Difference Between HIV and AIDS
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that causes chronic diseases such as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). AIDS is the last stage of HIV infection. HIV can easily spread from one body to another but not AIDS. HIV destroys the human immune system, which helps to fight many germs in our body. AIDS is not treated with drugs, but the HIV virus can be controlled. Still, there is a spiritual solution to the problem.
History of World AIDS Day
HIV was first found in animals. Some doctors and scientists believe that HIV was transmitted to humans by a baboon, the Gorilla. One of the main reasons for the spread of the virus was the illicit relationship between the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s capital Kinshasa and the use of infected needles in drug stores, etc.
In the 1960s, the virus spread from Africa to the Caribbean and gradually spread to almost every country in the world. AIDS was identified in 1981 and studies showed that AIDS is a deadly disease caused by HIV.

HIV / AIDS Can Not Be Cured by Medical Science but by Sat-Bhakti
Scientists are working to find a cure for HIV / AIDS. But, as of now, there is no scientific cure for the disease. However there is a spiritual way to cure it forever. Man’s journey of life begins at birth. Destiny is determined in advance. The Enlightened Sant Rampal Ji’s sacred book “Way of Living” gives a detailed description of man’s journey through life. The goal of humans (male / female) is to gain salvation. There are holes and thorns for sins and good deeds in the way of man. A person can achieve salvation by doing worship based on the scriptures.
After taking the initiation (Naam Diksha) from SatGuru Rampal Ji, the Supreme God removes all the problems as the soul is united with the Supreme God. If the devotee remains devoted to the Supreme God faithfully then the Almighty sweeps all obstacles, the thorns of sinful deeds, from his way of life. The devotee easily gets to his destination. What did God do for that soul? Sant Garibdas ji described it in the knowledge obtained from the Supreme God Kabir ji: –
Garib, Pativrata zameen par, Jyon-jyon dhar hai paavae |
Samrath jhaadu det hai, Na kaanta lag jaavae ||
The sins that hinder the way of the bhakti are destroyed by doing Sat-Bhakti.
Kabir, Jab hi Satyanaam hridya dharo, Bhayo paap ko naash |
Jaise chingaari agni ki, Padae puraane ghaas ||
