Satya Vedam- A Legacy of Truth & Honor & Discipleship. Those who Receive Much

My aunt  Satya Vedam (beige),  joined the Lord of her Life on Feb 19.

She was widowed in her 20s with 3 small kids and fell into depression, and certain death when God miraculously rescued her, both body and soul.

She raised my mom (red), 12 years younger and another sister Susheela, and more family while they were growing up.
Her daughter is in grey, and the boy in black is her grandson's son.

She was soft-spoken, with great Biblical knowledge, full of love with a generosity that could be faulted.
My mom and her Sister rarely saw each other in the last few years, both being too sick to travel, and needing to depend on others.
But they shared something no one else can- the awareness of each other as Warriors in the Spiritual Realm. The bounds of time, body were ir-relevant.

Her sight in the natural was weak in the last few years, for she lifted a burning sword in the Spiritual realm, and perhaps, she opted to not see both...

Both raised war in the heavenlies, prayed for and healed the sick, gave Hope to the hopeless, love to the unlovable, Light to the discouraged and

walked the earth solely to plant the Kingdom of God.
Their lives, energies, monies, times, were expended for a God who called them in Love.
They are the Brave, Fearless, Warriors who did things that no one can - and with whom many people will not co-operate.

Her name was SatyaVedam- the True Veda-
 the Brahmins who knew her called her in jest as Panchama Veda- the Fifth Veda- a name that she held true, because she realized they saw further than others.

She was 90 years old on this earth and left a Legacy of honor to those of us who align with and associate with her name.

Matthew 19:29
New International Version
And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.
Such a Legacy is hers.
 There is a related verse, to which she held true

Luke 14:26
New Living Translation
"If you want to be my disciple, you must hate everyone else by comparison--your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters--yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple.

In my youth, I used to wonder why it says "wife" and not husband. But when I got married light came in the guise of experience.

The husband is the one who saves, stores, safeguards- in my native telugu, it is "one who bears"
By definition, the one who bears the cross is the husband.

My aunt was called to be a husband.
To save many, to bear not her weight, but the weight of many, many others.
thousands around her bear witness to her labor of love.

While she was well, she would say- and many of us remember this- " today if I do not preach the gospel, how can I eat?"

Her discipleship was costly.
But evidently, it was less than she was paid for.

And all through the ages, the disciples of Christ say, 
Lord, we are able.

A song in her memory.
