Social Animals and Friends is the third discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The discourse was delivered in English on the morning of 1979 May 24. This discourse is the 23rd chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]

Synopsis

Parama Puruśa alone is your real friend. It is your duty to strengthen the hand of your real friend, that is, of Parama Puruśa. How can you do it? Just be a moralist – move along the path of spirituality and help His ectoplasmic structure with that of yours. Be a machine in the hands of Parama Puruśa and help him in creating a more beautiful world and a beautiful human society.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that among living beings, some are social and some are not. He explains that the universe was created because Parama Purusa was alone, and that state was monotonous. He then divided Himself into many, so He could play with His creatures. Anandamurti goes on saying that Parama Purusa is our only permanent friend and therefore our duty is to become moralists and help His entire universe by making the world a better place.[1]
