This whole universe is a play of Prana (life force/energy). Everything has some Prana, but the units differ. Stone has one unit, water two, fire three, air units, ether units, animals and trees have 6 - 7 units.

You often see that every god/goddess travels on an animal. Goddess Durga riding on a tiger and God Ganesha sitting on a mouse. It doesn’t click to the intellect, but this is so scientific. It symbolises that each animal brings down a particular type of cosmic vibration on the planet. Lord Krishna has the highest units of Prana – 16. That is why He is referred to as fully blossomed being. A human being has eight units of Prana. Hence he is called as Ashtavasu. And humans are born with a possibility to blossom into a fully blossomed state.

So, different energies are present in the consciousness and everything is connected. It’s a network. Everything here radiates vibrations, and those vibrations make things happen around you. True communication happens through vibrations. In fact we convey almost all thoughts through our presence and very little through words. Are you aware that sometimes for no reasons you feel like talking to some people and, sometimes for no reason you want to avoid some people? A baby or a dog conveys the vibrations of love that no speaker can express.

We are all endowed with this presence, yet somewhere our presence has got muddled up. We are storing negative things that we have seen and heard in our aura. But there is a way to cleanse our presence and get back to our source. Through breathing techniques, meditation and mantras we can rekindle positive vibrations within and around us. Spiritual practices and meditation connects you to the Universal Spirit while mantras are those energising sounds which help uplift the consciousness.

Go deep inside yourself and experience supreme peace and love. This will take us closer to self- realisation and also to achieve success.
