abode of bhole nath

If we were capable of losing some of the SELF importance, two extraordinary things would happen to us. One, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur ; and , two , we would provide ourselves with enough energy to enter into SILENCE to catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the universe.
