Speech is inanimate. It is a
record. Is the tape not previously recorded when the tape-recorder
plays? In the same way, the tape of this speech has already been
recorded. When the circumstances are right, it will begin to play
just as a record begins to play the moment the stylus touches
You may have decided over and over to not say anything to your
husband or your mother-in-law, but despite that you still end up
saying something anyway? What made you say something although it
was not your wish? Did your husband want to be yelled at? Then who
or what makes you speak? It is a record that is playing and once
the recording has already taken place, no one, absolutely no one,
can change or alter it.
You may often decide to stand up to someone and speak up, but
when you approach that person or find others around him, you do not
say a word, but just turn away. Something holds you back from
uttering a single word. Does that not happen? Now if speech were in
your control, it would come out exactly as you would wish, but does
that ever happen?
This science is so beautiful
that it does not bind you in any way and it brings about a quick
resolution. If you keep this science in your awareness and remember
what Dada tells you about people's speech
being prerecorded, then no matter what anyone says to you, even if
your superiors are reprimanding you, it will not affect you. This
should become firmly engraved within you.
You should realize that when a person talks too much, it is
simply a record that is playing. If you keep this in mind, then you
will not fall. Otherwise what happens when you become
'Speech is a record': A major key
in solving your Gnan related problems. It is indeed, a
record. So is there a problem in viewing speech this way from now
on? These days instead of going around hitting others with clubs
and sticks, people use the weapon of speech. Bombs are composed of
words. Would they have problems if they conquered their speech?
Speech is a record, which is why I have exposed its true nature to
the world. My intention is to belittle speech and make it worthless
in your eyes so that is why I tell you that it is a record. It does
not matter to me what a person says, or how he says it. It has no
value. I know that he does not have the capacity to say anything.
He is simply a spinning top. And this here is the record talking.
He is only a top and he is worth pitying.
Quotes by Param Pujya Dadashri: No one in this world can
imitate that which is still (acchad - the Pure Soul, Self). That
which can be imitated is all unsteady (chanchad, the non-Self). The
whole world's worship is of that which is unsteady (unstill) - the
relative. That is why this speech can be imitated (reproduced)
through the 'tape record'. Speech is chanchad (unstill). It can
never have the attributes of the Soul - The Still.
Gnan - Dadashri uses the word gnan
for three types of knowledge: Gnan with capitalized 'G' is the
knowledge of the Self (spiritual knowledge). The second gnan is the
knowledge of cause and effects, life after life, and the third gnan
is the worldly knowledge of human beings; The knowledge of the Self
and of the doer through Gnan Vidhi in Akram
