How Can I Contribute?

We welcome contribution of friends, well-wishers, devotees and disciples to expand awareness of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother in the twin-cities. Here are a few ways you can help.

Become a Member of Sri Aurobindo Society:

Sri Aurobindo Society, as a national organization, offers membership of varying duration. When you become a member you will receive a monthly magazine from Puducherry with messages and writings of Mother and Sri Aurobindo. You will also become a part of the community of seekers. This would be a good first step in engaging with and contributing to Sri Aurobindo Society. We have membership forms at our center in Musheerabad. You can fillup the form and pay the manager.

Alternately, you can visit: http://www.aurosociety.org/participate/membership.aspx

Contribute As a Volunteer At Center (Or From Home):

Participating in Darshan Days is a good first step. February 21st, April 24th, August 15th and November 24th are special days when we have meditation, sat-sang, card distribution, etc. We need volunteers on these days to help with the arrangement.

There are several small projects/activities which need volunteers who can take ownership and execute them. E.g. Women’s Wing, Library cataloguing, organizing archives, website updates, entering visitor-data into computers, preparing our accounts,  etc. More than experience, we are looking for people who wish to sincerely offer their time to the Mother. There are projects that you can contribute to from home as well. Reach out to us for further discussion.

Start a Study Circle:

We are looking for devotees who are interested in starting a study circle in their areas. We presently have study-circles in Sanatnagar, DD Colony, Gachibowli and Vidya nagar.  We are encouraging devotees to start study-circles in Tirumalgherry, Uppal, Vanasthali Puram, Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills.  One important requirement is that the study circle and the ambience should be only about Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.  Details of activities of a study circle will be provided if you can write to us.

Contribute Financially:

Musheerabad center is looking for financial contributions that can help in several ways.

Some devotees offer to support financially Prasad distribution on Darshan Days. Similarly some offer to sponsor flower purchases. Usually these amount to Rs.10,000 each on Darshan days (exact amount varies).

At Musheerabad we are planning a serious renovation of the premises. Plans are being worked out to upgrade the meditation room, the sales section, library and housing areas. The budget is working out to be over 30 lakhs. Every single contribution – small and big  – goes a long way in helping us.

You can wire transfer the amount to our bank account. Details are as follows :

Account name : Aurobindo Society

Account Number:0995010000019

Bank: United Bank Of India

IFSC:UTBI0BKP819  (UTBI-zero-BKP-819)

Branch: Bholakpur, Hyderabad

All contributions to Sri Aurobindo Society are tax exempt (80-G). A receipt can be given to you at the Musheerabad center, when you donate there. If you donate online, please send us the details (net-banking screenshot is ideal) and we can scan and send you the 80-G receipt.

Contribution In Kind:

We accept, occasionally, contribution in kind. There are times books are offered, but at the moment we are very selective about books, furniture, etc. as we are planning renovation and are also short of space.

Please write to sashyderabad@aurosociety.org or call the Secretary, Srinivas if you wish to contribute to Sri Aurobindo Society, Musheerabad at 98499-86613.
