Suffering Ends the Day Man Realizes That He Is Unaffected By Time

We suffer in this world because of the false identification of the body and sense organs with the soul. All problems and suffering cease to exist the day man realizes that he is unaffected by Time.
Meditate upon the Supreme Truth that is present in each cell in the human body. Know that Supreme Truth to be the creator, omnipresent, free from all defects and the treasure trove of knowledge.
Liberation is only possible by knowing that Supreme Truth.
Cosmic illusion or Maya can be wiped out only through destroying the desire for sense objects. Follow Dharma by doing all acts as an offering to the Supreme Truth.
