Thanks to Hindu Heritage Endowment and Other Donors
In order to improve the living conditions of our children at the Yogaswami Girls Home in Batticaloa, we constructed a new dormitory building as the second storey above the kitchen, which was newly built last year.
The reason for building the dormitory upstairs was that the village Sitthandy — where the Girls home is located — is prone to floods. Last year, the home was impacted a great deal by the December flooding in the eastern province of Sri Lanka. We are hoping to complete the building before the rainy season starts.
Herewith, I am enclosing some photos of the new building under construction showing the second storey dormitory.
As you can see the beds are too crowded, and they do need a new building. But at least for now everyone will be dry when the rains come.
Our sincere thanks go out to the Hindu Heritage Endowment and other kind-hearted souls who have made this project possible. It is because of this generosity that the girls are getting a new dormitory.
My prayers that these god children will enjoy these new facilities and hope more will be done for this orphanage. Please also post these pictures on this orphanage’s website for all donors of this fund to see the progress of this orphanage.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
