"And really, I understand that many premies are getting confused. Why they are getting confused? "Oh, Because we don't think Divine Light Mission is running properly," "Oh, because we saw this happening the other day." I'll tell you one thing; that's just an excuse. That's just an alibi - for your mind. Because it's got nothing to do with you. Peace is not going to come out of Divine Light Mission, understand? Peace is inside you. You gotta realise it inside you, not in Divine Light Mission. You don't go to a desk in headquarters and say, "Can I have some peace, please?" Peace is inside of you. Understand? And when people really say this, really, I just feel like saying, "Look, mister, you don't have to come here making excuses of confusion." Because it's really mind that confuses a person. Because mind takes an alibi."
