    If you are sad n in pain, Be as the ocean, and release. The ocean tides don't pause and hold in anything, they ebb...and then they flow. Only briefly holding on top of a wave for a moment. If something from your past bubbles up, simply take a deep breath, and let it go. More love!

  • This is what's truely important in our life...
    If one wants to understand it comprehensively that too in today's context of bhakti (as we are surrounded by negetive forces pulling us away from shradhha towards god) the person must read its full explanation in eknathi with the permission of his guru....these traits are explained there in many pages ,  there's guruprem in every single word of eknath maharaj....

    Jay jay ram krishna hari
    जिस कर्म से भगवद प्रेम और भक्ति बढ़े वही सार्थक उद्योग हैं।
    ॐ साईं राम
