Today the world’s unrest is deepening. Civilisation is sinking. Forces of chaos are at work. I ask all to meditate on Krishna and the Buddha and Jesus, the three Great Brothers of humanity. All three gave the supreme message of harmony.
I ask you all to send out thoughts of love to all, to all communities, to all nations, all races, all religions, all creatures, men and birds and beasts. Let us pray a prayer for world-harmony. Never before was the world’s need so piteous. India suffers from discord and strife. And the nations of Europe are smitten with hate. If we bear witness to the ancient wisdom, let us breathe out loving thoughts to all.
Reichenbach, a German student of science, announced, many years ago, a beautiful theory. According to it, every material object shines. Cotton, wool, iron, everything emits light. Even the stones are luminous! I love to think that we live in a world of “shining matter”. Everything emits light! What of us? Have not we, also, a light? But it is imprisoned, the light of love.
We carry with us a glory, a splendour. But it is shut-in, not set free! Let us set free the imprisoned light within us! Let us save civilisation!
