1. Kanha Building Fund
Construction activities at the Kanha Shantivanam Ashram are going on in full swing. Beloved Daaji has graciously permitted the construction of a meditation hall to host approximately 50,000 abhyasis, along with dormitories and other allied infrastructure facilities. A project of this magnitude needs a huge amount of funds, so the Kanha Building Fund has been created. This is a sincere appeal to all of us to participate in this project and contribute to the best of our abilities. There is no compulsion whatsoever for the same, it is entirely voluntary. You can contribute to the project in the following ways:
I. CASH, CHEQUE OR DEMAND DRAFT
Donations can be given in any of our ashrams and donation receipts will be given against the same. Cheques and demand drafts should be prepared in the name of ‘Sahaj Marg Spirituality Foundation’. Cheques and demand drafts can also be couriered to Chennai, following the guidance here:
- Please send ‘crossed’ Account Payee cheques only;
- The cheque or demand draft must be in the name of ‘Sahaj Marg Spirituality Foundation’.
- Enclose a covering letter, including your name, full address, PAN card number, phone number and email address, mentioning that the enclosed donation is towards the Kanha Building Fund. Please sign it at the bottom.

2. Profile pictures on Social Media accounts
Some abhyasis are using the photos of our great Masters in their profiles or thumbnails on social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
You can easily realise that this does not honour the sacredness of the role of the Masters. It also does not demonstrate to others any maturity in the way we express our love for them. In fact our Masters always tell us that love should never be flaunted. So this is a gentle reminder that using their photos in this way is not an appropriate thing to do.
