About Me  

I'm joining Service Space because ... Losing my sense of "self" through service is what inspires me to dig deeper and serve more. The people in this space, through their incredible acts of service, are a huge source of inspiration for my own service journey!

A good day to me is when ... I can touch someone's life, in some small way, and make them smile from within :)

My hero in life is ...All the people around the world doing small acts of goodness, right where they are right now. Because ultimately, it is these small acts that together will change the world.

My favorite book is ...Journey books like Siddhartha and Tuesdays with Morrie, Books on raising mindful children like Raising Happiness and books about going within like The Power of Now

One thing I'm grateful for is ... When I can tap into that place, deep inside of me, from which I can do things with a pure heart.

Memorable Awakin Circle In London With Masami And Maki

Jun 23, 2017, 2 comments, 14 smiles In London, last Friday, we were deeply honoured to welcome Masami-san to our home for her first ever Awakin Circle, alongside her big-hearted, always-smiling daughter, Maki-san!  Back in 2010, just weeks after Nipun's first time visiting the Saionji family in Tokyo, Deep and I were blessed to meet up with Yuka (Masami-san's youngest daughter) and visit the Fuji Sanctuary, where the Symphony of Peace Prayers is held each year.  We were completely blown away by the love with which the space was created and held, and the deepest intention with which prayers have been offered by thousands of people over so many years.  And of course we had a joyful time connecting with Yuka and learning all about her family's lifetime of service.
