“In the Path, the most important condition of discipleship is readiness to work for the spiritual cause”

 

Baba’s message was particularly aimed at the spiritual workers who had been invited to these gatherings. He urged them to awaken people to the understanding that the divine treasure is always within each one, but it is each person’s duty to experience it consciously. Here is a brief excerpt:

In the Path, the most important condition of discipleship is readiness to work for the spiritual cause of bringing humanity closer to the realization of God. I am glad to note that through [your] faith and love for me, you have wholeheartedly offered yourselves for sharing my Universal work of spiritualizing the world. And I have full confidence that you will not only inherit for yourself the Truth, but also become enthusiastic and valiant torch-bearers for humanity, which is enveloped in deep ignorance …

The whole world is firmly established in the false idea of separateness, and being caught up in the illusion of duality, it is subject to all the complexities of duality. The spiritual workers have to redeem the world from the throes of imagined duality by bringing home to it the truth of the unity of all life …

The minds of the people have to be completely purged of all forms of selfishness and narrowness if they are to inherit the life in Eternity which I bring. It is by no means an easy task to persuade people to give up their selfishness and narrowness.

Baba then offered some hints of how to go about the work, and concluded by stating:

Through the untiring activities of spiritual workers, humanity shall be initiated into the new life of abiding peace and dynamic harmony, unconquerable faith and unfading bliss, immortal sweetness and incorruptible purity, creative love and infinite understanding.
