We can use our senses and mind in proper direction to get success. Everyone has a power of consciousness. Once you understand it, you will get the mantra of successful life. As long as you don’t discover your life, you have not understood your life! In this sankul everyone can come together, devote, worship, get peace of mind, and prosper.”
