Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

Life is a mighty joke. He who knows this can hardly be understood by others. He who does not know it finds himself in a state of delusion. He may ponder over this problem day and night but will find himself incapable of knowing it.


People take life seriously, and God lightly; whereas we must take God seriously, and life lightly. Then we know that we always were the same and will ever remain the same — the originator of this joke.

This Knowledge is not achieved by reasoning, but it is the Knowledge of experience.
