In February and in March of this year I started to send some
e-mails to friends and relatives to take a look at our Newsletter.
One friend saw me in the grocery market after she received the
Newsletter and said she was looking forward to receiving future
issues. She was quite taken with the New Man article by
Maitreya in the March issue. Have seen her a few times
since she received that March issue and she always comments on some
part of the current issue.
Then noticed that some guests in Pal Talk spent a good bit of time in
our rooms listening to the readings in All Religions Unified, or to
Maitreya giving Satsang in the Discourse Room, or meditating with us in the meditation room.
So starting in July, new guests who spent some time in our rooms were
sent IMs giving them our website address and inviting them to read our
free newsletter. In July, 152 IM's were sent. 10 of
those guests sent their e-mail addresses. They were sent the
current Newsletter. There were others who said they went to
the website and subscribed there.
This project has continued and now we are receiving about a 10%
response with receiving e-mail addresses, plus the others who
subscribe at our website. An average of 100 IM's have been
sent each month from July through December.
Though many of these guests were not interested to receive our
Newsletter, they had questions about our Mission and Its
teaching. They received links to where they could find their
answers on our website and/or the search button was brought to their
attention. Some of them wanted to ask where they could find
whatever it was they were listening to in the room. Mostly it
was when Maitreya was giving Satsang. These were given
links to those Satsangs, or readings.
There are other projects that are being worked on also. A few
years ago a folder was started where ideas of projects to place on a
website were kept. There may now be time to bring some of these
ideas into fruition.
One of these projects is to finish the Feast recipes and menus from
2003 to 2009. The recipes and menus from 1991 through 2002 are
already available on our website at this link:
This is an easy recipe website to navigate. In the
introduction there is an explanation of how the site came about and
how to navigate it. Have tested many of the links these past
few weeks in working on the 2003 to 2009 recipes and menus, and
found the links are working just fine. All are invited to take
We encourage everyone to send in their monthly reports to
the Mission to be added to report pages!
The deadline is the 5th of each month. The Newsbrief is usually
