Re: Re: Sri Sarada Society


"For a long time the Courtyard was quiet. Now you have come". That sounds so like the quotes of Mother one has read!

The bees are coming...

Love to all.

On behalf of Sri Sarada Society, do I thank Paritosh? I do not know. For me, you are all part of whatever service Mother allows us to offer. We are all devotees, her children, and each of us has something to share with others. For a long time, Mother's Courtyard was quiet. Now you have come. Your faith and devotion has made Mother's presence real and tangible. Jai Ma!

A few days ago, I received the Sri Sarada Society Notes of Winter 2002 and read it again and again. What makes this issue special for me is to see Motherís work and plans. I feel humbled and think Mother must be smiling at all of us. She does her job and gets it done well.

It always amazes me to see how small projects lead on to wonderful sustaining institutions, a source of inspiration and a place for pilgrimage for some of us who live far away from a Vedanta center here in the US. I come here to the courtyard read and talk with other children, get some energy and move on doing my work.

When these thoughts come to mind I do not know what would be an appropriate response? Convey my gratitude to the Sarada Society and all the people that make it work? Come here to the courtyard and express my feelings in public?

The true feelings are deep within my soul. I look at the Mother, know She has done all of this to take care of me. When the realization comes that this work is Mother reaching out to me it serves as a constant reminder that She is ever present in my life, then there is no gratitude, there is no public thanks there is no known feeling or response. All that remains is the eternal relationship with the Mother, a relationship that bears no name, form or shape; it doesnít contain any characteristics known to us as humans but results in a deep transformation inside.
