Q&A with Br. Dayamrita Chaitanya

Swamiji talks about spring cleaning our lives to make this season an offering to the Holy Mother who will visit us this summer.
Spring is upon us, and it is time for spring cleaning! Typically this means we review our circumstances, get rid of things we don't need, and try to clean up our environment. But although this external cleansing can be quite beneficial, it does not remove the clutter embedded in our minds. So how do we do a spring cleaning in our minds? That's the real question.
Amma says we must first take stock of our life: What are we doing? Does it make any sense? What do we need to keep doing? What do we need to get rid of? On New Year's this year, Amma talked about some questions we need to ask ourselves, including "Am I being steady in my spiritual discipline and practice?" This is key for spiritual aspirants: discipline and steady practice should be a number one priority.

Invited Guests for Amma's PNW visit
We have just received guidance from the MA Center to focus our invited guest program on personnel from one of three categories:
a) Elected local officials, such as the Mayor, Senators and Congresspersons, who are in the area where our centers are located as opposed to where the program is held.
b) Officials from NGOs that have made significant impact locally in areas that align with the mission of Embracing The World, such as environment, education, healthcare, and women's empowerment.
c) Officials from corporations known to support philanthropic causes that align with those of Embracing the World.
Uma Malhotra is the PNW Coordinator for the Invited Guests Program. Please email her with your recommendations at as quickly as possible. Also let her know if you have any personal or other connections with the potential guest which may expedite or facilitate the invitation process.
