If you really want to succeed in life, you must contact the source of success – God. God is the source of success. So many people came and say to me: "We have done our best. But why have we failed? Why have we not succeeded in life?"


I narrated to them the story of a little boy who was moving on the road, with his father beside him. The son found a huge stone lying in the middle of the road. And he said to his father, "I want to remove this stone, lest some pedestrian should trap on it and get hurt."


"Go ahead son," said the father.


The little boy tried to lift up the stone. He struggled hard; he perspired; he put his very best. But try as he might, he could not lift the stone. Dejected and frustrated, he said to his father, "I have put forth my best efforts, but I have failed."


"Where have you put forth your best efforts?" asked the father, "Here I am, I have been standing by your side all the time. All that you needed to do was to turn to me and ask me to help you. And my strength would be your strength. In that added strength, you could have effortlessly lifted that stone."


Our Heavenly Father is always by our side. All we have to do is to turn to him for help and we will never fail us.

Deepavali Message !!!

Deepavali Message !!!


"Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya"


"Out of darkness lead me into light," is a prayer offered by millions all over the world.


All around us today there is darkness – the darkness of selfishness, hatred and greed.


The human birth is an opportunity to behold the Light of the Light of lights, the ever living light which keeps on burning in the cave of the heart. Not all the hurricanes and tornadoes of the world can extinguish the Light.


I close my eyes, I see darkness. I sit in silence. I sink deeper and deeper in the silence of the soul. I pause for a few minutes, several times a day, to contact the diveine center within. I behold a patch of white light in my forehead. The patch grows into a full orbit of light which illuminates the plexus of a thousand petals and my entire being is filled with light. And I sing the Deepavali song:


Wherever I turn

I behold Thee

And Thee alone!


This it is to celebrate the Deepavali. It comes to remind us that I and my neighbor are not apart from each other. We are parts of the One Whole.
