Thus, he proved that we could achieve anything in this world through peace and non-violence. Indians have the strength to win hearts of others. Even today, we can see wars in this world to extend dynasties. Likewise, a war will also be going in our souls against the problems of our lives. If we want to overcome all those problems, we should follow spirituality. We can attain eternal peace through prayers. Prayers gives us inner peace. Human beings should develop a habit of accepting both failures and successes equally. We should learn how to live happily with whatever we have. God is both inside and outside our souls. When we understand it, it helps us to achieve something good,” he said.

God has gifted us the strength to think. We should use it and try to solve all the problems in our lives. We face several confusions in our lives. We should balance them and continue our journey.

Hindu religion embraces everything and everyone. Hindu religion has given the world the all-time truth ‘Sarve Janaha Sukhinobhavantu’ (Let everyone live happily). An individual can make spiritual achievements only when his life is clean. We should always remember god and dedicate time daily for meditation and pooja along with other activities.
