Gurudev Chitrabhanu and Pramoda Chitrabhanu have been a part of my life for more than 20 years now, although, it has taken me some time to acknowledge and begin to understand how much they have given to me and guided me through my life. I met them through the Lighthouse Center Inc. in Whitmore Lake, MI USA.
At 92 Gurudev is still filled with an energy and spirit that gives to all of us Unconditional Love. His energy and teachings compelled me to create a blog for spreading his message of non-violence (Ahinsa) through his personal messages using videos, audios and teachings. I felt deeply that there should be a centralized place for his teachings and also for Pramoda to offer what she feels is important. So, in the fall of 2013 I setup this blog and, with their blessings, have begun publishing. You can also find additional information and teachings at JainMeditation.org
My experience has been that Gurudev and Pramoda Chitrabhanu work together to serve the planet in their deep belief in the practice of Ahinsa, non-violence to all beings. This practice extends to our growing in understanding how each act that we do affects, not only ourselves, but, all those who are close to us and the planet.
All are welcome to comment on this blog, all comments are monitored and approved by me. I have been pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and kind comments that have been written to both of them. However, they are not personally creating the blogs and pages on this site. They do know that comments are being posted, but their schedules do not allow them to respond. I receive emails from them and post their requests, plus I have been searching YouTube to find videos and I have a large library of audios that will be published on this blog as time permits.
It is my intent to serve the Jain practice of Ahinsa, to do what I can to create non-violence toward all beings on this planet. Hopefully you will choose to take this journey too. I am forever grateful to both Gurudev and Pramoda Chitrabhanu for their spiritual guidance and I feel truly blessed to know them.
Love to All Beings,
