Aditya in Texas wants to know why isn't the ultimate goal of Self Realization or Moksha so popular in Sanatana Dharma today?

Well Aditya, I think you would find that if you mixed around with mature Swami's in the United States who have come from India or who live in the United States you'd find them talking about Self Realization and the ultimate goal of Moksha. It's a very personal goal that needs guidance for attainment.

Those of you who are wrestling with the mind in your many endeavors to try to concentrate the mind, to try to meditate, to try to become quiet, to try to relax, keep trying. Every positive effort that you make is not in vain.
