Peace and Harmony for Afghanistan

$22,724 of $27,000 goal

Raised by 68 people in 73 months



Thank you all so much for your support these past two years!  Due to your love and support, the future for Afghanistan is starting to look so bright.  

With your support, I completed the TM teacher training course in February 2014 to become the first ever Afghan TM Teacher.   Immediately after the course, I moved to New York City to teach.  I have since taught 300 people!

I am using this same GoFundMe page to raise $15,000 to bring TM to Afghanistan.  ($12,000TTC + $15,000 = $27,000)

This past July, I celebrated 10 years of practicing TM.  The technique has been invaluable to me.

As you know,  one of my long-term goals is to teach TM to people in Afghanistan, particularly women. TM has not yet been taught within the borders of Afghanistan.  I know that the technique will be life transforming to the many many people suffering from deep trauma in Afghanistan.  I would like to contribute to the healing of my people. 

It is my sincere desire and intention to go to Afghanistan summer of 2016.  Before going there, we would like to employ a year's worth of peace-creating yagyas to soften the atmosphere so that it will be easier to bring TM.

If you feel inspired to, please donate any amount. All donations are deeply appreciated.

If you can become a monthly donor, that would be even better!

Thank you for supporting me and thank you for supporting Afghanistan.

Hello Everyone!

Due to a glitch, we weren't able to get the November 15th peace Yagya for Afghanistan off the ground, but there is yet another Yagya in November beginning on November 28th! We will definitely be a part of that Yagya. There is still time to donate.

The best way to donate is directly through the Yagya website (choose Afghanistan as the Alternate country and send me a message that you have donated so that I can add you to my list): https://donate.vedicpandits.org/donate/donations.php?site=international

The reason why this is best is because GoFundMe takes an 8% fee.

Consider becoming a monthly donor! Currently we have 13 monthly donors and our goal is to get to 20 by the end of the year. Even a monthly donation of $10 or $20 is powerful.

Thank you so much to everyone's for making this happen.

And Happy Thanksgiving!

Love and Light,
Mariam <3

Thanks to the 17 donors who have donated so far to the November Peace and Harmony Yagya for Afghanistan. Today is Mahalakshmi and I'm hoping to raise the remaining $222! The Yagya will start on the 15th and go until the 25th.

Love and light,
Mariam

We weren't able to raise enough funds for the first October Yagya (which ran from Sept 30-Oct 10), BUT there is a second October Yagya from Oct 14 - Oct 24 and this one coincides with the 9 days of Mother Divine, so it'll be very auspicious. :) We need to raise $200 more in order to have enough funds for this Yagya. I hope you'll consider becoming a monthly donor. The best way to donate is directly through the Yagya website by choosing AFGHANISTAN as the "Alternate Country": https://donate.vedicpandits.org/donate/donations.php?site=international
OR through GoFundMe OR through PayPal.

Thank you so much for your support!

And if you haven't donated to a Yagya yet, please consider doing so. The October Yagya should a particularly powerful Yagya. You'll enjoy better programs and more support of nature.

Yesterday was the last day of the September yagya. Thank you so much for everyone who participated!

There's a little twist with the October yagya, it starts on September 30th and goes until October 10th! So that means it starts in two days!! We have about $1000 raised, so $250 to go.

The best way to contribute is via this link: https://donate.vedicpandits.org/donate/donations.php?site=international

Remember to choose "Afghanistan" as the alternate country.

Every contribution, big or small, is valuable. And you will benefit as much as Afghanistan.
