" . . . Be bold and fearless, and the road will be clear. . . . If you all stand by me and do not lose patience, I assure you, we shall do great work yet. Mind you, the Guru-Bhakta will conquer the world — this is the one evidence of history. . . . It is faith that makes a lion of a man. You must always remember how much work I have to do. Sometimes I have to deliver two or three lectures a day — and thus I make my way against all odds — hard work; any weaker man would die "
