"I am not here to convert you from your faith, nor do I want to create any followers. I do not belong to any religious sect, nor do I seek donations. What I say may hurt your feelings and your beliefs, and sound like poison to your ears, but for the religion I was proudly born in and the country that I so dearly love, I will truthfully speak my mind, until the day I die"
- Swami Sacchidanand
