Dying as he did has not only made him immortal in mankind's memory and history, but it has given him a great push forward spiritually.

|21||Jhon Milton||English Poet||Milton was spiritually advanced, but did not attain beyond the second plane in the subtle world.

|28||Mussolini||Political Leader||Five years before, in 1940, Baba had stated, "Mussolini will eventually be killed violently; Hitler will commit suicide." In April 1945, Mussolini was attempting to escape to Switzerland, when he was captured and killed by Italian partisans. His body was brought to Milan where it was hung upside down for public viewing at a petrol (gasoline) station. But poor wretch Mussolini – his plight is pitiable. Literally wiped out!

|34||Rajaji [Chakarvati Rajagopalachari]||Indian Political Leader||Rajaji [Chakarvati Rajagopalachari] is the best among the whole lot: sincere, clever, capable, and sociable and above all, bold enough to face all situations, flexible to adapt himself to changing conditions, though not through weakness, but cleverness. Rajaji is not obstinate or rigid. He is the only man who could face Gandhi and tell him boldly what he feels.

|35||Raman Maharshi||Perfect Master||He achieved God-Realisation.|
|36||Roosevelt||Political Leader||Roosevelt is good, sincere and capable. He came to India and stayed in the same houseboat in Kashmir that I occupied in 1933.

All these great leaders, who play their part in this world drama, will go; but even if they won't live to see the good results of all this destruction and devastation, they have played their roles well to bring about a new era of peace on earth, and hence are blessed. Baba concluded by stating: "All are mine — you as well as they."|

To profess to be lover of God and then not to be honest to God, to work and to him is unpatrolled hypocrisy. Difficulties give us opportunity to prove our greatness by overcoming them.

|47||Vincent cott||Daughter of Annie Besant||She visited Baba who told her, "Annie Basent will be born as a man in India.|
|48||Winston Churchill||Political Leader||Churchill is the man to hold the position and grave responsibility at the moment. But for him, England would have already surrendered to Germany. The boldness, the spirit of opposition and fight Churchill awakened, and the courage he inspired in his nation, are truly remarkable achievements. Churchill is a clever and shrewd politician. He is the spirit of Britain, who, but for him, would have failed. How cleverly he handled the delicate situation about India. He got Parliament's vote of confidence, formed a new cabinet, brought in Cripps and cleverly shirked the entire Indian problem on to (Cripps') head and responsibility.|
- The more you become a student the more are your chances of becoming a teacher
- When a good thought come do act upon and when a bad thought comes do not act upon
- Greatness lies in not overlooking small things
- It is good to use discretion in all things, before coming to any decision, give more impotence to heart than head. The judgment of heart should be began preference.
- Pride & anger, greed & lust are all different from need. You may think I need all that, but this is mistake. If you are thirsty in a desert, what you need a good water not lemonade
- Anger is a whirlwind which blows out the lamp of mind
- Give without a thought of return & serve without thought of reward
- If understood life is a jest.
If understood life is a pest
Once overcome life is at ever rest.
For pilgrims of the path life is a test
When relinquished through love life is at its best.
- Desire nothing except desire less-ness. Hope for nothing except to rise above all hopes. Want nothing & you will have everything.
- Your own religion if put into practice, is sufficient to bring salvation to you. It a mistake to change one’s own religion for that of another, the surrounding and circumstances in which you find yourself best suited to work out your destiny or to exhaust your past sanskaras.
- You surrender your head to barber; when you want to get your hair cut till the work is done, similarly you must surrender yourself to a Sadguru if you want God realization.
- Love can attain what intellect can fathom.
- What is most difficult thing is to be perfect human being
- God cannot be explained. He can not be argued about, He can not be theorized nor can be discussed and understood.
- The more you discuss, God the less you understand. So love God & become God.
- Do not try to understand God through intellect. If you try to understand, either you mis to understand or misunderstand Him..
- God needs not to be confused with intellectual conviction regarding god & creation. Just as head is not to be confused with hair nor the things with its shadow.
- How can one attain Godhood, You can earn livelihood with the sweat of your brow and you can earn Godhood with the blood of your heart.
- Give up the world
Give up the other word

And give up the sense of giving up.
- There are few among the purely intellectual, who can establish a life of obedience to a perfect master, and still fewer still who can maintain it.
- Where imagination ends god is & godhood begins
- Beware of anger. The anger of Sadguru is beneficial to those connected with Him and to others but the anger of an ordinary man is harmful. If someone speaks angrily with you be humble with him. If the humility does not affect him then you should touch his feet.
- One should either be crow or swan, but not a henon, witch is white on the outside but black on the inside. Also always be at distance from the riches and woman of others.
- Three actions are bad. Lust, Anger & Greed. Anger is the worst. (LM-p-2798)
- It is not only desire, but a keen inner longing that in time brings one into contact with a true saint or the master. (LM –p-2780)
- By powdering charcoal its colour does not changes, in the same way whether a man is good or bad his nature never changes (LM-p-767)
- Stick to the truth at all cost, even if it means giving political life.
Do not try force nonviolence on unwilling adherents, nor even try to establish it, since it is already eternally establishes (LM-p-2739) Message to Gandhi on 6th Dec, 1941.
- Do not meditate mechanically. Meditate in form of a prayer and get so much drowned in it that you loose every thing. An Arab has always worn a golden ring. He was great lover of God and when he prayed he forgot every thing. Once he was praying, a thief cut his finger and stole the ring but the Arab was so engrossed in prayer that he did not feel the slightest pain. That is called prayer.

