However, there should be strict rules framed and displayed to maintain discipline, cleanliness, and hygienic conditions in and around Mehersthan. Mehersthan should have a watchman to look after the property, but no regular and paid pujaris, for every lover of Baba is in himself a true pujari.
This letter has become very long, and I hope that you will feel satisfied with the answers to all your queries. I have tried my best to be faithful to what I have gathered from Beloved Baba’s indications given on points raised by you in your letter and given from time to time in response to such points raised in the past by some other lovers seeking enlightenment from him who is All-Knowledge and Compassion. Hence, if you had tried, dear brother, you would equally have found answers to your queries in the various literature of Baba in English as well as in Hindi in “Meher Pukar,” “Prem Mahima” and “Divya Leela.”
Now that you have received this letter, Baba wants you to make the best use of it by sharing the contents with all Baba lovers in Kovvur and all lovers of Baba in Andhra. Baba also wants you to explain the contents of this letter faithfully to Shri and Shrimathi Kodury Krishna Rao.
Beloved Baba sends his love to you and to all his dear ones of your parivar [family] and wants you to acknowledge this letter.
Meher Baba’s unique leela (interplay) was to tear away the veil of ceremonies and rituals, and he used Meher Dham in Nauranga, Hamirpur, and Mehersthan in Kovvur, Andhra, as his medium. While remaining free of dogmas and tenets, Baba has shown the way for humanity to offer loving and sincere worship to God, and Ramalingeshwara Rao fully accepted what Eruch wrote. With the establishment of Meher Dham and Mehersthan, people were awakened to what true worship is, and their traditional doctrines and religious dogmas and ceremonies were gradually abandoned. They became aware of how useless ceremonies and rituals are, and in so doing became aware of the reality of the Spiritual Path.
