I took great delight in one of those live stream MS Teams presentations with GEL, which stands for “Gita Ethics Learning,” an educational program to encourage a more holistic lifestyle. The lessons are for the young, however, this morning’s call took more the form of a town hall meeting, with students and their parents.
I spoke about my being raised in the countryside, on a small farm, and what that involved. “The animals were all around us.” The Q&A session went well, much to do with parents exploring how to motivate their kids towards higher values and states of consciousness.
My second half of the day entailed a visit to “I Gita”, a studio facility for yoga. And last, but not least, some participation in Brampton’s chariot festival. Due to the lockdown, once again, this annual event was downscaled dramatically, but with safety in mind—adjustments were made. The community is happy, they have missed the temple.
In fact the calls are increasing. The need for socializing in a pure environment is on the rise. Calls are very frequent from those wanting a piece of action with Krishna. The time will come for all of us to celebrate that event when the doors open. Most people are predicting we will be in the pandemic for many months to come.
May the Source be with you!
