      "The Greatest Virtue"

      "Humility comes only through understanding. As long
      as you think you are somebody, you are not. When you
      say that you don't understand, you already begin to
      understand. It's not an inferiority complex. It's
      humility. Remember, the one who has a lot of
      understanding is always humble. You are probably
      familiar with the wheat plant. You see the wheat in
      the field growing straight up. They never bend down
      but, at the time when they are rich in nutrition and
      fully ripe, they are not straight any more. Because
      there is weight in the head, they bend and bow down.
      An empty head will proudly stand straight up and say,
      'I am so high.' But the mature one bends low to the
      ground. So the understanding one will always be humble,
      which is the greatest virtue.

      "God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
