Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual journey was fascinating to read. I also watched old classic movies from the 60’s and the 70’s. Besides this, I rearranged the house, I painted and had positive conversations with my family members, motivating them to be optimistic. I also spent a lot of time with nature. I learnt to live every moment of my life and I want to continue doing this.”Ask him what was his biggest achievement in life and he says, “It was realizing that I can stay home with minimal clothes, shoes, no outside food and dinner, no weekend parties, no movies and no travelling. Basically, living a simple life. ”Talking about his future plans, he says, “I am looking forward to getting back to work, something I enjoy the most.”
