Rajiv Mehrotra has a weekly chat show on Doordarshan television in India called "in Conversation" He has interviewed many world leaders and celebrities. Doordarshan is the first national TV station, accessible all across India.
I was lucky to be invited to the interview which was in English and was very lively and informative.
Yesterday (11th March) the interview aired on TV here in Delhi at 9:30 pm.
Here are some words from their conversation:
Rajiv: It seems Maharaji, my reality is different from your reality.
Maharaji: The breath comes into you and the breath comes into me.
All the people on the face of this earth have the same fundamental reality.
One perspective is saying - I think, and one perspective is saying, I know.
What I am saying is get in touch with that fundamental reality. You feel it, and thats it!
Do you want to get in touch with that reality inside of you?
R: Yes. What do I need to do to reach the peace you recommend?
M: The first step is to understand that the peace is already within you.
R: Yes I do believe that.
R: Is there a technique?
M: Yes. There are 4 techniques that take you inside.
R: Tell us what it is?
M: It begins with "Do I feel that thirst."
Once a person gets thirsty, they find the water.
R: Do you ever get thirsty?
M: Of course I do! When I get thirsty, I turn to that well within and drink.
R: What is your destination?
M: My destination is to have the access to that peace that is inside of me.
