Conspiracy of so-called RSS swayamsevaks to ---

      Ramnathi (Ponda, Goa) - ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ published news last month about a plot to defame Sanatan Sanstha using some TV channels. Startling information has come to light, which makes the reason behind this conspiracy clearer.
    In 2012, two girls major in age from a family in Uttar Pradesh had come to Sanatan Ashram to learn about spiritual practice. Their family participates in RSS activities. These girls expressed their desire to stay in the Ashram and perform spiritual practice.

Spiritual significance of Makar Sankranti

                    
        Unlike other Hindu festivals, Makar Sankranti festival is not dependent on the position of the moon, but on the position of the sun. On this day, the sun enters the zodiac sign of Capricorn. To compensate for the difference that takes place due to the revolution around the sun, every eighty years the day of Sankranti goes forward by one day. In the present period, Makar Sankranti comes on 15th  January.

CONVERSIONS : DO YOU KNOW THE HISTORICAL TRUTH ?

     Over the past few weeks, the media has been consistently showing news on the purification of Muslims in Agra as if all issues of national importance have been solved.
      Although the media has been terming the incident as a ‘conversion’, it is in fact, a purification process. Hindu Dharma is without a beginning. It has existed from the creation of the Universe, whereas the Christian religion was established 2014 years ago and the Muslim religion came into existence 1400 years ago.

                           Pakistan is reaping what it has sown !

       In indiscriminate firing, seven terrorists of ‘Tehrik-i-Taliban’ on a suicide mission killed at least 160 people, most of them children, after storming an army-run school in Peshawar, Pakistan on 16th December in one of the country’s bloodiest attacks in recent years.   Those killed included more than 132 students ! This is not the first suicide attack by the terrorists; however, the attack on 16th  December was targeted at the army-run school for the wards of army soldiers.

MESSAGES FROM H.H. DR. ATHAVALE

    O Hindus ! Since the time is not favourable, increase your numerical
 strength to establish the ‘Hindu Nation’ instead of becoming emotional !
H. H. Dr. Athavale
       When heretics or religious fanatics carry out any anti-Hindu act, a few devout Hindus cannot tolerate it emotionally and therefore, oppose it. In such a situation, the Police arrest only devout Hindus without getting to the root cause of their opposition. Many have had to face unnecessary physical assaults of the Police; criminal cases are also filed against these devout Hindus. They waste a lot of time in jails and in fighting court cases.

SOME LIKELY ACCUSATIONS AGAINST SANATAN AND THEIR REFUTATION

      As per sources, members of this Hindu organisation are now very actively currying favour with those who oppose Sanatan so as to collect material that can be used to malign Sanatan. Some points they will try to use include :
1. Sanatan Sanstha forces youngsters to quit jobs and perform spiritual practice.

Murli Manohar Joshi to inaugurate madarasa

      Kanpur (UP) - Veteran BJP leader and Kanpur MP Murli Manohar Joshi, who was associated with the Ram Janma-bhoomi movement, has received an unexpected invitation from a Sunni group to inaugurate an upgraded madarasa in Kanpur and address its students.

Maharashtra CM dissolves Shri Vitthal-Rukmini Mandir Samiti of Pandharpur

       Pandharpur (Maharashtra) - Last month, the Chief Minister Mr. Devendra Fadnavis dissolved Shri Vitthal-Rukmini Mandir Samiti. It is understood that a new Samiti will be set up soon and will be formed as per the Temple Takeover Act. Varkaris and devotees expressed joy over this decision taken by the CM. (Congratulations to CM Mr. Fadnavis for responding to the demand of Varkaris and HJS by promptly dissolving the anti-Dharma Samiti ! The CM should hand over the management of all temples to devotees ! - Editor)

Shri Viththal-Rukmini Mandir Samiti could recover 121.6 hectares of land after 30 years

Effect of the PIL filed by HJS exposing corruption in the Mandir Samiti
     Pandhrpur - As a result of the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in Bombay High Court against the Mandir Samiti by HJS, the Samiti had to take possession of 121.6 hectares of land and appoint a full-time Chief Officer on the Samiti. (It is unfortunate that devout Hindus have to approach Courts related to the corrupt practices in Hindu temples. O People ! Realise the harmful effects of the Government takeover of temples, and force the Government to return the administration of all temples to devotees only ! - Editor)

On Shiva-pratap day, Police remove a banner depicting Afzal Khan’s killing !

      Nagar (Maharashtra) - Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj had killed Afzal Khan on 28th  November; this day is celebrated all over Maharashtra with great enthusiasm. Devout Hindus at Nagar were also celebrating it, but the Nagar Police did not approve of it.

After a ban on the entry of Mr. Muthalik of Shriram Sene

        When Hindus are not permitted to hold a meeting,
        does it mean that Goa is a part of Portugal again ?

      Kudchade (Goa) - On 23rd November, ‘Hindu Dharma Suraksha Samiti’ had organised a public meeting to awaken Hindus. Sunil Singh, a Christian convert lodged a complaint with the Police and Deputy Collector Mr. Sudin Natu saying that this meeting would cause law and order problems.

