The Lotus Foundation is an initiative of learning about basic principles of dharma. As one of the directors, I was asked to promote the initiative, which has been up and running for its third year now. The participants are young and it is attracting families who want to gain some insight into Vedic culture. Some of the subjects learned are hands on yoga, nutrition, plant-based diet and the values behind it, gardening, chanting mantras, basic elements of etiquette and even learning of the three energies that govern our lives.
I pieced together a video promotion for this initiative. From a distance, Sarthak, who recently arrived from India, has been very helpful.
Also, on the boil, we accomplished a recording of “Chaitanya’s Verses” a rewrite translation of Chaitanya’s expressions of devotion called sikshatakam. I have put that masterpiece to English and to rhyme. This five-minute video will be up and available in time for the 28th of this month on this great monk’s birthday.
The day was productive indeed. No walking outside yet but stretching of limbs and a good massage are slowly bringing me back to recovery.
To top the day off I sat by for our Monday night reading, which is currently executed by David, our resident handyman.
