In 1998, admirers of Baba Neem Karoli, affectionately called “Maharaji,” began congregating in Ohio, USA. In 2002, we incorporated as Baba Neem Karoli Satsang, a tax exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit church corporation.
The corporation has been a vehicle for founding a number of food bank programs, most recently Baba’s Yard, named for our garden sanctuary, a humble corner lot in the inner city of Cleveland’s near west side.

“In the many years that I have known John [Visnauskas], I have been overwhelmed by his dedication to the most needy in our community. He gives of his time selflessly on his mission to end hunger in northeast Ohio. In that time he has acted as a catalyst for many other hunger programs by inspiring others to join in the crusade. He is one of Parma's unsung heroes. I am honored to call him friend and I thank him for all that he has done for our community.”
