You have the unique chance of meeting Him, at the Prasanthi Nilayam, and receiving from Him His Blessings for the success of your spiritual pilgrimage. Look at the clouds that wander across the sky; note that they have no intimate lasting relationship with the sky which they hide but for a few minutes.

But one fact has to be emphasised again. This type of identity has to be grasped. The fourth, the Brahmavarishta is in the seventh grade, the Thureeya, the stage of perpetual Samaadhi.

Is that statement false? Wants should not be multiplied. This is how the Vedas describe it. It creates affection and attachment and so, by means of the dual pulls of happiness and sorrow the one to gain and the other, avoid to it plunges man deeper and deeper into activity.
