wonderful quotes you post-they are wonderful to read. I read the
poems out to my Centre last night at meditation and we all got
inspired to do activities in multiples of four. As well as
individual self-transcending activities such as running/ walking
40 minutes, doing pushups, reading 40 poems a day etc. for 40
days, we are going to bring a 40-item prasad next week and sing 40
songs during meditation! See you at Celebrations. Love, Devaki
