"I am proud to belong to Vedic Dharm which has tought the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. Although we believe in universal toleration, we cannot accept those religions to be true that legitimate murder, plunder and rape on the excuse of not subscribing to their faiths. I am proud to belong to a nation,which has sheltered the persecuted and the refugees of all religions and all nations of earth"
I agree with Daniel Webster who said, "There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence. ... I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants... they may be made the dupes of designing men and become the instruments of their own undoing." Secularism is a tool of the democracy to eradicate human race.
Non-violence is imposed upon Aryans alone through [Article 29(1) of the Indian Constitution] and Sections 196 and 197 of the Criminal Procedure Code. Like Nazis rolling into Poland following the "peace process" in 1930's Europe, the perpetrators of Islamic terror and Christianity's Mission are inflamed by violent and racist doctrines. The doctrines are ' Fight them until persecution is no more and the Religion of Allah reigns supreme.' (Koran 8:39) and "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them bring them here and kill them in front of me." Bible, Luke, Chapter 19 Verse 27. Both have agenda, and we are ignorant of it. If we do not retaliate, humanity would finish.--

Apology for the lengthy article as it completes this particular subject. The author has listed very important guidelines to promote our national integration and solving the problems we are facing. Please take some time to read every word of it..(my comment)
Creating a Spiritual Revolution in India
For Protecting the Vedic Heritage
Book distribution is essential for the education of people in the culture and spiritual traditions. Of course, not everyone in the towns and villages will know how to read, but this is changing as each new generation is more educated. To distribute books such as Bhagavad-gitas that are in the local languages is very important. Other simple-to-understand books can also work well. For those who cannot read, having weekly classes to read from and discuss the book in order to increase the people's understanding of it and the philosophy can work well. This is especially good to do at the temple in groups. This setting, with everyone sitting together, provides a deeper sense of community and friendship, and commitment to each other and the culture. This can easily be done on a weekly basis along with the gatherings for bhajans and arati to the deity. A time should be scheduled for this every week, such as each Saturday or Sunday, or even each day when people can attend, such as the early morning or later in the evening for those who can make it. When everyone gathers at the temple, it is a perfect setting for such additional activities. Then each person can become stronger in their faith, as well as their understanding of the culture and philosophy.
People coming together in groups to hear, study, and discuss the deeper spiritual aspects of the Bhagavad-gita or other texts can also help chip away at any caste differences, or social classifications that seem to perpetuate unnecessary disparity between members. This is a major deterrent in India's and Hinduism's unity and cooperation, and ruins any hope for collective progress. So, this kind of group study and gathering can help bring about the process of changing the way everyone views each other.
RETRAINING FOR TEMPLE PRIESTS IN THE VILLAGES
Another way of reaching the villages has been started by the TTD management at Tirupati. After reaching out to Dalit colonies with 'Dalita Govindam,' the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) management has now taken up 'Matsya Govindam' which is aimed at fishermen hamlets dotting the long, coastal belt of the State, starting from Tada in Nellore to Itchapuram in Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh. For the first time in the country, a target group hitherto considered alien is being trained in temple rituals.
The fishermen will be taught the basic tenets of Vedic religion, development of the temple system, the "do's and don'ts" of deity worship, features of the Agamas, rituals, conduct of festivals and so on, besides increasing rapport with devotees. The idea apparently sprang from the concern over the collapse of the temple system and Hindu form of worship in the coastal belt, mostly inhabited by members of the fishermen community. The coastline that is spread over nine districts has been found to have 213 temples in 187 villages. While 20 were dedicated to the Shakti or Veerabrahmam cult, the rest are "Ramalayams," temples of Lord Rama, mostly in a dilapidated condition. The move gained pace with the fishermen community itself complaining of 'poaching' by other faiths in the coastal belt. The president of Kakinada-based 'Matsyakara Sankshema Samithi,' Koduru Jayaram, had presented this idea to the TTD to save the Vedic temple system by training the members of the community in priesthood.
The idea is that whoever is trained to be the temple priest, however simple his duties and knowledge may be at first, will engage in a week-long training session. Therein, the priests-to-be will have to wake up before dawn, perform sankirtan, yoga, meditation, recite slokas, and attend classes. A practical follow-up session is likely to be included in the module later. Then, after becoming fixed up in the temple program and with rekindled interest in their Vedic heritage, they become the full time priests of the temple and help the whole village in this manner.
The Swadhyaya group, who base much of their philosophy on Lord Krishna's teaching in the Bhagavad-gita, also does this in the villages around Mumbai, and afterwards also help the village men who are interested to find alternative careers to fishing. So this is a system that has much potential.
PROVIDING ASSISTANCE FOR MEDICAL CONCERNS
There are many additional ways to provide assistance to the villagers or people in general, who often get through life with only the barest of necessities. Something that has been beneficial in many areas is to organize a fund raising drive amongst people you know in your temple, or find sponsors to bring the villagers together to distribute blankets, clothes, and similar items that they need. Some temples do this on a regular or annual basis, with much appreciation by the villagers.
