Essence: “We are not the body, but spirit, living spark within this body. We really are somebody, part of God’s family and he loves us. He reciprocates equally with all living entities. But if we leave Spiritual World and are lost in this material world, we are nobody. If we want to be happy we have to go back to Spiritual World…That should be our ultimate goal of life…What is the process to return to Spiritual World? The easiest and most sublime process to awaken love for God is to chant his Holy Names.”
