  1. Really appreciate the work of providing homes for sadhus, it touched my heart. Will try and visit the babas at the forest soon. Also, will arrange for some donations.

    Once again thank you so much for such selfless work, hope one day I will be able to participate.


  3. We appreciate the opportunity provided to us, through this website, to be of some service to people back home in India.
    Hare Krishna!

    One small request though. It would be good if you have an option in the pulldown to add “All of the above” option. It is hard for me to select a choice between any of the options – should I chose between feeding to clothing for children over cow protection. I trust the organization to make necessary of funds to their apt use. My opportunity is to provide some money for the service of the poor and I am OK with any way my contribution can be of help.

  4. Dear Ashram…how can I visit this children…I would like to personally like to be of service as a volunteer…
