“It matters how one lives”

A woman actively involved with the Theosophist movement had spent many years in India. When she met Baba on the 1st, she asked him if she would ever go back to India. Baba told her she would, later in her life, but then commented, “Truly speaking, it does not matter where one lives. It matters how one lives. Even living in the mountains or caves, one makes no progress at all if one’s mind is engrossed in worldly maya. On the other hand, one living in the world, doing all his duties therein, can achieve much if he is not engrossed in maya and thinks of the Path.”
