Santhigiri Ashram works towards fulfilling Navajyothi Sri Karunakara Guru’s vision of a revitalized life involving spiritual, social, economic and cultural elements. His vision emphasided on secular spirituality
Navajyothi Sree Karunakara Guru (born 1927, died 1999) was from Chandiroor, Alleppey district, Kerala. His teachings followed the theme of a global spiritual and cultural renaissance in harmony with material progress. He focused on the aspect of the soul that carries karmic merits and impurities that result in success or failure in life.
With the above vision and process, the ashram functions as a training center; people can either stay at or visit the ashram and attend services and assimilate in the teachings of the Guru by doing karma – correct actions.
