Guru Maharaj Ji was twelve years old when he gave the
following discourse at the 1970 Hans Jayanti in New
Delhi. He proclaimed that he was going to spread the
Knowledge of God to the entire world in his lifetime and
establish peace on the earth. Before a million devotees,
he revealed his plan. The effect of this satsang was so
profound that it has become known as the "Peace Bomb".
Hundreds of thousands of people wept to hear him, but
their tears were all of love.
In this age which is coming, everybody will have his
desserts. Justice will be done, and the proud will be
made humble. So, dear premies, forsake that grandeur that
is making you so lazy, and go and tell people about God.
Remember what the Lord says about this in the Bhagavad
Gita: "He who tells people about me is dearer to me than
my own life.". So tell people about God. In the Ramayana
it is said, "The Supreme Light illuminates all day and
night; It does not need any lamp, oil or wick."
You may read the Gita and the Ramayana daily, worship
them daily, but have you understood their essence? Have
you even tried to understand their essence? What is the
significance of their words? What is that Supreme Light?
The light of the sun, moon, fire and electricity can be
seen by all animals and birds, but there is one light
that is beyond them. Before the electric light was
invented, then it was called the Fourth Light, but now it
is the Fifth Light, and only man can see that Light. Only
man has the right to see that Light. It is said, "Even
animals and birds know what is good and bad for them. But
this human body is a treasure of virtues and Knowledge."
All living creatures know what is good for them - that if
I go this way I will hurt myself - all animals and birds
know this. But what is the purpose of this human life? It
is to know something more than this - it is to know God.
By obtaining the human body, you can receive Knowledge
and meditate on God, and this is the unique purpose.
There is one famous poem in which the poet expresses his
feelings in very simple words. "Which is the blessed
home", he asks. "That home where there is talk about God.
Which ears are blessed? Those that hear words about God.
Which eyes are blessed? Those that have the darshan of
Guru Maharaj Ji. Which foreheads are blessed? Those that
bow down to Guru Maharaj Ji." So dear premies, receive
this Knowledge and know God within yourself. That pure
energy, God, is within your own heart.
In the Bhagavad Gita, the Lord says that whenever
religion becomes corrupted and evil increases, He takes a
human body and manifests in this world to destroy evil
and to protect His devotees. All of you must know very
well what is happening to religion and Knowledge in the
materialistic age. All the time, the latest models are
being built, the latest fashions are being designed. Day
by day men are striving to improve the quality and
appearance of their inventions. And today I have to say
with sorrow that the Knowledge which was once firmly
established in this land of India has been slowly
disappearing. But when the Lord saw that the troubles His
devotees were having to endure had reached the final
point, He said, "My devotees can bear it no longer", and
then manifested Himself in a human body. So He has now
come to reveal the lost Knowledge and to restore true
peace. The Lord, the True Saint, the True Guru Maharaj Ji
has incarnated in this world. So, in this ground, where
one moment ago I expressed sorrow, I now praise the fate
of India. I do not have the words to express how
fortunate we are that the Lord's Grace always saves us
from destruction and makes us His lovers.
So, dear premies, we Indians have a duty and that duty is
to forget that self-esteem which makes you lazy and to
destroy those things that separate you from God. Only
accept that which is of God, which is one with the Name
of God, and from which every ray of the Light of God
comes. Accept that and show the Western world that in
this degrading age, we are the same Indians as before.
The Lord, Guru Maharaj Ji, has brought the same Grace
with Him that He brought for us before, and if you are
not receiving it then come to me.
Tulsidas has said, "The people of the world have
developed cataracts, for they cannot see God who resides
in their own hearts. Like the deer that runs about in the
forest seeking the fragrance of the musk that comes from
its own navel, God exists in every heart, but the world
does not know."
When the deer smells a scent, it roams around the jungle
in search of its source, but the poor thing does not know
that the scent is coming from its own navel. In the same
way, dear premies, we seek outside and do not know that
He is within us. Dear premies! If God is within us, how
will we know Him? We cannot tear open our hearts like
Hanuman because even if we cut our fingers slightly, we
bandage it. Will you tear your heart? How will you rip
open your chest? But, dear premies, that energy, that
Lord you are seeking outside is within your heart, so
seek for him inside. "One who seeks in deep water, finds.
I sought fearfully and was left sitting on the
One who dives deep finds the pearl, but one who only sits
by the shore bathes in salt water. Those who turn their
minds inwards see God, and those who look at the world
only see the world.
