The distinguished Sanjeeva Reddy, the president of the All-India Congress political party (and later President of India), was among the visitors that morning. Baba dictated this message for Sanjeeva Reddy:
It is better to deny God than to defy God. Sometimes our weakness is considered as strength and we take delight in this borrowed greatness. To profess to be a lover of God and then to be dishonest with God, with the world and with oneself is unparalleled hypocrisy. Difficulties give us the opportunity to prove our greatness by overcoming them.
A child’s trust in his mother is complete because he leaves all his worries to her. She has to take care of him. So if we trust in God and let Him worry for us, we live contented and happy. When the leader of a nation puts complete trust in God, God makes him the instrument to guide the nation rightly.
We should think well of those who think ill of us.
