Science Fair 2017

Boys participated in Peak Science Fair and then they presented their projects at Region VII Lower Science Fair at Ole Miss.  For Peak, they needed to create a hands-on stem activity.  So, they studied and created geodesic domes.  We took gumdrops and toothpicks so that each kid can create their own geodesic dome.

Spirit of Gandhi

Celebration of 144th birth anniversary in Tupelo!

We have about couple of dozen photographs of Gandhi and a few of his quotes that gives spiritual insight into the legend that is a living inspiration to us all.

Gandhi himself said, “What a great thing it would be if we in our busy lives could restore into ourselves each day for at least a couple of hours and prepare our minds to listen to the voice of the great silence. The divine radio is always singing if we could only make ourselves ready to listen to it, but it is impossible to listen without silence.”

We have a small corner where we helped people who were interested to feel this inner silence. We had several people from different walks of life who came over to the exhibition. A few just sat and watched the Gandhi movie for a while. The most popular part of the exhibition for the kids was the depiction of the salt march near the seashore at Dandi.

Please join us between 10 and 4 at Lee County Library to celebrate a legend tomorrow again!

Expecting to Fly: In Search Of The Spirit

Expecting to FlyExpecting to Fly: In Search Of The Spirit” by Patrick Sheridan is a book that I can never forget and I need to read it at least once again. It was very hard to put this book down. I am filled with awe about how Shri Mataji cleansed, nourished, comforted and guided the author.

Shri Mataji didn’t look at his personality or appearance but looked at his heart as he was a seeker and took him under her protection. She transformed him from a heavy 60s style drug addict who had abandoned his son to a loving family man who gave up all addictions and is leading a respectable, normal, happy life. This book should serve as a warning to anyone who seeks through drugs and/or any black magic. My favorite parts of the book are Patrick’s interactions with Shri Mataji. Also, it was inspiring to learn about the beginnings of Sahaja Yoga in London. There’s so much I learnt from this book that inspires my own spiritual journey. Above all, I love the transparency, that is, I love how the author has bared his life, thoughts and heart out without concern for being judged. I wish I had met the author when I was living in London.

Every age has its greatest discovery. The greatest of all is inside of us.

This is an inspiring story that demonstrates the power of knowing our self through daily meditation. The best part of it is that this story is one of many thousands. So, rest assured that this beautiful world of God is not going the get destroyed. It’s a beautiful world! All we need to do is look into us and expand our heart and fill it with love. Love can overcome all that’s destructive in this world.

Here’s the audio for the interview.

Poem for Shri Mataji

I was a little girl and one day, I wrote a poem and hid it behind Shri Mataji’s photograph. I was very careful and particular that my mother doesn’t find out as I didn’t want anyone to know about this poem. The next day I destroyed it.

After few months, Shri Mataji was coming to Calcutta and we had gone to the airport to welcome Her. We got the opportunity to offer flowers and do pranams individually to Her. When it was my turn, I offered flowers and bowed down. Shri Mataji said to me that She read the poem that I wrote and loved it. My mouth was open and all I could do was pranams.
