    Catholic Mexican) shared that he has been clean from addictions past 2 years but before that he was heavily addicted, mainly alcoholism, and has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous gatherings to this day, including serving others now.

Canada (Vancouver and Toronto): 8 lectures and 2 informal gatherings were held in two cities of Canada. In Toronto, one of the new curious seemed like a readymade seeker. He has intense desire, understood many concepts and is rather humble, pleasant and joyful. He said that he wanted to come to each and every SSRF lecture held there and just try to take in as much as possible. He felt that he was glued to SSRF (he attended all lectures thereafter).

“Your website served as a Guru for me. I have read almost all your website and watched several videos of SSRF here as well as on Youtube. I came across your website through Google search. Your website influenced me to chant ‘ Wahe Guru’ as i belong to Sikh religion”.
-Mr. Harpreet Singh, Ludhiana

“A few months back (Dec 2013) my grandfather passed away which made me really sad. In 16 years of my life, I have never experienced such a situation before. He is such a kind person. Days passed, but I was not completely able to accept what has happened. At that point, I wanted to know what happens to one after their death. So I surfed it on the Internet and that’s how I came across SSRF. On reading the article on “What happens after death” I was able to understand what was going around me but still at times I wish that he was alive. Then frequently I started visiting this website and started reading quite a few articles put up here. I like this website so much. Its Awesome !!!!”

All his life he has been making efforts to have learning attitude as well as improve himself in all aspects of daily life. His daughter, Ms Ana was getting intense thoughts about her father’s qualities lately and has written a file about many of his qualities which show in his day to day actions towards the family members.

Such persons have no attraction for Maya (the great illusion) they perform action but they don’t have expectations.

  • 4 new seekers from the African state of Malawi attending SSRF Public satsang from refugee camp: During this month, 4 news seekers joined SSRF login and Public satsangs from the African state of Malawi. They are refugees, living in a refugee camp and having only bare facilities such as shelter, food and water. Despite these odds, they are eager to practice Spirituality and are supporting each other. Every Sunday, they join on one Skype from a public computer to hear the satsang and participate. As the Internet connection is sometimes poor, they still attend by writing in the Skype chat their experiences and keeping regular communication over e-mail. Each of the seekers had various spiritual experiences of receiving protection from God, being cared for despite difficult circumstances of life. They are persevering and doing regular chanting and spiritual remedies. This shows that with desire, everyone can practice Spirituality and make spiritual progress in adverse circumstances also.

  • “Thank you once more for helping me. I am honored and grateful to have your guidance. The advice you and SSRF are providing on the internet is vital to people everywhere. I have been busy reading the articles on SSRF website and tried the spiritual healing remedy with the rock salt. I notice a big difference in how I feel, what I think and how I act even after doing it once for 15 minutes. I will continue to do it once a day as I am able. I am learning a lot and am very appreciative that you and SSRF have helped me begin my spiritual journey. Thank you for steering me closer to God. This is an aspect of my life which I have been lacking for far too long. Finally I have received some honest advice on the matter. Sincerely” – Mr. McGuire, USA
