Our Origin

Navadarshanam 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.

Our Aims

  • Exploring and adopting wholistic and natural ways of fulfiling our outer and inner needs.
  • Rediscovering our relationship with the creation and the Creative Power.
  • Giving up a path of development which fans consumerism, profiteering and growth measured purely in material terms.
  • Striving towards the transformation of self by reaching out to that Crative Energy which gives rise to all physical and mental phenomena.
