OM, dear Yogis and Yoginis ,If you're always chasing happiness, it will never be able to find you. Relax, simply give happiness a place to live in you, and it will be in great abundance.

om, one thing more, why are westeners in depression and anxiety, because they have money ,but not happiness in life.

my mean for westeners are europians, no family , no relations nothing,only money.
seniours are kicked off in old age homes, why because they all have no good guru to learn, i think they are heartless
many come to me , insearch of joy and happiness.

first i teach them to respect there elders,guru and parents.

a true life is very hard.
