Serve a Living Tradition.
The Grounds Repair and Campus Expansion Fund will improve the facilities at our international campus here in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, so that we can continue our important work in yoga, meditation, spirituality, and holistic health, as well as our global humanitarian projects. Recently we discovered the need for repairs to our 58-year-old septic system that will cost over one quarter of a million dollars. There are also several smaller projects that can no longer be delayed. We have outlined these projects and their estimated costs in the right hand column so you may have an overview of these needs.

During a casual conversation with Panditji on our recent eco-service trip to Mexico, I learned of the failing septic system and other repairs that are desperately needed to the Honesdale campus. The cost is quite high. Later in this trip, our group discussed the possibility of a fund drive, and it is in that spirit that I am writing to you today.
I have been involved with the Institute for many years; sometimes more, sometimes less. I’ve attended lectures, the first with Swami Rama in 1976. I participated in the Self–Transformation Program for a month in 1985, taught some hatha yoga classes in the early 1990s, and joined trips to India in 2005 and 2006. As I look back, wondering at it all, I recognize the importance of the teachings underlying these experiences; and I feel a sense of duty to give something back at this time of need.
Perhaps this reflects in some way your own experiences with the Institute; and I hope that you will join me in contributing to this fund drive for the Honesdale campus’s needs.

Are HI’s global humanitarian projects affected?
It’s not as easy to raise money for a septic field as it is for our humanitarian work abroad, so thank you for taking the time to consider making a contribution to the sustainability of our headquarters. Rest assured, our efforts continue in India, Africa, and Mexico and are going very well. We are committed to continuing those service projects. Every day we receive updates from our humanitarian staff about how we are helping communities create sustainable rural empowerment and social development. To learn more about these initiatives, please visit our humanitarian blog.
What about the new campus in Khajauraho, India?
Will it still be ready for the Kumbha Mela in 2013?
Our serene new campus in Khajuraho becomes more and more beautiful with each passing day. The campus’ projects are on schedule and on budget. You can see photos of our progress here.
