When you have the human body, then rouse the Atman within and say-I have reached the state of fearlessness!...and then as long as the body endures, speak unto others this message of
All truth is eternal. Truth is nobodyâ€™s property; no race, no individual can lay any exclusive claim to it. Truth is the nature of all souls.
If a thing happens once, it can happen again. If any human being has ever realised perfection, we too can do so. If we cannot become perfect here and now, we never can in any state or heaven or condition we may imagine.
