“I know of a man who used to say, ‘God bless you. May you be restored to health.’ His virtues were many. People with diseases which we cannot imagine would ever be cured used to get cured by his word. So I became very interested in studying that man.
“To my surprise, he used to say one word whenever he talked and that word was Tuhi, Tuhi, Tuhi—‘Thou, Thou, Thou.’ If you gave him food, he would say ‘Thou, Thou, Thou;’ water, ‘Thou, Thou, Thou;’ slap him, ‘Thou, Thou, Thou.’ He went through every experience saying, ‘Thou, Thou, Thou.’
“When people requested him to go to a sick man’s house, all he said was, ‘With thy grace be healthy, his mercy upon thee.’ It took one hour, two hours, three hours, and the man would get up. This is the power of vibration; you talk through the mind, not only through the tongue; when you talk through the tongue, there is a mind behind it, mental thoughts. We do not value these mental thoughts enough.
“If the mind vibrates with the mantra you chant, the effect will be tremendous, accurate, beautiful. When you say Ek the whole universe should look to you as Ek. When you say Ong, the spring season and the seed sprout unfold in the universe.
“When you say Kar, the moon, sun, stars, any beautiful thing ever lived by you in your mental thoughts should become a spotlight for you. When you say Sat, you should feel illuminated. Nam should give you existence in your humility.
“Siri, the miracle of this creation, should be acknowledged by you. And after that, you should fall into the ecstasy by saying Wha, and the total merge should happen when you say Guru. If you take every care that verbalization is supported by the mind when you chant a mantra, I cannot describe what you can be.”
