Every single day and every moment of my trip has been amazing. I have cried so much on this trip because of the over abundance of love and compassion I receivedâ€¦especially rewarding is being loved and cared for by those who materialistically have the least.
The other day Stacey, Lanie, Laura, Britany and I discovered another organization called Pingalwara. Turns out that two of my dadâ€™s cousins have dedicated their life to this organization. Pingalwara is an organization that was started by Bhagat Puran Singh. It is located by Amritsar very close to one of the most beautiful religious places in the world the Golden Temple.
Bhagat was a man who dedicated his life to working with those that need it most. 95 years ago, a messiah named Ramji Das who later became Bhagat Puran Singh, came into this world. He realized that he received godliness through his love for the human beings.
Some of the people that Pingalwara takes care of include those that are basically abandoned from society, including windows, handicapped children, AIDS patients, sick, old and injured human beings. Today Pinglwara has over 983 patients. Pingalwara has its own treatment clinic, education center, rehabilitation center and much more.
We were able to meet Dr. Inderjit Kaur who is now the current President. We were shown one of the schools that provide free education to those that need it most. We also got to walk around the hostel for the school children as well as the female wards. The school children were more than happy to play with us and show us their rooms. We also spent some time in the female ward. During the time their one of the older mentally challenged ladies hugged me and she began to cry. Iâ€™m not sure why, but some how there was a moment of oneness and love. Another lady kissed my hand. It seems that every time I wish to giveâ€¦.I am the one given to.
â€œHumility is my mace. He dust on the feet of humans I touch is my shield. I am protected by these two weapons; no one can over-power me.â€ Guru Arjan Dev
