When people properly glorify the Supreme Personality of Godhead or simply hear about His power, the Lord personally enters their hearts and cleanses away every trace of misfortune, just as ...

Sarvollāsatantram alone provides five stories or call them 'Uttpati Prakaran' (the discription of the case called creation) of which 4 are abstract. The last one being the most abstract. The last one is the one I would be writting about, it's a entire small chapter- the 5th Ullhasa. From the Nivaran Tantram as stated in the Sarvollāsatantram fifth Ullhasa of ...
