VISION

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

Mission

To create, conserve, and compassionately harvest Sacred Lotus ponds/lakes, and to educate about this mystical and sacred plant.

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.

Our current life path is largely not compassionate. This is evident in many aspects of our lives. It is vital to reverse this un-compassionate path of living.

“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.

It is also led by her span of life and living experiences during a thirty -nine 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 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 thirty-nine 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 Principal of her own small sole proprietor company.  The sole proprietor company of Thaya’s 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.
