With the Grace of Gurudeva all is well with me. Last October when I was in Sri Lanka I took a two day trip, accompanied by my mother, to Baticaloa. We visited the Yogaswami Girls’ Home and the Sivathondan Nilayam.
Last year HHE sent a grant to the Yogaswami Girls’ Home. The management used the money to build a wall around the property. Due to the need for security, it was a good use of the grant money. I also saw the cow that Nilufer Clubwala bought for the Home. It is providing needed milk and yogurt for the girl’s nourishment.
Last July the Canadian Sri Lankan Community had a fund raiser for the Yogaswami Girls’ Home. Dance student, Nayani Rajamohan, performed a benefit dance show which raised CA$ 6000 dollars. We are going to use this money to build a new kitchen for the home since the old kitchen is in very bad shape. I met with the building contractor and initiated the project prior to my departure.
We didn’t have time to visit the Gurukulam as it is a 3 hour drive from the Sivathondan, however, Babu and some of the boys from the Gurukulam traveled to the girls’ home to meet with me.
I am enclosing some photos taken at the girls’ home and the Sivathondan Nilayam in which you can see the new wall built with the HHE grant.
All hail to Hindu Heritage Endowment and it’s Stewards!

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
