A message from Neelam

My Dear Sangha,
 
Fundraising has always been an important part of our work here at Fire of Truth and as a small not for profit organization, we need to sustain with our efforts all year in a variety of ways.  So far, through your generous contributions, our twice-yearly campaigns have been the most successful in providing the necessary funds for extra projects and to help us to with our ongoing expenses
Since the challenges of my health have limited my ability to teach in person and travel we have been able to offer a steady schedule of teleconference programs that has reached an even wider audience of students, and we have successfully extended our reach as well.  It is through your donations and with your ongoing help that this deeply needed in the world work, can continue. 
We have not always been able to meet our fundraising goals so, as we reach out to ask for your help once again, we also hope to inspire a whole new group to support us so that we can build a more stronger fundraising foundation.  Please read more in Lee’s letter about the goals we have for this year. 
Thanks to you, we have just completed a beautiful upgrade of our website which I hope that you will visit at www.neelam.org.  We have also been able to pay for administrative support and continue to work on our book project as well. 
We are also excited to let you know that this year a group of donors have offered a matching fund for this campaign in the amount of $3000 which I am very, very grateful for.  That means that, if we reach that goal, every dollar that you donate up to this amount will show up as two dollars for us here at Fire of Truth.
As I sit with students in a variety of programs, I am constantly amazed by the richness and the profound impact and beauty of our meeting and how the power and simplicity of inquiry provides a true and lasting transformation.  And it is the ongoing and always freshly available invitation for Awakening and Freedom that keeps me and you showing up time and again and that, with your support for this work, is what helps me to continue.
 
LOVE,
Neelam

A note from Lee

 

Namaste,
Everyday we are faced with a multitude of challenges … some simple while others require more thought and energy.  Whether personal or global, it serves us to strengthen our innate ability to make clear, effective choices.  This teaching cuts through the core of our conditioning, allowing us to come to rest in Presence, over and over.  And Presence is the only place from which supportive and sustainable decisions can truly be made.  What, then, could be more crucial, more important than expanding our awareness of Truth?
Our objective remains constant … to expand Neelam’s reach within the world community, by making the teaching available to everyone.  We do this in many ways … creating recordings and a book of Neelam’s teaching, daily FaceBook postings, free Satsangs, web interviews, etc.  Your generosity has allowed us to update, renovate and refresh our website … please check us out at neelam.org!
Our goal for this year is to raise an additional $27,000.   In addition to covering general expenses, we are asking for …
  • $3,000 – Computer & Internet service for Nina (volunteer program coordinator)
  • $3.600 – Additional Administrative Support
  • $4,400 – Program Scholarship Fund
  • $1,000  - Music CD by Neelam
For this campaign we have been blessed with a very worthy challenge … a few supporters are asking that we match their pledges … your dollars magically double … won’t you help?
Your donations are the backbone of our existence and they come in all sizes … all are welcome, all are worthy. You can donate through a one-time gift, or a monthly contribution. Please see donation details, below. Thank you so much for supporting Fire of Truth and Neelam.
 
In gratitude,
Lee

From Nancy ... 


I’ve been studying with Neelam for about 1-1/2 years now and have found her teachings and individual guidance particularly helpful in my spiritual journey. Having never worked with a teacher before, I was pleasantly surprised by Neelam’s genuine interest, insight, and continued support for her students. Her teleconference classes are so convenient because I can be in Satsang while at home without a lot of long-distance travel. I enjoy and continue to benefit from ongoing classes with Neelam and her group Satsangs. Currently, I volunteer for Fire of Truth and donate financially to help keep Neelam’s teachings available to others.
 
Namaste,
Nancy C.
