Let's all join hands!

Dear friends of Swami Vishwananda

As you know, we have reached a crucial phase in the development of Swami’s spiritual centre
“Shree Peetha Nilaya” in Springen, Germany. The authorities have told us, that we need to have
specific building standards in place in order to hold events and accommodate guests. We are
unable to hold events in the centre until the authorities give us the “green light” to proceed.

In order to negotiate an opening of the center and to obtain a full or partial permit from the
authorities, we need funding. The minimum amount needed to proceed with the works and
to have a “tool” to negotiate with the authorities is 500'000 Euros.
This amount we need to
raise by the 31st July 2010.
However for us to be able to officially open part of the centre:
the main lobby, kitchen, the building in which the temple and chapel are situated and the
guest rooms above these, we project a cost of 3 Million Euros.

Our Fundraising comprises of 1. Donations 2. Loans and 3. Investments. Please see the
website where we regularly update the amount that has been
raised so far. As you will be able to see from the enclosed presentation, a lot of work, energy
and funds have been put into this project by Swami’s international family of friends. We
have already achieved a lot to be able to get where we are with Swami and the centre. It
would be very sad if we had to stop with work on the centre and couldn’t provide Swami the
basis for his work in Europe. For you to better understand our current situation we enclose
some history of this project. Please can you share this information with friends, family and
people who are open to hear about Swami’s mission. Thank you very much for taking the
time to read this letter and its attachments!

Thank you for all your support,
Anashuya, Paartha & Kuru on behalf of all Residents
