MOTHER’S VISION FOR THE SCHOOL
Mother’s Vision is to give Her Indian children a high standard of education in a school managed and structured by western standards and with the help of volunteers.
With Mother’s guidance, our devotion and surrender, Mother’s Vision will
continue to manifest. If you are able to spend a month or more in India,
this is a wonderful opportunity to work with Mother and Her children. To
support Her as She is supporting us.
MOTHER MEERA OPENED AN ORPHANAGE 28 SEP 2007
One day, Mother simply opened the doors of Her private home to shelter children that didn’t have families to support them. She endearingly called them ’ashram kids’. In love and surrender two Western devotees committed to the challenging task of caring full-time for these kids, devoting their entire life to support Mother’s Vision.
The ashram kids then had a long way to walk to their local school on dusty and perilous roads, often accompanied by their loving ashram dog, whom Mother named Shivaji. He protected them from stray dogs and harassment. When the trek to the local school became too much of a hardship, Mother simply decided to open Her own school in Her home. Now the ashram kids only need to walk from one building to another on Mother’s protective grounds. They enjoy taking care of their school, they mature and take pride in their duties. For the love of Her ashram kids, and all Her children, Mother is continuously transforming the world.
MOTHER MEERA SCHOOL WAS INAUGURATED 7 JUN 2010
Thus, the orphanage was the humble beginning for Mother’s family of schools which now is a temple of learning for over 1000 students.
Construction and development of the School has arisen out of Mother’s Vision. Mother, together with devoted western volunteers worked hard to bring it to fruition.
Now we are all are asked to pitch in and keep it running smoothly by humbly following Mother’s intimate guidance.
Please come and volunteer now!
A seed planted carefully, well watered and cared for, now has matured into a tree with countless fruits and seedlings. It provides shade, comfort, education and hope for a multitude of Indian children as they ripen under Mother’s inspiring rays of Divine Grace and Love. The Mother Meera School is a group of schools in and around Madanapalle, India, consisting of Mother Meera English Medium High School and several Mother Meera Play Homes. A small home for the ashram kids and volunteer accommodations are part of the main school’s campus.
Along with the academic education, many periods of prayer and silent
meditation are merged into the daily school routine: before school begin;
at breaks and lunch time; before and after classes; and in the afternoon.
Local religions are beautifully reflected in the School’s students and
teachers, all united peacefully under Mother Meera’s protective umbrella.
The Western volunteers add yet another dimension, making THE MOTHER MEERA
SCHOOL AN INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE INTO THE SELF.
A steady stream of devoted and capable volunteers is needed, willing to work together, harmoniously, for Mother’s transformation of the world.
Please come with the wish for the children’s bright future and unity of all, as well as your own personal development. Put into action your believes knowing in your heart that the Divine Mother’s Grace is here to help all and transform everything.
Support Mother Meera’s Vision.
Offer the gifts and talents She granted you for Her work in the world.

MOTHER’S WISH-FULFILLING JEWEL
The School is like a wish-fulfilling jewel for all who have wanted to be close to Mother and yearned to reciprocate Her Love. Even with Her intense international Darshan schedule, Mother continues to visit Her Indian School on a monthly basis to ensure that Her vision for the school is evolving and well.
Volunteering is a delightful opportunity to observe the Divine Mother sharing and enlightening our lives, as one of us and in all Her different Divine Forms. To see Her walk, talk, laugh, scold, joke, and instruct. Tenderly arrange flowers, potently end conflicts or change hopeless situations. Repair electrical extension cords or sort and declutter a heap of messy tools. Attend meetings with teachers, staff or volunteers. All is Divine Grace, Darshan, in Mother’s Presence. Mother does everything with such detail and the love She holds for everything is apparent. Her loving radiant smile, intense gaze and presence shower Divine Blessings on the volunteers, inspiring an intimate relationship with the Divine, the world and ourselves.
Working with Mother is Darshan. In Mother’s presence awareness intensifies. The work in India can be challenging and occasionally overwhelming. Yet, whenever needed Mother’s Grace brings balance, perhaps by personal interaction, through a personal assignment to help children maintain discipline or simply by the school’s schedule that includes silence and meditation. Thus, Mother teaches us to interweave business, noise and stress with silence and meditation until the differences dissolve. Through this intimate connection with Mother we feel safe and know that The Divine Mother is always with us.
”GOD IS WITH US” is written on the Mother Meera School emblem in India.
We simply need to follow The Divine Mother’s guidance and surrender into Her international endeavor of reshaping the world and us. She will open our hearts, ever wider, to the Divine harmony and order here on earth. Not merely by sitting quietly in silent Darshan but also by working and helping on the physical level. Wherever Mother is physically present, there also is Her tangible Divine Darshan, Her Love, Light and Grace.
”EVERYTHING IS DIVINE. GOOD OR BAD. ALL IS GOD.”
– Mother Meera: Answers
Our awareness is heightened and for moments our traumas are eased as we perceive the separations between worldly and Divine disperse.
”THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE WORLD.
THE DIVINE IS EVERYWHERE.”
– Mother Meera: Answers
Mother’s work is an eternal offering to the Divine and of harmony to the world. She never shies away from any kind of work or circumstance. She simply does what needs to be done, supported or not. Mother is living proof and example of the Divine in the world and shows that world transformation is happening right now. We are all Her children and She lovingly cares for all of us, everywhere, with pure love and perfect respect. Accepts everything and unceasingly surrenders all for the well-being of Her children.
Mother is giving volunteers the most fortunate opportunity to personally talk with Her. Volunteers are encouraged to go to Mother to ask Her advice on individual or work related issues, concerns and beliefs, anything that is troubling their hearts and minds.
