At Samanvaya, we believe truth, simple and small initiatives are shaping actions for a new, better world. As consultants in the social sector for over 22 years, we believe in inclusive, eco-friendly, localized and community driven initiatives that can shape a different action. We also believe that these actions will stem from people who work out of compassion, with a sense of inter-being and love towards nature and all living and non-living things.
Our Consulting Services have always been held out as an offering to every social cause that we have been able to relate to and have been thankful to be part of. We believe in each one of these ventures and continue to support them in whatever manner possible beyond contractual obligations.
The founders were lucky to have some of the Great Masters as mentors and inspiration in this journey – the name, “Samanvaya” (meaning Harmony in Sanskrit) comes from a powerful visionary lecture by the former President of the Ramakrishna Mission, late, Swami Ranganathanandaji. The bo-leaf as our logo, comes from an actual leaf, given during the initiation into the Precepts given to our co-founder, Ramasubramanian, by the renowned Zen Buddhist teacher, They Thich Nhat Hanh. Our work is inspired and shaped by the framework and ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, about whom the founders had their initial education with the late Gandhian Historian, Sri. Dharampal.
