VIMUKTI transformed my life…. : Vimukti Pothnal
“I am Mallaya, the son of Mr. Eranna and Mrs. Huchamma from Markamdeni village of Manvi taluka. I was a student of fifth std., eight years ago. I was forced to leave the school because my younger brother was suffering from mental disorders and hence there was no one to look after him. However, I had a lot of desire for regular studies but I could not fulfill it due to poverty and lack of personnel at home. But now though I am not a regular student at school, I feel satisfied that my quest for education is being met by Vimukti which renders free coaching classes in the evening from 4.30 to 5.30 every day.

Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
