(Nov. 1955) You, yourself, are the veil. How will you remove it? As said before, take my name sincerely fourteen times, not less. Go on repeating, “Baba, Baba, Baba!” One day the veil will be torn asunder. I will do it. You cannot have the gift of my love – in spite of all meditation, repetition of God’s name and worship – until I give it to you. When I give it, the veil will be removed in a fraction of a second. I know who is capable of obtaining this gift of love from me. When a person receives it, his lips are sealed in such a way that not even an “aah” escapes. When someone is emotionally moved, he weeps and repeats God’s name and exhibits his feelings, people take him to be a lover of God. But with my authority I tell you he is no lover of God. You cannot know me as long as you do not receive the gift of my love. But if you accept me as the Avatar, you can carry out my orders. And this obedience is far superior to love.
I may be good or bad, but if you take me to be the Avatar, just obey me. If you have the slightest doubt about my Avatarhood, then your homage to me, garlanding and reverence will not only be a symbol of sheer hypocrisy, but will land you in a deep pit! This is not the first time I give you this warning; I have been giving it over the ages. What is the meaning of “Leave all and follow me?” It is to obey me!
