In 1927, two years after beginning his silence, Baba had stopped writing. However, he had continued to read his mail, and occasionally the newspapers, himself. But after his return from the mast trip at the end of November 1948, Baba gave up reading anything. From then on, if he wished to go over any letter, telegram or note, it would be read out to him.

Three types of Resigners:
1. Those who are so completely resigned to the will of the Master that even the one question of how, why, or when never even enters into their minds. Hafiz says: “Do not breathe a word smacking of why and wherefore, because the blessed disciple accepts heartily every word that the Sultan (Master) utters,” (meaning, he is the chosen disciple who obeys the Master in everything and anything with all his heart).
2. Those who do what the Master asks at all costs, sacrificing everything, not asking for reward, but do it under compulsion of surrenderance to the Master’s will.
3. Those who do what the Master asks at all costs but expect reward.
