Story

In the Yogic culture, Sangha refers to a spiritual community and Mitra means friend. A Sanghamitra is one who is a friend to the spiritual community.

Isha Sanghamitra is a unique opportunity and commitment to become an integral part of Sadhgurus vision to create a more conscious humanity by offering at least one drop of spirituality to every human being on the planet.

Being a Sanghamitra involves making a recurring monthly donation for a period of your choice.

Every donation, however large or small, can make a difference. Please support us in whichever way you can.
