Sri Karunamayi?s Visit To Portland
Karunamayi Bhagavati Sri Sri Sri Vijayeshwari Devi has been revered
as the incarnation of the Divine Mother, Saraswati, Goddess of Knowledge
and Creativity. On behalf of humanity, She meditated in a remote forest
in India for ten years. She is the embodiment of Compassion and Truth.
The universal Source of Knowledge, known as Saraswati, flows through
Her as She speaks.
There is a beauty and sweetness in Her teachings. Through different
examples She makes people understand easily profound truths which are
so hard to realize through different philosophies. Even the worst sinner
and confirmed atheist come to Her and surrender to Her. She loves them
all and cheers them up with words of hope. Mother says, "We should
yearn for the divine spirit with confidence and with a feeling of closeness
as to a father and mother." "Our relationship with God should
be one of unconditional love. More than in any other relationship, we
may rightly and naturally demand a reply from spirit in its aspect as
Divine Mother. God is constrained to answer such an appeal, for the
essence of a mother is love and forgiveness of her child, no matter
how great a sinner he may be."
You are invited to experience the bliss of Her serene presence as She
guides us toward spiritual illumination through meditation. Join us
for this rare opportunity during Her United States tour. Hear Her message,
receive the blessings of the Universal Mother, and know the fullness
of her unconditional Love.
Karunamayi will be in Portland on June 9th and 10th at Unity Church
of Portland, 4525 SE Stark and 45th. Also, She will be in Seattle on
June 14th and 15th at University Unitarian Church, 6556 35th Ave., N.E.
In addition, for those who want to deepen their spiritual practice,
