Any sort of bad habit (laat) puts us in slavery- be it of any kind. Now there is a severe addiction to chewing paan (betel leaves with betel nuts) here and then adding tobacco into it.
Just imagine- God has created you with such great affection to be born in this country so that you could become unique from the rest of the world. It is possible. Only Hindustanis are like that. But now I find a few diseases (bimari) are more pronounced in them- that is, they eat money instead of meals (earning money illegally through corruption).
Now, the road by which we came here was not their earlier, but it pained Me so much to find that such a road has been constructed now and no one can claim that it is new. This can be done by the Indians only. I have not seen such shameless people anywhere else in the world who could do such acts and they are of no use at all. Anyone with a higher status with respect to the other can do such acts here at any time.
Therefore, today we have to swear in the first place that we have to get our Agnya all right. The greatest play at the Agnya level is that we start thinking that we are the best and we believe that we can rule over the world, we can reform the world.
When you are not all right yourself, then how can the world be set right? Well, you must have seen a number of people who respect and place you in high esteem and yet commit a lot of wrong. In this country people earn money illegally through corruption (paise khatey hain).
Tell Me how shall God ever forgive us. The greatest of all sins committed are stealing and paise khana (earning money illegally through corruption). The person who commits these types of offenses, you may try anything on him- he may try anything, offer pujas, prayers, chant mantras, recite text from holy scriptures, read namaz, pray in the name of Allah or he may do any such thing- nothing is going to be of any use to him.
