Satara, September 27.

 

"The November Plan is fixed definitely. Baba will be spending November in Meherabad. 800 of His lovers in the East (men from all over India and Pakistan, particularly those working actively in the spreading of His Message of Love), have been invited to Meherabad and will have the bliss of His Sahavas (company) for a week; in order to give the fuller benefit of His Sahavas to each, to facilitate better accommodations and to save time spent in endless translations of anything Baba wishes to express through gestures, for He won't use the alphabet board, which He has given up since last October.

BOOK REVIEWS

 

God Speaks     By Meher Baba       253 pp., 7 charts. Dodd, Mead, ~$5

 

"A Divine Messenger was sent to every class of men."—QURAN.

 

"The greatest things are given and received in Silence, " and one of the greatest blows to Ignorance (Avidya) in our time has just been quietly dealt with the publication of this book of Meher Baba's teachings: "God Speaks: The Theme of Creation and Its Purpose."

 

A tremendous warrior in the field of Truth has spoken, yet, in such a gloriously simple, unaffected way, and without taking part in the religious or philosophical disputes of the past, that men of all faiths, or of no faith at all, can herein find genuine enlightenment. Spoken from the height of Knowledge (dnyan) in the true sense, not of intellectual or intuitional knowledge, but of spiritual Realization, this book wastes no effort or time on comparative re­ligious thinking or the study of ideas. It, itself, is bound to become the cornerstone of whole libraries and schools of ideas of the future. As in the teachings of all genuine Masters, one feels the tremendous vibration of Truth behind every word, that powerful searchlight-elimination of the false Mayavic thinking of the ordinary intellect and imagination.
