Save Hinduism

To report instances of denigration, please click here or send email to appeals@hinduawakening.org

As we make an effort to understand Hindu Dharma, be awakened about its concepts and live by its principles, the next step, naturally, is to preserve the glory of Hinduism and thus Save Hinduism. To do so, we have to share the unique spiritual science underlying Hinduism with others. We also have to peacefully protest and bring to a stop, any denigration of or assaults on concepts, symbols, objects and Saints held sacred in Hinduism. In this section we have made an effort to report various such onslaughts, to create awareness and to encourage peaceful and prompt protests from our readers.

Stopping denigration – an integral part of the preservation of Dharma!

In a broad sense, denigration means displaying something in an undesirable form/shape, different from its original form/shape. Any act or object that obstructs the emanation of subtle sāttvik vibrations of the Divine can also be considered denigration. For the purposes of preserving Hindu Dharma, we will consider the denigration of concepts and practices held sacred in Hindu Dharma. Such denigration can find expression in a painting, sculpture, text, words, sentences, plays, movies etc. and can:

  1. Adversely impact the faith of people in the Divine
  2. Set incorrect examples for future generations
  3. Create a doubt about the credibility of the Divine or its Symbol. Eventually, it can erode Dhaarmik practices and moral, social and spiritual values.
  4. Question the very relationship humans have with the Divine and the faith of a human in Divinity.

Note: You will notice that we have provided a protective border around each of the denigrated images. The border has in it Srī Krushna’s (Krishna’s) Name or chant (Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevay) to counteract any harmful frequencies that the picture emits on account of the denigration. The Name of God to be used as a protective sheath for any given denigrating image is obtained through meditation by seekers doing spiritual practice (sādhanā per Gurukrupāyoga)  under His Holiness Dr. Jayant Athavale’s guidance.

Protest and Report Denigration!

Many instances of the denigration of Hindu deities are reported to the Forum for Hindu Awakening. As the Forum strives to provide a platform for Hindu organisations, groups, leaders and individuals and has limited volunteers, it would be well appreciated if the reporting person could initiate a protest himself and update us on it and on any further developments.
