The brilliance of a raging fire dragon in the city of sparkling gems – such is the nature of Pitta. Pitta is influenced by the fire element, which is the dynamic dream force of the Universe. Pitta permeates the mental body. They are blessed with a great intelligence. And they also have the greatest capacity for a sattvic mind – a mind that is free from fetters of living, a mind that is in harmony with the universe, a mind that achieves balance. When Pitta knocks down the obstacle of its own self-centered ego, Pitta will begin to discover the real pursuit.

For the last 15 years I used my knowledge to combine spiritual ways in my busy corporate lifestyle. After 15 stressfull but successful years in journalism I was ready to achieve a spiritual balance and bring more quality in my Life. Life & Love brought me to America.
