So today I'm going to tell you about Adi Shakti which is a very, very ancient subject. Adi Shakti is the power of God Himself, and She created this world to bring His kingdom on this Earth.
You can imagine, there was nothing but darkness. And out of this darkness She had to create all these beautiful, picturesque trees and all kinds of vegetation. That She did create. But what is the use having all these things which do not speak, do not understand? There's no manifestation with them. Of course some of the trees and some of the flowers do receive beautiful vibrations and they grow very well, but not all, some of them.
For example I must tell you that here flowers have no fragrance, all the flowers they have no fragrance. I've been going round to see if there were flowers of fragrance. But what they do is to grow them big. They are very big, much bigger than you can find them anywhere. But there is no fragrance. While in a poor country like India, the flowers have tremendous fragrance. Even small flowers have tremendous fragrance. Now what is the speciality of the fragrance in India and nowhere else? Nowhere. Some flowers may be having little fragrance, but if there is no fragrance in the flowers that are grown so beautifully, full of love and care but lots of wild flowers also India have more fragrance. What is the reason? They say that the soil of India has fragrance. How can you have fragrance in the soil? But it is a fact...
So now you are born here. You have brought the fragrance, you are the people who are realized souls and you have got the fragrance to spread. So your responsibility double, I think, that you must spread fragrance. Fragrance is something very innate. Even this soil which we should say is without fragrance, the people have fragrance in their character, in their behavior, in their understanding and there is peace which they are aspiring. I don't say they are peaceful but they are aspiring to have peace. This aspiration only suggests they are fragrant people, that they are very fragrant. What is a fragrance in a human being is his nature, his temperament, how he is and how he behaves towards others.
