Editor's note: I don't mute DurgaMata's pipe at the end - Zoom didn't appreciate it! :-(
At 25:36, DurgaMata mentions a book that really resonated with her. The actual piece she read is
"Freedom, absolute freedom, must be given each individual soul to discover its own path. Mistakes along the path of spirituality are not at all deplorable, for mistakes are simply lesser truths. We are not proceeding from falsehood to truth. We are proceeding from the least revealed truth to the most revealed truth.
Until we have realised God and have become one with God, we have to call upon Him as Master, Guide, Friend and so on. According to our relationship with Him, our attitude towards Him may vary. This is of no consequence. What is of supreme importance is that we love God as our very own. In our sincere love of God, we shall be inspired spontaneously to worship Him." Sri Chinmoy, Yoga and the spiritual life. The journey of India's Soul., Agni Press, 1971
