Salutations at the Lotus Feet of Satgurudev
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This is the second issue of our divine magazine. You might have many other things to read but never will you be able to read about the cause of life and experience of Heaven as you can here. Our Master has given us the key to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, to experience it and to fill our restless heads with tranquillity, wisdom, love and power. Whatever you are reading now is the practical experience of a little man whose locked head has been unlocked by his Master, the Master whose picture is on the front cover. He alone is able to unlock everyone's head. Inside us the peace of love and light is hidden. Our Master removes from ourselves all those barriers which prevent us from becoming human. Jesus says "Come from the outer to the inner self". Of course we are trying to return to the inner self, but how can we? Christ answered "Come to me". But where is Christ now? Who is now able to say "Come to me"? Yes, I found Him. My Master told me what I wanted to know. He gave me the exact thing that I needed. We all need the same thing. As we breathe the same air and drink the same water, so we can be satisfied with the same God Who has created the entire universe and Who is inside everyone.
Know Him, because He is all knowledge. Be with Him because He alone is your own. See Him because He alone is beautiful. Hear Him because He is the melody of life. Sway with Him because He is the universal swing of life. Drink the water of life because He is giving it to you continuously.
This magazine is the direct informative publication of our mission. It tells all about our present and future. Along with this information you will have the wonderful, divine discourses of our Master to read in each and every edition. Though all editions are valuable, this is the most important one because it contains the major discourses which our Master delivered during His first visit to Europe.
So far, we have filled our minds with rubbish by reading unnecessary articles and useless advertisements. But this publication will make us healthy again. Slowly, you will be able to replace all the plastic in your mind with life tissue. Because this magazine contains only the information of Truth it will not carry any advertisements. Other magazines carry advertisements so they are cheap. Never mind, build your life on the immortal base and decorate it with living flowers.
We love you. Jai satchitanand.
DIVINE LIGHT DAWNING
"England was in winter till you came
But now we drink the spring of Holy Name"
In this issue of the magazine we have brought together some of the most important satsangs given by Shri Guru Maharaj Ji during His first visit to England, in June and July of this year. By reading them you will gain some impression of the tireless energy and boundless confidence with which He is infecting the western world during His current travels. Day after day, night after night, Guru Maharaj Ji travelled up and down the country, going wherever the love of His premies drew Him to give programmes and discourse, in wooden church halls, private houses, college assembly rooms, cinema foyers, and in the open air. And always His message is the same, delivered with the same urgency and power. "Come to me for I have the Truth and can reveal it to you." For, as He says many times, He has not come to enjoy the sights and pleasures of the world. He has come for one purpose only, to bring peace and truth to the world in one generation. And the need is urgent. If a house is on fire, the one who really loves the sleeping inhabitants is not he who smiles into their dreams and thinks, "how peaceful their sleep, I shall not disturb it". It is he who wakes up the people with a shout and a shake.
So Maharaj Ji does not use soft and gentle persuasion. He lays the case clearly before you. He explains why, in absence of Knowledge of that power which is keeping you alive, your life is without purpose, without foundation, without any source of real and eternal contentment, and He explains how it is possible to know that Power, to have direct experience of that source of life which is called by many names – God, cosmic consciousness, the Supreme Power, the fundamental reality, but which is one same and eternal pulsation of energy within each of us, glowing with an inner light, flowing with heavehly nectar and vibrating with that unpronounceable sound, that unspeakable Word called in all scriptures the Divine and True Name or the ineffable Holy Word of God.
By perceiving the absolute reality that pervades and supports the material creation the heart is filled with happiness, and the mind with peace, for true holy communion, entry into that inner Kingdom is achieved and the source of eternal life revealed.
It is a glorious age in which the vehicle of Truth, the Satguru, has passed once again to the western world. By knowing and meditating on this most sovereign secret, imparted by Him, a real and lasting peace is achieved, all doubts and questions are removed from the mind, and the mysteries of all the scriptures are revealed. For within us all, closer to us than our own nose, is a realm of such richness, joy and wisdom, that entry into it for just a short time every day will very quickly give us a real understanding of life and its nature. And from such deep and inner understanding comes realization, and from realization comes peace, contentment and harmony.
Recently, interest in the real nature of life has been increasing in the western world. More and more people are using various techniques of meditation and yoga to try and enter within themselves, but nothing is working. From specially designed exercises, a very healthy body can be developed, from eatinga special diet one's system can be purified, and from chanting some mantra the mind can be captured for a while in repetitive rhythm and some peace. achieved. But none of these practices will put you in touch with that eternal energy flow within you which was before your birth and will continue to be after your death. Brothers and sisters, it is there, and it can be experienced. It can be seen as clear, shining light of exquisite and unsurpassable beauty, it can be tasted as a river of nectar flowing within your body, it can be heard as a divine music, and can be touched as the ineffable and omnipresent Word, the most holy and profound seat of the Lord Himself, the Supreme Creator. If you are searching for the Truth of life, then come to the Lotus Feet of Guru Maharaj Ji. Make your heart humble, make your desire sincere, and you shall receive this gift of gifts.
From now on we shall be publishing this magazine every month. It will always contain Divine Satsang and will be on sale at all ashrams, offices and meetings. Alternatively, for an annual subscription of £4.00 it will be mailed to you direct. Please send a cheque payable to Divine Light Mission to the editorial office in the London ashram, if you wish to receive it regularly.
Dear Brothers and Sisters please remember that the Divine jumbo jet is taking off from London Heathrow airport at 6.30 p.m. on Wednesday 3rd November. If you are one of the Divine travellers, please make sure you are there in the departure lounge two or three hours before this time. If you are not a Divine traveller, then come along also to say goodbye to our Lord and His most fortunate premies. We must give them an unforgettable and flower–filled farewell!
GENERATOR OPERATOR DIRECTOR
19 June 1971
On the afternoon of Saturday 19th June the first public programme of Shri Guru Maharaj Ji in the West was held. A large hall in the centre of London had been hired and bedecked with flowers for the occasion.
Just now Mahatma Ji told you that although Sir Isaac Newton discovered the law of gravitation he did not invent that law. He discovered it only, and discovery means that a thing existing from the first is brought into the awareness of people. In the same. way, Knowledge is everywhere, God is everywhere, you only have to discover it. I won't invent a god for you and then show you this god, I will only show you how to discover what is everywhere. You know that God is in this bowl. If we look, we can see through it, but we won't see God. Does that prove that God is not there? Look through this bowl or any clean glass and you won't be able to see God. Does that mean that God is not in it? No. God is in it, but in the form of power and not in the form of body. This power exists throughout every millimetre of the world, in the earth, sun, moon, sky and water, and our aim in this life is to realize Him, to realize that power, to realize this grace God has given us.
G O D: that means generator, operator and director. He generated us by His grace. His first grace is done; He has generated us. He is operating and directing us, but there is one thing He has not done, and which He should have done, and that is why we need a perfect Master, He has directed us to go to a path but He has not shown us where this path is. He has just told us to follow a path. Now, I know that where I am living is on a road, by the side of a road, but which road? If you ask me where is your house, where are you staying, I will say I am staying beside a road, in a house which is beside a road. My answer will be true but will you be satisfied by it? No. You will want the full address, 5 Lincoln Street and so on and so on. In the same way, God has told us to go along a path, but which path? There are many paths in this world.
You know that God is not a man–made thing; only physical and materialistic things are man–made. The property of God deals with the metaphysical, that is apart from any of these things. And what is metaphysics? It is the purest of all things and it is this we have to realize. Mind, can only realize God when it is controlled. When it is controlled, then we have realized God. Nothing else. Just as when we switch the switch on to light the bulb, we have not touched the bulb or the electricity but have only touched the switch, and by that action the bulb is lighted. In the same way, we have to do nothing but stop our mind going in different directions, and we will see God.
In this world we see that there is darkness everywhere. There is light also in this hall but besides light there is darkness too; if I become an ant and go beneath this pillow I will find that there is darkness. Why should there be? The sun is shining and the lights are on so why is there darkness? Because the rays of those lights do not reach that place. In the same way God is there, His love is shining. But the rays are not reaching your internal hearts. And that is why you are not in perfect peace. Everyone wants perfect peace but it is given only to those people who are capable of receiving it; and the capable ones are those who really want to realize it; and only those people want to realize it, who. have got love for it, who really want it and who have a real need for it. Only a thirsty man requires water, and a man who is not feeling thirsty does not require it. That is why it is said in the Indian Shastras that only the people who seek are given. The door is only ppened to those who knock.
Today some people say Ram, Ram, Ram, but I have a question for those people. When Rama was alive, what name did He take, what was His personal name? Today you say Ram, Ram, Ram, and think you will escape this world of materialistic forms. But when Rama came in His time, did He call himself Ram, Ram, Ram? And when Krishna came, did He call himself Krishna, Krishna, Krishna? No. Their real name was the one indicated in the Bible, "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". Today we read this but we don't understand it. What was that Word that is in the beginning? What was the Word that was in the beginning and which is God, and which cannot be created? Some people ask me this question, "what is Word, has
it been created by somebody?" No. It is like energy, which is never created and never destroyed. This is the Holy Word and Holy Word is within us, but have you ever realized it? And if God is within you, why do you do wrong actions? Is God encouraging you to do these things? No. The fact is that you don't do what God wants you to do, you do what your mind says, because you are slaves of mind and not of God. If we want to be slaves of God we have to surrender ourselves, surrender our mind to God, and that is the only thing that we can surrender to God. But how is it possible? It is not possible by merely repeating a sentence. It cannot be through personal experience in practical life and practical affairs.
