A good way to start Sai seva- Lets follow the Guru Mantra !
*Service to Humanity is Service to God* Give food to the hungry, water to the thirsty, and clothes to the naked. Then God will be pleased.The giver gives, but really he is sowing the seed for later: the gift of a rich harvest.
- Shirdi Saibaba This Guru Mantra truly reminds me about one of my friends, Mrs.Dimple -- who is working along with 50+ women to make a difference in some one's life. 'They are a group of women from a small town in the State of Andhra Pradesh, South India whose goal is to do something for the development of women and children in the areas where our help is much needed and appreciated. Hence they have started a small team to reach out and help the poor and needy.. Indira Mahila Mandali of the Women :: for the Women :: by the Women (http://immoffice.tk/) I salute to all those 50 plus women who not only beleive in the teachings of Baba but are also trying their level best to follow them and live by those morals to the best of their ability .. In near by villages and surrounding areas where women do not have any economic independence, since neither did they attend any school and nor are they able to send their children to school because of their limited income. Infact they use them as child labourers or baby sitters.. And some families who are indeed fortunate enough to be able to send their kids to school ,would rather send their male child to school and prefer leaving the female child illiterate. And on top of that to add to the already ongoing problem, child marriages still do exist even though it is illegal , giving rise to teen pregnacy's and rise in death rate of young women. The health awarness for such women are rarely given any importance. And this is where the Indira Mahila Mandali which consists of a little over 50 women have joined hands together to follow the teachings of Shri Sadguru Sainath and are actively following the Guru Mantra : Service to Humanity is Service to God. All of us reading this mail are sitting in the comfort of our homes with a hope and wish that perhaps ,one day they will be able to do some Sai seva- some humble and noble deed which will make their life worth living. Well, I guess now is the time..If we can not go to these villages to reach out to these helpless women and the needy children --We can surely help Indira Mahila Mandali financially, so that we can help them to help others. Our financial assistance will help them acquire land and building which will provide housing and the school for girls, it will have a Handi Crafts training center which will help women to earn their living and be confident, it will have Home for Aged ,It will have an overhead projector and other equipment to promote health and aids awareness in the slums and villages , medical supplies and medical van to reach out to people who can’t afford to go to a doctor and much more. Don’t you think we all Sai devotees should help Indira Mahila Mandali in this humble and noble deed. I dont know about you, but I am surely going to be a part of this great deed by helping them financially to help others who are in need.
