Signs of a saint

There was a saint in Maharashtra who was a tailor, but he was a saint. Saint is a saint whether he's a tailor or he could be anything. And there was another saint who was a potter, who used to make pots, and things like that, out of clay. So this saint, Namadeva, went to see this potter who was making some pots out of clay. And he looked at him. And the feeling that came into his heart is expressed – he was a great poet also, Namadeva – so he says, in Marathi it is, but I'll translate it in English – " I came here to see the Chaitanya, the formless, but the formless is standing before me in the form ".

So to appreciate the other saint he said " Now the whole Chaitanya, the whole all-pervading power of God's love has come in your form before me. I see it."
​ ​
How to address! Just think of it !  At that moment, spontaneously he said this.

That is how you are all saints, and saints have to see that, that you are the form of that love of God's all pervading power. You are in the form of that, all of you.
​ ​
I think that day, you were standing in the rain and sleet with all your children.
​ ​
For a Mother it's too much to see, such beautiful feelings for me. But the feelings among yourselves, the open-heartedness, the Pure love, that filled the whole atmosphere with such beauty. It's not just talking, it's not just writing letters or sending Birthday cards or something like that; it's from the heart, you have to feel each other that you are all saints.
You are different people, you have to support each other, you have to look after each other, you have to understand each other because you are the people of a different awareness living among people who are blind, who can hate you, they can do some harm to you.
​​
The other day I was reading Gyaneshwara; can you imagine, he died at the age of 23 years, at such an young age as 23 years. And the Gyaneshwari he wrote was at the age of 21 years. And what a genius! I mean, you read it, you just don't understand, how could he
penetrate so deep.
​ ​
He described you all, as I have told you many-a-times he has described you as the oceans of, the walking oceans of Ambrose – Ambrosia. Talking trees, and the forest of the trees of bliss and beauty you'll do. That wherever you'll go you'll bless people.
Wherever you will stand you'll be auspicious, you will create harmony, peace and joy.
That's your work, that's your style, that's what you are here for. "
