Welcome to the Vedic Care Charitable Trust


The Vedic Care Cooperative is a Global Initiative for the Well Being, Retirement and Hospice of Vaisnavas.

NY Times March 2016

It is an international members supported organization that is cooperating to facilitate retirement homes; wherein the inhabitants can offer:
Kirtan; Katha; classes; seminars; consulting: counseling; self subsistent farms and other creative projects.
Our retirement homes allow residents to spend their later years in like minded association, instead of being cared for in isolation, reacting to the symptoms of sickness alone. Staffed hospice facilities and Vedic transition support will be available through this international cooperative; based on love and trust. With a focus on preventative care, we can ease the pain and suffering together. Transcending political, divisive factions, we will simply welcome those in need, concentrating on compassionate care.
We welcome like minded member-organizations to join with us to share retirement and care resources.
For updates on the project’s progress, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Vimeo and www.VedicCare.org.

If you are interested please join us in researching and selecting areas to begin our first working models.

Every day another devotee or family members leaves our planet.
Vedic Care Cooperative’s mission resides in the fact that Bhakti yoga is for those with compassionate and
caring hearts. Not Jnana, or Karma yoga but one founded on ‘das anu das’.
This principle that Prabhupad gave us can save the world and can save us as well.
This idea of us not  being a welfare movement, is incorrect. Why do we share Prasadam, Kirtan, Shastra, etc. Is this not welfare? Is not food for life welfare?
Otherwise we could just keep everything to ourselves, but we share because, we do want to give this great philosophy to others, because we believe this ourselves, and we think that this can be a positive alternative to our material entanglements.Prabhupad cared for us. He saw the good in us. So we should care for each other .Yes, our philosophy says we water the root of the tree, and all the branches, limbs, and leaves will be fed.
But we are not stoic impersonalists, where philosophy is more important than devotion.
Already people are reacting to the symptoms of old age and death occurs sporadically and individually.
We are doing this anyway, so why not do this collectively, and first-class .
That is why we are continuing “the Vedic Care Project”
Let Radharani’s compassionate Bhava enter your hearts also.
Thank you very much
Gurudas

A Vaishnava dies to live, and while living spreads the holy name around.”

Dear Prabhus from all Sangas,

We are seeking ambassadors from your Sanga and geographical locations. The VCC (Vedic Care Cooperative) is an international, member supported, inter-Sanga, unaffiliated, independent organization and umbrella *Cooperative* association, for facilitating devotee retirement and care resources at all your various locations worldwide. We are seeking ambassadors in your area and your Sanga to help us identify needs and available resources and/or existing organizations whom we may aid and support in grant-writing, staffing, fundraising, and general ongoing support through our ‘Vaishnava specific’ designed barter system.

Srila Prabhupada taught us that together we are stronger, “A single twig can easily be broken, but many twigs bundled together become impossible to break.” He also begged us in his last days, “You will show your love for me by how you cooperate with each other.” We have therefore created a Cooperative to barter solutions and resources with each other for retirement and care communities and sustainable support for present and future generations.
Our efforts are all ecumenical and non-political and are therefore truly global and universal. You may begin reading about our diverse core team at www.VedicCare.org.
For these purposes we would like to invite you, or someone you know, to become one of our Ambassadors. Someone to simply represent the VCC project in your own particular sphere of influence in your area, or your Sanga. This is not a time consuming responsibility. Your contribution would be to casually invite others to take part and give what time, ideas, or resources they can toward all  of our success—when giving class or in casual conversation.
This way we can give back, by taking care of the Vaishnavas who gave so much to establish and set forward the culture of Krsna Consciousness—now and in future generations.

We thank you in advance.