A friend of mine has also sponsored a medical van that drives around to the different villages. He bought the van, prepared it for patients, stocked it with medical supplies, and employed the personnel. It is a mobile clinic which houses the most essential medical facilities for doing regular diagnosis up to small operations. It works with a driver, a nurse, and a doctor. They pull into a village, usually on a particular scheduled day, and the villagers line up to attend to their needs. The doctor and nurse perform treatments right there, or give medicine as needed. More serious cases can be taken to a hospital. But many villagers are far away from cities and cannot get regular medical treatment in other ways. So this mobile clinic is extremely effective, and does not cost all that much to operate.
Often times, villagers cannot afford the simplest of things that they need to survive. And these simple methods outlined here can supply the means to take care of them without the need of foreign interests or those of other religions to get involved. This releases them from the threat of conversion tactics being applied, which is often the case when people of outside religions get involved, and then provide medical facilities or basic needs with the intention to convert the villagers to their religion.
PROVIDING FREE FOOD DISTRIBUTION FOR CHILDREN
A major concern is malnutrition amongst India's children. Adults also are affected by this. Thus, free food distribution programs can be started by individuals and organizations to help in this regard.
I have visited numerous schools, such as the Vivekananda Kendra schools, Iskcon schools, and others that provide meals for the children. Having eaten with the children, I know the food is quite nutritious.
RALLIES TO PROTEST GOVERNMENT'S BIASED ACTIONS
This is in regard to the peaceful protest rally that was organized in Tirupati on January 25th, 2008, wherein up to 10,000 people marched through the streets, and then gathered at a venue with other Dharmic leaders, Swamis, Acharyas, and guests speakers. The purpose was to protest the government's taking over management of some 32,000 Vedic temples in Andhra Pradesh, and what it was doing with temple-owned land and other assets that belonged to the temples. This is a way each individual can stand up and take a position for changing the future of India and protecting its culture.
It is especially powerful when the people see that Swamis and Acharyas care enough about them that such saintly men will personally pay a visit to their village, either on the Padayatra or otherwise, and participate in such rallies. It invokes much enthusiasm in the people who then are more than willing to participate in worship, programs, or rallies with similarly enthused people. It can and has created a powerful force for the cause of Dharma. As it happened, through this kind of rally and protest, and affiliated negotiations, the government of Andhra Pradesh gave 30,000 of the temples back to the Hindu majority, but kept 2000 of the most profitable temples for themselves, which is still being contested by the people. Furthermore, what the government has done, or allowed to be done with the temple's assets and properties needs additional investigation. But at least now the government knows they cannot do whatever they like without being watched and questioned.
FOLLOW-UP ACTIONS AND ORGANIZING VILLAGES
Once the above rallies and gathering of the people have been established, additional points to consider include the formation of political action committees or organizations to:
(A) Make sure politicians are aware of your issues,
(B) Make sure that they are representing you properly, and
(C) Unite voters to bring in a better political representative for the indigenous culture, and vote out of office those who are ineffective or worse.
Here is an example of this kind of follow up with the government and with the townspeople who participated in the Padayatra. First, from a press release from Dr. Subramanian Swamy, from the 16th of February, 2008, he states:
"The Union Government must enter into an urgent consultation with the apex Hindu body of sadhus, namely the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha (HDAS) convened by Swami Dayananda Sarasvati, to substantially amend the Hindu Religious Endowments and Charitable Trust Act (1951) to bring it in conformity with Article 25 and 26 of the Constitution. At present the Act provides for total and suffocating control of Hindu temples in the country by the Government at the Centre and States, while exempting Mosques and Churches completely even from Government oversight supervision. This is highly discriminatory against the Hindus who are 83% of India's population, and thus violates Articles 14, 25 and 26 of the Constitution."
In this way, the huge rally and march of 10,000 bhaktas of all ranks through Tirupati, which received coverage in every local newspaper, along with radio and television, would surely get the attention of all politicians. Then, follow-up meetings with the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Mr. Rajashekhar Reddy, were scheduled in which the concerns were presented for restoring the temples to proper management, as well as the legal and constitutional grounds for why this should be done. Bringing 10,000 people to the march showed the support that such an issue has with the people. Therefore, Mr. Reddy's concern and cooperation would be important, otherwise the next step would be to take it to the courts, which someone like Dr. Subramanian Swamy would have no hesitation to do. Bringing it to the courts would then publicize all the more the affair and the unequal views that Mr. Reddy has had toward Hindus and their temples, compared with the churches that he seems to favor. But having and establishing the means to give the management of the temples back to an honest and purposeful committee is essential, and not to a government-formed group that would only continue the plunder of temples and their assets unabated.
The next example in the important steps to follow up with villagers and townspeople has been nicely summarized by another friend of mine, Mr. Badri:
"During the first Maha Padayatra, Sri Kamal Swamiji covered 3200 kilometers by foot, visiting close to 2500 village Mandirs in half the districts of Andhra Pradesh. The Second Maha Padayatra is scheduled to begin in August, 2008 and this will take him to the rest of the Districts and villages, this time covering 5000 kilometers.
