What's New

The love and friendship of the guru are something that is hard for us to understand, much less accept. We, who are limited in time and space, naturally relate to the guru in the same way. How often I’ve thought and heard others say, “If only I had been with Master.*” This thought, sweet though…

Resolve, this coming year, to appreciate the value of time. For how is it possible to solve all the mysteries of the Soul in one short life span unless we make the most of each year?

When the mind is receptive, you can more readily conquer your problems. Calmness, concentration, condensation of experience, and regular practice of meditation will enable you to master your own destiny.”
