Symbols of the world's religions



Mani S. Irani

Your letter brought deep joy — the joy that comes when one feels His love reflected in the heart of another. Beloved Baba has said that although He has come for the many, He is for the few. We have seen that when the time comes He awakens His few through some outward medium, and the door of the heart opens at the knock of one or another of His many 'hands.'

Although Baba's love for us is as silent as His Silence is eloquent, we find a need in expressing our little love for Him in one form or another — but this is truly best done when we let His Love soak into our very being so that everything we do and say expresses that love as naturally and as simply as a flower unfolds its petals. Hence the part of your letter that touched me was your saying, "I shall try my utmost to put His message of Love and Truth in my day to day life." May Baba's Love bless you to carry it out.

Remember never to despair at lapses or so-called 'failures' — just try your best and leave to Him the rest. A whole span of life, or even eons of lives spent towards achieving true obedience and surrenderance to the One cannot be too much when measured by His Love and Compassion.
