The Conservation, Creation, and Compassionate Harvest of the Sacred Lotus is our primary goal and mission - a mission of Compassion and Peace to heal Humanity. To significantly reverse the un-compassionate living path that we are currently on. And in so doing we will heal the planet EARTH.
This mission began in the October of 2001.
It is sixteen years since this mission began. Thus far the following have been accomplished through the work of Thayanithi Kulenthran:
- A documentary on the Lotus called the “Flower of the Gods” was initiated by Thayanithi’s daughter Romila Kulenthran. It included conversations between mother and daughter. It involved travel and filming, covering thus far 6 Asian countries. It was done in partnership with Thayanithi between 2011-2012. Further work on the documentary is however on hold due to time and funding constraints.
