Plans are prepared for this world, their outlines and details all unknown to us. We are here to play our part in the drama, to be the instruments for the work and to witness as the plans unfold and take share for the welfare of all.
The Basketball Wave Project is one of those plans taking shape and I am happy to present it to you!
This new adventure started in early May at Taipei jagrti with more than 15 boys from the NTNU Men's Basketball team (and one sister rhythmic gymnastic athlete too). Every Monday they attend the classes on Yoga, Meditation, Baba's philosophy and the Ananda Marga lifestyle.
And here we are, two months later, in the middle of a project with the vision to let the athletes gain more confidence in themselves, discover the beauty of the inner world and experience the joy of selfless service. With the dedication of their head coach Mahesha and his assistant as well as Candana, Cidatma and myself these young people become examples for other athletes to make further steps in the search for the Divine, while maintaining a proper balance in what they do and are passionate about.
It is my pleasure to share with you that yesterday we had our first Basketball Wave Service Activity in the School for Mentally Challenged Children in Linkou where we have been doing service for the last 3 years.
The NTNU boys gave a wonderful basketball show that delighted the children, their teachers and even the office staff! Jennifer, the gymnast girl, presented a rhythmic dance on kiirtan music. Everyone enjoyed the blissful and magic atmosphere with such a universal family feeling among us all!
Recognizing our contribution to their children the school's principal presented A'nanda Ma'rga Taiwan with an appreciation letter yesterday.
With the right intention, aiming to establish a universal society by His Grace everyone gets benefited. Yet dreams come true only when the Lord so allows.
Let this blissful Basketball Wave spread to all corners of this island and beyond as a source of inspiration to live a life of growth and contribution.
