Fear and Courage

We are afraid of God. God’s infinite Vastness frightens us. God’s transcendental Height frightens us. God’s immeasurable Depth frightens us. God is both Truth and Light. God the Truth tries to lead us to the perfect Truth. But we unfortunately feel that God the Truth is always examining us. We feel that since we are […]

Self Transcendence

Dear sisters and brothers, dear seekers of the highest Transcendental Truth, I wish to give a short talk on self transcendence. We are all seekers who wish to transcend our present realities. Why do we want to transcend? We want to transcend because the life of ignorance, bondage, imperfection and death cannot satisfy us. We […]

Sorrow and Joy

I wish to give a short talk on sorrow and joy. Sorrow is an inner experience. From this experience we come to feel that life has no meaning and no purpose, that we are travelling along a road that has no goal. Joy is also an inner experience. From this experience we come to feel […]

Failure

It is said that the lecturer stands up, speaks up and shuts up. Here the seeker in me is standing up in order to offer his divine love to the audience. The seeker in me is speaking up in order to establish spiritual oneness with the audience. And finally, the seeker in me will shut […]

Curiosity or Necessity

I am extremely happy, fortunate and proud to be here this evening in your midst. I shall be in the British Isles for about a month. If I go back to New York. where I live, without paying my respectful homage to Wales, it will be the summit of my folly and ignorance. I understand […]

Capacity

Dear sisters and brothers, dear seekers of the highest Truth, I wish to give a short talk on capacity. Capacity is something that everybody is familiar with; it is not something new to any human being. God grants us capacity the moment we take human birth. In fact, the soul is inundated with capacity in […]

Here at this august university you have been devotedly studying to cultivate knowledge. Today you will learn something about a subject diametrically opposite, ignorance. Each man has […]
