Hari Om Shri Gurubhyo Namah!
In February 2017, I started conducting The Geeta Study classes. The study group consists of 16 members who meets every other week.
Our guiding book is the commentary The Holy Geeta, by Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanda.
All knowledge comes from Him, all mistakes are my own.

It is my hope that this knowledge will enlighten your path to Self Realisation.
Pranams to all!

Our 7th event was a Reiki Level 2 training on 4th October at the Ram Mandir hall in Parklands. Three matatus (buses) brought them, 123 in number …. Children, teachers and parents of Mukuru Outreach Academy form the Mukuru Sanai slums of Nairobi , and a few infants and toddlers with them! They were welcomed and given bananas and made to settle in the room.
The children said the school prayer which was nothing but the 5 Reiki principles they had learned in Level 1! And they had another surprise; They recited a poem on Reiki which had been written by their headmaster Enock, together with all the actions! We were bowled over! They shared how Reiki had helped them heal their and their families aches and pains, and that they were excited to move on to Level 2.
Introduction of the symbols followed and then the attunement, self- healing, some distant healing and then lunch, which they ate heartily. After lunch, it was becoming apparent that it was difficult to teach the large numbers as one group, so we divided them into 4 groups for the rest of the teaching.
They grasped everything nicely, although the parents had a difficult time understanding the training because of the language barrier. But overall, the session went well, in spite of a few challenges of the sound echoing in the hall, and the delayed arrival of lunch.
We finished by 3.15 pm. After reminders to continue healing themselves and others and to do distant healing, Reiki certificates and ‘Goody bags’ containing note books, a pot of Vaseline and biscuits were given to them, before we bid them kwaheri (good bye).
LHSG continues to be grateful to the Universe and God for these seva opportunities and reiterate our pledge to continue uplifting the poor and needy of our society.
The Sevaks who did a sterling job of this seva were Monica Gokaldas, Punita Acharya, Mamta Advani Sheela Shah, Dhwani Haria, Cooky Vora, Shanthi Shetty, Sharanya Rao, Lata Kanji, Ola (Naomi), Neha Shah, Nina Sehgal, Amy Galland, Bindi Shah, Bubbles Dhadialla, Pratima Dutt, Safura Hassan, Shalini Srivastav, and myself Kamal Tolia.
Thank you goes to the Ram Mandir Committee for allowing us the use of their hall. Special thanks also goes to Monica Gokaldas for her hard work to make sure it all went well and for liaising with the management before, during and after this event.
Many thanks for reading. Please do read below and watch the videos that say it all so effectively.

The Camp was a great seva opportunity for me as this came up during the fortnight dedicated to the ancestors as per the Hindu calendar. I was happy to be dedicating my seva towards my ancestors and their memory.
The Ram Mandir function Hall was spacious enough to accommodate the children, parents and teachers that came from Mukuru Sinai. Despite a short delay in arrival of the learners we progressed well ahead with teaching them the reiki symbols and the various aspects of distance healing, the significance of Reiki Box, Group Healing, and Mother Earth.
I am grateful to this seva opportunity as I learnt a big lesson myself. The children who were in my group appeared to have lack of focus but eventually displayed effective healing knowledge and Reiki Flow. Some of them wanted to display perfection by adding their school and grade along with their names on their Reiki Boxes and some of the healing requests in their envelopes were amazingly smart. They wanted good grades in exams, they wanted good health for their parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts and even wrote names of people whom they wanted to see in cordial relationships.
This taught me not to under estimate anyone by mere appearance and to understand their language barrier as well. I also appreciated that the situations they asked healing for were not as materialistic as people often ask for. I thank Kamal Tolia for conceiving this idea of teaching them all Reiki level 2 and empowering them further.

Our level 2 Mukuru camp was as always a beautiful opportunity to serve, share , learn and teach!
The Reiki poem that the children recited touched my heart deeply. Their effort to memorize,practice and execute it was perfect.
Empowered with Reiki they have learnt that now they can help people around them in many different ways even if they can’t do so financially.
My deepest gratitude to the universe for bringing them to us and to Kamalji for teaching us firm determination on the path of Sewa!

I’m full of gratitude to have been part of another successful Reiki II camp. The challenges were met with committed perseverance to impart the lessons of Reiki with complete faith. The children were well behaved and commendable for applying themselves to learn and understand the different points of Reiki II. My gratitude to my Lotus sisters who were responsible for all the back ground and also to the team work of today that was superb. Kamalji, gratitude to you always for your valuable guidance to every detail. May we be blessed with more opportunities to spread the goodness of Reiki. Lnl

Little Hands of Reiki
A sweet seva done by our LHSG India, Mumbai member Kirti Kamdar. She attuned young Zenia Jain to Reiki level 1.
The world has become enriched with a little healing angel!

My neighbour’s daughter, Zenia Jain, 5 n half years old always comes to me for healing if she has pain anywhere and she feels good after it and she imitates me in her house.
For example : if her dad or mom has pain she will keep both her hands on that place and say that she is doing healing so I thought of teaching her Reiki.
Today, 29th September I ask her what I should teach her …. Reiki, she said …. if anyone has pain then she can do healing and cure that. So I taught her Reiki level 1 and she did very well. We both did chakra healing after attunement and she followed me very well.
After the attunement I asked her what she saw ….. she said she saw God and blue light. I asked which God she saw and she said that she doesn’t remember but it was God, so I didn’t force her.
I shall do 21 days self healing with her so that she finishes 21 days practice and will make her do healing to others as well
I taught her to pray before doing healing n say “God please help me to do healing” and after healing is done I taught her to say “Thank you God for helping me to do healing”. And she did that also.
The next day, 30th September, Zenia did healing today to my friend for pain in calf and she felt the energy. She also did healing to my daughter Maitri on her upper back and Maitri said its very effective!

