Comment on Article

The Master's teachings did not find favor with the government that had him banished from his country.

To disciples who asked if he never felt nostalgia the Master said, "No."

"But it is inhuman not to miss one's home," they protested.

To which the Master said, "You cease to be an exile when you discover that creation is your home."
