Sri Lanka Mission – Honoring Our Elders

Rajeswary Ramalingam, the oldest person in the Sivapoomi Elderly Home, celebrated her 99th birthday on the 5th of January. The Kottam children organized a special birthday party for her.

They received her with flower garlands and she cut her birthday cake. The children entertained her and other guests with some cultural events.

All the children and adults received blessings from her. We are looking forward to honoring her century birthday next year.

Even though she is the oldest resident, she is still active and kind, helping and encouraging others.

It is our duty to honor and appreciate the elderly. As our beloved Gurudeva says, “Old and grey but here to stay.” We are sure that Gurudeva is smiling from the inner worlds.

Aum shanti
