Devotees from Greece have been coming to Swami for more than
25 years. Swami has always been showering His abundant Love
and Grace on these groups and this year has not been an exception.
More than 50 devotees from all parts of Greece gathered during
July and August at His Lotus Feet, basking in His Love. Here
is their account of the experiences they had this year.
Throughout all these years we have come to
understand Swami's message of Love and Unity and apply it
in terms of service to the needy. During the last few years,
each time we came to Prashanti Nilayam, we made it a practice
to do Grama Seva (service to village people). During
our recent trip too we did this twice by visiting five remote
villages, such as Chinnaboyanapalli and Narepalli.
We began by distributing stationary items
for the school children (slates, chalk, pencils, rubbers,
sharpeners, etc.) as well as sweets and Swami’s pictures.
Next, we distributed large quantities of rice (totally 600
packets of 1kg each) and dhal (totally 600 packets of ½
kg each) to the poor families of these villages.
