Happenings in Sri Lanka

Photos arrived of the opening of the new facilities for the Tirunavakarasu Orphanage in Sri Lanka. You will remember that the old building was destroyed in the Asian Tsunami. Finally, the boys have a new home, more inland this time.

The photos here are of the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

Two swamis graced the event, and Kannan welcomes them in the traditional way.

The ribbon is cut to open the building. With the next few photos we give a few Yogaswami gems of wisdom. His life and teachings, along with Gurudeva's, are the fundamental inspiration behind this orphanage.

YOGASWAMI SAID: You must not be indifferent to work because your salary is poor.

We must demolish the fortress that we ourselves have built.

The great say that we should remain without like or dislike.

All men are beautiful walking flowers. Instead of remaining as a witness and enjoying all this, man suffers through being possessed by the disease of 'I' and 'mine'.
