Holy Sister Mohini Ahuja, Zonal Incharge Andhra Pradesh addressed a very well attended congregation in Amritsar, Punjab on Sunday, August 25, 2013. She said that even after blessings us with God-knowledge, Satguru remains our supreme guide and continues to teach us the art of living on the basis of Brahmgyan. It is he who tells us to live with love, humility and spirit of cooperation. Naturally, this keeps us away from tension and devotees carry a divine smile on their face.

Holy Sister Mohini Ji said that devotion turns an ordinary meal into Prasad (a blessing), water into Amrit (nectar) and a house into Mandir (temple). Devotion certainly makes our life noble and sublime. That is why Satguru advises us to seek the company of saints (Satsang), do Simiran (remembrance of God) and perform selfless service (Sewa).

Holy Sister Mohini Ji added that it is the duty of every devotee to live life as per the wisdom of the True Master. Otherwise, he or she may be influenced by ego which only leads to hatred, jealousy and violence. There is only pain and misery. Hence we must obey Satguru and stay happy, humble, and contented.
