In closing our spring fundraiser — With All Your Heart — I want to thank you for your donation, with all my heart.
This fundraising initiative has been the most exciting so far. Many of you responded with a gift for the first time. in addition, many of you reached out to your own sphere of influence through Facebook. In just a few weeks, you have greatly increased the visibility and name recognition of the Svaroopa® Sciences as well as contributed to the Ashram’s financial support. Thank you, with all my heart.
Another amazing result is that you have shared an important part of yourself with those you love and value. By setting up your own fundraiser on your personal Facebook page, you shared something important to you. As well, it could be beneficial to family, friends and acquaintances. How beautiful to be sharing the love widely! I thank you, with all my heart.
Of course, some of you may not have felt comfortable using social media in this way. Yet so many of you generously opened your heart by donating on the Svaroopa Vidya Ashram Facebook page, on another Svaroopi’s Facebook page or directly to the Ashram. Together, your generous donations have and exceeded our goal of $20,000. I thank you, with all my heart.
Giving is the ultimate heart opener. Just like the riddle of the chicken and the egg, which comes first? Your heart opens and then you give, or you give and your heart opens? The good news is, no answer is needed. Either order works miraculously!
In the coming year, your Board of Directors will be focusing on expanding the reach of the Svaroopa® Sciences. The purpose is to bring Swamiji and the ancient teachings to spiritual seekers the world over. Your loving generosity is supporting the flow of Grace far and wide. Your financial contribution, given with all your heart, makes it possible for Swamiji to fulfill this vision. Your loving donation, no matter the amount, fuels this transformation.
From my heart, to your heart, I thank you.
With Love and Gratitude, Lynn (Gurupremananda) Cattafi, SVA Board President
Posting on Facebook was a stretch that turned out to be a way of coming out more fully about my commitment to the Ashram and this path. It was liberating. Freedom! Thank you with all my heart.
