Mothers Trust Ashram, Lakeshore Interfaith Community, Ramakrishna Sarada Universal Temple
Developing our spiritual community & outreach programs, especially for Women & Girls in today's modern world. Known as the Mothers Trust Mission for Women & Girls, we are dedicated to interfaith study and dialogue as one of the many important ways of promoting understanding, respect, compassionate forgiveness and peaceful relationships among people of differing beliefs in the community and in the world, for the sustainability of the earth and the healing of all living beings and relationships. Interfaith honors differences, and the common ground of human dignity and Spirit.
Mother's Trust began as an idea long before 1991, the year it was incorporated. In 1973, a young Eva Schroeder (later to become Gauribrata Puri Devi, head sannyasini of Mother's Trust / Mother's Place, Sri Sri Sarada Mata Ashram) met Swami Bhashyananda in Chicago. From the first moment, the Swami saw something in the earnest newcomer; he felt and clearly expressed his belief that she would dedicate her life to spirituality and the service of women.
