Every Day with Shri Mataji


You should not treat each other as human beings treat each other. No, it is a precious thing. And even while talking to anyone very close – your brother, sister, husband, wife – you must respect. You must respect. Otherwise, it has no meaning. You must respect your parents much more than you ever respected because they are Sahaja Yogis, because they are saints and they are your parents. Respect is the keynote of the relationship with each other to begin with. And respect without love has no meaning. (1 December 1980)
