Man looks small but he is not: he contains infinities in him. He contains the whole sky, and all the oceans and all the stars. Man is a universe in himself – it is just that we are not aware of our own strength. The day you become aware of it, the day of rejoicing has come.
Sannyas is initiation into your own inner richness. I am here to acquaint you with yourself. I cannot give you anything, because in the first place you don’t need anything, and in the second place truth cannot be given. The moment truth is uttered it becomes a lie, but truth is already in you.
My function is to persuade you, seduce you towards your own heights and your own depths. The moment you start listening to your own soundless music then life has wings. Then you are not confined, then nothing confines you. Then this whole universe is yours. And that has to be claimed; it is our inheritance.
Jesus calls it the kingdom of God, but again and again he also says: It is within you. It is absolutely unbelievable that you can contain the great truth, that you can contain Cod in you. I know the mind cannot believe it, but believe it or not, it is so. And it is not a question of belief, it is a question of inquiry.
Let sannyas become a great inquiry into your own depths, and you will come upon treasures and treasures which are inexhaustible.