An old lady wailing and crying …. Another old lady smiling at us …. While yet another few old ladies lying in bed, some sleeping and lost to the world, some staring vacantly at us or the wall … these are the sights that greeted LHSG UK members Lekha Quilter and Mala Tolia and I as we entered The Gayasingh Ashram (old peoples home) in Mauritius on Friday 21st March.
Once again with the kind help of Dr Ritesh (chairman), Pravin Boodhun (Treasurer) and Yasni Bowaneedin (Meghan)Puttoo (Public Relations) of Unitey Mauritius we had been introduced to the management of Gayasingh Ashram for elderly women, abandoned women and those that were suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. A section of it also dealt with Downs Syndrome adults.
We set about giving Reiki to the poor distraught lady that was crying and crying, not co-operating with the nurses. After the Reiki treatment, I hugged her and gave her love and healing. Heart to heart healing. The result was magical. Within five minutes she settled down quiet and happy.
We proceeded to give Reiki to the other sad ladies either on a chair or as they lay in their beds. Our hearts went out to them …. To be spending their twilight years in an old peoples home instead of being surrounded with the love and care of family …..
We were taken to other wards too, that housed young abused girls, some with babies and elderly women in various stages of dementia. They loved the Reiki and our special healing touch. Some shed tears. One of the girls who had ‘lost her mind and her voice’ after she had been repeatedly abused by her drug addicted father was brought to me for Reiki. As I gave her the treatment, I felt her physical and emotional pain. The treatment finished, no words were exchanged, but her tight hug of thanks said it all. Later, she came up to me, holding out a biscuit from her little packet of tea time biscuits ……. I took the biscuit. One of the sweetest expression of love I have seen!
A lot of Love healing flowed from our hearts to one and all in this ashram during the Reiki seva which went on from 10.30 am to 4 pm during which all in the Ashram including the care givers and staff were treated, with a break for lunch which we ate together with them.
I also got to witness the chanting of the Gayatri Mantra by the more able residents before sitting down to lunch, which has been captured on video.
Many thanks go to Nancy, the Head Nurse who patiently showed us around all the wards of the Ashram (old age home) and elaborated on the condition of each resident.
We donated Rs 1000 which was added to our personal family donations to make a total of Rs 5000 (Approx US$ 150) which was used to buy much needed items like Weetabix, Cereal powder and Vaseline lotion.
Please do read on for Mala’s account and please do watch the videos below.

The third healing opportunity took place in an Establishment called the Gayasingh Ashram in Port Louis, capital of Mauritius
This was a live in centre for the infirmed elderly, abused and mentally ill residents
The entire place was very clean and tidy. The residents were well looked after from a hygiene point
We were shown around by Nancy, who was the Manager there.She is also a Reiki master!
As we went into the dormitory for the severely afflicted elders, we saw a lady who was screaming as if in distress.
All 3 of us, Kamalbhabhi, Lekha and myself activated the highest sacred space around her , then gave her distant healing and then hands on when she had calmed down enough to touch.
She then completely calmed down altogether
Kamalbhabhi gave her her coloured crystal bracelet because she wanted it and she seemed very content and with it.
We were told later that her family had left her at the ashram after taking away all her possessions …… what a sad world.
So she was also craving love and attention
Having activated the sacred space for the entire centre and each individually separately, the atmosphere changed from downright depressing to very jolly and light all over.
We gave healing to each and every individual in that building, including the carers there. Even the carers took a lot of healing, due to the stressful demands of the upkeep of the residents, understandably.
There were a couple of 16 year old girls there with 2 babies; they had fallen pregnant after being raped and the Mauritian police had brought them to the Ashram for theirs and their babies’ well-being.They would live there until the mothers turned 18
The community spirit was great! They all played and carried the babies and helped look after them! Imagine if these girls were living amongst society! They would be isolated and judged and treated like pariahs although they were the victims. I wonder what happened to the perpetrators?
There was another 15 year old who Kamalbhabhi had given healing to earlier. At teatime, they were all treated to some biscuits and tea. This beautiful soul shared her treat with Kamalbhabhi! And when bhabhi shared her biscuit with me, the 15 year old took it back from me and gave it to bhabhi and shared another one with me! This was soooo touching! To have nothing but then share your treat with someone, wow!
It gives you perspective in life; we have so much, yet we fight with each other for more and here was this child who only had a bed in a dormitory, a plate, a cup and a glass by her bedside and was willing to share what little she had with us.
Quite a few of the ‘patients’ asked if we had had lunch as they were about to have theirs.
We made a donation to the ashram but Nancy said they needed body cream, breakfast cereal etc so Meghan went to a supermarket to get those items on our behalf and returned to the ashram where we presented them to the administrators, who also had been given Reiki.
The treasurer from the Hindu Unitey society, Pravin, also came to see us again; took pictures and video interviews of what we do as LHSG.He also brought us a lovely mauritian dish each of ‘siro’ made from rice by his wife!
We were just totally surrounded by kind and caring people.
All in all, another superbly rewarding and humbling experience.
At all 3 places, I did Ho’oponopono to each individual before starting the healing.
Thank you Kamalbhabhi
Thank you Universe
