"Acts of sacrifice, charity and penance purify even the great souls. Charity is for the purification of the heart; when given to suitable persons, it leads one to advanced spiritual life."
Okay, everybody! My inspiration. The one who shoots me rays of sunshine over cyberspace. Tracy! An absolutely amazing woman. I so enjoy sitting back and seeing what she will come up with next, and she NEVER disappoints.
Being a passionate supporter of charitable causes in India, her current project is coined "Practice for the Children Pendants." By purchasing the following pendant in honor of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, proceeds go the following charity Operation Shanti.
Operation Shanti Envisions...
A world in which the poor are given the opportunity to reach their full potential in life.
Spreading peace, goodwill, and hope throughout our world by helping the poorest and neediest gain status and their rightful place in their societies is the vision of Operation Shanti. Often, the poor are robbed of their human rights, are discarded, treated inhumanely, or are ignored. The ultimate goal of our work strives to give the poor back their rights as human beings.
Operation Shanti's Mission is...
To directly improve the lives of exploited, at-risk, destitute children and the forgotten, suffering elderly, enabling them to become "beacons of light" and share the same gifts of peace, goodwill, and generosity with others for the rest of their lifetimes.
We help the poorest and neediest children and elderly, and the forgotten destitute, with the basic human needs: food, shelter, medical services and educational assistance. As we believe that every human can and should stand on his/her own, we are there to help the destitute begin to help themselves.
With such commitment, and undying selfless enthusiasm Tracy brings to this current project and to the children of Operation Shanti, I encourage those interested to click on the following link, to her blog, to purchase a pendant in honor of our dear Guruji, that will in turn better the lives of children this great charity touches. For only $34 USD. the pendant can be shipped anywhere in the world. So don't delay!
I say this because it comes from a heart, so big, I continually draw unlimited sources of inspiration from her. Dear Tracy!
