“People must give and then receive”


On Saturday, 21 August 1937, William Henry Warner, a well-known American novelist, came to see Baba.

Warner asked Baba, “For a long time, I have been trying to find out the actual definition of love. Can you tell me what it is?”

Baba responded, “Love means a life of giving without expectation of receiving any reward.”

Warner was impressed with this pithy epigram, and Baba continued, “People must give and then receive. First give and then you will have all. But instead, people want to first have all and then think of giving. This is not the right way.”
