way, it is ignorance and foolishness to search for the
self-effulgent, omnipresent Atma using other forms
of knowledge. No one tries to search for himself in the
world outside. In the same way, when you are the

times, era after era.
Bharat - The Birthplace of Spirituality -
Bharat is the birthplace
of spirituality and dharma. Peace and nonviolence
also took birth in Bharat. The search for truth done in
Bharat has not been done anywhere else. This land is the
birthplace of the Sapta
is the country in which the first poet, Valmîki,
and the classifier of the Vedas,
took birth. This is the supremely sacred land of
dharma in which Lord Krishna taught the
Bhagavad Gîtâ. This is Lord
Râma's kingdom. This is the soil on which Buddha
was born. Bharat has always been replete with minds
enquiring into the truth, hands engaged in dharma
and hearts immersed in the Lord.
Devotion has no
distinctions of caste, age and language. It is easy for
everyone to contemplate on God. God is as essential for
the mind as food is for the body. In the devotion of
Bharatiyas we sometimes find situations bordering on the
absurd. But spiritual feelings and love are the
under-currents even in this seemingly senseless behavior.
A student prays to God to do well in exams. A man prays
to God to win a court case. Why go that far? People pray
even to secure a seat in a bus! In this way, Bharatiyas
depend on God from the smallest to the biggest things.
This may be called divine madness. Some call it
foolishness. Whatever anyone may say, each is entitled to
his own hunger, his own faith, his own kind of madness.
No one has the right to deny another's faith.
But certain foundations
are necessary even for faith. The presence of the groom
doesn't mean that the marriage is done. Having money does
not imply that you can run a business. Some additional
know-how is required. You cannot be considered a writer
by knowing the alphabet. Only one who understands
meanings of words can be an author. Similarly, you cannot
recognize God with worldly knowledge. Spiritual knowledge
is essential. To acquire it, enquire into the
Scientific Investigations into the Truth -
Everyone must understand
the universe and the nature of the individual souls
living in it. Those who recognize the secrets of the
cosmos and of the beings living in it can understand the
nature of divinity. Since ancient times, men of wisdom
have investigated into nature. The astronomer Galileo
discovered many facts about the universe. The earth
revolves at a speed of 18500 miles per second. It circles
the sun once a year. "Who is turning the earth? Why
does it revolve? What is the basis for its
revolution?", asked Galileo. He found that the
parabola is the basis of motion.
If there is such a basis
for even small objects, there must exist a significance
to the earth's movement as well. Once upon a time the
earth was hot. Then it took millions of years to cool
down. Why should the burning planet revolve?
Galileo pondered the answer to this question.
Rotation causes day and night which provide opportunities
for men to undertake action. Revolution produces seasons
which are responsible for rain, harvest and food. Every
act of God, big or small, is for the good for mankind.
There is a hidden power running everything.
Galileo recognized it and called it God.
Therefore, a natural scientist recognized this unchanging
That which is present
always is Truth. Within this truth we find both worldly
and spiritual knowledge. It is not possible for anyone to
know this power through any means. To know the unchanging
power behind nature is to know God -This is what Galileo
Einstein, the father of
modern science, talked about the inter-changeability of
matter and energy. He said that these could neither be
created nor destroyed. But energy may change forms. How?
Magnetic energy can be turned into electricity,
electricity into atomic power, atomic power into light
and light into heat. Students should recognize a small
fact. You can create water by combining hydrogen and
oxygen. But who created hydrogen and oxygen? Water is the
effect, hydrogen and oxygen are the causes. Nothing can
exist without a cause. The effect gradually changes. That
which changes is science. The changeless cause is
Live Human Values -
We say "culture and
spirituality". We came to know this morning that culture
is a "way of life". It means heritage. Spirituality is
necessary for transformation. What is spirituality? We
consider only worship and good actions to be
spirituality. But in truth:
Spirit of Love
Science = Split of Love
"Split of Love" changes
but the "Spirit of Love" is permanent. Culture has love
as its basis. No love means no culture. Culture and
spirituality really mean the power of love. This
changeless power cannot be destroyed. This power could be

with equal certainty.

