“The human race has persistently destroyed and perverted Mother Earth’s dharma of love and compassion. Now Mother is warning us to take care not to destroy her.” Swami Premananda
Swami Premananda had a deep love and respect for trees and Mother Nature and he regarded all trees and plants as sentient beings. During his lifetime, Swamiji planted thousands of trees, fruit trees and flowering plants all over the Ashram land and encouraged everyone to join this seva.
Developing human kindness
“Money, property, status, name and fame, a wife, children – all these worldly things are indeed an illusion. The path we need to on is entirely different. If, instead, we carry unnecessary burdens inside us, we will never be able to achieve anything spiritually.
Throw all your sorrows, difficulties, anger, disappointments, failures and worries away and go in search of permanent peace. Go close to God’s feet. Experience the soul that is “You” as infinite…”
Your heart is the source – a poem by Swami Premananda
”That which you long for
Is not what you should desire.
That which you want
Is not what you should acquire.
What you should forget
Is that which you keep in mind…”
Premananda Youth group of Argentina – Our service projects
Service at a day home for disabled youngsters
We still remember the first time we did this service. We were welcomed by eight mentally challenged youngsters. We wrote a story together as a group and had great fun making a collage. On another occasion, we celebrated one of the girls’ birthdays by dancing and playing lots of different games. We often work with the youngsters by making collages in order to identify colours. Sometimes one of our friends joins us and plays guitar and sings with the youngsters.
Premananda Youth group of Poland – Devotion and unity
The heart of our Youth group beats strongly and unity prevails among us. The devoted and constant members who regularly come to the group activities are always very helpful in helping us to organize programmes. We have future projects and are always trying to think of ways to spread Swamiji´s teachings to more and more people.
