The Joy Of Giving : Narayanan Krishnan


“Give freely to the world these gifts of love and compassion. Do not concern yourself with how much you receive in return, just know in your heart it will be returned.” ― Steve Maraboli,

Narayanan Krishnan brings hot meals daily to India's homeless and destitute. This most amazing Indian chef turned social worker, utilizes both heart and spirit to ensure those who are hungry will always have something good to eat. 

Since 2002, his organization, Akshaya Trust, has served over 1.2 million meals. 

What started with a simple vision—to care and provide for the mentally disabled and senior citizen homeless population in India, has grown into a most brilliant reality. On May 9, 2013 this organization will conduct their grand opening of the Akshaya Home ~ which will serve as a 'home' for those most needing it. 

And it all started with just one thought...one vision...and that very first meal. 

So often, we hesitate in helping others. We presume our hearts are just not big enough, or that what we might do couldn't possibly have a positive impact. 

Everything matters. Every thought, every dream...and every moment we make a decision to help or not to help...it all very much matters.

What you do, matters.

So let me ask you ~ what can you do that will matter today?
