The Eternal Message

From The Sannyas Wiki

beloved bhakti,
Love. Meditation is like the sea, receiving the dirty river and yet remaining pure.
You need not be purified before it.
But you will come purified out of it.
Meditation in unconditional.
Purity is not a pre-requirement - but a consequence.
(Osho, letter 12)
