Post-Hurricane Katrina letter
to Hari Singh from a friend
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina I am safe at my new destination. Going back to my home and seeing
all the destruction along the coast was overwhelming.
I knew everything inside my home would be a loss and it was.
Everything was wet, and covered with mold. Any paper or books were
turned into a mushy moldy mass. The contents of my home were picked
up and strewn randomly throughout the inside. The water level reached
about five feet in depth at the peak of the storm surge. It carried
a lot of swamp water with it, so on top of the mold it all smelled
like sulfur, too.
I knew that when I started to clear the mess out of the house I would
likely run into something unusual and I did!
I had a meditation room with a small altar in it. I had placed a card
with Yogi Bhajan on it. The card was given to teachers at Solstice.
I also had a Kirpan and a small picture on it. The picture said, "Life
is Good." See the photo attached.
Without even a scratch!
As I got to the area where the altar had come to rest I couldn't believe
it at first. The card and picture were untouched when every other
scrap of paper in the house was covered in mold. What a miracle!
Life is Good! Wahe Guru!
