All beings are bound together in a beautiful chain of interdependence. None of us are isolated links. Our mutual love rises up like a Song of Universal Brotherhood. SOLACE is just one of its channels.
We are inspired by the Vision of an Egalitarian Community that transcends differences with empathy & compassion for fellow beings. SOLACE is a platform where similarly inspired people gather.
There is no greater agony or helplessness than that of the parents of a chronically ailing child. Unless rooted firmly in the values of Love, Compassion & Equality, no vision, mission, philosophy or ideology holds any meaning.
We respond to pain by positioning ourselves as insiders in the situation, not outsiders. We share equally the pain of the situation to find positive & constructive solutions.
We offer our shoulders & chests to lean upon and unburden their hearts. Walk with us. We need your Support, Love & Blessing.
"When our sense of isolation ends and our life mingles with every other life, we rise beyond victories and failures..." (Anand, well-known Malayalam writer) So, dear friend... Won't you join us in this?"
