Science is information... Spirituality is Transformation

We have this huge task of transforming the world and its climate to make it a better place to live. For that we need to transform ourselves first.

The time has come to shift focus from information to transformation. Transforming thought process, the sense of ownership and the mind space. The need of the hour is to realize that inner transformation can craft a greener earth, purer waters, cleaner air and clearer skies. When you dedicate yourself to transforming your inner world then your vision shifts from smaller to bigger goals.
