Jai Karunamayi Amma's Children!

Since 2006 when Amma declared that She wanted to have an Ashram in Georgia - Her first Ashram outside of India - things have been happening at breakneck speed.

Initially, a handful of Georgia devotees accepted Her charge and moved quickly to take all the steps involved in fulfilling it.  Each of these devotees had a long and loving relationship with Amma, fed and nurtured by being with Her for all of Her Georgia visits; visits to other cities in the United States as she toured each year; and by their own visits to see Her in India.

The devotees' first step, with the grace of Divine Mother, was to find a suitable site for the Ashram.  Through a series of blessed and miraculous events they acquired a large parcel of beautiful Georgia farmland which also conforms to some basic important principles and requirements of Vaastu.  The SRIM Center Board has at this time changed the name of the Ownership from that of the Georgia Devotees who were instrumental to its purchase, to that of Sri Karunamayi Research Institute of Meditation (SRIM).

The next step that Sri Karunamayi, Divine Mother has charged her children with is to develop the nucleus of the site as the SRIM Center proper.  In Her brilliant wisdom and in Her love for Her children - She does not want to overwhelm us with the hugeness of the overall vision for this land - She has recommended segmenting the site so it's easier to evolve.  The nucleus, as we said above, is to be the SRIM Meditation and Research Center.  The remainder of the land will have another but related name and the entire campus will all contain and present the Loving Spirit and cohesive vision of Amma.

As soon as possible - as soon as we - Her Children - have raised and contributed the financial resources to grade the land on which the SRIM Center and Amma's Georgia home will be sited - we will go ahead.  The first thing to be done is to delineate and grade this plot to be in attunement with movements of the sun and the planets as well as the magnetic properties of the earth - that is, to conform to Vaastu Shastra.  After the land is graded and the other site work is done, we will proceed with construction of Amma's home.  It is Her intention to spend more time at the Ashram each year once Her home is built.  We are truly, truly blessed to have this Ashram and home of Divine Mother in our very midst.  It is up to us, Amma's beloved children, to earn this blessing by raising funds - our own and from Amma's children all over the United States and the rest of the World.

The SRIM Center Board is currently preparing statements for release which will delineate and break down the current expenses for the SRIM Center so we can all perform the loving action of financially supporting it. 

They will also prepare statements delineating the cost of acquiring and developing the SRIM Center site and for building Amma's home so She can fulfill her vision of spending more time in the United States and on evolving this Research and Meditation Center. 

The progress towards achieving the goals of earthwork and landscape and building Amma's home will be tracked on a continual basis so that all of Her children can clearly see what the current need is and how fund raising and moving towards the goal are progressing.

If you have any questions or comments on this material, please contact the Srim Board Members or pull them aside and talk to them when you see them out and about.  The board members are listed in an earlier Srim Center Website Article.  Please check it out.

Jai Karunamayi!!!
