" Do not desire union with God, but long for union till you go beyond longing for union, and long only for the will and pleasure of Beloved God ".

" Age after age many aspire for such a surrender, but only very few really attempt to surrender themselves to me completely as I want ".
" God is not to be lured, but is to be loved. God is not be preached, but is to be lived. Only those who live the life of love, honesty and self-sacrifice, can know Me as the Ancient One ".

" I belong to no religion.Every religion belongs to Me. My own personal religion is of My being the Ancient Infinite One and the religion I teach to all is of love of God. This love can be practised by anyone, high, low, rich, poor, and every one of every caste and creed can love God ".

" If we love God honestly, we become one with Him. Never before has dishonesty and hypocrisy prevailed in this world as today. If the least hypocrisy creeps into our thoughts, words and deeds, God, who is the inner most self in us all, keeps Himself hidden".
" I am the devine beloved who loves you more than you can ever love yourself. The breaking of my silence will help you to help yourself in knowing your real self ".

" To love me for what I may give you is not loving Me at all. To sacrifice anything in My cause to gain something for yourself is like a blind man sacrificing his eyes for sight. I am the Divine Beloved, worthy of being loved because I am love. He who loves me because of this will be blessed with unlimited sight and will see Me as I am ".

" I can say with Divine Authority that I experience eternally, consciously and continually, being one with you all, and one in you all. Any worship or obeisance done to any deity… to any saint, master, advanced soul or yogi eventually comes to Me. By offering pure unadulterated love to anyone and to anything, you will be loving Me, as I am in everyone and everything and beyond everything ".

" Remember in the future, that when anyone hurts you, it is I who hurt you; when anyone loves you , it is I who love you; when anyone laughs at you, it I who am laughing; when you love anyone, It is I whom you love. I am in all things . How can you realize My infinite presence if you shrink from Me in those that hurt you and welcome me in only those who please you ? "

" Age after age, when the wick of righteousness burns low, the Avatar comes yet once again to rekindle the torch of Love and Truth. Age after age, amidst the clamor of disruptions, wars, fear and chaos, rings the Avatar's Call: "Come all unto Me."

" The birth of the real can only follow the death of the false ".
