Hail Meher Baba, Sage of Silence!
|Hail Blossom of Omniscience!|
Hail Ancient One of psychic fragrance!
|From above descend, O Mercy, now|
Like Light of Bliss in the Lamp of our Love.

The blinding effect of the flooding Light creates a natural resistance; so the community in which the Avatar takes birth turns despisingly
