Ref.: Vedic Care Vrindavan
The seed of an idea was planted.
The idea was to emphasize the need to care for sick, neglected, isolated and dying devotees and spiritual seekers in need.
We started the Vedic Care Charitable Trust.
We don’t know how long we have left, so let us use every moment preciously.
Very few want to think of these things.
Not my family.
And when someone gets sick, then we react.
Why not preventative medicine?
Why not create caring assisted living places?
Why not do this everywhere?
There is enough resources in our community.
People build temples,
havelis and businesses,
but no care facilities.
We remembered all the friends who we serve with and served with,
So we the Vedic Care Charity (VCC) have been working and serving with love and trust to implement these ideas.
Some people have resonated with the message and some have actually volunteered
Very little funds have been coming in, but still we are caring for 10-15 people at a time with our out-reach, counseling and triage.
Some have even challenged and vilified our sincere efforts.
And yet we go on.
The care idea seed grew into little plants in Australia, England, Belgium, Vancouver, Maui, Brazil, Spain, and now by Radharani & Krishna’s blessing and grace, we have been given a 16 room Ayurvedic and multi-faceted healing and assisted living center, with beautiful surrounding gardens in holy Vrindavan.
I lived in Vrindavan for six years when I oversaw the building of the Krishna Balaram Temple, so I am experienced with how things go on there.
We need to clean and start repairs, before we can start.
We need funds, people and equipment.
