HJS’ activities of ‘Awakening Dharma and Uniting Hindus’ for Individual Spiritual Progress and laying the Foundation of the Hindu Nation
O Devout Hindus !
Due to a ‘secular’ Democracy today, the state of the society, Nation and Dharma is on the decline. A system of governance based on Dharma, that is, establishment of the Hindu Nation, is the need of the hour as a solution to the problems of Hindus. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has, therefore, undertaken the task of nationwide unity of Hindus through activities such as education on Dharma and awakening and protection of Dharma.
If you participate in this religious task by devoting as much time as is possible for you, it will be a sacrifice for Dharma (or God) and it will also accelerate your individual spiritual progress.
If the Hindu society is awakened from the perspective of Dharma, it can contribute to the protection of Dharma.
Hence, guidelines are given here on how to participate in these activities that are useful in laying the foundation of the Hindu Nation.
1. Classes for education on Dharma
The main reason for the great decline of Hindus is their lack of pride in Dharma. Hindus do not get education on Dharma anywhere. As a result, they lack pride in their Dharma. Hence, HJS is conducting classes for education on Dharma at various places.
1A. How to organise these classes : Taking into account the favourable attitude of devout Hindus in your area, organise a class for education on Dharma once a week in a temple, a hall or the house of a devout Hindu. In this class, one Volume of VCDs of ‘Dharmasatsang’ of HJS can be shown on TV or through a projector (HJS has 367 Volumes of such VCDs). Every 15 days, HJS’ volunteers can be present in these classes for clarification of doubts and guidance on topics such as abiding by Dharma and sadhana (Spiritual practice).
1B. Benefits of classes for education on Dharma
1. Since we realise the uniqueness of Hindu Dharma, our pride in Dharma gets awakened.
2. We get practical guidance on how to perform vyashti (Individual) and samashti sadhana (For the spread of Spirituality) for establishing the Hindu Nation.
3. After training, we can collectively undertake required action to protect Dharma in our area.
2. Balsanskarvargs (Moral education classes for children)
With the objective that good sanskars (Subconscious impressions) be created on children, HJS conducts Balsanskarvargs. You can organise these for children in the age group of 5-15 years in your area at a devout Hindu’s house or a temple. You can visit www.bal sanskar.com and accordingly conduct these classes.
3. ‘Jago’ SMS
Without resorting to any expensive means, HJS is sending daily news of onslaughts on the society, Nation and Dharma to over 3,00,000 Hindus through SMS’ or free messaging services on the internet. You too can send through your mobile or internet ‘Jago’ messages on awakening of Dharma to your relatives, friends, professional acquaintances etc. To get these messages, you may contact HJS’ volunteers in your area.
3A. Benefit of ‘Jago’ SMS
1. These create a network of Hindu contacts. In addition to awakening of Dharma through the SMS, Hindus can also receive guidance on what should be done in an emergency.
2. Since the text in these is on awakening of Dharma, it can also be written daily on blackboards outside any temple, squares etc. This activity will go a long way in creating awakening of Dharma among passersby.
4. Transmission of VCDs on the Nation and Dharma
HJS has made 25 VCDs in Hindi and 4 VCDs in English on the guidance of respected Hindu leaders on awakening of the Nation and Dharma in the ‘All India Hindu Conventions’ held in Goa in 2012 and 2013. Each VCD is of 1 hour duration and is useful in creating awakening about Dharma among various strata of the society (For example, youth committees, students, offices, ladies clubs etc.).
4A. Showing the VCDs : Depending on the convenience of the people, these VCDs can be shown through a TV or a projector in someone’s house, a temple, an office, a hall etc.
5. How to organise exhibition on awakening of Dharma
HJS has made over 200 posters on various subjects given ahead.
5A. On awakening of Dharma
1. Worship of Deities : Guidance on how to perform daily worship of the Village Deity, Family Deity, Female Deities, Deity Vitthal, Shri Ganapati, Deity Shiva, Deity Datta, Deity Maruti, Shriram, Shrikrushna etc. as per our scriptures.

8. Problems faced by Hindus in Bangladesh : An exhibition on the pain and agony of Hindus in Bangladesh.
9. Protection of temples : An exhibition on vandalism of Idols, takeover of temples by the Government, protecting the sanctity of temples etc.
10. Cow-protection and Ganga-protection : An exhibition of posters imparting guidance on these subjects.
These posters are available in 9 languages – Hindi, English, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, text of which is available with HJS. Referring to this text, we can decide on the subject we want to get printed on the posters in our own area.
5B. Space required : The size of these posters is 3 feet x 4 feet; 25 to 30 posters can be displayed in a hall that is about 100 feet long or a square space of 25 feet x 25 feet.
