compassion meets
empowerment

karuna is a social enterprise
committed to making happiness accessible to all

“karuna” is a Sanskrit word that means the compassionate and selfless desire to remove suffering.

 

It is this central concept of compassion that is the heartbeat of our social enterprise. We believe that human beings have unbound potential that can be unleashed by compassion.

As a karuna ambassador, you automatically become part of this compassion movement.

 

10% of all revenue from karuna is contributed to the karuna happiness foundation whose mission is to empower marginalized women, youth and children who have suffered unspeakable abuse, trafficking, abandonment and other societal ills so they may be able to break the vicious cycles of poverty and abuse.

the karuna story

karuna was born as a blessing received during a deep meditation in early 2016. It was a message from Arun's father, whom he had lost to suicide 28 years earlier, that the purpose of life was to heal the pain and suffering of others, especially the children and their mothers who had suffered unspeakable abuse.
