"A what?"
"A baula gundhi!"
Of course, I'm thinking that means someone who's dressed in white, who's very pure, who's a vegetarian... "Baula is crazy, and a gundhi is a rebel. Do I have to tell you what the two words together mean? Your whole life you have been a rebel. And what society needs is a crazy rebel. Western society needs prema." What he was saying is this: the whole of Western society has been designed to crush the heart. The doctors are rewarded, the engineers are rewarded, the lawyers, the robbers are rewarded. If you can use the logical mind, you're rewarded. But use the lover's mind and you're punished. Society punishes poets,
we punish artists. We punish these qualities within ourselves.
