The discourses of Shri Raja Ji, brother of Shri Guru Maharaj Ji
I hope this issue will satisfy you. Though not perfect we try to make it as perfect as we can. We aim this magazine towards the premies and don't think they will be interested in other magazines, because, being a devotee myself, I think that any magazine that doesn't print Guru Maharaj Ji's satsang is horrible. Being the editor of this magazine, I am only expressing my own views of course. They may be wrong or right, but every other editor has his own views to express and being no special man I do so also. It is for the readers to judge if I am right or wrong. They are the people to whom this job is given, because to a man who is thirsty water is important and he is the one who can judge its value. In the same way, for us Guru Maharaj Ji's darshan and his satsang are important. So we publish the most important thing and that is the holy words of Guru Maharaj Ji. We received a few letters complaining that our magazine contained mostly satsang and not worldly things. But dear premies, whatever the world may think, Guru Maharaj Ji and His satsang is the most important thing. If we need the love of Guru Maharaj Ji we should meditate on the Knowledge He has given us, understanding the importance of time, and realizing that time never repeats itself. It is never too late to understand and to make a firm resolution to serve Guru Maharaj Ji and to meditate upon His perfect Knowledge, which is the one and only way towards the Almighty.
Shri Raja Ji
What is Real Love : You know, you could be sitting in a restaurant having some nice food, and see somebody really good-looking. You think, "Wow." You just keep on looking at that person, and that person sort of looks at you. She is attracted to you, you are attracted to her, and it starts. Maybe you invite her to your table, or you go to her table, and it carries on. You are quite happy about it, and soon you think you love her. But, is it real love? What happens after one year? You find her boring, and she finds you boring."
The Game of Living : "Everybody is playing games with each other. The rich one is playing a game with the poor man, taking money from him. The poor man is playing a game some other time with the rich man. The government plays a game with the rich man; the rich man plays a game of tax evasion. Everybody is playing a game. So everybody is playing a game, and you can play a game with them and try to get them into Knowledge. Once they get into the Knowledge, they realize what the right thing is, and everything is fine. There is no more game; everybody knows what is the Truth."
It's not the Words You Should Believe… : "What is happening in the world: man is running after dollars and pounds. The question is, should man run after money?….If a man who devotes himself to making money sees something greater than money and leaves the money that very moment, and goes towards that other thing, it is very good. But if he doesn't leave the money at that time, it is very bad."
A Sacrifice is Needed : "We all have to be ready for sacrifice, you know, because sacrifice is real nice right now. When there will be peace in the world, then they come to Guru Maharaj Ji with a nice, Guru Maharaj Ji, I am ready to give any sacrifice. "Well, take your sacrifice, keep it in your pocket. We don't need a sacrifice right then when there is peace in the world. We need your sacrifice right now because now is the time to give sacrifice. Devote your lives to Guru Maharaj Ji and spread the Knowledge which he has given you,.."
What is Real Love
Raja Ji gave this satsang at a public program in Denver, Colorado in the Auditorium Theatre on 20 September 1975.
Dear brothers and sisters, this world is quite a thing, I think. Every day we make things, things are being invented towards a certain direction - supposedly for peace, supposedly for our own growth - but, really, they just bring us frustrations. Really they make us even more unhappy.
Just as an example, they came out with the Concorde and everybody was really happy. We could do New York/London in three hours, and how fantastic it was. What a marvelous invention it was for the French and the British.
But now there are problems. When it breaks the sonic boom, it makes a hole in the atmosphere, and it will be very bad for the earth. So that jet, in spite of its benefits, is a frustration; we can't really utilize it completely. And it's just about the same with everything. You know? We want something, and the mind says, "l must have this," "I must have that," "I must have this." But what we really need is peace of mind. Peace.
Egypt and Israel were fighting, and then they stopped. But that's not peace. It's the stopping of war between two countries, between two nations. Yet even though wars stop, and, say, the United Nations really works and there is no war, that's not peace. Peace has to be experienced by every one of us, not by complete nations. First everything has to start at home, and that's within us. We have to experience peace within us. And we can experience this peace by the beautiful meditation which Maharaj Ji shows.
The meditation he shows is an art. It's not a new art; it has always been here. In the time of Jesus Christ it was here. All the different scriptures describe the same thing: the Holy Name, or the Word, or whatever name they call it. And that's what we have to realize; that's what we have to concentrate on, that's what we have to meditate on - the Word.
