Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's vision of a stress-free society is the founding vision behind the Art of Living and its sister organizations. This vision translates into action in two important ways: various large-scale social transformation projects at the societal level, and powerful personal development courses at the individual level. The social transformation projects span such diverse areas as
- Holistic rural development
- Disaster relief and trauma care
- Free Education for the rural & tribal children
- Promotion of organic and zero-budget farming.
The Art of Living courses themselves result in stress-free individuals eager and willing to contribute towards the well being of society.
The Dharma SthambaYojana (DSY) is a unique initiative that serves as a bridge between these two seemingly disparate activities. On the one hand, there are the service projects, whose impact and effectiveness critically depends upon monetary resources. On the other hand, there are today millions of socially-conscious individuals (many of whom are graduates of the Art of Living courses), who are quite willing to set aside a portion of their income for the betterment of society. The goal of DSY is thus to effectively channel monetary resources, from the individuals who are willing to contribute, to the service projects in the field, where their contribution can have the most beneficial impact on society.
Dharma SthambaYojana (DSY) welcomes you, to be part of our various social activities by donating a part of your income. 80G tax exemption certificates will be given to you after making the Donations to DSY.
