But I think the premies who are not meditating, you
know what they are doing ? It is, getting three tons
of vegetables in their house and not eating it. You
know what that means ? When it'll start rotting, phew,
it's gotta rot like hell ! And that's the way this
Knowledge is. If it was a 'mantra' or something, and
you forget it, doesn't matter. But this Knowledge,
it's like, you got the vegetables of the whole
universe with you. And if you don't meditate, can you
imagine how its going to rot ?
Question: I received Knowledge, and I was
meditating upon it, but then I stopped. Now I am
finding it very difficult to start again.
Answer: in India some boys take a match box and
they take the tray out, and take out the matches. Then
they make a hole in it and joint it with two matches
and a string to another tray, then you can talk into
it and you can listen. But if the string is broken or
a knot is tied in it, it won't work. Or if the string
is touching anything, also it will not work. It must
be just straight and free. If it is loose also, you
Question: But how does one joint the string
when it is broken ?
Answer: if you are trying to tie a knot in it,
you will not be successful at all. But Satguru has got
a special machine for mending this string, and this is
His Grace that will joint it together again, exactly
the same as it was before. If He sees someone really
trying to mend that string, he will come and help them
and make the string the same as it was before.
Question: if someone has received the
Knowledge, but never practices, what happens at the
judgment time - does he go fast or does he stop ?
Answer: Now, when he has received Knowledge,
but is not meditating upon it, a double-top is placed
in the carburetor, and the power becomes very
restricted. That man has to push himself like this,
and jerk out to this place, like an old man climbing
up the stairs ? Have you seen a very very old man
climbing up the stairs ? How he jerks himself ? Goes
and steps and
stops. Goes and steps and stops.
Question: Sometimes he falls down the steps
Ans: Yes, that's right.
Question: What happens to people who don't
understand and don't practice ?
Answer: Kabir says, if you are standing on a
boat and taking someone out of the water, if you can
take him out of that river, well and good, take him
out. If you can't, then give him two pushes more,
otherwise he will bring you down with him. If you are
standing in the boat and someone is drowning in the
water, take him up if you can. If you can't, then give
him two pushes more !
Question: Guru MaharaJ Ji, what happens if
somebody takes Knowledge and doesn't practice it ?
Answer: If you don't practice this Knowledge,
you will get rotten inside. There is so much energy
contained in this Knowledge, just imagine how much
harm it will be able to do you if you know it, but do
not use it properly.
