Doctor’s conference at AIIMS, New Delhi (India). 2 April 2002.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Speaking before the doctors I think of My college days, while I was also studying medicine but luckily or unluckily our college stopped completely, in Lahore and I had to give up My studies.

Expression of Subtle Elements New Delhi (India)

“Expression of Five Elements on a Sahaja Yogi”. Delhi (India), 16 December 1998.

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. […]

Anybody
can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from
death. Death itself died and He overcame
it.

Today it’s a great day for us, for all the Sahaj Yogis, that on this day – I would say, we are late by one day, or two days – the Sahasrara was opened out.