Allow Muslims to offer namaz in Taj Mahal 5-times-a-day ! - Maulana Khalid

      Lucknow (UP) - Prominent Lucknow cleric Maulana Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahali demanded last month that Muslims be allowed to offer five time namaz inside the national monument, Taj Mahal in Agra. Presently, only Friday afternoon prayers are allowed at the mosque inside the monument. (Those raising such demands will tomorrow ask for ancient monuments such as the Red fort, Qutub Minar for offering namaz. Later, they will claim ownership of Bharat under the pretext that Bharat was once ruled by Muslims ! - Editor)

O Bharatiyas ! You blindly imitate Hollywood films considering them to be ideal.

                                  Understand the reality of Hollywood,
                         realise the importance of Bharat (which is the
              source of Chaitanya) and begin on your spiritual practice !

    The residents of a place and other aspects of the place influence the environment. Due to this influence, changes take place not only in the physical form but the subtle form too. ‘Subtle’ is that which is beyond the understanding of the five physical sense organs, mind and intellect. Subtle-changes affect man’s body physically and in the subtle. The distressing experience of an SSRF seeker at a renowned place is given in this article.

Bharatiyas do not even know what to imitate !

      Bharatiyas imitate the westerners in every field. In this case too, by imitating the word ‘Hollywood’, Bharatiyas in every State have named their film industry. This shows that Bharatiyas do not even know what to imitate and what not to !
- Ms. Priyanka Lotlikar, Sanatan Ashram, Goa. (12.11.2014)

Subtle-characteristics of the word ‘Hollywood’

     Repeating the word ‘Holly-wood’ and its subtle-analysis
 Experiment : Repeat the word ‘Hollywood’ for 2 minutes and experience what you feel; then see the picture based on subtle-knowledge here.
1. ‘Distressing vibrations in the picture based on subtle-knowledge : 4%’ - H.H. Dr. Athavale
2. ‘Proportion of vibrations in the subtle-picture : Ego, mayavi-shakti (Illusion-creating energy), akarshan-shakti (Energy of attraction), distressing energy, distressing vibrations : 4%’

Rs. 10,500 cr remitted by Christian missionaries : Why is the opposition mum ?

                            There is too much money at play
                 and also these missionaries take advantage
  of extreme poverty conditions of people and play with their faith.
     New Delhi - Now that the opposition has decided to bring up the issue of re-conversions, it would also do well if it debated at length the inflow of money amounting to Rs. 10,500 crore that is pumped in every year to Christian missionaries to convert people. As has been noted by Phillip Goldberg, the author of American Veda, it is not conversion, but coercion that is clearly driving the point that people are forced for numbers and not for faith.

BJP for national law to curb conversions

      New Delhi - Trying to turn the tables on the Opposition, the BJP-led Government on 11th November called for a nation-wide law to restrict conversions. “Let there be anti-conversion laws in all the States and at the Centre too,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said at the end of a three-hour discussion in the Lok Sabha on the ‘conversion by inducement’ of Muslims in Agra.

SANATAN’S TEXTS ON CONVERSIONS

     Religious conversions and purifying the converted
     The invasions of Bharat by other sects (Here Bharat means India) as well as on Hindu Dharma over the past few centuries are the cause for religious conversions (hereafter referred to as conversions).
     In the annals of history, we find mention of Bharat being invaded many times by foreigners, ranging from the Arabs to the British. Besides expanding their empires, spreading of their sect was very much the motive underlying each invasion. Even today, the descendants of these foreigners are active in Bharat and are carrying out their mission in a systematic manner.

Why are Congress MPs silent during conversion of Hindus ? : Asks Shiv Sena MP

      New Delhi - “Why are those who create commotion over the purification of Muslims in Agra silent when Hindu girls are being converted as a result of ‘Love Jihad’ or poor Hindus are forced to embrace Christianity ? Why do these Congressmen not demand that such conversions be stopped or action be taken against religious fanatics ? I strongly protest your stance !”, said Mr. Arvind Sawant, a first-time Shiv Sena MP from South Mumbai and a senior leader of Shiv Sena.

Muslim cleric threatens to pick up arms over conversions

      New Delhi - An alarming video of a Muslim cleric allegedly warning the Chief Minister and the Prime Minister of ‘dire consequences’ and talks of waging a war against the country if incidents of religious conversions are not checked surfaced in Muradabad District of Uttar Pradesh on 13th November. The cleric was referring to the religious re-entry of close to 60 Muslim families in Agra in Hindu Dharma by two Hindu groups.

Nation-wide preparedness of Christians to convert Hindus

1. A Christian religious front that is tirelessly working for conversions in Bharat : As per the ‘Catholic Directory’ of 1998, there are 1,19,250 missionaries, 15,101 Christian education institutions, and 47 lakh students are getting educated in these institutions. Such is the pace of conversions by missionaries in Bharat. Christians have targeted 75,000 Pin Codes in Bharat. - Father Johnson, USA

The State cabinet is likely to approve the demand and may introduce an Amendment Bill to Karnataka Legislature Salaries, Pensions and Allowances Act, 1956, in the winter session at Suvarna Soudha in Belgaum.