So, dear premies, receive this Knowledge, and those who
have received this Knowledge must meditate and have Guru
Maharaj Ji's darshan. He who learns to love Guru Maharaj
Ji, Guru Maharaj Ji gives him peace. Subash Chandra Bose
used to say, "Give me your blood and I will give you
independence." Likewise, I too have a slogan: give me
your love and I will give you peace. Surrender the reins
of your life unto me and I will give you such peace as
will never die. Come to me, and I will give you
liberation. Place the reins of your life in my hands, and
I will relieve you of your suffering. First, be capable
of giving the reins of your life to me, then give them.
And if I do not give you peace, I will give them back to
So, dear premies, give the reins of your life to me and I
will give you peace.
Why do you search in the world? Peace is not there, peace
is with me. To have peace, come to me; I will show you
the way to peace. If no one else can give you peace, I
will give it to you. Those who are lost can come and
those who are fond of roaming can roam about in
arrogance. Those who come to me, those who are lost, I
will give them peace.
My condition now is the same as Lord Shiva's once was.
Lord Shiva and His consort Parvati were once going along
with a bull. The people they passed started saying how
foolish they were to have a bull with them and still be
walking on foot. So Lord Shiva said, "Let us sit on the
bull. What else can we do?" And so both of them rode on
it. Further on, a crowd passed them by. They said, "How
cruel that couple is. What a pity for the poor bull, to
have two healthy people sitting on its back". So Shiva Ji
asked Parvati to sit on the bull alone. Then they moved
on. Soon, they came across another crowd. This time they
said, "See how much that woman serves her husband! He is
walking while she herself is riding." So Parvati said,
"You sit, please". But while He was sitting, another
crowd came by and said, "He married a wife, but he has no
respect for her. He sits on the bull while she is walking
on foot". Parvati said, "Look, Lord, the world keeps on
complaining, so you too get off, and both of us will walk
It is the same way with me. Some people say one thing,
some people say another. But what am I? I am just a
traveling saint. What have I to do with the world? What
will the world give to me? It can receive from me, but
what can it give to me? "When the devotee has the
blessings of the Perfect Master, what does he lack? All
the gods and goddesses envy him and liberation never
leaves him." Guru Maharaj Ji has infinite mercy on me.
Take from me, but what will you give me? Will you give me
love? The love that you will give me, that love is also
mine, so what is yours? Did you just happen to fall from
the sky without the help of Guru Maharaj Ji and without
the Lord? No, the Lord has created you and Guru Maharaj
Ji has put love into you. Oh, give what is mine back to
me, and I will give you such a thing, such a peace, that
not even a pistol or a gun will be found in the country.
Not one leader will stand and shout slogans, not a man of
the army will remain and, dear premies, there will be
peace. I will give you this peace because it is in my
possession and I can give it. I do not need machine guns,
I do not need pistols, I do not need a sword, I do not
need a spear. I possess such a Knowledge that with it I
can control the whole world, from ants to elephants, from
men to animals, from birds to mosquitoes, by tying them
in the thread of love. I have this Knowledge and to give
you this Knowledge I have come to Delhi. The very same
Knowledge Krishna gave to Arjuna and Lord Rama gave to
Hanuman. With this Knowledge I have come to the citizens
of Delhi and just watch, I will give this Knowledge to
the citizens of Delhi.
Oh! We shoot someone and he dies but is that peace? No,
that can never be called peace. It is said that when a
man kills a snake, the real satisfaction comes when the
snake is killed and the stick remains intact. And I say
that peace will come without any guns being fired. Is
this impossible? No, it is possible, and I am going to
show how it is possible. If you stay alive to see it,
watch how I will make it possible! Not a single pistol
will be made in this world. Lions and sheep, pigeons and
cats will drink water in the same lake, and there will be
What if I am twelve years old? What does it matter? Old
people drive cars and I also can drive a car. What does
it matter if I am twelve? If at twelve I can drive a car
which one is able to do only at the age of eighteen, why
can I not give Knowledge of the Soul at the age of
twelve? Is this impossible? This is possible. In London,
just for fun, the press reporters from a newspaper
printed a photo of mine where I am blessing with both my
hands and sitting in meditation. Someone had given them
that photo. They titled it, "Let Me Rule This World."
Their feelings in publishing this were not sincere, but
people took that cutting and framed it. The premies in
London really appreciated this photo and they displayed
it in their houses. Oh, you think I am small and in this
small age I will not be able to do anything. But this age
is the age of the body and not of the soul. The body is
twelve years old, not the soul. And I have a soul. That
is how I am speaking - because I have a soul. If my soul
departs, I would be dead. What difference does it make
whether my body is ten years old or 200 years old? My
soul has no age! Whether I am very old or very young,
listen to me.
