To Serve Nature

Here at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama, Rishikesh, we have just completed a nine-days international children's and youth's meditation retreat. Over 150 children from different countries participated---together with 75 'guardians.' The children speaking Korean, Dutch, Italian, German etc. had no problem in developing loving communication. It was one single family. The details of the happy events can be read in the newsletter of our AHYMSIN at

One ten year old child has written me (in Italian), translated as follows:

My name is Daniele. I am a great lover of all nature, be it animals, plants or rocks. I know that our earth is suffering because we humans are destroying it. I wish to know: How can I possibly help Nature so that it may be saved and returned to the state of paradise that it was in before?

There are several research studies which Dr. Telles presently co-directs at SRSG.
