Bernard E.- Ghana

As a nineteen year-old boy in secondary school, my priorities centered on passing my exams and with good grades too. On the other hand, there seemed to be so many uncertainties in the future that it created a lot of stress for me. Then, one day, I came across a group of students discussing the purpose of existence. It sounded strange, but very interesting. The more I listened, the more I wanted to hear. It was different from anything I had ever heard. Later, I was told that I could be shown a place within me that would literally translate my idea of heaven from words into a practical feeling. I wanted to witness it, partly out of curiosity and partly also because of a need for fulfillment.

In March 1977, I learned the techniques of Knowledge, a practical way of focusing attention internally instead of externally. Life took on a more joyful, less stressful, and more purposeful turn. I am more than grateful to Maharaji for what he has shown me and for continuing to clarify any issues relating to the practice of this Knowledge through his visits to West Africa and through videos and satellite broadcasts of his message. Words alone cannot express the gratitude that I feel for what he has shown to me. I am glad that our paths crossed.