Guru Maharaj Ji is such an ocean of Grace, what shall I
say of Him? How is it possible to understand Him? No
ordinary person can sing about the love within him, about
the love of Guru Maharaj Ji; only a true devotee of Guru
Maharaj Ji can sing about it. If you do not obey what
Maharaj Ji says, what is the use of your living in this
world? Rather you should die of shame! Now Guru Maharaj
Ji has come. Whenever He came before, you did not accept
Him. Now I have come again to reveal the Knowledge, and
still you do not understand me. Why don't you realize?
Why is this curtain of darkness shadowing you? Kaliyuga
will come to an end and Satyuga will start and people
will listen to me and act accordingly. Do you think it is
a joke? The great leaders think that I have come to rule
and yes, they are right! I will rule the world, and just
watch how I will do it. Even the lion and sheep will
embrace each other. Has there been such a king before?
Krishna was not such a king. Rama was not such a king.
There were lesser powers in Ram, there were lesser powers
in Krishna, but I have come to the world with full
powers. Accept my words, accept me. I will give you
Knowledge. If you mistake my meaning, if you mistake a
single word of what I am saying, I will not forgive you.
Those who are shameful or bothered about social respect
ask for forgiveness. I do not bother about social
respect. I do not feel shy of anyone because I have
entrusted the reins of my life to Guru Maharaj Ji.
Therefore, dear premies, the time has come. See how peace
will be established in the world. There will be peace on
earth. That peace which disappeared shall prevail again.
It will come, and once again the world will understand.
So listen to me and act accordingly. Bow down before Guru
Maharaj Ji! Oh, blind humanity, you are like those blind
men who tried to visualize the elephant by feeling it.
You have become like a horse blinded by blinkers. You
have been blinded so much that you are lost in illusion.
The world has blinded you in such a way that the blinkers
of illusion are now around your eyes. You have been
blinded and are now lost in the circle of illusion. Love
flows from the Lord who has given me wisdom; will He not
also give me strength to establish peace on this earth?
How will He not give? I have complete faith in Guru
Maharaj Ji. And the tears that I am shedding on His
anniversary are not because I remember Him, or because I
feel sad. They are because of the power I carry with me.
Right now, I feel such a power in me, I do not know where
it has come from; I feel as if I want to shake the world.
Soon I will leave my studies and spread the Holy Word of
Guru Maharaj Ji throughout the world. How will the world
not receive it? To every single child, I will reveal this
Name. I will give you such a thing, such a Name, that you
have never received before in your life. But come to me.
Why do you hesitate? Mira did not hesitate. When she was
given poison to drink and was told it was nectar, she
drank without suspicion, so trusting was she in the Grace
of Guru Maharaj Ji. If Mira had hesitated, definitely she
would have been killed; but she was not at all troubled
by pride or how her social position would be affected.
She had sacrificed her whole life at the Lotus Feet of
Guru Maharaj Ji, and this is why she did not die. The
poison that was given to her became nectar as she drank
Therefore, dear premies, the time has come for
restlessness to be destroyed and the Kingdom of Peace to
be established. Whether you take it as my prophecy or
anything else, the Kingdom of Peace will be established
soon. Those people who roam about like insects of the
monsoon, misguiding the people, will be set aside. Today
people everywhere listen to film songs and do not find
time for Truth. Here I say that such films will be
destroyed. Those film actors, those directors, those
musicians whose music is causing harm to religions and
satsang programmes, will cease their work. They are
supposed to remind us of God, of Truth, of Lord Rama,
Lord Krishna and Lord Nanak, but instead they only show
stories of boys and girls. Is this the culture of India?
Is this all that remains of the citizens of India? No, I
understand that my fellow Indians still have the same
blood that they had before and have complete faith that
they will know this Name, realize this Knowledge and make
others realize it too. Look, doesn't Guru Maharaj Ji give
you darshan from time to time? It is for you to sacrifice
every drop of blood for Him. Once, Guru Maharaj Ji
pretended to His disciple Shiva Ji that His eyes were
sore. He said, "What should I do? Once when I was young,
my eyes were sore, and someone gave me the milk of a
lioness. I put that on my eyes and they were alright."
