BABA desires all those who love him to:

 

1) Observe fast and complete silence from 5 A.M. on July 10th, 1954, to 5 A.M. on July 11th,      1954 ( Eastern Standard Time, U.S.A.).

 

2) To try to keep pure in thoughts and actions during this period of silence.

 

3) To repeat inwardly any one Name of God as frequently as possible during the 24 hours of      fast and silence.

 

During this period of fast, tea or coffee is permitted thrice. Drinking water may be freely taken.

 

Note: July 10th, 1925, was the date when Meher Baba commenced his Silence, for spiritual reasons, which continues to this day.

 

  

 

BOOK REVIEWS

 

The Mind of Light , by Sri Aurobindo. E. P. Dutton & Co. $2.75.

 

Sri Aurobindo, in his posthumous new work, "The Mind of Light," gives us his conception of the spiritual processes and evolutionary forces at work in producing a new race of earth inhabitants, which he calls a new humanity." It is a magnificent vision and promise of a divine life in a divine body on earth; the truth-conscious aspect of the Supreme Reality, which he terms "Supermind" is the transforming power of the mind and body. Supermind or Truth-consciousness does not have to arrive at knowledge, light, beauty, bliss and perfection . . . it intrinsically possesses it—“Supermind is an eternal reality of the divine Being and divine Nature."

 

The growth of consciousness is assumed to be the central motive of evolution, and as matter, life and mind have manifested on earth, so must Supermind, acting overtly and not concealed as it is now. Truth-consciousness is drawn into the world as the "Mind of Light." This "Mind of Light" is a subordinate action of Supermind, stemming from it and inferior to it “ . . . the Mind of light is indeed the last of a series of descending planes of consciousness in which the Supermind veils itself . . . but its essential character remains the same: there is in it an action of light, of truth."
