Leonard S.- Capetown, South Africa

I first came across Maharaji's talks when I was twenty-one years old and completing my degree in social science at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. I was struck by the obviousness of what he was saying. Far from being boring, it was instead a refreshing reminder of a fundamental happiness. What really made a difference to me was that I actually felt good while listening to what he was saying. I later understood that listening to his talks would help me to become more familiar with this fundamental happiness that already existed within me.

At forty-two years old, I still enjoy listening and learning from Maharaji's talks and derive tremendous personal benefit from them. I can't really compare Maharaji's addresses to university lectures that engage my intellect, since what he speaks about doesn't appeal to my intellect. At the risk of sounding trite, his addresses appeal to my heart, the part of myself that feels rather than thinks. I have come to understand that there are two areas operating within me— an area of thinking and an area of feeling. I choose to explore and engage both. I have benefited from some very good lecturers and teachers who have stimulated my thinking. Maharaji has been invaluable to me in the area of feeling.
