Every Day with Shri Mataji


A lady asked Me in Italy, "Mother, how can You be a mother, grandmother, wife and looking after so many people all over the world?" I said it is very simple. If you have pure detached love, you rise in a tree like sap and you go into the various places like the branches, then you go to the leaves, then you go to the flowers, then to the fruits and come back. So you nourish everything. It is not difficult, but to have this love. To understand this love, a connection has to be established – a connection with the all-pervading power. If the connection is not established, to whom are we praying...? The mistake is not that of God. He has all compassion, but you must get connected. (12.08.1988)
