Vaidya Mishra’s "new" Prana Center

$15,219 of $71,108 goal

Raised by 117 people in 25 months
Our beloved Vaidya Mishra left us on April 13, 2017. Since then, there's been an inpouring of love from coast to coast, and the whole world, to share in the grief, but also in an effort to join forces so as to keep all things SVA going strong into the future. Now, more than ever, we need his beautiful and powerful legacy of SVAyurveda to stay and keep going strong. At the time of his passing, the Prana Center was in the middle of a big move. Efforts were halted, but I have promised to keep this move and his projects going. Vaidya wanted to consolidate his separate locations for packaging, shipping and fulfillment, and offices, and merge all into one large warehouse building that will be multi-purposed.

To both honor and continue Vaidy’s lineage, I have the goal of making this new Prana Center a gathering place for all things SVAyurveda - just like he intended it. This is where you will be able to drop by to pick up his exquisite formulations as well as have consultations with SVAyurveda doctors, get SVAyurveda treatments, shop for products, take classes, and hold gatherings. We have big plans to bring people in and grow our community.

In the Ramayana, Lord Ram's devoted and obeisant brother, Bharata, promised Lord Ram to safeguard his kingdom during the 14 years of imposed exile. That loving duty now befalls all of us. Through love for his teachings and his unique formulations, to continue making the knowledge and the products available now and for the distant future.

We will be announcing many undertakings in the future, however, for now, we have chosen this medium to raise immediate funds.

To keep the Prana Center running in Vaidya's absence, and for immediate purposes, the Prana Center needs funding to further build out the warehouse with walls, partitions, shelving, carpets, seating, wall coverings, and more to make this a warm, comfortable and usable space.

That’s why we’ve created this page, to help fulfill Vaidya’s dream of having the Prana Center be a fully operable, welcoming, space for sharing and spreading the knowledge of SVAyurveda.

Some of the work had already started, but we now need your help in making sure the Prana Center will open its doors to a beautiful functional interior! With everything that Vaidya Mishra has given to us so generously over the years, this is one way that we can give back - a little bit. Everyone who donates will be invited to the grand opening celebration (date to be determined).

Thank you for your support of The Prana Center, SVAyurveda, and Vaidya's legacy.

This Memorial Day Weekend, Vaidya's Prana Center will be fully moved out of its decade-old location. Here are some images of our move in progress. The New Prana Center will have a walk-in shop where you can pick up your products directly by shopping through the isles. The fundraiser that was initiated on will help to subsidize the cost of set up by providing funds that will be lacking due to Vaidya's unexpected departure. Any funds you donate will go towards setting up the new Center. To the extent that we receive all of the anticipated funds, the center will be structured as planned. If we receive less funds, the center will be set up as much as possible.
The Prana Center will continue to provide services and products and courses in the future as before. It is your center for all things SVA. Its continued existence depends on your generous support at this transitional point in time.
Please, help us with the by circulating the web link as far and wide as possible. If you have already donated, we thank you wholeheartedly, if you have not done so yet, we kindly ask you to do so.

This is the "raw" space for Vaidya's new Prana Center.

February 3, 2017, shortly after signing the lease, and before any construction was initiated.

After signing the lease, Vaidya and I did a puja there, chanting purifying verses for new beginnings.

This new Prana Center is what Vaidya had been working hard for over the past many many years. It was his dream space. It is my duty, as his devotee and wife, as well as all of ours as SVA followers, experts, lovers, to keep his dream going strong.

Vaidya and I had already initiated construction work in February and started setting up the space to be used for all the needs of SVA. Building sterile lab space for his ongoing (R&D) research and development,

in addition to plans for a customer care center for services and order fulfillments. There is also meant to be a space for courses, lecture, SVA community events, that can hold up to 75 people.

All your donations will go into continuing and completing the building and set up of this new space. We will have a grand inauguration when work is completed. But it all depends on you. We will only be able to build and complete to the extent that we can raise the remaining needed funds.

If you already donated, we THANK YOU wholeheartedly. If you have not donated yet, please do so - every dollar we receive counts. If you prefer to send a check, you may make it out to Chandi LLC and mail it to 11856 Balboa Blvd #333, Granada Hills, CA 91344.
If you know of others who would be interested in helping us build Vaidya's dream SVA Center, please forward this email or the donation link.

I look forward to organizing many upcoming events, and offering full SVA services at the new Prana Center. Together, we can do it.
Thank you, once more, for your support of The Prana Center, SVAyurveda, and Vaidya's legacy.
