You have been silent for three and a half years. What made you decide to speak again?
Because the world is in a very great crisis. The politicians have brought the world to the ultimate destruction of this beautiful planet. It has to be stopped.
How can you do that?
Just by spreading my red people around the earth; creating more and more silence, peace, meditativeness; destroying people’s old programs of being American, Russian, Indian, Dutch, German; destroying their old ideas of being Mohammedan, Christian, Jewish, Hindu – because this whole earth is ours. All the boundary lines of nations should disappear. Only then is there a guarantee there is not going to be a war in the future. I am for one world, one government. If there are nations, then war is inevitable.
Recently you made an attack on the churches and on Mother Teresa, calling her a criminal and blaming her for the poverty and the anguish in the third world. Do you not believe that life is God-given?
There is no God.
What do all the people in the world believe in, then?
Their beliefs are blind. The very word belief means blind. If you know you know; you do not believe. You don’t believe in the sun, in the moon. You don’t believe in the roses, in the trees. You believe in God, you believe in heaven, you believe in hell – those are all fictions.
Are you a god?
