Introducing Project SAVE

One of my favorite things to hear about is children helping others.  There’s something just so inspiring about it!

So, naturally, I’m excited to share a very special new initiative that Tripura Foundation is launching, called Project SAVE.  And what better way to introduce it than to show you the following video!

In this video, Yadeesh, our Tripura trustee who works on the ground in India and has created new lives for many children and elders, shares a story about Project SAVE and three HoPE Heroes.

Press PLAY below to watch and be inspired by the heroic LIFE-SAVING efforts of these young girls and boys…

Stay tuned for more heartwarming stories to come and to learn more about the children featured in this video.

In the meantime, please consider taking a moment to visit www.tripurafoundation.org/donate_8 to discover how you can contribute to our efforts in creating HoPE for everyone! :)

The Benefits of Selfless Services

“Every day when you wake up, don’t just be thinking about your own bank account. You should dedicate yourself and your life to selfless service. The more selfless service you do, the more successful you will become.” – Dr. Pillai

Dr. Pillai has spoken extensively on the subject of selfless service.  In fact, he dedicates his entire life to acts of selfless service – what a shining example we can all live by!

He says, “When you are selfish, you have boundaries. When you are Selfless, the boundaries are broken and you become Universal, all becomes yours. If you want the maximum results, do not be selfish.”

In other words, support, help and give to others without expectation of reward.

HELP FEED THE HUNGRY. DONATE TO OUR MILLION MEALS OF HoPE PROGRAM.

“With selflessness you won’t lose everything. You have to understand; it means you become unlimited, you become aware of God vs. having a small identity. The human tendency is to think, ‘Why should I have to give?’ You think of yourself all the time.”

Begin to have a broader view.  Instead of “What’s in it for me?” begin to ask “How can I help?”  Instead of feeling entitled to this or that, think of another person who is, right now, going without the most basic amenities you and I often take for granted.

HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  BECOME A HoPE MIRACLE MAKER.

Dr. Pillai goes on to say: “This idea is not new. When he left, Jesus said, ‘Do everything in my name and I will do for you.’”

How do we go about making a shift in a society that has become so self-absorbed?

Dr. Pillai suggests: “We need an education system that teaches you right from the start to be selfless, so people are geared to not develop a small identity but a Universal identity. Then people will think, “Primarily I’m unlimited consciousness, I’m Divine. I may do accounting work, but that’s a skill, a vocation. Primarily I’m involved in the evolutionary process for this planet.”

We must realize that, first and foremost, we are each involved in and responsible for the evolutionary process of our planet Earth.

“Things will change and miracles will happen. Human beings are just not used to it happening. In the Golden Age the only feeling is bliss; happiness for everyone. It is only when you want to hold onto everything for yourself that problems will come. All will be changed, human consciousness will be changed. That will happen through the death of ego (limited identity).”

HELP MAKE THE CHANGES YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD. JOIN OUR HoPE HERO CLUB!

“Human beings will become Universal. They will still have an ego, but it will be the Universal ego. Then, you will not just be confined to your mind/body/soul, but to the entire universe. Then you are Divine and Heaven on Earth becomes a reality.”

Thank you most sincerely for doing your part to help us make Heaven on Planet Earth (HoPE) possible.

In Selfless Service and HoPE,

On Thanksgiving, Remember Those Less Fortunate…

Happy Thanksgiving!

“Let us show our thanks by remembering those whose suffering is greater than our own.  When we eat, let us remember the people who do not have enough to eat.” – Dr. Pillai

The sad fact is that food is a luxury a lot of us take for granted, but there are those who struggle every day just to find one meal.

The good news is that in July 2013, Tripura Foundation launched its most ambitious project to date – to feed a million meals to the poorest of the poor – and Million Meals of HoPE has far exceeded that goal!

Currently, we distribute about 60,000 meals to vulnerable elderly people and families in mostly rural districts that are underserved by food banks.  Also, about 120,000 meals are given to HoPE Center children and the destitute, abandoned elderly that the children are caring for in their villages.

However, as I mentioned in our previous blog post our current donations have yet to cover our costs of operation for the year.  And so we need your help!

Many of us count abundant blessings in our lives, such as food, family, friends and conveniences, while so many others around the world go without the very basics.  Could you find it in your heart to share a little with a hungry child or destitute elderly person this Thanksgiving?

We make it super easy to donate — you can choose either a one-time contribution or a recurring monthly donation amount.  And every $1 we receive covers the cost of 5 meals!!

Please visit our website and follow the simple steps to help us feed those in need.  Thank you!!

Blessings and HoPE,

How to Become a Miracle Maker in Four Easy Steps

Hello everyone!

I’m Chandra Sullivan, and I’ve been given the opportunity to write regular blog posts for the HoPE Post blog, alongside managing the Tripura Foundation Builds HoPE and Pillai Center Facebook pages.  My aim in maintaining the HoPE Post blog is to make it lively, informative, uplifting, and inspiring.

