Due to speak in Baltimore the following day, Prem Rawat arrived in the heart of Boston's Back Bay to remind his audience of the importance of taking care of their inner, as well as their outer, life.
Here are some excerpts from his talk:
Just as you need sustenance for this body, you need sustenance for your inner self. And just as you need shelter for this body, you need shelter for your inner self. On the outside, you need shelter from the harshness of the elements. On the inside, you need a shelter from the harshness of confusion.
When you look at the sun, when you look at the moon, understand that they are there, but the enjoyment is within you. The beauty is in you. The moon is just a catalyst. Do you recognize that? Or do you become enamored by what you see? I'm not here to say, 'Well, I'm the holy one.' I'm not. I don't have to be. I just know where the water is. That's all.
I'm not here to change anybody's religion. On the contrary, I actually tell people: 'Hey, you want to follow your religion? Then follow it earnestly.' But that doesn't mean you don't need a wall and a roof and a screen to protect you from the vermin that come to steal your peace. You still need that.
