Shri Devi Puja: The Essence of Self Respect Carla's House, Istanbul (Turkey)

Shri Devi Puja, “The Essence of Self-respect”. Istanbul (Turkey), 27 May 1989. I’ve been desiring all the time that I should go to Turkey or Tunisia where there could be an entry into the Islamic world, because they have been promised that they will be resurrected, and that resurrection has to take place. For that I have to venture and give them their resurrection which is promised by Mohammed Sahib, I mean that’s My duty; and not only duty, but I’m bound by it, that I have to tell them about their resurrection and to save them. They deserve it, no doubt. When all the religions prospered in a very funny manner, I would say, separately, everyone thinking they are the best, the chosen ones, the highest ones, the greatest ones, believing in themselves, they started going down and down and down. The reason is, there is no respect for each other. And the respect is not there because there is no respect for oneself.

Public Program Istanbul (Turkey)

1989-0527 Public Program Hotel Hilton, Istanbul, Turkey. This morning I saw the beautiful sea that is surrounding this beautiful place of Istanbul and the nature so beautiful all around.

There are other animals but it’s absolutely clean and there is no bad smell or anything anywhere. But if some human being go and live there then you will immediately know. The reason lies with us that we have not yet achieved our absolute  being which is so glorifying and so beautiful. As it is we have evolved much more than animals. You can see if you ask a dog to pass through any dirty lane he can do it very easily, no problem. And you see even a horse doing the same thing. But human beings cannot. They cannot bear the dirt  and filth. So we have evolved. We have evolved to the state where we are human beings. But still l may tell you whatever we may believe into, whatever faith we may have, still we are not powerful people because we give way to wrong things very easily. Now it was said, Mohammed Sahib had said that one should not drink alcohol. It was for our good because it goes against our human awareness. But I don’t blame people who drink because they are not saints. Say if they are in  the yard Read More …
