Vishwa Nirmala Prem Ashram

NGO for orphan girl children

“So, this NGO will work for women who are left by their husbands, by their family – who has nobody to look after – and also their children. Still I have not made the whole plans. But before starting Sahaja Yoga, I used to do lots of things like that. So I have quite a lot of experience. Our attention should be, really, towards people who are in trouble. Now – as we are now enriched with divine power – we should look after those who really deserve our attention. Also, we are going to teach them different arts and crafts and things so that, within two years they will be able to stand on their legs and they won’t be, anymore, beggars on the street. And I am sure you’ll like the idea of having one NGO here.”
-H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi; New Delhi; February 13, 1999

Vishwa Nirmala Prem Ashram-a project for the rehabilitation of destitute women and orphan children has been founded by Shri Mataji as a Non-Government Charitable Organization (NGO). It is dedicated to the rehabilitation of the weakest sections of the society, namely destitute women and orphan children, with focus on the girl child without any differentiation on the basis of caste, religion, region, race or colour. As the mother, women are naturally empowered as the creators and preservers of all humankind. However, some sections among women still remain the weakest and are discriminated against and exploited. The NGO aims to provide temporary shelter and vocational training to such helpless, destitute and abandoned members of the society, and to rehabilitate them for their socioeconomic and spiritual upliftment...have pure motherly love for every human,every animal,for nature and the whole mother earth. Develop inner balance and peace..be collective,tolerant and respectful to everyone.
-H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has inaugurated the building on March 27, 2003 and Her divine presence has blessed the Ashram to provide succour and relief to the needy and socially abandoned women and children. At VISHWA NIRMALA PREM ASHRAM they will be provided with basic necessities and amenities of life and will also be provided requisite vocational skills, to make them capable of sustaining themselves economically. The NGO will assist trainees in providing suitable employment. The residents will also be guided spiritually so that they are transformed to a state of inner peace and balance enabling them to face life in a much better way even after they leave the Ashram and are suitably employed to make them self reliant.

The vision of the ashram is to provide a joyful,secure and a loving life to women and children who have been neglected by the society. We are confident that equipped with this love,these family members will blossom into beautiful flowers and spread the message of compassion. The home has an environment which will give courage to the members to take up the challenges of the society and help to live a dignified independent life,which is being enjoyed by Sahaja yogis all around the world. We see this as yet another way of spreading the message of H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi of having pure motherly adoration for Mother Earth. Thus our aim is to provide ultimate inner balance,peace,tolerance and respect for each other. The enchanting building in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh has been designed by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Herself. A refreshing water fountain at the entrance of the ashram welcomes one and all. This leads to spacious, cool and shady verandas. The courtyard inside the building is teeming with life as it harbors goldfish ponds and a large birdcage, thus one is never far away from the melodies of nature. The garden surrounding the ashram is home for many trees, bushes, flowers, small animals and birds. Thus one feels completely in tune with Mother Nature throughout the year.

The building itself consists of four big halls which are used as dormitories and are amply furnished with cupboards, beds, tables and chairs. It is also well-equipped with a fully functional kitchen. Adjoining the kitchen is the dining hall where the ashram members get to socialise whilst enjoying the delicious food, cooked by the ashram members with love and devotion. A doctor's room, two guest rooms, an office and a room for the director also form the ground floor of the home. The first floor is occupied by a huge meditation hall and a small room for Shri Mataji. Apart from this, there are two rooms for ladies accommodation, General manager office, a training hall with sewing machines, small beauty parlour, computers and a library which is open to all the members living in the ashram. Each day begins with prayers and ends with talks of Shri Mataji or bhajan singing, to enable the residents to achieve a state of inner peace and balance. This is based on the principals of Sahaja Yoga meditation to achieve the highest state of awarenss. We give them a feeling of security, to enable them to feel loved and respected.

We nurture holistic development of children by imparting basic education and providing vocational training viz; beauty parlour, basic computer education, tailoring, embroidery, other handicrafts, for them to sustain their individual growth. All our children attend English Medium schools nearby. Their homework is guided by professional teachers, we have special tuition classes for our students and we also conduct computer literacy classes. In addition to this, emotional and behaviour development support, for each child is given to nurture their necessary life skills. Children are also involved with extra curricular activities like instrumental music, dance, sports, singing etc that helps to enhance their talent and skills.

Workshops are conducted to groom children in the field of hygiene and self care, cooking, art & craft, women self defence, to enhance their capabilities. Medical camps and counseling sessions help to support their overall well being. "Where the women are respected and respectable, there resides the Gods of our well-being- " by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi,Founder of Vishwa Nirmala Prem Ashram and Sahaja Yoga. The ashrams aim is not only to provide sustenance for the present but also for the future for these women. With this priority, women are trained to have various skill sets such as tailoring, beauty care, massage, health care, cooking, gardening, candle making and/or computers. The ashram also tries to arrange any other course outside which cannot be provided within the ashram. These women achieve financial and emotional independence, confidence to earn a livelihood within one or two years. They are also helped to find a job or get into matrimony.

The residents celebrate most of the local festivals, such as Raksha Bandhan, Holi, Diwali, Dushera and Christmas, and also enjoy their birthday parties. Our residents attend Sahaja Yoga seminars and programs held across India. They have been regular participants in cultural activities at these seminars and festivals. In addition to this, our children have been invited and appreciated for their performance at different occasions. Occasionally our residents travel to Pune, Chamba, Yamkeshwara, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Udaipur and Jaipur. The residents travel on excursions which includes visit to the International Sahaja Yoga Public School in Dharmshala, trips to different hillstations in Himalaya, the zoo and Handicrafts Museum in New Delhi and the adventure park in Rohini and Noida. Amidst holy and lush green environment, under H.H. Shri Mataji's guidance, it is ensured that residents at the ashram are groomed to be, a complete individual.

Nirmal Prem Ashiyana

Nirmal Prem Ashiyana is a sister project of H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi foundation. A day care home in Kirari, North Delhi , was opened in year 2016 with an aim to take care of poor and needy small children from neighboring locality whose parents work as labourers and have no secured place to keep their children. Children are provided with all day meals, elementary education with grooming in mannerism. Children enjoy meditation, indoor games and participate in various festivals. Workshops for singing and dance are also organized as part of other activities for children. “We have so many other areas where I find we have to work it out. That if this compassion is within you, then it will compel you also to do work that will bring solace to people who are not even seeking. I’m already busy with forming some NGO’s you see, which will really create very beautiful institutions for people who have nothing, they are starving, they are under trouble, they are under great ordeals. Only you can do it because, coming to Sahaja Yoga, you have dropped out your greed, you have dropped out your lust, it is finished, now you are so free and so independent.” -H.H Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi; Cabella Ligure, Italy; June 9,1996
