- Charity for Pregnant Women in Anatapur
In the last few months, the Shirdi Sai Global Trust began to support a local charity project in the city of Anantapur. The charity project is for pregnant ladies to receive healthy and nutritious food free of charge for the duration of their pregnancy.
On the occasion of the 4th month anniversary of Sri Kaleshwarʻs Mahasamadhi, this charity project was blessed by a celebration in a Sri Veerabrahmendra temple. After a homa to Sri Veerabrahmendra, the pregnant women were presented with grains and blankets. Also present were Katak dancers, who demonstrated their beautiful arts and orators gave inspiring speeches. This temple, with its powerful Veerabrahmendra Murti was supported during its construction two years ago by Sri Kaleshwar.
The charity project for the pregnant women is ongoing and plans are in progress to also support these women through their lactation period. At this time, one hundred ladies are included in the program.
While the government only provides grass for the animals of poor farmers in the drought area of Anantapur district, Sri Kaleshwar’s charitable trust provides, for more than one month, food for 400 to 500 farmers every day. They come from villages 10 to 15 km afar from Penukonda.

Singing Kaleshwar bhajans has been a vehicle for healing our grieving hearts and a significant part of bringing us together, in unity, to honor and send love to our beloved Guruji, now in maha samadhi, here in the Dwarkamai in Penukonda.
Through our devotional singing to Krishna we are sending the energy from Swami’s samadhi to the hearts of all students and all people around the globe. Following are 5 bhajans we sang together from the last global conference call. We hope you will enjoy the fragrance of these bhajans, which are filled with the energy from here and receive the divine healing and blessings to your souls.
May we all continue to grow the power of bhakti in our hearts through singing the bhajans, through healing the sick, and through taking care of those in need and may our inspiration magnify and radiate the beautiful universal fragrance of our divine master, Sri Kaleshwar.
Jai Guru Datta!
- Sri Kaleshwar, January 8, 1973 — March 15, 2012
Our beloved Guruji, Swami Kaleshwar, took mahasamadhi at 3 pm Indian Standard Time, Thursday, March, 15th 2012.
It is natural for us as human beings to feel sadness and grief at the passing of such a great friend, teacher, guru and soulmate. But in the immortal ancient spiritual tradition that he dedicated his life to share with the whole globe, we most truely celebrate the divine life, sacrifice, works, and finally moksha that this great soul has achieved. Jai Guru!
