Shakti Girls Meet with Gurumaa, 2012
It is said that nothing compares to a human being helping another human being. And standing tall as a live example, mission shakti for the past 12 years ceaselessly continues to empower the needy girls with education.
Being run under the able guidance of revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa, the mission has so far educated thousands of girls with education not only up to 12th standard but also with higher education where ever required.
In order to generate support and awareness, the mission continues to conduct events and programs from time to time. On such event happened on 28th of November, 2012 but this one was unique for this time skakti girls themselves were invited to Rishi Chaitanya Ashram and got the rare chance to meet Gurumaa. Girls from Delhi, Panipat, Ambala, and as far as Kurukshetra turned up with their guardians to avail this rare opportunity of meeting Gurumaa.
The session began with down pouring of compassion and love as Gurumaa decided not to sit on the stage but amongst the girls to listen to their sweet poems, ambitions and day today problems. The joy and happiness of girls had no bounds for everyone could feel that God today had decided to spend a day with them. In fact, girls as small as 8 years old opened their hearts and candidly talked to Gurumaa about their ambitions in life.
On seeing this enthusiasm, Gurumaa enlightened the girls not only about the different avenues of education and related job prospects, but also that it is not enough to just pass the 12th standard but to aim for self dependence. With this, Gurumaa welcomed those girls who have passed the 12th standard to one of her institutes in Kaithal that teaches professional courses like tailoring, beautician etc.
In the end, Gurumaa taught Gayatri Mantra to the girls and asked them all to practice it daily as it will ensue concentration and improve intellect. Gurumaa also presented the girls the book shakti, that will continue to remind them that they are not weak but personification of Durga.
The session ended with girls watching a presentation, a music video on shakti, and a group photo leaving all with memories simply difficult to forget.
