Devi paced the floor, anxiety dripping from her prayers to the Hindu gods. Her husband, Arjun, was diagnosed with kidney stones that required an operation. The doctors cautioned that the surgery could be life threatening; so was going without it. Either way, there was a risk of him dying. Devi didn’t know what to do. When her teary eyes met Arjun’s, his expression matched her own. Anxious. Fearful. Hopeless.
For weeks, they went back and forth on how to proceed. Each conversation was more depressing than the next, with no resolution in sight. Then one day, they had a visitor. Devi’s niece, a TTI disciple maker, was in town, and she presented an alternative to surgery… prayer.
