On a few occasions I have tried to perform a puja to Him in the kirtan hall, holding a lighted lamp in front of Him. He took the flame from my hands and started to wave it in front of my face, teaching me that He only resides inside myself.
Once again I was doing pranam to Him today when Baba asked me: ‘To whom are you doing pranam?’ I am your own Self.’ On another occasion I was walking in the jungle with Him and I stumbled on a stone because I was intent on looking at His feet. He turned towards me and said: ‘Look inside; outside there are many difficulties.’
