Dear well wishers,
I am pleased to share my selfless devotion for the welfare of less privileged people and for the protection of our environment.
Before I founded The Earth Saviours Foundation, I grew up inspired by my father who served as a Delhi Police Inspector. His tough, commando attitude helped shape my life and was one of the primary reasons that I began training in Taekwondo martial arts. After many years of grueling training, I reached the prestigious level of 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo. I was blessed to travel through 43 different countries coaching various Taekwondo teams around the world.
Though I was living in great comfort, destiny had its own plans. God had written something else for me. He made me go through unexpected hardships and unbearable humiliation, making me a tougher person with a goal to serve the poor and needy people, selflessly. You will be surprised to learn that in the last 20 years, I made five attempts to give up my successful professional life to perform Holy Karma. However, it was only in 2007 when the Almighty heard my prayers and showed me the path to dedicate my life in the service of humanity. My dream came true when I founded The Earth Saviours Foundation in January 2008. Since then my entire life has been dedicated to improve the lives of destitute children, abandoned senior citizens, victimized women and mentally disabled people. I feel all of them deserve a chance to live with dignity.
I am proud to share that I started The Earth Saviours Foundation without monetary support from the Government or the business community. I used all my hard-earned money to start the foundation, and today we rely solely on the generosity of individuals who have acknowledged our efforts with their time or donations. It is my constant prayer to keep our foundation independent, free to make the best decisions for the welfare of destitute people who rely on us. I wish to extend my heartiest thanks to all our patrons, visitors, well wishers and volunteers who have acknowledged our selfless service, offered support and blessings to us.
My eyes get moist again when I extend my heartiest thanks to my staff members who have always stood by me during all my hardships, financial crisis and working under critical conditions. They are truly very dedicated, caring and a family to me.
On the other hand, I must not ignore to share the painful fact that due to human negligence and selfishness, our planet Earth has been badly wounded all around. Some of the visible wounds are global warming, deforestation, rising natural disasters, droughts, floods, pollution, drinking water crisis, illiteracy, poverty, hunger, crime, traffic hazards and cruelty to animals. The damage to the environment and it’s habitats have deep scars, we are all responsible for the damages and destructions.
I strongly believe now it is the time for all socially conscious people to unite in order to heal the wounds of our mother Earth. We must preserve and renew the beauty and goodness of our planet Earth. Please support The Earth Saviours Foundation with your continues guidance and voluntarily services. In this regard, I pray to God to strengthen my resolve so that I perform to the best of my ability till my last breath.
Ravi Kalra (Karma Yogi)
Founder and President
The Earth Saviours Foundation
I am so touched to share that by the grace of God, my pilgrimage trip to “Maha Kumbh Holy Bath” at Allahabad was most satisfactory. On 14th of February 2013, I took a train to Allahabad carrying the ashes of fourteen deceased inmates of our NGO's Gurukul, who had lost their lives over the past few months due to prolonged illness and old age.
My journey was remarkable and overwhelming. Even though I had to face unbearable hardships throughout my journey, I thoroughly enjoyed the holy trip. I had to walk almost 18 kms to reach the Gracious Sangam place for “Asti- Visarjan” and Holy bath.
Due to some security issues, I had to take the longest route via Saraswati Ghat, in order to take a boat to reach the “Sangam”, the place where the white water of 'The Ganga' and the blue water of 'The Yamuna' unite together.
I was lucky to find a less crowded place where I could offer my prayers to the almighty God with total devotion. It was too freezing cold, windy, raining heavily at the “Sangam”. But God gave me strength to worship and offer countless dips, praying for my well wishers, friends, relatives and each one of you and your family who have acknowledged our NGO's mission for the welfare of community. I prayed to God to bless each one of us with happy, long and healthy lives.
The Maha Kumbh Snan was of historical importance as it had fallen after 144 years. You would feel proud to know that it was my third most gracious Maha Kumbh Snan. The first Maha Kumbh Snan I had was in the year 1998 at Haridwar and the second in 2002 at Allahabad.
I hereby take this opportunity to thank all of you for your good wishes without which this holy snan could have not been possible.

“Epitome of Human Cruelty” this sympathy, unidentified man was rescued from road by our NGO. He was found without shelter, without food, untreated and neglected for months lying at the middle of posh area of South Delhi. At the time we brought him to our Gurukul, we gave him food, water and medicine. Before we could rushed him to the hospital, he died within 15 minutes. Finally he was cremated by Ravi Kalra with full dignity, respect and holy prayers for the divine soul’s peace rest in heaven.
By the blessing of God, our initiative to rescue abandoned, senior citizens, mentally disabled and other deprived people from roads are on high spirits. These are the people found eating from stinking garbage yards or roaming naked on roads or having no bath for years. For such people our NGO’s services are round the clock, 7 days in a weak. We offer free of charge accommodation, food and medicines to these people. By the grace of God at this time there are more than 375 abandoned and disabled people are living full time at our Gurukul in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. I am so lucky and blessed by God for having me selected to perform such noble services. I am thrilled to donate my life happily for such great devotion. Please pray God to offer more strength to my shoulders, so that I rescue more and more less privileged people from roads.
An unidentified - abandoned man was rescued from road by our NGO. This poor innocent man was found in miserable condition, unattended, living without roof. He was wearing next to nothing. At the time we brought him, he had no bath for years and might not have eaten for months.
Despite our best possible care day and night, we could not save him. Due to long incurable illness and bad health, finally he departed for heaven on 17th July, 2013. In span of few years, around 67th people have died in my arms. I have been constantly selected by the amity to experience one after another human souls going out from the human bodies towards heaven.
After the prayers finally I had cremated this man at electric cremation center for the divine soul’s peace rest in heaven. I request all of you to pray for this innocent man too.
Ravi Kalra – Karma Yogi sitting in Samadhi during his mid night routine spiritual prayers at the cremation centre, praying for world peace as well as long, happy and healthy life for every human being. Ravi Kalra believes that cremation centre (Shamshan Ghat) is a house of Lord Shiva, it is a place where one can learn the only existing truth in the universe is “death”. Cremation centre (Shamshan Ghat) is a place where you find the reality of human life by understanding that after the death nothing goes with you accept your good deeds and karmas.
