5th January, 1936
There were some French ladies and gentlemen and American as visitors to the Asramam. They asked Sri Bhagavan several questions. Among them, one was: "What is the message of the East to the West?"
Maharshi: All go to the same goal.
To another question Sri Bhagavan said: "How do you say `I am'?
Do you take a light to find yourself? Or did you come to know it on reading books? How?"
The questioner said: "By experience."
Maharshi: Yes. Experience is the word. Knowledge implies subject and object. But experience is non-terminal, eternal.
