The serenity which is a source of strength in human life is a result of human mental and spiritual exercises. It involves the person ability to discern within the inner voice and to understand the connection between action and reaction in his life.

Serenity gives special power that invites other people to come and feel the calmness, peacefulness, and safety around him.
