Question: But I’m not talking about materialism, I’m talking about involvement.
Adano: Well the involvement, this is what we’re talking of the involvement, is not to destroy, is to get into the whole movement. The more we are involved with it, the more we get to touch the thing and handle it and get involved, this is what we’re talking. The Eastern teachers came back to the… out of their caves to get involved with Mankind. This is what they’ve done, they’ve come out of their caves and they’re involving themselves with Mankind. You know, Jesus was an Easterner you know, He wasn’t a Westerner. Did you know that? He was born in the Middle East. So we are kind of afraid to look at the thing about spiritual teachers. All the great teachers of truth were Orientals. We are hoping that the next teacher of truth will be a Westerner. This is not to criticize, we hope that this will happen. Now when Ramakrishna was in the body, this was an Eastern teacher, he was the teacher of a man called Swami Vivekananda who was the first Indian master to come to this country at the invitation of the Parliament of Religions and before he died, his disciples asked him, “Sir, can you tell us where you will be born in your next incarnation?” And they said he looked over the Ganges from the rooftop of the house and for a long time, then he turned around and says, “I have not yet visited the West.” So Vivekananda understood what that meant that to lay the groundwork for the master again, or his master, was to come to the West and the Vivekananda Society, which is the Vedanta Society, has spread a great deal in this country and in Europe, laying the groundwork that someday those students of truth may be the fortunate parent of Ramakrishna whenever he decides to come to the West or born in the West. We will have many masters born in the West of caucasian body.
