- When from the depths of his heart, man desires something more lasting than wealth, something more real than material power, the wave of destruction will recede. Thence peace will come, joy will come, light will come.
"In the present atom-age, material progress has nearly reached its zenith, and this is but the shadow of the internal progress in the realm of spirituality.
"In the Congregation I will tell you something very original. After this there will be no more programs of that kind. Do you know why I did assume this human form? During the Sahavas Congregation, the purpose of this Incarnation will take shape. Even if you are indisposed or have some very important work, do not fail to attend the Congregation of January-February, '58."
Baba further told that he had decided to cancel his forthcoming darshan tour in U. P., Andhra and other places, as published previously. He said, "I do not wish that a mere picnic atmosphere should prevail in the Congregation. To make all arrangements to my satisfaction, I need time. The mandali who stay near me require sufficient time to make the necessary arrangement for all those attending the Congregation, including the Westerners. That is not an easy job; so I have to cancel the proposed darshan tour."
In the end, Baba lovingly stressed again the following points. He said, “It is a fact that I am God. I am the Highest of the High. I wish that those who raised their hands should hold fast to my 'daaman' for good.
"There is no need for my lovers to visit other saints. Stick to me even during the phase of `humiliation.' Spread my message of Love to all and become like dust in Baba's work"

The question asked most often about Baba is, "Why is He silent" The Master Himself has made many illuminating statements about His silence, which began July 10, 1925. The bulk of them appear below:
“The breaking of my silence—the signal of my public Manifestation—is not far off. I bring the greatest treasure which it is possible for man to receive—a treasure which includes all other treasures, which will endure for ever, which increases when shared by others. Be ready to receive it."
