Importance of inner self
Divorce rates are increasing all over the world, everyone is suffering from some disease or another, world is witnessing violent clashes every now and then. The reason behind such disturbing fact is man himself. In his pursuit to amass wealth, he has left his inner self-way behind. He is so busy in trivial of life that he has forgotten the larger meaning of life. Life is much more than increasing bank balance, having designer wears and possessing the latest gizmos.

What is the benefit of his success if he cannot sleep without taking pills or spent time with his family? An individual today has lost his way; he is moving too fast to know the direction of his movement.
Even if he is moving in right direction, he does not stop to rest. After all, a car that does not stop for fueling during its journey will never be able to reach its destination.

He may have the latest mobile phone and is available to anybody and everybody at anytime of the day but not himself. He is too occupied in communicating with the outside world that he has no time for himself.
The increase in stress related diseases, depression and other physical problems are an indicator of spiritual deficiency in man.
