When Swamiji asked his Gurudev for advice on his journey to the West, his master replied: “To obtain freedom from all fear is the first message of the Himalayan sages. The second message is to be aware of the Reality within. Be spontaneous and let yourself become an instrument to teach spirituality without any confusion of religion or culture. All spiritual practices should be verified scientifically, if science has the capacity to do so. Let Providence guide you.”
