"It is not coincidental that whenever anybody is thirsty for truth, suddenly he has become interested in India...And down the centuries, seekers have been coming to this land from all over the world.  The country is poor...but to those who are sensitive it is the richest place on the earth.  But the richness is of the inner.  This poor country can give you the greatest treasure that is possible for human beings." --Osho
