The Value of Faith in God

Neem Karoli Baba MaharajjiBabaji would sometimes wax eloquent while talking about contentment in life:

"The real contentment comes only when there is no desire, no hankering in your mind for anything.

"How can you say that you have got everything and do not want anything more when you are holding an empty vessel in your hand?

"You might be saying this with your mouth, but there would always be the worry in your mind about how the pot could be filled, always looking from side to side with the expectation that somebody will come and fill it up.


A Few Quotes

Neem Karoli Baba Maharajji"They came to fight with me. They wanted to burn the temple building. I knew what they were after and took up their challenge. If you had seen their condition you would have laughed. They ran for their lives and many of them soiled their trousers. Fools - they do not know me. Bigger battles I have fought and won. How could they know my strength? They are all fools."

 "Dada, do not get angry - this is samsara, this is samsara. You are worried about my food, but they do not bother about it. Nobody comes to me for my own needs. Everyone is busy with himself."

"Prayer and worship should be done by everyone, every day, as the highest obligatory duty to God; visiting temples and pilgrimages should be undertaken only under favorable conditions and suitable times. They are not essential for your worship and religious duties, whereas prayers and pujas are, and must be done in some form or other."
