understand yourself first

Sri Bhagavan: You want to know about God, about Heaven and how sages work for solving such big problems. I tell you that till you know what you yourself really are, you cannot in the least understand any of these. Understand yourself first and everything else would be clear to you then.

D: If sadhus mingle with people and reform them, it will be very good.

Sri Bhagavan: In the eye of the jnani there are no others so there is nothing like mingling with others for him.
