Onc Saint prays. So body is the true templc of God. the spiritual way. God makes an arrangement to bring thosc who have got a real yearning to search for this ideal.

And one more thing: If such food is preparcd this way. "My head aches. If he is kept on meat. All Masters have referred to it. look to your stomach. there can be no sickness." Then another man came the same day and said. So we must have honest earning. such a man alone can know C o d . There was one Maharishi Shivbrat Lal. and those who prepare the food have been in the sweet remembrance of God. waiting on the table.. H e went to Prophet Mohammed and said. So it is a satvic [i. T o be dependent on others is a heinous crime. so there is no need of my being here. And even if we take that kind of diet." "Well. Otherwise many evil thoughts will creep up in you. you see. chaste t h o u ~ h t s ." H e said. Soul is of the same essence as that of God. we have got that dishonesty creeping up within ourselves. that will have its effect. so long as they d o what 1 have ordered: have a good character. We should have n o hatred for anybody. is yours. outer and inner construction is the same. nobody has been sick. "Well. "I cannot sit in meditation. richness o r poorness-all these things depend on . Second thing: God has given rightsequal rights-to everybody. You better go. "Look to your stomach. Higher position o r lower position. etc. "My mind wanders away. It should not be blood squeezed from others. Don't usurp the rights of others. but if you eat too much. my mind rebels. whatever we eat and drink has its own effect. so that if any- body went sick. One may be standing. The doctor remained with the party for six months.e. and by whom it is served. What is yours. One man came to him and said. all evils creep in. we have to watch the hands through which the food passes: by whom it is cooked." H e said. then what is the result? Diet which is digested will give you strength. another one is sitting in the chair. He who earns his money in the honest wuy and shares with others. who had about forty followers with him at one time. then you will find some rest-some peace. Eat one morsel less than you need. and God also resides in everybody. what is others is for the others. and somebody attached a doctor to him. "Look to your stomach. strict vegetarian] diet that we have to take. This is due to as we have sown. I have been here six months. If a dog is kept on vegetable food. All these things affect the man who eats it. And we are ensouled bodies. so we have reaped. and hard work. with chaste thoughts-then you will find that when you eat. more than what is wanted." So this is the first elementary thing which stands as an impediment on the Way you have been put on." Then another man said. I cannot sit in meditation for long. naturally. There was an incident with the Prophet Mohammed. that will give you calmness within. that is the first thing required." The Prophet said. but nobody got sick.. he might be treated then and there. it is better that Y o u take m y soul from the body. that which is not digested? So diet has a great effect. "Yes. That diet also carries the effect of those through whose hands the food has been prepared and served. Guru Nanak said. If money is earned by honest means.ers. and take one morsel less than they really need. he is very amiable. Whatever money we receive through dishonest means. If the food is earned by honest means. that is the first step." So our earnings should be honest. he will be howling and growling. We are born the same way. Further.

I forgive". If you rcmember somebody who has done this wrong or that wrong. you should go o n reciting some scripture or have the sweet remembrance of God. So as I told you. I think I mentioned to you that when 1 was a military accounts officer attached to a regiment in the field. Others d o not know. If anybody has done anything wrong to you. Sometimes people say. just see how far we have gone. a mother would not let anyone enter thc kitchen when she was preparing the food. We are all brothers and sisters in God. little things affect them. who was it in your kitchen today?" H e said. he has done that"-that also poisons the mind and affects you. Forgive and forget." You hate others for these reasons: because you are very rich. men are not of the same stature. This hatred of the heart affccts your mind. The third thing was. if an ounce is added. If a child has done anything wrong. your whole body is poisoned from head down to foot. you see. The fourth thing is chastity: of thought." These are the little little things that affect the reservoir of our subconscious mind. you say. Humility is the only remedy for that. The third thing is: Forgive and forget. you know. "I a m in power. as I told you. "All right. look here: So long as you are in the kitchen. Forget all. Why don't we notice these things? Because we are already so filthy. But those who have got no filth." Or. because you are vcry learned. we don't notice. "Well. Sometimes a man thinks. on account of our being rich o r learned o r a man of position o r a man of possessions. cooked by. then how d o you t h h k the God within you will receive you? So we are all equal. you te think of them. d o you not Forgive? And one thing. "No. And they react. there was. 1 called that man-at night: "Well. No other thought should enter your mind. O n the fourth day I was sitting in meditation at about 12 o r 1 in the night. one orderly was given to me to cook my food. because you are a man of position. Make him understand politely. that they are not fit for our society. we hate others. The second thing was. then naturally that element of your retribution won't go. try to understand what he says. You are on the watch-"when can I retallate?" Forgive and forget. Even if any ~ ~ n c h n s thoughts enter your mind. and a college man is there. you see: Each man has to work at his own level. nobody entered there. we were talking about such-and-such. again and again the thought goes on-"he has done that. SO 1 told him. sir. "All right. "I am a very learned man. word and deed. but once it has been done. Suppose a man with a primary grades education is there. come on. "Yes. something was wrong 1 at in my mind. I know much better. Can you expect the primary man to talk up to the levcl of the college man? Make some allowance. we are all equal. and pure diet passed through." Well.'. people of good character in sweet remembrance of God. In the old days. If you don't forget. one thing is honest earning.that. you see. then-forget. "Oh. After all." H e said. If you hate them. . So these are the first things. served by. nobody was there. Generally we feel. We think they are not men of our own status." "Don't lie!" Then he said. for three days he obeyed. I am giving you practical difficulties. "We d o not d o anything. one gram affects them. each man works according to his own level of thinking or development. but you have not forgiven at heart.

