There's an old saying in India... "a hungry stomach does not know God."

When we share our abundance, no matter how big or small it may be,
we help keep spirituality alive in our society and the world.
We experience an incredible joy and "oneness" from doing so,
and likewise,
we enable others to do and enjoy the same.

Can there really be any higher purpose to life than this ..
to have personal joy and peace in life,
thru sharing, serving, and enabling others to experience the same?
Is there a definition of "Liberation" which does not embrace this?

Most likely, not so!

Various forms of seva (service) occur thru contributions of
 clothing, medicine, vitamins & other supplements, money, materials and tools for
self-employment, better health, education of children, home improvement or repairs,
spiritual pilgrimage, and so on.

$10-20/month is NOT a hardship for most of us; yet it can do wonders in 3rd world countries!
For assistance to poor folks in any 3rd world country, no amount is too small.

For Example:

In India: $20-30/month = private English Language school for one child.
$50/month (Rs3000) = basic necessities for a single-mom family, 3 kids;
$100/month = fairly well, full monthly expenses.

and … at Maher Orphanage, in Pune

$100/month (Rs6000) will fully support three women or children/month!

This place is truly one of my favorites in all India.
What they do for the children is absolutely awesome!!
They now have 30+ homes in Pune and elsewhere,
and they keep expanding as funds become available.

"Maher means 'Mother's Home' …
A haven of hope, belonging and understanding.
Our mission is to help destitute women, children and men from all over India
to exercise their right to a higher quality of life,
irrespective of gender, caste, creed or religion."

Concerning our own families …

    In 2015 … Jyoti Mishra, will start her Master's Degree studies in Social Work, at a University in Pune. At the same time, she will also be engaged with Maher Orphanage. The following year her brother Sagar will do the same. This is their own chosen way to pay back the gift of our life-long support to their family; and becomes a first step in the 3 of us becoming a social-working team!  Hows that? Totally cool!!

    Sita is also maturing and developing herself.  Studies in Tailoring, Montessori and Beauty Parlor will enable her to be self-supporting, and with a real life!

    So … now, we are experiencing little kids becoming big kids; they need bigger toys, and bigger education … and thus an increase in expenses for their support until they can do it on their own. The Master's Degree program for Jyoti & Sagar will cost a significant chunk of money (School fees, hostel, etc.); so your donations for this will certainly be very appreciated.
