Spirituality- the gateway to the universal peace
Spirituality is a mental condition which continues to regenerate our mind, body and soul leading to a perfect and positive state of mind. Spiritual growth implies the mastery of patience which in turn allows the unfolding of destiny to proceed at its own pace leading to the ultimate satisfaction in all walks of human life.

Spirituality leads a person to raise his thought above the level of material world and helps in eradicating negative thoughts from within.

People search for the inner peace but it is always there within themselves in the form of spirit in their soul. The human nature of tolerance, forgiveness, humbleness, compassion, the spirit of co-existence and the fear of Almighty makes our thought positive and deeds successful.

In order to achieve the ultimate success in life, it is well said that “Never be in hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset”. Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank. Rather it is measured by your discipline, calmness and inner peace.

To sum up, Spirituality correlates not only the humanity but the whole Universe in its quest to spread the message of love, peace and equality amongst everything where ever there is life and therefore “the Spirituality is the Gateway to the Universal Peace”.
