People get depressed when they feel disconnected, cut off from the joys and sorrows of the rest of the world, imprisoned in their own concerns. But the more we expand our sense of self and connection with others, the more we feel that we’re all in this cosmic drama together and we’re all helping each other through it. That feeling of connection comes from daily introspection and service. The more you feel it internally the more you feel like sharing it. And the more you share it the more you feel it internally. The two aspects – self-realization and service – are complimentary, feeding into each other like a river feeds into the sea, the sea water in turn evaporating and feeding back into the river in a beautiful cycle of integrated oneness. “It is action that makes a person great. Be great by your sadhana [spiritual practice], by your service, and by your sacrifice.”
Getting into this two aspects loop of self-realization and service, our volunteer Palli Tulasi Raj has identified two poor and needy women, Tembari Chinnamma (age-85) and Tembari Gotamma (age-38) at Donuru Village, Gajapati Mandalam, Orissa. Tembari Gotamma is a physically challenged woman and Chinnamma is a very old lady. Their health does not support them to work and earn properly. They are in a miserable situation that they are not able to fill their belly daily. We the LAASA has provided food under 100 day food program to this needy and deserving women.
