at Rajahmundry and all workers, important and petty, were advised to assemble on order from Baba at Navabharathi Gurukulam during the quiet hours of the night of the 1st and morning of the 2nd March.
All that transpired during the meeting held from 9 p.m. on 1st March and lasting till 3 a.m. of March 2nd was of utmost importance to all. Although Baba apparently seemed all the time to be addressing the workers of Andhra State and the Mandali who were with Him at the time, yet it was an obvious fact that all that Baba explained and emphasized during the six hours of the meeting was meant for all in general who loved Baba and for all those who sought an opportunity to work for the Divine Cause, spreading far and wide Baba's eternal Message of Love.

The Apostles and the 'Asahabs' who worked for My Cause did the work at the cost of everything, even at the cost of life itself. So, listen very carefully and be very attentive.