Tripura Foundation’s current donations for the year have yet to cover its costs of operation.  And while we’re still serving those in need in the face of dwindling funds, we really need your help to ensure we raise enough funds to cover our costs and, most importantly, are able to continue serving those in greatest need around the globe.

Mohini (Elaine) Kueper, Global Director of Tripura Foundation USA, recently celebrated her birthday, during which she made a personal request: a plea for help in raising the funds we desperately need to continue making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

She says, “Like any mother, I cannot turn my back on my children in great need. Before the end of 2014, we need to raise $100,000.  For my birthday, I’m asking you to contribute anything you can to help my children. Even $10 feeds and educates a child for a month. 

Every dollar helps.  Every dollar counts.  Please donate anything you’re able.

I’m also asking you to create your own mini-fundraiser for your birthday, the holiday season, or any celebration where you can rally support from your family and friends.  We’ve found a way to do most of the work for you.

How to become a HoPE Miracle Maker in four EASY steps:

  1. Visit the HoPE Miracle Makers website.
  2. Choose an occasion. Whether it’s your birthday, a special celebration, or just because, decide what event you’d like to turn into a miracle-making fundraiser.
  3. Give us the details. We’ll create a customized fundraiser just for you, including your very own webpage, email templates, social media sharing ideas, plus an invitation to join our HoPE Miracle Maker Facebook group, where you can get support, share ideas, and receive encouragement from other HoPE Miracle Makers.
  4. One hundred percent of the money you raise will go directly to educating children, feeding the hungry, and providing entrepreneurial training to out-of-work women.

With the holiday season arriving soon, becoming a HoPE Miracle Maker is a beautifully unique way to celebrate a little differently this year, to bring to light the many who do without, to brighten the lives of those less fortunate, and to bring that much more joy to an already joyous season.  Join us and become a HoPE Miracle Maker today!!

With love, light and HoPE,

See The Bright Children of Rameshwaram’s HoPE Center, Thanks to Dr Pillai

Recently, a small group of Dr Pillai students were blessed to attend a Tripura Foundation charity fundraiser on the island of Rameshwaram, Dr. Pillai’s birthplace, and also the greatest karma busting vortex on the earth plane.

The trip was also like a mini-Ambassadors of HoPE Trip because Dr.Pillai’s students visited one of the HoPE Centers on Rameshwaram and shared their love and compassion with the HoPE Center children there who were part of the poor Rameshwaram fishing community.
These children had really nothing to their name other than the shirts on their back, but their enthusiasm and desire to learn and become better people, thanks to the benefit of Dr.Pillai’s Phonemic Intelligence teachings, was endearing.

The children were shy at first but once our unofficial “Ambassadors of HoPE” started interacting and playing games with them, the children transformed into enthusiastic bundles of joy.

We introduced the children to a little acting competition (thanks to a special effects app on the iPad) in which the children, along with one of our Ambassadors, had to act as if they were caught in an avalanche and were trying to escape.

As these children came from a remote fishing community, they had never seen an iPad before and what how it could conjure fantastic Hollywood type effects.

But once the children saw a demonstration, all of them couldn’t wait for their group’s turn participate and act out in a Hollywood special effects movie!

Here is one of the groups acting with our Henky:

By the time we had to leave, wonderful bonds of love and affection had formed between the Ambassadors and the HoPE Center children.
The photographs below say it all!

Every Child Counts! Tripura Foundation Strives to Uphold the Rights of Children

At Tripura Foundation, we are passionate about our cause to promote equal rights of children, to bring them out of poverty and suffering and to support their full participation in the social and economic development of their communities. 

That’s our vision and it’s the world we would like to build with you.

In our mission to alleviate suffering for children, we have employed many means and interventions. Through our observations in monitoring over 90 centers worldwide, we have found that our program “Phonemic Intelligence” is key to the solution of poverty eradication that we are achieving for underprivileged children in many parts of the world. Phonemic Intelligence is a set of brain strengthening exercises for children that has proven very effective in promoting enhanced learning ability and focus among children.

In this series of videos, you can learn more about the Phonemic Intelligence Program and how you can contribute to this solution reaching more underprivileged children across the world.

The Ever Smiling Boy!

This ever smiling boy is César Adrián Romo. When he started coming to the HoPE center, his grades were 6s or 7s out of 10s. Now he is having 9s and 10. He is 12 and is about to finish elementary school.

He said that he likes to be in the center better than in his house, that this is a good place to be. When he was asked about the practice of the sounds, he answered that he gets sleepy and starts recalling happy moments like Christmas, birthdays.…and his girlfriends.

The subject that he has mostly enjoyed was one about poetry in the philosophy class, because he found a way to express what he feels.

He still does not know what he would like to be. But he got really excited talking about science and an experiment where he had to explode a potato and the battery exploded instead!
