"DIVINE LIGHT dwells within all beings and illuminates the universe. Realizing this truth through the grace of the Sadguru is the goal of human life.
The secret of a successful life lies in meditation on the SELF. Meditation occurs spontaneously through Shaktipat.
Only a Siddha Guru is capable of giving Shaktipat Deeksha by HIS divine word, touch, glance and thought."
- SWAMI CHETANANANDA SARASWATI

ILLS OF MATERIAL WORLD
The material world is full of filth and evils. Whatever one attains which is not within one's own rights and merits, one has to repay with premium. Consequently, whoever rises is sure to fall, whoever gains is certain to loose, whoever enjoys must also suffer, whoever earns name and fame are bound to be defamed and discredited in course of time - those who were once worshipped by most, would be dishonoured and abused in the long run. Therefore, all pride, self praise, vanity, ostentation and so called 'Pratishtha' etc are considered by the wise as very low types of aspirations. Unmerited and unjust as their gains are such people cannot even enjoy freedom or peace but are always in fear of loosing their possessions. Therefore during their life time on earth they dwell almost in hell and surely after death, their souls find abode in hell. This is because they gave precedence to their materialistic gains and possessions - questionably acquired - at the cost of their fellow human beings. Such people are absolutely ignorant of the consequences of their poisonous superiority complex which leads to various crimes and unholy competition and most hideous form of slavery. This tendency cannot be curbed easily, but when one begins to reject such earthly low desires or aspirations and realizes their futility and inadequacy then only can they taste the freedom of mind and shun the evils of this material world.

“THE GREATNESS OF HUMAN LIFE
Man, who becomes Super-Man by realizing his Supreme Self through Divine Grace, is the best replica of God, the Almighty, in His blessed creation. He is the highest in the order of evolution of living beings because of his emotional, intellectual, intuitional and verbal powers of feeling, thinking, cognizing and expressing genius of extraordinary type.
By developing these exceptional powers scientifically, man contemplates to control the whole universe and become the greatest power in the whole world. Though he has succeeded to a great extent in this mad adventure, he has utterly failed in his main purpose of becoming more happy and secure. So, he cannot claim real greatness in the world as he has neither achieved real and enduring happiness, nor overcome grief or misery.
Having known the ephemeral nature of the world through acute discrimination, he who leads a pure life of dispassion and spiritual discipline of serving a real Guru, and gets absorbed in his own Real Nature, is truly the blessed and liberated person, who is also the happiest and the greatest in the world"
