Kamala's Last Birthday Party

 

Party FinalJune 21, 1997 was Kamala's last birthday. About ten of us gathered to celebrate with Kamala. Because there were so many of us, the staff suggested we use the facility's social room, a pretty space with lots of windows and comfy seating.

We brought her funny little gifts that she enjoyed, like the silly blue ribbon she wears in the photo, with #1 imprinted in gold on its face. She really seemed tickled when we pinned that ribbon onto her sweater.

The Dunlop's brought a harmonium, and Jan played several of Master's chants. Kamala did not chant with us, but she smiled broadly and nodded her head to the music. She especially enjoyed O, Thou King of the Infinite, which Edward later told us was her favorite chant.

Kamala was in her element. She even asked to go to the piano and "tickle the keys," which astounded the St. Joseph's staff, who had not even been aware that Kamala could play the piano. 

It is a happy memory. We feel so blessed to have been able to make Kamala so happy on her special day, her final birthday on this earth.

Birthday - A spiritual blessing - all day was filled with great peace and withdrawn from all else, such contentment. A most special inner stillness - and as if part of great oneness in the peace of God - from Master in God.

My Birthday. So many Blessings. I am blessed with my Mother - her love and dear care of me. I am at the cottage she gave me. At the place I came with Papa and Mother at age 3. The area I was drawn to. Blessed by God, Master and our Paramgurus. Recollection of being with 4 Masters in 1972 Jan. 13.
