Prasanna Jyothi Silver Jubilee Celebrations

12th May, 2015

For over 25 years Prasanna Jyothi has worked to transform the lives of girl children in need, providing them with a safe environment in which to grow and realize their full potential.

A part of the Trust’s social service programs, this home for girl children in Bangalore has given underprivileged girls an opportunity for a better life. Many of them today are married with children of their own.

This April 26th marked the Silver Jubilee of Prasann Jyothi. We wish to thank all the people along the way who have selflessly contributed to taking care of girls at the home. We could not have achieved this milestone without your continual support.

 

 

'The greatest stress children go through is the greed to be somebody and the fear of being nobody...Each one is unique. Enjoy this uniqueness. Why become somebody? Why not be you? When you are lost in comparisons, you are caught up in competition...learn to compete with your potential.'

    - The Art of Wise Parenting,
       Swami Sukhabodhananda

At our home for girl children, we work to increase their confidence, to make them realize their own uniqueness and in doing so, achieve their full potential. 

 



Distribution of Artificial Limbs and Calipers

12th May, 2015

During Swamiji’s birthday celebrations and in the run up to it, we reached out to nearly 60 people in need of artificial limbs and calipers. 

This initiative is  carried out regularly in Prasanna Trust, both in its headquarters as well as various chapters across India. 

According to the latest statistical data, nearly 21 million people in India are suffering from some form of disability or other, of which 27.9% are disabled in movement. 

By providing them with the support they need, we hope to improve their quality of life. Contact us here to find out how you can contribute to this initiative. 

 



Blood Donation, Scholarships and Annadanam

12th May, 2015

 

 

This April, we conducted a blood donation camp at Nirgun Mandir. Blood donation camps are another one of the social service initiatives we carry out regularly. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annadanam, or providing meals for the underprivileged, is something that many of our chapters carry out. In recent months, we have provided meals for hospitals, schools, old age homes, among others. 

Some of our chapter members contribute financially to these initiatives, while some contribute in kind. Smt. Annapurna and Sri. Venugopal, members of our Hyderabad chapter, have been providing hot meals cooked in their home to about 250 attendants of the patients of Govt. Niloufer Hospital for Children. They have been doing so every 3rd Saturday, since July 2014. We applaud them on their efforts.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During Swamiji's birthday celebrations, we were also able to give out scholarships to those in need of financial assistance for further studies. 

Contact us to be a part of these initiatives.

 

 

 



A thesis on Swamiji's book 'Oh, Mind Relax Please!'

23rd Apr, 2015

Kedar Shah, from Santa Clara University Leavey School of Business Spirituality of Leadership, wrote a thesis on 'Oh, Mind Relax Please!', one of Swamijis most popular books. Writes Shah, "I found the best approach was to enjoy it like fine wine. I dipped gently into individual chapters and stories...The more a chapter spoke to me, the more I would read and re-read that chapter story in order to internalize its message for my life. Because the lessons are so profound, they require time and focus to truly apply into my life."

The book, which delves into what Swamiji calls the mystery of life explores how spiritual truths can be applied to living happier, more relaxed lives. At the crux of his teaching is that the mind can create both heaven and hell. Mastering it, will make the difference happiness and misery. Read about Swamiji's books here
