Dāna

We have people around our village who is bedridden sick.  The NGO’s and Government health department workers visit them once in a month or whenever they needed the help.  But the problem they face is the transportation. Also during covid scenario, poor people need transportation to take them to hospital for admission when they find positive result in covid test.  So we decided to buy a vehicle for Arsha yoga and our voluntary staffs will drive 4-5 days a week for different health centres and voulentory organisations.  We estimated 5,50,000 Indian Rupees (6600Euro) for this purpose.

Dāna is an intrinsic charity attitude. Practising Dāna burns Karma.  Dāna can be of 3 levels. Adhama dāna –  dāna of material things like food and house which make the receiver dependant.  Madhyama dāna makes the receiver capable to earn for his livelihood.  Pradhama dāna is imparting knowledge which makes the receiver capable of reducing  consumption and minimising his needs. Arsha yoga mainly imparts spiritual knowledge which helps to reduce the gap between demand and supply of human needs.

Our graduates find recruitement in schools and other health oriented institutions.

Prosperity thrives on education. Education doesn’t mean to memorise facts or collect information, but to live happily in peace with yourself and the society.

Currently, we are in need of support for 2 charitable causes:

  1. Support for Abhishek: Abhishek is our neighbour, 10 years old, studying in a local village government school free of charge. However, his mother is a single parent and has to provide for both of them. In rural India, normally the husband will be providing financially for the family and the wife will be taking care of the home as it used to be the case anywhere in the world previously. Arsha Yoga is supporting Abhishek’s educational and other expenses with 1.000 INR (13€) per month. If you wish to contribute, please contact us directly at [email protected] and we will send you the bank details.
  2. Drinking water for local school: the local government school N.E.U.P, where Gayatri is also studying now in 2nd class, is in need of a big water filter for providing  safe drinking water to the more than 300 children. The total cost is 35.000 INR  (450€). If you wish to contribute towards this cause, kindly contact us via [email protected]
