This is the history of five thousand years. Courts go on growing, criminals go on growing on a greater scale, bigger scale. Your courts, your laws, your jails have not prevented the criminals. After five thousand years it is time to have a look: What is the achievement?
So not only with Sheela…. She has committed crimes of all sorts.
Just the other day we received information from California, from one of the sannyasins who used to be Sheela’s secretary in India. She informs us that Sheela had a bank account in Switzerland. The bank account is in the name of Sheela and Savita – and the account is not small, it is forty-three million dollars. They have been siphoning money from the European communes into this bank account.
The information came once before also, when I was silent. Sheela simply mentioned that some woman had informed the government that “Savita and I have a bank balance, but we are having that bank balance for you. In case you have to leave America we will need it to create a commune in Switzerland.”
I said, “The bank account is for me and I am not aware of it? You never told me. At least let me know how much money is in the account.”
They never told me. She said, “I will find out.”
I asked Savita just two days before she left. She said, “I will find out.”
You don’t forget forty-three million dollars!
And now the account will be used by all this criminal gang. The money belongs to European communes; it was meant to come here for the construction of the commune.
I said in the press conference that we are left by Sheela and her gang with a fifty-five million dollar debt. About forty-three million of the mystery is solved. Now it is only a question of a twelve million dollar debt, and that too will be solved! It will just take time to figure out their books – here, and all over the world.
Perhaps this forty-three million was from the time this sannyasin was Sheela’s secretary. But that was four years ago. In these four years she may have accumulated more money. And the excuse she must have been giving to people is that it is needed for the master.
I was not even aware that I am so rich.
I am the poorest man on the earth – nothing belongs to me. From my shoes up to my hat, everything belongs to the commune. If I have to leave the commune, I have to leave naked! There is no other way. And I wonder how I am going to get a ticket back to India. I don’t have a single dollar. For twenty years I have not seen money. My people have loved me so much, they have taken care of me. There was no need for me…. I have not yet seen, in four years, what the dollar bill looks like. And anyway I will not touch it; it may be carrying aids!
