What is life?


A college professor asked Baba, “What is life?”

Baba looked at him with a smile and replied: “Life is a mighty joke! He who knows this can hardly be understood by others.

“He who does not know it feels himself in a state of delusion. He ponders over this problem day and night, but finds himself incapable of knowing it.

“Why? 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; it is born of experience.”
