Mankind can be happy, peaceful and prosperous only through the knowledge and practice of unity; if man's thoughts, feelings and attitudes run along the byelanes of distinction and difference, his happiness is destroyed by fear, suspicion, pride, hatred and greed. Santhi is beyond reach. Consider the One indivisible ocean as your goal and gain. Then, what does it matter which current flows where. The Gulf stream, the Arctic stream - all merge in the self-same expanse. People may be adopting the bhakti path or the jnana path, or the Islamic or Christian paths; they all reach at last the self-same ocean of divine grace. There, all distinctions disappear and are known as invalid. All labels and identification slips drop off by themselves. Names and forms to which each tiny little river was attached fade away when the waters merge in the ocean. Keep the call of the Ocean ever echoing in the ear. That is the inner sadhana for everyone until he reaches the One.
