Hindu ExistenceLondon | Tue, 18 Dec 2012 | By PTI :: The Kumbh Mela, one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, to be held at Sangam in Allahabad early next year has been described as the “greatest show on Earth” in a four-year study by British and Indian researchers.

Up to 100 million people will gather on the shores of the Ganges to celebrate the Hindu festival commencing on January 14, 2013. For four years the team of British and Indian researchers have been studying the event, seeking to understand how people treat each other, how they experience the crowd and what impact the crowd has on their everyday lives.

They will present their findings at a special event at Allahabad University on January 24, 2013. The study described the Kumbh Mela as an incredible event and the “greatest show on Earth”.

The Kumbh Mela attracts worldwide attention as a remarkable spectacle: millions of pilgrims bathing in the Ganges, parades of gurus on thrones, flanked by naked Naga Sadhus smeared in ash.

This research, led by Nick Hopkins at the University of Dundee, Prof Stephen Reicher at the University of St Andrews, and Prof Narayanan Srinivasan at the University of Allahabad shows it to be remarkable in other ways as well.

How is it that a vast city of strangers emerges from nothing every year, and yet it functions harmoniously? How is it that people thrive in an environment that is densely crowded, intensely noisy and often insanitary?

The event in Allahabad will provide the answers to these and other questions about the Mela. It will also provide insights that are relevant, not only to the Mela, but go to the heart of processes that make human social life possible, which create (or undermine) social cohesion and which shape our sense of well being. ‘Sometimes we look at the Mela as an exotic event and focus on how different the pilgrims are from us. Our work shows how the pilgrim experience has lessons for all of us about how to create a good community and to ensure that people thrive in the community,’ Hopkins said. ‘By all the tenets of conventional wisdom, the Mela shouldn’t work. It is crowded, noisy and unsanitary.

One might expect people to be stressed, quarrelsome and conflictual. Yet the event is harmonious and people are serene. Studying the Mela has forced us to reconsider many basic beliefs about how people function in society,’ Reicher said. Narayanan said, ‘This has been the largest ever social science collaboration between the UK and India and possibly the most successful. The event in Allahabad will be very exciting. It will reveal findings that are sure to surprise people. It will change their understanding of crowds and communities.’

Hindu Existence  Post Script:

The Kumbh Mela

Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu pilgrimage in which Hindus gather at the Ganges, river Godavari and river Shipra, where bathing for purification from sin is considered especially efficacious.

Mainly, the Ardh (half) Kumbh Mela is celebrated every six years at Haridwar and Allahabad, the Purna (complete) Kumbh takes place every twelve years, at four places Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nashik. The Maha(great) Kumbh Mela which comes after 12 ‘Purna Kumbh Melas’, or 144 years, is held at Allahabad.

Five Types of Kumbh Melas • Maha Kumbh Mela – occurring every 144 years – only in Allahabad. • Purna Kumbh Mela – after every 12 years – last one took place in January 2001 in Allahabad. • Ardh Kumbh – 6th year after Kumbh Mela. • Kumbh Mela – every 3rd years, rotating through Prayag, Nasik, Haridwar and Ujjain. • Magh Mela – Annual, held every year except years of Kumbh Mela and Ardh Kumbh Mela Held in Magh (Jan-Feb); hence the name. Only in Allahabad.

According to the Mela Administration’s estimates, around 70 million people participated in the 45-day Ardh Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, in 2007.

The previous Kumbh Mela, held in 2010 in Haridwar, was, before it occurred, estimated by the authorities to attract between 30 and 70 million people. Coming Ardha Kumbh Mela will start on 14-January-2013 at Allahabad.

Most Significant Days During The Kumbh Mela

Makar Sankranti  (14th January 2013 Sunday) – Shahi Snan

Kumbh-the greatest show on earthA Holy bath during this period carries special significance. Those who take a holy bath in the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Krishna and Kaveri acquire pious credits . Ganga is considered as the river of heaven. This river came to earth by the religious austerity of Bhagirath and river had conjunction with ocean for the reclamation of ocean. The day Ganga dissolved in ocean was the day of Makar Sankranti. Hence, the virtue of bathing in Ganga today is much more than any other day. In Kolkata, lakhs of devotees come to take bath in Ganga sagar. In Allahabad as well, great masses come for bathing and doing charity on the banks of Sangam. One month of Kalpvas(kumbh mela) is also started in Allahabad from the day of Makar Sankranti, which is been followed since the era of Ramayana.

