Week of October 09  - October 15, 2017

“A great study of character is to be had in the analysis of the eyes and the emotions.  But the greatest way to learn about character is by soul intuition.  If you remain calm you will be able to feel intuitively and exactly the nature of each man you meet.”

Paramahansa Yogananda
