Bev Society is a non-profit society dedicated to developing a prototype self sufficient community, which grows its own food, takes care of its livestock and at the same time gives the oppurtunity for itself as well as the surrounding community a livelihood and the means to learn and to prosper in knowledge as well as economically, by principles of ecology and preserving nature around us.

Bev is involved in the making of a better tomorrow for those who need it the most. Children who haven't known what a full meal is. Children who haven't known what a good caring treatment was when they were sick and children who don't know what education is meant for are the beneficiaries of your kind help.

How we help you "help others"..

Bev is dedicated to the education of the poor, giving natural alternative medical relief, providing pure nutritious food, upliftment of humanity by spiritual values, protection of wildlife and conservation of nature. Our programs focus on what scientists consider two of the most serious drawbacks of today. Firstly is illiteracy for the poor and secondly the negligence to protect our natural resources. With your help we teach by practical examples how our children the inheritors of our planet, can live a better tomorrow. We propose to establish model prototype villages based on example as well as precept.


Ancient History of Site:

The historical significance of the site of the Bev at Kudachadri Mountain is elucidated in the ancient epics such as Mahabharata, Ramayana and Bhagavat Purana. The incarnation of Lord Rishabadeva had the specific purpose of re-establishing varnashram in this world as a system of governance. The present site on the side of the "Kutakachala" mountain is the exact spot where Lord Rishabadeva left this mortal world in a forest fire.

This Kudachadri mountain is also reputed to be the topmost peak of the mountain carried by mighty Hanuman containing the sanjeevani herbs that revived Sri Ram and Laxman. The Narasimha Purana gives an exacting description in the Sahyadri Mahatmya and hallows this spot as the adored adobe of Lord Vishnu in this world and equates all the water tirtha's with the sacred Ganges River in potencies. The location is non-different from Vaikunta Dhama in this world. Other various descriptions are also elucidated in numerous holy scriptures hallowed by millions. They call the sacred forests surrounding the site as a "siddhi kshetram" where all perfection's can be quickly achieved 1,000's of times faster than when performed in other places. Lord Krishna & Rukmini, Shankacharya, Lord Rama & Laxman, Garuda, Agastya Rishi, Kolla Maharishi, etc. all performed pastimes in this sacred place. The forests that surround the lands are known as the sporting gardens in this mortal world of Ambika, the Divine Mother of the Universe.