- Majoob: 5 th & 6 th Plane
- Masts: 3 th , 4 th & 5 th plane
- Fire is symbolic of love, and word represents the lower self which is necessarily meant to be burnt in that fire.
- Baba questioned “where is God” to Mandali
Jahagir Wankadia said everywhere.
Vishunu said in the soul
Nilu said it is the heart
One expressed inability it is eternal question
Finally Donkin said in Baba, Baba is God (in Byramangla, 28th Aug, 1939, L M-p-2447)
- There is no pleasure in the uncertainties of life as I know everything. The only pleasure for me is to lighten the burden of my appointed duties. (Baba said when Dhuni was lit on 12th Jan in Meherabad in memory of death of Upasani Maharaj)
- When a perfect master gives charity to poor and needy people, the recipient serves as mid-win for spiritual benefit that accrues to the world including recipient themselves.
- Baba classified masts in 8 categories

- Jamali –mild tempered
- Mahboobi –wears article of feminine attire
- Ittefaki –intoxicated with love or God accidentally

- You live in water not knowing what water is
- “God is equal to MeherBaba said Bundle shah a mast in Poona in 1943
- “The avatar sanctifies the water in any river when His feet are in it.” Baba remarked when he visited Sahastrdhara, a part of Narbada river near Mandals- Jabalpur where people go for pilgrimage while dangling his feet in the water)( 28th Dec, 1938 LM-p-2353)
- “All sanskaras of my circle members will be wiped of as that day. All will be free of sanskaras” (Baba explained to pleader on 8 th Oct 1938 - LM-p-2329)
- There are always 56 God realized souls. Now out of these 56 five are sent to the world. But in every Avataric period, these five become one thus demonstrating the circle when avatar appears in form. Therefore Avatar exists in the heart of these five as one. These five are God realized like the Avatar. All are one, but in avataric period the Avater is equal to five Sadgurus. Thus five Sadgurus make one Avatar –that is long and short of it. Therefore if a Sadguru were to show their hearts you would find me in them. Five are always alive. Babajan left her body, the one in her place need not necessarily be in Poona but there must be five in the world. (Published in Meher Baba Journal -1933 titled “I am the Avatar” written by Meher Baba L M-p-2324)
- Stick to the truth at all cost , even if it means giving up your whole life , Do not try to force non violence on unwilling adherents , nor even try to establish it, since it is already eternally established ( message to Gandhi by Meher Baba , 5th Dec , 1942 L M-p-2739)
- Only Sadguru can alter, divert, or destroy this course that is he can change the course of person’s destiny. This automatically occurs once a person comes in contact with such as Master. Unless all the experiences are wiped out totally. There is no chance realization for the disciple and only Master can do it. (L M-p-1203)
- Fundamental truth of all religion is really the same , because all issue from the source of God but the Avatar consider the time, circumstances and prevailing mentality of the people before the public manifestation He therefore preaches doctrines best understood and best suited to such condition.( part explanation by Baba to Paul Brunton free lance journalist from London in interview about His Mission-L M-p-1347)
- Three types faith
- Intellectual faith
- Faith by sight
- Faith by experience
(Said by Baba to C B Purdom in England)
- To be in Satsang means to obey the Guru’s order.
- Mantra is very beneficial to neophyte on spiritual path particularly so when it is given by Guru. The first & immediate result accruing from the oft repetition or the word or words is the concentration of mind on the subject to be gained. Secondly, the sound vibrations as a result of continuous repetitions induces, in course of time a harmonious sympathy to the sounds of vibrations of higher planes endangering a blissful feeling–a factor greatly encouraging to beginner.
- Life of spirit cannot be a life of uncritical imitation; it must have its basis in the understanding of values.
- The esoteric fact which I want you to remember is that Beloved (God) is more keen and eager to realise the lover (Man) than the latter’s anxiety and longing for such a union.
- My mission in life is to kindle the divine spark of love in all. Love is the secret to remain a secret save for one who receives it and keeps it.
- Accept it as a spiritual fact that every living spiritual master charged with duty effect the surroundings according to the scope of his work. As the master so the atmosphere.
- Saints are as nerves in my body.
- when one remains fully & completely resigned to the Divine will of God, all service , solitude, seeking & surrenderance merely symbolizes one’s love for God.
- True upwas is not starving of stomach but fasting of mind.
(P-112, 156 of sound of silence)
- It is not your love for me that matters; it is my love for you that counts. One who does not seek my blessing and desires nothing from me but to be able to obey me and serve me is my true
- Most persons suffer because of their karma. A few suffer for others. Masters suffer for the whole universe."58. "God is not to be learned or studied or discussed or argued about. He is to be contemplated, felt, loved and lived.