Once we can attain that, through meditation, we can be at a very beautiful place. Our consciousness will rise; our level will be much higher. We won't be playing any more games with each other. We will at least be honest with each other by saying what we think. That's the state we have to come to in order to understand what this meditation is all about, and what Guru Maharaj Ji is all about.
Maharaj Ji makes receiving this meditation very simple for us. It's nothing difficult. In the past, if we really see, it was very difficult. A person had to wait, and do this, and that, and this, and that. Now it's much more simple. All we have to do is go with a childlike heart, and he will give us the peace we have always been looking for.
You know, you could be sitting in a restaurant having some nice food, and see somebody really good-looking. You think, "Wow." You just keep on looking at that person, and that person sort of looks at you. She is attracted to you, you are attracted to her, and it starts. Maybe you invite her to your table, or you go to her table, and it carries on. You are quite happy about it, and soon you think you love her.
But, is it real love? What happens after one year? You find her boring, and she finds you boring. She finds you are the same old Mr. X or Mr. Y, and you think she is the same old Ms. X or Ms. Y. You are bored completely, because that wasn't the real love.
What we have to experience is real love, which is inside of us. We have to open that. We have to experience this Light that is inside us. That Light was always there. When a child comes to this world, he has this Light. It's the nature of a human being to like light, because that's where we come from - Light. But, momentarily, we are closed from it. So that's what we look for, to experience some light. That's why we sleep at night and get up during the day, because that's our real nature, to be in light. But we have to find that real Light, which is responsible for the creation of the whole universe, and which is inside of us.
We have to seek it. We have to go to Guru Maharaj Ji and ask him for this gift of meditation, and he'll reveal that Light to us. It's nothing he gives to us; it's always there. He just reveals it to us. That's the proper word - reveal. He reveals Knowledge to us, and we are happy. Then he says, "Okay, all systems go," and we can really attain that Light.
All we have to do is meditate. What Maharaj Ji gives us we always have, and all we have to do is follow the path, meditate on it, concentrate on it, try to bring our mind in focus, and try to attain oneness with that thing which he shows us. Because the thing he shows us is what we have been looking for, the main source.
Once we attain oneness with that thing, we are okay. We know our real source, we know where we come from, and everything can be fine. We can live in this world together; we can have a perfect family. You know, we have a small one, but it's not much. There are only one million people in this family. That's not even half of India's population. So we have to increase this family, because that's what we have to attain - a place where there is complete peace, a world where people love each other, a world based on love. The axis of the world should be love. We have to base it on love instead of atom bombs, because that's what everybody needs - love.
By attaining this meditation that Maharaj Ji gives to us, we can love, because we know the true source of love inside of us. We can completely keep on giving love, because we know the source. I can only give you a certain amount of love, but because I know the source of love, I can always go and get some more and give it to you. That source is infinite, and I can always keep on giving it to you. And you can do the same thing once you find the source of love, the vibration from where everything is coming, the thing which is running us, which when it goes away from us we are called dead. Maharaj Ji shows us that thing, and that's what we have to meditate on, that's what we have to realize.
Maharaj Ji gave this beautiful festival in Essen, Germany. It was really beautiful, because there were all these people - the Italians, the French, the British, the Danish, the Scandinavians - and in spite of the language barriers and the cultural barriers they have, everybody was experiencing the same love, because everybody had the same source, everybody had experienced the same thing. It was very easy for them to be together.
It's like, when a conference gets together for an AAA convention, everybody has a common interest there. Everybody is a member of AAA, so everybody can get together, and they can talk about certain things. The same way there. Everybody wasn't a member of anything, but everybody had experienced the same thing. Each person had experienced something which everybody else had experienced. And he was happy because he had attained a certain realization, which a lot of other people there had, too.
They couldn't really communicate so beautifully. I was speaking English, and other people were speaking in Italian or French, but still they could get the message. Even though the language was not the same, the sense was still being communicated because the love was there. What they were trying to communicate was love and it was understood. That's what we have to achieve - a state of the world where we can easily communicate without any problems, without anything in between us. And we can only do it by attaining this meditation.
All the different scriptures in the world say that we have to attain that. That's why we have to break the different language barriers. And all we have to do is receive this Knowledge, receive this meditation, and it will really help us a lot.
Love is everything we are looking for, really. That's where it's at - love. So we try different things, we really get into certain things, like booze, or women, or whatever, hundreds of different kinds of things. We think, "Okay, that's it. Let's get high on this, and let's get high on that," or "Let's get into this." But after a time, we get really tired of it.
