At this juncture, when we have all these possibilities, if we try to be hypocritical, we are harming ourselves. If you try to criticize others and not ourselves, then we are going to miss the bus. You must understand the importance of time. That is something people miss out.
So, please try to understand, we have to introspect ourselves. We have to meditate and when we are conscious about our own defects, we start looking at it and they’ll drop off.
So for all these ego manifestations, you have to be very, very careful. Now supposing if you have money, then you’ll try to show off. If you have some power, supposing you have certain position in the government, you’ll try to show off. Anything, these artificial things. I have known people who show off for absurd things which have no meaning. I don’t understand that these all things are outside. They’re not enriching you. They are in no way giving you the strength that you need, in no way making you beautiful.
So all these outside things anybody can have. It’s nothing great about it, but the inner wealth that you develop is the only way you can purify yourself…
So today we have to place ourselves in such a manner that we ask for purity and purity and purity and that we are going to work out this purity within ourselves with full sincerity. We are not going to get into ego trip or anything that we are perfectly all right. No. We are just going to ask for complete purity within ourselves.
Whatever has happened, you forget it. You don’t worry on that point. Whatever has happened is a gone case. But whatever has to happen is this — that you all should ask for purity. All criticism, all hatred and all those things will disappear, plus the purity will give you that unique position that when people will even see your life, they will change. Only by seeing your life, they will change.
