Board of Directors
The Board’s purpose is to serve the vision of Swami Tripurari by working to make his teachings accessible to those who are interested in a comprehensive spiritual alternative to material consciousness.
Living in an ashram is a magical and sobering experience. The devotees living at Ananda Ashram see to the daily care of Sri Sri Gaura Radha Madhava and their cows and dairy, care for guests and visitors, maintain strong spiritual practices as well as previous developments at Saragrahi and work daily to push forward Saragrahi’s progress.
It takes individuals to raise a community and Saragrahi community is rising. These devotees have all moved to the local area and assist in Saragrahi’s development. (there are more on the way 🙂 )
Pioneers leave the comfort of the status quo, brave a whole new world and make something from nothing (so to speak), and in so doing prepare the way for others. Pioneers forge the foundation of what is to come. Devotee pioneers are a special breed of pioneers because they leave their comfortable situations and head into the unknown for one main reason – to please their guru and to expand the reach of his or her service. The many who come after them experience the ground made soft by the sweat of these pioneers, and walk carefree through the forests chiseled and nurtured by their calloused hands often times never even knowing who they are. These are Saragrahi’s first pioneers. These are the people who were instrumental in laying the corner stones of what you see today.
In addition to those who serve physically at Saragrahi, there are many people who make up the foundational core by assisting to secure the land on which Saragrahi is manifesting.
