Second letter written by the The Char Sampradaya Higher Education Committee.

(Provide spiritual education to all children, which invites their common sense to defend the great values of the traditions taught by the Vedas and the Rishis.)

1. To stop the killing of innocent cows for profits such as leather exports.
2. To stop the killing of animals in general by reawakening awareness that meat, fish and eggs are tamasic foods which disturb spiritual advancement, happiness and good health.

3. To preserve the sanctity of the holy Hindu Tirthas:

A. Stop all kind of pollution, plastics in general, organize plastic recycling, stop dirty waters or soaps being dumped into Holy ponds and rivers. Protect Holy soil from chemical pollution of any type. Protect the eyes from visual pollution of mundane billboards. Protect the people from sound pollution of blasting speakers over public areas.

B. Protect the Tirtha from car use encroachments of parikramas. Parking areas must be created which do not disturb the movement of the Yatris.

C. Yatris from all over the world should be protected from corrupt officials, pandas

demanding donation under threat of curse.

D. Guides in english and local language should be made available to explain the local places and important yatri information including local prices.

F. Construction in medieval towns should be restricted to not change or disturb the original beauty of a place.

E. Web sites should be created to offer such information to the whole world.

F. Construction in medieval towns should be restricted to not change or disturb the

original beauty of a place.

G. No activities prohibited by spiritual Hindu tradition may be promoted or visibly

exhibited in the holy Dhamas. Alcohol, prostitution, meat, fish and eggs do not belong within the sight of a Dham.

H. Separation of different types of garbage for easy recycling should be introduced to

give a good example to society.

I. Hindu tradition does not permit the viewing of obscene sexual behavior or of violent demonstration. Thus we protest any material to be exhibited in movies or television which contaminate the viewers and obstruct their path of dharma through mental disturbance.

J. Dharma committees have to be organized in all localities that advise the governments

not to make decisions which obstruct the spiritual tradition and welfare of the people.
K. A simple list of agendas and principles must be created signed by all spiritual leaders to protect Hinduism and Humanism. The world needs Heroes and Ideals. Politic leaders do generally not provide neither one nor the other. And it has to be made clear what is in the interest of all. In the service of Mother Bharat and Humanity. The Char Sampradaya Higher Education Committee.
