By Gurupremananda Lynn Cattafi, SVA Board President
The words I use to thank our donors never seem enough. None can fully convey the deep gratitude I have for all of you. I see our charitable organization becoming a true community from your stepping up, reaching out and supporting our beloved Swamiji, her work and your fellow yogis. You are traversing this path with commitment and devotion.
We have reached our fundraising goal. Your donations, especially in the last few days, have matched the Board’s generous gifts. Your $22,000 has been doubled, giving the Ashram the ability to offer you so much. Thank you for your part in making this possible.
Giving is never about the amount; it is about the intent. When your pure love and generosity fuel the impulse for you to give, it moves mountains. The beauty of your investment in your Ashram is that you see and experience the tangible results for yourself and your whole community.
The next time you read an article or hear the opening mantra at the start of a phone call or one of Swamiji’s online audios, know that your donation helped her bring that to you and your fellow yogis. The next time you are snuggling into a cozy bed at Lokananda after a day of blissful immersion, know that your donation helped create and support your room. When you are being lovingly supported by one of the Ashram staff or Teacher Trainers, know that your donation supports them. By your gift, know that you are bringing daily support to your Guru so that she may give you your Self.
So, with words that are never enough, I thank you for reaching inside to find the ability to take care of your Guru, bu investing in your Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram and supporting your community.
