      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      SELFISHNESS: A visitor had failed to attend the morning class. He caught
      the Master's eye in the morning and was offering an explanation.

      "But it was not your fault."

      Swami X. entered.

      "X. should have called you, awakened you and taken you with him to the
      Bhajan hall. Previously I myself used to sing Om outside every room,
      rouse everyone and take them to the morning class. The visitors
      naturally have the Bombay habit of sleeping till 7 a.m."

      Turning to X, "But you should have awakened him, if necessary by
      applying water to his face, and waited till he got up. Then you should
      have taken him with you to the Bhajan hall.

      "Not only this, you should have prepared the ground the previous night
      itself. You should have told him about the morning class, about the
      benefits of common meditation, about the lectures that he would hear and
      their benefits. He would thus go to bed with those thoughts in mind.

      "Selfishness--that is the root of all this! You wish to go on with your
      own Sadhana and consider such service as this a waste of time."


      "Whether oriental or occidental, Hinduism or Mohammedanism, Buddhism or
      Jainism, Christianity or Judaism, Shintoism or any other 'Ism', the
      spiritual purpose and meaning is to lead an individual soul to the
      ecstatic communion with the Universal Divinity or ONE TRUTH, the
      SOURCE." - Swami Premananda
