The Supreme Witness and the Great Thief is the seventh discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Fiesch, Switzerland. The discourse was delivered in English on the evening of 1979 May 10. This discourse is the seventh chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]


Suppose a man committed so many sins in so many lives; now he will have to undergo the reactions of those actions, of those bad actions. Then for all millions of years he will have to pass through so many troubles, so many pains, so many mental tortures. A father cannot like this, a father cannot think that His children will have to go through so much trouble because of their past bad actions. So what does He want? He wants His sons to give Him – what? The sins committed by them. But the sons will say, the daughters will say, “No, Father, we will give you flowers, we will give you sweets, we will give you so many things; but we can't give you our sins. We can’t.” Then what will this loving Father do? He will secretly take away the sins. He is the great thief.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating that Parama Purusa has been described by so many names like “Nat́arája”, the king of dancers, and "Guńátiita", beyond all qualities and limitations. He explains that Everything is within the mind of Parama Purusa and that He is the Supreme witnessing entity, the source of all, or " Mahadeva". He goes on by explaining that Hari is another name for God which means the great thief, the one who secretly steals away our sins.[1]
