"Father, please tell me something about the occultists. To be frank with You, I do not care for them. Anyway, I am curious to know from You something about them."

"Son, there are three types of occultists: amateur, professional, and God-realised. An amateur occultist feeds the sleeping and snoring mankind. A professional occultist feeds the curious and unaspiring mankind. A really spiritual and God-realised occultist feeds the sincere and aspiring mankind."
