Once I was at Dada’s house. Dada was one of Maharaj-ji’s great devotees. He was such an amazing guy. And I guess I was reverencing him a little bit too much. He just kind of stopped me in the hallway, and he looked at me, and he said, “Krishna Das, I may be a step or two ahead of you. You may be a step or two ahead of somebody else. But we’re all on this side of the ocean of samsara. We’re on this shore. Those guys have gone there. But we’re still over here. What’s the difference if I’m an inch closer to the shore than you are? It makes no difference. We’re all on this side."
