On January 5th, (1939) Baba explained to Jal Kerawala:
Always remain detached toward results. The result of something may be good or bad, but you should be detached from both. Like Ramakrishna, dedicate everything to your Master.
Let not the dirt of the sanskaras of your thoughts and deeds touch you, by surrendering every thought and act at the feet of your Guru! As a laundryman washes and cleanses clothes, in the same way, I remove all the dirt which has stuck to you through your thoughts and actions.
Just continue doing as I say. If you put in your best efforts, there is no cause to worry. My work only I know. At this moment, I am speaking with you; but while doing so, you do not see the work I am simultaneously doing for the whole universe!
