Dear friends, We are happy to share with you another amazing story about the Seva activities of Sumit from Jammu, who this time conducted seven consecutive days of Seva, also called Saptah Seva.
OM SAI RAM
Sumit from Jammu is a very innocent and dedicated soul. He was introduced to Mohanji only 5 months ago. This connection, however, was made at a very deep level. What attracted Sumit to Mohanji was the message of selfless service, unconditional love and understanding of life.
December is a month of extreme cold in Jammu. Sumit could not tolerate seeing poor people on the streets and in the railway stations, freezing in the cold due to lack of adequate warm clothing.
Sumit felt the pain of the slum dwellers, especially children and the elderly, huddled around small fires, struggling to keep warm. The message of Ammucare – ‘Help the Helpless’ resonated with Sumit deeply and motivated him further. He had already distributed blankets and food in the railway stations and slums twice in November. However, this did not satisfy him. Touched by the need of the helpless, Sumit decided to do more.
For a few days around Shree Dattatraya Jayanti (20th Dec 2010), Sumit decided to distribute blankets and food. Indeed, what better way to honor the Masters of this great tradition, the Siddhas known for their caring and unassuming nature, despite their amazing spiritual powers. Mohanji called this activity ‘Selfless Saptah’ (7 days of selfless activity) and promised Sumit that his presence would be felt during the distribution.
With full surrender and great inspiration, Sumit thus carried out this Saptah of blanket and food distribution in various slum areas of Jammu from Thursday Dec 16th to Thursday Dec 23rd, 2010. The contractor, Mr Bharat, helped Sumit identify the slums in Jammu.
Sumit and his friends just dashed into the slums and covered all those they found with blankets. They entered houses and covered shivering children with blankets and woolen caps.
The photos speak for themselves, telling the tale of selflessness, purity and motivation. Moreover, these images show explicitly the Master’s presence and guidance. This is yet another example of how Mohanji operates!
The Ammucare Charitable Trust and BTW family appreciate and applaud Sumit and his friends Ravinder Sing, Umesh, Ashwini, Vipin, Wani, Rajesh, Tarun and Dheeraj for all the efforts they put into this pure, selfless act. Many thanks are also extended to the shop owners for their kindness and generosity, expressed by providing the blankets at a reasonable cost. Everyone’s contribution counts. Imagine the beauty of this world if all agreed to play their part as Divine instruments…
