Anni’s Care Fund

July 5, 2007 Kamala Amma's Grace

Dearest Friends and Family,

We need to discuss Anni’s Care Fund. We know that many of you have contributed to ACF.   The fund was begun through the generous instigation of dear friends who feared for us financially, knowing how little money we have.   We initially intended to use it for Anni’s medication and medical care if needed.  As we were using nutritional therapies,  and Anni refused all pain medication from April 2, 2007,  we did not use the money in the Fund.  It has a little over $2000.two thousand at present.
In the last few days of Anni’s life here,  we discussed what we would do, once she was finally better.  Before getting sick,  Anni had wanted to study medicine, and help people as a doctor.  Her suffering was so much for all of us, and the months of absorption  with her pain, the experiences with the medical – pharmaceutical – legal world,  right down to the Gerson practitioner dumping her as a patient,  had the impact of making us all sick of the process,  the medical world as a whole.  We all three decided that in the future, Anni would move towards music and children and joy.

We are trying to figure out how to do this.  We want to use the money to help the helpless and despairing,  with joy in some way.  We will discuss it with Amma,  but we would also like your suggestions.  God works through everyone.   Please give your ideas in the comments.

Loving you,

    Dear Family,
    I too have always loved children and feel that one of the best ways to make the world a better place is to take care of the children, and always let them know that no matter what, they are loved. Whenever I give money to charities, children (and animals) are usually involved. Whenever I give money to Amma’s charities, I always ask that the money go to Amma’s orphanages. It always astonishes me how Amma manages to get so many little bodies clothed and fed and loved and taught…Perhaps there could be a special fund set up in Anni’s name to teach the children music? Just an idea that popped into my head….Love to you, mare

    Namah Shivaya, Kamala and Link,

    I have been reading along and am so sorry for your loss. Comfort isn’t mine to offer, but I do send you a great deal of love, and I’m grateful for the glimpse into such a beautiful life.

    Maybe Anni’s original desire to help heal people can be combined with the “music and children and joy”. Music therapy could fit this bill without the ties to the medical world. I am a musician, myself, but not a music therapist… still, I know how important and healing the music can be.

    Perhaps the fund could become a scholarship/grant for someone wishing to pursue music therapy as a means of healing and giving joy to the world, particularly children; or it could be used to help bring underprivileged children into an environment of music and joy, whether with a music therapist or Kindermusik teacher or at some sort of school/camp or something else I haven’t thought of.

    As Mare said, just an idea that popped into my head.

    Om Namah Shivaya Kamala and Link,

    Offering the money as music classes to Amma’s orphans is a wonderful idea. I can’t think of anything better which would bring joy into their lives and Anni’s soul! I’ll see you in India mid October and look forward to visiting and making music again with everyone.

    Loving you dearly,

    Dear kamala aunty and Linky,

    All the above suggestions are admirable. I am touched by the benevolent and caring nature of all the dear friends here. In my opinion it would make nice to make a small shiv mandir (temple) in the name of annika . It can be in a small garden close to ashram in the lap of mother nature such that its accessible to all shiv devotees. It will resemble a symbol of love and genoristy that our Anni had towards mankind and humanity. Anni has merged into divine light and worship of lord shiva would make devotess reminisce sweet memories of our sweet Anni.

    Best Regards

    Kamala Aunty, I think we can also use the funds for creating Annis album..for recording studio and miscellaneous expense if we intend to record outside the Ashram..But I dont know whether it is the perfect choice..but yes it can be one of the options..Though the music class idea is excellent..Love you lots…

    Hi Kamala and Link,

    Perhaps the fund could be used for Circle of Love activities—maybe there are other devotees with illnesses that could use some resources and caring.

    If you donate to the ashram you can’t hold them to something specific like music lessons for children due to the tax laws. It goes into general funds (school, orphanage, etc.).

    In Amma, Divya

    Love, Music, God all go together.
    So, let ACF be spent in the same way…

    beloved ones
    i think divya has a point there about the tax laws,..

    i have always believed that it is better to nourish light and goodness than to fight the evil and dark,
    in this sense i find all the listed and ideas and suggestions good.
    now my first impulse is very contradict to what i say,

    to start small clean up campaigns
    , as much as amma and the many thousand helpers do,this is a point it seems to me so far not many have touched,
    it was as long as i know you all,most beautiful ones, a desire of yours to clean and decorate the ashram ,to bring beauty where ever you went,
    with small projects,
    arundhati roy says , maybe it is the century of demantling the great and big,the big men, and wars, the big heroes and mistakes, big dangers and risks big ideas and concepts…
    maybe it is the time for small wonders,heroes of a new way,
    to bring god in the small things of life in to apparence,

    maybe if we can join hands and use the money in a way to bring beauty into energy dissonating places, as are everywhere in india, make gardens in dump places,as we did in the ashram with the tulsi spiral!
    or organize volantair cleanings…

    helo to bring an awarness where ever we walk of a living planet!!!!
    a living most beautiful planet that needs to be sustained!!!

    god bless you xx
