What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

What is the Spirit?

What is the spirit? That is the purpose of life, to Realise who you are. When you have realised that you are a drop in the unlimited ocean of love, life’s purpose will be fulfilled; because in life’s ocean, a drop is not the same as you understand, but it’s One with the Oneness. And that’s the evolution of the soul. It’s like I said before: Love thy neighbour. Until one realises this love within oneself, it’s difficult. You can say, “Swamiji, you are talking about love, but yet I don’t know what love is.” Yes, you don’t know it with the mind, you can’t understand it with the mind, but deep inside of you, all of you know it. You are here to realise this through your daily practice. You practise daily, I hope, eh? Well, what is practice? It’s to remind yourself of the Divine continuously in whatever you are doing. That’s yoga. If somebody just meditates and just prays in the outside only, without realising that the Lord that they are praying to is seated inside of the heart of each being, then it’s of no use. Realising first, through meditation and through your prayer, that the Lord is not on the outside, but is inside of you, you will see Him shining in everybody; because, until you realise the non-difference, you will always see the limitation. You know about Mahavatar Babaji. How many of you know Him? Oh, OK. Babaji is a Master in India. Actually He is about 5,000 years old, still alive. Because He is my Satguru, I can tell you something; of course here is just a picture, a drawing, and He looks very strict, actually. But I tell you, He is such an expression of love that it’s difficult with words to express it. Even the word love is limited to express this Love. And as He said to me once, if He achieved that, everybody can.
