Padmasambhava Centre

for Charitable Activities

The Padmasambhava Centre for Charitable Activities is a registered organization formed by a group of like-minded people who believe in reaching out with a helping hand wherever help is needed.

Our Inspiration

Padmasambhava also means "born of the lotus flower". Padma or the lotus flower rises from the fetid and murky depths of a stagnant muddy pond towards the sun and reveals its pure, sublime beauty in full glory.

It symbolizes the true potential of each soul to rise above the mud of our problems, delusions attachments and karma towards the divine light of spiritual evolution.

The source of this inspiration is the legendary being, Padmasambhava Rinpoche, who embodies the cosmic timeless principles of boundless compassion, protection and wisdom. His special quality is his power to give his blessings instantly to whoever prays to him, and whatever is prayed for, he has the power to grant the wish immediately.

Each individual member of the team comprising PCCA  has personally experienced his blessings in their hour of need repeatedly. This organization is an attempt to express their gratitude to him as well as offer their services as a channel, to extend help for alleviating the suffering of other sentient beings.

Health and medical support

In last 10 years, PCCA supported sixty (60) individuals with hospitalization and surgical support to cope with the financial burden of the families and reduce open market debts at high rates of interest. In almost all cases patients have recovered well and returned to their normal life.

Managing Trustee

Since childhood we were always taught that we should always help irrespective of who they are which included humans as well as animals. At PCCA the help is not only extended to fellow human beings but to also animals and plants as well.


In a world of strife and confusion, there is a need to look within to purify oneself and a need to look outward to see where help can be offered. That is the reason why I have come to PCCA as this satisfies both my needs – to help and to be helped.


Joining PCCA and to be part of it is to have personal satisfaction internally and to understand in deep the importance of service. The best part of PCCA is all members and needy are treated equally

Project Manager

The reason I feel such a connection with and my reason for being with PCCA is that it’s a group of people who are bound together by their need to make sense in a world which sometimes ceases to make so. People at PCCA are ready to pitch in with what ever kind of help is required be it monetary, material or holistic.


In my search for spiritual truths, I came across PCCA and found like minded people associated with it. I honor and prefer PCCA for the hard work and dedication its members have bestowed upon me in enhancing my Spiritual Development and bringing so many souls together on the path of Light


PCCA was more focused on small local groups of people or organizations where we could go and have a look and participate. We try to reach out to all living beings – be it plants, animals or humans and also covers all aspects of life.


I think, I was born to serve all living souls. Padmasambhava – sharanagati prayer gives me a good feel and PCCA has inspired me to actually do the same good work for those who need help.

Our Founder & Inspiration


A dynamic personality with multifarious interests, Vidisha Bhattacharjee was the founder of PCCA. Compassionate by nature, she was a special soul who got inspired by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui and Guru Padmasambhava to translate “Goodwill” into “Will to do Good” through this organization.

An ardent Pranic Healer and a taker of Bodhisattva Vow, her motto was “Service” during her lifetime.

We drive our inspiration from the memory of her strength, commonsense, wisdom and practicality.