Paush Purnima (27 January 2013 Sunday)

The day occurs when the moon is full in the Hindu month of Paush. This is the last full moon of winter. By this time, the sadhu and hundreds of thousands of pilgrims arrive at the Kumbh Mela. On the day of Paush Purnima, devotees take baths in various sacred rivers like Ganga and Yamuna. People take baths at various places including Haridwar and relieve themselves of all their sins and problems. Taking baths, donations, charities etc are considered very sacred on this day. The baths of Magh month start with Paush Purnima and hence, this day is considered very important. It is believed that all wishes come true on this day.

Ekadashi Snan (6 February 2013)

Ekadashi, Krishna Paksha in the Hindu month  Magha, 2069 Vikram Samvat. At times Ekadashi fasting is suggested on two consecutive days. It is advised that Smartha with family should observe fasting on first day only. The alternate Ekadashi fasting, which is the second one, is suggested for Sanyasis, widows and for those who want Moksha. When alternate Ekadashi fasting is suggested for Smartha it coincides with Vaishnava Ekadashi fasting day. Ekadashi fasting on both days is suggested for staunch devotees who seek for love and affection of Lord Vishnu.

Mauni Amavasya Snan (10 February 2013 Sunday) – Shahi Snan

For the holy men and women, this is the main bathing day. New members to various holy monastic orders receive their first initiation on this day. The Amavasya of Magh Masa is called the Mauni Amavasya. Sun and Moon enter and the Capricorn sign, because of the transit, on this day. This day is celebrated as the birthday of Manu Rishi. It is believed, Lord Brahma gave origination to Maharaja Manu and queen Shatrupa. Hence, this day is considered as the beginning of the universe creation. Capricorn sign has the Yoga of Sun and Moon which increases the significance of this Amavasya. Bathing in Sangam of Allahabad, gives virtues to an individual, on this day. According to some scholar, Maun Vrat should be observed. Maun (silent) Vrat means to control all our senses. It depends on a person for how long he wants to observe silence. People take the resolution of Maun Vrat for a day, or a month, or for one year.

Basant Panchami Snan (14 February 2013 Thursday) – Shahi Snan

Muslims are not in need of a reason for rioting against non-believers at any time.

Posted by hinduexistence on September 30, 2012

Muslims are not in Need of a reason for rioting 

Dr. Babu Suseelan

Muslims are not in need of any reason for rioting, beheading, killing and burning alive of Infidels. It is in Islam’s history and by nature, all Islamists are brutal, and aggressive.  Through out the 1400 years of Islamic history, everything Muslims  have touched have been marred with Al-Taqyiea (lying) wars, plunder, looting, destroying culture, invasion, tyranny, massacre and Jihad terror. Islam has destroyed all traditional faiths, peaceful religious practices, harmony, peace, coexistence, and higher transcendental learning. Omar the cruel disciple of Mohammad has said, “burn all libraries in the world, everything is in the Koran”. The murderous converted Muslims have burned all libraries in Alexandria, Egypt, Persia, Syria including the world’s largest University and libraries in Nalanda and Takshasila. Original; ethical concepts, peaceful living, harmony, religious tolerance have been destroyed by force, Empathy, love, morality and harmony among people and Islamic Mullahs  have been twisted morality and peaceful living into Jihad and hatred.

India, the peaceful country has no history of attacking other nations or destroying any cultures. But Islamic invaders and Jihad warriors have brutally killed more than 80 million innocent Hindus. Islam was successful in forcefully converting millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Janis, Jews and Christians. And Islamic rulers in any  country were involved in assassination, mass murder, and stoning alive all Infidels. The Islamic rule in India was the most darkest and the most ridiculous page in the history of India. Understanding the true nature Of  Islam and taking appropriate actions against Jihadi mass murder,  will save millions of innocent people and establish peace, harmony, religious tolerance, and coexistence in the world. Muslims consider Islam as a complete and completed religion. The real fact is that Islam is an Arab Imperialist dogma, which is dangerous, rigid and instigate Muslims all over the world for establishing Dar-Ul-Islam through Jihad terrorism and rioting,. The current roots against Americans and innocent Infidels is not because Hollywood made a real picture of Mohammad or misinterpreting cruel Islamic doctrine. But creating disturbances and killing infidels is what is required for all Muslims.

To prevent such Islamic butchering, tragedies and tyranny recurring again, each one of us would reflect on our innermost thoughts and critically examine our concepts of tolerance, compromise and appeasement of Jihadis.

The Jihadi warriors practice Al-Taquiea for promoting violent Islam. Those who are deceived (phony liberals, Peace activists, paid agents of the Media) must see the real nature of Islam, clearly, purge from Islamic spirits, extricate their minds from and free Jihadis from the shackles of Islamic terror. We peace loving , liberty appreciating, free democratic people must abandon our illusions about Islam. We need a new era, a new future. Our Children and grand children must live in peace, harmony in a democratic country. We have to oppose by all means the savage Islamists.

