184Be Realistic : Plan for a Miracle
Talks given from 13/3/76 to 6/4/76, Darshan Diary, 22 Chapters, Year Published: 1977
Content : [A sannyasin asks about his work in the West and his relationship:… it’s crazy that I should ask you these things… I’ve got my own mind.] No, you ask… that is a way of making up your mind, mm? Now you are part of me and I am as much involved in you as you are — even more. So don’t think that you are crazy. Just tell me. Even telling me will be of much help. I cannot decide for you, but I can help you to decide. These two things… something else? There must be a third thing also…

185Believing the Impossible Before Breakfast
Talks given from 1/2/78 to 28/2/78, Darshan Diary, 28 Chapters, Year Published: 1981
Content : Just raise your hands, close your eyes, and feel utterly open. These hands are the gestures of openness. Feel receptive, because sannyas has to be received; you cannot take it, you can only receive it. It is a gift: you can allow it to happen. There is no need to grab it. The only need is to give way, to let it happen. Feel great energy showering on you, as if you are standing under a waterfall. Energy is splashing on you and the body starts swaying, the body starts feeling drunk. Go into it, and if something starts happening in the body, allow it…

186Beloved of My Heart
Talks given from 3/5/76 to 28/5/76, Darshan Diary, 26 Chapters, Year Published: 1978

Content : [A sannyasin mother says she is having problems in her relationship: I find myself being very bitchy and nagging sometimes. I feel I’m just asking for a fight all the time.] Mm mm, love always brings trouble — and it has to be faced. Love cannot be always smooth, and it is good that it is not always smooth, otherwise you would not grow. Whenever there is a change, any sort of change, things will come into focus more clearly. When change disturbs you, all your inner disturbances are stirred. You are both feeling disturbed and both trying to throw the responsibility on the other. Just try to see it inside yourself. The other is never responsible. Remember that as a mantra: The other is never responsible…

187Blessed Are the Ignorant
Talks given from 4/12/76 to 31/12/76, Darshan Diary, 25 Chapters, Year Published: 1979
Content : Deva means divine, and agyana means ignorance; divine ignorance. And this has to be understood. All knowledge is superfluous. Knowledge as such is superfluous. And all knowledge creates only an illusion that we know — we don’t know. You can live with a man your whole life, and you can think that you know him — and you don’t know him. You can give birth to a child, and you can think you know him — and you don’t know him…

188The Buddha Disease
Talks given from 1/1/77 to 31/1/77, Darshan Diary, 31 Chapters, Year Published: 1979
Content : Buddha means one who is enlightened, and prem means love — love for the enlightened one, or love for enlightenment. Buddha is not a person — mm? it is a state of ultimate being. There have been many buddhas, and everybody is potentially a buddha. The word itself means tremendously awakened, absolutely alert… one whose consciousness has completely disappeared, who is just pure consciousness. You can look through and through and there is no darkness in it… not even lingering somewhere in the comers…
