Jai Sat Chit Anand,


Our prayers and wishes are with all those affected by the devastating earthquake and tidal wave affecting the region around India and Indonesia. The disaster is on an unimaginable scale requiring international efforts and collective support from all regardless of cast creed or race. We pray to Dada, Simandhar Swami and Dev-Devios for peace, calm and sukh & shanty for all.


Pujya Niruma’s special prayers and vidhi are being broadcast on all TV channels in Gujarati and Hindi.  Niruma reminded the Gujarati People that it was the whole world who helped us 3 years ago and asked the people of Gujarat to come forward and help wholeheartedly.


Following on from our experience of the successful Gujarat earthquake relief and rehabilitation work carried out, we have been contacted by certain Gujarat Government agencies & NGOs for the help.  As in the Gujarat earthquake work we want to develop a long term relationship with the people – NOT just a “get in – quick fix – get out” approach. So at present we would like to wait and closely monitor and assess the situation and then plan out a sound strategy for helping the affected people in the long term manner.


Please extend your co-operation and let us know how you can be part of this noble cause being carried out by our foundation.


The Foundation would like to do the best possible work for the needy while applying Dada’s principles of purity.

We continue praying for the needy and the souls of the departed.


Jai Sat Chit Anand
