Everyone should forget
nationality: we are one here. This is a universal family. Have no idea
of separation of identity: discard feelings of separateness, serve people
with mind, body, wealth, and knowledge.
We are all equal, despite
the country we come from, and national differences should be ignored.
We are all a unity.
Work as a unit; there is no
caste or creed here; there are no differences.
Babaji blesses all who do their duty sincerely and with devotion.
Do your duty lovingly.
Whenever the world faces grave problems, the Lord takes human
incarnation and comes to fulfill the needs and desires of mankind. However,
when the Lord comes in human form, few recognize Him. Only those to
whom the Lord wishes to reveal Himself realize that He is in fact more
than just a normal human.
You may think that Babaji
just sits here doing nothing. But He has been everywhere and is everywhere
and is doing much. Babaji sitting here is still present in the hearts
of everyone in the world.
Those physically distant from here should not think they are
far away - they are equally close to Me.
I do not recognize castes and races. I behold only one humanity.
I am working for mankind while here.
Kindle the light in yourself, then kindle it in others. Like
spreading light by lightning one candle from another all around a room,
so we should spread love from heart to heart.
If you are worthy, I shall show you freedom greater than you
have ever dreamed about.
To become strong does not mean to become harsh and heartless.
To become strong means to grow beyond pleasure and pain, beyond heat
There are many doctrines. Adhere to one principle - that of Truth,
Simplicity, and Love. Live in truth, simplicity, and love and practice
I have come to guide humanity to a higher Path. I do not belong
to any particular religion, but respect all religions. I seek the elevation
of all mankind.
The result of hard work is happiness and the result of laziness
I want you to become brave warriors and attend carefully to your
own duties. This is good for you.
Now change on a vast scale, such as at the time of the Mahabharata,
will take place.
Do not fall back in your work, but go on. Karma yoga is your
Every moment, in each breath, while eating, sleeping and working,
remember the Lord.
Even the Sun and the Moon can move from their course, but the
faith of a devotee should not be shaken. Never be moved by false doctrines.
While your minds and hearts are impure, how can God live in your
hearts? The water to clean the heart is the name of God. So, teach everyone
to repeat the name of God - everywhere.
I do not want idle people. Japa does not take the place of karma.
Japa and work go together.
I do not want japa to be a pretext for idleness. Do japa with
your work and be liberated.
Work and be the Light; repeat God's name. With a concentrated
mind always repeat God's name.
Attachment to material things makes man cling to life. While
you are attached to life and afraid of death, you die with that fear
and that weight clinging to you. If you die without fear and remembering
the name of God, then the soul leaves the body free of that fear and
attachment. If you are reborn, your soul is still free from that fear.
If you die in Unity, you are free from rebirth, unless you will it.
We must always have good thoughts for each other.
All of you must be happy and healthy and appreciate the joy of
The seeds of righteousness have been sown in your hearts for
you to kindle the hearts of others. I seek the general good of all people
in the world.
You must do all work to perfect humanity. All people will be
saved if kindness and mercy will prevail. You must work to elevate humanity
and eradicate pride, jealousy, and hatred. Unite in love to elevate
yourselves. Each one of you must vow today to sacrifice everything to
obtain (such) oneness.
Be rid of attachment. Be prepared to burn your very bones, if
necessary, to secure the public good and righteousness.
Why do you attach your minds to the transitory things in this
world? Attach yourself to God!
Remove hatred and jealousy from the heart. The same thing has
been spoken through Christ. Where there is jealousy and hatred, there
is no religion.
I dislike idleness and gossiping. You have taken this birth on
the Earth to work. Work hard! After death, what will you show to God?
Not only here, but wherever you are, work hard!
Don't use intoxicating drugs, but learn devotion and purity.
It is strictly forbidden to use drugs and you must leave if you do so,
because there is no progress; you remain the same.
All of you must learn to be disciplined. Be alert 24 hours a
day. All must vow to always work and serve, think good and do good.
According to My plan, Liberation will come only to those who
practice karma yoga.
Whatever money comes to you, spend it for good purposes.
I say all this in the service of humanity. To work, think good,
and dedicate your life to humanity is the best. Each corner of the world
must awaken to these words.
Only hard work can make person powerful and energetic.
Think good! - Be good! - Do good! One can follow any religion,
one can follow any practice or path, but one must be humane.
You should sing devotional music in a way that stirs the soul
- it should evoke deep feelings. You should sing with love. Do not sing
like you are taking part in a theatrical performance. When you make
music, it should touch the heart so that it leaves a memory on the mind.
When you sing, you and those who listen to the kirtan6 should enjoy
it. It (kirtan) should be sung in harmony, with a slow rhythm. Put the
soul into it and it will flow. The melody should flow in all its sweetness.
Think of the Earth as of a Mother. This is one Earth. Don't be
divided by thinking of yourselves as belonging to different countries.
We belong to one Earth. Look to the future with a vision of good deeds
for the whole world, not just one country.
When human beings come in this world, they forget their duty
and they fall into the attachment of maya and into the concepts of "me"
and "mine" and so they forget God.
Jealousy and hatred are the two causes by which humanity is ruined.
In your lives these two vices should have no place.
I am against non-violence that makes a human being a coward.
Fight for Truth! To face life, you must have great courage every day.
Everyone must be courageous, facing the difficulties of life
with bravery. Cowardly people are like dead people.
