BENEFITING: SAMADHI HERMITAGE
One year India School fees needed this year for Sagar.
The Samadhi Hermitage has supported (nearly 100% from 1990-2009) the family of Jyoti and Sagar Mishra (in Haridwar, India) since BEFORE their birth! Same as with Sita’s family … the Hermitage bought the land, built the house, supported the family, and sent both of these stunning kids to English Medium school! Parents are under-educated, unskilled with four kids; so it is very lucky we met 25 years ago!
The four photos here, are from 2015, 2014, 2008, and 2005 (family collage). Further pics and stories (20 yrs+) of our history together can be seen at:

Now, Jyoti and Sagar are close to manifesting their “same dream” … a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting, followed by a Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW)! Yep, we will become a 3 people social working team over here!
Jyoti has now finished her Bachelor’s degree. After her Vipassana Meditation camp next month, she will join staff for one year at Maher Orphanage in Pune, my favourite orphanage in India, before going for her MSW degree. Sagar, however, still has one more year to go for his BA; and that year of expenses the Hermitage needs help with. School fees - $400; home expenses - $600. We need the help with his home expenses, because now mother is disabled and can’t work; and father is also mostly useless.
This sister and brother are real tight, like soulmates; and they both have avowed no marriage, no babies … “We need to serve, NOT make more!” Great kids! They know the value of social work, and gratefulness … without my presence in their life, they may have been just "tea shop" kids! Please help as best you can. We hope they will get scholarships for their Masters Degree program; so hopefully we will not need too much help at that time. Thanks so much!
p.s. this also represents a great liberation for all of us .. they get to take care of their selves; and I get my "free to be" back again!
May all blissings and blessings be upon you!
