Those services are supposed ...

Failure is Not Having a Goal to Accomplish

Failure-is-Not-Having-a-Goal-to-Accomplish
Today, it is our great fortune that a great mystic, a sculptor, has taken us in his expert hands. When a disciple starts to walk on the path of enlightenment, sometimes he becomes upset, tired, and puzzled. Do you know why? It is because we continuously think of our vices.

Drown In The Ocean of Love

Drown In The Ocean of Love
When it comes to offering our love, then, why is it so that our love for the Guru is not as pure or as clear? Let us close our eyes and glance into our hearts and honestly discern whether our True Guru "alone" is the Lord of that space. Are we really doing that prem-sadhna which is marked by purity?

There is no ambiguity in it at all. But when God descends...
