When the majority follows the worldly line, how will the minority follow the spiritual line?

[Ms. Thrylokya asked:- Swami, I see even retired people are also immersed in worldly works only continuously without spending even sometime for God. When the majority is like this, how will the minority proceed in the spiritual line? Majority influences minority everywhere.]

Swami replied:- Out of 788 crores of world population, only 140 crores in India wash the anus with water after excretion. The majority (648 crores) cleanse their anus with paper after excretion. Why don’t you propagate the majority rule to the Indian minority in this context? It is not the question of majority and minority. It is the question of truth and false. Jesus said that the path leading to Him is very narrow and rarely one will be coming through that path whereas the path leading to hell is very wide like national highway, always filled with crowds of people. Valuable diamond is very rare whereas the valueless gravel stones are many. Majority is valuable in elections because the needs of the majority are important for a democratic Government. Spiritual life must not be compared with materialistic life like the above said narrow path and national highway! This is the reason why God is asking the minority to propagate the spiritual knowledge among the unfortunate majority.
