Visitors at the site of the new Sri Ramana Matriculation SchoolFebruary Was a Month of Many Visitors

On February 2nd ...

Our school was visited by Mr. Ramana Baba and his spiritual group from England: Ms. Glenny Latham, Ms. Boldey Black, Ms. Vivienne Cringhton, Ms. Lucy Forsyth, Mr. Nick Holsworth, Ms. Suzt Castleman, Ms. Christine Hurst, Ms. Bobel Milner and Ms. Maggie Hall. We gave a warm welcome to them at the new school site at 10:30 a.m. They toured the site. One of the visitors inquired, if the total fund was available, how much time would be needed to finish the building project? Mr. Karunanithi replied that at least 6 months would be required. Together, we chanted the Gayatri Mantra 108 times.

We returned to the school and visited the classrooms. Our guests were impressed with the scholastic brilliance of the rural children, who also performed a cultural programme.

Watering plants in Sri RamanasramOn February 6th ...

At 10:00 a.m., fifteen of our High School students went to Sri Ramanasram to water plants on the way to Skandashram. After worshipping Bhagavan, they watered till 2.00 p.m. The Ashram provided lemon rice for lunch. The children gained good experience with nature from this activity.

On February 10th ...

From Scotland came Ms. Karina Stewart and her yoga students: Ms. Susan Begg, Ms. Andrea Frasel, Ms. Margaret Percival, Ms. Gemma Emslie, Ms. Julia Ann Arnott, Ms. Vivian Wraae, Ms. Morag McBain, Ms. Susan Gilvear and Ms. Fiona McGregor. This year, through 108 repetitions of the Sun Salutation exercise (Surya Namaskara) with her group, Ms. Karina raised 4,450 Pounds that will go toward constructing our new school building and student sponsorships. We all thanked them on this special occasion.

The group was very happy to see the Lord Ganesha temple work in progress at the new school site. We all chanted the Gayatri Mantra 108 times to complete the school building work as early as possible.

Mr. Mike Horsey from USA joined with Ms. Karina's group to visit our school. They toured the classrooms and were excited at seeing the talent of the students. They conversed with sponsored students; offered sponsorships to some who did not yet have funding; and committed to raising more funds towards our school. The children performed dances for them, and, at 3:00 p.m., prizes were awarded by Mr. Ramana Baba and Ms. Karina and her group to the dancers and the teachers who choreographed the performance.

On Feruary 11th ...

Our Trust arranged a Get Together Event to entertain our friends from Scotland. The event was held at the Hotel Arunai Anandha at 5:30 p.m. Ms. Karina and her group perfomed yoga for a happy life, including some very difficult postures. At 6:30 p.m., Kalaimamani Mr. Madavapeddy Murthy and his group from Chennai performed Indian Classical (kuchupudi) dance to our friends. Our friends enjoyed the performance very much. Dinner followed the performance.
