After a brief stay in Amaroo, Maharaji began a tour of three major Australian cities. On his first stop he visited the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, a modern building located directly on Cockle Bay. Many of the audience had only heard him speak before on television — it was their first chance to hear him live.
Here are some excerpts from his talk:
You want me to tell you the biggest myth in the world? The biggest lie? The biggest lie is that, if you started pursuing joy and happiness in your life, that’ll be the end of your job. You will become a vegetable. You will have no interest in men or women. You will not want a car. You will abandon all luxuries of life. It’s a lie.
The time has come in your life to be the warrior you are. The time has come to put down the disguise of ignorance and put on your shining armor. You — I know some of you — are waiting for the angel to come and rescue you. Put all that is wrong right. And I say to you: that angel has come. And that angel is not me. That angel is you.
You are the angel who will banish darkness from your life. You are the angel that will bring light to the land of your heart. You are the angel who will kill the dragons of doubt. You are the angel that will triumph — triumph over all that you cannot tolerate.