I want to create a world of brave people who face life as it
Keeping this basic principle in mind, our main duty should be
to spread the Message of karma yoga in the world, we ourselves giving
an example to all, by practicing it.
Service to humanity is the best service to God. Our motto is
"work is worship".
The only way to obtain siddhis, to become really strong, is karma
If you learn right action, you can do anything. Action is Mahayoga
- the Highest yoga. You should progress through action. Man is meant
Go on working while repeating God's name.
The main order of Mahaprabhuji is that you must be punctual in
all your duties, always.
There are many kinds of yoga, but karma yoga is of supreme importance.
Karma yoga must come first, then others types of yoga can be added.
The great people who lived in the past thrived by doing karma
Karma yoga teaches you to lead a true life. Only karma yoga is
able to transform the world. Inaction is the cause of pain and all troubles.
Train your children in karma yoga, that they may become people
of good and strong character.
Therefore, take care of the body. As long as the body is in good
health, you can serve. When you are sick, how can you serve? It is very
important to have good health. In order to do karma, it is vital to
keep your body healthy. So, follow these teachings about cleanliness
and health and teach others, also.
So, all of you have to go beyond the fear of death and the hope
of life and go on doing karma yoga. We must perform those actions which
will benefit others - and not only other people, but the whole of Creation.
Shri Mahaprabhuji wants the creation of very brave and courageous
people in the world. If, with full faith and devotion to God and with
a firm determination, people follow the Path of Truth, Simplicity, and
Love with karma yoga, they will reach their goal. When the whole world
is burning with the fire of sins and sorrows and the flames are about
to swallow the world, this is the only way by which humanity can be
There is no place for fear; people must work fearlessly in the
world. When man is fearless, no one can stand against him in battle
- either a battle in material life or in spiritual life. He is victorious
in all the battles of life.
Mahaprabhuji has control over the "god of death".
Mahaprabhuji can create many worlds and can destroy many creations
at His will. If you are His devotee or disciple, why should there be
any fear in you? You should not worry at all. Be fearless!
Now Babaji is suggesting another point - that we must annihilate
the feelings of "I-ness" and "my-ness" from our
minds. When you all belong to this whole universe, where is the place
for "I" and "mine?" By this means only will the
world be benefited. This is not the concern of one individual but that
of the whole universe.
Everyone must remove the differences between themselves and others
and work in the world in unity.
There is only one way for mankind to be saved and that is by
changing the hearts of all people. Shri Mahaprabhuji will give His full
spiritual power to this, but every man and woman will also have to make
their best efforts toward this end.
In every way, in every manner possible, do good to others and
make them happy. To each individual and to every country, provide what
If you are engaged in doing good deeds and go on doing good acts,
you will have good sleep, good appetite and bad thoughts will not cross
your mind. Otherwise, you will always be criticizing others.
The food which we eat must be clean and nutritious. We should
pay special attention to everyone's health. Wherever there are centers,
people should try to grow and cook good vegetables and make halvah and
distribute them to others. Food should be nutritious so your strength
for working will increase and your minds will be strong, too. It is
necessary to keep the body in good health in order to do good karma.
If the body is not strong, how will you work? We should eat nutritious
food so our bodies become energetic and our brains work better.
I want a Creation of strong and healthy people. I want people
in this Creation to be as fast in their actions as the wind. I want
people who work with all their bodily energies. At this time, the world
needs such brave, strong people.
We must follow a path, which will strengthen us. How can that
be done? It can only be done when you are hard working and active. That
is why it is very essential to be active and hard working. See Babaji
here, Who is working from morning until evening like a machine.
We must depend on ourselves and not lay our burden on others.
No one should cease the practice of karma yoga. This is the eternal,
The fact is, a great fire of sins and sorrows is burning throughout
the world. Everyone living walks and works through this fire. Death
is dancing before everyone's eyes.
The calamities, which are coming to this world, are unavoidable.
Only he who has a strong determination to do good acts and who is strongly
devoted to God can survive this destruction.
Only he who has surrendered completely at the feet of God is
You should not do anything, which will do harm to others. Only
that work which benefits the majority of people is truly called karma
I tell you that you must all spend your time and energy working
for the good of the entire universe. Only by doing this will you be
benefited. Whatever we do, we will to do, must be based on the universal
You must all step together and form a great international organization
- bigger than anything organized in the history of the world.
We must advance for the sake of upliftment of humanity.
We have to go beyond the hope of life and the fear of death.
Whatever happens, we must go ahead. You should not be afraid of fire
or water. When the need arises, we will have to jump into the ocean;
when the time comes, we must be prepared to jump into the fire. That
is why all of you must be firm and stable. You must have only one aim,
one goal - to serve every living being in the universe.
Only those who are very alert and careful can be successful in
I do not like dishonesty; I want everyone to be honest and dutiful.
Everyone must do his duty correctly. You must know what you should
do and be busy doing it. By karma one will not fall but will always
rise higher. No work is low or bad in this world if it is done in the
The leaders should be those who are very able, who are full of
all virtues and capable of spreading this Message. There must be weight
and wisdom in their words, so people would like to obey them. A leader
must be selfless; one who desires to work for the upliftment of humanity.
The leaders must be dedicated to their country and spend all the time
for its upliftment. They must be able to encourage people.
Everyone must use his own common sense and do his duty without
waiting to be told what to do. To do your duty is the greatest worship
(of God), the greatest service, the greatest devotion and penance (tapas).
You must seek Liberation and help to liberate others.
