Chanting Pilgrimages to India with Russill Paul
Each year before leaving for India, I offer yoga classes with proceeds going to the many charities supported by Shantivanam Ashram in Tamil Nadu. To date, my students have generously donated over $5000. These funds have been used to build roofs on the homes of a local Gypsy tribe, support a co-op of weavers, buy uniforms and school supplies for girls at Lalita Orphanage, provide medicine, eyeglasses and other needed supplies at a facility for Seniors and help build a home for a family of five in a village that neighbours the Ashram. We also enabled a young man, named Mani, to attend Driver’s School and English classes. Mani now has his license, drives a truck and is able to comfortably support himself as well as help his family.
