Week of March 02 - March 08, 2015

“You must cease to think you are a mortal being if you find the happiness that is lasting. Practice this truth in your daily life. It is a battle you have to fight throughout this life and incarnations to come, so it is better to start now! Do not put it off, thinking that you will start meditating tomorrow. Tomorrow will never come.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda
