The Starting Point and the Last Point is the fifth discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Fiesch, Switzerland. The discourse was delivered in English on the evening of 1979 May 9. This discourse is the fifth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]

Synopsis

Whatever a man is to do in his spiritual life he is to do – why? Because he is in love with the Supreme Entity. Love is the first word, love is the starting point, and love is the last point. And scriptures have no moral right to create a fear complex in the human mind.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating that everything in this universe obeys certain rules, and rules emanate from an authority. He explains that there are many controllers in many fields, but the Supreme Controller is the only perfect controller.[1]

Anandamurti goes on by stating that disciplined spiritual aspirants follow the Supreme's desire, not due to a fear complex but due to a loving and affectionate relationship with Him.[1]