A really good example of it was Onassis. He was really rich and he was doing everything. He was a billionaire, he had everything, a beautiful yacht, beautiful cars, something none of us have. All of us think we would be very happy to be in that state, if we had all that. Then we'll say we're in paradise.
He had everything. And then his son died. Everything he was doing was actually for his son, so when his son died, he was really unhappy. It was quite a blow for him. He said, "What am I doing now? For whom I am making it?" If you have been following the whole story, everything really went downhill for him then.
At that point, what he needed was love. He didn't need money. For him, he had been through the whole trip.
What he needed was some love. He needed the source of love, something to meditate on, this Knowledge. But then he passed away.
A lot of people think, "Okay. Maybe I can make a hundred thousand dollars and then I can retire in a farmhouse somewhere and I'll be happy." But they attain a hundred thousand dollars, retire to a farm, and they are still not happy. They want to do some more. For this person, he had attained everything he wanted to; he had just about attained everything he himself dreamt of having. He started from nothing and attained everything himself. He had the world's most beautiful yacht, and everything, but that didn't mean anything to him. He was tired of it. And then he just passed away.
That's how so many of our lives are unless we attain this beautiful Holy Name, this Knowledge, this meditation. Just a blank life. We come in this world, do our thing, and go away. Finished. But why we come in this human body in the first place is to attain a certain thing, to know where our source is.
And it can be really simple. All we have to do is look for it. It's got a very simple test. The simple test for this Knowledge is that you are happy; you are what the young generation calls "blissed out". You are satisfied. You don't want to say, "Okay, I have this, no, maybe I should have that, no, maybe I should have that." That's all irrelevant.
What is relevant for us, then, is being happy, and making sure other people are happy, too, sharing this experience of happiness with other people. That's what we have to achieve. It's very easy. All we have to take is that certain step of making sure we really want it, and like Maharaj Ji says, "If you take one step towards me, I take hundreds towards you."
In Denver, Maharaj Ji is a big figure. And it's very easy for us to get into, "Oh, he has all these cars," and, "Oh, he has all these material things," and, "Oh, he has all this," and, "Oh, he is all this." But, you know, for him, a beautiful Rolls Royce is just a big chunk of metal. He doesn't care. For him it doesn't really matter. I have experienced this for myself. I am quite close to him, and I can see that it doesn't really matter to him. All he really wants is people loving each other, people living in this perfect world, and trying to make this world a place where they can be really happy, a place where people treat each other like human beings. And this meditation can do it. It has certainly done it to me, and done it to the friends I have, and I think it can do it to every one of us. All we have to do is try to attain it.
It's funny, you know. Once you get into this Knowledge, it's always there. It's happening constantly. Even though we don't realize it sometimes, it's always happening. You are eating, and you are still doing it; you are sitting, you are still doing it; you are sleeping, you are still doing it; you are driving, you are still doing it. So you can really easily concentrate on it.
It's a very subtle thing, but it's always there, it's always happening, and you are with it always. All you have to do is realize it, and meditate on it. Realize it. That's all. And that's all I have to say, really. Know that Word, know that Holy Name, know that Light, know that source of peace which is inside us. That's the only way we can attain peace, to realize it ourselves.
If I came here and said, "Okay, ladies and gentlemen, I am going to give you a big lecture on how clean we should dress," and I was terribly dressed myself, you'd laugh at me. You'd say, "Look at him. He is not doing it for himself, and he is telling us to do it." In the same way, that's what I am telling you, that I have realized this Knowledge and it has done something for me. I have been really benefited by it. So it's a beautiful experience, I think, for you to have, too. And then you can really help Maharaj Ji in his cause of making this whole world a beautiful family.
I think that's all I have to say. Thank you very much.
The Game of Living
(And It Is Divine, Volume 2 Issue 6)
Dear premies, to enjoy everything but not to be attached to it is impossible unless you see everything as a game, a game to which you are not attached. As soon as you are attached to a game, nothing works. You get uptight. Suppose for a moment you are racing and somebody overtakes you. If you think it is a game, O.K., you let him pass. But as soon as you take it seriously, seriously enough, then you get mad at him. "You overtook me!" You downshift your car, you upshift your car, you try to overtake him, something happens; you might be in an accident. As soon as you start getting uptight, things start getting wrong. Uptightness starts the fall, from beginning to end.