was silent on the existence of God. He said, "It is a
waste of time to argue about an unknowable subject like
divinity which is beyond the mind". Yatho Vaacho
Nivartante Apraapya Manasaa Sahaa - From where words and
thoughts return, unable to grasp anything - That is
divinity. "For me, sathya, dharma and ahimsa
are equivalent to Brahmâ, Vishnu and
S'iva", he said.
Truth and dharma
are the highest. Follow them and practice ahimsa
in your life. This is true spiritual effort,
Buddha said. There is no God higher than Truth.
For this reason, the Vedas say - Sathyam Vada,
Dharmam Chara - Speak the truth and uphold
righteousness. God is present wherever these are upheld.
Vasishtha said - Ramo Vigrahavaan Dharmah -
Râma is the very embodiment of dharma
- because Râma never spoke a lie and always
stuck to the path of dharma. He walked barefoot in
forests and sacrificed everything for the sake of
righteousness. To uphold a promise given by His father,
He took great burdens upon Himself. Without ever
faltering, Râma adhered unflinchingly to
sathya and dharma. That is why He is the
embodiment of divinity.
Even in this Kali yuga
people went to Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and asked him if
he had seen God. Yes, he replied. In what form, they
asked. Ramakrishna said, "Just as I see you, I have seen
God." When asked how it was possible, he explained, "With
yearning. You strive for wealth and family. You cry for
small and big things. Have you ever cried for God?

With such hypocrisy you can never acquire God.
Invisible Causes and Visible Manifestations -
These days scientists,
atheists and argumentative people demand direct
perception of God. "I must see with my eyes, touch with
my hands and taste with my tongue to believe. How can I
believe in something I cannot see, touch or taste?", they
question. With such arguments scientists deride devotees
as fools. Truly, no one is more foolish than these
Why? An example: You see
a man who is 5'6" tall, weighs 63kg and is bald. These
are all direct perceptions. Are they true? Definitely.
But they are truths only for the external vision. The man
also has qualities like sacrifice, kindness and
determination which cannot be touched or measured. Even
if you cut the man into pieces, these qualities are not
visible! So do you deny their existence? In fact, the man
exists only due to these qualities. The invisible
qualities are the basis for the visible
You say only what is seen
is true, nothing else. You have accumulated past
karma which makes you suffer, but can you see
it? It is foolishness to deny what is not visible
or tangible; You see a tree with branches. Scientists see
the fruits, branches and leaves which are readily
visible. But spirituality perceives the unseen
roots. Without roots how can you have branches? Which is
more important - branches or roots? In the same way, an
invisible force is the foundation for the visible
universe. We see and experience this world only by the
power of that force.
A few more examples. Love
and fragrance have no form but we experience them. Can
they be denied because they are invisible or intangible?
So why do we believe in them? It is because even
invisible entities have visible or tangible
Love has no form
but the Mother, who gives Love, has a form.
Fragrance has no form but the fragrant
Flower has a form.
Bliss has no form but God, whose nature is
bliss, has a form!
Bhaava Roopam - The Form of God -
What is this form of God?
It is unattainable, beyond comprehension. It can be
anything. For example, what is the form of wind or water?
You can see water and feel wind but they have no forms.
When do they acquire forms? When you fill air in a
balloon, it assumes the corresponding form. Water
acquires the form of its container.
In the same way, the
formless God assumes the form cherished by the devotee.
The devotee's feeling itself is the form of God. This has
in our scriptures. To know this form of God, meditation
is recommended. God appears as the embodiment of whatever
feelings the devotee meditates upon. If we think of God
as benevolent, He appears so If we think of Him as
destructive, that is how He appears. So, all forms of God
are dependent on your feeling. It is not possible to
limit divinity as being "this" or "that".

