16 May, 1994 – We are so thankless


                Once Maharaj visited a colonel in Firozepur. He saw a man with a heavy pack strapped to his back running round and round the parade ground. “What is that?” he asked. “The officer replied, “Three times he has encountered me today. Two times he saluted me, but one time he did not. That is why he is being punished.”

Okay,” said Maharaj, “but what of you? When you wake up in the morning, do you remember and thank the One Who has given you sleep, Who gives you breakfast every day? We are so thankless that He should punish us until we quiver, but He is so merciful that He does not.”
