Devi (Vivianne Nantel) has co-created several animal welfare projects abroad, including: The ABC clinic for stray and feral cats and dogs at the Art of Living Yoga International Center, TNR (Trap Neuter Release) feral cat projects in California, and helped with the original plan of the World Compassion Day (WCD) event in Mumbai, with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This event was sponsored and organized by the National Media Foundation, a division of Pritish Nandy Communications, Ltd. which collaborated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) & Humane Society International (HSI), and the Foundation for Non-Violent Alternatives (FNVA), an institute for developing peace studies.
In various occasions she has donated several of her artwork to raise funds for either build a children school in India, or help the underprivileged children and women or the animals.
Devi loves to support many non-profit humanitarian, environmental and animal welfare organizations…..
Never refrain from speaking the truth even if your voice shivers, your whole body trembles, though speak with a loving compassionate voice otherwise no one will hear you.
Where there is divine love, there is compassion in actions.
Genuine kindness is as mesmerizing as the petals of a blossoming cherry tree swirling in the springtime breeze.
Humility is bowing in reverence to all living beings while realizing there is One great supreme intelligence behind it all.
