A Loss, But Not Lost
A young man, Kiran, 24, a member of our community, suddenly lost his life in an auto accident while on his way to work. While this may be just another one of those news items, one that we often become insensitive to because it is a story repeated over again and again, it really shakes the ground you stand on when it’s close to home.
“Kiran used to attend the temple when he was much younger,” said his distraught mum, Srimati, when I spoke to her over the phone. “The car spun out of control when someone hit him. It’s very hard.”
You could hear the pain in her voice as we conversed. It’s understandable. A soul comes into your life, is your dependant for a quarter of it, and so the attachment is very real. Then if you have one of those families where the lifestyle is a wholesome one, your dependant starts doing things for you and eventually a beautiful reversal takes place. In your senior years, he/she looks after you. You have him/her and you have God. You’re not lonely and you’re attached to the love given.
It then becomes difficult to have one such person suddenly drop out of the picture, although the Divine friend, God-in-the-heart, remains as a blesser and a guide.
We, the friends of the family, are compelled to be totally behind you and support you through prayer and mantra. There are many folks in this world who lose family through mishaps of a shocking kind and we give our hearts out to you.
May the Source be with you!
