Most of us pray. Some chant slokas, some do it in silence. Our children in our hostels too, enjoy celebrating the myriad festivals through prayers and pooja’s. This also helps them to come closer to their own culture and values.
Swamiji had said, “One has to be at the right place at the right time to achieve anything significant. One cannot will it to happen, but one can pray to make it happen. The fact that we pray is wonderful because it reflects an acceptance on your part of your limitations and the existence of a limitless source.” In the photograph: Children of AIM for Seva Free Student Hostels in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu celebrating Ayudha and Saraswati Pooja.
