Sanatana dharma does not ask us to believe in a God seated on a golden throne, high above the clouds. God is not a limited being. God is all pervasive, omnipotent and omniscient. God is the Principle of Life and the Light of Consciousness within us. God, who is pure Bliss, is verily our own Self.

Religion is the secret of life. It teaches us to love, to serve, to forgive, to endure, and to interact with our brothers and sisters with empathy and compassion. Advaita (non-duality) is a purely subjective experience. But in daily life it may be expressed as love and compassion. This is the great lesson taught by the great saints and sages of India, the exponents of Sanatana Dharma.

The truth “I exist” is self-evident. You may deny God by saying, “God is just a belief,” but existence cannot be refuted. That existence, that Cosmic Power, is God. God has no separate hands, legs, eyes, or body, other than our own. He moves through our hands, He walks with our legs, He sees through our eyes, and it is He who beats within the heart of each one of us.

Each family should grow trees and plants in their yard. Planting a tree is selfless service to society. Just as we enjoy the presence of trees planted by people in the past, we too should plant for the future generations. If we haven't done any selfless acts, we should plant a tree or sapling; that would be a truly selfless deed, benefiting others and ourselves.

Forests are being destroyed and apartment complexes erected in their place. Many birds build nests in these complexes. if we take a close look at these nests, we will see that they have been made with wires and pieces of plastic. This is because trees are decreasing. In the future, there may be no trees at all. The birds are learning to adapt to their new environment.

Humanity is dependent on nature for its very existence. In truth, we are not protecting nature - it is nature who protects us.

Children, Divine love is our true nature. it is shining in each and every one of us. When your heart is full of innocent love, you are absent; the ego is absent. In that state, only love is present; individuality disappears, and you become one with the Divine.

When there is no more aversion or hostility - that is love. When every aversion disappears from the mind, the mind transforms into love. It becomes like sugar: anyone can come and take from it, enjoying its sweetness without having to give anything in return. When you can love and serve humanity, you become food for the world.

If the sun shines down into a thousand different pots filled with water, the reflections are many, but they are each reflecting the same sun. Similarly, if we come to know who we truly are, we will see ourselves in all people. When this understanding arises, we learn to consider others, overlooking their weaknesses. From that, pure love will dawn from within.

Whether it is spiritual love or worldly love, love remains love. The difference is only in depth and degree. Spiritual love is without limits or boundaries, while worldly love is superficial and limited. Awaken to the knowledge, 'I am the Supreme Self; I am unlimited, and I have infinite potential inside me.'

Children, some say there are believers who lead unhappy lives. However, true believers, those endowed with real faith, are happy and content in all situations. The sign of a true devotee is that they always have a smile of acceptance on their face.

We must have faith that God is always with us. This awareness will give us the energy and enthusiasm that we need to transcend any obstacle in life. This optimistic attitude should never leave us.

Just like any other decision, happiness is also a decision. We should make the firm decision:"Whatever may come my way, I will be happy. I am courageous and I am not alone. God is with me."

The sweetness and bliss bestowed by desireless devotion is something unique. Though advaita (the state of non-duality) is the ultimate Truth, Mother sometimes feels that it is all meaningless and would instead like to remain just an innocent child in front of God.

There is great benefit in following the path of Bhakti (devotion). One will get bliss from the very beginning. Thus one will be encouraged to perform sadhana (spiritual practice). In other paths like pranayama (control of breath), bliss will be gained only at the end. Just as one gets fruit even from the base of a jackfruit tree, Bhakti is the path that gives fruit from the very beginning.

Children, all of spirituality can be put into one word, and that word is shraddha. Shraddha is the unconditional faith that the disciple has in the words of the Master and the scriptures.

Faith is not an intellectual process. The Master cannot be understood through the mind or intellect. Faith alone is the way.

Love will swallow you. It will eat you up completely until there is no 'you', and there is only Love. Your whole being will be transformed into love. Spiritual Love culminates in Unity, in Oneness

When we see Mother Nature as the embodiment of God, we will automatically serve and protect her. If we approach nature with love, it will serve us as our best friend, a friend that won't let us down.

There is a child
within everyone.
The desire to search
for this child is felt
by all living beings...

This child like innocence
deep within you is God.
