Man is under a great trial with his will power and freedom of choice. He is a candidate for Paradise or Hell. On the other hand, man has gathered the characteristics of most of beings, animate or inanimate, in the world. He could be as hard as rock or as soft as cotton.

NO, We need SEERS.........people who have tasted absolute truth.......who can give light to a few genuine seekers around!
