Discover the Powerful You: THE QUALITIES OF A TRUTH SEEKER

ઉત્તમ મુમુક્ષુ ના લક્ષણો

No one is born a Saint!!! But rather they achieve this state with the beautiful development of various spiritual qualities. All these Saints were ordinary people just like us….who mastered the balance of Spiritual and Material life while nurturing their Soul.They were TRUTH seekers and TRUTH Achievers.

For those who wish to be Truth Seekers, you may not know what characteristics you need to possess.

આપણે સૌ આત્મા છીએ અને પરમાત્મા બની શકીયે છીએ. પણ એના માટે સૌ પ્રથમ ઉત્તમ મુમુક્ષુ બનવું જરૂરી છે. સંસાર માં રહી, સત પરમાર્થ કેવી રીતના સાધવો એ ઉત્તમ મુમુક્ષુ જાણે છે. તો ચાલો આપણે પણ આ શિબિર દ્વારા એવા ઉત્તમ મુમુક્ષુ બનીયે:
