Our Outer World is a reflection of our Inner world. We can attain and accumulate a lot of wealth but still feel void inside us. This mantra guides us towards the path to attain that inner abundance, inner wealth and prosperity. Only when we connect to that creator, that source of all the creation and understand that we are all one and connected, and nothing outside is permanent, nothing which is created in time is permanent, we stop that search for prosperity in the outside world and start looking inside us. And how can we start our journey towards this path of inner prosperity. By Meditating during the Amrit Vela( Amrit Vela is referred to early hours in the morning, around 3:30Am to 5AM) . During this time, the meditation is most fruitful.
