Dear Ananda, What a place! I know God sent me there. I hope you'll agree to allowing me the use of your retreat, although I must admit I'm a little fearful. I'm presently on the plane back to Illinois, but visions of the cave, your gardens, home and memories of the sound and touch of the wind excite me. I admire your obvious hard work of love, and want to share in that LOVE somehow, someway. Please help me get in touch with my God/me. My whole sabbatical to Santa Fe is for that very reason, and I may learn the path I'm on is the right one or that I must move on. So, anyhow, enclosed is a gift. I'm sure you'll use it well. I look forward to sharing, learning, tasting, smelling, loving. Regards, JC - Illinois
Ananda, Just a short note thanking you for your gracious hospitality in my hour of need. I was a mess when I arrived here, even suicidal; very ill spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally. I was so tired. Being here gave me a chance to stop and look at myself and life, and how I managed them together. It was life-saving for me to look around myself at a slower pace, to see myself again in more of a proper context; and Ananda, you helped me to do all this as well. Thank you Ananda. P.S. Thank you so much for $200 to get myself started again. With Mindful Respect, JM - Michigan
Dear Francis, Thank you for the opportunity to support your organization! We truly enjoyed ourselves in the "Room with the Inner View". Thanks also for the insight and clarity; it meant alot to me! Love, M & J - Arizona
Dear Brother Ananda, My family thanks you for the gift of money. We are honored to be thought of as a part of Krishna Roy's memory. You too, are a very saintly soul. You have touched the lives of people you don't even know by your kindness to us. A woman I work with asked for your picture that I had at my desk. She said you looked like a spiritual, peaceful and joyous man, and it made her feel that way to look at your picture. I gave it to her, and she was very grateful. Love and light. CW - Michigan
Dear Sadhuji, Truly, we are blessed to have met you. The Satsang we shared will be with us always. Thank you again, for a wonderful visit. We anticipate our next meeting and shall take advantage of your gracious invitation to visit you again when the opportunity presents itself. Om Shanti. YH and LM - Florida
Respected Guru Father Babaji, I acknowledge with great thanks the receipt of your kind letter, along with draft for 200 American Dollars. Once again we all give thanks to you for the finance at time when we all were badly in need of funds. Here I am also informing you very gladly that I got all the medicines and tablets of vitamins which you had sent. Heera is better now and developing her health slowly. I am ending my letter with lot of respect and regards. Your friend, AM - Kankhal, INDIA
Dear Francis Ananda, Many, many thanks for making this space available to me. It was a very challenging experience, and I also got exactly what I needed. What a gift you are giving people by having this palce of refuge. Blessings, Jeanne
Dear Ananda, I know I can never re-pay you for your generosity and
hospitality. I am forever grateful. You and your life will
always inspire me. I now know there are those among us that have
truly touched the divine in all aspects of their life. I now know what
I strive for. May many blessings come to you and your work.
With Love Always, Lynn B.
