Varadero / Toronto

More About Appreciation

The plane landed, Air Canada, Flight 1741 at 2:00 p.m. Passengers applauded. They don’t always. They showed their appreciation. It’s what the world needs now. Like your pilot who lands you safely.

I received an e-mail from Chaitanya Priya, our stalwart trooper in Havana. The message read, “Thank you to be inspired us. (She’s learning English.) All devotees are very happy with your visit. I’m would like that you have a good travel. We wait for you to next year. Please, excuse our offenses.” Of course, there weren’t any.

I’m glad that everyone feels that way about the visit from Hayagriva and I. We also know that our timing was right. A well-known musician in Cuba had his mother pass away and our communication or conversation with him and his wife made a difference, especially after we gave him, or rather sang for him, the maha-mantra.

Also, a woman from eastern Europe was in a quandary about her life regarding soulmates and we suggested she make God her soulmate. That, and more discussion with her on life in general, gave her a fresh start to her thinking.

These last two situations occurred randomly. We had no idea that we would factor them into our schedule, but they were meant to be.

Also, in Matanzas, at the main city square, Hayagriva and I, upon our arrival there yesterday, were rather hungry. We ate pizza, a Cuban version, and people came up to Hayagriva and recalled how he had led some great chanting sessions right there in public. They remembered the monk, and the group with him, singing their hearts out. They expressed their gratitude.

May the Source be with you!
