    CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN FOR ELECTRICITY AND WATER POND

    LAST DAYS BEFORE OUR 7 DAY "LIVING YOGA CAMP" guided by Sannyasis Atmatattwa and Brahmananda


    1. ABOUT THE PROCESS OF GETTING ELECTRICITY TO THE FARM:  

      

    The campaign is in the octopousse website HERE  

    And goes very well with more than 25 donors and over 1300 euros already reached ... goal being 1800 euros  

    This campaign aims at allowing the farm to face the expected expenses when Electricity will be allowed by the forest departement and electricity departement.... A lot of paperwork,  bureaucratie is going on since more than 3 years !!!!!  

    Everything was going very positively and i really expected electricity to be installed very soon, like the Forest chief said to me ... “ only a few days to wait”... 

    But today a very different news arrived:  

    Now the forest departement is ok... and will not block the process.. however from the Electric departement (Tedash) a problem has come:  

    THERE IS NO “RUHSAT” ... Ruhsat being a sort of ID card for a HOUSE.. or BUILDING which could be on the field where electricity is to be installed... 

    Well.. 

    The thing is:  

    The tiny house in which i stay is a “ready made” home bought cheap and second hand... without any “ruhsat” ... 

    But knowing that i had got a SPECIFIC paper  from the Mayor, which was supposed to replace the ruhsat. 

    Unfortunately ... this paper has been made 2 years ago ( so long has been the process) and in the mean times the LAWS have CHANGED !!! ... 

    So. 

    Now this paper is not accepted anymore by the Electricity department... which as a consequence does NOT accept to give electricity to the farm. 

      

    Well after the first “shock” of this very unexpected news.. i must say i still feel very CONFIDENT .. SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN .. 

    I dont know what.  

    But i trust that NOTHING HAPPENS by CHANCE and most of all EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR OUR GOOD. 

      

    So ..  

    I plan to go and talk to the Electricity department head director and to the Prefect, very soon next week. 

    And if really this fact is confirmed then we shall have to find another way to provide hard electricity to the farm.... 

    Maybe more solar pannels ?? and batteries ???  

    Is it possible however to run water pumps (1.5 kW) and washing machine (3.5kW) with solar panel ?  

    Or something different ???Well .. The "House of the SUN" in Antalya may give lots of information about this..  

    Your ideas – suggestions – comments - links ... will be more than welcome !  

     

    Nothing happens by chance... 

     

    Whatever the solution THERE WILL BE A SOLUTION for the ELECTRICITY in the YUNUS EMRE FARM ...and YOUR HELP SUPPORT AND CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE THE MOTOR TO REALISE IT . 

      

      

    2. THE WATER RESERVOIR – LOTUS POND    (see NEW video HERE)  

      

    Unlike the electricity process, the water reservoir question has been solved very rapidly and in a very unexpected manner. Well however MONEY STILL NEED TO BE FOUND and WILL BE FOUND ! ..  THANKS TO ALL OF YOU :O))) 

      

    What happened is that Mr Aziz the MANAGER of the company which i contacted to do the pond’s covering work  with this EPDM- geomembrane, has been VERY KIND because TOUCHED by the Yunus Emre farm’s project. 

      

    That is why he ACCEPTED to start the work so that the pond might be useable before summer to water the plants, WITH ONLY A SMALL DEPOSIT !!!! ... 

    The rest of the money will be given END OF JUNE upon completion of the indiegogo campaign where your DONATION will be VERY WELCOME. 

    And the pond will be finished before winter. The SIDES need to be enlarged and properly fixed. 

      

    So thats a kind of magic to see the pond with its brand new inside covering, ready to hold water for more than 20 years.. 

      

    However we have less than 50 days to FIND around 3000 EUROS ....(4000 USD)  

    so I DO HOPE you will continue to HELP SHARE SUPPORT - .INDIEGOGO HERE-. transmit these news to your friends and relatives and collegues ... so that we CAN RAISE MONEY and pay the bill ... if we are 100 people to give 30 euros/ 40 USD ... it is done !!! ... the more we are the less money we need to give .. :o)) 

      

      

    THANKS A LOT FOR BEING HERE and HELPING WITH YOUR HEAD HANDS and HEART :o) 

    Om shanti 

       

    Now we are preparing the farm to welcome around 15 people for our 3rd SATYANANDA YOGA SEMINAR ... 

    7 DAY LIVING YOGA CAMP which will be for sure a beautiful experience.. 

     

    OM SHANTI
