This assistance is available during the first year of separation from the SRF order. If you know someone who might qualify and who might benefit from this program, please have them contact us at:

OM Love in the Sky Above Mother Center

The above photo was taken on Thursday of Convocation, 2004. Devotees, many whom have served all week, serve to take down the tents, move chairs and other activities at Mother Center after the pilgrimages end. After the activities were completed, there was a service in the chapel. After the service, as devotees were leaving, this appeared in the sky. It was also above the Bonaventure. Originally it said "MOM" with a heart. Mom... Divine Mother, Sri Daya Mata... our own mothers... all mothers...
