(A home for less privileged Girls)

Janaka Janani Kripa Gurukulam Trust is a spiritually-oriented organisation which has been functioning at Vattiyoorkavu, Thiruvananthapuram since 2008. It was started on the instructions of Swami Dayananda Saraswati, the well known Vedanta teacher and founder of Arsha Vidya Gurukulams. Registered with the Govt. of Kerala, the Trust is now managed by Swami Tattvarupananda Saraswati, a disciple of Swami Dayananda Saraswati. The primary aim of the Trust is to take care of children of marginalised sections of society and provide them a spiritually- oriented formal education, free accommodation, food and all other facilities so that they grow up as a responsible citizen of the country. The Gurukulam for Boys under the name “Janaka Janani Kripa Gurukulam” has been functioning at Vattiyoorkavu, Thiruvananthapuram since 2006.1

The generous help and unstinted support the public has given to the Boys Gurukulam prompted the Trust to start a Gurukulam for Girls on similar lines. Towards this end, the Trust purchased a 40 cent plot in Pallippuram Village of Paralam Grama Panchayat in Thrissur. Thanks to the liberal help of our patrons and well wishers, “Janaka Janani Kripa Gurukulam Balika Sadanam” with all provisions and facilities for accommodating about 40 Girls has come up in a rural, scenic setting. The beautiful eco-friendly two storyed building of the Gurukulam has “Shanti Tattva” as its main architectural style.

The priority for admission here is for girls from tribal areas and economically backward families. The Balika Sadanam, besides providing its inmates free accommodation, food and clothing, meet all their educational and incidental expenses. They will also be groomed for a happy, meaningful life in the modern world, but still attuned to the traditional values of Indian life-its Dharma, Dhyana and Yoga.

The Balika Sadanam is the first step, of a vast multi dimensional project named “Shanti Gramam” encompassing many varied areas related to spiritually-oriented education, employment, training in skills and trades, health care and sanitation, conservation of natural environment etc. The aim of this dream project is to groom trained, dedicated citizens who are play an effective, constructive role in the all-round advancement of society. We are confident that this herculean task will be accomplished in due course. For we are emboldened by the lessons of history that epic enterprises surmount all obstacles and triumph in the end.

The Trust is happy to announce that the construction of “Janaka Janani Kripa Gurukulam Balika Sadaram” has been successfully completed and Balika Sadanam inaugurated by Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha of Narayanashrama Tapovanam, Veginissery, Thrissur on 19th January 2017. We humbly pray that you continue to shower your blessings on this noble enterprise.

“ We opened the Girls Gurukulam in Thrissur on 19th January 2017. Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha of Narayanashrama Tapovanam Inaugurated the building. Gurukulam will be functioning from 2017 May onwards.
