|Spiritual scholars meet President on eve of three-day workshop|
|Friday, 03 August 2012 22:13|
THE President and other members of the Sri Satya Sai Baba Organisation of Guyana paid a courtesy
call on President Donald Ramotar on the eve of what promises to be a meaningful workshop session with youths from Guyana, the Caribbean and South America titled “Divine Showers”.
Youth participants from neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Curacao and Jamaica have started arriving for the three-day engagement, according to Abhi Kaul, a member of the organisation from Canada.
The workshop will take the form of presentations by renowned speakers who will share their experiences with the participants. There will also be interactive sessions during which the views and perspectives of the youths can be heard.
Day three of the session will take the form of the service project, where the delegation will embark on a medical outreach at a night shelter in Ruimveldt, offering counselling, social awareness and education, and free medical checkups. The invitation is open to all, according to Kaul.
The agenda of activities was shared with President Ramotar during a courtesy call, and the facilitators left satisfied with the visit.
“It has been a joy to have been given the opportunity by the President to be able to meet with him. He has been extremely receptive of what we have told him and we came out full of hope from that meeting,” President, Central Council of the organisation’s Guyana arm, Bhagwan Narwani, told the Government Information Agency (GINA).
Volunteer Dr. David Cornsweet, from the United States, was impressed with the people-centred character of President Ramotar which he said aligns with the mandate of the non-profit organisation.
The visiting facilitators, all followers of their mentor and spiritual teacher, Bhagwan Sri Satya Sai Baba, pledge allegiance to the founding principle “Love All serve All, Service to Man is Service to God, Help Ever Hurt Never”.
Among them is Dr. Sunny Anand, a physician at the St Jude children’s hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, which he said has in the past provided medical treatment to cancer patients from Guyana.