Charnanand Ji gave you the example that by saying "water, water, water," we cannot quench our thirst. For quenching our thirst we need a practical glass of water with H2O in it and then when we will drink it we can satisfy our thirst. And for the practical Knowledge of God we need a Satguru or we cannot realize it. Likewise, the alphabet is written in schoolbooks. Everything that a teacher teaches in a school comes from books. You all know this. You have all studied in schools. You have all been students. The master would tell you to open your books on such and such a page and read a sentence. He teaches you from your books. But does this mean that you give your boys these books for them to read so that they will become learned men, without sending them to school or paying fees? Of course not. Because they do not know the pronunciation, they do not know what is this thing and what is that thing. Books are not enough. They need a teacher who can teach them.
In the same way, a man is born to realize that Holy Name, but he will have to have a teacher in order to do it. And again, can you see your own face? It is with you, it is not kept in your pocket. Your nose, your mouth, can you see them? No. Only if there is a mirror can you see them. God is within you but until you have the mirror of practical Knowledge you cannot see Him, you won't be able to see Him. So who will give the mirror, who will give the practical Knowledge mirror? If somebody can give us God or the practical Knowledge, that means he is our guru.
Gu means darkness and ru means light. Somebody who brings us from the darkness of this world into the light of the spirit is our Guru. If we obey him we will find it, we will find that real Knowledge. Real Knowledge is not in any outside thing, it lies within you. Even though we say that God is in ourselves, we seek Him outside. Why? Can you find Him there? Suppose you have a watch on your wrist and you look somewhere .else for it. Can you find it? You can only find it when you look at your wrist. Oh, here it is, you will say. The same way, when God is within, how can you find Him outside? He is within you. All you must do is to get hold of your mind's ideas which are flowing outwards, control. them, and put them inside. That is all.
When a car starts, what happens? The cells generate, the distributor passes the current to the plugs, firing takes place, the petrol comes, the carburettor sends the petrol on and combustion takes place. Pistons begin pumping and the car starts. It's the same thing when we receive satsang. What happens? Automatically we are enlightened. Then we receive the Knowledge. The
Satguru is the carburettor and He provides the petrol of Knowledge so that combustion can take place. This body is the piston; it starts to work and we go on. If we haven't got the carburettors in our cars, even if we have got everything else, how can we start the car? Only by pushing, and how many miles will you push the car?
So remember one thing, that money can be gained by physical means but the true Knowledge cannot, and until you know the true Knowledge you are imperfect. You are perfect but you are imperfect because you have got no aim, because you have not attained the perfect thing. Have you attained the perfect thing, which is the Knowledge? No. Have you seen God? You say God is your Father, yet if I ask you a simple question, have you seen your Father, you will say "I have not," and this is a shameful thing for any man to say. That our Father is alive and we haven't seen him is a matter of shame for us. So we have to realize that thing which is beyond materialism, and which has no concern with any materialistic thing in this world. All these things will finish one day, but one thing will not finish, and that is the holy and true Knowledge.
I once saw an old man who was buying a walking–stick but as he tested it, it broke. So I said, "If you want, I can give you such a stick that will never break," and he said that would be priceless. I said, ."No, it is free," and then I bestowed on him the Knowledge and then he realized. Yes, the stick of our souls is Knowledge and if we have such sticks that break, our souls will also collapse, our ideas will also collapse, and we ourselves will also collapse.
Everybody is impure, but we must become pure. When will we be pure? When we go to Satguru, when we go to the true giver of Knowledge, the true Bestower of Knowledge, He will make us pure. If we are able to make ourselves pure, then there is no need of Satguru. What was the need that made Jesus come in His time? To bestow the Knowledge, and the Knowledge He bestowed in His time is the same Knowledge. I will ask you a question, as many of you have read the Bible. Jesus said, – I am not using the actual words from the Bible–"whoever are thirsty come to me and I will give them water from within themselves". You have read the Bible? Tell me what is the meaning of this? I will give you water from within yourselves. Brahmanandji in the Indian language, and almost every saint, has said this same thing. So what is this pure water, where does it lie, where is it? Reading the Bible won't help you to find it.
Suppose I am a soldier and I know it is my duty to obey my general's order, but I do not obey him. Will I be of any use to him? I have promised to obey my general, I have taken an oath that I will obey my general, and completed every formality that I have to complete. I have completed my training for the military and I have promised that I will always obey my general. Now what use is all this training if I never obey my general? So when we read the Bible we should realize what it indicates, what is its meaning, why Jesus said and why John wrote all those things. Why is the Bible there? Why did all those saints combine those sentences and make scriptures and a beautiful book for you? Why did they compose the Gita, the Ramayana and all those scriptures and the Indian Shastras? What was the effect they wanted to obtain? They just wanted you to realize something. They refer to a word and they define it as it was in the beginning and they describe its qualities. They want you to know that Name, but do you know it? Is reading the Bible of any use to you when you have not realized the Name? Suppose I say "Ki Ao" in Hindi. "Ao" means come, but those people who do not understand Hindi do not know what it means. So, is saying "Ao Ao Ao" of any use to you? If want to call you and I say "Ao Ao Ao" is it any use to you? No. When I tell you that "Ao" means come, then you can come to me. They have referred to a word and this Word was in the beginning. And they say, "I will give you water from within yourselves". When they say that they mean there was something there. There is something there. It is the same with written histories or memorials. The people who wrote them or erected them, wanted you to realize something, they wanted you to remember those things, to feel their ideas for yourselves. It's the same thing when they tell you to know the Word. They want you to know that Word which they had realized and which Jesus gave. Just because Jesus is not here, it does not mean knowing that Word is not possible. It is possible. Suppose I want to buy a watch, say a Fabaluba watch. If I cannot get it in shop A I will try in shop B, then C, D, E, F, and so on and I will get it. When I search for it I will get it. The people of America discovered certain techniques and materials and they were able to send the Apollo to the moon. Could they have done it previously? No. But when they had made their discoveries. when they tried, then they were able to send the Apollo. And when you are trying with your internal heart, you will get the Knowledge. It was very difficult to send the Apollo to the moon, sending something material so many thousands of miles away, but when they tried it they succeeded. The computer machines did not exist at first but when they tried, they were able to invent them, So if everything is possible in this world by trying, then we should only try and we will get the Know–
We cannot find the internal peace by searching in the materialistic world. Can we drive a car sitting in the back? No. If we want to drive the car we will have to sit in the driver's seat and then we can drive the car. If we try to drive the car by only holding the door, the car won't work. We have to have the steering wheel in our hands to steer the car here and there. So if you want to get the Knowledge you have to know which means to use. You have to apply spiritual means for it, not materialistic. For making something salty you won't put sugar in it. You will use salt. Suppose you want to have your tea sweeter, you won't put chillies in it. You will put sugar in it and then it will be sweet. In the same way, if you want to realize the Knowledge you will have to apply spiritual means because Knowledge is a spiritual thing. Then you will be able to know the real Name, and when you know the real Name you will know it.
I cannot define it in words. If I slap you can you give me the experience in words? No, you can only tell me that I hurt you. Now, I know you were hurt, but what was the feeling of being hurt? Can you give rte that feeling? Can you express pain in words? No, because feelings are not contained in any vocabulary. When the Word was existing before the world began, what form was it in? If the Word was God why do you say God? You can say "Word, I want the Knowledge". Why do you say God, when it is clearly said "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God"? Don't say God. if the Word was God then don't say God, use Word instead and say "Oh Word, I want the Knowledge". But do you know your Word? No. That Word cannot be said by alphabetical means. So the word only defines it.
Suppose this man's name is Ashok and I do not know his name. I will say that he is a man, so man is an adjective for him. The noun is something else and that is Ashok. Suppose I am indicating him by a pronoun, 'he'. Is his name 'he'? Can I say "Mr He, come here"? People call you 'he' don't they? "Oh, he is sitting here", they say but do people say "Mr He come here", "Mr You come here"? No. It is only an indication for him because I do not know his name. Because this Holy Name cannot be put in alphabetical series they have used the 'Word', so we have to realise that Knowledge, that Holy Word which is within ourselves, and make our lives perfect. Suppose we are standing in the middle of a lighthouse. The waves are coming and we want to count them. Can we do it? No. Because there are several of them, and we do not know in which direction to face. The air likewise has got no sense of direction. At one moment it will blow here, at the next, there. In the same way, we have got no sense of direction to tell us where to go, to whom we should pray, or who is our God. So many questions to ask and no answer for them, so we have to realize the true God and follow Him, follow His path. We have to surrender ourselves to God so that He may guide us to the right path. Because He Himself is right, true and perfect. These spiritual discourses which I give you are not the Knowledge. I am only telling you about it. I am not giving you the Knowledge. That Knowledge, that Holy Word, cannot be put into an alphabetical sequence, so how can I tell you from this state? And, in any event, there may be several of you who are not thirsty for it. First you will have to be thirsty; be thirsty, come to me, and then I will give you the Knowledge. Be assured that if you come to me I will give you the Knowledge, the same true Knowledge.
