The East Looks at Meher Baba

I. The Silent Awakener

By YOGI SHUDDHANANDA BHARATI

 

I. Spiritual ICBM

 

We are living in the days of nuclear dynamics and space technology. Sputniks are flying today to challenge the moon. The helium Zeta will challenge the sun tomorrow. The science-brain soars above ultrasonic regions. Scientific intellect has advanced to artificial copying of immortal Nature. Poor science in the hands of the brute in man forges weapons of new danger to humanity. From gun to cannon, from cannon to tank, from tank to bomb, from air bomb to atom bomb, hydrogen bomb, rocket bomb, cosmic ray, cobalt bomb—the weapons of mass murder are ever increasing and ever adding to the egoistic vanity and ambition of the repressive brute in man. The latest invention of the war-mongering scientific intellect is ICBM—Inter-Continental-Ballistic-Missile. This missile is able to strike down all strategic points within 5000 miles in fifteen minutes. It does its work with pinpoint accuracy. Science has created a crisis which threatens the world with a colossal destruction of humanity. Missiles propelled by the nuclear Ramjet can surprise any part of the world at any moment. The first blow shall sweep out years of human construction and leave hideous ruins in the place of beautiful cities and busy factories.

 

Is there a way out of this tragedy? Yes. It is the application of the spiritual ICBM. What is that? It is INFINITE CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE BELOVED OF MANKIND. It is INNER COMMUNION WITH THE BLISSFUL MASTER—ICBM!

 

We have gathered today in the presence of such a beloved Master and with Him we commune in our hearts.

 

II. Creative Silence

 

We are living in the days of mechanized industry amidst din and noise and "gupguping" smoke of factory chimneys. Our streets are torn by the rumbling motor noise and "vikarme" of the mike. Tram, train, bus, cinema, radio, factory and politics are shattering peace by the din and bustle of hellish mechanical noises. But the current that moves all these noisy machines makes no noise.
