The sky is the roof of my ashram and the earth is the floor

Sun, 11/13/2011

Today, this Ashram completes 30 years, but this knowledge must have completed 30,000 years! This knowledge is ancient.
This whole world is one family and the Lord lives in everyone's heart.  See everybody as yourself, love everybody, and serve everybody. This is very important. This knowledge began from the day this world started.  Usually, people ask me to start an ashram in this place or that place. I always say, ’all the plants and trees in this world is in my ashram. The sky is the roof of my ashram and the earth is the floor.’ When we have a broad mind, we feel that everything belongs to us. We don't see anything as separate from ourselves.  So this ashram came into being, and all of you got an opportunity to meditate here. We must make this opportunity available to everybody.   There is one rule in this ashram. You can bring your problems into the ashram, but you cannot take it back with you. You have to leave them all here and do satsang.
Satsang doesn't mean just singing bhajans. What truth have I experienced in life? What is not true in life? What should I let go of? Discussing these questions is satsang. After analyzing this, when our mind becomes clear, we should let go of all the unwanted things and then love dawns in us. Once love dawns, all the experiences come to us.
