- "Baba explains that when He is in seclusion He does not give discourses and messages at all, but that He has given the above because of His love for us.Because of His love for us, picture Him now, as we look at Him now, and picture Him every day for that one minute in Silence. Do it every day; don't break the sequence of this daily connection, and then you will achieve this bliss."
- "You all will have received from Baba what in India is called "prasad," and that is not just a conventional gift. In India, where people gather in tens of thousands at a time to receive gifts from Him, something to eat like a sweet, they accept it as something great, when they go away realizing that they have something of His Self, given as something from His own Heart. Because this present of "prasad" is really a seed of love planted in your heart, and you should take that sweet with that idea in your mind when meeting Baba."
- "Baba, here or anywhere, knows, and that is the idea you should hold, facing Him at this moment. Whatever state you have, joys or worries, Baba knows, because His knowledge is the knowledge of the heart, not just mental appreciation of mere words. It is your heart that Baba understands and knows, as you approach Him, when His heart meets yours; and that is the significance of meeting with Him.
"When you come before Him, you have many things which you would like to say to Him, but in fact it is not necessary to tell Him. HE KNOWS. If He did not know it, coming before Him would not matter. It is impossible to be deceived when it is the knowledge of the heart.
"There are many religions, temples, and many religious practices and prayers which you yourselves may know, and the people following them; but God appears indifferent to those prayers or does not hear them, for this reason, that they are not of the heart.
"The prayer God hears is the prayer of the heart, that raising of the heart, that suffering of the heart, that is what God pays attention to. And so it does not matter and certainly it is foolish to rely upon the usual religious practices and ritual. What matters is your heart, the prayer that arises from your heart. That is the prayer that Baba hears, that God hears.
"Baba says Jesus Christ said this exactly when He said, ‘When you pray, close the door, pray in secret.' So, pray from the heart, even if you are with a thousand people . . .
