“For what is a nation? What is our mother-country? It is not a piece of earth, nor a figure of speech, nor a fiction of the mind. It is a mighty Shakti, composed of the Shaktis of all the millions of units that make up the nation, just as Bhawani Mahisha Mardini sprang into being from the Shakti of all the millions of gods assembled in one mass of force and welded into unity. The Shakti we call India, Bhawani Bharati, is the living unity of the Shaktis of three hundred million people, but she is inactive, imprisoned in the magic circle of Tamas, the self-indulgent inertia and ignorance of her sons.” ~ Shri Aurobindo, Bhawani Mandir, 1905.
Sarayu Foundation Trust is singularly focused on bringing about change - real, tangible change in the perceptions of ordinary Indians regarding their identity, their history and their civilization in order to awaken the dormant Shakti within them.
Sarayu Foundation Trust is facilitating this change by running a number of projects that promote a deeper understanding of Indian civilization and culture, dispel the fog of coloured and distorted history, challenge the skewed extant discourse and reclaim the narrative about India to where it rightfully belongs – with the Indians.
