Pierre Monegier: "This small man has had a phenomenal success. We huddled to follow his teaching. Most of his disciples pour into the organization 10% of their income."

Sri Sri: "I am like any other doctor - a specialist who can make people happy. The ultimate goal is, after all, to find happiness."

Pierre Monegier: "Some of these auto-proclaimed popes of Hinduism have a flavor of scandal to them."
