OK, I don't know how many of you out there are non English native speakers out there but I find it absolutely astonishing that God will find to use such use of English words in Murlis, is it because there is no such word as "God" in Hindi, or "Father " in Hindi ? Is there no such word as "tree" in Hindi ? How about "birthday" ? Is someone having us on with all this ? When I look at a diety symbol in a temple in India, say of Ganesh or Vishnu or any other avatar, do I expect it to speak English and use words such as "assistant engineer" ?

Is the current Chariot for the PBK (ShivBaba via Virendra Dev Dixit) using as many refined English words as those above ? The above is only a sample, go and make your own list of any one week's Murlis. You'll be astounded.

Whether you are more astounded as an Indian living in India in the 60s or in 2000s, will leave it up to you !

What I am getting at is that if you pick up a Diamond Sutra or a Granth or even a Bhagavad Gita and it has little words of English dotted here and there, it would make you wonder....

There are so many other Indian languages and dialects ...and ... English is chosen ...?

Due to the British presence in the past usage of English words is common in India. Baba Virendra Dev Dixit also uses English words. It is because it is the common way of speaking. The scriptures that are written are written in high style. In the Murli itself it is said that we have to learn Hindi and English, because they are common languages. English is international language. If Baba is international Baba then it is understandable.

As far as I know the Sanskrit Bhagwad Gita does not contain any words from English.