You will never be able to pay the fees for this Knowledge. It is so valuable that if the wealth of this universe is doubled 4,000 times it still won't be enough. So it is valuable Knowledge. Your pence, pounds, shillings and dollars won't be able to make up the price; neither will rupees or paisas. It has not got fees, it is free for you. For every man who comes with real thirst it is free. The river flows but only those men who are 'thirsty know the importance of water. Rain is only important for those people who are farmers. But the Knowledge is important for everyone, and I have come to London to bestow this Knowledge. I have suffered to come from thousands and thousands of miles away to give you the true internal Knowledge and if you want it I can give it to you. It is within yourselves; I have only to show you the mirror and you will be able to see it. So if you want that true Knowledge you can get it, it is very easy to obtain, but you must try, you must come to me first. It is not such a thing that you press the button and automatically the receipt and the change come from the machine, it is not like that. And it is not such a thing that you press the button and the door opens by itself, it is not like that either. You will have to take pains and then you will get gains. Only the person who takes pains gains something. Now, what are the pains? They are that you must come to me, ask me for the Knowledge, and then I will give you the Knowledge. This Knowledge is not a football, or a small ball that I can give you from my pocket. It is not a flower that I can give you and say "Here is the Knowledge". It is not a mantra. It is not a small garland that can go around your fingers. It is something that I cannot tell you with my tongue, because
it cannot be expressed in an alphabetical sequence.
So I will finish my discourse. People are feeling sleepy and I am also upset because this is not a good time for a spiritual discourse. This is the time when people rest in India. I am going to America and all those places just to bestow this Knowledge. I did not intend to come here and roam about in London. If I wanted to roam about I could roam about in India. There are many places in India where I can roam about. If I roam about here, people will see me, but in India they have places where no people can see me and I will roam about there. There are many jungles there, many lonely roads there. I have not come to roam about, I have not come to see London. Houses here are not good. They are beautiful from inside, but the outside is better in India. It is the opposite there. There is no inlook beauty in India but there is outlook beauty there; the outlook here is not beautiful but the inlook is. My purpose is not to come here and see London. Roads and cars are there in India; this rush of traffic is there in India also. No. I have only come to bestow on you this Knowledge, and that is my only purpose. When Jesus came, He did not come to roam about; He came to bestow the Knowledge and every second of His was spent bestowing the Knowledge. But He bestowed it on those who came to Him and not on those who were sitting in their houses with Dunlop pillows beneath their heads. So if you will take pains you will get something back. We have got an ashram here, you can come there and take the Knowledge and I will be very glad to give you the Knowledge if you come and seek me.
But first empty your tanks. Because before there was kerosene oil in your tanks and you were going very, very slowly, but now high–speed petrol is going to be put in and if it mixes with the kerosene oil it will have a bad effect on the car. If you want to gain the full effect of fast driving with high–speed petrol, first empty your tank. Will you empty your tank? Come to me. I will wash it with spiritual discourses, then I will give you the Knowledge that is the high–speed petrol, and you'll go forward at thousands of miles per hour. The speedometer of cars and the speed of cars are limited to 120 miles per hour but the speed given by my high–speed petrol is not limited, and the car can go many thousands and thousands of miles per hour. So come to me. I have told you that I do not make the Knowledge and then give it to you. It is within you yourselves. I will only help you discover it. Thank you very much.
MIDSUMMER NIGHT AT GLASTONBURY
On the day of the summer solstice, Guru Maharaj Ji was due to deliver His discourse at the Glastonbury pop festival. Premies of the Lord were there for two days beforehand, giving satsang and preparing people for the visit of the Master.
I have come to tell you of that yoga which is not yoga, that yoga that generated your mind. In that yoga you must give up your mind and you will obtain the place that you are seeking. There is a Word. There is a Knowledge. There is a thing. I have got that Word. I have got that Knowledge. I have got that thing, and I tell you that I can help all mankind – everyone of you – by giving out that Knowledge. Every one of you.
And if somebody comes to me I might refuse him. Only if he has pure devotion for me, pure love for me and for the true Knowledge. If one comes with true devotion and true love and asks for true Knowledge of the true self, which you are seeking through relative forms, I can give it to you. Spiritually. The Knowledge is within you, God is within you. And I can show you God if you want to see Him. I can show you your Father, if you want to see Him and I can challenge, if you please, millions of people that I can show them that God which they are seeking in forms. If someone comes to me with pure devotion I can show them that thing but they must come with pure devotion. I have that Knowledge and I can give you that Knowledge. That is the only service I can do. My age is so little, my body is so small, I can't serve you as a military officer. I can't serve you as a police constable. The only service I can do is to help you by giving that Perfect Knowledge which you are now seeking in materialism. All materialistic things are perishable. You too will perish one day. So how are you going to find God? You should know such a thing that will never perish and that is the Holy Word, the Holy Knowledge of God, and that is inside you. You only need to discover it. Isaac Newton only discovered the Law of Gravity, he didn't invent it, did he? In the same way the Knowledge is within you. I can reveal it. I cannot give it to you from somewhere else. I will tell you who you are and what is the purpose of your coming into this world. If somebody comes to me I am sure I can give him the Knowledge and he will be satisfied.
There are many devotees who are saying I preach a religion. No. Not that. I am not a religious man. I am only saying that I am a spiritual man. I never believe in religions because I believe religions divide men and divide men's ideas into separate sects. But if the True God is equal for everyone like we say Bhagwan in Hindi, God in English, Buddha in Urdu, God is the same thing and Knowledge of Him is always the same. If the formula H2O is the formula for water everywhere it means that the flavour and taste of water is the same. So if God is equal, if God is one, if God is the same then the Knowledge of Him must also be equal. And so it cannot be attained by going into different sects and religions. It is within you. You can commit your body to different sects and religions but Knowledge is not there.
To go anywhere you need some money, some pounds. To go to the picture hall you need some money for the tickets. The same anywhere. You need pounds. Now my pounds are love and devotion pounds that can only be obtained by Updesh. I have a bank and in it is the money of love and devotion. I don't like materialistic money–pounds, shillings, pence and dollars–because they are perishable. The only thing that is imperishable you already have within yourself and that is love and devotion for Knowledge. Give it to me. It's alright. I am very sure that I can give you ,what you are really seeking and what you are becoming tired of seeking in the materialistic forms of the changeable world. You can't find spiritual Knowledge in material things. Materialistic things can be attained by materialistic forms and spiritual things by spiritual forms only. So please want the Holy Knowledge. Remove all the sects, be pure and be above all sects. Fly over them, just as a plane breaks through the clouds and flies above them. If you want to reach Holy Master, Holy God, you have to escape from all sects and religions and come to me. I can show you the right path for you to follow, I will give you that Knowledge. Come to me with devotion and love.
Now the Chairman has told me to give this discourse for only a short time, then I have to go back because tomorrow I have to leave for Germany and I will be preaching there too and giving this same discourse. "Know your Master, know your Holy God." G for Generator. O for Operator. D for Director. Generator, Operator, Director.
Have you given Him something? No. What can we give Him? Only pure devotion and pure love. Everybody has it – a body, an old man, a young man. Everybody has it.
I won't keep you longer. Thank you very much.
BALYOGESHWAR SRI SANT JI MAHARAJ
HAS BEEN BORN SOLELY TO SHOW US THAT LIGHT WHICH WILL BRING GOD INTO OUR HEARTS AND THUS INTO THE WORLD
Porchester Hall 30 June 1971
Dear Premies. It is said that by the, grace of a holy man or a holy master a lame person can conquer a high mountain. Just imagine, by the grace of such a holy person, such a holy lord, a lame man can cross a high mountain. The man who has got no tongue can speak. The man who has got no eyes, who is blind, can see light, and a man who hasn't got ears can listen to immortal music. Now we say we read the scriptures but when we read them, they remain in the mind and do not flow out. They do not give you the actual Knowledge which you are seeking from those books. When a cooking book says first take the pot, put it on the stove, put some ghee or butter in it, it does not mean that the stove has raised itself before you, that the pot has been placed automatically on the stove, and the butter put into that pot. The book only indicates that you should do these things. Next it says you can put in the things that you want to cook, and put some salt and pepper in with them. Then after cooking you can test the food to see if it is cooked or not and when it is cooked you can put it on your plates and eat it. Now, when the book says these things does it mean your stomach is filled, does it mean you have eaten something? Of course not.
In the same way if I point towards the sun, this is not the sun. This is only a finger which is indicating the sun but is not itself the sun. The scriptures are guide books which can only tell us that we have to go on that road, or that this path will lead us to that place, but they haven't shown us the main thing – how to get there. They have shown us that we should go along such and such a path but they are not guiding us with their hand. We have to find such a guide, such a holy guide, who can take our hands and guide us to that path. Because if we are able to walk by ourselves on that holy path then there is no need of God. Holy scriptures can only tell us to go along the holy path. But holy Satguru is required so that He can take your hand and guide you to that immortal point.
Some people express their devotion to a person called Rama. They say, oh Rama is very good. But what is Rama? Have they realized him? Today we pay our devotions to Jesus Christ but have we realised what Jesus Christ told us? Today we give our devotion to Krishna, but have we realized what Krishna told in his time? If a general tells a soldier to go and fight at the border, and the soldier says, "Oh my general, you are beautiful, you are clever, you are strong, our country needs such generals," but never obeys him, never goes to the border to fight, is he a capable soldier? If a student says, "Oh my teacher, you are very good, your methods are very good, your feelings and expressions are very good, you are a very holy teacher, your ideas are very holy", but if when the teacher tells him to do this homework he does something else is he a perfect student? No. When will he be a perfect student? Only when he does what his master says.
Now our Master told us in His time to be devoted to that immortal point. What did He mean? Suppose we are giving our devotion to this mike. If after a few days or after a few years, this mike is destroyed, our devotion to it will also disappear. If we love a girl, as soon as the girl dies our love towards her will also die. That's why the holy masters have told us to love, to concentrate, to give our devotion to that point which is imperishable. Such devotion created by the soul lasts forever, and only through this devotion can I attain the sacred truth.
