Maya is God's infinite shadow. To use an analogy, when the sun appears to be setting over the horizon, the shadow projected by any object appears to grow longer till it becomes much bigger than the object itself. But when the sun is directly overhead, the shadow disappears and is "trampled" underfoot of the object, as it were. Thus it is, in this phase of Baba's helplessness and humiliation that He tells us of, that the sun's rays appear faint and weak and the shadow appears larger and more potent than that which creates the shadow seemingly overriding it in all proportions. But when God (the Sun) is at His zenith or mid-heaven at the time of His manifestation, Maya, the shadow, disappears, being virtually non-existent and powerless, and the object receives the full and direct force of the Sun. This is victory over Maya, when ignorance and darkness disappear in the glory of God's manifestation.

Baba said: "There is not time now. After the Sahavas, I will see that the discourses are sent to the group heads and they may circulate them. It is something very original from Me."
Eruch was asked to read his notes of what was stated in the first week, so that the Sahavasis might follow its continuation by Baba this week. Baba clarified and corrected Eruch's notes here and there.
Baba: “It is common to hear that a man has a split personality. One day a man does good actions and entertains good thoughts. The same man the next day or at a different moment the same day does undesirable actions. One day M. is elated and cheerful and happy. Another day, he is dejected,
