Seva Retreat Paints a Mural for Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home

Our Seva Retreat 2016 to Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home had such an incredible time!  We were blessed to stay in the dormitory built by our Kirtan Aid funds and that we worked to move rocks for during our first Seva Retreat in 2014.  Each room has beautiful windows, stone walls, and a private bathroom.  The entire building is operated off the grid with solar and wind power.  There was even a yoga hall built behind it that has lovely bamboo floors and an incredibly ornate hand-made door (all volunteer work!)

Our sevadars this year were excited to paint a large mural with the children just outside the new dormitory.  Harnam Singh led us in the project (sponsored with paint by Liquitex…thank you!) and everyone, adults and kids alike, had a blast creating this beautiful piece of art.  We are thrilled they will get to  enjoy this forever!

Sat Nam Foundation’s Dormitory Complete!

ramanasdormitory3Our brand new dormitory built entirely through Sat Nam Foundation funding is finally complete at Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home in Rishikesh, India.  Many young children will finally have a clean, warm and safe place to live, learn and attend school.  We are so proud of everyone who contributed, especially our Seva Retreat volunteers who helped to clear the rocks to lay the foundation for this project and the musicians who donated to our album “Kirtan Aid: Orphans of Rishikesh”!

We continue to accept donations on behalf of the children at Ramana’s Garden to further their care and education!
