We solicit your generous financial support
Atmashrama is formed with an objective of paving ways to rekindle Vedic Wisdom for Modern Living. Atmashrama was started in 2006 by group of professionals led by Dr. Raghavendra Acharya Rachuri, a distinguished techie turned Sanskrit scholar, who is leading from the front in bringing a change in the mindset of youngsters and kids towards our Tradition, Culture and Philosophy. With several unique programs like Madhwa @ Heart, Madhwa Lab etc., Atmashrama has been successful in catching the imagination of young hearts. A group of talented young kids are enrolled full time in Atmashrama Gurukula, and getting a holistic learning which is a rendezvous of Spirituality and Science. Atmashrama's team is committed to achieve its objectives with available limited resources at its disposal. A lending hand here and there would definitely a shot in the arm.
Why support us?
Two key undertakings of Atmashrama are Atmashrama Gurukula and Madhwa Lab. As Atmashrama Gurukula runs as per the stringent Vedic Principles no fee is charged for imparting the pristine knowledge to any of the students. The knowledge is imparted selflessly only as a service unto the Almighty. The Gurukula does not receive funds from any Government or Private Institutions or Mathas. The entire funding happens through generous donations from well-wishers who appreciate the good work that the Ashrama is undertaking.
The Madhwa Lab is a facility being developed by Atmashrama at Banashankari 6th Stage in Bangalore. This is being developed as a high-tech facility with a provision for a Mini-Theater and Electronic Lab (E-Gallery). With several innovative ideas, Atmashrama is leveraging the advances in technology to generate interest in youngsters and kids. The setting up of such a facility needs support from philanthropists who are willing to see the future generations in safe hands.
Atmashrama, hereby solicits generous donations from noble persons who want to join hands with us in preserving our tradition for the continued benefit of present and future generations.
You can direct your contributions under the following heads -
Infrastructure Development Fund
To impart quality education to the resident and non-resident, online and offline students, a high-tech infrastructure with state-of-the-art facilities is very much essential. Realizing the requirement, Atmashrama has embarked upon the construction of its own building housing the Atmashrama Gurukula, Madhwa Lab (Theater and Gallery) and Madhwa Pravachana Mandira in 2014. By the grace of the Almighty, the new Atmashrama building with Atmashrama Gurukula and Pravachana Mandira, Dining Hall with kitchen has been inaugurated by H.H. Sri Satyatma Tirtha Swamiji of Shri Uttaradi Math on 29/4/2016.
In the coming days, we are planning to complete the high-tech state-of-the-art Madhwa Lab which will house the Madhwa Theater and Madhwa Galleries. This is going to help both the Gurukula students as well as the visitors including children and youth who can learn, interact and download content about our rich tradition and philosophies. The estimated fund requirement for the Madhwa Lab facility is ~ Rs. 20 Lakhs. Donors are requested to contribute liberally for this noble project.
Estimated Project Cost : Rs 20 Lakhs
Atmashrma is incurring costs to fund the entire student's stay and learning including food, books, library and other technological resources like PC, Project with Screen, Printer etc. Atmashrama is following Organic Farming procedure to produce Vegetables for the consumption of the Gurukula. Apart from the residential students of the Gurukula, the Atmashrama Facility has regular visitors who come to attend classes daily and on weekends. All festivals are celebrated with religious fervour and devotion throughout the year. Sumptuous tirtha prasada is also served to all devotees during Special Events. Many devotees are benefiting from Daily Discourses on Srimad Bhagavatam and Sriman Mahabharatam both in person and online. All this incurs recurring maintenance costs for uninterrupted supply of Electricity, Water, Cleaning, Repairs, Security etc. Around 20k is being spent every month for the proper maintenance of the facility.
Estimated Monthly Maintenance : Rs 20k
Atmashrama houses a library with around 5000 books. Proper book shelves have to be provided to protect the precious books from getting damaged. New book purchases are also being made from time to time as per the requirement of the Students.
Estimated Project Cost : Rs 5,00,000/-
Atmashrama makes best use of Technology to achieve its objectives. With active presence over internet, requests keep coming to provide information through Live Streaming, Mobile Apps etc. This requires lot of investment from the Ashrama side. Also, Atmashrama requires state-of-the-art PC and Software to carry out DTP tasks such as Movie and Graphic Design to produce active and catchy content on the internet.
