At the very outset one has to know that truth is what it is, we cannot conceptualize it, we cannot imagine about it, we cannot organize it, we cannot change it.

Birthday Puja, March 21, 1991, Mumbai, translation from Hindi
whole world is gleefully celebrating our birthday. All this makes me
so emotional that till now no children would have loved their mother
so much, like you love me. This is the glory of Shri

Talk to yogis. Pratishthan, Pune (India), 14 December 1990.
I asked some of the boys, “What is your policy?” They said, “We have no policy.” “Then what is your aim?” “We have no aim.” “Then why are you doing this nonsense?” They said, “Because whatever the elders tell us, we do it.” I said, “Have you no personality?

Public Program, Kiev, Ukraine, 1990-0629
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to understand that at human awareness we cannot feel the truth. We have to become a subtler being to understand the absolute truth.
