Week of May 04 - May 10, 2015

There is no greater experience than to feel and know that the Divine Mother is with you. Look for the presence of the Divine Mother. Whether your trouble is sorrow, pain, or sickness, She will look after you in every way. When you want wisdom, pray to God as the Divine Father; and when you want solace, pray to God as the Divine Mother.”

 - Paramahansa Yogananda
