A Beautiful Christmas Card


Beloved Master,
I am seventy now, but still the sexual urge is there. What should I do?


Narayandas, you should not do anything. Enough is enough. Just the other day I have received from the great Madhuri a beautiful Christmas card. I must have received thousands of Christmas cards, but this is the most beautiful. And particularly for you, Narayandas, it will be helpful. So I will read this card from Madhuri.

From twenty to thirty, if you are feeling right
It is once in the morning and once at night.
From thirty to forty, if you are still living right,
You skip the morning but continue at night!
From forty to fifty, it is now and then….
And from fifty to sixty, it is God knows when!
From sixty on, if you are still inclined,
Believe me, fella –
It is all in your mind!
Happy Christmas!

Enough for today.
