After decades of Academic research in the top American Universities, Ram Dass found something very profound in India. The miracle of universal unconditional love. This love goes beyond the boundaries of race, gender, religion, even species.
Neem Karoli Baba personified this universal love. I feel this is the nature of an ideal being, something we can all aspire to.
Here are some excerpts from ‘Miracle of Love’ including Maharaji’s words which Ram Dass compiled.
‘FORGIVENESS IS THE GREATEST WEAPON,
BECAUSE A SAINT SO ARMED IS UNPERTURBABLE
HE CAN GIVE UP ANGER IMMEDIATELY’
‘EVEN IF A PERSON HURTS YOU, GIVE HIM
LOVE. THE WORST PUNISHMENT IS TO
THROW SOMEONE OUT OF YOUR HEART
YOU SHOULD LOVE EVERYONE AS GOD, AND LOVE
EACH OTHER. IF YOU CANNOT LOVE EACH
OTHER, YOU CANNOT ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL.’
‘LOVE ALL MEN AS GOD, EVEN IF THEY HURT YOU OR
SHAME YOU. BE LIKE GANDHI AND CHRIST’
Ram Dass now personifies much of the beauty which Maharaji brought to the world. I will be meeting him in a few weeks, I can’t wait.
