We cannot reach the end of the path to realization without helping other people spiritually. Service activities are means to take spirituality to all.
The Supreme sustains all creations with infinite love and compassion, unbiased, without expecting anything in return. So should we, His children, offer ourselves in the service of our fellow beings.
Yagna means to serve the world at large and expecting nothing in return. In this way, Yagna is a form of worship indeed. Paranjothi Gnanaoli Yagna Peedam, a non-governmental organization, was founded in 2006 by our revered Guru, Sri Sri Paranjothi Gnanaoli Mahan as a symbol of gratitude to Mother Nature. The administrative office is at Chennai and the service activities are carried out at Namandi, a village 13 km from Kanchipuram and Kayapakkam, a village 12 km from Achirupakkam.
The Yagna Peedam at Namandi runs a home for needy children. It aims to bring out a complete individual in man with noble qualities and necessary skills to be self-dependent and useful to the society. At Yagna Peedam, children are given experiential learning in a natural surrounding which gives them complete and lasting knowledge and makes them love Mother Nature ardently.
The Supreme manifests itself as superior intelligence (Heavenly father) and eternal energy (Divine mother). Paranjothi Gnanaoli Mahan's vision is to instill this truth in children so that they will grow up to become torch-bearers of this message around the world.
