Malhotra Dharma Beej Endowment

Seed The World (STW) established an endowment with Vivekananda Kendra (www.vivekanandakendra.org) in the year 2013  to encourage pro Hindu writing to clear the gross misunderstandings about our traditions. For a long time now people out side the Hindu traditions have been trying to give interpretations that are made up according to a non Hindu mindset. Malhotra Dharma Beej Endowment hopes to begin a process by which Hindus themselves will write about themselves. Our 1st attempt is a News Letter that goes to several thousand students and rural and tribal homes. We hope to involve ourselves with other writing projects in the future.

Other Projects

Adopting a Village
Seed the World is making a difference in the lives of over one hundred children and their families in a village in Punjab, India. The foundation adopted the village in March 2000, augmenting the children’s schoolwork with tutoring and educational programs. Recognizing that many other factors impact a child’s ability to learn, Seed the World reached out to the entire village to help enhance overall living conditions. With funding from Seed the World, villagers constructed public restrooms, drilled new wells to improve water quality and planted medicinal trees to help enhance health conditions.
 
Preserving Culture
Seed the World is helping to preserve Indian culture through financial help for artists who are helping maintain classical arts of ancient India.
1. Held a Sitar performance by a professor of music in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the United States.
2. Provided financial assistance to a renowned artist of the ODISSI Temple dance form. The seed money enabled this artist to attend a dance workshop here in the U.S. and also obtain a $35,000 grant to produce and perform next year here in the U.S. again. Nrittiyagram, of which she is part, has an outreach program to bring Indian dance forms to village children free of charge.
