1002-0423 Talk to Sahaja Yogis from Africa, Istanbul,
It should not come to your people because you live with the nature and nature is not corrupted. Every leaf which is on a tree receives the sunshine; every leaf is different in the world and they are well organized in such a manner that all of them receive the sunlight. But in corruption, one wants to have all and everything. And then, he doesn’t know what the joy in giving to others is. […]

I bow to all the people who are seeking peace from their heart. If it is superficial, then I can not help. But when we realize that all these wars have brought such a calamity on your nation and all the nations concerned, we should now really think seriously about peace.

Please be seated. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that Truth is what it is.

Diwali Puja. Moscow (Russia), 12 November 1993.
It is so very gratifying to see so many people from all over the world have come to Russia to worship the Goddess Lakshmi. When you cannot explain everything intellectually then you take course to arts to express yourself; and then you take to symbols to express what you cannot say verbally or cannot express rationally. This is what an artist does, also a poet does that he extends his imagination to such an extent that he creates a symbol. […]
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know the truth is what it is. We cannot cheat it and we cannot conceptualize it.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot transform it, we cannot conceptualise it.

Public Program “Spiritual Traditions” Paris (France), 12 July 1993.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it, we cannot change it, we cannot transform it. We have to feel the truth. At this human level, we do not know the absolute truth, that’s why there are all kinds of different opinions about everything. Absolute truth is for everyone the same. […]
