Swami Harinamananda on his pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash: “We want to make sure nothing out there cannot be covered by something in the backpack. As you start to walk, you start to notice how heavy your backpack is, your back starts to ache, you feel soreness in your lower back. You overloaded yourself. You don’t need half of things you packed. The first thing you packed into your backpack is fear.
When you need something, and there is no way of getting it, that’s when the magic of the divine comes. Maybe part of the reason we don’t experience magic in our lives is that we factored the divine out of our lives.”
This Sunday, 28 May 2017 at 11:00 am, Swami Harinamananda will give a talk Discovering Yourself.
We hope to see you here.