If you're giving people satsang, think it is a game - that you are a puppet and your duty is to convince this man. Or think like this: that you are an actor and he is an actor, too. There is a camera hidden somewhere you don't know about, and your duty is to convince him of a certain thing which is existing. Or you are an insurance man and you have to sell him insurance. Just convince him of that, thinking there is a camera hidden somewhere, and the director will say, "O.K." to the act you perform when he is convinced. If he is not convinced, so what? It's O.K.; it's just somebody's film you are getting in on. It's not your film; it's his film being wasted. Just think of everything as a game and everything will go fine. But as soon as you get uptight about it… if you go to somebody and he doesn't assent, you get uptight about it, he'll get uptight, you'll get uptight, the act will get uptight - everything will go wrong. So, if you think of everything as a game, everything will flow.
This meditation is there to cool your brain. The mind sees something, snap! There it goes. But then there is a meditation jam which is like anti-skidding brakes. Bang, bang, bang … the brakes don't get burned, but at the same time it's stopped. And that's what Knowledge does. It doesn't take your mind somewhere; so it goes and never comes back. It just keeps it under control.
So, all you have to do is meditate and have the experience. And try to live the same experience again and again. And tell people about the Knowledge. We have to live with Knowledge; we know that. By having the Knowledge and leaving afterwards, nothing will happen. You have to propagate the Knowledge in as many ways as you can, by different ways. I don't know what everybody does, but in their own fields they can propagate Knowledge because they have the experience. They can if they try hard enough - not getting uptight, just playing. I mean, the whole world is a picture. There is a picture inside a picture inside a picture. And a game inside a game inside a game.
Everybody is playing games with each other. The rich one is playing a game with the poor man, taking money from him. The poor man is playing a game some other time with the rich man. The government plays a game with the rich man; the rich man plays a game of tax evasion. Everybody is playing a game.
So everybody is playing a game, and you can play a game with them and try to get them into Knowledge. Once they get into the Knowledge, they realize what the right thing is, and everything is fine. There is no more game; everybody knows what is the Truth. This American man wrote a book, Games People Play a really funny book. It says: "Not knowing what they are doing, in their subconscious people are playing games with each other." That's what happens in the world. Take anything people are doing, anything. Like, "Be nice to me, I'm not feeling well." Things like that. In their subconscious they are playing games.
Once you have this Knowledge you can see who is playing games or not. Then you stop playing games and become serious. But once you have realized the Knowledge, very good, strong enough, then start playing games like horseplay, for the heck of it. You have the meditation there; you have the Knowledge there. You try to do service in the way you can. Then we have a whole life, a future full of prosperity for us, no problems at all.
It's not the Words You Should Believe…
SATSANG OF SHRI RAJA JI - Bristol, 6 January, 1973
It is only by the Grace of Guru Maharaj Ji that all our efforts are turned into success. When one comes to see the exhibition here in this hall, one really sees what is happening in the world: man is running after dollars and pounds. The question is, should man run after money? I don't say no, because to a certain extent it's alright; money is necessary to live. Many people want to have Rolls-Royces and other things. All that is very nice, but there is something more important and that is that we must respect Him who has given us life. We should give Him the greatest respect. Not the kind of respect that is given by a person who earns a lot of money and gives some donation to a church. It's very good to go to church, very nice. But if this man's heart is black and outside he is showing everybody that he is giving this donation, this is no use, because a man should be pure on both sides, inside and outside.
If a man who devotes himself to making money sees something greater than money and leaves the money that very moment, and goes towards that other thing, it is very good. But if he doesn't leave the money at that time, it is very bad. So I believe that loving money is very good but only to a certain extent, to the extent that is really needed. But the moment you see something better than what you are using your money for, you should leave the money and go after that thing.
We have all come in this world to learn something. But what do we have to know? Some people think that we are here to earn money, but the idea behind earning money is just that it enables us to live in this world. A man who earns very little money is alive just as a rich man is also alive. Both men are living, and maybe one is happy and the other is sad. Now suppose one of them has Knowledge; I know that the person who has Knowledge will be happier, although it might not look that way from the outside. But inside he is very happy for he knows that whatever he is doing, it does not matter, because his Lord has given him contentment by showing him the Light and the meaning of life. He has received the only Knowledge that can give him inner contentment and peace. So it is because he has received the Knowledge of Guru Maharaj Ji that he is very happy.
