Anybody who has a Tulasi wood necklace around his neck, even if he is unclean or performs many bad activities, he is taken with full respect…

Thought Of The Day

If you associate, infect tamasic, ignorance, then you go down and down, become animal. And if you associate with goodness, then you go higher planetary system, even up to God. And if you infect rajo-guna, passion, then you remain here. Everything is there. Simply we have to accept and do it nicely. Then our life is successful. That we are teaching.

365 steps towards perfection

Suppose that we invest our hard earned money in a company’s share which promises to give a very high return at the end of the year.

Probably no one because the company would have lost…
