Gadekar said, “When we speak about the destruction of three-fourths of the world, the rich and intellectuals ridicule us, whereas the poor believe us and emphatically say the world will come to an end.”

Baba was amused by this and replied, “The poor and depressed derives a sort of relief on hearing about it in the hope and belief that the destuction of the world will automatically destroy with it their own suffering and poverty.

I recommend The Nazarene and wonder why it is not part of the Christian… Read more »
