A cordial relation

The only key for establishing a cordial relation is to do something for the others, knowing their needs.

Serve in silence and simplicity

We should do some service for which we don't get money, in silence and simplicity. This gives joy and liberates from the debts of one's individual karma.

The inclination to serve

Good Will is an attitude to have the inclination to serve at all times and to watch out for opportunities.

Service for the groups

The measure for service is: What have you done for the group? Natural groups form themselves around us, at home or at our work. We shouldn't define group in a too narrow manner.

“Wealthy Wind”

Dhanishta means wealthy wind. Wealth is seen as a means for fulfilment of life not in terms of money. Healthy air, water, living conditions, hygienic food, decent clothing and proper education is all seen as wealth. Serving to provide these necessities to the less fortunate enabling them to become self-reliant in life and further enabling them to evolve into complete and responsible human units is the endeavour. Dhanishta renders need-based service to life to enable abundant flow of wealthy winds to all those who relate to it.

Dhanishta was conceived in July 1992 by Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar. Dhanishta initially served to publish his teachings and writings. It later transformed into a full-fledged charity organization. The purpose of Dhanishta is to assist the weak and meek in every possible way and to educate humans to find a way into a noble living.

Dhanishta is accountable to the mentors, donors and to the governmental authorities. Dhanishta enjoys tax exemption, also for foreign contributions. It functions swiftly within the boundaries of law.
