see it and take it for granted. The most you can do is through your own efforts, or through the guidance of Walis on the Path, to change your angle of vision slightly. You will not take a complete turn, but you will shift your vision. Let us have a demonstration to make it clear. I have not explained this in India. This is the gross plane (pointing to the notebook). This is the subtle plane (pointing to the box). You have formed the habit of seeing the gross world through the gross plane. Now if Beryl contacts a Wali he can't help Beryl to turn about but he can help her to take a step backwards and see through the subtle plane. The gross world is out of sight (Baba removes the notebook). But a Perfect Master makes her jump and she turns around completely, and that is the end.

Baba commented: "There were many workers in India at the sahavas. The work is spreading fast. There are now so many centers in Andhra, it is difficult for Adi to remember how many! It is the same in Hamirpur; there are many small centers there. The boys say Baba's name at school or in the fields. They sing bhajans to Baba on the way to school or in groups. When they have to write essays on a great personality, they write on Baba's life,
