nurturing home environment within the context of a community environment. The
village is a holistic design and incorporates much more than just homes, there
is a temple, ashram, walking trails, international school, vocational training
center, store, hospital and research center, Naturopathic center and Spa,
Ayurvedic center, plant nursery, cow shelter and dairy,
playground, guest homes, dining hall, and
