④Balance (Up to 17th, Jan)
② － ③ ＝ 132640yen -----④ （←this balance will be used as below）
All donations (the balance) of TOKYO Vedanta Camp are used for preserving this teaching tradition of Vedanta to next generation through Arsha Vidya Gurukulam
and used for AIM for Seva (All India Movement for Seva)
. Both are founded by Swami Dayananda Saraswati. AIM for Seva’s purpose is to save many lesser privileged children from the rural and tribal regions of India. The journey has begun from total darkness to light as AIM for Seva's Student Homes open their doors to provide a bright future for them.
For us, the world is non-separate form Isvara, Bhagavan. So, working, studying, getting married, singing and dancing are all religious in the Vedic culture. All human pursuits, even the pursuit of wealth and success are nothing but seeking Isvara Himself.
Without a chance to appreciate Isvara, any studying and working in society cannot make sense. Even so, children have to be asked, "How is your grade in your school?", "What job would you choose?" It is too terrible and minds collapse. Studying becomes studying for exam. Life becomes the life only for waiting for Sunday, showing heavy sighs in Monday morning sometime with anger, or lament for wrinkles on face. The more I come to know the world, the more I become small and insignificant.
Is my life only for obtaining good comments from others? ---
If one can see through what is going on, seeking the truth, he or she has to approach the teacher who teaches Vedanta. Living and appreciating vedic vision in life, being mature emotionally, one may take the committed life style called YOGA.
It is said that knowledge for Moksa taught in Vedanta, in the last chapter of Veda, takes place only in the cheerful mind of YOGI, the one who lives YOGA. Knowing that self is free from all limitation, he or she gains the total self-acceptance, Moksa.
We want to work for handing down this teaching tradition to next generation, so that we can grow out. Let's make sure the glory of this teaching tradition ourselves in this Tokyo Vedanta Camp.
★We are planning to arrange the opportunity to get blessings from Swami Dayananda at the end of the Camp, for the people who’s been supporting this event by sponsoring, donating or actual works. Please pay your kind attention till the end of this event.
