Shortening the Radius is the fourth discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Fiesch, Switzerland. The discourse was delivered in English on the morning of 1979 May 9. This discourse is the fourth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]


The Grace is everywhere, but you know, just like rainfall – when it rains what happens? If you have an umbrella above your head you won't be drenched. And if you remove the umbrella you will be drenched. So in the case of Divine Grace, it is like rainfall, but there is an umbrella of vanity upon your head, that’s why you are not drenched. Remove the umbrella of vanity and you will be drenched; then you will enjoy His Grace.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating that everything in this universe works according to a specific rule. All animate and inanimate entities are moving around the Supreme Nucleus. He explains that the Supreme Consciousness resides in the heart of His devotees, in the place where they sing kiirtana. By enjoying divine grace, they get closer to Him and become one with their goal.[1]

Anandamurti goes on by stating that the Supreme Nucleus knows no divisions and isms. He only wants His children to come and sit on His lap.[1]