5C. When can the exhibition be organised ? : Depending on the subject of the posters, the exhibition can be organised on special days; for example, 26th January and 15th August, as also on public celebration of religious festivals, religious festivals of temples, places of religious fairs, marriage ceremonies, offices, programmes on awakening of the Nation etc.
The exhibition can also be organised in the adjoining area or at a conspicuous place in the village on a weekly holiday.
5D. Benefits of the exhibition on awakening of Dharma : So far HJS has organised exhibitions on awakening of Dharma at over 2500 places, and through this activity, many nationalist and devout Hindus are now associated with the mission of establishing the Hindu Nation. Over 2,00,000 devotees benefitted from HJS’ exhibition in the Kumbha Mela in 2013. Through this exhibition, over 2000 people throughout the country contacted HJS to participate in its mission. Over 40 Saints invited HJS to organise exhibitions in their area, and extended all assistance to HJS. This helped the mission of establishing the Hindu Nation reach every corner of the country.
6. Sponsoring literature on awakening of Dharma and its distribution
These posters and texts sponsored by HJS such as ‘Dharmashikshan Posters’, ‘What is the need for a Hindu Nation ?’, ‘Religious conversions and purifying the converted’, ‘Beware of the conspiracies used for religious conversions’, ‘Protect the Divine River Ganga’, ‘Self-defence Training’ etc. can be sponsored by devout Hindus. These can be distributed too.
6A. Posters on awakening of Dharma : These can be put up permanently at public places such as temples, hospitals after taking permission. This will bring about awakening of Dharma among those who visit these places.
6B. Texts on awakening of Dharma : These can be gifted to people who visit the exhibition on awakening of Dharma, respected people in the nearby areas, devout Hindus who help in our mission of spreading Dharma etc.
7. Effective medium of creating awakening among Hindus : Hindu Dharmajagruti Sabhas
With the objective of creating awakening among Hindus and their unity, HJS has been organising Dharmajagruti Sabhas since 2007. By August 2013, HJS had educated over 11,00,000 Hindus in 7 States about the onslaughts on Dharma through over 900 Hindu Dharmajagruti Sabhas.
7A. How to organise a Hindu Dharmajagruti Sabha ?
1. Manpower : A Dharmajagruti Sabha can be organised with the help of 10 volunteers.
2. Duration : A Dharmajagruti Sabha can be organised any time for 8 months after monsoons.
3. Venue : A Dharmajagruti Sabha can be organised in a hall or an open ground in a village that has a minimum population of 5000 to 6000 or in a city.
7B. Benefits of a Hindu Dharmajagruti Sabha
1. It is difficult to go to each house and create awakening on Dharma or to find Hindus who have a liking to serve the cause of Hindutva. A Dharmajagruti Sabha awakens Hindus in that area on Dharma and it becomes easy to find Hindus to serve the cause of Hindutva.
2. On listening to the details of onslaughts on Hindu Dharma presented in the Dharmajagruti Sabha, some devout Hindus get the inspiration to take some action to oppose the onslaughts.
3. They register their names on the remarks sheet provided after the Dharmajagruti Sabha for participating in the classes for education on Dharma, exhibition on awakening of Dharma or self-defence training and then become proactive through these activities.
4. From the audience of the Dharmajagruti Sabha, groups of Hindus organise Dharmajagruti Sabhas in their area or village.
8. Self-defence training class
In addition to uniting Hindus, it is necessary that they be made physically strong to establish the Hindu Nation.The activity to unite the weak Hindus and make them strong includes organising free self-defence training classes at various places to teach self-defence techniques such as karate, wielding sticks etc. When the Hindus will unite and become strong through these classes, it will effectively repulse the onslaughts on Hindu Dharma.
8A. How to organise such classes ? : A self-defence training class can be organised for one or two days in a week in an open ground. Publicity of the class can be done through posters at schools, colleges, gymnasiums etc., distributing pamphlets as also through lectures on the ‘Need for self-defence’. Help from those who have learnt Karate, stick-wielding etc. can be taken to start this activity. After the training, young volunteers can themselves take self-defence training classes.
1. Karate : In a duel, 1 goon can be tackled at a time.
2. Use of a stick : 4-5 goons can be tackled at a time with a stick (that is easily available).
3. Nanchaku : Since this can be rotated, it is possible to escape from a mob of goons.
4. Use of catapult : This helps tackle a mob of goons as done in guerrilla warfare. Many times, anti-Hindus attack Hindu processions with the help of catapults.
HJS will make trainers available to Hindu organisations that wish to provide this training to their volunteers.
