SATSANGH – FEAR

In the Satsangh Pujya Vasudhaji explicated the emotion ‘fear’. Vasudhaji described fear as the greatest obstacle on the path of a spiritual seeker.

These things bind us and the fear of losing them creates fear.[…]

Our ‘Identity’ in this world and the Law of Karma

In today’s satsangh, Acharyaji spoke about our ‘identity’ in this world and the Law of Karma. Acharya says, every individual has ego which has got limitations.
