To someone who asked if continuing to help a dog

afflicted with hip dysplasia into a car was interfering with the dog's muscle development

lamb over a stile."


PATH TO LIBERATION


Love all beings. That is enough.


NONVIOLENCE


Why pluck a flower and hasten her death?

*

To a follower who was still eating animals, Baba said

"God is in every creature. How can you cause such pain '


Nature can be modified by nurture; Dogs too can cease to relish
meat when they are trained to relish only vegetarian food.


It is wise to avoid restaurants in which animal flesh is served.


FORGIVING


The actor who slaps you on stage waits behind the

curtain to congratulate you on your performance.


God looks on sin as a mother looks upon her baby's

first halting attempts to walk.


SEXUAL ATTRACTION


Why does the dead ball moon shining with stolen light have more power on earth than the much greater self luminescent stars?  Proximity.


Disciple: Should I become a sannyasi? (a celibate monk). Baba: If you had

wanted to you would have done so by now.


DETACHMENT


"If the fruit is green it will not fall to the ground even if you beat it with a sharp stick. When it is ripe it falls of its own accord in the silence of the night." (book response when I felt uncentered after distributing vegan fliers at a DC chain grocery)


CRITICISM


Re those who criticize holy beings: Diamonds shine

more brightly foiled by black velvet.


HEALTH CARE


Health care should not be a business.

(In Bangalore Inda, a free hospital which conducts

10,000 free heart operations a year is run by Baba's followers. American insurance companies

have sent many clients there.)


NONDUALITY


Those who speak most loudly about advaita (the equal oneness of all) are

the very ones who exaggerate the tiniest differences.


SILENCE


Be silent like the rose which communicates only through fragrance.
