I would also like to share that the universe does respond to sincere prayers, if one has complete faith. I had, in this group, sought a solution for bringing rain to particular district in TN, which has been drought affected for the last three years. I chanted regularly, the mantra given by Naran Sir.... "Rained from the all powerful mystery Above" whenever I was there. And you would be surprised to know, that a tank which was not filled in 20 years got filled up, there was abundant rain, and as I thanked the divine for answering the prayers, it immediately rained. I felt so connected with the divine source. The mantras do have immense power.
