Let’s pretend that we’re thoroughly unfamiliar with contemporary spiritual vocabularies. How would you describe your teaching to us? 
My teachings are based on the teachings of my Teachers and on my experiences on practicing them. It is based on the cultivation of the heart center which is the seat of peace and on the daily gradual development of the crown center which is the seat universal love and peace. 

Was there a turning point in your life when you felt you connected to your inner peace?
In one of my first few attempts to practice Meditation on Twin Hearts which is also known as Meditation for Peace and Illumination I remember coming out of the practice and wanting to shake hands with every person I met, wanting to embrace each one of them. My suspicious thoughts towards others and fear temporarily vanished. I experienced love, friendliness and peace towards every person, every animal and plant or tree I saw. 

What does inner peace mean to you?
Inner peace is a manifestation that we are living closely to the intention which is deeply buried in our heart. This life intent is gradually uncovered through the daily practice of kindness, compassion, mercy, helpfulness and generosity. 

How can we recognize being connected to our inner peace?
A sense of well-being, a brotherliness to all, joy, goodwill to others, and the inner strength to be helpful to others are signs of a peaceful person. 

Do you think inner peace influences outer peace? If yes, in what way? If no, why not?  
My teacher used to say that thoughts and emotions are like seeds. Our speech and actions are the fruits. Repeated thoughts and emotions will eventually manifest as certain kind of speech and action. What we plant in the inner world is what we will harvest in the physical world. Therefore, we have to be cautious with what we plant in our minds and emotions. 

What would you advice people as a practical tool to (re)connect to their inner? What is your tip to find inner peace? 
One must develop helpfulness and generosity to others, creating opportunities to help instead of waiting, offering help to those who we perceive need help. Daily practice develops goodwill to others, right human relations and purposeful effective living which are foundations for authentic peace.
