There's an old saying in India... "a hungry stomach does not know God."

Thus ... when we share our abundance, no matter how big or small it may be,
we help keep spirituality alive in our society and the world;
we experience an incredible joy and "oneness" from doing so,
and we likewise enable others to do and enjoy the same.

Can there really be any higher purpose to life than this ..
to enjoy personal joy and peace in life,
and thru sharing and serving, enabling others to experience the same?
 Is there a definition of "Liberation" which does not embrace this?

Most likely, not so.

May all beings enjoy such peacefulness and joy within;
and putting such smiles in the lives and hearts of others.
Jai Ma!

We enjoy the privilege of financially supporting needful and sincere spiritually-focused families (and individuals) and Sadhus (Monks) in India & USA. In the 1970's, in Sri Lanka, we also did much service to a rural village, and also a community of 55 shanty-dwelling families living along the RR tracks in downtown Colombo (B & W photo below). That ended with a joint project with the Prime Ministers office to relocate those families to gov't built homes in the outskirts of Colombo.  Thus, from the early 1980's to present, our focus has been primarily in India.

Various forms of seva (service) occur thru contributions of
 clothing, medicine, vitamins & other supplements, money, materials and tools for
self-improvement, self-employment, better health, education of children, home improvement or repairs,
spiritual pilgrimage, and so on.

Certain individuals or families receive this on a fairly regular basis;
others on a per need or request basis;
and once per year a gift of money (usually $200) is given from our "Krishna Roy Memorial Fund" to someone in need in USA.

When our Monk or friends visit India & Sri Lanka, contributions of medicine, vitamins & other supplements, and used clothing from friends and thrift shops are usually taken along for distribution. Extra funds are also sent for gifts and "spontaneous" service as occasions arise.


Every moment of life can be a meditation...

and, every action a gift of love and service.

In this way, our whole life eventually becomes

an ongoing process of self-purification and service,

through awareness of self... and doing service.

Would you like to help with our social work in India?

For assistance to poor folks in any 3rd world country, no amount is too small or too large.

In India: $20/month = private English language school for one child at Elementary level;
         $50/month = basic necessities for a single-mom family, 3 kids;
$100/month = fairly well full monthly expenses.

         $10-20/month is not a hardship for most of us, yet it can do wonders for social work in India and elsewhere.
If one wishes, Internet Banking enables fixed monthly donations as well as random. 
Soon we intend to set up a PayPal account.
