A compassionate service opportunity.  Help donate towards an initiative through the Sao Paulo Kriya Yoga Ashram and One World Projects to help a tribe of indigenous people, known as the Guarani in Sao Paulo, Brazil. They have almost met their goal and a little help from our New York Kriya family this weekend would greatly help them along the way.  Anyone can donate so share the link with family and friends. To learn more about this project and to see a video put together by kriyavans of the Sao Paulo ashram, click on
