Shrimad Rajchandra Prisoner Upliftment and Reform Efforts (PURE) focus on the development of the prisoners' spiritual and moral values, physical and mental health, as well as education and skills. This programme provides a healing touch to prisoners and leads them towards a better life in the future.
It has been estimated that only one-third of those who are currently in jail in India have been convicted and are serving a sentence. The rest are still awaiting a trial, which means that they could be proven innocent. This time of waiting for a verdict can be stressful for those who have been imprisoned, as well as for their families.
We interact with prisoners through spiritual discourses, value-based sessions, meditation, yoga techniques and pranayam. We share books on spirituality, philosophy and culture to help cultivate positive thought patterns and emotions for a smooth transition into the social life.
