Each of us has a unique, personal and incredible journey for our spiritual unfoldment. Our inspiration comes from the guidance and teachings of our spiritual teacher or Guru, Sri Sakthi Amma. Through our time spent with Amma, we learn about the precious gift of life and the practice of devotion: bhakti yoga. We experience how devotion opens us up inside to an eternal stream of unconditional love. By connecting with this love in the depths of our hearts, a wish naturally arises to want to share it with the world.
The Joy Of Giving
Through travelling in Indonesia, living in India and witnessing Amma’s unconditional giving, we have felt the profound joy that comes from giving. Our lives have been enriched by opportunities to serve food to the hungry, distribute clothes to those in need, hand out books and pens to students in rural villages, blankets to orphans... and of course sharing our passion of music and yoga.
Are We Really Separate?
At the deepest level we realise that we are not separate. The world and universe is akin to a body of cells, atoms, space and infinite intelligence, that we are all a part of. And when we give to others, we are not really giving to others. We are giving to ourselves. The same soul or consciousness that lies within us exists in everyone. This is our shared presence. So when the soul in another person feels happy we feel that same resonance in the depth of our soul. Gandhi referred to this when he famously said ‘that to the extent one of us rises, we all rise and to the extent one of us falls, we all fall’.