People say that I am changing their religion. No. I am not changing their religion, all I am saying is that if you are eating your food, please have a glass of water. That's all. If you are eating food, please have a glass of water with it. When I tell you this I am not keeping you away from your food. You eat your food and I will say please have a glass of water. This is the thing you need, especially if you are eating food with chillies in it. Then you will seek that water, and you will be crying for that water. Tears will automatically stream from your eyes because you want water. This is the condition of the human being; he is going on eating food, but he is not drinking water. That is why Christ said "Come to me. I will give you water from within yourselves". That tub of water is within ourselves but have we realized it? No. Today, when scientists send Apollo to the moon, we praise them greatly: "Oh, see they have sent Apollo to the moon". But we do not
praise that Holy Master who has put so much memory into such a small space. Today there are pocket radios, which work while we carry them around but we do not praise Him who has put a much greater piece of machinery into such a small space. With a small radio we have one band or two bands, but see how many automatic bands the radio has which He has put in us – automatic bands so that wherever you go your radio will receive the right station.
We must have a practical realization in order to help ourselves, in the same way that our hunger can only be satisfied when we have actually filled our stomach with food. A man's hunger cannot be satisfied by filling his wife's stomach. If that were so then he could work and work and work while his wife did the eating. The same with sleeping. The wife would be able to sleep night after night while her husband worked in the office day and night. But it isn't like that. You must eat for yourself and sleep for yourself. Whatever a man does he does for himself.
When a man realizes this holy Knowledge he will become a saint. Then it will be a practical achievement. You do not become a buffalo by colouring yourself black. All other features except the colour will remain different. Likewise with the difference between ourselves and the Holy Master. Only in superficial features do we resemble Him. For that man is sacred, and has become sacred by realizing the true Knowledge. When we have realized the Knowledge then we too will be as sacred as that man. If we want to realize that God we must become a real priest, a priest who only asks God to make him perfect.
Why do we say the Knowledge is a holy secret? Only because we have not yet realized it. Something that is open is not a secret. If everyone knows that four and four is eight, and eight is four and four, it is not a secret. But the holy Knowledge is a secret thing. It is called the secret of secrets because it is the secret behind all secrets. Every secret has a secret behind it but not this. Everything that exists in the world exists because of it. This is that immortal point that we have to realize, and if you want to realize it I have got it; the same immortal point by meditating on which you will become holy.
I have found the perfect Knowledge and I have come to London to give it to you. I have come all these thousands of miles not to see London, not to see these roads and these cars, not to see the outward show of London, but to give you that Knowledge by which you will become as … there is no word. We can say as white as snow but we cannot say as sacred as …
Whenever we write anything we must start with a point. If we want to write 'dear', as soon as we put our pen on the paper a point will be made and a whole line will follow, forming the letter 'd', then 'e' will be formed, then 'a', then 'r'. Now if we realize what is the point at which that line began and what is the point at which it ended then we will have realization of that line also. What are these points that are being created? Draw a line. It has a point at the beginning and a point will be formed again, and again, and again. Points and points and points and points will be formed. Everything is existing by Word.
Look at this microphone. It is shaped like a microphone and is fulfilling its function. But if I take this outer covering from it and place it before you and you say "hello, hello",will you call it a microphone? No you won't, because it is just the outer covering without any wires or machinery, and when you say "hello, hello" no words come from it. But these people who think it is a mike are like the people who are trying to know that secret in open places and not in the secret place. They will not know that Word, that point by which the world was started and by which the world will end.
Even Aum and those holy words can be written, they can be expressed. Today people chant Rama Rama Rama, Krishna Krishna Krishna, but Krishna Himself said Avekto Ashad. Indian people and those who read Indian scriptures know this well. Avekto Ashad is the word that cannot be expressed, and they have tried to define that Holy Word. It is said in the Bible "In the beginning was the Word". Now in the beginning was there any language? No. Because languagewas invented by someone, but in the beginning the world was not even created. But the Holy Word was at that time, so in what alphabet can that Word be found? We have to know that alphabet that is beyond the spoken word. With aum the first letter is 'A', which comes from the stomach and the last is 'M' which comes from the mouth, and after 'M' pronunciation of Aum finishes. We have to know that Holy Word which is existing within us. We can say that the Word is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient but we cannot prove it because we have not seen Him. We have not seen His omnipotence, His omnipresence, His omniscience. Only when we realize it, will we be able to express it because the Holy Knowledge, the Holy Word, is going on in the same language that was before the world.
Once a film came to Dehra Dun called "The Holy Bible" or something like that. The whole school went to see it, our schoolmasters took us. In that film we saw that as man was created he was speaking like this: Agh, Agh, Agh. This sound became the letter 'A'. Then 'E' came, then 'AE' and so language was gradually invented. But as soon as that man was born, which language was he speaking? Our scriptures tell us that when a baby is in the womb of his mother he is praying to God. As soon as he comes into the world and as soon as coldness or any feeling comes over his body he starts crying. Now when he is in the womb of his mother, in which language is he praying? We have to realize that language, the language by which he was praying to his Father.
G for generator, O for operator, D for destroyer. Who will take us to that place? How will we get a passport? Anyone can obtain a passport but it is getting the endorsement from the man that is difficult.
You can use expression and ideas to tell about this Knowledge, it is like this, it is like that, but you will never realize it by yourself from such descriptions. If I say the sun is very bright, it means I have seen the brightness of the sun. But if I describe the Taj Mahal to people before they see it they cannot think of the palace itself. They can only think "a building, a beautiful building". Suppose they have seen a beautiful building which is a Roman cathedral. It looked very beautiful to them, and they will think the Taj Mahal has also got similar features, a big dome, the roof looking like this. Only when they see it will they actually know. If I say that I have got a car; it is white and its length is 171/2 feet, you will fit that car in with your personal ideas; you will think of a Mercedes or a car that you like. And when I say "God", if you haven't seen God you can only imagine, and imaginary things are imaginary things. So we would have to see God, then we will know about it, then we will be able perfectly to bring God into our minds. Otherwise we imagine. Is He an animal, is He a cat or a mouse or a rat? What is He? Is God as big as an elephant, is He as large as a whale? We must see God, then we will know.
If a blind man comes along here and he is trying to find the stairs and I say "please come to this side", will he come to this side? How can he come when he has not seen the direction of my hand? Perhaps he will try this side first, then that side, then try up; then try down. But then I want him at this side so when he turns in the right direction I will say "all right, go straight on from there, go straight on". It is the same with God.
Once there were four blind men who wanted to visit an elephant. They asked the way, they went to the elephant and then said "now we cannot see the elephant so we will feel it". So as they touched it like this, in one's hand came the foot of the elephant, in the other the tail, the third one caught his trunk and the fourth felt the stomach. When they were coming back one said "that elephant is as thin as a tail". Another one said "he is not too fat, he is a smooth and lengthy thing". The third one said "that elephant is just like the trunk of a tree", and the fourth said "no, it is like a big whale". But we know the the elephant is neither the tail nor the stomach, nor like a whale or a tree–trunk. Only that man who has seen an elephant really knows what an elephant is.
So it is when we see Krishna wearing certain clothes, or Rama wearing a crown and pitambri and carrying a bow and arrow. We think God looks like this but only the man who has actually seen God knows what His true features are. Now, how will you see God when it is written "only blind people can see me"? This does not mean that you people who have got eyes will never see
Him. When you were in the womb your materialistic eyes were closed but your third eye was open. As soon as you came into this world then your material eyes opened but the third eye closed; and when you again try to concentrate on God these eyes will be closed but the third eye will be open. Close your eyes and concentrate. Can you, concentrate on God? No. Because we need to know that immortal point on which to concentrate. Where is that pool where blind people drink? A pool of nectar is within us.
Only people who have seen that Light, tasted that nectar, concentrated on that Word and listened to those musical instruments can understand what I am saying. If we want to play a guitar we must first pluck the strings, but Brahman in his scriptures says the immortal vibration is continuous, the immortal playing carries on and on. What is that vibration in which every vibration in the world started? We must realize this vibration, and we do this by Raj Yoga. We are learning yoga. It does not mean we lever this leg over our neck and this foot round this leg and call that yoga. Our yoga means putting our ideas into shape, not our bodies.
Raj Yoga means royal yoga, the superb yoga, the supreme yoga. This converts our ideas, turning our outward–going ideas inwards. Because, as Brahman has said, everything is within us.
I am writing a summary of all the scriptures, Indian, Muslim, Christian, old and new. And when it is published in English you will see that Mohammed in His time saw that supreme Light, that Guru Nanak also, and Krishna, and Rama, and Buddha. Did Buddha say "Buddha, Buddha; Buddha", did Rama say "Rama, Rama, Rama", did Krishna say "Krishna, Krishna, Krishna"? Lord Krishna said to Arjuna before He gave him Knowledge, "Arjuna you cannot see me". But that is not true. Arjuna replied, "I am seeing you, Krishna". And Krishna said "No, you are not seeing me. You are seeing my mortal body whith will perish one day".
So when we say a certain man was called Jesus we are not referring to the name of His soul. Because the soul has no name. Jesus is the name of the body, just as Krishna is the name of a body, not of a soul. And we have to get back to the soul, back to, the supreme creator, and this can only be done through the grace of a Holy Master.
