    saadhu santhas

    from Gangotri, Uttarakhand

Story

COVID  has affected everyone in one way or other including the saadhus in the Himalayan region (Badrinath, Kedarnath,  Uttarkashi, Gangotri).

Saadhus form an important part of the sanaatana dharma. Their lifestyle and spiritual journey sustains the sanatana traditions. Their intellectual and spiritual journey is a wellspring for our civilization.

Many saadhus who live in the Himalayas descend to Haridwar or Rishikesh during peak winters only to get back to mountains during summer to continue with their Sadhana. There are also many that choose to stay up in the snowy mountains of the Himalayas all through the year in pursuit of their spiritual journey despite harsh conditions.

The Saadhus seek/expect nothing from anyone. Aashrams, local businesses, travellers help them, out of a sense of gratitude, with offerings of basic materials like blankets, caps and food.

The local economy that sustains this support system is under severe stress due to covid related slowdowns. While we expect the situation to improve by next year, there is an acute need for the upcoming winter supplies. It presents us with an opportunity to do our part in sustaining this tradition. Please join us in this pursuit with a monetary donation towards basic supplies. Funds will be strictly used for procuring the following materials from local merchants and delivered saadhus.
Utilization of funds:

1. Food
2. materials
3. Blankets
4. Caps
5. Bags
6. Daily Needs
7. Groceries for 250 saadhus.
