VISION

Being an Earth Carer in the 21st Century through living with compassion, gentleness and firmness, much quiet, and peace guided by the spiritual vibration field of the Sacred Lotus.

To get to this stage however, though that is quite a tall order in our current lifetime, there will inevitably be much rife and strife. As we undo and correct practices that we have been used to in the past - the latter 20th century.

Mission

  • To educate about this mystical and sacred plant, and of EARTH. This would include aspects of our current living that impact adversely upon EARTH, the other Life forms that She supports and Human Well Being.

  • To create, conserve, and compassionately harvest Sacred Lotus ponds/lakes

The idea emerged way back in 2001, three weeks after September 11. Thayanithi experienced a series of events connected directly to the Sacred Lotus.  It felt as if the cosmic world was reaching out to her with a vital message - to embrace the Sacred Lotus! Thaya could not ignore that cosmic call - it was profound, in the manner in which it presented itself. Hence Thaya embraced the Sacred Lotus, by personally beginning to cultivate it in her garden. It was the only logical thing to do. And as she did so, she was spiritually awakened. To the immense possibilities of a future compassionate humanity. As our current life path is largely un-compassionate.

At the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (Stockholm, Sweden, 1972 Sustainable Development and Sustainability, were promulgated as the way forward for Humanity. This was reiterated at the 1st Earth Summit in Rio de Janerio, twenty years later. Governments, Businesses, Non -governmental organisations, Institutions, Civil Society - all of them climbed on the bandwagon! Proclaiming Sustainable Development and Sustainability! The words sustainable development and sustainability were meant and intended to balance the economic, social and environmental aspects of development and life. But what did it really eventually bring about? A tendency to ultimately focus and prioritise economic development! Bringing with it a lot of chaos and degradations of our ecosystems followed by a significant loss in human well being! It was and is an un-compassionate living path. Why? Because a vital element was missing within the words sustainable development and sustainability - Our Human Heart! That which had the capacity to Love and Feel!

  • To create a wave of Earth Children

“The Sacred Lotus is symbolic of peace, tranquility and compassion. When we live surrounded constantly by the spiritual vibrations created by Sacred Lotus ponds/lakes and Lotus gardens, a deep consciousness evolves within and amongst us, healing and transforming us gradually into gentler and compassionate human beings, thus further evolving us spiritually.”

Undeniably, if the Earth supports life, providing us our real and vital needs and those of other living beings, the Earth must indeed have a soul.
— Thayanithi Kulenthran

Background

There is nothing more powerful than an idea when its time has come.

And if that idea emerged because of spiritual intervention and guidance, then indeed the power of that idea is tremendous.  DayAnidhi Earth – “Compassion for Earth”, with a Sanskrit word that carries with it powerful spiritual vibrations each time it is sounded, is that idea we refer to – the movement perhaps the world needs for the 21st century.

Spiritual experiences since 1994, and subsequently in her Sacred Lotus Garden Home, coupled with years of communion with the Soul of the Earth in both her parents and her Garden, since she was a 7 year old child, awoke Thayanithi Kulenthran to the idea of DayAnidhi Earth in 2006.

DayAnidhi Earth is also led by her span of life and living experiences during a forty-one year adult hood.  It is a life centred for the most part of her life, around home and garden and to the immediate and priority needs of the family - children, husband and elderly parents. DayAnidhi Earth is based on intuition and courage to live a life of relative simplicity and much quiet while engaged with the trials of modern life. It is a life that is kind to the Earth in creating small ecological footprints. It is a life of looking within.

Over the span of forty one adult years, Thayanithi lived differing roles. She was an upper secondary school teacher,  a homemaker, volunteer worker and home tuition teacher, a Research Assistant, an Environmental Scientist, Senior Environmental Consultant, Freelance Environmental Consultant, a post graduate student and finally Founder and Principal of the Social Enterprise DayAnidhi Earth. DayAnidhi Earth was set up primarily to serve as a platform to design, develop and implement Thaya’s ideas and would create a movement of “Compassion for the Earth” through being an Earth Carer.
