Many visitors came on one occasion and they all saluted
Sri Bhagavan with the single prayer,
“Make me a bhakta. Give me moksha.”
After they left Sri Bhagavan said, thinking aloud:
All of them want bhakti and moksha.
If I say to them,
‘Give yourself to me’
they will not.
How then can they get what they want ?
