Recently I had the good fortune of being part of a Black Lotus Meditation session that we conducted in Mumbai for cancer patients. Incidentally this place began as an act of kindness to provide shelter to people coming from all over the country & has now become a huge facility.
Many patients came forward with their stories of acts of kindness & how they had become a family. What struck me was their immense faith, belief in the divine in the face of pain & trying conditions. A particularly frail woman narrated how she was so sick while undertaking an ardous 24 hour journey..that she vomitted profusely & could barely make it to Mumbai..but she had full faith in her God & knew she would make it!!!
Another young man from Assam shared how he was at wits end when he was told that 2 lakhs would be required for his treatment… when a chance chat on FB with his school teacher who told him ” don’t worry it will be arranged”…gave him the courage & hope to go ahead in a new city.
Eventually many pooled in & raised the money he needed. He now helps other people by sharing all the information regarding various NGOs, subsidies, benefits etc.
