Founder’s note

Dear Sangha,

Another school year comes to a close!
We cannot express in words just how much gratitude we feel for a safe operation and closing amidst turbulent times. We are in deep gratitude to the seamless teamwork in our entire team and the wonderful cooperation and understanding from our children and parent community.

Thank you!

Children from older Lotus through Cosmos could attend school in person for part of the year. Our little ones stayed online as per government orders. Ensuring the safety of our children and everyone else coming to school required solid team work and meticulous planning from many. Administrators, Teachers, Healers, Doctors and Staff working together as one team to ensure every detail was taken care of. Our wellbeing practices have never held as deep a meaning as they have during these times. Fire meditation ensured that everyone coming in and leaving our campus stayed safe. Breathing, Meditation, Affirmations, Acknowledging and releasing fears took on new relevance. Homeopathic preventive medicines and care were shared widely. The Sacred Classroom was adapted to the online medium with a lot of love and each teacher’s unique creativity. We are deeply grateful to our kitchen team and staff for their amazing flexibility and readiness to change course as the situation demanded. We are profoundly grateful to our team that worked at Freedom Land caring and tending to make our next campus green and ready for our children. We are grateful to our construction crew who continue to work in the blazing sun assembling hand crafted bricks under the vast skies for more sustainable buildings. Our architect and designers and interns who work magic on the land building new dreams. The past months also gave us an opportunity to share our work with a sister school in Mangalore whose teachers trained with us in The Sacred Classroom. We were also given a wonderful opportunity to share our work with the State Project Director and key resource persons from all over Karnataka state. Much gratitude to our team for working seamlessly in each case.

While the past year certainly had many challenges, and we completely acknowledge them – one thing stayed steady. Faith and divine grace. It is sheer grace that flows through us all giving us the strength to cope and rise above every challenge working as one team. Thank you to the Divinity that has helped us during these times!
May Grace continue to guide and help us through the next few months as we tide the second COVID wave. Our team of healers and doctors continues to be available to help any of you wanting to reach out to us. We have been helping many families experiencing COVID challenges with Breathing to increase oxygen levels, Fire meditation, Counselling, Staying positive and in some cases helping with food and essentials. Thank you to our team of volunteers. If any of you would like to join us in helping others – please do contact us.

Stay healthy! Stay strong! Stay safe! Divine Love and Light guides and protects all of us for our highest good!
