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.

He’s neither male nor female.......

Someone asked me “Swamiji, why do you always say God as Him?” God is also Her, but in the world we always use words which have limits. God is beyond all these things, like Narayana for example. He takes the appearance of Mohini Devi or Shakti when He has to show that He’s beyond this duality. He’s neither male nor female. He’s beyond this concept. He loves everybody equally, but in the mind of Man there is this concept, there is this duality. As long as we think of this duality, we’ll have the duality, but if we think of ourselves as being the Spirit, like Christ said, we will become this Spirit. This is what you have to identify yourself as. The more you identify yourself with the body, the more you limit yourself. The more you identify yourself as the Spirit, as this droplet of the ocean, the more your longing will be to be back in the ocean. I guess that’s what all of you want, no? It has to be a “Yes” from within. It’s not about how loud it is. You can scream “Yes!!” or whatever, but if you don’t mean it, it will not happen. Somebody can be quiet, but when he’s meaning it inside, it will help.
