Re: The Secrets of Perfection-Flames
- Dear Doris,
How very nice to read your comments about our visit to that amazing enterprise that
Abarita has given birth and life to. It was a most incredible experience to visit it once
again. About 3 or 4 years ago I had been there on another visit with Sri Chinmoy. This
time I found such advancement and such beauty -- yes, beauty in the remarkable order
that allows such a successful enterprise to thrive.
Doris, I am sorry we did not get the opportunity to chat while I was there but I did love
seeing where you all work so industriously and with such a heart....full of the Supreme's
Blessings. I would love to work there myself. It really inspired me!
Much love, Snehashila
