With Guru putting the greatest emphasis on rightful ‘karma’ to facilitate spiritual evolution, Santhigiri Ashram has started a number of units to provide meaningful work to its followers. The human body is the means to accomplish our ‘karmic’ cycle, Guru said. Thus, there is no separation of ‘materialism’ and ‘spiritualism’ in the Guru’s way. The evolution of the soul through self-knowledge and self-realization goes through the medium of materialism or purposeful ‘karma’ in the physical world.

The various industrial units being run under the aegis of Santhigiri Ashram serve a twin purpose. On the one hand, these help the individual aspirants to hone their ‘karma’ and on the other provide a variety of good quality and reasonably priced products and services, imbued with the goodness of prayers, to the society.
