Dear Ones,

My husband, Bhima, and I are traveling east on Dec 2-9 to visit my elderly parents in New Hampshire,  along with other family members.

My parents have had serious health concerns this year since the death of my older brother, Thomas, on June 18 this year. My mother had has had multiple myeloma for many years, It has been well managed, but now it has come back. She does not want to undergo intense treatments, and is now in hospice care in the nursing home. Luckily, it is a very nice place. My father is also in the nursing home, due to his heart condition; he is very happy to have a nice room across the hall from my mother.

John and Anne Hostage, Nashua, NH  – ages 96 and 94. – for healing blessings and light in body, mind and soul. 

I had a deep dream about my father many weeks ago in which my father said, “I am in satori, in the bliss.” As he said this, I felt bliss in my spine, and then I woke up.  He is Catholic- so “satori” is not in his normal language in daily life. He has told me that the prayers from Ananda mean so much to him. He appreciates so much that there is a healing prayer ministry to help them, body, mind and soul, at this time. He is also very grateful for the prayers that were sent out for the soul of my brother, Thomas.

My parents are taking this stage of life with grace and love. I am so grateful for your prayers.

Zoom Prayers Continue

The prayers on Zoom continue to deepen, both for the planet and for individuals. The group feels deeply inspired.  You are most welcome to join us…

I will lead the prayers on Tuesday, and Jitendra will lead the prayers on Wednesday. I am blessed that two members of the zoom prayers will cover the zoom prayers on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. Bernard (Bernie) Krippner of Hamiliton New Zealand and Swapnalekha Guha from Calcutta, India. They have steadfastly attended the zoom prayers for the planet several days a week for the last two years, and they have each led the zoom prayers in the past on various occasions when I needed a helping hand.

“Only spiritual consciousness — realization of God’s presence in oneself and in every other living being — can save the world. I see no chance for peace without it. Begin with yourself. There is no time to waste. It is your duty to do your part to bring God’s kingdom on earth.” Paramhansa Yogananda

  1. Thank you Mary for this update. I will continue to pray for you and your parents. My mother passed in 2005 and my father just passed this June. They were both on hospice at the time of their passing and I was very blessed to be with them. I was born in Augusta Maine and lived for a time in Rochester, NH. Have a safe trip. Be well.
