Ishan Chaitanya Dasa – Macedonia
I had been suffering chronic pain for years when I came across the VCC via Facebook. Soon I made contact with them and found out they were the real deal when it came to making a difference. Some generous devotees donated some money (for which I’ll be forever grateful – you know who you are) and the VCC sent me some homeopathic medicine which improved my condition and made my life easier.
I wish to express my gratitude to the staff of the VCC for their great care and help in my attempts to fix my health. Even though sometimes we may not see it, without a healthy body even our spiritual life suffers. We are going to need this body till the end of this life, so it’s a great mercy from Krishna and a privilege to have someone who cares and helps despite not being a family member or a close friend.
The VCC members are more than just medical workers or managers – they are dedicated devotees of the Lord and people with the knowledge, understanding and will to help. If that is not quality, I don’t know what is. I heartily recommend everyone to donate to their cause and thus see to it that there are sufficient funds for all ailing or otherwise incapacitated devotees. Krishna certainly loves it when we help each other:
dehinām iha dehiṣu
prāṇair arthair dhiyā vācā
“It is the duty of every living being to perform welfare activities for the benefit of others with his life, wealth, intelligence and words.” This is the mission of life. One’s own body and the bodies of his friends and relatives, as well as one’s own riches and everything else one has, should be engaged for the benefit of others. (Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 10.22.35)
To better serving and helping each other and our supreme benefactor,
Ishan Chaitanya das
