    What a beautiful heartfelt event, all to raise money for Maina's Home for Children in Nepal. It is powerful when a community comes together to partner with a community across the globe. We are all one family and that definitely came through. Thanks to all who attended and to the silent auction participants and volunteers. Some truly amazing donations were made for the silent auction by the Ayurvedic Community.

    Wonderful evening. Swami Maheshananda solidified the essence of Diwali when he said it was about sharing.
    Sharing feel good inside,which is are natural state. we spend alot of time teaching our children about the importance of sharing yet as adults, it gets diluted. Thank you Glynnis so much for your vision and commitment in the manifestation of a truly magical evening.
    love colleen xox
