Spirituality is a way of life where one loses interests in wordly affairs and move towards eternal goals.
Very few people in the world would get the boon of spiritual awakening.
And they tend to have a different view of the world and life compared to all others around.

The desire for spiritual growth does not come from external lectures or reading but from within.
For them wisdom bosoms within their heart making them feel better and happier with what they are and how they are.
