1. Dear Digital Store User,
     
     As a result of feedback received from several users, we are simplifying the purchase process on the Digital Store.  You will soon be able to make direct purchases using your credit card, without having to go through purchasing Store Credits first.  But please note that due to credit card processing charges imposed on us by the payment gateway providers, the minimum purchase  amount for a new credit card purchase has been fixed at $5.00.
     
     Note, this will not impact users with existing Store Credits in any way.  Existing Store Credits will be used to offset purchases made on the store till such time as all the Store Credits are used up.
     
    Thank you for your understanding.
     

    Estimado Usuario de la Tienda Digital,
     
     Como resultado de la retroalimentación recibida de varios usuarios, estamos simplificando el proceso de compra en la Tienda Digital. Pronto podrá realizar compras directas con su tarjeta de crédito, sin tener que comprar primero los créditos. Pero tenga en cuenta que debido a los cargos de procesamiento de tarjetas de crédito impuestos por los proveedores, el monto mínimo de compra será 5.00 US dólares.
     
     Tenga en cuenta, que esto no afectará de ninguna manera a los usuarios que ya hayan comprado los créditos. Los créditos existentes se utilizarán para compensar las compras realizadas en la tienda digital hasta que se agoten todos los créditos comprados.
     
    Gracias por su comprensión.
     

Kamlesh D. Patel

KAMLESH D. PATEL

Kamlesh D. Patel is the current President of Shri Ram Chandra Mission as well as the managing trustee of the Sahaj Marg Spirituality Foundation.

Like the Sahaj Marg spiritual guides before him, he does not like to be called ‘Guru’ or ‘Master’, reminding us that the only real Guru is God. He is a spiritual guide whose only interest is to serve humanity. He is unassuming and a private person, without any need for fame or the limelight. He has asked his followers to continue to call him Kamlesh bhai, meaning brother Kamlesh.

Kamlesh bhai was born in Gujarat, India. He graduated from Ahmedabad University with honours in pharmacy, and moved to the US where he established himself successfully as a pharmacist in New York City. He is married and has two sons.

His craving for spiritual evolution started in childhood, and lead him while still a student to the feet of his teacher, Ram Chandra of Shahjahanpur (Babuji), the Founder-President of Shri Ram Chandra Mission. He embraced the Sahaj Marg practice with great enthusiasm and devotion and continued to serve in different roles under the guidance of Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari, Babuji's successor and the second President of Shri Ram Chandra Mission.

He has excelled in both the material life and spiritual life, and encourages the youth of today by telling that the purpose of life is to excel in everything that we do.

Parthasarathi Rajagopalachari announced Kamlesh D. Patel as his successor in October 2011. On the 20th of December 2014, Kamlesh D. Patel became the spiritual guide of Sahaj Marg system and the President of Shri Ram Chandra Mission.