Your servants,
PS. As an owner of your VCC Ambassador Credentials, we will find some way to reward your endorsement efforts as we develop—Cooperative means reciprocity.
**************************************************************************************
We have decided to commence sales of Gurudas’s collection of rare and often never before seen photos of his days interacting with Sri Prabhupada, the Beatles Band and George Harrison during the ‘Sixties and Seventies’ and also many world wide international scenery photos also taken during that time.
The Vedic Care online shop @ www.vediccare.org/shop
Proceeds from these sales will be used to promote and support the Vedic Care Cooperative Project. Each photo is a fine matted finish, signed ( 15×10 $135.00 ~ 24×16 $195 or 36×24 $295.00 ) inches – to remind us of that auspicious time when Sri Prabhupada and the Beatles were still with us and also to remind us of our ongoing internal support of this Vedic Care Charitable Trust endevours.
Thank you
Patita-Pāvana.
HariBol! Jai Radhe! Jai Govardhan!

  1. The “Vedic care cooperative,” is an international members supported organization, that is cooperating to facilitate retirement homes; wherein the inhabitants can offer
    kirtan; katha; classes; seminars; consulting: counseling; self subsistent farms; Health plans;
    and other creative projects.
    The inhabitants will be together instead of many being cared for isolated and struggling alone reacting to the symptoms of sickness, instead of preventative the care that we can ease together at our facilities.
    We will also having like mind association in the waning time here.
    Hospice facilities and Vedic transition support will be available with staff as well.

    We are a international cooperative based on love and trust. We will welcome those in need, so we transcend political, and divisive factions to concentrate compassionate endeavors.

    If you are interested join our international team.

    Presently we are research selecting and area to begin our first working model.

    Vedic Care cooperative,
    The fact that Bhakti yoga is for those with compassionate and caring hearts.
    Not Jnana, or Karma yoga but one founded on das anu das.
    This principle that Prabhupad gave us, can save the world, and can save us as well.
    This idea of us not being a welfare movement, is incorrect.
    Why do we share prasadam, kirtan, shastra, etc.
    is this not welfare?
    Is not food for life welfare?
    Otherwise we could just keep everything to ourselves, but we share because, we do want to give this great philosophy to others, because we believe this ourselves, and we think that this can be a positive alternative to the material entanglements.
    Again Prabhupad cared for me, he saw the good in us, so why do we not want to care for each other?
    He also loved his disciples, those with a proclivity for
    homosexuality.
    He said it is the sexual desire we have to eventually overcome.
    People that “Food for life” feed in war zones don’t care about our appearance, or philosophy.
    Prabhupad told me “art means full belly,” and then he explained no one will view this art if they are starving, and no one will take to spiritual life if they are starving and just surviving.
    Yes, our philosophy says we water, the root of the tree, and all the branches, limbs, and leaves, etc. will be fed.
    But we are not stoic impersonalists, where philosophy is more important than devotion.
    Already people are reacting to the symptoms of old age and death sporadically and individually.
    We are doing this anyway, so why not do this collectively, and first-class.
    That is why we are continuing “the Vedic care project”
    Let Radharani’s compassionate Bhava enter your hearts also.
    Thank you very much

  2. Why did Prabhupad come to visit me personally, when I was suffering from typhoid fever.

    He didn’t have to, as happiness or distress flow together like the changing seasons due to Krishna’s grace.

    Perhaps the typhoid fever was due to past karma, yet thanks Prabhupad inquired daily as to my illness and subsequent healing, which took 28 days, mostly not eating, yet he showed concern, and even asked other devotees to check my progress when he was someplace else someplace else.

    Since he cares, we have to care for each other.

    Why did Prabhupad invite Yamuna and Kausaliya into the car, when he saw them plodding along in the dust and heat of the road.
    He saw suffering and with great compassion did something about it.
    Now many devotees are getting older, with no one to care for them.
    Some devotees have formed a team to do something about the name these problems facing many devotees.

    We are called The Vedic Care Cooperative e.g vediccare.org

    If you care, view our site, become a member, and either give some time, laxmi, and suggestions etc.

    We as society have neglected total care.

    Big temples, mosques, churches are useless if they are filled with sick and anxious people.

    A society is judged by how it cares for it’s people.

    Let our society be a positive alternative to the mismanagement of the rest of the world, by taking care of each other.

    Thank you very much

    The Vedic Care cooperative team
