"Devotion is a means as well as its true end when it grows into a full treasure. When devotion becomes a treasure, you will need nothing more for inner fullness or affluence. As devotion grows, it will begin to free you of all desire, hatred and fear. It will relieve poverty, either by making you amply resourceful or by taking away from you the very feeling of poverty. Devotion also will remove your weakness, generating untold strength and confidence."

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha



Growth consists in the quality of absorbing knowledge whenever and wherever it emerges and expressing its effects thereafter. In this twin process of absorption and expression lie the worth and essence of human life.

Watch your thoughts faithfully. Be equally attentive to your speech and behaviour to see whether the knowledge gained has been integrated well. Integrate what you read and hear, with the mind. Integrate the mind with your deeds. Integration thus is the sole word of growth and evolution. Be an integrated person.
