What is the model of your plan
Speaking at Indira Gandhi stadium in new Delhi, at an event hosted specially to address youth of the nation, Maharaji questions
"People say, We are young now. It's time for us to have fun. But just a minute, if you talk of fun... even we are having fun. Because the party which I am talking about, goes from morning to evening, evening to night, and from night to morning! That non-stop party I am talking about. It goes on and on till you take your last breath.
But just a point, the planning that you have structured 'This is our youthful days of fun, and when we get really old, then we will think about God. Those days will be spent on prayers.' Just a question- On which blue-print did you do your planning? You did planning, thats fine. But what's the model for this plan? Because the one 'above' doesn't care about anything. The life just comes to end for anyone anytime- young, old, rich, uneducated, educated.. anyone! Where did you get such statistics? Who did the engineering for this blueprint?
Three things happen in your life, which I don't even need to say this: Birth- which has already happened, Living- which is going on, and the third thing you know very well. Do you really know the third thing (death) or have only heard about it? Do you understand the value of this breath? When you were in your mother's womb, your parents would talk about your future. But in that one little moment when you came out of mother's womb, every one focussed on only one thing- are you breathing or not. And once that was fine, then everything else starts. Then people discuss if you are a boy or a girl. And the irony is, in the last moment again things come down to breath - if you are taking it or stopped.
