  3. 01:30. What is happiness? What is grace? Anahita explains this idea with reference to religion, belief systems, spirituality, literature, philosophy, and the great visionaries.

    I learned that universal belief includes all creation, since everything exists within it. Therefore, I can accept it. How to lose ego, serve others, and experience the elation / grace?

    The best way to share happiness with others is to show them how good it is to be happy.

    I am very happy (and honored) to create this video interview (2012) with Anahita.

    Special thanks to Dear GuruDev (JGD). ---dr. /// © 2016 by David Rapoport. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
