Shripuram Trust was established in the year 2006. We are located in a serene peaceful village, Madayikkonam near Irinjalakkuda in Thrissur District. Shri. L Girishkumar is the founder chairman of the trust. He is a well-known personality in spiritual as well as cultural circles. He is the disciple of late Shri. Madhavji, a guiding light in the field of Tantra.

What is Tantra?
Tantra means technique-a technique for the fulfillment of desires. Man has no control over his desires. A desire is claimed as one’s own only after it comes to one’s mind. Desires are products of latent tendencies / vasanas. Through the fulfillment of the desires,‘vasanas’ are eliminated. Tantra provides the methodology whereby, through the fulfillment of one’s desires, liberation is attained. Liberation means understanding one’s own nature.From that understanding, one realizes that the world is nothing but the manifestation of the consciousness of which we are,but only a part. It is also a way of living which provides aesthetic enjoyment and knowledge. There is a shortage of proper understanding and practice of Tantra in today’s world. According to Abhinavagupta, a 10th century Tantra scholar who lived in Kashmir, Tantrasastra is the best among all sastras.

The Objectives of the Trust
The main intention of Shripuram Trust is to propagate the humanitarian aspect of Tantra in today’s world which is lacking in its understanding of this powerful Sastra.
To preserve, we digitize manuscripts both palm-leaf and paper.
For propagation, we study the manuscripts and try to revive the ancient rituals for the benefit of the mankind.

"If you believe in God and He turns out to exist, then you have obviously made a good decision;
however, if He does not exist, and you still believe in Him, you haven't lost anything;
but if you don't believe in Him and He does exist, then you are in serious trouble."
(An apt quote for the present day when atheism is seemingly in rise from B. Pascal - A scientist from the past.)
