Second Public Talk at Rajghat
12 November 1984
A religious mind has great sense of beauty
What is a religious mind? What does the word ‘religious’ mean?
What is beauty?
Without beauty there is no sense of morality. Beauty in itself is virtue.
There is beauty only when the self is not. And that is the first thing that is required in understanding what is a religious mind.
What is the relationship between nature and each of us?
Is love desire? Is love pleasure? Is love sorrow, pain, anxiety, jealousy, hatred? Or is love something totally divorced from all this?
There is beauty in relationship, not in attachment.
Conflict exists only when we deny the actual fact of ‘what is’.
When you suffer you cannot love. Can you find out whether sorrow can end?
Meditation is not the activity of will or determination.
