Vrindavan Seva Pilgrimage
For over 600 years, Vrindavan has been home to widow mothers who come in large numbers from all parts of the country. Abandoned by their family and looked down upon, they endure social and cultural discrimination, forced to beg, and live a life with no dignity or respect.
In December 2014, the Paramhansa Yogananda Public Charitable Trust launched its operations in Vrindavan to serve the Mothers’ needs. The work has now expanded to include over 4000 widows, sadhus, poor women and children and provides for basic needs such as housing, food, clothing, medical, social, economic, emotional and spiritual well-being. The focus of the Trust is to spread “Joy” in the communities of Vrindavan by raising their consciousness and by providing an environment of love, care and compassion.
Starting this year, Ananda Pune is leading a special Seva Pilgrimage to Vrindavan. This is a sacred opportunity to meet our Mothers and share our love with them through kind acts of caring, listening, serving, chanting, visiting and having meals with them. Evenings will be spent in the temples of Vrindavan filled with the vibrations of Radha- Krishna. We will meditate with the Mothers, and relive the
fun-filled days of Krishna and the Gopis, as we dive deep in chanting, meditation, and seva.
