Mohini’s 18 October 2017 Birthday Wish

October 18, 2017
Namaste and a Happy Diwali to everyone!
.
Diwali is the festival to celebrate the triumph of Light over dark and is a good day to spend time on your inner spiritual journey. Today is also a great day to chant SHREEM BRZEE, the ultimate money mantra.
 
Dr Pillai’s US-based charity, Tripura Foundation takes care of 4,000 less privileged HoPE Center children daily. Each year, for Diwali, Tripura Foundation makes each HoPE Center children feel very loved by buying them a gift of a new set of clothes. Each dress/shirt set costs US$8 (S$10.50) (including the tailoring costs).
 
Mohini’s birthday is today and she wanted to take this opportunity to make an appeal to you to give to Tripura Foundation to support their Diwali 2017 project. 
 
 Here is Mohini in her own words:
Hi everyone,
This year my birthday, 18th October 2017, is the same day as Diwali.  Diwali is the Festival of Lights here in India, and it signifies the end of darkness, greed and poverty.  In India, it is the happiest day of the year for children, as it is their “Christmas”.  People receive gifts of new clothes and wear the clothes on Diwali to symbolize a new beginning.
.
Diwali is an important day for me because there are 4040 children here at our HoPE Centers in India, and it’s my responsibility to give all of them a new set of clothes.  For my children, this new set of clothes is very precious, as they come from the worst circumstances of poverty and experience suffering of every kind.  Everyone loves gifts, but to my children, this gift is truly a symbol of HoPE.

To give my children the Diwali gift of new clothes on this day means everything to me, as it is the highlight of joy in their entire year.

I’m asking for your help in giving my children their Diwali gift.  Every $10 donated provides a new set of clothes for my children.  If you all could join me in giving $10 for a Diwali gift for one of my children, it is certainly the greatest gift of their year and the greatest Birthday gift for me.

Every dollar helps so much – thank you for giving what you can and truly spreading the Festival of Lights with my children who deserve it the most.

Love, Mohini

For those of you who have greatly benefited from Dr Pillai’s teachings and grace, this is a good time to give back to Dr Pillai.
