About the Flower of the Day Newsletter
Currently available in English, Portuguese and Spanish, the Flower of the Day is a free e-mail service that provides daily quotes from Sri Prem Baba, a master teacher from Brazil who continues the work of the Sachcha lineage in India. Prem Baba’s method of self-discovery builds bridges between East and West, psychology and spirituality. These short teachings or “reminders” cover various themes from relationships and work with the shadow to activating consciousness and connecting with the Divine.
The Flower of the Day has been popular with people from all faiths and walks of life, regardless of their connection with Prem Baba. People who have no previous connection with psycho-spiritual work to people who have been following specific religions or traditions for decades have all benefited from this daily “flower” or “offering,” praising the accessibility, universality and practicality of its teachings.
Below is one of the numerous comments we have received recently from all parts of the world:
Dear Prem Baba, from a young age I’ve always been able to achieve my goals, and I can be considered to be a successful person, as I’ve acquired money, sex and power. But now I am depressed… nothing feeds me anymore. Thoughts of suicide have visited me. Even the pleasure I had in traveling to other countries has disappeared. It seems impossible to go on living, especially in big cities. A few days ago, a good soul forwarded me some of your messages, and it was like fresh water for someone who was on the verge of dying from thirst. I finally saw a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you.”
If at any moment you decide that you don’t wish to receive the Flower of the Day, you can either unsubscribe or change your subscription settings to only receive sporadic updates and event announcements by clicking on “Manage preferences” at the bottom of any e-mail.
There are times when you can’t look at the flowers, nor smell their scent. You can’t see the beauty in life. When you lose touch with the beauty and sweetness, there is a sense of dryness. Everything becomes bitter because in some way you are refusing to love. You can only bring light to your life through love. This is why I dedicate so much energy to getting you to notice where love is trapped, so that you can identify your own games of accusation, until you realize that everything is a game and there are no enemies. In fact, what does exist is that some people are lost in the illusion of Maya. Don’t waste your life thinking that this is personal. If you accept the desert instead of fighting against it, everything passes. It has something to teach you. Don’t run away from it. Once and for all you need to understand that God is your best friend. Life is not against you.”
-Sri Prem Baba

An example of a letter sent by Prem Baba through this newsletter
June 13th, 2012
Beloved Friend! Joyful greetings!
These are dark times. For many, it seems like faith, love, and joy went on vacation and didn’t leave even a contact phone number. On the other hand I’m also seeing many happy people who are becoming happier. It’s been interesting to observe this contrast. I want to give some relief for those of you who are in the valley of the shadow of death, and also guide those who at this time are able to stand on the mountaintop. This message is written especially for my disciples, however it is fine with me if others would like to read it.”
