We are asking for your cooperation in helping spread the news about our cause. Please forward this message to your friends, other lists, etc. All help in spreading the word and locating donations and celebrities is most appreciated!!

The hospital is named in honor of Shri Babaji who was so concerned about the living conditions of the Kumaon people that He instructed his devotees to build a comprehensive health care center for them. Shri Babaji is acknowledged as the Shiva Mahavatar Babaji described by Paramahansa Yogananda in Autobiography of a Yogi.

In the Hindu tradition, a Mahavatar is a human manifestation of the Divine who can materialise a body at will. The hospital serves the Kumaon region (in the foothills of the Himalayas) of India. The Kumaon people are extremely poor, and they suffer from a range of diseases that could be easily cured if adequate medical facilities were available. We started with seven health care professionals working on the side of a mountain in October of 1995. Offering the only medical attention in an area with a projected population of 1 million inhabitants has proved to be quite an undertaking. says Ellen Levand , President of the American Haidakhan Samaj.,
