Once you recognise your infinite siddhis, you will realize that the nature has already ingrained all the necessary abilities in an individual’s consciousness to help you in creating the life that you want and becoming the master of your circumstances. My purpose of writing the book is to help readers to explore their infinite potential within and celebrate life’.
