“What kind of world is forming now, beyond this winter of war and sorrow, of poverty, pollution and death? In the winter, we foresee the spring. Those with a positive vision of the future give us an image of a world on this planet where all things are given freely, where the highest human potential is fully realised. But we can get to that stage only when there are leaders to take us there.” —Dadi Janki
