FOR A SAINT THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE SEXES EXISTS ONLY FOR EVERYDAY DEALINGS, ELSE HE SEES ONLY GOD IN ALL.
A seeker of knowledge asked, "What happens when the distinction between the sexes ceases to matter ?" ShriMaharaj said," How can one describe in words a state which needs to be experienced ? Yet, observe how children build a castle at Diwali - time, and place on it clay figurines of the king, the queen, the minister, noblemen, cavalry, foot soldiers, guards, milkmaids and such others. Each has a specific place. One does not place a solider at the place for the king, nor does one place a milkmaid at the place for the queen. One arranges the figures keeping in mind the distinctions between them. But one does not lose sight that all of it is but clay. The saints have a like frame of mind. A hunter goes on a hunt taking his dogs with him. When he sees a prey, he sets a dog on it. When he does so, it is only a dog in his eyes. But when a bitch litters, the distinction between the sexes comes to the fore for him. Likewise, for saints, all living beings, as an image of God, appear alike. They take cognizance of the distinction between them only for everyday dealings."
