“We have discovered a lot about our home planet, we now even know much more about our universe
BUT
We haven’t been able to keep the peace and live as civilized, intelligent beings should live.
The “Self”, which is a combination of greed, resentment, and competition, is still the Master!”

The vital essence of life
The embryo of the future
The foundation of existence
Woman, mother, daughter and sister
Eradicate them, and there is nothing”