let's see . whenever they are wanted. "Is it in your country that they beat women?" The result was. Chastity in itself is a blessing. whenever you sit. o r thinking that the other man. "this is no good. If you are always thinking. and to help each other to know God. in weal o r woe. whether it is done in a frivolous way. that said that some missionaries went to Japan and preached one commandment of Moses : Don't strike your woman. That is the main thing.I. He will look after it." But don't broadcast it like a plague rabbit. married life in accordance with the scriptures is no bar to spirituality. or any enmity." but privately. don't drink. you will progress wonderfully. I tell you. you see. so it is sown. he 1s bad. of God. unchaste thoughts. each thought has its own color and its own fragrance. then that will affect your stomach. So for that reason.") "He is like that-he is like that-he is like that"you are always looking after that. So what is wanted is chastity of everything-eyes. those who keep it. God has given you a companion to help each other on the earthly sojourn. And that chastity has its own thought by radiation.I. foremost preachers in society. And for the ears: don't hear anything evil about othersbecause a little thought comes to you. As I told you. I have seen men. As you sow. "Don't drink. but drinking is also there. they do drink.D. I read a book once when I was in school. and we begin to doubt that man about which we have heard. If you have got any friend who is clearly doing something wrong. hc is no good. God is there too. But he may be all right. "Don't drink. Sometimes we say. ears. The people were leading very innocent lives. are they not? Maybe the word "don't" is there." means "Confidential Investigation Department. Then you say. you will become fond of it. But those very things affect you. It is companionship. a sacrament. he m bud. you see. In these little little things. "all right. every thought has its effect. tongue-skin also. 1 have love for you. don't think evil of anybody: because as you think. "it is very delicious". As I explained to you the other day. you may tell him privately. we receive infection from others. "You know how wonderful 1 am?" If you want. So for this reason. politely. don't drink" and all the time they are thinking of drinking. So there is chastity of eyes: Don't look to others with lustful thoughts o r any rancor rankling in your mind. So a life of self-restraint is a blessing. they will feel blessings in their body. don't spoil your life. they began to beat women. after a year's preaching. who preach. they asked.we simply enjoyv-they are talking of suchlike things. This is the fourth thing: Where there is chastity. let others say you are wonderful.D. s o beware! Thoughts are very potent. don't believe anything anyone tells you--"I have heard" or "I have seenw-unless you hear for your own self with your ears and see with your own eyes. ("c. all virtues will find an abode in you. Out of the abundance oj his heart a man speaks. These things are based on what is lying in the depths of your hearts. Then the fifth thing is: Don't work as the unpaid apprentices of the C. not a contract. you will think. I have seen. your mind will be at rest. Then comes chastity of tongue: Anything which is not of satvic character. I am telling you. and that awakens doubt. for enjoyment's sakeit affects. you will get infected with that. so you beconle. And then for begetting children. going around everywhere.

