Festival of Compassion
Festival of Compassion 2
The first 'Festival of Compassion' started on Saturday June 23rd, at the Seattle's Westlake Plaza. Second festival is scheduled on Saturday September 29th, 2018, at the Westlake Plaza. This event is inspired by the rising homelessness in the Seattle area. The goal of the festival is to showcase practical ways of engaging humans on land and partake in the bounty that results. Based on the pilot for food truck and the farm in Redmond we developed recently, this seems like a practical and viable approach to reducing homelessness in the greater Seattle area. We hope you can come and contribute to this developing vision towards a humane society starting with the City of Seattle.

Our Proposal:

  • Reinvigorate the spirit of pioneers in the West Coast
  • Train homeless to build functional cottages, live on the land, grow basic crops and become productive again
  • Act according to their physical and emotional capability
  • Improve emotional well - being
  • Education and rebuilding Artistic thoughts on the farm

Suggested Action Plan:

  • State/City provides Northwest SHARE with free land in Auburn/Kent/BlackDiamond Area
  • Act on City of Seattle revenue plan to obtain funds for resolving Homelessness
  • Add NWShare to list of organizations for funding to comb homelessness
  • Grow our pilot of low cost solution to homelessness by adding more food trucks
  • Seek employee matching funds from Microsoft, Boeing, Google, etc. for ongoing maintenance

Our approach:

  • Changing lives through love and compassion
  • Focusing on strengths and working with weaknesses
  • Engagement of mind (education, skill building) and body (Food, shelter, clothing, natural medicine)
  • Instill confidence through mentorship
  • Victims of situation - individual plans
  • Volunteers from: doctors, music, arts, spiritual counselors
  • Once stable and productive, marriages and grow families on farm
  • Vegetarian food only for health reasons
  • Regulated lifestyle - early rising, regulated eating, meditation, learning and sharing

Cow Protection
Cow Protection

The cow is considered one of our mothers, as she gives us her milk and thus nutures our health and well being. Just as no civilized person would injure or kill their mother, the Vedas teach that to take milk from the cow and then kill her is the same as killing one's mother. Similarly, the bull is considered like the father because the bull traditionally helps in the tilling of the fields, and thus is to be respected.

We believe protecting cows is a most important component of protecting the earth. According to the ancient Vedic texts the cow is the representative of Mother Earth. And, when the cow and the bull are mistreated, Mother Earth withdraws her bounty.

To protect cow is to protect entire civilization be part of Goloka Cow Farm Expansion. Based on success of the Goloka farm in Redmond, we are emarking on an expansion in Auburn (Black Diamond area) which is situated in the lush Green River valley away from hustle and bustle of city life. At Goloka farm we keep cows and bulls for their precious dung and urine used for composting. We have green house heated by wood buring stive sprouting seeds which we transplant in our garden to produce organic vegetables.
