What does “Mata Shakti Ashram” mean?
*The word “Mata” means “mother” in India. In Portuguese and Spanish, the word “Mata” means wood or forest, and Mata Shakti Ashram is located in a quiet wooded setting.
*The word “Shakti” means empowerment and primordial cosmic energy. Shakti represents the dynamic forces of feminine divine energy that move through the entire universe.
*The word “Ashram” means the locus of activity for spiritual practices.

In this season of gift giving, a fun thing to do is to help needy families around the world. One of my favorite ideas is to give a gift of honeybees. This can help families from Uganda to Haiti to earn income through the sale of honey and beeswax. An added benefit is that when placed strategically, beehives can as much as double some fruit and vegetable yields through natural pollination. In this way, a beehive can be a boost to a whole village. You can give a gift of honeybees through a $30 donation to www.heifer.org/catalog
