Who are we?

People often ask us whether we are an NGO or a commercial organization. They bluntly question whether we have a vested interest in doing free counselling. They want to know if we are propagating a religion or a cult, or if we are clandestinely funded by some rich foreigners with shady motives. The answer to all of the above is a vehement No.

What we are cannot be defined in a conventional sense. Yes, we do provide free counselling. We never turn anyone away. We get perhaps 10-30 people walking in every day, half as many phone calls, and more than 50-80 emails per week. We attend to all of them to the best of our ability.

We organize two free lectures on all aspects of human behaviour every month. We encourage our students to take up independently any business offers that come to us. We give guidance and hand- holding to anyone who wishes to work in the field of improving or enriching quality of life.

We invite, nurture & encourage hundreds of volunteers to serve in different ways as per their convenience & area of interest. We offer our retreat Manthan at cost price to anyone working for a cause. We lend our training hall to anyone wanting to have a meaningful gathering/lecture or workshop.

More than anything else, we welcome anyone who walks in, if possible offer a cup of tea, definitely offer our emotional support or friendship... and we allow them to walk away into their own world to seek their own path. A few of them do send us their thanks.

Can someone tell us what or who we are?
