Man lives in the sanctuary of God. His life is in love, in bliss, in
wisdom, in God-consciousness. He lives in the realm of universal
existence. He moves on earth and he lives in the land of God, in the
divine ground of Being far above human vision and far beyond human
How one man, one band can & does change the world. An idea whose time
has come can not be stopped.
On this night of 10000 dreams
shines through every being,
the Light of Meditation
awakens in each heart-abode,
we are filled with Divine Love,
we ascend like doves of peace,
the eternal Om has called us Home.
“Meditation is the direct means of enjoying the greatest happiness and is the only means to quench the thirst for happiness on earth.”
“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower, and draws all good things toward you. Allow your love to nourish yourself as well as others. Do not strain after the needs of life. It is sufficient to be quietly alert and aware of them. In this way life proceeds more naturally and effortlessly. Life is here to Enjoy!”
