Life can seem like an impenetrable jungle, with danger lurking at every bend, every corner. It is easy to feel lost and hopeless when faced with the problems of life and with most people around us in similar or worse state than us. Luckily, there is a way out. The answers can only be found in the revealed scriptures of the Sanatan Dharma. But the scriptures are so voluminous, written in a script which is difficult to comprehend or at-least learning another language, and sometimes they seem to contradict one another. How can one find answer, the authentic manual to lead and live this sophisticated of all forms of life, i.e., human life with a smile? ... It is impossible for mere mortals to understand and find answers from the revealed scriptures.

Happiness is the Quest
Every individual soul in the universe has a natural desire for unlimited happiness due to being an eternal part of Shri Krishna, who is the very embodiment of existence, knowledge, and divine bliss.
Although there are numerous theories prevalent in the world regarding the means to attain this bliss, or infinite happiness, all of them can be classified irrefutably into only two categories: Spiritualism and Materialism. One who identifies the self as the soul is a spiritualist, and the one who identifies the self with the body is a materialist.
Although both condemn one another, in my opinion, both are ignorant. Just as body and soul have an eternal harmonious relationship, likewise Spiritualism and Materialism are equally indispensable. You can practice spiritual discipline only if you keep your body healthy, and in turn, the very existence of the body depends entirely on the soul.
The infinite happiness the individual soul desires incessantly can be attained only through the grace of Shri Krishna, which He showers only upon completely surrendered souls. The first step to receive His grace is to acquire true spiritual knowledge from a Guru, who is well versed in scriptures and has a practical experience of God. By sincerely following the spiritual discipline specified by such a Guru, your heart will begin to purify. When your heart becomes completely purified you will attain divine, unlimited, and everlasting happiness through the Guru’s grace
The only spiritual discipline that will completely purify the heart is the practice of Navadha Bhakti (nine-fold devotion) to Shri Krishna. Chant the glory of His divine names, forms, attributes, pastimes, abodes, and saints. Shed tears of love and continuously increase the longing to see your beloved Shri Krishna. Abandon all desires, even the desire for the five kinds of liberation (sarupya, salokya, samipya, sarshti and sayujya).
The mind alone must surrender and practice devotion to Shri Krishna. Therefore, always keep the mind engaged in the constant loving remembrance of Shri Krishna and His names, forms, attributes, pastimes, abodes, and saints. While doing this, perform all your necessary duties pertaining to the maintenance of your physical body. In this way, live in the world with your mind absorbed in the loving thoughts of God and your body performing all your essential duties. This is the essence of the entire Geeta known as karm-yog and the quintessence of the philosophy of the Vedant, known as gyan-yog.
Poojniya Raseshwari Devi Ji (Maa) is supremely empowered to spread the Radha-Krishna devotion in a practical and straightforward way, just appropriate for the modern world. Without compromising the teachings of Shri Maharaj Ji even slightly, She presents its esoteric truths in a clear and intelligible manner, suitable for both the laymen and the scholars. Her teachings have given my life a new direction while dealing with my personal as well as professional life

It was a magical experience when I met her for the first time. Her enlightening speech and melodious kirtan mesmerized me and I felt deeply connected. The love and care from Devi Ji made me spiritually open. Her way of answering a doubt is very unique and imprinting, which ultimately enhances the realization. The wisdom she imparts in me takes me through in my personal as well as professional life. A true definition of a saint.

I met you in 2018 during a South London spiritual program. Your proximity and grace made me learn about the importance of human life, it’s purpose and true meaning of happiness. The learnings and experience with you has been life changing. You have been putting continuous selfless effort to drive my spiritual progress all this time in different forms - such as continuous learnings, meditation techniques and soulful kirtans and prayers. Thank you, Maa, for everything!
