I Need Time

[Listen to Asha read this story]

A man in the community was about to make a serious mistake. His judgment was clouded by desire and he could no longer tell what was spiritually right for him.

When Swamiji heard about it, he called the man on the phone. “Please don’t do anything until we have a chance to talk,” Swamiji said.

Reluctantly, the man agreed—on one condition. “The situation is complicated,” he said to Swamiji, “and I’ll need at least half an hour to explain it to you.”

“You can have as much time as you need,” Swamiji replied.

Later, however, Swamiji said to me, “The truth can be spoken in a minute. It is self-justification that takes a long time.”
