WISDOM OF THE SADHU


In India, one feels everywhere - even through idols and altars, pilgrims and penitents, temples and tanks - that there is a desire for higher things. In the West, however, everything points to armed force, great power, and material things. It is this power of evil that makes me so sad. India is more and more seeking the Master's truth. The West is in danger of becoming more and more indifferent. And yet the West owes so many of its blessings to Christianity. At one time the ostrich could fly, but because the ostrich stopped using its wings, it became unable to fly. So are the people of Europe and America - they do not appreciate the faith of their forebears and are fast losing it.  Sundar Singh (1889-1929)
