Look within and realize what we really are

To be free from jealousy, desire and greed is to invite godliness in us.

Our body and mind should be the abode of God. But sadly we are filling it up with all sort of rubbish.

All this rubbish has hidden God present in us. What we call spirituality or spiritual knowledge is the removal of these rubbishes.

All Teerth yatras, pilgrimages, Vrats, fastings, rituals and quests are for removing the veil of anger, jealousy, desire and greed, which is stopping us for knowing what we really are.
Look within and realize what we really are.
