Anthony de Mello : To a group of his disciples whose hearts were set on a pilgrimage the Master said: "Take this bitter gourd along. Make sure you dip it into all the holy rivers and bring it into all the holy shrines."

When the disciples returned, the bitter gourd was cooked and served as sacramental food.

"Strange," said the Master slyly after he had tasted it. "The holy water and the shrines have failed to sweeten it!"
