      glory of this occasion, has been posted at:

      SEEING GOD IN ALL: It was Wednesday, May 23, 1962.
      The sun had set. The moon had not risen yet. The
      Master emerged from his cottage to proceed to the
      night Satsang. A loving smile lit his childlike face.
      A large group of devotees gathered by the roadside
      and greeted him with folded palms. A party of
      visitors from Tiruttani cried devotedly, "Muruga!
      Vadivela!"

      The Master responded with a spontaneous outburst of
      divine praise, "Muruga! Muruga! Om Saravanabhavaya
      Namah! Om Saravanabhavaya Namah!"

      -----------------------------------------------------

      "Our hearts are hard like granite. Whatever be the
      religiosity and the traditional aspiration for
      religious life that many manifest, it is actually a
      dying to live for the sake of God. The destruction
      that is associated with Lord Siva - he is called the
      lord of death as he destroys everything, swallows
      everything in the end of time - is actually the
      destruction of that element in every one of us, whose
      presence prevents him from coming near us. What that
      element is, each one of us has to ransack within our
      own hearts and see that it is taken out so that the
      flood from outside unites itself with the flood that
      is arising from inside. This is God-union." - Swami
      Krishnananda
