Karma gives free treatment, care and skill development training to mental patients. They stay at ABHAYAGRAMAM, learn to stitch, make articles with banana-fiber and bamboo, paper covers etc. They have lessons in singing and do gardening and farm work. They are free to roam around, play and relax. It is a mental health centre with a difference.


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

H.H. Dalai Lama

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
