Your support will enable us to maintain the ashramas both in America and India as places of peace and sanctity. Your donations will go a long way in furthering the objectives of our mission of serving God through humanity.

There is no sight equal to learning, no austerity equal to truthfulness, no misery like passion, and no happiness equal to following the ideal of renunciation. The secret meaning of the Vedas is truth; of truth, self-control, freedom from all limitations. This is the sum of all the scriptures. Purity of conduct is the greatest purity. To think of God continuously, to worship him, to chant his name and sing his praises–this is the best way of attaining the highest good.” ~Mahabharata
