Personal Transformation Experience

Serving to Transform

 

To reflect and see where I am now is a story of transformation in progress.

 

No one would have ever dared to dream, including myself, that I would be here part of this most beautiful mission of our Lord unfolding in front of our eyes.

 

To have our most compassionate Sai Maa pick me out of the deepest jungles of Maya and bless me to be part of His mission is so overwhelming.

 

How do you repay this abundance of grace and bounty of blessings... I vowed and prayed to try, with tireless efforts, and yet fully knowing, the debt is immeasurable.

 

Immediately after Swami's visit during New Year 2014-15 a group of youth looked at what services can we could provide for our community. With Swami's guidance, we reached out to the Toogoolawa school and started a healthy awareness and dental services program for the students. This is a school for students removed from the mainstream education system.

 

Swami has blessed us to set up "Health in Kind" a non-profit company dedicating our time and effort to provide health and well-being services for the children and families in our community.

 

Being totally committed and immersed in these service projects has opened my eyes and highlighted to me that this is my life. There is nothing else. This body has been given to serve and love others. To see the youth strive to help others, and seeing their transformation in front of me, is so inspirational and drives me to do more.

 

The experiences I've had being part of these service activities has clearly driven home the message of how important it is to live a life of selfless service.  With a young family, it's also clear to me the example we need to be for our children -- to share the experiences of serving others with our children and inspiring them to dedicate their lives to selflessly helping others.

 

Swami,

With utmost humility and reverence, I offer myself at thy Divine Lotus feet. Let us all be ideal instruments of yours.

 

Lots of Love
