My son’s friend, a Canadian girl, wanted to do puja on Ganesh Chaturthi(a festival to venerate Lord Ganesha). I was sure she would not be able to do it on her own without someone helping her in this maiden task. So I sent her a video to make a Ganesh idol, using a dough prepared from turmeric and all-purpose flour, with subtitles in English. I also sent her, the list of things she could buy, and audio with a priest describing the puja procedure and chanting the necessary mantras. With all this guidance and help, she performed the puja successfully. She also drew a beautiful Rangoli. She was extremely happy to do this all on her own and sent me the photographs. It gave us great joy that we could make her happy.
We can be kind in so many different ways.
