|WHAT:||“Mommy, you are a fairy,” I said. My mother laughed like tinkling bells. “I am serious, Mother. You know everything.” “My child, I try to answer as best as I can. When you grow older, you will not need me,” she said. “No, Mom, I will always need you. Nothing can change that,” I said. Her words echo in my heart as I look at the blue sky: “Dear daughter, nothing remains the same except the vast blue sky.” It has been ten years since I lost my fairy. Mom, you were wrong about one thing: I still need you.

Maitri Circle over the weeks has taken many forms and inspirations. This week we are moved and inspired to take this platform to share our stories of the force that has created, nurtured, and strengthen us at every step of our life. Let’s come together, hold hands, and send our prayers, smiles, good wishes to every mother we have known.
Format for this week:
Vadodara Maitri Circle will be an evolving online space for us to engage, share, spread joy, and rise through the collective consciousness.
While these virtual gatherings are a slight departure from our regular Awakin Circles conducted in a physical space, the core intentions here remain the same which is to come together and hold space for each other and share in a context of stillness, community, and service. Of course, with a dash of Masti for garnish!!
