"This is your name: Swami Hans Ananto. Hans means God's gracious gift, Ananto means infinite. The full name will mean God's infinite gracious gift.
Life has no beginning and no end. It is eternity, and that is God's gift. God has given himself in the gift, because life is God.
All that is needed is a certain awakening in your heart so you can see it, feel it, taste it, touch it. The gift has been waiting and waiting for you for thousands of years, but you have been asleep, as everybody has been."
