“The paths leading man to god or Truth are said to be many. I will speak only of the shortest. It is to recognize God as the Self in you and then to find Him out. What is the distance then between you and God, between you and yourself? Ah, there is no distance at all, a full Zero! Yet, how dare you say to find God and Truth is hard?’’

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.
