Looking towards the future.
In 2002 the mines at Kolar goldfields were finally closed down, making many people who depended on these mines redundant. Kolar district has many Muslims, who mingle with Hindus and Christians to form a richly diverse community of many cultural traditions. It is hoped that an ashram community may help in bringing these different communities together in a common human task for creating a new society which lives in harmony with nature, and draws spiritual nourishment from a contemplative vision of the Divine Spirit that liberates all creatures.