You might be saying that I am saying this because I am His brother. But this is not so because it might have been someone else who told you about Guru Maharaj Ji. I am really one of His devotees myself, and if you ask any devotee here about Guru Maharaj Ji he'll say that Guru Maharaj Ji is everything for him. And I agree with this. But if you don't believe in my words, or in the words of any devotee, don't believe, just wait. A time will come when you will want to know more.
You see, if we have food and we don't eat it, the food will not automatically go inside our stomachs, and we will not be full. We have to eat, we have to take spoons and such things and eat the food. So in the same way, if you want to check our words to see if what I am saying is true, you should first go to other places and search for God, and when you don't find peace and happiness, keep us in reserve, return to us, and we will give you Knowledge.
Now Guru Maharaj Ji has come into the world to give Knowledge of Truth. See, I think He is the Perfect Master and when you receive this Knowledge you will also think the same, but because you have not, you do not think so now. Guru Maharaj Ji is from a royal family. It would have been very easy for Him to stay in the country where He was born. But for the benefit of the people of the world He has left His country and traveled to so many countries. If you ask Guru Maharaj Ji what He wants to do, He says, "I want to study." He wants to lead the life of a schoolboy, a simple boy, but because of us He is leaving His studies. He is Perfect Master and it would have been very easy for Him not to give us this Knowledge, and to just study and have the Knowledge Himself. But you see, great souls, the Guru Maharaj Ji's of their time, came only to reveal this Knowledge. Jesus came in His time, and though He showed the people that He was just a carpenter, actually He was carpenter of human beings. He made bad people good, and good people better.
So now it's the same thing with Guru Maharaj Ji. If He had remained in India and kept the Knowledge for Himself, He would not have spread it all over the world. Great people always take birth for other people. So in the same way, Guru Maharaj Ji has come to give us Knowledge, and now it should be our duty to get this Knowledge. We should try and get it, we should go to Guru Maharaj Ji and ask Him, "May I have the Knowledge?"
The way to receive Knowledge is to go to Guru Maharaj Ji with a child's heart – like a child who wants to go to school, and who when he goes to school really studies. You should go to Guru Maharaj Ji in the same way and ask Him for Knowledge. But first of all, you must come to a neutral stage, you must lose your attachment to materialism, and to come to a neutral stage satsang is very necessary. After hearing satsang you should go to the mahatmas and ask them for Knowledge with a child's heart, not with the heart of a big professor.
The greatness of Guru Maharaj Ji is that He comes to our level, our low level, to make us understand everything. When a teacher wants to teach his students something he goes to the level of the students, but the students can't go to the level of the professor. In the same way, Guru Maharaj Ji comes to our level to make us understand everything, and because every man has different understanding, different powers of understanding, different ways of understanding, Guru Maharaj Ji deals with each person at his own level. That's His greatness. So now there are two necessary points. One is to meditate if we have got Knowledge; the other is that if you have not got Knowledge you should search for it, and if you don't find it you should come to Divine Light Mission.
You can have the necessary addresses for wherever you are in the world. You can search right round the world, but if you don't find this Knowledge come to Divine Light Mission. Divine Light Mission is everywhere throughout the world, so you can get this Knowledge wherever you want. For instance, you can start in England, and if you don't get the Knowledge there you can go to India. Suppose you go from Britain to India, and you get this Knowledge there from the Divine Light Mission, from some Indian mahatma, then if you return to the English Divine Light Mission and say, "I got the Knowledge from the Divine Light Mission in India," you will be speaking wrongly, for don't forget that Divine Light Mission is the same throughout the world, because its Patron is our Lord, Guru Maharaj Ji.
Some people understand the greatness of Guru Maharaj Ji, while other people don't because they have not taken the Knowledge. If we have the Knowledge we should meditate, and if we don't have this Knowledge we should search it out. If we have it, all is well and good. The object of life, what man has come into this world for, is to gain this Knowledge, and unless and until he has gained this Knowledge, he cannot have contentment in this life. The only aim of a man's life is to gain this Knowledge, so if he doesn't have it he should search for it! Thank you everyone.
A Sacrifice is Needed
Shri Raja Ji, 17, Guru Maharaj Ji's next older brother, gave this satsang in Phipps Auditorium in Denver, Colorado, just after Guru Maharaj Ji finished speaking. The program, attended by 1500 people, took place on June 23, 1973.
