Stevens Passing & Cremation Funding

Steven Martin, our dear friend and wonderful Kirtan player left this world in the early morning hours on January 30th.  We his friends wish to honor his passing by contributing to his cremation costs and helping  support Ananda Devii in this difficult time with all related expenses.

Please show your support and appreciation for all the wonderful contributions Steven and Ananda Devii have  given to all of us over the years, opening their house for gatherings, sharing their beautiful kirtan and giving freely to everyone.  

Funds are needed as soon as possible as arrangements need to be made now and knowing there is support will make a difference. All proceeds will go directly to Ananda Devii. 

Any and all donations of any amount are much appreciated!

Below is a a Thich Nhat Hanh poem shared in honor of Steven 

NO COMING, NO GOING

This body is not me.
I am not caught in this body
i am life without limit.
I have never been born and I never die.

Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations of my wonderious true mind.
Since beginningless time I have always been free.

Birth and death are only doors through which we pass.
Sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide and seek.

So laugh with me,
Hold my hand
Let us say good bye,
Say good bye to meet again.

We meet today, we will meet tomorrow,
We meet at the source at every moment.
We meet each other in all forms of life. 

Fare thee well on your journey Steven
