The living statuesThere are two statues outside our meeting room in the Royal Garden Village Hotel that are not like regular statues at all. They actually have a living presence. They are very beautiful and soulful, and are sincerely aspiring.
I have blessed these two statues very nicely, and Nayana has put two garlands around them.
Already they have human souls. They are absolutely like living beings! They should have a human incarnation.