I tell you that a master who converts your religion is not the true Master because the true Master is not concerned with your religion. When people ask if I am Hindu I say no. Or Muslem? I say no. Or Christian, or Sikh, I say no. I am none of them. I am a body, which is perishable. And my soul has got no religion. We must realize our souls for ourselves. And we can realize that through the supreme technique given by the supreme guru. And it is a yoga technique, but not external yoga; it is internal. It means just changing the direction of those ideas and thoughts that are constantly flowing out from you, so that they are directed inwards, towards yourself.
While our thinking powers, our feeling powers, our desiring powers are going out into the world we
will always feel sorry. When we see something beautiful we are very sorry when we stop seeing it. But when you see God you will see Him for ever and ever and ever. If you are seeing a beautiful sunset, you are just seeing a red light coming out of the clouds. You are enjoying it, but after two, three or four hours the sun goes down and the beautiful sunset is finished. But once you have seen God, you will see Him for ever and ever and ever. And when you have that spiritual technique, you can see God face to face.
If someone wants that technique I can give it to Him. It is only for this that I have come so many miles. But how will you receive it? I will just explain this to you then I will finish off my satsang. Suppose this is a tap, and the water is from here. I have got a bucket, but if I put the bucket here, above the tap, will it fill? No. The bucket must be under the tap. If you want this Knowledge you will have to come to me, and if you have any doubts come to me and I will end them. Now if you ask why 'I don't like my wife, or how much time do I spend in the office or am I earning a profit from my business, I will not answer those questions. But if you ask why are you not seeing God or can you see God, I will answer those questions. And if you want to see God I will let you see Him. So I have come here. I will be staying here and if you wish you can come to me and I will give you the Holy Name, the Name that can save you from the river of materialism.
Does this mean I am helping you? No. If I tell you to drink water, that the formula for water is H2O and that you should put the water in a cup and lift it to your lips, I am not helping you. I will bring water in a cup, give it to you, and you drink it. Now I am helping you. Come to me, you will be given the address and the telephone number. If you cannot come then contact me by telephone. And I request you to give this golden opportunity also to your brothers and sisters. I have to go to America and if you cannot find time to contact me before I go then you can come after my return. While I am away Mahatma Ashokanand Ji will be here and you can contact him.
So if you want the Knowledge come to me and I will give you the Knowledge; but please, it is not like a chocolate or a toffee that I will give you and you will be satisfied. It is a technique that you have to follow. The lighter is there and the burner is there. Now the motor is on and the gas is coming, yes, the gas is coming. Then it is sufficient to light the burner. First I will see if the motor is on or off and, if the motor is on, if the gas is coming, if I can see, yes, the gas is coming, only then will I light the lighter.
If you are sitting here and are feeling just a little thirsty you won't mind whether you are able to get water or not, you are not terrified that you will not be able to get water. But the man living in those sandy places like Rajasthan is very terrified. If the water has finished and there is no water, he becomes very terrified. So the more thirst you have the more you will feel the value of water. If you have great spiritual thirst, then the Name and the Knowledge will have much more value for you.
So I want you to take your time. Mahatma Ashokanand Ji will tell you the telephone number and address so you can come and contact me. Tomorrow I will be busy. I won't be able to meet you then but the day after tomorrow you can come And meet me. There is a programme in Birmingham .and you can come and listen to my satsang. This is all I have to say and those people who want to contact me may come and contact me. I am very glad that in this materialistic world so many people have gathered to listen to a spiritual discourse. And I will do like a priest. I am not a priest, I do not think I am a priest, but I will request from my side to God that He may bless you all and show you a way, a small way so that you can reach me, and from me there is a path and I think I am capable to show you that path and may God bless you.
ONLY THOSE PEOPLE WHO FIND THE TRUE SATGURU ARE ABLE TO REALIZE THAT REAL SUPREME JOY THAT COMES FROM TRUE KNOWLEDGE … IT IS WITHIN YOU AND I KNOW THE TECHNIQUE BY WHICH IT CAN BE ATTAINED
The only real thing in the world is energy and it is this energy that we call God. This energy is a light within us which we have to realize, and we cannot see anything within us until there is a mirror before us. We need the internal mirror of the Satguru and through it we will see that light which you are looking for in materialism. The mirror .is given by Satguru. I should not actually use the word 'given' because it is shown by Satguru. Only Satguru can open that box, has the key to that mirror box which is within you. When that box is open and the glass is taken out, then we will see that light and hear that primordial vibration, feeling which we can have inner satisfaction in our souls.
Money is an external thing and with it we can achieve external things. But if we want to achieve anything internal we must use an internal method. Spiritual Knowledge is an internal thing and an internal method is needed to realize it. It is our internal love and it is of the soul and not the body. It lies deep within us and we have to seek. Guru Maharaj Ji because He can give it to us.
If I want to learn the ABC I must do it with my mind and not with my body or any of my limbs. But the mind cannot do it at once. It cannot read the ABC once and know it. It needs practice and after several readings then I will have learnt it. It is the same with the search for Knowledge; real Knowledge does not come at once, only after a search. There are many gurus in this world; it is for us to find from them the one true Master and then He will give us the eternal Knowledge for which everyone is looking.
The Knowledge is not outside, it is within us. Newton discovered, but did not invent, the law of gravitation. in the same way, the Satguru shows us that Light which is existing within us; He does not bring it from outside. Now I have this internal Word, this internal Knowledge, this inner consciousness of mind, and if somebody wants it from me I can give it to them. But only if. Everything we see with these eyes will be destroyed and if we concentrate on any materialistic thing our concentration also will be destroyed. Suppose we concentrate on this pot; as soon as this pot is destroyed our concentration also will be destroyed. Our concentration should be directed at such a point that is indestructible and this point is the Knowledge. When we achieve that Knowledge, when it is re vealed to us by Satguru, we have inner concentration of mind. I can give it to you because I have it, this inner concentration for which you are searching. And not just you. Everyone. Everyone in the world is searching but they are searching in material things.and inner peace will never be gained in this way.
It is within you and I know the technique by which it can be attained. If someone wants it they may come to me. It is the supreme technique because it brings supreme joy, and supreme joy is a matter of experience. It cannot be expressed or transmitted through words. If we get caned by the master at school we will feel hurt but we cannot express this momentary experience of pain in words. And the same when a feeling of extreme joy comes to us. Real joy. We say, "Oh I am so glad," but we do not transmit that extreme joy; the words are a small indication that we are in such a state of joy. But what joy this is, what is its quality and quantity, is not indicated. It cannot be put into words. It is a matter of experience, it is a personal thing; one must experience and realize it for oneself. And only those people who really find the true Satguru are able to realize that real supreme joy that comes from true Knowledge. I cannot tell you the experience I have had; you must experience for yourself and then you will understand. This is the thing. I have got true Knowledge and I have got inner consciousness; I can reveal it.
I won't take too much of your time because you have been sitting here for a long time. Only remember that I have that inner truth and I can reveal it to you. If you want, you can come to Porchester Hail tomorrow. There will be satsang there and the time of the meeting will be given to you. You can come there, listen to my satsang, and then you can come to me, discuss things with me and have your inner consciousness revealed to you. But first you must come to me. Knowledge is not a push–button thing like a cash register, where you push a button, and the bill, the amount you have to pay, automatically comes out. It's not like that. You must first make an effort and take some pains; only by searching will you find the truth and the guru who can reveal it to you. So come to London tomorrow and hear my satsang in Porchester Hall, and any questions or doubts that are in your mind you can discuss them with me.
Thank you very much.
GURU PUJA FESTIVAL
9 July 1971
I SUBMIT MY HEART AT THE LOTUS FEET OF SATGURUDE
I AM UNDER THE COMPLETE SUPREME SHELTER OF SRI GURU MAHARAJ JI
I BOW MY HEAD AGAIN AND AGAIN BEFORE HIS LOTUS FEET
On the 8th and 9th July, Guru Puja celebrations were held in England for the first time ever in the presence of a living Satguru. This was a most wonderful event for the premies in this country, who knew how strong would be the love of the Indian premies at this time, and what danger there would be of us losing our Lord on the first aeroplane to Bihar. But the time had come and He was still with us. Great bliss and joy! On the 8th, a programme was held at the Hindi Centre in Leicester – an occasion for the manifestation of great love and a beautiful holy satsang in His native tongue. Arti was sung at the end, then the Lord drove away, His car bedecked with coloured cloth and flowers. On the 9th July it was the turn of the British devotees to arrange a Guru Puja celebra–tion for Maharaj Ji. He had only given His permission at the last minute because He did not feel that the English premies knew enough about devotion to be able to arrange such a festival. But they were persistent and our Lord relented. Three or four hundred attended this function with flowers and gifts for Him. There was much singing and dancing. There was great great happiness. Musical instruments were played. The premies who had just finished a hard day in the offices and factories of London were filled with a divine love which one would have thought impossible to find in this materialistic country. This was really a most sublime ecstacy, and greatly privileged were those who witnessed it.
It is said that the one who becomes a devotee or one who really seeks after truth is only he who has battered his head on the four corners of the earth and is tired of the world. Only he has got love enough to receive this knowledge, only he is tired of affections, attachments and the duties of this world, he is the one who tries to find this Knowledge. Well, for this man any festival is a common day; the biggest festival in the world is just another day for that devotee. But there are some special occasions just for devotees and the most valuable of these is Guru Puja. Actually guru means … you know what guru means … and puja means prayer. Prayer is not a good definition because we won't get an answer from prayer, but puja is done by the heart and not spoken by the mouth. And inspiration is such a thing that it comes only from the heart.
