Dear fellow seekers,
Welcome to the Buddha Purnima edition of our e-magazine. We are experiencing an unprecedented crisis all over the world. It seems that the Coronavirus has completely taken over our lives. It’s just an illustration of what our Master has always said – Brahman is powering the smallest of beings (in this case the virus) as well the most powerful and mighty being.
The daily life of each and every person in this world has been impacted. Everything that we had taken for granted is being questioned at every moment of life (social life, availability of food, travel, social distancing.…the list goes on and on). Nature is showing its pristine form in many areas. It is being widely stated that this might be the “new normal” in the future.
So, what can we do at this time? Life has paused in some aspects for several of us. We have been freed up from some daily chores/activities (e.g. less shopping, no commute times…) – and that has hopefully freed up some time for us. Can we utilize this time to read and listen to our Master’s teachings and reflect on them? It will make each and every one of us stronger in life – and prepare us for the new life ahead of us.
Joy Babathakur! Joy Babathakur! Joy Babathakur!
