It’s always the same — I think about so many things to share with you, and find myself going back to the Master’s words. It’s interesting to know how amazingly contextual His statements are; one can’t hang on to something He said twenty years or twenty days ago and try to “massage” it as gospel truth, nor would He expect you to. I look to Him to give me a fresh, current perspective which will have a direct bearing on my experience of reality at this moment, which is dynamically evolving. At the same time, the basic principles are unchanging — as these sutras are independent of time and place — they hold their relevance through the ages. The beauty is that they are given to us as easily applicable principles which evolve to fit our ever changing contexts. I said the other day — “Guru ke paas tumhe kuchh baasi ya jhootha nahin diya jayega” (The Guru will not give you something stale or chewed by others) — it is always fresh, relevant, personal, immediate, urgent and applicable!
Q: Guruji our politicians aren’t any good. How can you change corrupted ones like the one in my country?
