Sri Devanayagi has come a long way since she
attended her first
Agni Homa in the Netherlands, followed with being a regular visitor to the sound
healings in the Netherlands while Sri Param was there.
Inspired with Sri Param's work, she attend the first Tantra Teacher Training,
August 21st 2003, and then again for the 2004 training, and now in love with the
center, the children and the training she has decided to make India her home.
2005 inspired by the children of the village, she decided to start a mini
project, that is to work with the kids and help them change the way life has
served out to them
Her desire is to offer health services to the children, teach those who want to
learn English, and also feed the children who attend classes.
As an addition service, it is our intention to provide milk and eggs for
the children. Due to limited fund, we offer the kids who come here regularly a
healthy nutritious meal.
We have a group of about 15 kids who come here nearly everyday.
It sounds like a small group compared to 70 children in the
village. The parents have to see the benefit before more children will come. We
can induce more to attend, but that will cost lots of rupees, but just a few
Euro, about 500 per month.
These are tribal people that we are dealing with as such it will take time and
real endeavor to change their way of thinking and living. One day they will surely see
the benefit, as some of them are already enjoying the benefit. The children who do come
here everyday are really present and are enjoying what they do and find here.
We try to share with them a different view on healthy eating, cleanliness and
hygiene. Generally, this kids do not eat vegetables, just rice with watery dhal
curry, and pepper water.
Also, we let them participate in planting trees, keeping the property clean and
in the cooking, and they have a great time doing so.
They get rich nutritious food, that the kids are not used to eating, as such in
the beginning they use to reject it, and over time they have learned to enjoy it
and return daily.
The little boys, say that they come to the center because itís clean and quite and
that they have the opportunity to play games such as cricket, badminton and
soccer, which were partly donated by the participants of the last 2004 teacherís training.
We try to have every month a happening where we invite all the kids from the
village for a meal, on these days a lot of children come and some of their
parents as well.
So far, we raised about 1450 Euro, from the letter that Devanayagi sent out to
her friends, that was enough to buy the chicken and cows. and partly pay
for the building of the sheds. To help the project to get started Sri Param has
paid for the rest. To make this project work better we need to purchase
additional cows, then we can feed more children who come here.
Most cows bought locally are usually under nourished, and if we
seek to go inter district or state, it will end up being very expensive. At the
present moment we spend about 10 to 13 thousand rupees to buy what is considered
to be very good cows, but purchasing out of our local districts could mean
double the cost as such, it is cheaper to buy more cows.
We are harvesting corn to re-sown next year, and the remained will be used as feed, a
basic food for the cows. We also feed them mixed cereal feed, more for the
milking cow, and less for the pregnant mother cow.
The milk that we donít use is sold, so that it will pay for the care taker of
Everything together we are starting but as in every project to make it work
smooth and to have the full cooperation from the villagers it takes time.
We would like to attract an India dance -music and yoga teacher to the center for the
kids, so that they can expand their perception of India culture, which is very
rich. So fare we have managed to employ a music teacher.
Again these people are tribal people and their perception of the world is very
limited. We hope that the next generation of the villagers will not be victims
of circumstance. All that we are doing is for the local people, and one day they
will have take the responsibility to make this project that we will leave to
them, bigger and better. Hopefully they will learn how to make their own
personal surrounding as beautiful and clean as we try to keep the land that we
For that they need to be exposed to as many things as possible to let them know
the world and themselves otherwise their lives will be as harsh and limited as
many generations before them.

will be her home. She visited the village with our Master in November 2003 when
he came to purchase the land.

Now five year later, we have only 6 boys, who
have been with us from the start. Two of then are attending collage, and two
more will be ready for collage education.
When Shri Param first settled on the outskirts of
Killankulum in 2003, he did so with the intention of helping empower the
youngsters of the next generation by educating them to grow and better
themselves and therefore be better equipped to make a difference in their
communities and someday pass on their education-born privileges to their own
children. However, after four years of spending countless hours, rupees, and
resources educating, clothing, feeding, and exposing local village children to
the many options available, he noticed a re-occurring pattern preventing them
from truly receiving the benefit of all that he and his divine Goddess Sri
Devanayagi provide and share with them. The local children have families in the
nearby village and inevitably feel their true home is with their families in the
village. The un-hygienic practices and collective thinking of village life
prevent the children at IFC from making changes necessary to make themselves
eligible for opportunities outside of the limited options available to people of
their tribe and caste. Shri Paramís conclusion is: In order for the children
to receive the most benefit at IFC, they must make IFC their true home and sever
old ways of thinking and behaving. This gives space for them to develop and
embrace new, empowering behavior and thinking, really receive the support
available and make strides ahead in intellectual and spiritual growth.
