CHAPTER IV
MAYA AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE CONCEPTION OF GOD-21.

(Delivered in London, 20th October 1896)

I.
Thus India has always had this magnificent idea of religious freedom, and you must remember that freedom is the first condition of growth.

II.
What you do not make free, will never grow.

III.
The idea that you can make others grow and help their growth, that you can direct and guide them, always retaining for yourself the freedom of the teacher, is nonsense, a dangerous lie which has retarded the growth of millions and millions of human beings in this world.

IV.
Let men have the light of liberty.

V.
That is the only condition of growth.
