Their goal may be different than yours, but with their experience and knowledge, they can empower you to achieve your goal!


With no concrete plans and actions, they participate in the most celebrated rat-race.

With a weak purpose of life, often limited to just money at the expense of health or even family, they live a mediocre life.

“It’s impossible for you. You are a normal person like us. Think down to earth.”, is their most frequent advice.

Stealing a person of his time and energy, such association makes a person act against his interest!

Krishna informs in Bhagavad Gita 2.62, the type of association determines the types of desires a person will acquire. And to achieve the goal, a burning desire is required.
