Discussing matters with other groups, Baba remarked, (Nov. 1962) “In the aspiration of attaining God-Realization, to go from one saint to another is useless. Roaming about in that manner is actually harmful, because at the moment the world is full of so-called saints, mahatmas and yogis who, instead of benefiting the seekers, do them much harm.”
Warning his American lovers about cults and doctrines for achieving Realization in seven days, Baba remarked, “Talk of Realization in seven days is ludicrous! So long as the seeker does not become like dust under the Perfect Master’s feet, there is no solution to free himself from the net of ignorance. In the whole world, at any and all time, there are only five God-Conscious Masters. So the seeker has to be very careful lest he becomes prey at the feet of a false Master.
“In short, it is of the highest benefit for all to hold to the Avatar’s daaman. Even if you lose everything, hold fast to it. I am the Avatar of this Age!”
