By His constant remembrance the umbrella of sanskaras will give way to sun shine

On April 22nd, Baba went for a walk to the beach after lunch. Pointing to the ocean, Baba remarked to the group present:

I am like the ocean you see before you – always ready to receive anything, good and bad. All your thoughts, feelings, all and everything, lay them at my feet and […]

Sanskaras – The release from them

 

The release from Sanskaras takes place in the follow five ways:

(1) CESSATION OF NEW SANSKARAS. This consists in putting an end to the ever-renewing activity of creating fresh Sanskaras. If the formation of Sanskaras is compared to the winding of a string round a stick, this step amounts to the stopping of […]

Sanskaras – the accumulated imprints of past experience shroud the consciousness

The acquisition of the Sanskaras may be likened to the winding up of a piece of string round a stick, the string representing the Sanskaras and the stick representing the mind of the individual soul. The winding up starts from the beginning of the creation and persists through all the evolutionary stages and human […]

Power of Baba’s words

After Don had worked several months on the Discourses, on a subsequent visit to Meherazad, Baba asked him how the work was progressing. As sometimes happens in any project, Don was apparently at a low ebb in his vitality, and without thinking he blurted out, “Almost finished now, Baba, but I don’t know how […]

The New Humanity – The new world-culture will have to emerge from an integral vision of the Truth

A hodge-podge of collected ideas can never be a substitute for a direct and fresh perception of the Goal. The new world-culture will have to emerge from an integral vision of the Truth independent of existing traditions and not from the laborious process of selection and compilation of conserved values.

The vast vision of […]

The New Humanity – will come into existence through a release of love in measureless abundance

The New Humanity will come into existence through a release of love in measureless abundance; and this release of love itself can come through the spiritual awakening brought about by the Masters. Love cannot be born of mere determination: through the exercise of will, one can at best be dutiful. One may, through struggle […]

The New Humanity – Material and spiritual adjustment

In the hour of trial, let the thought of everyone be not for the limited self, but for others—not for the claims of the ego-life, but for the claims of the Divine Self which is equally in all. It is a mistake to ignore human suffering as merely a part of the illusory universe. […]

Wars – They are a necessary evil to awaken humanity to higher values

Though it seems difficult, humanity has to emerge out of this dreadful war with unimpaired spiritual integrity, with hearts free from the poison of malice or revenge, with minds dis-burdened of the blows given or received, with souls unscathed by suffering and filled with the spirit of unconditional surrender to the Divine Will which […]

Wars – The root cause being egoism and selfishness requires the man’s heart to be unlocked for new love to be born

The spiritual unity of all souls remains inviolable in spite of all wars; and from the point of view of ultimate reality, it remains true that no soul is really at war with any other soul. There is a war in different ideologies; and this war of ideologies extends to and involves not only […]

Wars – Not an unmixed evil

War can at best be only a means to an end; it can never be an end, in itself. It is, therefore, imperatively necessary for the war lords to search their own hearts and make sure that the ends, for which they are fighting, are a reflection of the Divine Plan which is to […]
