……A chaste man can never get possessed, take it from Me, can never get possessed. You might be very intelligent, you might be anything, you might be a great writer, but you can get possessed. But a chaste man, an ordinary chaste person can never get possessed. Bhoots are afraid of chaste people. If one chaste person is going on the road, all the bhoots run away. They just run away. At least I’ve known many cases but some of them I can tell you, that there were three of them, who used to go by motorcycle in the night about twelve o’clock on a road. And some people who were possessed wrote letters to Me, saying that “Please don’t allow them to go there in the night, because where should we go and stay?” I was amazed. These are the people who were possessed by some sort of horrible bhoots who used to go and rest on these trees in the night where these three persons used to go on the motorcycle and they actually wrote letters to Me. Very possessed people, I knew them, saying that, “Ask them not to go that way, because where are we to live?” And they were like mad, mad people themselves. I said, “Why did you write like this?” They said, “These people go that way and they trouble us.”
And the negative within us disappears with the light of Shri Ganesha. You can see it so clearly in another person. If you don’t have chastity you can never see who is unchaste or chaste, you can not. Everybody just the same, “Very good, very good, very nice person, very nice person”. I mean real possessed people are certified as very good people, in Sahaja Yoga also sometimes and I start wondering, …..Even if you get your Realization, even if your Spirit is working out your collective consciousness, even if you are giving Self Realization* to others, you are nowhere if you have no chastity. That’s like a broken glass which is trying to reflect something; it can never give the right picture….
