The Story

We invite you to share in the opportunity of supporting Baba Hari Dass at this stage of his life. Just as he gave us so much through out his life, we can now give back by supporting his care.

Due to a major neurological event that Babaji suffered in 2013, his daily care includes employing professionally trained caregivers who provide excellent attention to his physical needs -- with great kindness and respect. We are asking for support from our community members to pay for costs, which have significantly increased due to changes in employment regulations.

Your gift may be made via this site (YouCaring.com does not take any portion of your gift); alternatively, checks may be made out to Hari Dass and mailed directly to:
Babaji’s Care
445 Summit Road
Watsonville, CA 95076

A contribution of any amount is helpful. Please contact Sarada Diffenbaugh at [email protected] or 831-722-0814 with questions or to set up a special type of gift.

Please note that your donation is not tax deductible because it is directed to an individual for personal care and medical expenses.

The following question has been asked often, so it may be helpful here:
Why cannot funds be directed toward Babaji’s care from the Hanuman Fellowship or Sri Ram Foundation – from proceeds of the sales of Babaji’s books or other? Unfortunately, as nonprofit entities, Hanuman Fellowship and Sri Ram Foundation are legally not allowed to receive or disperse funds to support any single individual. Hence it remains to us as devotees and well-wishers to create the support for his care.

Thank you.
Namaste

Baba Hari Dass is a silent monk whose life of discipline, yoga, and love has inspired people around the world. Babaji, as he is affectionately called (Baba means "Father" and ji means "respected"), is first and foremost a master yogi, having practiced the disciplines of yoga from childhood. Although Babaji no longer makes public appearances, his lifelong example of peacefulness and service encourages regular practice of his teachings. His life expresses the potential for peace that lies within each of us as the result of spiritual discipline and devotion to helping others. He and his teachings inspired these institutions: Mount Madonna Center and Mount Madonna School in California, Salt Spring Centre and Salt Spring School in Canada, and Sri Ram Orphanage and Sri Ram Vidya Mandir in India.

In October, 2013 Babaji suffered a major neurological event that brought him to death’s door. Fortunately for his students and well-wishers around the world he survived and now lives in semi-seclusion at his home. Now, from his state of limited activity, he continues to exemplify one of the most profound teachings:
I am not the body
I am not the mind
I am the Self

The payment system has been changed, and thus we need to do some technical updating in order to get back into an "active" status. Please bear with us as this work is being done. We plan to be able to take payments again very soon. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support.

During the Winter season which emphasizes Gratitude, Love and Blessings, many generous supporters were inspired to give gifts so that Babaji's outstanding care can continue. In November, $3,708 off-line gifts were received. In December, $6,512 off-line gifts were received. Babaji is being sustained by the love, prayers and support of so many whose lives he has touched, and this makes all the difference. To each person who has shared in whatever way s/he could, Thank you! The words are brief, but the sentiment goes deeply. Every offering makes a difference.
