Ray of Hope – First Shelter for Street Dogs in South Bengaluru
One day, Bhagavan's mother asked, "Why does that dog always like to stay in your lap?" Bhagavan turned to me and said, 'This dog is always in unwavering samadhi. A great soul has come in the form of a dog. Mother does not know this."
Raman Maharishi was a saint whose life revolved around the care of nature. You can alwasy see Birds and squirrels built their nests around his Ashram. Cows, dogs and monkeys found asylum in his Ashrama.
JP Nagar, Bengaluru : On 12th Feb, a group of people from JP Nagar, took a initiative which reminded me of Bhagwan Raman.
A ray of hope has come to South Bengaluru for the street dogs. The founder members Sukanya, Venkat and Srividya have done a marvelous work by starting a shelter for street dogs. The inauguration was done by Shri Madhu Bangarappa (MLA, Sorab, Shimoga District - son of the former Chief Minister S. Bangarappa). He gave his best wishes for the success of this unique initiative.
