SonoMa Ashram
Safe home for children in Varanasi, India
Dear Friends,
Greetings from Varanasi, India, home of our Bal Ashram safe home for children. First and foremost, we wish you a New Year filled with meaning, fulfillment and peace.
Enclosed is a link to a PDF file with the first update of this winter’s three-month stay. Please click here (or the photo) to read more: http://sonomaashram.org/pdf/2009_Jan_11_Update.pdf.

Every morning, the children say prayers and chant various mantras, one of which is the Shanti Mantra, a prayer for peace. Here, they are around a big peepal tree across the river on the future eco-park land, chanting the Shanti Mantra as an offering for world peace.
Bal Ashram is SonoMa Ashram’s primary service project in the holy city of Varanasi, India. Children without parents find a loving home, quality education and nurturing for all aspects of their life. More information about Bal Ashram can be found on our website at: http://sonomaashram.org/bal_ashram.php

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
