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.

Sri Swami Vishwananda tells us a Story about a Sadhu

There was once a great Sadhu in a great Divine ecstasy. He fell down in the middle of the road. He was in Samadhi. A few hours later, a thief was passing by. As the thief was passing by, he saw the Sadhu on the road and he said to himself “This must be a thief, that last night had been stealing. Now he is tired, he is just resting. The policemen will come and get him. “ Then he went away. Next came a drunkard. He saw the Sadhu lying down and said “Oh you fell down. You drunk too much. Look at me, I am still standing.” He went his way. Third came another Sadhu. When this Sadhu saw the other Sadhu in great Samadhi, he knew that he was in Samadhi. He sat down near him and started pressing his legs. This shows how our mind functions. We will always see what we have inside of ourselves. Christ has said “Don’t judge your brothers. Don’t try to remove the speck of your brothers, the splinter in the eyes of your brother, when you have a big pole in your eyes.”
