Travelling Light in the Journey of Life

Pujya Swamiji adds so beautifully to Sadhviji’s answer to the question of ‘How to Begin Our Inner Journey?’ by saying another important thing to remember on our journey is to travel light.

These artificial borders and boundaries amongst us and God that we have created are made by us, not by God. God has given the veto power to all of us. So what gets stuck? The senses get stuck because of mind. The mind also gets stuck...

To address this anxiety, sleeplessness and discontent, people take pills and fill their lives with excessive, material “pleasures”.
