We all are on the lookout for permanent peace

We all are burdened by the weight of our ego, expectations, haughtiness, self-glorification, desire, anger and frustrations.

We all are again burdened by the difficulties and sorrows of the world.

Amidst all these burdens, we all are also on the lookout for permanent peace.

We cannot have peace with all these burdens. Therefore, we have to unload this entire burden with the help of knowledge.

Permanent peace is only possible by understanding who we really are.
We will attain peace the moment we drop the idea of the other. When we are able to realize that all that is here rise and fall in a single source, all our sufferings and misunderstandings will be removed.
