WITH THE STARS
One day a man comes to Buddha and asks if there is a God. 'There is no' God, says Buddha. The next man comes to Buddha and also asks if there is a God. 'Yes, there is a God, says Buddha.' Anando, Buddhas brother, is standing nearby and hears all of this. He goes to Buddha and asks, 'Excuse me, Buddha, but you told the first man there is a God and you told the second man there is no God. What is the truth? Buddha said, 'The first man needed to hear there is a God and the second man needed to hear there is not.'
In the thousands of sessions I have given and the satsangs I have been to, everyone is asking the same questions. What is true for one person is not necessarily true for the other. Good to know the difference.
We come together as a group and we have a tea. If you want to ask a question, you give your birthdate and birthtime and the answer is according to that. We listen not only to our own truth, we listen to the truth of others.
