Compassion for suffering humanity, found Wonderful Expression in the

The Master Said:
"If a man clings tenaciously to truth he
ultimately realizes God. Without this regard for truth he gradually loses
If by chance I say that I will go to the pine- grove, I
must go there even if there is no further need of it, lest I lose my
attachment to truth.
After my vision of the Divine Mother, I prayed to
Her, taking a flower in my hand:
'Mother, here is Thy knowledge and
here is Thy ignorance. Take them both and give me only pure love. Here is
Thy holiness and here is Thy unholiness. Take them both, Mother, and give me
pure love. Here is Thy good and here is Thy evil. Take them both, Mother,
and give me pure love. Here is Thy righteousness and here is Thy
unrighteousness. Take them both, Mother, and give me pure love'. I
mentioned all these, but I could not say: 'Mother, here is Thy truth and here
is Thy falsehood. Take them both'.
I gave up everything at Her
Feet, but could not bring myself to give up truth".
