The seva volunteers arranged to do a seva on the 25th December 2010 at Caroline Wambui
Mungai Foundation. This is a foundation that was formed in the memory of Caroline. The
foundation was established in December 2004 to rescue orphans and vulnerable children
from poverty to destiny with love. We wanted to celebrate Christmas day with the children.
Christmas day is the day when Jesus was born. Celebrating Christmas is not just to attend
to churches, Midnight masses or Bhajan singing but it’s much deeper than that. This is the
day when Jesus brought something new to the world, which is forgiveness, Compassion and
There are many Avatars, saints and prophets who have taught and brought Love to people
but Jesus brought Love and forgiveness. This is the day when you pray to remind yourself
of the forgiveness by firstly forgiving yourself for whatever you have done wrong followed
by forgiving others who have wronged you.
It’s not about God forgiving you, but it’s about forgiving yourself first. And after that,
focus on the Love that you carry inside of you. This is day when he is born inside each one
of us. And this rebirth should not only be there during Christmas time but should be there
all the time. He is born continuously in each cell of your body to remind us all of the love,
compassion and forgiveness - Sri Swami Vishwananda

When we arrived, all the children were eagerly waiting for us. We had done our previous seva
at the same place on 28th November 2010. The children were so excited to see us again and
eagerly greeted each one of us with so much joy and Happiness.
We celebrated this day with the children with Cake, gifts, decorations and singing songs.
The children continuously sang songs and danced. There was so much love flowing from
their heart. It was an amazing feeling to be around these children who are blessed with pure
We wish to continue serving the children and with your assistance we will be able to create a
better environment for these children who have nowhere to turn to but us!!

Jai Gurdev !