God is everywhere as
energy. This is what scientists call atomic energy. But
even the atom can be sub-divided. There is nothing in
this world without a form. Even Karnataka and Andhra
Pradesh (states in southern India) have forms, seen in a
map. That is why, ancient Hindus worshipped mother earth
as a manifestation of divinity. But modern scientists
ridicule this practice.
question: Earth is just soil and rock, Why pray to
Soil gives us food. The sun causes rain, day and night.
All these are necessary for life. It is our culture to
worship those whose benovelence sustains us. Nothing can
exist without the five elements (dhâtavah) -
earth, water, sky, fire and ether. So what is wrong in
praying to them?
Scientists say: Fine, the five elements are okay.
But why pray to a stone idol? How can it be God?
ancients reply: God
is everywhere! Why not worship Him in the rock?
Scientists argue: But the rock has no
Here students should
realize an important point. On the 15th of August
(independence day of India), we raise our national flag
aloft. We salute it. Why? It is just a piece of cloth,
composed of threads. It has no qualities or awareness. It
flutters with the wind and lies limp in still air. What
virtues of the flag make it worthy of respect? It is a
symbol of independence won after arduous struggle.
Similarly, although divine consciousness is everywhere,
we need signs and symbols to remind us of it.
Atheism simply cannot
exist when we enquire in this manner. Dhanamoolam Idam
Jagat - Today the world revolves around money.
Sometimes when you drop a currency note on the ground by
mistake, you touch it to your eyes as a mark of respect.
Why? The currency is only bamboo and grass pulp; isn't
it? What awareness or individuality does it have? None.
Then why do you honor it? Not just devotees, atheists
also worship money! Do atheists say, "No, thank you, I do
not want money"? No, atheists also desire it! They honor
the seal of the Reserve Bank which makes the paper
valuable. Similarly you display your grandfather's photo
and garland it when he passes away. Does your grandfather
still exist in the photo? No, the photo is only paper
pulp. So why do you respect it? It is his
Yes, this is rock. But
the rock is a symbol of the omnipresent God. The
bhaava-roopam of the devotee is concentrated in
the rock! Thus, Hindus worship not rocks, but God in
rocks, in the earth and in idols. You may ignore some
practices if you wish, but no one has the right to
condemn or weaken another's faith. Each one is entitled
to his own faith. Just as one person's breathing
(shvaasam) cannot be substituted for another
person, one's faith (vishvaasam) is personal
Absolute Truth, Relative Truth and Untruth -
search for the truth is described in the Vedas. What does
it mean to search for the truth? The truth is everywhere,
so it is meaningless to search for it, some argue. An
example. You see your mother, daughter, sister, wife and
mother-in-Iaw with your eyes. The eyes that see are the
same. Now, the feeling used in each case is the "search".
Having eyes is not enough. You must ask yourself, "How do
I look at my mother?" The answer: With motherly feeling.
This is the "search for the truth". Just because the eyes
are one and the same, can you look upon everyone with the
vision is the same but the underlying feelings are
different. In the same way, all our senses are one but
each has its own faculties and limits. The search for the
truth means discriminating between what is satyam
(truth), nijam (relative truth or fact) and asatyam
the difference between a relative truth and the truth?
There is a vast difference. Students, you know the earth
is a globe. But the ground near your house is flat. The
flatness is relative truth - That is how you see it. But
when you search for the truth, it turns out to be a
globe. So, a relative truth is really an untruth
perceived to be the truth. You see a man wearing a suit.
That is today's truth. Tomorrow he might wear a dhoti
(traditional Indian dress for men). What is present today
but absent tomorrow is relative truth. The unchanging
truth is ever true - That is Divinity.
is opposed to both truth and relative truth. What is
untruth? To see something and say otherwise is falsehood.
In darkness you see a rope and call it a snake. That is
delusion born of improper discrimination. You jumped to a
conclusion. Shine a torch and you will realize it is a
rope. To consider the rope as a snake is illusion.

manner, spirituality conceals many subtle secrets. This
has been called satya rahasyam - Secret
of truth. Why should the truth be called "secret"?
Because it is veiled to the unripe intellect and must be
churned from effort.

