We Came To Bear Witness of the Light

Swami Vishwananda In Chapel at Springen
John The Baptist gave testimony of Jesus Christ: I am not that light; I came to bear witness of that light. The same is true for all of us. We are here to realize ourselves as we really are [to bear witness to our soul light within]. Jesus came, but yet people were against him. He came to His own people and most did not recognize Him.

It is said: *“None is a prophet in his own land.” Spiritual teachers are truly and actually recognized after their time. A few only appreciate the spiritual teacher when he is with them. Then after the teacher has passed on, they say: “Oh how wonderful it would have been if we were there.” You see in writings that whatever is written about a teacher after he is gone is most always good. And of course, then everybody wants to be in that time when the teacher was living on Earth. And a few only want to be around when he is alive. And it is always like that. Then 10 years or 20 years after the teacher is gone, people say: “Oh how wonderful it would have been if we had been there with the teacher!” This is how the mind of man functions.

John the Baptist
If you have the chance to be with a teacher when he is embodied, just take the chance to be there. Then one day you will not have to say: “Oh, why was I not with the teacher when He was on Earth and I had that magnificent chance?

*Matthew 13:57: A prophet is not without honor, save in his own Country and in his own Home.
