I’m sorry I spoke in Hindi language, because to talk about My father in any other language is very difficult, though he was a master of English language and he used to read a lot.

New Year’s eve Puja (English part). Kalve (India), 31 December 1998.
Firstly I will speak in English language as we have many Sahaja Yogis from abroad.

Now as it is for the people who are coming from other countries, […]

I have been telling them that the style of Indian knowledge is very different from the Western mind. In the West, you see, if you say something, then they want to have an experimental approval. They will go to the scientists or to other people who are equipped with knowledge to know what they said in these books is true or not. They will even judge Christ. […]