can you d o anything wrong? No. What your heart mcans. I f you are the head of a department. love your subordinates. then you will fear nothing in the world. When you arc at work. whether high o r low. you see. Then you will go to bed quite buoyant and fresh. under you. but they carry great meaning-they provide you .two hours. So have reverence for all. These are the things that aftcct us. Man is next to God. one thing more: Man is the highest in all creation. reverence for all who are around you. these are simple words. you see? Thesc are very little things that will help us. and reverence for all who are bcneath you. superior officers are only pleased if you have turned out more work-it may be at the sacrifice of those working under you." Do we think like that? Jf you think somebody is watching you. excuse me. "1 must attend to this and that thing". usurping others' rights. All creation has been made subservient to you. be fully occupied in work: Work is worship. why? Because he is afraid the secret will be out. Otherwise. Take care. So when you are at your practice. all are lower than you are-animals. he will have to tell lies. the Master Power is within you. others d o see it. then that is true. excuse me. Then you will find. But a secret is nevcr a secret! The cat must be out of the bag. And one more thing: Be true to your own self. o r below you. reptiles. "Look hcre: now 1 am residing within you. and awake the same way. be fully at practice. let your brain think and your mouth say. above you. And you must have reverence for all. So the man who betrays his own Self. Why? I treated them alike as brothers-reverence for them. If your attention is in eating. So you are the head of all creation. three hours. that eating will give you good results. So be true to your own Self. When you eat. because that is a gift from God. These are the practical things which help us. Then we say something. T o keep one thing secret he has to tell hundreds of lies. We deceive our own self first. but o f themselves. because at heart of hearts he is in fear. When 1 was in office. When Baba Jaimal Singh initiated somebody. you don't know how much you have eaten. God resides in every body. birds. our younger brothers in the family of God. he used to say. 1 am looking after you now. Thank God. Keep your mind occupied always. All are our brothers. In my case. but your thought is somewhere else. When these three agree. And they turned out twice the amount of thc work which others did-and quictly and friendly. and he will talk to another. is not true to his own Self. The laws of Nature you are controlling. whether they are round you. God is within you. Now. be fully in your eating. The man who is not true to himself. above you. thcy are after the subordinates. Wunted: Reformers-not of others. Then you worry. H e will speak to one man a few words. So be true to your own Self. If you don't watch it. Sometimes you have taken the morsel. I was a superintendent. So as I have told you. then we deceive others: telling lies. 1 am telling you what constructive things help us. he has to tell hundreds of lies. after a month o r two the whole statement will change. the work which is left incomplete is hovering in your mind throughout the night. the subordinates were pleased and the officers wcre also pleased. but we mean something else. have reverence for all who are over you. next to God: great is man.

and to know God. not to his own self only. and will put before you. Forget the future-"we'll d o this. And when you will sit. We spend thousands of dollars for the outer cleanliness. But outside they are not so clean as inside. This is the temple of God. Do you remember to d o that? Be very much on guard. as I submitted earlier. Seeing is not bad. If you think evil of others. and a man is one who is of service to others. you will be wide awake. Whatever thought comes up. that has its own color. that's all. what difference does it make? But those who are pure in heart. But this body-we keep it clean outside but not inslde. too. but what about the inside? It is mind that defiles the whole thing. torment others and you will be tormented. we are all reading in one class to pass the same examination: to control our mind. So thesc are the things which help us. its own odor. one o r two pounds added to it. naturally. thoughts are very potent. knowledge means what? Fellowship. well d o thatw-like that. Think twice! What should you think? One: Is it necessary to say anything? Two: How will it affect others? Is it in their interest or will it hurt them? Is it good? Is it necessary to say something? If not. we all go together. Outer temples. which are the models of the man body. you will be buoyant and fresh. we keep clean and tidy. That will help your health. then it is full of perfume. so you become. silken clothes. Guard your outgoing faculties. And what effect will they carry. you see: as you think. So knowledge means what? Knowledge means service. so shcrll you reap. We are all brothers and sisters in God. that building will come up. Mind your own business. Not that you should wear rich clothes. that must be reaped. guard your tongue. Karma is very exorbitant. the whole room becomes full of that odor. Smile and the world will smile with you. And ultimately you will learn humility. your words? These are the two things. outer beauty. Sometimes we become bosses. But even a very frivolous thought carries its effect. we use any language we like. little little things will affect them. you may have a lesson from that. One is: Cleunliness is next to Codlinesv. I would say. These are two spikes. then you see the whole world in that color. that's the pity. Body is the temple of God-keep it clean and tidy.with greatness of culture. That doesn't cost anything. When you wear spectacles of a certain color. there are two o r three more constructive things which I have found. but inside too. Kind words imbued with humility. Then further. Live in the living present. If a filthy cloth with a bad odor is lying in a room. that affects others. that cannot be mended. others will think evil of you. So live in the living pres- 10 . but keep it tidy. Last of all. Eyes are the windows of the soul. Think twice before you speak. And not only cleanliness outside. guard your ears. I tell you. What has happened already. Whatever stones you lay. Another thing: Forger the past and forget the future. keep quiet. As you ow. What you have sown already. is it not? Why d o we not find this? Because we are already filled with lies and filth. For meditation o r any work. to know our higher Self. valuable clothes. eating into the veins of our lives. If flowers are put in the room. and by radiation. but seeing something wrong is bad. I would say. God resides in every heart. you see: Guard your eyes. The remedy for these things is usually: Kind words imbued with hrrmility.