|SL. NO.||NAME||STATUS||BABA's CRYPTIC STATEMENT|
|1||Aurobindo Ghosh||Saint of 6th Plane||Previously, he was a political leader like Gandhi. When he got the breeze of spirituality, he left everything. He did not care for politics. He did not care for independence of India, and he did not care for the world. He cared only for God. And because he got the longing for God, he went on progressing and progressing on the spiritual path. He progressed up to sixth plane. But further progress is not possible without the grace of the Perfect Master or the Avatar. Aurobindo was experiencing the effulgence of God everywhere, and this state was just like that of a 'fish out of water'- a state of great longing, rather, infinite longing for the union with God. Ultimately, My grace fell on him, and he became One with God.|
|2||Annie Besant||Saint||It is all humbug. The Theosophists, including Mrs. Besant and Krishnamurti, do not have even a whiff of the Truth. They say that the spirit of the World Teacher will manifest itself through the medium of this boy in the world, and that the chief "wire-puller" of this show is supposed to be somewhere in the Himalayas.|
|3||Balak Meher||Saint||In central India [Madhya Pradesh], took the boy Balak Meher to be the Avatar, and I instructed him that he should not allow anyone to kiss his feet and worship him because without authority it is binding. When I ordered Mungalananda to observe 40 days' silence and fast, Balak Meher followed him as he was leaving the camp and said: "Heed Baba's orders and follow them! Whatever Baba has to give you, he will give, and whatever I have to give you, I will give." Saying this to him, he returned at once and took his seat on the dais. Somehow I came to know of it and he confessed his mistake. I cautioned him not to do this in the future and treated him lovingly. Mungalananda was in the habit of discoursing on Vedanta to the sahavas group, so I sent him away.|
|4||Bayazid||Perfect Master||Real flowers of humanity —Baba flowers of spiritual power!|
|5||Chishti of Ajmer||Perfect Master||Baba elucidated that Nizamuddin Auliya Bualishah Qalandar and Chishti of Ajmer were all Sufi Perfect Masters. He mentioned that Chishti was even considered to be on the same level as Muhammad; however, he was not equal to the Prophet, but the Qutub-e-Irshad of his time — the head of the spiritual hierarchy. Chishti established Sufism in India, and his tomb-shrine in Ajmer is a greatly revered place of pilgrimage.|

|9||Hafiz of Iran||Perfect Master||There has been no poet like Hafiz for the last 2,000 years. All Urdu and Persian poets have taken inspiration from his works."|
|10||Judas||Apostle of Jesus Christ||Baba said, "Judas served me the best. What he did no one else could do, so he served Me the best. He was one of the God realised disciples.” At that point, everyone started wondering about this and that, and about the suicide of Judas. Baba said Judas did what he did under a veil - he couldn't have done it otherwise –whereas peter did it consciously.|
|11||Kabir||Perfect Master||Baba mentioned other mystical poets who were realized. "Kabir's poetry has a beauty all its own — simple, yet deep in meaning, and interesting. Kabir, by nature, was quiet and mild|
|12||Maulana Saheb of Saikhed||Perfect Master||Real flowers of humanity —Baba flowers of spiritual power!|
|13||Maulana Rumi of Iran||Perfect Master||Real flowers of humanity —Baba flowers of spiritual power!|
|14||Moses||Sixth plane Saint||Moses was on the sixth plane. His seeing the land of Israel but was not able to enter it is symbolic of his experience on the sixth plane of seeing God, but yet not merging in Him. Though, when He dropped his body Moses realised God. I liked this picture very much; it was well acted and well made. It has much to give those who are able to receive it. Rameses (II) in his next incarnation entered the Path; the old Pharaoh (Seti) received mukti, because he took Moses’s name when dying.” Moses was not an Avatar, he was on the sixth plane (Baba told them all this), but Abraham was an Avatar.|
|15||Muktabai||Perfect Master||Real flowers of humanity —Baba flowers of spiritual power!|

|20||Seemab||Perfect Master||In 1958 sahwas, someone was singing a ghazal of Seemab. The ghazal followed “Mujhe gale laga ke na chorna, meri zindagi ka sawal hai.” (Don’t leave after embracing me; it is a question of my life and death). Baba stopped the singing of a ghazal written by the deceased Urdu poet Seemab. Apparently, so touched was Baba by Seemab's composition that He was quiet for a moment and then declared before the stunned audience, "I gave mukti [liberation] to Seemab just now."|
|21||Shams-e-Tabriz of Iran||Perfect Master||Real flowers of humanity —Baba flowers of spiritual power!|
|22||Shuddhanand Bharati||Saint||Baba remarked to Shuddhanand Bharati, "You will do My work because you are now my devotee, and you have the background of devotion and fame behind you. I am the Light of the Universe. Once when you get a glimpse of the Truth you will know me, and you will have that glimpse." Baba then handed Bharati the shawl Chari had given him.|