Muslims must  resort to democratic means and employ humanitarian intervventin against any grievances they may have on infidels. Even the long history of negect and exploitation of Islamic rulers may have forced Muslims to use more drastic terroristsic means against infidels.Even a long history of neglect on the part of Islamic tyrants and savage leaders does not permit Jihadis to resort to unconventional terrosim against infidels.

Another argument of Islamists is that we are misinterpreting Islamic verses. No, we are interpreting Koran as it is. Muslim’s irrational claim has no merit. There is no justification and merit in Islamic riots and mass killing if innocent diplomats and innocent infidels. There is no excuse , and we have to expose the hypocrasyof Islamists and the statements issued by Mullahs. These Islamistswho riots without any reason are criminal thinkers who act without reason, guilt, remorse or empathy for the innocent infidel victims.  Islamists are free to do dangerous mass murder because infidel countries have failed to intervene effectively to spread of Islamic shackles.

It is true, however, that we often lack the courage to corner, contain these savage Islamic terrorists . Where is our moral posture . We would do better, if we apply a force continum to save humanity from Islamic mass murderers.

Hindus and Buddhists counted together represent two percent of the overall population, the same share as Jews.

Ninety percent of Hindu Americans believe there is more than one way to interpret the tenets of their faith, and the majority celebrate both Hindu holidays like Diwali as well as Christmas, noted the report, titled: “Asian Americans: A Mosaic of Faiths.” The report lacked much novel information, and re-stated largely-held beliefs about Indian Americans and their religious practices.

Most Asian American Buddhists and Hindus maintain traditional religious beliefs and practices. Two-thirds of Buddhists surveyed believe in ancestral spirits, while three-quarters of Hindus keep a shrine in their home, concluded the report, adding however that 30 percent of the Hindus surveyed and 20 percent of Buddhists report having attended religious services of another faith, outside of special occasions such as weddings or funerals.

U.S. Buddhists and Hindus tend to be inclusive in their understanding of faith. Most Buddhists and Hindus, for instance, reject the notion that their religion is the one true faith and say instead that many religions can lead to eternal life, or in the case of Buddhists, to enlightenment, noted the survey.

The 182-page report focused on the four major religious groups of Asian Americans: Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and the religiously unaffiliated. Muslims compromise an additional four percent of Asian Americans, but their numbers in the survey were too small to include in the analysis, said an introduction to the report.

Some Current Hindu News from USA.

A pie chart of Indian American faiths included with the report showed that 51 percent of Indian Americans identify as Hindus, 10 percent are Muslim, five percent are Sikhs and two percent are Jain.

Eighteen percent of Indian Americans identify as Christian, though only about three percent of India’s total population is estimated to be Christian. The higher percentages of Indian American Christians may reflect immigration patterns or switching of religions.

Ten percent of Indian Americans are unaffiliated with any religion, according to the pie chart, which did not include a slice for other affiliations, such as Parsis or Jews, whose combined numbers represent less than one percent of the Indian American population.

About one-third of Hindu Americans say that religion is important in their lives, in sharp contrast to the overall U.S. population where religion plays a large role in the lives of 58 percent of those surveyed.

The report also notes that Asian Americans tend to pray less than the overall population, but adds that Asians regard prayer differently than other groups.

“The ritual recitation of mantras in both Buddhism and Hinduism is not the same as prayer to a personal God in the Christian tradition, and this difference may help explain why a smaller number of Asian American Buddhists and Hindus than Asian American Christians report that they pray daily. And although attendance at religious services is higher among U.S. Asian Christians than among U.S. Asian Buddhists and Hindus, many of the Buddhists and Hindus – about 78 percent – report that they maintain religious shrines in their homes.

Nearly three-quarters of Hindu Americans see yoga not just as exercise but also as a spiritual practice. More than half of U.S. Hindus said they believe in reincarnation and moksha, defined in the survey as “the ultimate state transcending pain and desire in which individual consciousness ends.”

Also, about half also believe in astrology defined in the survey as the belief “that the position of the stars and planets can affect people’s lives,” but fewer believe in spiritual energy in physical things or in ancestral spirits.

Interestingly, 24 percent of Hindus say they meditate daily, while only 17 percent of Buddhists – with whom the practice is more commonly affiliated – say they regularly meditate.

“As their numbers rise, Asian Americans are contributing to the diversity of the U.S. religious landscape. From less than one percent of the total U.S. population — including children — in 1965, Asian Americans have increased to 5.8 percent or 18.2 million children and adults in 2011, according to the U.S. Census,” said the Pew researchers in an overview of the report.

“In the process, they have been largely responsible for the growth of non-Abrahamic faiths in the United States, particularly Buddhism and Hinduism,” noted the report, which can be viewed in its entirety at pewforum.org.