9. Activities for protection of the mother tongue, the Nation and Dharma
By undertaking the following activities, we can work throughout the year for awakening of the Nation and Dharma.
9A. Protecting the mother tongue
1. Spread the message that nameplates on the doors of houses and offices should be in the mother tongue.
2. Request shopkeepers to write the name of their shops in the mother tongue and not in English (For example, instead of ‘Suruchi Hotel’, they should write ‘सुरूची भोजनालय’).
9B. Abide by Hindu culture
1. Impress upon everyone that birthdays should not be celebrated as per the Christian date and by cutting a cake, but on the tithi (Lunar day) by performing aukshan as per Hindu scriptures.
2. Greet each other with a namaskar (Obeisance by joining the palms) instead of a handshake.
3. Celebrate Shivajayanti and Anniversaries of national heroes unitedly and remember them.
4. Celebrate Public Ganesh festival, Navratri festival etc. in an ideal manner for uniting Hindus.
5. Do not celebrate western days – ‘Friendship Day’, ‘Valentine’s Day’, ‘Rose Day’, ‘Mother’s Day’, ‘31st December’ etc. and also enlighten the society about the cultural conversions that take place through such ‘days’.
9C. Oppose symbols of slavery
1. Convent schools prohibit Hindu students from abiding by Dharma such as applying of heena, tilak, wearing of bangles etc. Create awareness among the parents about such schools.
2. If the Convent schools hold exams during Hindu festivals or prohibit students from speaking in their mother tongue, complain to the Education Department.
3. If a school insists on western dresses such as tie, coat or short skirt despite Bharat being in a tropical sphere, compel the school management to stop the practice.
4. Names of invaders given to a village or a town are a symbol of slavery (For example, Aurangabad, Usmanabad). Agitate to change such names and make the original name prevalent.
9D. Oppose evil tendencies
1. Implement various activities to solve the issue of addictions in villages.
2. Legally oppose those who gamble through matka and those who spread hatred for castes.
3. If the wealth of Government employees is disproportionate to their known sources of income, understand that they indulge in corruption. Convince such employees that though they feel they are doing it for their family, they only will have to suffer the resultant demerits; discourage them from indulging in corruption. Else, complain against them.
4. Legally oppose vegetable vendors who cheat in weights and measures, mill-owners and shop-keepers, those who adulterate grains, petrol etc., conductors who refuse to return change after we buy a ticket, those who cheat in repairs of TV sets, bikes etc., those who divert water from canals to their own fields, educational institutions that demand donations for admissions etc. as also Policemen who conveniently turn a blind eye to such malpractices.
9E. Prevent harm being caused to Hindu Dharma and thus enhance love for Dharma
1. Prevent denigration of Deities taking place through clothes that have pictures of Deities, tiles on staircases with pictures of Deities, drawing distorted pictures of Deities etc.
2. Lawfully reprimand those who ridicule Deities, Saints and Hindu religious customs through the medium of lectures, books, newspapers, TV channels etc.
3. Raise your voice against the malpractices of forcible donations at the time of Hindu festivals, noise pollution, dancing in processions after drinking alcohol, eve-teasing etc., and prevent them from taking place.
4. Prevent presentation of non-religious programmes at the time of festivals in temples, such as orchestras, entertainment plays, films etc., and make efforts to protect the sanctity of temples.
5. Boycott newspapers and TV channels that spread anti-Dharma views.
9F. Take initiative for self-defence, protection of your village and Dharma
1. Protection from goons : Due to legal loopholes, the Police consider goons who abuse, create nuisance at public places, create a scene after drinking alcohol, pelt stones and thrash people, give life threats, spread terror etc. as non-cognizable offenders. Reprimand such goons and prepare for self-defence.
2. Protection from anti-Hindu sects : Fanatics indulge in attacking Hindu processions, rioting, abducting Hindu girls through ‘Love Jihad’, cow-slaughter etc. Christians convert Hindus through lure, deceit or force. Protect Hindu Dharma and the society from such attacks.
3. Protection of temples : Other sects indulge in fanatic activities out of hatred against Hindu Dharma, such as stealing ornaments and money from temples, vandalising Idols, denigrating religious places by throwing meat or hanging a shoe in the temples etc. Protect temples from such incidents. Make arrangements in a manner that villages are grouped and night patrolling can be done by turns.
4. Inform the Police about anti-national and anti-Dharma matters.
9G. Establish a strong helpline for assistance to Hindu brethren
The followers of other sects instantly come together in large numbers when any incident takes place against them. However, Hindus do not come together in this manner. If any incident takes place against Hindus (For example, a riot or some injustice), develop a strong helpline for Hindus to come together.
