Lust for power, material greed, sensual excitement, selfishness, passion, passion for wealth
and the lower appetites have drawn man from his true life in Spirit into the materialistic life. He can
regain his lost Divine glory if he practises in right earnest the principles of Bhakti. Bhakti
transmutes animal nature into Divine Nature and raises him to the pinnacle of Divine glory and
May you develop Bhakti so that it will lead you to attain Godhead or Self-Realisation in this
very life! May the spiritual flame grow brighter in you!
