The University primarily provides education in the multidisciplinary fields of science, technology and management. It is popularly known as WBUT or UTech. Funded at the initial stages of its formation by the Government of West Bengal, the UTECH is set to become a Centre of Excellence in multidisciplinary science and technology areas of topical importance, in studies and research, in addition to providing adequate facilities for the pursuit of degree and advanced-level course in management, paramedical and other professional areas through its affiliated institutions. The University has been accorded the affiliating University status with its jurisdiction encompassing the entire state of West Bengal.

Students of many other institutes in that region were also invited. In the Completely filled hall, Maharaji delivered his message and also responded to various questions asked by the excited and curious youth:

Q: Many of us are becoming spiritual in order to search peace of mind. Do you think we are becoming selfish, or is it some kind of divine planning?

A: Selfish is so relative! When we have the luxury of sitting somewhere. Then is it like selfish? If my action deprives somebody of something, then it selfish. But when I am going to discover myself, not the other person; who am I depriving of what? Secondly, the creator has given you gift of breath- Now give this to somebody else! You can't! Even if you want to, you can't. Is that selfish? It is NOT selfish. It is what it is. To search for yourself is not selfish, because you are not depriving anybody of anything.

Q: Maharaji, my question is "What is true joy, and how can we experience this in our life"
A: It is within you.
Aatam anubhav gyaan ki, jo koi pooche baat
So gunga gud khaaye ke, kahe kaun mukh swaad!

How can I describe the experience of knowledge. When I cannot explain you the taste of Kiwi Fruit, how can I explain you the feeling of Self-Knowledge! You have to experience it yourself. This is the possibility. That is why it is so exciting! This is not a philosophy. I have not come to say "do this and that", and then disappear. No. I am not here to give you give an hour lecture "You should find the God within you. Ok kid bye!"
"Nai, Main apne saare shubdon ke peeche hoon"- I backup up every word I say!
And that is what makes it so exciting. Around the world - Saare Sansaar ke andar, Main logon ko ye dikhata hoon, batata hoon, aur anubhav karata hoon (I show this to people, tell them, and also make them experience this)!

Q: In this world of inhumanity where the bloods are shed, and the wars are fought, which peace do you talk about. How is the peace possible.
A: The real peace- not satisfaction. A peace that can be experienced in a battle-field. True freedom- A freedom that even a prisoner can feel in the middle of the prison. Someone who doesn't have peace, can only imagine what peace should be, or could be. Peace is not absence of war. Peace is not anti-corruption. These are pro-social things, good for society. There can be no war outside, but a war will rage inside you. The war outside can be ceasefire brought forth. But the war inside rages day and night. A true peace that is not absence of war, but a absence of war inside. Well, unfortunately that will be the last question. I am glad that you all were able to come. Thank you all, and many many blessings!
