If you enter into yourself, you will be surprised -- entering into yourself you have entered into the immortality of life.
You will find your ancestors, your forefathers, and you will also find your children's children, hand in hand, dancing within you.
Life is spread on both sides -- the past and the future -- and the present moment in you contains both.
If you can be just here and now, without any thought, any disturbance, totally centered, in that very centering you will find that you are only a link between an eternal life.
The chain goes backwards, containing all your forefathers from the very beginning, and it goes forwards, containing those children who have not yet been born -- but their seeds are there.
To know the present is to know the past and it is to know the future.
And then you will be able to say: THERE ARE NO GRAVES HERE.... There is only life eternal.
Graves exist because of our ignorance, because we have never entered into our own life.
We have remained always outside of our own life -- that's why the graves exist; otherwise there will be no graves.
I started telling my people that when some sannyasin leaves the body there is no need to be sad and sorry, rather dance and celebrate.
Celebrate even the death, because death is false; celebrate that one friend has passed into the future, into a new body.
But nobody dies, nobody has ever died.
That's the meaning... when Jesus was asked, "Will you say something about Abraham, the oldest, the most ancient father of humanity?"
And Jesus said, "Before Abraham was, I was."
He is not saying anything about Abraham; he is saying, "Even before Abraham" -- and Abraham was almost two thousand years before Jesus -- he says, "Even before Abraham was, I was."
The same can be said... even before my children's children and their children will be, I will be.
I am spread all over existence.
Where can there be graves?
There are no graves.
