“Simple, eternal truths which I want all of you to try your utmost to live”

The following instructions, if carried out wholeheartedly by you, will allow you to help my work of spiritualizing the world. They are not to be treated like long-established sermons, read, heard and forgotten. They are not to be understood in the light of philosophical slogans preached merely for the sake of preaching.

They are […]

The value of constant practice of virtue and the constant abstention from evil for an ordinary devotee

By a special dispensation of GOD, also, the very highest type of devotee whose whole being is permanently focussed on the Divine Beloved, is as completely exempt from the law of karma as the Dnyani [God-Realized being]. Unlike the Dnyani, however, such a devotee is utterly ignorant of this exemption. But the ordinary devotee, […]

“Be good. It pays! … the best way to become good is to serve others and try to make others happy.”

“God is not kind; He is the ocean of mercy. But it is all according to law. And law is not complicated; it is simple. You sow a seed, you water it, you have a plant, it grows, etc., but it is all so simple. Law gives you all this from one seed because […]

Beloved Baba’s Eternal Birthday Message


“To love Me for what I may give you is not loving Me at all. To sacrifice anything in My cause to gain something for yourself is like a blind man sacrificing his eyes for sight. I am the Divine Beloved worthy of being loved because I am Love. He who […]

“Learn to long for the love of God”

Awaken from your ignorance, and try at least to understand that in the uncompromisingly indivisible oneness, not only is the Avatar God, but also the ant and the sparrow, just as one and all of you are nothing but God.

Liberation: The way to get liberated from these bindings is through love


Christ said, “Leave all and follow me.” What did that mean?

Don replied, “I assume it means literally to leave everything and follow Christ within yourself.”

Then Baba continued:

But the meaning behind it was not to leave all these things; not to renounce the world, it was to obey. Leave all thoughts, […]

Liberation: Every action binds us

Don Stevens read The Law of Karma a second time, and Baba asked him again to give the gist of it. Don replied, “Baba, I understand from this that it is quite true that the entire universe is governed by laws. The material world may be less understandable in terms of being governed by […]

What is the difference between destiny and fate or chance?

On Tuesday, 4 May 1937, in the living room before breakfast, Malcolm asked Baba, “What is the difference between destiny and fate or chance?” Baba answered:

Destiny is the divine law or will which guides us through our numerous existences. Every soul must experience happiness and unhappiness, virtue and vice, from the […]

“Humanity will receive the Light in different degrees proportionate to each one’s receptivity”

After the Avatar’s manifestation, humanity will receive the Light in different degrees proportionate to each one’s receptivity. Those out in the open will experience the full light of the sun; those holding umbrellas over their heads will receive less; and those who remain closeted in their houses will get even less.

This […]
