As an extension of the philosophy and inner discipline that drives Sri Aurobindo Yoga Mandir, we offer you a whole new sponsorship experience: UNIVERSAL SPONSORSHIP
Every parent, father or mother, who comes to live in the ashram with their children, instantly becomes the father or mother of all the children in the ashram. It is the discipline which is asked of them: gradually abandon the privileged relationship to their genetic children to become universal parents who take care in the same way, with the same love and the same dedication, of all the children of the ashram.
It may sound harsh to Westerners accustomed to this privileged family relationship … but over the months that I spend here, I see how rich and enriching this attitude is for all the children of the ashram. They thus become: universal and not privileged in their relation to others and to the children who come.
Chinmaya is a boy born at the ashram.
Today – January 2020 – it is just over a year old.
He has dozens of fathers and mothers. Girls and boys of all ages take care of him as if he were their own child. He’s still in one’s or the other’s arms. He receives a phenomenal amount of love.
It’s the same with all the kids who come to the ashram.
All the older ones have special attention. They are close, supportive, and attentive to these children to allow them to feel their best after the shocks of their past lives and to be able to integrate quickly.
This universality in relationships with others is an incredible force.
It is a wonderful strength given to them in their lives … and one of the great strengths of the ashram, the basis of the joy and harmony that reigns here.
BECOME A SPONSOR or a UNIVERSAL SPONSOR
We invite you to discover the essence of universality, by becoming, economically and internally, the godfather or godmother of ONE child and relationally, the godfather or godmother of ALL the children of the ashram!
We invite you to discover by experience, the essence of karma yoga that has animated Ramchandra for more than thirty years and that all children and young people of the ashram develop and integrate over the years: act for free, give for free, love without return.
INCLUDE THE LAW all SIMPLE of ABUNDANCE
Our sponsorship proposal is also an invitation to practice tithing, this simple and powerful act which consists of donating 10% of its income to works or beings that embellish the world and life on earth. It is a fantastic spiritual discipline that makes it possible to experience and learn the fundamental law of abundance on earth, which allows maintaining the flame of the spirit in itself, the nobility and the greatness of our being… and which is of great creative power.
Practicing tithing inevitably brings, sooner or later, some miracles in our life … even if they are not what we expect!
FINDING THE DEEP SENSE
of the ROLE of SPONSOR and SPONSOR
We invite you to accompany with all your heart, to carry in your conscience and to offer in your prayers, the child of whom you become the godfather or godmother. As Ramchandra practices with children, we invite you to see in him the greatest Beauty, to put before him the Infinite of Love and eternal Light … quite simply, in your interior … to simply accompany him with your best day-to-day thoughts.
We invite you to be an actor of financial abundance with the SAYM to support the education and the instruction of this child… and to receive nothing in return, in the sense of what is usually practiced: letters, drawings, exchanges, gifts, contacts or any special link, even if by chance you came to visit us in Nepal.
There, you will not receive any of this, but so far, this attitude and this approach of universality in your sponsorship will not be without gifts, but they will be of another nature: more interior, more evolutionary … more spiritual in truth. Your soul will be ennobled, your heart enlarged and your relationship to the world more enlarged.
This is the true essence of the role of godfather and godmother.
Nevertheless, you will receive global news from the sponsored children and their evolution.
