Travels and Conversations with Daaji, 1 – 8 April 2018

The next stage of the journey: Hosur Peace, meditation and higher states of consciousness   Daaji: The essence of the Bhagavad Gita is this: happiness can only be had when we are at peace. When we are restless, can we enjoy happiness? It sounds paradoxical. How to arrive at peace? Lord Krishna says we arrive at peace only through contemplation. How is that possible?
