visit to a new vision
Posted June 14, 2007on:
Navadarshanam (new vision) is the collective effort of a group of concerned professionals who, after a decade of study, introspection and dialogue, had come to realize that:
- people all over the world today are caught in the dangerous, swirling, currents of the materialistic, urban industrial way of life.
- alienation of the individual from self, nature, and the Creative Power is going hand in hand with societal disintegration and ecological destruction.
This Trust was formed in 1990 to provide faciilites and a forum to come out of this cycle of disintegration and alientation by changing our thinking , actions and lifestyle.
Navadarshanam (“new vision”) is a charitable trust, devoted to exploring and adopting holistic and natural ways of fulfilling inner and outer needs, including alternative energy and farming technology.
Today, our hosts are three of the founders, Jyoti, Ananthu and Om. They will guide us on today’s tour of the farm, the technology, and tell us how Navadarshanam (Nd) is bringing new life to this once barren hillside.
They do welcome visitors, as long as we plan a day and intimate them well in advance. We definitely must have our next (or one of the subsequent) balaga meets here! I’ve been really curious, but have myself been postponing a visit to this for quite a long time!
Usha, I’m sure that you’ll like this! 🙂 There’s an article about them here…
