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.

You will achieve it only when your mind is clear...

Shivaratri 2012 with Sri Swami Vishwananda

It doesn’t matter which path you follow or which sadhana you are doing. How you are doing it is the most important. When you love to do something, you are not disturbed by anything. When you love to do the work that you are doing – let’s say that someone, for example, loves to be a carpenter – you would see how much Love he projects into his work, because he would do it with a full focus. I love painting. I love to paint, because it brings you to such a focus that nothing will disturb you, not even people around you who are talking. Have you ever painted? How many among you paint? That’s nice. So you know what I am talking about. It’s not only about painting. Anything that you do, when you love what you are doing, you will come to that focus that nothing will disturb you. There can be lots of people, thousands of people around you, but you will always be in that focus. That’s what sadhana is – to discipline yourself with such an intensity. It’s not that you become narrow- minded – this has nothing to do with it – but it’s to find what you are looking for. Even if you don’t find it in one month, it doesn’t matter, or in one year, still it doesn’t matter. There are yogis who have been meditating hundreds of years. I will not say that they have not found it, but they are in this deepness with themselves, with the Lord inside of them. The Kingdom of God, Christ always talked about it, didn´t He? How many times He talked about it when He was here. He said “The Kingdom of God is near.” Yet people are waiting for the palace, the Kingdom to appear, but it is here, inside of you, this inner kingdom. You will achieve it only when your mind is clear, when you are clear with yourself, when the mind becomes pure and clear. Sadhana helps you to control your mind. There are many forms of sadhana. Each person has their own way, their own practice that they feel close with.
