HISTORICAL ROOTS
Sadhuji (K.I. Mathai), Jobji (M.P. Job- Later Rev.  J.P. Moothedath), and Chandyji ( Rev. K.K. Chandy) founded the Christavashram Community in 1934.
This community with its motto, “Thy Kingdom Come” attempts to live in love (Agape-Nonviolence), with the values and standards of Christ’s Sermon on the Mount in the spirit of the early christian community.
Members pledge themselves to give up private property and to have “all things common”. It is a total commitment under God to each other.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
In obedience to Christ’s commandment, “Love God with all your heart...and love your neighbour as yourself ”, service to one’s fellow beings and not individual gain, is sought to be the essential motive of all activities of the Ashram.