What you heard just now you can't describe at all. It was, I think, so very nice of Guru Maharaj Ji because he doesn't have so much time to give us, and what it means for us we can't see.
Right now the picture I'm having is a very, very dark world, everything dark. And in the beginning there was only one light. Maharaj Ji came, one very, very bright candle burning, then five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, quite a lot, lot, lot; but none so bright as him.
We are all sitting here, quite a lot of us brothers and sisters, listening to Maharaj Ji speak. What our Lord Guru Maharaj Ji wants us to do, you know, is to make the whole world like that, make everyone a light, light the whole world. That's all he wants us to do. Because he's the main thing - he doesn't say that, but he is.
So there's a main light and all we have to do, you know, all we have to do is to light up. We have lighted ourselves and he is inside us, he is inside you, he is inside me and he is inside everybody. And actually for this time everybody has to play a certain part. What is our part to be played? We have been lighted up and by his grace we have to light up our brothers and sister who are in the same position as we were once upon a time, we were like them but we are not now. So what we have to do is light them up. And how we can light them is everyone's own specialty.
Guru Maharaj Ji is a teacher, a perfect teacher. Now when you go to a school a teacher teaches you. There are only two ways of teaching a student. Either a teacher comes to the level of the student to make him understand everything, or a student goes to the level of the teacher which is very, very impossible. Because if a teacher is teaching a small child who is five or six years old, that five or six years can't reach the teacher. So the teacher comes to the student and teaches him.
Guru Maharaj Ji does the same thing with us; that is his grace. He's at top level, and there are thousands of us, and he comes to the level of everyone of us to make us understand what Knowledge is; he gives us the Knowledge. What we have to do is meditate on the Knowledge which he has given us, meditate on it, because meditation is the very important point of it.
Guru Maharaj Ji has given us a very simple Knowledge, a very nice thing, very good, very far out, very superb. And what we have to do, you know, is to meditate very hard to light up other brothers and sisters who are in the world. We should meditate all the time and be ready for sacrifice. We must sacrifice, this is a very important factor. We don't know how Guru Maharaj Ji may test us at any time, but we have to be ready for sacrifice.
I'll tell you a little story. Guru Teg Bahadur Singh Ji was a Sikh leader, Guru Maharaj Ji of his time, and he had many devotees. This was the time when the Muslim kings were trying to change their religion, Sikhism. Many people, many devotees came to Guru Maharaj Ji to tell him, "Guru Maharaj Ji, save us, you have to!" So Gobind Singh Ji, Guru Maharaj Ji's son, said, "Guru Maharaj Ji, a big sacrifice is needed." That's all Guru Maharaj Ji's son said. A big sacrifice is needed. Five words - that was enough. So Guru Maharaj Ji himself went to Agra where there was a Muslim king.
In Agra Guru Maharaj Ji gave his ring to one of his devotees and told him to take the ring, give it to the jeweler, who was also a devotee, take the money and bring some food. Now Guru Maharaj Ji's ring was quite an extraordinary ring: if one wore it one felt a bit high. So when that devotee who was the jeweler saw that ring, he knew Guru Maharaj Ji was there, and he went to the king to tell him that Guru Maharaj Ji had come.
Guru Maharaj Ji was arrested and taken to Delhi in a very small cage in which he could hardly stand up. There he was asked by the king to show a miracle. Guru Maharaj Ji said, "Oh, miracles are shown by magicians." I that's all he said and his head was chopped off, as well as his devotee's.
See, one devotee betrayed his Lord, another devotee died with him, and a third devotee carried Guru Maharaj Ji's body and head from that place to Guru Maharaj Ji's Holy Mother. So that is the difference between devotees. Which one, which category are we to be? We have to decide ourselves.
We all have to be ready for sacrifice, you know, because sacrifice is real nice right now. When there will be peace in the world, then they come to Guru Maharaj Ji with a nice, Guru Maharaj Ji, I am ready to give any sacrifice. "Well, take your sacrifice, keep it in your pocket. We don't need a sacrifice right then when there is peace in the world. We need your sacrifice right now because now is the time to give sacrifice. Devote your lives to Guru Maharaj Ji and spread the Knowledge which he has given you, which has done so many things for you and which will do so many things for other people.
How many are we in America? A bunch of us, only a group of us. So what we have to do, you know, is sacrifice our lives for Guru Maharaj Ji, and spread his Knowledge because it's so fantastic; spread it to every place possible in the world.
