To all Vaishnava devotees,
Prabhupad said “Those who have given their lives for Krishna should be taken care of at the end”.
When I said “Prabhupad sometimes I am sad by the way people treat each other, and sometimes…. Prabhupad replied “Why sometimes, we should always be compassionate.” And he bandaged my foot; himself, in Vrindavan when my foot was cut.
I heard recently a female devotee who gave ten years of full time service to Temples, was neglected by the devotee administrators, and shipped off to her parents who do not support Krishna consciousness and eat meat, etc.
There are too many stories of neglect or even abuse to elders and devotees in general.
Do not turn your backs on aging devotees who have served for most of their life; some for 50 years.
We are not ready to be forgotten.
We are still serving,
Das anu das is one of the main principles Prabhupad gave us. And it works when we perform it sincerely.
Again: “Any one who has given their life for Krishna, should be cared for at the end.”… A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad.
We at the Vedic Care Cooperative want to provide a model Vedic atmosphere for devotees and other spiritual seekers in need. However we cannot do this in every town and village, so we will assist, teach care, give classes, create more devotee care-giving Out-Reach Teams, etc.; but we really want all of you to take notice and create care places in your temples, homes, etc.
We can be examples of a positive alternative to the Callous apathetic material world, by caring for our own.
Please don’t turn your back!
We could be you,as you are getting older and you never know when you will be in need of care.
Please act on this need, or support our VedicCare.Org.
