Today is Easter and all of you celebrate it. It’s rather surprising, you see, there are people believing in science and everything, these days they offer you an egg.

Public Program, day 1 Jehangir Hall, Mumbai 23-03-1973

Shri Mataji: For example, if you discuss with a medical doctor, he will not be able to tell you what is a libido, which is the basis of many psychological findings. If you ask the psychologist, he may not be able to tell you what are the symptoms of the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system.

Then, “yogashastri” (yoga experts) are regarded as something out of place. Perhaps we have never realised that all these knowledge springs from one source, […]
