Dear Friend of the Ashram,
Our goal to raise $100,000 by Srila Govinda Maharaj’s appearance day on December 8, 2014 is progressing steadily. Every donation that we have received is very much appreciated. Thank you!
I have been asked “How much should I give?”
All donations have value. There is the value that our Ashram receives that helps pay for this project. And then there is the value the donor receives in spiritual advancement. From our view the answer is easy, please give as much as possible.
But to answer the question from the donor’s view, we should think about our own situation and how this service donation will help my own spiritual life. Our continued progress in spiritual life is nourished by our service activities.
The Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Seva Ashram in Santa Cruz California has many programs designed to give spiritual nourishment to the devotees. Here is a short video (4 min) with Srila Janardan Maharaj and Sripad Sarvabhavana Prabhu which shows some of the programs at the Santa Cruz Seva Ashram for the spiritual education of our children.
At the Seva Ashram the spiritual education of our children is important to us. Just like the flowers in our garden can become spiritual flowers when offered to the Lord, so also our children can become spiritual children when we see them in relation to Krishna’s service. But how will they develop that service connection? Watch the video for some answers…
