Dear reader, Swami had a restful night and is doing well. There is absolutely no room for any anxiety and all indications are that Swami would soon be back with us in the Ashram.

Meanwhile, let us all pray to Swami, this time not for ourselves but for His physical well-being.  Swami is above the body; yet, out of infinite compassion for humanity, He has donned one so as to guide us.

Right now, humanity is passing through all the crises it is capable of creating for itself.  This is when we need Bhagawan most in His physical aspect and it is our duty wherever we are, to respectfully pray to Him, for Him.

Thank you. Sairam.
