of 1,000 copies of the book, "Sparks of Truth" presented by Kitty Davy and Delia De Leon on behalf of the Western disciples. Baba said He was very happy with the gift. He mentioned the imany pamphlets printed by Easterners on sale in the stalls in front of Guruprasad.

 

Eruch said Baba had called all the Western men (yesterday) for half an hour just to have His embrace, "Then He gave its men 2 hours, when you women were not here."

 

Baba began: "What is the aim of life? it is to see God and become one with God. If God is, then we must see Him. That is our sole aim. There are different ways of seeing God, called Yogas. Some try to see God through meditation and concentration on the Absolute within. That too is a very long process. And this process of concentration does not help you to rip open the veil that separates you from the Beloved and allow you to see God within.

 

“There are many yogis all over the world. Many of them try to gain bliss through extraneous means and become drug addicts; many of them get addicted to smoking hemp. After one or two puffs they get a feeling of elation, then the effect wears off. Different types of yogis try to see God through different means, and naturally, they get different experiences. But these are in fact only different kinds of hallucination. There are many fakes who dupe people and advertise their so-called experiences, although they are nothing but hallucinations. People flock around them to have some experience also, and thus they have their own circle of followers. They pass around a pipe of drugged tobacco, and then their followers smoke these pipes and begin to have 'experiences' too!

 

"One in a million, through intense concentration, does see God within himself; then for him nothing exists any more; he sits absorbed within. Even a yogi who is genuine and who gets absorbed in this real experience cannot reach the Goal, the aim of his life, unaided by the Perfect Master. It is all made so complicated, and books on Yoga have made it still more complicated."

 

He continued: “No amount of reading or understanding can lead to God-Realization. You must be made to see God; when you get that conviction through sight by the Grace of a Perfect Master, then you are ready for Union with God." To Anita He added, "Do you want to be one with God?"

 

Anita replied, "I just want to see You!"
