Service to Humanity: The Dharm Shala at 103

Today, the Dharm Shala Home of Benevolence celebrates its 103rd anniversary and the founder’s granddaughters say it continues to serve those in need.

Kella and Pamela Ramsaroop continue the tradition of their father Hari Saran Ramsaroop Maharaj, who passed away in 2013. He had taken over the mantle from his father, Pandit Ramsaroop, who opened the house in 1921 with his own money.

“The eleven Dharm Shala buildings are all dedicated exclusively and free of charge to humanitarian charity,” the two sisters said in a short statement marking the anniversary.
