When I was young, I never thought that I would be sending spiritual thoughts daily. I prayed to God because my parents told me to do so. I used to think of God as an old man with a beard sitting among the clouds. He turned out to become my best friend and is closer to me than my own breath. This lover of non-vegetarian foods is now a pure vegetarian and tries to inspire others to become vegetarian. I was a very shy boy, and now I can talk to strangers. What I was and what I thought I would do is so different than what the Lord did to me. — Satish Daryanani