When a man slowly bows his head at the lotus feet of Satgurudev it is only a sign that a man has surrendered himself. As a word is only an indication for what that word means, so our bowing to Guru Maharaj Ji is only a sign that we are surrendering ourselves. Devotees have seen that this world is a sea with many little boats sailing upon it, a vast sea; and every time a high wave comes it takes the boat up and then down. One day money comes and we are happy and the next day it goes and we are sad. The devotee has actually seen this process taking place and he wants to be away from it. This is the way we can keep away from this process. With this Knowledge we can be away from worldly things and live in the world like a lotus. The lotus grows in muddy waters but its colour is never muddy – it is as clear as a rose. In the same way we are in the muddy waters of the world but we will not indulge ourselves in materialism. Because we are meditating our hearts will go miles and miles away from materialistic things. We will not love them. We will only love one thing – Satgurudev, God, Meditation, the True Way.
Actually Guru Puja was also held on the 8th in Leicester, and in Patna in India now thousands and thousands of premies are receiving the darshan of Mataji; the whole Delhi staff has gone there on behalf of me, and a photo is there representing my body. But not myself. This year you have broken the sequence for the first time in thousands and thousands of years. Whenever the Holy Master., has come into the world Guru Puja has been held in India but this year the sequence is broken, Guru Puja is happening in London and you are very lucky to have the opportunity, but because you've been away from Guru Puja for about two thousand years you don't realize this. A little boy can't speak English, he must learn slowly how to make a sentence, and so you will learn slowly and slowly the importance
of Guru Puja, slowly as you come across, more and more, because now you are in the ways of Satgurudev – you are free from materialistic ways. You have been freed from materialistic ideas, and now you have to take an oath to obey Guru Maharaj Ji's orders because He will take us and guide us and our minds through the crooked ways of materialism. We have to obey Guru Maharaj Ji. He knows better than us. He knows better than anyone. If you tell a boy that a tiger is coming he will weep because he knows that maybe it'll be dangerous; and the boy's mother will see the tiger coming and protect her boy. In the same way Guru Maharaj Ji will guide us from the ways of this world; these ways are so horrible that wherever we go we weep because of them. A poor man will think that a rich man is very happy and a rich man will think that a poor man is very happy, but who is happy? The people think that the King is very happy and the King thinks that the people are very happy but who is happy? Only those who have devoted their lives, only those with Knowledge, who have actually realized what is happiness and what is truth. Only they are happy who have this true Knowledge and are meditating.
Lord Krishna was asked, "You are a yogi, you are a mahatma, why do you involve yourself in these materialistic things?" and He answered, "I am setting an example for people – I am in the world but I am not involved. People who are involved cannot do meditation, they do not have time.They are rich without being King". Lord Krishna said, "I am the King of Truth. I am setting the example". Does mercury become dirty When it is put in sand? We have seen a lotus growing in muddy water but do we see and smell just the lotus, do we just enjoy the beauty of.the lotus? No. Because we see the muddy water. We have not realized the importance of the lotus. So don't look at these materialistic forms. Has one got life in order to observe the good deeds and bad deeds of another? Have I the right to say a rose is good?
I have to obtain something from this world goodness. And goodness can only emanate from someone who is good. Who is good? The Holy Master. This is why it is said that Guru is the creator, sustainer and destroyer of the universe, that Guru is everything. Holy Sad Guru I surrender myself to His Holy Lotus Feet. That is why it is important to go to Guru Puja. Guru is not a word in a dictionary. If a devotee has a guru then puja is his life. Understood? He has seen that this Knowledge doesn't take a man into any religion–that is the first realization.
So know that Name and meditate constantly on that Name. Meditate and go on meditating and see what fruits you gain. When we sow a seed we don't know if the apple will be sweet or sour. So wait and meditate and see whether meditation is sweet or sour. And I'll bet you it will be sweet. A banana is never sour, it is always sweet; so a man who sows a banana knows it will be sweet. A lemon is never sweet, it is always sour, and a man who sows a lemon knows it will be sour. Knowledge has a sweet seed and it will also be sweet. Just meditate. All you need is water, mud and meditation. Satsang is water, and Knowledge is mud. Now our meditation has to grow as we grow, and watch for birds who are trying to take away the seeds. This is the deed, this is the task we now have to do. Side by side with the tasks of the world we must meditate.
And what is the importance of Guru? Suppose my father put £70,000 under the floor for me but I didh't know where. My father only said you can have it when you grow older. But suppose a man is living there who saw my father putting it under the floor – when I go to him and he tells me where it is then I can go and get it. Before, even though I was there and the money was there it was no use to me. So that man who shows it to me is very valuable to me. In the same way you are there and the Knowledge is there and–God is there, we are all there. But do we know it? No. But who comes into our lives to give us that Knowledge which reveals to us the Truth? The Guru. Only Guru. When Guru comes into our life He reveals true Knowledge and we are satisfied from our very hearts.
So now you must take this mission further. Keep carrying it on. Go on and go on. Don't think this road will lead you to hell. No. This road will lead you to heaven. And to reach heaven we must go up, not down. Up and up and up. If you want to reach heaven increase your meditation; If you want to reach hell decrease your meditation. You can go either way. Decrease your meditation if you want to go to hell. Increase your meditation if you want to go to heaven. Use the reverse gear and the car will go backwards, use the forward gear and the car will go forwards. Because of one thing only the whole thing is changed. So now we have to increase meditation and go to heaven.
Try and try and try. If the Americans hadn't tried they wouldn't have reached the moon. Only trying did it. When a man tried he made the car, when he tried he made the aeroplane. When a man doesn't try he never knows his own ability. In the Middle Ages they didn't have an aeroplane because they never tried to make one.
So it is when a man comes to Knowledge. Now he knows how to meditate. So keep trying and you will gain something. Slowly by slowly, if we really try, inner satisfaction will come to us.
16 July 1971
This was Maharaj Ji's last satsang before He left for the United States. It was held in the same small church hall that had seen the joyous Guru Puja meeting a week before but this time there was a little sadness. Maharaj Ji had asked all premies to attend.
Actually, we expected more premies than this but they have not come. Maybe it is because their need for materialistic things means more to them than their need of spiritual Knowledge or holy company.
(Shri Guru Maharaj Ji then quoted from an Indian poet).
People today have left the holy company of holy people and are adopting the company of materialistic things. Now I know that first of all your stomach should be filled before you fill your soul but don't forget that the need for your soul to be filled up is very essential. It is good that you are filling your stomachs, but how are you filling your soul? In whose holy company are you living?
When great luck favours a man, then is the holy Knowledge attained and with good fortune every man is able to receive satsang. But it is said that Guru Maharaj Ji, the one who will come at the end of Kaliyuga with His full power, will remove luck and fortune. He will open His Kingdom for everyone to enter and no one will need luck or fortune to get a ticket. Anyone who really wants a ticket will be able to get one.
Guru Maharaj Ji is so kind to humanity. First of all he created God, the God who has given us this human form. And then He comes into this world. What is the nature of this kindness He gives? It is such that He gives us the most precious thing in the world. The most precious thing of all He gives us, free. Without any charge He gives us the priceless jewel, the priceless diamond. It is worth more than the Koh–i–nor or any other diamond. It is the Koh–i–nor of all the Koh–i–nors. And if someone does not want this gift, it is not the fault of Guru Maharaj Ji.
Whenever He comes as a man into this world, everybody criticizes Him except those people who are His devotees. Why is this? On the television the police lady said "Whether He is the Lord or not I will still give Him a ticket". The Jews criticized Jesus. Do you think St John also criticized Jesus? Jesus was the Lord only to His disciples to whom He had given Knowledge, and not to those people who criticized Him. He was the Lord for those women who believed in His Word and who came to His grave. Even when He told them He would come again on a certain day, even then they believed.
So remember this; whatever order Guru Maharaj Ji gives us we must obey. Till now we have been obeying the orders of all the materialistic gurus, and the main one of these is the mind. We have been led into terrible ways, into the crooked ways of materialism and the mind. But now we have to obey Satguru Maharaj Ji so that He can lead us to the right and perfect path.
This is probably my second to last satsang. I want to arrange a very big programme in Central Hall, Westminster and I want as many premies as possible to come there. All premies should come. You should also bring your friends and relatives to that function because if you are able to show them something right and good their souls will bless you. Why? Because you will have shown them such a good thing, it is the thing they have been needing all through their lives. So bring them to that hall. The function will take place on 5th November when I have come back from my world tour. After that programme, a jumbo jet is to be chartered to carry just premies, and nobody else, from Heathrow right to Palam Airport in Delhi.
So tell the people that many masters go and come back, many gurus go and come back but they have never come back with a chartered flight with them! Show them the ability of the True Master! What did the others bring, and what has this one brought? Now let's show them two things: that devotees have brought with them Guru Maharaja Ji and on the other hand that Guru Maharaja Ji has brought His devotees with Him. And a jumbo jet can accomodate 360 passengers, who will all be going to attend satsang. People from Germany will come, from England, America, Canada, South Africa, many people will come. So we want you premies also to save up some money and come on that chartered flight in the jumbo jet.
You don't know what sort of ideas some people have in their minds about you. You must show them that you are real devotees, faithful devotees who have gone with Guru Maharaja Ji to India. You have to show them these things. These things must be seen. Do you understand? Guru Maharaja Ji knows what is needed. So try to come in this jumbo jet, try because now 360 western premies will be attending as special guests. and the whole function will be televised all over India.