It may cost you a day. it was decided: "God first. wind up the watch of your mind. This is your right as man because you have got discrimination. That will give you freshness. these are the things that we don't observe. Man can change.your mind will be free. Not animals. they put their whole attention on the body. vigor. Thank God we have what we have. they are no new things. Soul has great curative power. And at night before going to sleep also: wind up the watch. So we arc aimlessly adrift. You will be fresh every day. the Water of Life and Bread of Life will give strength to your soul. your outgoing faculties. you are fresh. wind your watch daily. These are thc constructive things that will help you. d o you not? Then it goes for 24 hours-going on. you see: your mind. there. So as I told you. Those seeds were sown by your own self in the past. quietly. finish it. because that is the Bread of Life and the Water of Life. to work with all through the day. I have also put before you. and water nowhere. You will get strength. you see? But with them we can make our life sublime. you wind it up every morning. you see. that attention gives them strength. by sowing the seeds thereof. Come in contact with the Light and Sound within." Then everything goes in a constructive way to help you. Some go one foot ahead. Then you will get strength. When I entered the world. These are little little things we have never cared for. but still. you see. and we are still earning. We follow with eyes closed.1 of food and drink water. Where does that strength come frcm? Strength from the food comes only after it is digested. all other things get strength. And when the soul is strong. Once you have decided. Sit and devote time to your practices. which stand as impediments on the way.c. So do your best and leave the rest to God overhead. some six feet deep. of course. world next. not brooding over anything? Then wind your watch daily every morning. three days. you take :I mols. then go back. etc. Animals can also be very helpful when you train them. but man is free. But there should be some ideal before us. some seven feet deep. We are adrift-aimlessly adrift-that's the pity. So 1 submit to each one of you S ~ that you I ~ L I decide your aim. Whether you are happy with whatever comes up o r not. everywheresome five feet deep. going on-with no interruption.ent. what 1 have submitted. One example 1 may submit to you ( y ~ u may have seen this point): When you are vzry tired and hungry. You ure soul. when you are set. then go back. seven days. dear friends. your body also. you get strength. strength. But these things I have spoken of. not all at once. Well. that takes time. You may have too much to do. you will be quite buoyant and fresh. But I had to decide. . I would say: headlong down without caring what the result will be. So every morning. Great is man.You will have no burdens. then you are going step by step to your goal. never mind. You are sons of God. And one thing more 1 will tell you: If you have got a watch. and with the grace of God. Now our mind is overburdened with thoughts of the past and of the future-what we will do. It is your soul-your own Self. We dig pits here. I had great ambition also: ambition of life. The other things. then go ahead. We have earned it. wilhin certain limits. about which you d o not know. You will find that when wrestlers d o exercises. does i t appeal to you? Do you want to be fresh and buoyant.

And thanks to those who are crusading with me. A t the Disneyland Hotel. So you are all children of God. working as a result of the greatness of our Master. you are fortunate to see me. more able. What will you get if you reform your own self? Godhead-which is your hereditary right. So remain in contact. Am I not more fortunate? So love beautifies everything. OPPOSITE : SO don't give food to your body until you give food to your . it is His grace that is working. they are my disciples. This is why it is said. don't be led away by what you hear outside. than himself. all credit goes to Him. So these are my few words. but my thoughts are with you. and given something to start with. to enable you to progress on the Way. because I am going round as my Master wishes-the God in him. You are very fortunate. and inner too-in the spiritual Way. This is all I have to say. in the month of Sawan it always rains-and generally. These are the helping factors. and some constructive things which will help you-in all your affairs of life. you see. Baba Sawan Singh. True living is above Truth. ever since I have come it has been raining. I may not be physically with you. Why not wind up daily? Come in contact with that-and that is the Bread of Life and the Water of Life that has fortunately been given to you. even if we do something. . God will bless you all. Ultimately. and these are the impediments on the way. Remain in contact. and extending all feasible help and assistance and protection. I have put before you in a few words. Those who f o l l o ~ ~ words. Truth is above all and true living is still above Truth. A nuheim. That Power within you will be helping you and extending all protection. And you should progress from day to day. the rains come first. California. wind up your watch. they are my disciples. You know it is raining outside. conveying this message to the people at large. You are more fortunate-those who have been put on the way-than others in the world. you see.So these are some of the impediments on the Way. That is His grace working. I wish you all to become ambassadors-better than me. Because you have seen only one. but I have seen all of you. but I am more fortunate than you. So every day morning. It is His work: credit goes to God and to our Master. These little little things make men great. unless you hear for your own self or see with your own eyes. Tomorrow I will be leaving physically---only. children are always dear to the Father. What little 1 have come to know. That Christ Power o r God Power is always in you. working always for your best interests. Tomorrow I might be leaving physically.roul-first thing. Remain in contact. So please-you have been put on the Way with the grace of God. The word Sawan means the rainy month. Christ said. We care little about the true life. go by what I have given you in these few words. That is all I can say. And. So. "Taking cross" means rising above body consciousness. wherever 1 go. it does not give us full fruit. too. You are all dear to the God who is also residing within us. that you have been put on the Way. you must go by these things. my those who take cross daily. outside. I would say. greatness lies with that which you have been put on. You are dear to me as well. make it a point. Every father wants his children to be more competent.
