This Mantra is for Understanding the true nature of what we call GOD, or the Creator of all this Universe. And How can we truly know, truly connect with that source. No matter what tricks we apply, we can fast, we can donate money, we can remain silent, but all this wont help us to connect with that source. Only when we fully surrender to his will, and understand that what we all are – just a creation of that one source. then all the chatter in mind stops, all the running around stops, we follow his will. We align ourselves to the universe. And how can we do that? When we follow our hearts, our true desire. Some how our souls already know what our true desire is. Thats the will of this universe. Thats your purpose in life. And when you totally surrender to his will, you will find yourself filled with energy, filled with positivity, filled will love, passion and happiness.
