"The Truth and Reality are like flowers surrounded by thorns. It’s not easy to accept the Truth - also very difficult to accept the Reality - before you smell the flower. And the flower is the Love, and the fragrance is the Joy. And that you could see the fragrance today. All the thorns have vanished, all the fear of Reality and Truth has vanished, and now the Reality, which is Truth, which is Love, which is Joy."
H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Talk at end of Music Night, India Tour, Alibag, 29/12/91
