The Heart of the Matter
August 30, 2010
Maharaji in Montreal


Last night, Maharaji spoke to approximately 900 people at the Hilton Bonaventure Hotel in Montreal. What follows are selected excerpts of his talk -- my best approximation of what he said, scribed in the moment, not a word for word transcript. Enjoy!

"You should be fulfilled in such a manner that the fulfillment lasts you for the rest of your life."

"The only way your lamp can be lit is from another lamp that is lit."

"Heaven is here and Hell is here. You get to choose."

"There are the ones who know and the ones who don't know. And there are the ones like me, trying to convince the ones who don't know to know."

"Being at peace does not mean sacrificing your emotions. Being at peace means you're in a place where your heart is full."

"Why is light important? Does it change anything? No. The only thing light does is illuminate what is there so you can choose."

"Find your way in this life. Find your niche where you need to be. The good news? That place is inside you."

"What do I do? I put people in touch with that place. I have a way. Don't worry about it. I have a way. I call it 'Knowledge.'"

"You are concerned about the well. I am concerned about the rope and the bucket. Get the rope and the bucket, then go to the well which will quench your thirst. That's it. That's the whole game. That's the whole nine yards of wisdom."

"There are those in the world who are very good at making us believe things. Then there are those who are very good at making us know things. Your choice."

"Not knowing something doesn't make you inferior."

"This body is the vessel to go across the ocean -- the ocean of ignorance, pain, suffering, and doubt... What we need is a Master with strong arms who can row this vessel across."

"I'm telling you the truth that comes from my heart. I'm trying to light lamps."

"Listen to this because this can save your life. Know the Divine is inside of you and be thankful."

"I can't pull rabbits out of a hat -- I don't want to -- but one thing I can do, through the gift of Knowledge, is to put you in touch with what's inside you. I've done it for thousands and thousands of people. That's what I'm good at."
