The Lakshmi Abundance Fund has been established to provide the financial resources for the Goloka Sanctuary Seed Communities. The Seed Communities are 50-Member Communities that are being researched, planned or created in areas where there is the most interest at this time, including Mexico, Finland, United States (2), Czech Republic, Costa Rica, Canada, India, and South Africa.
The Seed Communities
It is possible to move in to a Seed Community in three to six months. The development of a full one-thousand Member Community from a Seed Community will then take about three years. The full Community emerges in stages of 50 to 100 Members, following this general growth plan:
- Stage 1: A Community Administrator is selected to head-up the first stage. The CA enlists about 20 families who are interested in joining the Community. These initial Members then meet to decide on the ideal land for their Community, purchase that land and hire an architect to develop the 12-stage building plan. Infrastructure (roads, utilities, gardens) for the entire Community is created and the meditation dome and the housing for the people in the first stage, plus 25% more, is built. This process takes three to six months to complete and the first Members move in.
