We have now proclaimed and pronounced that this is a religion, which is a pure universal religion. When you say Universal Nirmala, it means pure or immaculate religion. And I hope you are agreeable to that. Now when we accept that religion, once we become universal, then we have to forget about our small little caste, customs, our old dead traditions and the things that are not keeping with our spirit. Whatever is comfortable to your spirit has to be accepted as the principle of our religion. And whatever is not comfortable for it, we are not going to accept. So whatever is the way I have taught you, these are My teachings. Out of My teachings, whatever you have achieved belongs to this religion.
