Tripura Foundation's first ever Ambassadors of HoPE Trip to India in February 2014 was such a most wonderful experience that we decided we had to organise a follow-up Ambassadors of HoPE Trip as soon as possible, hence May 2014!
This time, we are heading to Rameshwaram, Dr Pillai (Babaji)'s birthplace, to visit the new HoPE Centers there and to spread love, joy and happiness to the children at the HoPE Centers and to show them that people care for them
Everyone is invited to be a part of this blessed trip, and to learn more, see below:
What is the Ambassadors of HoPE Trip to India all about?
On the trip, you will have the opportunity to learn and see for yourself how Tripura Foundation's HoPE Centers and their other initiatives such as the HoPE for the Elderly programs are changing the lives of thousands of children and elderly on a day by day basis.
We will take you to visit both just-starting-out and current HoPE Centers and you will be able to see for yourself how in just a short time, through Babaji's Phonemic Intelligence techniques, the poor children who start out at each HoPE Center as shy and lagging behind in their studies, become model students performing at the top of their class.
Why are we visiting Rameshwaram?
In honour of Babaji's birthday in Feb 2014, Tripura Foundation (with generous sponsorship from Babaji's global students) raised funds to set up with 5 HoPE Centers on Rameshwaram, the island where Babaji was born.
Rameshwaram is a fishing community and many of the men population have been killed by neighbouring countries while out fishing in international waters.
As a result, many of the women on Rameshwaram are widows and the children there orphans. Many of the children are also educationally backward and nutritionally starving.
To help the people of Rameshwaram, by May 2014, Tripura Foundation is working hard to open 5 more centers on Rameshwaram, taking the total number of HoPE Centers to 10 HoPE Centers on Rameshwaram.
We will therefore be journeying to Rameshwaram to:
(1) spread more love and compassion to the children of the HoPE Centers.
(2) share with them about our home countries
(3) teach the Rameshwaram HoPE Center children simple things such as proper hygiene habits
Our Ambassadors of HoPE will also distribute HoPE Center gift packs.
Here are some photos from our recent Ambassador of HoPE Trip in Feb 2014:

(which is one of the items in each HoPE Gift Pack)
Spreading love and compassion
Distributing HoPE Gift Packs to HoPE Center children
Our Ambassadors planting trees to benefit the HoPE Center community
As an Ambassador of HoPE, you will:
(i) visit several HoPE Centers to see for yourself how the destinies of poor children are being dramatically changed. Thanks to Babaji's simple but powerful Phonemic Intelligence enhancing techniques, such children no longer have to embrace their destinies as road sweepers, cooks, cleaners and attendants. Instead, HoPE Center children have now the courage and confidence to aspire to be doctors, engineers and beneficial members of society
(ii) serve as an inspiration and beacon of hope to the HoPE Center children you will be meeting. We are inviting you to introduce these children to new cultures and to the world beyond their rural village by sharing with them about your home country and what you do there.
(iii) help in the distribution of meals to the HoPE Center children. You will also be distributing HoPE Gift Packs generously sponsored by Tripura Foundation's worldwide donors.
(iv) make a difference in the communities around the HoPE Center by planting highly nutritious Moringa trees near the HoPE Center. The Moringa Plant is an important source of nutritious food and sustenance for the children.
(v) help save a life of another human being by distributing meals to the elderly, aged and handicapped under Tripura Foundation's HoPE for the Elderly program. Such souls would otherwise starve because they have no other means to obtain food as they are elderly and infirmed.
(vi) be a proxy of love and compassion for Tripura Foundation's donors by handing out on their behalf blankets/clothes/essential food supplies and person hygiene items (sponsored by such donors) to the elderly, aged and handicapped under Tripura Foundation's HoPE For the Elderly Program.
The Spiritual Significance of Rameshwaram
In case you didn't know, Rameshwaram is also one of the most powerful spots on earth to remove your most stubborn karmic sins.
During Babaji's Millionaire Yoga retreat a few weeks ago, Babaji spoke about the power of Rameshwaram and said that even if someone had committed the ultimate sin of killing, he/she could attain absolution at Rameshwaram by bathing in the Rameshwaram sea + 22 wells of Rameshwaram.
(To learn more about the power of Rameshwaram, you can watch the video we prepared last year when we took people to Rameshwaram for an ultimate karma busting powerspot trip:
As a gift for all Ambassadors who undertake the commitment* (see below) to help Rameshwaram's HoPE Center children, with Babaji's grace, Tripura Foundation will give you the ultimate karma busting blessing by sponsoring your Rameshwaram sea bath + bath at the 22 sacred sin dissolving wells.
Besides your ultimate karma busting purification, we will take you to visit the samadhi shrine of Father of Yoga Patanjali where you can meditate in His divine presence and transcend to deeper levels of consciousness.
We will also take you to see Goddess Rakashi Amman, who is the Goddess for manifesting.
How does the Ambassadors of HoPE Trip to Rameshwaram Work?
The Ambassadors of HoPE Trip is open to anyone.
To be a part of the trip, each Ambassador is asked to make a minimum sponsorship of US$600 towards Tripura Foundation's HoPE Gift Packs i.e. your donation of US$600 will bless 60 HoPE Center children each with a HoPE Center Gift pack.
Your other costs
(i) your return flight to India.
**If you are flying from Singapore, the promotional cost of the return airflight to Trichy is currently S$300!
You can book your flight once I confirm your space on the trip
ii) your accommodations
Once again, Babaji's India ashram has worked out a favourable rate for our group and has already reserved a number of rooms for both nights of the trip at hotels in Trichy & Rameshwaram .
Each room is based on double occupancy and cost 3600 Indian rupees (S$75 / US$60) per room. That means that like before, if you are sharing the room with someone, each person’s cost is half at about S$37/US$30 per night.)
