“God is one, but each individual can and must create a form for themselves according to their taste. When salt is in the sea, it is not distinct from the sea. It is a part of the ocean. This salty taste is a quality present in the entire ocean. Do we have to drink and taste the entire ocean to experience this saltiness? One drop of water suffices to tell us that the ocean water is salty. Similarly, even if you experience a small part of the aspect of Divine (Brahman) present within your heart, you can understand the divine. There are many tube lights in a home, and we think they are different. Indeed, the light coming from each tube light is different, but the current that flows through all the tube lights is the same. All human beings in this world are like tube lights, and God, in the form of Shaktipata (spiritual energy), shines in all human tube lights…”
As mentioned earlier in the context, God is in all beings and is the same but exhibits different. It’s only when we’re able to see God in peers, that moment can be said as the moment of Truth, Moment of Salvation. LAASA salutes its volunteer Seera Lokanadha Rao who has explained the meaning and the inner essence of all the vedas by identifying needy person Konnada Shankar (40) – a HIV patient living at Kesavaraopalem Village, Laveru Mandal, Srikakulam District. He was unable to work due to ill health and His mother K.Chittamma has taken the responsibility and go for work as a daily wage labor. Shankar has lost both his Father and wife too. He has two children studying 6th and 4th classes. The whole family is depending on Shankar’s mother who cannot handle everything on her own. LAASA stretches its hand to give both financial and moral support to the family. For now, LAASA has committed to provide necessary food and groceries sufficient for 100 days.
Man should try to bring out the latent energy within him to help his brother. As always LAASA is to Love all and Serve All to infinity and beyond.
