dictated by Him in response. Meher Baba, in His usual awe-inspiring fashion, takes the most puzzling topic and proceeds, with the simplicity of style of a Chinese painter, to stroke in just the essential lines of the figure. The book also helpfully correlates the terminology of the Christian mystics, Vedantists and Sufis.

 

The background of the writing of "GOD SPEAKS" is as unique as its content. The principal body of the work was dictated by Baba through his alphabet board, His sole means of verbal communication since His vow of Silence in 1925. The task of dictating a major treatise on such an abstract subject as the whole cosmic evolutionary scheme appears staggering. However, amazement increases when one learns that corrections, and even lengthy additions to the final version, were made by Meher Baba after He had given up His alphabet board in October, 1954. At first, gestures were used, then finally, the infinitely laborious process of spelling out words by having a disciple successively repeat the letters of the alphabet until the Master indicated the correct letter.

 

Meher Baba has graciously autographed 498 copies of His book which will be sold at $25.00 each, in order to provide funds for a foreign edition. These are offered exclusively to devotees until the end of July, when any not taken will be offered to the general public. The regular edition is priced at $ 5 and can be had at all Centers devoted to Baba (single mail orders must be accompanied by 35c postage). All orders for the book can be directed to the Center or to MEHER PUBLICATIONS (for Addresses, see Back Cover).
