The way to prosperity and happiness is never through despair

The way to prosperity and happiness is never through despair. Motivate, rise with renewed energy and walk towards the goal.

Our ignorance does not change reality. Ignorance only creates misconception and misperception.

Once human beings did not believe in electricity but that did not mean electricity did not exist. The power hidden in the Supreme Truth is unimaginable, so keep an open mind. What is dream and fiction today, might become real in future.

Mental purity and overcoming weaknesses like anger and greed is necessary for spiritual and worldly success.
Once you realize that the Supreme Truth is within us, many good things will follow on its own.