Shiva Ji left that place, doing his pranam to Guru
Maharaj Ji and saying in his heart, "O Guru Maharaj Ji,
you are all powerful. What can you not do? You can do
anything. I surrender myself at your Lotus Feet. Protect
me, please," as you should pray in your heart when you do
pranam before Guru Maharaj Ji or His picture. Saying
these words, Shiva Ji left. Now the life of Shiva Ji was
in the hands of Guru Maharaj Ji and He protected Shiva
Ji. When he reached the forest, it was on fire, and the
cubs of a lioness were in great danger. Shiva Ji picked
them up and carried them to safety. The lioness came and
when she saw Shiva Ji, she was very angry. But see how
the Grace of Guru Maharaj Ji works through those who have
faith in Him. Both the cubs ran to their mother and told
her he had saved their lives. "Oh mother," they said, "he
has saved our lives, please give him what he wants." The
lioness asked, "What do you want?" Shiva Ji replied, "My
Guru Maharaj Ji is not feeling well. His eyes are
burning. Give me a little of your milk." And the lioness
allowed him to milk her in a bowl. Where was Shiva Ji
from? He was not from London or America but from India.
That Shiva Ji will always exist and he exists now, but
dear premies, why should he manifest himself? He wants
huge masses to rise first. I do not want to be a Shiva Ji
just to appear before Guru Maharaj Ji. Shiva Ji never
wanted that. He only wants one thing and that is the
Grace of Guru Maharaj Ji who is the ocean of love. When
he became one with Guru Maharaj Ji, He gave him such a
love that he wanted everybody to benefit from it, and for
nobody to be hurt. He only wants this.
So, dear premies, how fortunate we are to celebrate Guru
Maharaj Ji in our midst, to celebrate His anniversary
which was on the 8th. How can I describe the lilas of
Guru Maharaj Ji? Just think - this is something to think
over - how many people, to whom Guru Maharaj Ji Himself
gave Knowledge and explained it at that time, are still
following Him? If I ask you to cut your head for Guru
Maharaj Ji, you should do it and offer it to Him on a
plate. You should sacrifice every drop of blood for Guru
If you want supreme consciousness, you will get supreme
consciousness, but if you want to drown, Guru Maharaj Ji
will never let you. Rather, He will extend his hand to
the drowning. But see what kind of people live in this
world. They accuse the mahatmas of being too fervent, too
strong in their language. "He shouts and screams on the
stage," they say. But no! Once a mahatma saw a scorpion
floating in some water. The poor thing was feeling cold
and struggling. He put his hand into the water and took
him out. As soon as he was out, he stung the mahatma and
escaped from his hands, falling back into the water.
Mahatma Ji picked him up again but he still stung him and
escaped again. A farmer was passing by and he saw Mahatma
Ji do this five or six times, then asked him, "Are you
crazy, Mahatma Ji? He is not going to leave his habit of
stinging. Why are you unnecessarily troubling yourself?
Let it go. Let it die." Then the mahatma explained, "It
is his duty to bite me, but it is my duty to save him."
So a mahatma must do his duty no matter what people
If it was possible for the Lord to feel tired, if Guru
Maharaj Ji could ever feel tired, He would surely have
lost hope by now. Shishupal rebuked the Lord a hundred
and one times. You people are fed up after only two
rebukes, but he rebuked the Lord a hundred and one times!
So if the Lord was to feel tired, He would have lost hope
by now. He wouldn't bother to keep coming. But He comes
for the people of the world and they do not recognize
Him. You must understand and have faith in my words. All
I ask is your love, all I ask is your trust, and what I
can give you is such a peace as will never die. I will
give you such a peace that even the President of America
will bow down to you.
I only need the opportunity. If I have the time, dear
premies, what will I not do! I have so much faith in Guru
Maharaj Ji and I pray to Him, "O Guru Maharaj Ji!
Increase my faith twofold; and increase it threefold in
those who do not love you. Increase it for them fivefold
so that they too are blessed. Look! I often notice that
those people who received Knowledge at the time of Guru
Maharaj Ji do not even come now. Fortunate are they to
have received Knowledge at the time of such a great
saint, so how does this happen? Why are they ashamed? I
do not feel shy of anything. It is not because I am a boy
or because I have a manly heart within me. Mata Ji has
also sacrificed her social position and respect. Look at
Mata Ji! So many Gadwalis have come from Gadwal. What
must they be thinking? They see that Mata Ji speaks -
people touch her feet - she moves around, sits on the
stage, and gives discourses and darshan. But dear
premies, Mata Ji is not bothered by all of this. She says
that until the work she has undertaken is accomplished,
she will not sleep restfully at night. Even an ant will
keep trying ceaselessly until it carries a dead insect to
its home. Brothers, it is a year of testing for us and I
bless you all so that the Lord and Guru Maharaj Ji will
shower Grace on you so that you may succeed.
