Establishment and mission of ‘Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’
O Hindu Brothers ! The Holy land of Bharat is a self-materialised ‘Hindu Nation’. However, the unrighteous rulers have maligned the Hindu Nation by declaring it a secular Nation. Since the present Democracy does not have the support of Hindu Dharma, the Hindu society and the Nation are facing a grave decline. To arrest the decline and to bring back the past glory to the Holy land of Bharat, it is imperative to reinstate Dharma in Bharat. To reinstate Dharma, that is, to establish the Hindu Nation, ‘Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’ (HJS) was established on 7th October 2002. In the last 12 years, HJS has successfully launched five activities – Education on Dharma, Awakening of Dharma, Protection of Dharma, Protection of the Nation and Uniting Hindus.
A. Education on Dharma : To impart education on Dharma to the Hindu society, HJS conducts classes throughout the country at over 160 places. Similarly, Sanatan Sanstha and HJS have prepared 367 Volumes of Dharmasatsangs so that Hindus get education on Dharma sitting at home. These Dharmasatsangs are relayed on 3 National and over 80 local TV channels. To educate the future generations in Dharma, HJS conducts Balsanskarvargas at over 200 places.
B. Awakening of Dharma : ‘Hindu Dharmajagruti Sabha’ is the principal activity of HJS on awakening of Dharma among the people. So far, HJS has organised over 920 Dharmajagruti Sabhas in 11 States in 7 languages. HJS puts up exhibition on various topics on awakening of Dharma such as ‘Protection of Kashmiri Hindus’, ‘Pathetic state of Bangladeshi Hindus’, ‘Education on Dharma’, ‘Protection of Dharma’, ‘Protection of the Nation’, ‘Hindu Nation’, ‘In the memory of revolutionaries’, ‘Protection of Ganga’, ‘Protection of cows’ etc.
C. Protection of Dharma : HJS staged agitations against harm being caused to Dharma such as denigration of Deities, insecurity of temples, nationalisation of temples, malpractices in public festivals, defamation of Saints, anti-Hindu laws, Love Jihad, religious conversions, pollution of Ganga, cow slaughter etc. or undertakes movements for awakening of Dharma. In Maharashtra, HJS created public awareness against anti-Hindu laws of ‘Anti-superstitions Bill’ and ‘Nationalisation of temples’; as a result, the Government withdrew the proposal to Nationalise 2 lakh temples and withdrew 16 of the 27 anti-Hindu sections in the Anti-superstitions Bill.
To protect Hindus in the adverse times, HJS conducts self-defence training at over 100 places.
D. Protection of the Nation : HJS successfully staged agitations against the harm being caused to the Nation – insult of national symbols, distortion of Bharat’s map, distortion of history etc. Due to these agitations, plastic national flags were banned in Maharashtra. To prevent distortion of the glorious history of Hindus in text books, HJS mobilised students, parents and teachers, and staged agitations in Goa. As a result, the Goa Government had to withdraw the text books.
E. Uniting Hindus : To unite the Hindu society, HJS organised ‘All India Hindu Conventions’ of Hindu organisations engaged in the task at regional levels in the month of June in 2012 and 2013. In the ‘Common Minimum Programme’ of uniting Hindus for the establishment of the ‘Hindu Nation’, 70 Hindu organisations from 21 States came together. As a result, agitations are being staged at over 50 places throughout the country every month against national and religious issues that adversely affect Hindus. In 2013, State-level Hindu Conventions were held at 20 places in 10 States.
Due to God’s grace, blessings of Saints, people who are working with yearning and cooperation of devout Hindus, the mission of HJS has spread throughout the country. The flames of the Yadnya (Sacrificial fire) being conducted by HJS for establishing the Hindu Nation, which has been burning for the last twelve years, are not limited to Bharat now; the flames have now crossed the border of the country and reached Hindus in foreign lands, carrying the message of unity.
His Holiness Dr Charudatta Prabhakar Pingale, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’s Rashtriya Margdarshak (National Guide) is an Ear Nose Throat specialist. In 1996, he started sadhana (spiritual practice) under the guidance of ‘Paratpar Guru’ Dr Jayant Balaji Athavale. Between 1999 and 2002 His Holiness Dr Pingale rendered service to Dharma as the editor of Sanatan Prabhat (Sanatan Prabhat is a proHindu newspaper that is printed in 5 languages).
As His yearning for God realization grew, His qualities of surrender and humility helped his spiritual growth. In 2012, Dr. Pingale was declared to have reached the status of a Saint (for more details, please refer to this article).
Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, is fortunate to have His Holiness Dr Pingale as the National Guide (Rashtriya Margdarshak). His Holiness Dr Pingale’s invaluable insight into the state of the Nation and Dharma has helped many devout Hindus in the protection of Dharma, as well as their individual spiritual practice. His Holiness Dr Pingale has compiled many books like ‘Importance of Kumbh-Mela and maintaining its sanctity’, ‘Ganga-mahatmya (Greatness of River Ganga)’, ‘Spiritual practice as per Guru’s grace’ (Gurukrupayoga), ‘Protection of divine River Ganga’ among others.
Currently His Holiness Dr Pingale is working tirelessly for unifying Hindus and the mission of ‘Dharma-jagruti’ all over India and the Hindus world over. His Holiness Dr Pingale presided over the three annual ‘All India Hindu Conventions’ that were held in Goa. True to the expansive nature of a Saint, His Holiness Dr Pingale has extended His support to the movement to declare Nepal as a Hindu Nation. In June 2013, he participated in the Global Hindu Convention in Indonesia and spoke on the ‘Need of Hindu Dharma World over’. In September 2014, He was the Chief Guest at the ‘Rashtriya Purohit Sammelan’ organized by ‘Rashtriya Dharma-sabha, Nepal’.
A ‘Lifetime achievement’ award from the 38th annual International Conference of the ‘Indian Institute of Oriental Heritage’, Delhi is testament to His Holiness Dr Pingale’s selfless service and commitment to the Establish of Hindu Rashtra and the rekindling of the flame of Dharma.
