To experience My power, you must first become a rigorous spiritual seeker. Then only you will experience My power, compassion, affection, protection, and redemption from sin.

God is not pleased with externals. He is pleased with the inner feelings. Inner feeling is an eternal power.

People who believe Me by mind, action and speech, leaving all other dharmas behind, are really blessed people.
