None can get discretion instantly. Thus monk desiring liberation, be awaken. In the last phase of life you will be without remissness so leave this idealness, get rid of lust and merriments. Try to know the world very well. Keep merged in equanimity and  being a guard to senses and mind without any remissness walk in the world.






From Acharya Mahashraman

Science benefits religion

Common people without hesitation say science has killed the religion. I believe that nothing else has fostered religion as science has. If science had not explode and discovered the world of the subtle modes and subtle truths then the many dogmatic philosophers would have turned more violent and that would have resulted in many more conflicts.The third eye of philosophers is not open yet and so there is constant dialogue and argument. They see only with two eyes.

Nowadays there are discoveries made everyday.They are engrossed in research. Science has presented many subtle truths before us. It has helped express many  unmanifested modes. Some beliefs that fell into the category of superstitions just a few years ago are now proven scientific facts.
