Humble Pranams to our Online Community. The Sri Raam Bhajana Mandiram  (SRBM) is a South African Hindu based Non-Profit Organisation, established on 14 February 1999.

We want to take our members and those in the community and “move” them from their current position or circumstances to a better place.

 Regardless of where they are in life (financially, professionally, emotionally, etc.), we want to move them to an improved situation.

As a registered Non-Profit Organisation, we are expected to follow certain rules and regulations set forth in legislative acts.

It is good governance for every organisation to have contractual agreements with their online community.
