The ‘Vedic Care Charity’ ~ An Oasis of Love

All ‘VCC’ events are to assist the fundraising of our global endeavors and model facility. Please see our short promo-video here. Further details on our Model facility here.

The VCC is a global organization [501(c)3 Charity] for providing ecumenical care through a network of member Eco-villages, temples and farms; giving all those who seek enlightenment and a healthy life style, spiritual, medical and educational services; a world-wide oasis of love.

We welcome all spiritual seekers, in need or not, to come, associate, live and be treated in an enlivening and nourishing atmosphere; and when the time comes, receive God conscious hospice care for a glorious transition from this life.
