Swami Vishwananda Kenya Seva
Swami Vishwananda's Kenya Seva Society February Seva
Swami Vishwananda Seva Society did a seva at Joy Town Primary School which is based in Thika. This school has about 400 children suffering from either mentally challenged or physical disabilities. The seva group bought bread, juice, sweets, milk and clothes for the children. We received donations from Canada which was equivalent to Ksh 15,000. The donations were through individuals and collected by Satish.
The children were so happy and excited to have us there. We have done 4 seva activities in this place since last year. It was beautiful to receive this love from them. Just before we had this seva, someone popped this question to me, "What do we mean by seva? And it made me wonder!! Seva actually is to serve all selflessly, with love just as you would serve the divine because he lives in all of us. It could be from making someone smile to sending healing!
When we visited the children, so many thoughts run through the mind, that how the grace of the divine has been with us that we are so blessed to at least be in a state that we can understand the gift of life. Yet, we are always unsettled, we want more? We never satisfied. Then what would I say about the kids? We request all those who will read this report, to take a moment, and visualize these children and pray for them to heal. Take a moment to reflect your life, and feel the grace of God that has always been there with you.
