21 JUNE 1982
I congratulate you all for the progress you have made in the universal service you are doing here. The work is not only for individual progress, but also for the progress of mankind. You must continue this development. From this place—Herakhan Vishwa Mahadham—the whole world is blessed. Herakhan Vishwa Mahadham is not the property of one person, it is the property of all mankind. Progress made at Herakhan Vishwa Mahadham benefits the universe. You are fortunate to be in Herakhan, because even the gods long to be here. Humanity is making a grave mistake by misusing non-violence. Time and again I have said this to you. You have come into the world to work. You must always be eager to work. The one who is idle is like a dead man. You have come to this world to live, not to die. Work which I want to accomplish is to remove the misuse of non- violence. People have become lifeless and their blood has become like water. You should be brave and courageous—afraid of nothing. You should not be afraid of being burned by fire or drowned by water. If you are brave and courageous, nothing will harm you, not even the atomic bomb. You must be fearless for yourself and for all humanity. I do not recognize castes and races. I behold only one humanity. I am working for mankind while here. Over half of my work is finished. There are devotees working all over the world. I will complete the rest of my work while here.
