"...recognize the source is within you, and thereby, recognize these natural forces of patience, forbearance, tolerance. Such sentiments arise from your purified and pacified mindfield showing their fruits in goodness, satiety, kindness and compassion.

Let it be a process of a different kind of awareness and a renewing quality of our selves thereby influencing in a positive way the well-being of many." Swami Ritavan Bharati