prove these truths in a beautiful manner.
See God Through Love -
Scientists have also come
across divine power in their experiments. They
acknowledge the existence of a changeless power without
calling it "God". Whatever name they may use, they cannot
change the substance. There is water in this tumbler. The
Telugu man calls it neeru, the Tamil man says
tanni, the Hindi man calls it paani and the
Englishman, water. The names change, not the water.
People also worship God in countless names and forms
depending on their personal attitudes. But only one God
The world cannot exist
without God. You say that this cloth is a collection of
threads which, in turn, are nothing but cotton. But the
cloth, threads and cotton are one and the same. Apply
such logic in spiritual enquiry as well.
But to believe blindly
without enquiry is also great devotion because it is born
of total faith. The infant places unquestionable faith in
the mother and believes whatever the mother says. This
cannot be called foolishness. Even Jesus said, "How happy
I would be if I could be an innocent child for a moment
every day!" Meaning, we must have the innocence of
infants. We should not nurture manipulation, deceit and
secrecy. With straightforwardness, we achieve purity, and
truth is present within purity. But today, staying aloof
from such purity, we trust that polluted conduct pays.
Do not entertain frivolous talk and shallow opinions in
matters concerning divinity. What scientists know today
is close to nothing. You must understand this well.
Knowledge is small but the exhibition is gargantuan.
Those who know the truth are calm and silent. The pot

company manufactures and supplies Love. The only machine
that generates love is within us - the heart. Heart is
called hridaya. That which is full of compassion
(daya) alone is a hridaya. But modem hearts
are stones, with no traces of kindness. Such hearts
cannot be called human hearts. No, no. God is the
resident of the heart. A heart with compassion is the
temple of God. Develop compassion and you will perceive
God in your heart. If we look only outside, we are

A small example. Someone
is singing in a radio station in Delhi. When we power the
radio here, we hear that song. So is it present
everywhere or not? Radio waves are present everywhere.
They are manifestations of divine power, as are magnetic
energy, atomic energy, light and heat.
Following such enquiry,
we realize that God's creation has endless secrets. In
Bharat alone there are 900 million people. The
world has 5.8 billion people. It was 5 billion some time
ago but now it has grown by 800 million. With growth in
population, there is growth in sin as well. Now, among
these millions, are any two persons identical? Who can
understand such mysteries? Even among twins there are
differences. They are not made from a moulding. Only God
could create such a wonderful cosmos.

of God are beyond comprehension. No one can understand

different. The value of each object is also different.
But the value of silver is the same, whether in the

are attitudes based on the behavior of these persons. But
the atma principle is one.
Do Your Duty -

so, has no value. But gold has great value. Why? It is
difficult to obtain. In the same way, a man with a pure
heart is given great respect. His actions carry weight. A
happy life and good reputation depend on your actions,
nothing else. To scale the heights of greatness we must
engage in sacred deeds. Human life is indeed very
valuable. The first student speaker taday told you: "Men
are more valuable than all the wealth of the world". Who
gives value to gold and diamonds? Man alone. Why do you
pay huge amount of money for a tiny plot of land in the
city? Only because that's the value given to it by man.
Unfortunately, the man who values everything does not
value himself today! This is because human values are

no value. Everyone has a body composed of the five
elements. The body becomes meaningful only when
sanctified with noble actions and ideals. For example, a
glass jar can preserve savories and pickles for many
months. But if you eat these pickles, they cannot be
preserved by the body even for a few hours! So the glass
jar is much better than this body!
Remember: Your respect in
society depends not on looks, personality or wealth, but
only on behavior. If you adhere to virtue, you are
automatically honored. You do not need to ask for

his life trying to save Sîtâ
Devî. Even in his last moments, Jatâyu
worried only about Râma's troubles. As
a result, Râma rested Jatâyu on
His thigh and performed his funeral rites like a son.
Many sages begged
Râma for favors and waited for Him in their
hermitages. Instead of rewarding them, Râma
chose to go to Sabari. Sabari didn't ask

said, "It seems your intellect has really blossomed

Who would look at him if
he went to give darshan? [laughter] But if
faith is deep, God will definitely appear through you as
well. People only talk without practising. "The proper
