Extract of a speech by an Ashram resident at the Bhumi Shakti Conference

Speaking about environmental issues, Swami pointed out that “human beings’ wrong policies, especially when it comes to pollution and environmental degradation, not only affect humanity badly, but also the animals and plants of this planet,” even though they carry no own responsibility for this. He said that, “human beings have to understand that it’s time to take action and to come to a common understanding to save the world and make way for better world policies.”

Speech by an Ashram resident at the Bhumi Shakti Conference

Namaskaram to everyone… and this means, “I worship the higher Self within each of you.” 
This is a conference about Mother Earth and that means it’s also about us. If we could just understand ourselves better we would be more connected to this planet Earth and to all the other natural kingdoms that live on it. 
People have given our planet names such as Earth, Gaia, Gea, Demeter, Cibels, Panchamama, Terra, Bhumi Devi, to name just a few. These names – which since the beginning of time different civilizations have given this planet – show that they recognized her as a mother goddess, an intelligent organism of giving, of nurturing, of fertility and compassion, an intelligent organism that is also connected with other planets and stars…

From March 2 to 4 a Chandi homam will be conducted in Sri Premananda Ashram. A Chandi homam is a sacred fire ritual for Goddess Chandi.
It’s considered the ultimate homam for Devi, the universal Divine Mother. This Chandi homam will be performed specifically to benefit Mother Earth. Swamiji said Mother Earth is very unbalanced now due to the selfishness of human beings who have depleted the Earth’s resources for their own personal gain. By conducting this yagam we hope to enforce within us the wisdom, love, compassion and courage necessary to take care of our precious and holy planet so that we can help restore balance and harmony…

By Rosa & Sergio, Centre of Unity Premananda, Italy

This is about our celebration of Swami Premananda’s birthday in the Centre of Unity Premananda, in Amelia, Italy.

We wanted to be able to find at least a couple of roses in the garden to put on Swamij’s padukas but we had little hope of doing so because lately the weather had been very bad, the temperature had fallen near zero and on the night before the celebration a heavy rain began to fall that continued well into the next morning. When it finally stopped I went out to try to retrieve some plants that would now be completely soaked, in order to decorate the altar and Swamiji’s chair. However, I was absolutely astounded to discover a garden full of roses! …
