play called "The Quest," which told the story of a search to find Baba. None of those taking part had played before, but Baba praised their performance and said that the play was to be published and distributed in other countries as well as here. He also praised the mural highly and rewarded its painter with a loving look and embrace, and even suggested a slight change in one of the figures. To this writer's view, this is certainly the best piece of depiction of Baba which has yet been done—it is even sufficiently good to encourage one to think that the Avatar's Advent this time will not pass unworthily recorded; that this painter, if no one else, will in time register this Advent in real art terms.
