Our personality defects make us stressed;we can overcome stress using the personality defect removal process

‘‘The quest for sustained happiness and peace cannot be purchased as it is earned through lifelong dedicated efforts for self-improvement through regular Personality Defect Removal (PDR), sattvik lifestyle and spiritual practice under the guidance of an evolved spiritual guide. However, if one sincerely practices spirituality as per universal principles then it will only be a matter of time before one is able to transcend the mind and obtain the experience of the Soul or the God Principle within each of us. This is the experience of Bliss, a superlative form of happiness, which is not dependent on anything.’’