So, dear premies, tell the people that we are devotees of
Guru Maharaj Ji. Ask them what there is in these things
they are following. All have to forsake shameful things
when they die, so why stay shyly at home, hesitating to
propagate? It is alright for a girl with good character
to stay at home feeling shy about going out and roaming
with boys. But, dear premies, I would like to ask you,
will the world not hear if you scream? They will listen
with their ears wide open. Will that girl who is now so
socially respectable still be full of consideration when
four people are carrying her dead body on a bier? No, at
that time she will have to give up her social respect.
So, dear premies, forget about social respectability, and
put yourself in meditation, the remembrance of God. Just
now the Madrasi premies sang a bhajan. Really, I did not
understand the words, except for a word or two like
gurudev, but how can I explain the wonderful feelings
expressed in that bhajan! What feelings of devotion did
that bhajan pour forth!
So, dear premies, one day you will have to sacrifice your
social respect, so leave it now. What is there in that?
One day all have to die, but what can happen if you die
while meditating on God? Do not misunderstand my words.
What else is there?
I declare that I will establish peace in this world. Just
give me the reins and let me rule and I will rule in such
a way that even Rama, Hariscandra, Krishna and other
kings could not have ruled like that! That day is fast
approaching. So arise, awake, open the ears of each man
and tell him the time has come! Do not tell him that
there was a festival. No! Make them understand He has
come to reveal the Knowledge, that He has come to show us
the True Path, and if you truly give me the reins of your
life, I swear by Guru Maharaj Ji, I take an oath on Guru
Maharaj Ji, and I swear by my mother who has give me
birth, that I will give you peace. If with a true heart
you give me the reins of your life, place them in my
hands, you will be saved.
So, dear premies, if you want to merge yourself into that
bliss like Mira did, you can. Do not think that time has
passed. Now the time has come when people will see that a
greater devotee than Mira has manifested. I do not want
any praise for this. I do not gain any pride by doing
this, I do not want to have a name for it. No, I do not
have this feeling in me at all. If I did, then proud and
foolish people would come to satisfy their doubts and I
would spend time in discussion with them. I will discuss
with those who are sincere, but some foolish and proud
people come to me just to argue. And if I waste my time
on them I will not be able to give satsang, and if I do
not give satsang to people, then I do not know what will
Some say I am a smuggler. Yes I am such a great smuggler
that there may not be another like me! You smuggle cars
and tape recorders and escape duty, but I smuggle the
Knowledge of God which saves everybody. The unrest within
you stops you finding true peace. We save you from it.
Not only am I a big smuggler, but I am also a big thief.
I steal your heart. I am a big fraud because I destroy
your unrest. I raise slogans against unrest and bring
So brothers, now the time has come when I have to
sacrifice my social respectability. You also sacrifice it
and show the people who I am, whose children we are. Tell
the people who is your True Mother, whose devoted
children you are. I have the hope that you are the pearls
of the True Mother, and if you are, then sacrifice your
life in this enterprise. He who drives his motorcycle
into the tunnel of death has no hope in life. He only has
to close his eyes and drive and if he falls he dies, but
if he escapes he gains fame. So devote yourself
wholeheartedly, sacrifice your life to propagate this
Name. You can serve the world afterwards, you can fill
this stomach eating and drinking later, but if you
sacrifice yourself now for the devotion of God, I say
that people will spread out golden carpets for you. Oh!
Sacrifice yourself! Why didn't you hear the bhajan just
now that said if you miss the chance, you will not get a
human life again!
This human life is not available time and again. So,
arise! Now is time. It is time to awake and know the Word
about which it is said, "The Word is the earth. The Word
is the sky. There is but the Word; and all enlightenment.
The whole universe is based on the Word. Nanak says the
Word is in every heart."
So make people realize this Word. If you make others
realize then you will also be blessed. A poet said, "Do
good unto others, and good will be done unto you."
So obey my command, or else you will be drowned. What can
I say about Guru Maharaj Ji who has sent me amongst you
and has given me this chance to serve you? The name of
such a merciful Guru Maharaj Ji is Shri Hans Ji Maharaj.
How shall I sing of Him? How shall I express the love He
has for you? He has deep love for humanity. I cannot
express the great love He has for you. I do not have
sufficient words to express how much Guru Maharaj Ji
loves you. Had I liked sleeping on a luxurious bed, I
would have been doing so by now and enjoying it, but I do
not want pleasure or rest. I only want to devote every
moment to propagating about God. Now Mata Ji will give
you satsang. Listen attentively. Firstly, these people
will sing a bhajan so that you may settle yourself in the
meantime. And look, I have noticed that you all do not
sing in unison. It would be a pleasure to hear you sing
together, then we will be so fortunate to have Shri Bhole
Ji sing a bhajan for us. Sing loudly and together so that
people can listen and hear the words. Then I will return.
Understand these things. Tonight is our night.