"At each village, we have been able to identify the group of people who supported the cause and have exhibited great enthusiasm and Bhakti, forming reception committees at grass root levels. These have been connected to the respective District level of the Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samiti. No wonder, we had 8000 simple Bhaktas visiting Tirupati on January 24 for the Bhakti Sangamam meeting. Voluntarily.
"Sri Kamal Swamiji will now visit all these villages, which he visited during his Padayatra, by car. He will meet the people, and thank them for their support to the cause. Reinforce their devotion. Give them the required confidence and direction. And at each village form the Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samiti officially, getting the committee members in place and in working order. The structure starts from the bottom, with a strong foundation and grows upwards into a super-structure. The Organization Chart will be in place, drawn meticulously to become functional. These committees will be represented by Bhaktas from all caste configurations of each village, giving representation to ALL Hindu Bhaktas.
"During the next Padayatra, he will form similar committees in each village he visits. Thus we will have the Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samiti committees spread into close to 5000 plus village Mandirs in Andhra Pradesh.
"These committees will be affiliated to their respective District Units which will in turn be affiliated to the State Unit of the Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samiti.
"Our aim is to currently demand the government to drop the idea of the formation of its Dharma Parishad [government formed committee]. We want the government to hand over these Mandirs and its administration to the Hindu Devalaya Parirakshana Samiti. With the presence of our Samiti at the village and district level, we will be in a better position to initiate the resuscitation of Nithya Pujas in these Mandirs. The Samaj will come forward to bring the Mandirs back to their pristine glory. It is a test to the truth of the Bhakti of each Hindu, as we achieve our goal within a time frame of three years from now.
"Believe me, each of the Mandirs will be on its way to its original glory. These will unite the Hindus. We will all come together, learn to manage our own Mandirs and, thus, our own religious and political affairs in the long run.
"The builders of these Mandirs placed their trust in us, the future generations of Hindus. It is time to start living up to their trust."
Now, can you begin to imagine how strong the Vedic culture would become if such actions would be initiated and taken in many parts of India? This is what we need to consider and begin to take the necessary actions that are most appropriate in every part of India..
* * *
These are ideas that can be expanded by those already engaged in such activities of protecting the culture of India and spreading it for everyone's benefit.. But they could also be used by those who have remained in the complacent classes of India, who have not done that much, yet have grumbled that someone should do something about the situation and give the villagers a reason to remain in the Dharmic community.
For example, college students who want to become active in protecting and sharing their own culture can also take time to assist in educating villagers with stories of the Puranas, Ramayana, etc., or in helping build temples, raise funds, buy books, medical supplies, etc. You can show your enthusiasm by your example. Indian students who are becoming lawyers can also help engage in efforts to stop the Indian government from taking over the management of temples, or assist in other related and legal issues. Professionals, such as doctors, dentists, and others in the medical field from the Indian community, both in the United States as well as in India, could also help and donate their time or vacations to medical clinics in India, or act in other various ways. Others, such as architects, engineers, etc., can assist in the building of temples, medical clinics, or simple houses for people where needed. There are those who are already acting in this way, such as donating funds for the Ekal Vidyalaya, the one-teacher schools in tribal or remote villages, or the Global Hindu Heritage Foundation, who contributed much for the campaign to preserve the temples in Andhra Pradesh. So the structures and plans have already been put together for some of these areas of need, but there is more to be done.
Even though I am in America, I have still gone to India to do lecture tours to speak to crowds, and appear in newspapers and on television to try and do my part, and show that even we Westerners are most appreciative of what India and the Vedic culture has offered to the world. I show that I have taken up the practice of the Vedic traditions, and also have written numerous books and articles like this one about India and its ancient knowledge and customs. In this way, I show myself as a role model and inspire Indians, no matter where they may be, big cities or small villages, Tamil Nadu or Nagaland, so that they will hold great respect for their own culture and realize how special and unique it is. Often I am quite surprised at how much appreciation they show for what I am doing. And India is where I have learned about and participated in the activities that I have herein described. That is why I am now writing about them with the hope that this book can inspire others who reside in India, or elsewhere, to do something more.
Other Westerners who have taken to the Vedic culture, and who are educated in various aspects of it, can also go to speak. Or, for those who are trained in Bharata Natyam dance, perform at festivals or other venues, and show themselves to Indian Hindus as positive role models who have taken up the practice of Vedic culture.
Of course, I realize that this description of ideas is far from complete. There are many more ideas that can be developed and utilized, and I will no doubt be adding to this from time to time. Other areas of improvement should include college presentations, city temple congregational expansion, spiritual education in the form of philosophical seminars and conferences, and more. But the ideas that are described herein are effective, they work and can be duplicated elsewhere, only if other devotees, Hindus and Dharmists will take up the cause and help. This is also the way to help ourselves in preserving, protecting, and promoting our Vedic heritage. Remember, we need to keep India the homeland of a dynamic and thriving Vedic tradition in cooperation with its modern technological and economic advancements.
