Portland Bhagavad Gita Class
During these stressful times, Gita studies is a powerful way to help calm the mind and remind us of our essential wholeness. It is a timeless dialogue between Lord Krishna (our higher Self) and Arjuna (our ego). Amma has this to say about the Gita:
“My Dear Children, Bhagavad Gita is the essence of all the Vedas and its message is for the entire humanity. It is the Lord’s message to the whole world, given to Arjuna as a proxy, who in the midst of adverse circumstances was completely unnerved being at a loss to discern his Dharma.” “--The purpose of learning Gita is to become Sri Krishna.”
Each Sunday in Portland we dive into the timeless wisdom of Sri Krishna’s words to Arjuna and gain knowledge about the field of dharma, sadhana, and Moksha. All are welcome. Bring a receptive mind, an open heart, and a copy of the Gita if you have one. If not, no worries. We have extra copies.
Our next Gita class will be on Sunday, September 8. We will begin Chapter 6. People are welcome to begin anytime.
When Every Sunday at 10:15 am - 12:30 pm. We begin with Vyruthi Homa.

Garden to Table Benefit Dinner
Garden style=
The GreenFriends of the Maltby property put their imaginations together in early August to create a full-course dinner of entrees, side dishes, condiments, hors d’oeuvres, and beverages from their garden's produce. The meal was a benefit to raise money for next year's garden and was attended by 21 guests.
The dinner was served on the deck overlooking the bountiful "Devi's Garden,” the kitchen garden that Amma had blessed when she had visited in previous years. The evening began with appetizers and beverages, and much photo-taking of the beautiful spread of foods. This was followed by a tour of the garden by Visuddhi, the resident master gardener whose devotion has been nurturing the garden for four years now. Over 100 species of vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs are growing in the densely prolific mandala.
