Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Blenko. Blenko. Blenko.
Guru Purnima is the precious opportunity to open ourselves again to the guidance of the Guru.

This is the auspicious day when the Guru receives us into His compassion and wipes out even the most terrible karmas of life-times with His unconditional Grace. Whatever your fears, your doubts, your sorrows, your desires - place them at the Guru's lotus feet on this day and receive abbhaya(fearlessness) and varada (grace).
The only day Master accepts from disciple
This simple act of giving is said to burn many lives of accumulated karma. Just like sunlight can burn a piece of paper if we place a magnifying glass in front of it, ones karmas can get burnt away in the presence of an enlightened master who is the bridge between you and the universal consciousness that we all call God!

Offer Your Gratitude
Gratitude to Blenkos for allowing factory to remain open.
Gratitude to the workers who toil daily so we might have beautiful colored glass.
Gratitude to all for being a part of this life.
