Please help us go green & lower our steep electric bills. We are currently talking to a few solar panel vendors trying to figure out the best and most cost-effective way to install solar panels. As for now, the bids we have been getting are around $30,000. Donations are tax-deductible and will be gratefully accepted.
Life becomes fruitful and sweet when we establish an intimate relationship with God that permeates through our daily activities. Ma is mine. She is always with me. Fear and anxiety may come but they’ll pass quickly like clouds driven by strong wind. To quote a wise man: “Don’t tell God how big your problem is. Tell your problem how big your God is.”
We must feel the Divine Presence in our daily life. Mere intellectual acceptance that God exists cannot hold us during turbulent times. Feel the Divine Mother with your entire being. Ma is everywhere all the time, but She is most accessible where devotees congregate. That’s why temples are important. A temple is like a bank where many devotees deposit their devotion and their prayers. The devotees’ love makes the place holy.
Kali Mandir exists because of Ma and Her devotees. We all depend on each other.
There are many ways of getting involved and becoming part of Ma’s worship.
