Our Prime Goal
Speaking about the prime member of our nation, the farmers, we should also know the prime goal to be achieved from this human life. That goal is the attainment of Supreme God Kabir and salvation. With such growth in technology, people have turned into atheists. This is because we remained untouched with the true method of worship to attain God. People are getting comforts from their destiny and they become satisfied with whatever worship they are doing and consider that as authentic but it is not so. The Correct way of worship is the only way to attain more than our destiny and to attain happiness and salvation in one’s life.
Presently that worship to attain Supreme God Kabir (who is the creator of the universe and above any other God) is being given only by Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj from Haryana. With proofs and results given by Him it is very easy to believe that whatever He is giving is authentic. Rest is all fake around. To Know more read the Sacred book Gyan Ganga.