Devotion to the Perfect Master
Show people that you have the Holy Name, tell them who has given you that Holy Name and how strong your love is for Him. Look at the love that the gopis had for Krishna; you have heard about the gopis, the young disciples of Krishna whose love attracted their Lord from two hundred miles away. But look at the love that you have which has brought me thousands and thousands of miles from India to here! And what created such a strong love? Only the Knowledge created this love.
Knowledge brings with it a love machine than can generate such a strong thread of love that the Holy Master can be pulled by it. This machine is a love–making generator so that whenever you wish that Guru Maharaja Ji should come here you just start generating, and sure enough He will come. That's why He never needs bodily and materialistic things, only the soul, and the soul is known by what we call devotion. And what is devotion, what is it really? For you must know what devotion is. Devotion is that true love that is not sold in the market. You can never get it like you can get apples or bananas or chilies. It comes from deep inside yourself and it only happens when God and His devotee are working together. Now we have to create that love, so start working on your generator. I suppose you never knew about this. Only those few who knew about that generator started the generator and called me here. Now everybody has to start that generator.
The fact is that when you are helping to get the Westminster programme together by bringing along your friends and relatives you are not only helping your friends and relatives but the whole of humanity. Because many people will come and listen. They will not only listen but they will think it over. They will not only think it over but they will attain the holy Knowledge.
Confidence in truth
If you have this Knowledge, share it in full confidence that this is the holy Knowledge and that it is bringing you full satisfaction of mind and true peace, and that you will always go on with it and never stop. Because sufferers are those people who do not have full confidence in themselves. If I know that this road will lead me to where I am going, to the perfect place where I want to go, I will just go straight on and follow it. But if I know that this path will lead me to a ditch, I will never follow it. But people haven't got confidence. They have lost their confidence, I don't know why. But now they have to wake up. You are awake, but wake up from that awakeness also. You have woken up. After first being asleep you have now woken up but now you have to wake up FROM YOUR WAKE–UP. This is the thing.This is the real and only thing that we now have to do.
Why have I come to London, and what will make me come again? I have not come in order to see the world with its materialism. These materialistic things are being bought by money. If somebody has got money he can buy these materialistic objects. This is nothing. I can create thousands
and thousands of the same things. I have only come fill my stomach with your love. That's why I have come. Not to see materialism. I can see materialism in India. If I want to see a movie, I can see it in my house. I can tell Guru Charnanandji, please make a movie of such a place, or such people and send it to India so that I can see it. But this movie cannot contain your love. Even if it shows people shedding tears, it tells me no more than that. But what sort of tears are they and what 'electricity' are those tears creating? The movie cannot tell me that.
Guru Maharaj Ji has come into this world not to see this world but to spread His spiritual Knowledge. Many people ask "Do you want to become a king?" I say "Yes, I want to become a king." "But why?" they say. "Spirituality has nothing to do with political things." But I say yes it does. With this same Knowledge Krishna made Arjuna ready to fight. He gave Arjuna Knowledge and said "These are foes, kill them." Rama also told His monkeys to build a bridge then to fight. But not for an idle cause, only for benefit. Understand this. When Krishna took charge of the kingdom what did He give to the people? He gave them the true Kingdom and He showed the true path to all. I told people who asked me about power. You have tried thousands and thousands and thousands of prime ministers and thousands and thousands of presidents, but not one of them could put peace in your hands.
Now you also have more confidence in your mind that only a true Master will bring peace to the world. Only a true King, and only one King. How can a country be governed well if it has four kings? Look what is happening in the world; one president is saying I should have this country. Pakistan is saying "No I should have East Pakistan". East Pakistan is saying "No, I should have East Pakistan". West Pakistan is saying "I should have India". China is saying "I should have India". And all this sort of thing. Why is this? Why does fighting always take place? Because there are several presidents. If there is one president, he will not have to say go and fight here, separate this kingdom, annexe that kingdom.
Because everything will be his kingdom.
All those thousands and thousands of ministers, prime ministers, presidents and kings, all have been unable to bring humanity and brotherhood to man so who will bring brotherhood? The World Master. Only the World Master can bring real humanity and real peace in this world because He has got Knowledge. He can give people such a thing that will instill in them real brotherhood, and this is because He has got true spiritual Knowledge. I have got true spiritual Knowledge and I have to control the whole of mankind. Not one man, two men, three men, four men, but the whole of humanity. Because what is the work of the true Master? Only to save the whole of humanity from going to hell.
Confusion caused by separation
If I wanted to see a president to ask him to save humanity, first I would have to make an appointment about a year in advance. Then after one year he will give me some time. So I will go to him and after a few minutes his bodyguards will say your time is over, now you must go. For one year the appointment was made and then I could only talk for five minutes. Can this bring any benefit to humanity? It is nothing.
What is real politics? What is real religion? Religion started from realization of God. If people have not realized the Knowledge of God, how can they follow the true religion? So what does religion mean today? As far as I can see it means only the separation of humanity. That's all. Separation. Why do Muslims not wish to mix with Hindus. Does the Hindu have one eye on top of his head? Does the Muslim have a separate radar on his head moving like this? Does the Hindu have seven eyes? Is this the reason for him desiring separation? No. It is only religion.
So what is this true religion? Only realization can touch it. Have you seen God? No. Then who are you calling? God? Have you seen God? No. Why not? Because you have not yet realized, you have not yet gone high enough.
What is Hinduism? What is Christianity? What was the Christianity that Jesus taught in His time? 'What was the Buddhism that Buddha taught in His time? What Hinduism did Krishna teach in His time? What Muslimism did Mohammed teach in His time? You must know. Today they are making temples and saying Hare Krishna, Hare Rama. But when Rama came, what happened? Ravanna came and took away his bride. When Krishna came also everyone opposed Him. So now we are worshipping them and chanting Hare–Krishna and Hare Rama, but what were we doing then?
Whenever God comes, the priests are the first people to oppose Him.You can read every scripture and find the same thing. Priests are the first people to oppose Him. I don't know much about Jesus Christ but I do know about the Indian saints and the reason is this. Whenever the Lord comes, He teaches the true religion and above all things He will not go and.bow before Himself. God will never do this, yet priests insist that He goes and bows in the temple. But to whom do these temples belong? To God. Will God go and bow before His own lotus feet? For what is the Holy Master doing when He bows at the lotus feet of Rama or Krishna in the temple? He would be bowing to His own lotus feet.
Who am I now? They say to me, "No, you are not the Master. The True Master will never come". If the True Master will never come, why do you pray to Him? No need to pray. No need to have Knowledge of Him: No need to know His Name. He is not coming, so no need to know His Name. If you want a man to come from India, you will write him a letter saying please come. But if the man is dead, would we also write him a letter saying please come? Only if we know he is able to visit us will we write him a letter. It is like that. One mahatma of mine met those Hare Krishna and Hare Rama people and said, "Know that Holy Name which is within you". They replied, "We don't want to know this Holy Name. We just want to love our Krishna and Rama". So he said, "Do you believe what Krishna said?" "Yes, of course", they replied. Then he told them that Krishna said, "O Arjuna, you cannot see me with these mortal eyes. So to whom are you praying?" He asked them, "Have you seen the one to whom you are praying?" They became silent.
These people build a beautiful image and say, "O I love you" but in a previous life they hated Him and are like this now because they will hate Him again. So we have to learn the true religion and follow that Master who will help us throughout our life. The holy and true Master will help us throughout our life and you people have known Him, for this meeting was kept especially for premies, and your duty now is to meditate.
Constant meditation brings inevitable success
The Knowledge is like food. As food must be eaten to be of any effect, so the Knowledge must be meditated upon. Some people think that as soon as the Knowledge comes to them they will see the full manifestation of their soul, but this is not the case. When you put one foot on the
step of a staircase do you immediately go to the top? No. You have to keep on going, keep on climbing, and then you reach the top. You do not reach the roof or even the first floor, straightaway. You have to keep going slowly. Then you will get where you want to go. Even with these automatic staircases that you have nowadays it still takes some time. It does not go, say, 7,000 miles per hour so that in a half or a quarter of a second you will reach the first floor. It also takes some time. With a lift also, you will step in and you press the button, but it still takes some time. And then you want the full manifestation of God in one second? Meditate, then inevitably you will get it. Meditate. Those who have never meditated cannot, but the people with the Knowledge have seen the Word within. Those people who have received this Knowledge have to meditate on it. In Mahatma Ashokanand Ji's English we should must meditate on this Knowledge. Do you see? Otherwise you won't get success in your life.
There are automatic cars today; you just press the gear and the accelerator and the car will go by itself. If you just press the gear and not the accelerator, will it go? It won't go. There are computers that do calculations but if you just stand before them and don't press the button, will they work? They won't work. You have just to press the button, then everything will start. Try. In a fair there are contests with rings that you throw like this and ultimately the prize will come to you. If you try, the prize will come to you. If you try. Now they have made an Apollo and have been able to reach the moon. When they tried, they succeeded. And the Apollo was going at such a speed, thousands and thousands of kilometres per hour, but it did not reach the moon in one day. It took some time. So it will also take time to reach God.
Likewise it is an automatic process when you know His Name and begin to meditate. The first thing is that the steam created by meditation will liquify 4and wash your sins. Then when you meditate again a cloth will come and dry your soul. Then what will happen? Next time you meditate it will be polished. Then when you meditate again, a sort of solution will be applied that will make it shine forever. Then when you meditate again you will- reach the spiritual end. You will be absolutely clean. See? But if you don't meditate, what will happen? After the first meditation the liquid will come around your soul and any sins that then pass by will be more easily attached to it. For it is a liquid and most liquids have some stickiness in them. If you did only the second meditation only, then your soul would only be dry. After the third, it would only be polished.
