I bow to all the seekers of truth. 

So far we have heard so much about the truth. All the great prophets, seers and incarnations have taught that the truth can be only realized if you are born again. This happening as people have put before us has been a very artificial one. Just by having a concept or a belief that you are born again you cannot become that. […]

 I bow to all the seekers of truth. As I said yesterday the seekers of truth are a special category of people in the evolutionary process of human beings.
