Have you ever wondered why our governments loot the Hundi collection at Hindu temples across India whereas they dare not to touch Churches and Mosques?
Stephen Knapp (www.stephen-knapp.com) discusses this subject through one of his latest books, Crimes Against India and the Need to Protect its Ancient Vedic Traditions.
For many, this news will be entertaining or interesting; for some, this is just a painful reminder on the lost values of Sanatana Dharma which, in a religious costume, is called Hinduism. There’s nothing new about it. This has been happening for a long time and we, the so-called Hindus, are mute spectators to the govt. atrocities against Temples for several decades.

What is the use of a temple if its spiritual vibrancy is not enhanced day after day through rituals? Have you ever heard someone say about his or her experience, while inside a temple, on positive vibrations?
The act of consecration of Deities in a temple is only the first step towards building a place of worship which will become divine and sanctified over a period of time. This can be compared to giving birth to a baby. Does the responsibility end there? No, it just begins!
