You Know Where You Are Going

Swami Vishwananda: You will see how important are the feet of the teacher when you go to a Hindu Temple. The first representation that you see is the feet of the Deity. The first thing that you do is to bow down to the feet. You go to the Master and you bow down to the feet. You bow down to the greatness. Bow down to the Divine inside (you). You bow down to the Father within the Teacher. And that is what *Christ said. He said it word by word. I don’t even need to comment on it. [* Christ said: “My Father and I are One.”] It is very clear that this non-duality Of God is within man. On the way to God-realization you will Not reach God-realization with pride. You will not reach it with arrogance. You will reach God-realization only when you are humble. And people will be against you. You know where you are going And you know why. So, meditate on that.
