Dear Sri tbs,
Your comments inspired me to know more about the life style of this unique community Amish, about which Sri Prasad has also mentioned in his message.
"Amish believe that God has called them to a simple life of faith, discipline, dedication and humility. They believe that the Amish religion should be practiced, not displayed, and translated into daily living rather than focused on tangible symbols or complicated religious rituals. Their belief is that God has a personal and abiding interest in their lives, families and communities is the force that holds them together in spite of the pressures of the outside world."
What a wonderful concept !
Our previous generations of Brahmins led a simple life in Agraharams spending their life in studies and religious activities, without concern for earning. But times have changed and to look back is futile.
Now there are attempts by builders to build Agraharam style of retirement homes for the community in South mainly around Coimbatore and Palakkad.