After the fourth time then it will be given the finishing touch and after five or six times it will be truly clean. But if you do not continue sins will come and be attached. Even though you polish a car, after you have driven it again you need to dust it. In the same way dust settles on our souls and covers them and our cloth to keep them clean is meditation. We have just to concentrate and everything happens automatically.
Mending broken people
In a computer you can open the machine and see how it functions. But with this mind the functioning is psychological. The mind is the best computer in the world. A mechanical computer needs the button to be pressed but the human mind computer does everything without needing the button to be pressed. And now this fine computer has gone wrong. So this is why the Satguru comes, and he will set a screw here in the forehead. There is a screw here and when we go to a mechanic he will use a screwdriver. But the screw is far too small for these screwdrivers and instead of tightening it they destroy it. When you go to the proper guru, he will use the right screwdriver in such a way that the screw will be fixed. As soon as that screw is adjusted the oil that is leaking into the carburettor will stop; only petrol will get through and then the car will go. Now, suppose the men who made the car by mistake let an oil pipe fall into the carburettor. So whenever we try to start and the oil pressure is increasing then oil is being released into the carburettor. What happens? Smoke comes out of the silencer. It's the same thing when people say "Oh, why was the world made?" That is only smoke coming out of the silencer. But when Satguru comes He tightens the screw and the oil shuts off. Only the essence of petrol will come through and your ear will run smoothly.
Everything is OK
So this is the main trouble. If you go to other mechanics they will spoil your screw. And then what will happen? You won't be able to get it fixed. I have experienced this myself with tape recorders. I have ruined them because I can't find the 'X' type screwdriver to fit their 'X' type screw. So I try to tighten them with another kind of screwdriver that fits that perfect screw: they just go together. Now maybe I am not a good technical man, but I do have the international screwdriver. It will fit any of you.
The screw is here but it is a magnetic screw and can only be tightened by a magnetic screw-
driver. You will see neither the screw nor the screwdriver. It is a magnetic thing and can only be tightened by a magnetic thing. So now your screw has been tightened and you can go.
But there is one more thing. Your battery water is finished. You are not putting water in your battery.
Every day is here. You are feeling all right also. Everything is OK. But you are not putting water in the battery and the current is not coming. If the current is not coming and everything else is OK then what will happen? The car won't go on. So you should go to Guru Maharaj Ji. See Him. Attain His darshan. When we see Him all the sins that we do are taken away. But when do we really see Him? When we have attained His true Knowledge. Then we are free. So go to that mechanic and get your car freed, then have it tested every year. If it is a very old car you have to go to a garage and get a top–to–bottom servicing. And if you don't have your car tested after each year or two years or three years what will happen? God will stamp you with a stamp which reads this man is not OK, and you will not be fixed again. This means you will not be fit again to receive Knowledge or to do meditation. And this is not OK. Then things might start going right again and you can go again to Guru Maharaj Ji's lotus feet. And when you .go to Satguru, Satguru will come and check you. If He sees that you are OK, He will take a white scotch tape, not a transluscent one, one that we can't see through and He puts it on that this man is not OK stamp. And God will come and say "This Man is OK", then He'll pull off the tape and all the ink will have vanished. So that man will be fixed for all his life. It is only on the Guru whether He does this trick or not. So you have to be very careful with yourself.
So get His darshan, and hear His satsang, and every one of your doubts will be taken away. Your starter is fixed, the dynamo, every screw in the car, every nut is tested. Your car is started and even then if you have any questions, you only have to ask. Even when your car is working well, if you have any doubts, come to me. Then your car will not only be washed but polished also. Everything is done. So once or twice or three times a year it is important for everyone to have darshan. Just call me, make full preparations and I will come. But you must do the preparing first.
I am the head engineer. And the head engineer instructs his sub–engineers who are mahatmas. Mahatma Guru Charnanand is an assistant head engineer, He is the head of those engineers who are stayipg here. If you go to him he will just take the screw and he will test whether it is OK or not. And these mechanics haven't got any screw-driver. If they try very hard they will tighten it by hand, but a screwdriver they do not have. Only the grace of Satguru Maharaj Ji can allow them to tighten screws. Otherwise no.
You are really the luckiest of people. After some time you won't be getting satsang like this. When eighteen or nineteen million people are sitting for darshan and satsang it will not be like this. Instead a T.V. set will be placed before you .and I will be sitting in a room and you will see me make tea. This is why you are lucky to be here now.
Often it happens that car companies do not produce a good rim, in which case it goes crooked. When that happens the type starts to go crooked and the whole car starts shaking like this. So go to Satguru; Satguru's rims and tyres, Satguru's starter, Satguru's battery water, and His screwdriver also, are recommended for all humanity. You have to go on, but in what condition do you want to go on? Go to Satguru and say I want Your grace to be with me permanently, and what will He do? He will make your old car new, absolutely new. Look at this fellow Bihari Ji. He is an uneducated man. He is an uneducated Indian and is in London. Now He is going to America, then South Africa and touring the whole world with me. Permanent grace. See? An example of permanent grace. Arjuna also had permanent grace.
Now there are three types of grace, which have made for the convenience of people. Two kinds of graced can be attained by only a few. But permanent grace can be attained by everyone. This is the grace that you are attaining. Mahatmas also have got permanent grace. With permanent grace you are non–automatic. Bihari Ji is so lucky, all my appointments are made by him. Whenever he drives the car he tells me such–and–such a man wants to meet me, such–and–such a man, this one here wants to meet you, and that one there. I think he's the luckiest man in the world. And the luckiest thing he has got is that, by staying with me, he has got the holiest of company. Every day his screw is tightened. Every day. Petrol is thrown on him. And now it is being thrown on several people who are coming inside. Because now I have got several pumps, four or five petrol pumps and those water pistols too.
So I have told you what I wanted to tell you. I have told you in a jokey way because as I told you this is the second last company this year. So let it be a joking and laughing one. Why be serious? We have heard so many serious satsangs. My grace is always upon you and I am very happy for all you have done to help my programmes. I am very happy with you because you have tried your best. Every one of you has tried. Whenever I come to your country I will always expect this
type of service and this type of behaviour. It is fantastic that so many programmes have been carried out. So enjoy yourselves, not in clubs or somewhere like that. Just enjoy yourselves.
When someone asks you, "What sort of person are you? Why are you so happy? Is it because you are away from materialistic things?" Then say "I have the company of such a man who has given me happiness. He is my friend. He has given me happiness." And won't you share all the happiness or even half the happiness that that man has given? Yes of course. Now that friend of mine has given me the whole happiness, so you people take half. Here, share half the happiness amongst all. Is that all right? Be happy.
Some people are unhappy because a man has died and they are sad and start to cry. But if someone dies, where will he go? He will go back to the same storeroom and after several days he will reappear. Don't worry. He will be kept. And where he has gone, you will also go, so why cry? There was a woman in Kohinbapur, whose young son died. She came to me weeping and I said, "Why are you weeping?" She said she was weeping over her young boy. And I said, "Why are you crying? You will go there also and meet him when you go, so why are you crying?" Then she started laughing.
Why be sad? Be sad sometimes, not for the sake of crying but only for the sake of being serious; this is why sadness was created. That's why I like that sort of man who is rather fat. Such a man is always happy. Happy company is always good. Be happy. Make everybody happy. First you be happy and then everybody will be happy. So be happy and my grace will be with you, as my blessings are always with you. You have tried your best for London and these Leicester premies have tried their best for Leicester. It is because they have tried their best for Leicester and you have tried your London–best that such nice programmes have taken place.
And a final touching. I have not done a final touching yet because when I do, I will put such a type of solution on your souls that for several years it will give off a certain gas that will repel all sins. As soon as sins smell that gas, they will move away. So try your best. Try your best throughout life. Just try your best for your whole life. Those who don't try don't get. Those who try, do.
Now you have to prepare for the final touch. There is still a main entrance of sins into that room where soul takes place, where the soul is living. I have to close that entrance and put that solution on the door. Until then sins can enter the soul at any time. I shall be applying this solution in the Central Hall, Westminster. So all of you prepare. Prepare as much as you can.
Let the people think, "Who is this Guru? What is Divine Light Mission?" Most of the people take Divine Light Mission as a joke. Let them. They will see what Divine Light Mission really is. Just keep trying your best, as much as you can.
I am very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very into three hundred into brackets and then again into millions and millions times happy very very very very brackets happy with you people that you have tried your best.
Now there is one thing more. Let that thing happen and then we will, you must, all dance and be happy.
This is a publication of the Divine Light Mission, an organisation dedicated to the spreading of the Word, which is the foundation for all religions and spiritual ideologies. The gift that GURU MAHARAJ JI bears unto the true seeker of knowledge is for all people of all the world. It transcends the barriers of culture and generation and occupation and life style; it opens the heart of whoever receives it, and allows them to love for the first time in their lives, with a love that asks nothing in return. This is the gift that answers all questions, that removes worry and creates the fullest possible life. Guru Maharaj Ji is the manifestation of the power which can breathe life into all human beings. All He asks in order to reveal our true selves to us is that we come to him with a guileless heart, and truly wish to know the Truth.

If I told you an elephant was 2″ high would you believe me? Or if I told you an ant was 7′ tall would you believe me? Of course not. But if I showed you, you would have to believe. Believe in the practical not in the theory. If you say God exists then I will ask you to show me.
