Each sannyasin is my representative.
When I am dead, you all - individually -
will have to represent me to the world.
There is not going to be any pope.
There is not going to be any shankaracharya.
Each sannyasin, in his own capacity, has to represent me.
This has never happened - but it is going to happen!
You are all my successors.
When I am dead, that simply means I have left this body
and entered all the bodies of my people.
I will be within you.
I will be part of you. (12)
