Sagely Quote

Not through the divine visions but through the level of your detachment to worldly matters. When we move towards Sun our shadow is behind, when we move away from Sun the shadow is right in front. So when we are moving towards God our problems are behind us and do not scare us. Moving towards God is chanting his Nama. Name and God is one and the same.
