"Don't try to understand what is spoken here. Don't try to listen even. Don't try to have any notion, any hope that we will be free. No ideas about what it is, then the supreme will enter into you open heart and sit down there permanently because that it where it already is."
" Modelled in a bedroom at the sage’s home in Lucknow, India. I had many hours to be with him during the making of this bust and during that time I think he was quietly working on me!"
