Here is a request from Mataji Prajna, who is responsiple for all our pot-plants inside and outside the ashram:
Jai Gurudev dear friends and spiritual family,
Until now many of you have brought beautiful pot-plants for Swamiji and Shree Peetha Nilaya, beautiful orchids and other flowering plants. They have certainly enriched the temple and the center.
The idea to bring pot-plants instead of cut flowers is also very thoughtful because they are longer lasting than cut flowers and bloom several times. For that we would like to thank all of you whole-heartedly.
However, from now on we kindly ask you not to bring anymore pot-plants as we have reached our maximum capacity. We have 40 orchids and there are also more than enough large plants. It takes a lot of time to look after them and this time pulls us away from our daily seva for Swamiji´s mission.
For that reason we make this request: Please, for the time being, do not bring any orchids or other plants. We will not accept them anymore. On the other hand, cut flowers are always welcome.
Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation.
in the name of Shree Peetha Nilaya
