Guiding Light of The Month

OH, let Light be poured on all the earth and Peace inhabit every heart. . . Almost all know only the material life heavy, inert, conservative, obscure; their vital forces are so tied to this physical form of existence that, even when left to themselves and outside the body, they are still solely occupied with these material contingencies that are yet so harassing and painful. . . - The Mother

Along the Way… The August 2014 Walk

The 2ndof August started off with a slight drizzle.  That was the day of the Sri Aurobindo Society, Singapore’s, monthly walk. This time, the venue for the walk was at Botanical Gardens. Upon arriving there, the slight drizzle had turned into a mild shower, delaying our walk. Due to the rain, we started our warm-ups in the building (conducted by Saurab Uncle). Just as we had finished our warm ups, the rain had subsided and we were able to begin our walk.

The rain earlier had caused the area around the Botanical Gardens to be much cooler, making the walk more enjoyable. Being early morning, the surroundings of the Gardens was very peaceful and calm. There was no doubt that everyone had enjoyed the walk thoroughly.

The brunch was held at Uncle Rao’s and Shailaja Aunty’s house. After the opening meditation, there were the reading of prayers and birthdays of the month, followed by the closing meditation. The brunch/lunch prepared by the hosts was very scrumptious and filling.

I definitely enjoyed this month’s walk and I am definitely looking forward to next month’s walk. Can’t wait!!!!!
