This satsang also includes the following interactions:
PREM KUMARI: “I am in your presence wherever I am.”
YUKI mentions the instance when Papaji told a French monk to throw his bag into the Ganga and asks, “What bag do I have to throw in the Ganga for instant enlightenment?” Papaji: “If you have any desires you cannot be enlightened instantly. Throw the bag containing freedom, which is also a concept.”-
FRED: “I do not know who I am.” Papaji plays with word reading his letter and he explodes in a spontaneous laughter.
ALEYA: Papaji suggests Doctor Kabir for treating her grandson who has cancer.
KATIA: “The only desire left is to expire into emptiness.” Papaji: “God of death does not come near the one who comes to Satsang. and who has no ambition.”
