Jusaniya devi dasi : ISKCON Philadelphia Forms the First Vaisnavas C.A.R.E. ‘Care Team’ in North America

On Sunday, March 16, 2008, Sangita devi dasi, President and Co-Founder of Vaisnavas C. A. R. E., Inc. led a five hour seminar at the ISKCON Philadelphia temple which led to such a highly enthusiastic conclusion that all seminar participants volunteered to form a Vaisnavas C. A. R. E. ‘CARE Team’ that will assist chronically and terminally ill temple and congregational members in the area.

Seminar participants included:

Bhagavatananda dasa

Savitri devi dasi

Gandarvika devi dasi

Archana Arya

Santosh Arora, RN, BSN

Vibhishan dasa (originally from Israel)

Raj Bassi

Sraddha devi dasi

Prema Caitanya dasa (Dr. Puneet Kumar)

Subjects included:

The history of the hospice movement

How to become a Healing Presence

Communicating with Someone who is dying

Guided Imagery for Relaxation

What do dying devotees deserve?

How to help a devotee die with dignity?

Exploring our own feelings of death and dying.

Spiritual Pain

The Five Stages of Dying

How to have a ‘good death.’

How to become a good listener.

Body language speaks louder than talk.

and much more…

To continue the spirit of enthusiasm, some of the participants will meet every Sunday for two hours before the Sunday feast to complete the Vaisnavas C. A. R. E. Distance Learning Online Course as a group project. As Bhagavatananda Prabhu stated, ‘To do these projects together in a group makes the activity more exciting and builds more enthusiasm rather than doing it alone.’

More seminars will be given in Philadelphia. If you are interested in having one presented at your temple, please contact: Sangita devi dasi at: sangitadd@hotmail.com for more information. Thank you.
