Our Mission

Guided by ancient wisdom in Hindu and global philosophies and under the aegis of Poojya Sukhbodhananda, the mission of the Prasanna Trust is to work towards the betterment of the poor and marginalized sections of our society.

The Prasanna Trust is a registered public charitable trust founded by Poojya Sukhabodhananda in 1982. The Prasanna Trust works to bridge the gap between the privileged and the poor and encourages passionate people to help those who are suffering and needy. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs. The honorarium received from various discourses and Corporate management workshops by Swamiji goes in paying the for the charitable work. Like minded individuals, corporate citizens, local institutions also come forward to do their bit.

OUR FOUNDER

Poojya Sukhabodhananda

Poojya Sukhabodhananda (pronounced as Puj-ya Sukh-bodha-anand ) is an Indian monk who has been working relentlessly on sharing the wisdom of the ancient Vedas. He believes in spreading joy and moving people from darkness towards the light. Through his simple teachings and a problem solving approach, he has touched millions of lives across the globe.

His unique ability to deconstruct the most critical challenges facing us as individuals and corporates and to offer holistic solutions, makes him one of the most sought after “Corporate Gurus”. His talks are a careful blend of ancient wisdom and modern thoughts that provides us the tools for self-management and growth. His life’s goal is to help people realize the potential of their heart, mind and soul.

Advertisement is what fools us and tells us which luxuries we can’t do without. Love tells us the divine necessities we need to address at the time of difficulties. Prayer without service is not prayer and service without prayer is not service.
