Inauguration by H.E. K.R. Narayanan on 5.10.1995
His Holiness The Dalai Lama laying the foundation stone of Abhayagramam on 28-12-1992
Spread over a ten-acre stretch of land in the village of Malayinkeezhu, in the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram, Abhayagramam is the nerve center of ABHAYA's multifaced activities. KARMA, MITRA, SRADHA BHAVANAM and ABHAYABALA function at Abhayagramam. The Peepul tree planted by H.H Dalailama, stands guard at its entrance.
I too am a refugee and I am here because of the kindness of India. Let this land be a refuge for the homeless and the most unfortunate. I bless this soil and pray for Abhayagramam
Abhaya is an institution which offers shelter to mental patients. It is a product of creativity and compassion. Its efforts in extending a helping hand to helpless mental patients are praiseworthy. The scientific methods adopted by Abhaya in dealing with the problems of patients are worth emulating
