We would like to invite all your little angels to spend an hour of bliss with a great Master-Sri M. This is a golden opportunity for children to interact with him & listen to his mystical tales & experiences.
Sri M met his master at the age of 9, Maheswarnath Babaji, who came all the way from Himalayas to re-establish his past life connections with him. At the age of 19 he met Babaji who took him under his wings.
He has founded ‘The Satsang Foundation’ to assist the underprivileged to lead lives of self-respect, self-reliance and peace. He runs a free school ‘Satsang Vidyalaya’ for tribal children of Madanapalle in Andhra Pradesh. He also runs The Peepal Grove School at Sadum in Andhra Pradesh which has innovative and life-enhancing methods of teaching. Then there is Manav Ekta Mission that works towards spreading the oneness of all religions.
“If you move with people, with someone whose mind you think is very calm and quiet, then after some time, that calmness slowly comes into your mind. Seeing a person like that, who has no iota of self in him, who is as free as the wind, free as the bird, slowly the mind began …” Sri M
This program is taking place on 5th February 2013 and is open to public. This program is planned to start at 1630 hrs and maximum duration for this interaction is one hour. This program is being held at Mezzanine Floor, Maskan Building Community Hall, Karama. Kindly refer location map created by Mr. Ravi Shenoy. You may contact him for direction at 050-764 7253.
In 1999, Sri M procured a plot of land in Nakaladinne, a tribal settlement on the outskirts of Madanapalle. One day while on a walk, he saw kids wandering in the nearby fields grazing cattle. He had his trademark friendly chat with them and was dismayed to find they weren’t enrolled in any school!
On further prodding, he found out that the community was indeed willing to educate their children but lacked the opportunities or the means for doing so. This proved to be enough of a catalyst for Sri M. Along with a friend and a modest sum of capital he started a free school primarily for the local community kids – with free hot-lunch for all the students.
This initiative has proven to be profoundly transformative for a community that is completely and totally isolated from the rest of civic life and society due to many prevailing social constraints. After more than a decade of not uninterrupted schooling, Satsang Vidyalaya is well on its way to becoming a model school implementing the all important “Right to Education” philosophy in the local state of Andhra Pradesh.
Our vision is to enhance the capability of students to be on par with mainstream educational standards. As part of this project for upgradation of the school, teacher training is being conducted by best-in-class professionals. The school team comprises Director (Education) and qualified teaching staff dedicated to serving the less fortunate and living by the founder’s philosophy of selfless service. We need heartfelt contribution from you for upgrading the standard of the Satsang Vidyalaya.
