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 know there is a thing called dying while you are still alive, which means samadhi.....

To want Him means to devote oneself sincerely, to develop this pure Love that is already there, just to let
it out and let it spread around. With this devotion and pure Love, one will realise that the Divine is not outside, but it is inside, in this microcosmic form of the Universe that He has implanted in us. When a yogi looks inside of himself, he doesn’t see in the same way that human beings see things, because human beings want to see many things. How many human beings want to see the Ultimate within them? If you haven’t found the Ultimate inside of you, how would you find the Ultimate outside? How would you find it in all His Creation? We say God pervades everything but how many people achieve this state? Very few! Like in the Gita, it said “Out of a million, only few will attain Him.” Through the Divine Names, which have been given, go inside. Utilise the Cosmic Names of God and attain Him. That’s what Shiva teaches us. That’s what all the Deities, if you analyse them properly, teach us: to realise this oneness with the Creator. We have to take time and be patient. Not in one month of spiritual practice will you attain the Divine, not even in one year! If you read the Vedas, if you read the Upanishads, you will see that it took yogis hundreds of years to attain the Divine, but it was that age. So it’s a lucky age now, because just by chanting the Divine Names you can attain Him. It’s so simple, no? You know there is a thing called dying while you are still alive, which means  samadhi. We will do a meditation and, if you do it properly, you can go into Samadhi. It doesn’t mean that you will die. No, you will come back again
