This Chef Questioned The Purpose Of His Life And Is Now Changing The World

Hanuman Dass Written by Hanuman Dass

Namaste,

When I say Dharmic Action, this is exactly what I mean. The whole reason we set up Godharmic.com was to make a difference, to help bring to the fore content that we could share with each other and inspire one another to become better people.This is the story of a chef who questioned the purpose of his life and is now changing the world. Narayanan Krishnan in the CNN Heroes tribute below is a Dharmic Hero. As Swami Vivekananda said, Feeding the poor is feeding God.
This is such a wonderful story of an ordinary man, living an ordinary life who stopped and asked, what is the purpose of my life. He asked himsself he can remain blind to the suffering of the destitute on my door step. His doorstep is our doorstep too, may he inspire us to Go Dharmic..

If you liked Narayan Krishnan’s story please do share with love. You can also find more information about his story on his website here. The message is love and the commitment to the helpless, homeless, sick, elderly, mentally ill
and destitute in Madurai, India by providing healthy food, care, and opportunity to rehabilitate in order to restore human dignity.

Project Crayons

Hanuman Dass Written by Hanuman Dass

Project Crayons is a charitable organisation very close to my family’s heart. It is run by my cousin NeishaaGharat and family. We are all dubious about sending money abroad to charities, worried about whether the money reaches the people who actually need it. Here is I project I do not have to worry about.

My wife Sheena and I visited the Children’s home for abandoned girls on the Outskirts of Mumbai and meeting the young girls really moved us.

The Charity has grown rapidly in recent years and has some really wonderful projects. One which I particularly like is the ‘School on Wheels’. They recognised that many poor people are simply unwilling to send their children to far away schools; instead Project crayon’s now brings the school to them. It is heartening to know that there are still people in the world with innovative mind-sets who want to help people, this is Dharma in action.

Powerful Sunderkhand Chanting

Hanuman Dass Written by Hanuman Dass

Namaste,

Here is an incredibly powerful Sunderkhand chanting video by Shri Ashwin Pathak. You can feel the tremendous energy which emanates from him. It is almost as if Hanumanji is burning Lanka as he chants. There is no day in the year more auspicious than Hanuman Jayanti to recite this wonderful section from the Ramacaritamanas.

Jai Shri Ram

One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das

Hanuman Dass Written by Hanuman Dass

Readers of my posts will know that Krishna Das has played a big role in my life. He is a being who is drenched in bhava, he is a true vessel for love. Here is the trailer for the documentary and a message from director Jeremy Frindel who I had the pleasure of spending time with in Rishikesh a few years ago.

राम राम Hanuman Dass

For almost 2 years now we’ve been working to arrange a release and/or screening of One Track Heart in the UK, but have been unable to find a situation that worked. We have received many requests from people in the UK wanting to see the film, and have been trying our best to make it available. Finally now we are able to offer the film for purchase or rent through Vimeo! We are still hopeful to arrange some type of theatrical screening, possibly this fall, to see it on the big screen. But for now, please enjoy the story of Krishna Das’ journey in your home!
With Love

What is Dharma? (Free Download)

Hanuman Dass Written by Hanuman Dass

Many people ask me What Dharma is, and I looked through our website and found there was not much material actually defining what we actually mean when we use the term.

I feel the following free download perfectly articulates what we mean by the word:

WHAT IS DHARMA?

THIS DOCUMENT IS A SECTION OF THE BOOK THE POWER OF DHARMA

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE IT, PRINT IT OUT, OR DISTRIBUTE IT AS YOU SEE FIT.
