With waves  of thoughts in my mind, I stood with the book in my hand.
I felt I too was one among the seven thousand, who sat enthralled by Swami’s speech at Chicago Art institute. Foreseeing the world from the east, he spoke in the West.

No wonder, he began with “Sisters and Brothers of America”, winning unparalleled applause from the gathering. How else could  the representative of ‘mother of religions’, address his fellow beings.

He too must have had a sailor in him and that’s why, he said –
“As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which men take, through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee!” and “Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths that in the end lead to Me.”

I feel the gentle breeze is repeating his words or is it the  sun light that’s is whispering?

I have a question to both of them, ‘which one of you come from Cape Comerin, the land echoing the speech of the legend-

‘At Cape Camorin sitting in Mother Kumari’s temple, sitting on the last bit of Indian rock – I hit upon a plan: We are so many sanyasis wandering about, and teaching the people metaphysics-it is all madness. Did not our Gurudeva used to say, `An empty stomach is no good for religion?’

Yes I clearly hear his words……..
