The founders were lucky to have some of the Great Masters as inspiration and mentors in this journey – the name, “Samanvaya” (meaning Harmony in Sanskrit) comes from a powerful visionary lecture by the former President of the Ramakrishna Mission, late, Swami Ranganathanandaji. The bo-leaf as our logo, comes from an actual leaf, given during the initiation into the Precepts given to our co-founder, Ramasubramanian, by the renowned Zen Buddhist teacher, late They Thich Nhat Hanh. Our work is inspired and shaped by the framework and ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, about whom the founders had their initial education with the late Gandhian Historian, Sri. Dharampal.
