How Can You Donate to Help an Inmate?
First, we would like to explain the two main ways we like to handle the "donations" that we give to the inmates that are currently locked up in a California State or Out-Of-State Prison.
The first way is that an inmate from within the prison completes a simple application and requests a simple catalog of our items. From the application that they return, we are able to determine their ability to pay or if they are indigent, which is the case when they cannot afford to pay. And also we determine how we can help encourage their spirituality, which is the foundation for turning the time they do into a time well spent, learning how to meditate and funnel their time into positive productivity. They will then get an account number and depending on the work they do at the facility
Third Party Donations
This is when people on the outside donate their money and time to help these inmates. They can look at the catalog online or request for a catalog to be sent to a certain inmate. Together, we can work out a way for the inmate to get all the things he needs to do the things he needs to become productive.
Our Donation Items
We work with several California Department of Corrections authorized Vendors that are allowed to ship directly to the inmates inside the prisons. If you are interested in any of these items, please mark the item numbers and then go to the donation form to finish filling out an order.
CDs and DVDs- Mood and Instruction
Featuring dozens of CDs and DVDs, our collection includes a wide variety of musical genres and instructional resources. You're sure to find music to help yourself drift into a serene state for your ritual magic, alter the mood and atmosphere within your home and sacred space, and instructional resources that will tutor you in everything from sacred geometry to yoga. Feel free to dive in, explore new horizons, and open your mind.
First is the Item Number, the CD Cover, and then the Artist Name who created it.

HINDU MONKS WORKING ON BUILDING A GROUP MANDALA
Hindu Meditation Packages
These packages are put together specifically for the Hindus that are trapped in prison doing time. We have put together by hand very special arts and crafts from unopened packages. These have been individually blessed by the hands of devotees of AMMA, the Hugging Saint and latest Mother incarnation of the Hindu belief system via seva, or karmic yoga. ALL ITEMS HAVE BEEN INSPECTED FOR QUALITY AND QUANTITY.
PACKAGE 1012 - THE ART OF THE MANDALA
MANDALAS are sacred pieces of art that are holy in many religions and spiritual belief systems throughout history. They are basically a form of meditation where the person who creates the image does not require any artistic skill, but only the power of prayer and a strong sense of soul searching. A large circle is drawn in the center, and inside, the person becomes an artist. Whatever he puts inside the circular image becomes an expression of his spiritual side. We provide the paper, colored pens, highlighters, and pencils, so that the inmate can receive all the tools he needs to sit and meditate on the image before him. Some MANDALAS take days, weeks, or months to finish. In some places in the world, monks use various beads to create the circular image of very intricate patterns inside, working for days or months, and in the end, just wipe the beads clear into thin air. The purpose isn't the art itself, but the personal expression for the individual who does it. Some examples are below.
The Sacred Art of the MANDALA
If you order this package, the inmate will get a large sheet of paper that he can tear into several smaller pieces, or he could choose to use the entire paper to listen to meditative music, which we will include for the inmate to listen to for inspiration, along with an inspirational yearly calendar with several spiritual messages and images. Along with this will be a print out along with samples of how to draw spiritual Mandalas and use them to express the spiritual side of himself inside of it.
