Ourselves. We offer our humble prayers to:_ t_he Parabrahmam and invoke the blessings_()£ our Master, Sri. Meher J3abaji, b_efd're sending this Quarterly to the world. -< We respectfully thank our dear Babaji, for ha.v· ing permitted us to issue this leaflet, for the present, every quarter, and for having kindly blessed it. This paper will have nothing to do with Politics. Its purpose is to spread far and wide the Divine Idea of Universal Brother~ hood through "Meher League," and to a

small extent, supplement the tremendous.; spiritual work done by " Meher Message. " Our religion is the religion of Love. We shall have nothing to do with the pernicious dogmas and injurious traditions of any Organisation. We shall ever pray for the spiritual uplift of every being in this world. We shall ever preach against the many social evils, which have brought our Motherland to the present condition. We shall also try to make (Babaji willing) Mother India the Spiritual Mother of the World. May Babaji bless this movement! Om Tat Sat I!

The number of His Holiness' devotees and admirers is very large, Rnd includes members ·of all castes ·and creeds . .. B ut His Holiness has no concern with .their beliefs or activities.

His Holin ess never gives any order or in structio ns

to any one in any matter of social, political, or religious propaganda, ~except in

the matter,of one~s efforts ,for ·bis .Gw:n spiritual upliftm~Jit... It is· therefore necessary to make it quite clear that the part that is bein g taken by some of His ·disciples in the prese nt C.

A DENIAL AND AN EXPLANATION FROM HIS · HOLINESS SRI MEHER BABA --:o:--

lN.

B. I have received from Bro. F. H. Dadachani j i, the Private Secretary of His Holiness Sri Sadguru .Meher .Bab<J., under .His instructions, a communication, for publication, which clearly shows that Babaji has nothing to do with the step taken by some of His disciples in the Civil Disobedience movement, or any organisation. ·Extracts from it are published below for immediate circulation for obvious reasons. The full communication will be published in the September issue of Meber Gazette; C. V. Sampath Aiyengar. J A statement is published in the April number of •Meher Message' to the effect ·that certain staunch devotees or rather disciples of His Holiness Sri Meher B tb:t ~re taking an active p1.rt in the present Civil Dis0beclience movement ..... In order that no misunderstanding may be created in the minds of the public with regard to His Holiness' spiritual teachings or workings by the . publication of the above statement, it is thought necessary to publish a brief explanation that His

Holiness has no connection or concern whatever with a,ny,political, social or·religious ques· tion Gr movement. His Holiness is no doubt spiritually concerned with every indi vidual soul, action and movement, and the universe itself, while keeping Himself externally aloof from the same.... All are equal in His eyes, and the only aim of His working, life and teachings is to effect moral and spiritual evolution and emancipation of ·individual souls from the bondage of Maya and to make them know their inner and real selves. Such Sa.clgurns work only for the Spiritual upliftment of the whole U!liverse, and with this end in view, they occasionally make use of such means as observance of silence, solitude and fasts, but not for their own selves as they do not need them being themselves God-realized persom.lities, and hal'.ing the consciousness and experience of their highest state every moment. The present being a critical and an extraordinary time for the universe,' His Holiness Meher Baba has alc;o commenced His inner working through these means of silence, solitude and fasts. Silence He has been <1lready observing for the last nearly five years, during ' Wh.i ch period, He has also observed several fasts. He has no'v retired in seclusion since the 15th of May current in Panchgani...... During His seclusion, He will cease to have any connection whatever with the outside ·world......... His Holiness IS doing all this only for


2 "Our Master '' :

By the Editor.

India, the great land of Saints, is never _poor for want of true Saints, and the greatest of them is the God-realised Personage, Sri Sadhguru Meher B aba. Born in Poona, on the 25th of February 1894, he is a Zoroastrian by birth, but, by creed and by 'the reason of his vast sympathies, "a citizen of the world." After passing a period of happy and active childhood, characterised by righteousness, dutifulness, love of truth and self-control, he passed his Matriculation Examination in 1911, and joined the College in the same year; but, left it soon, as a result of his spiritual enlightenment. In 1913 He came into ·contact with a 'Kutub.' H azar at Baba Jan, and, under her able guidance, attained spirit· ual perfection. Thoug h he became Godrealised before he was 21 and a conscious Sadhguru before he was 27, still he works for the spiritual wellbeing and progress of the world. His religion is tha t of Love and Universal Brotherhood; a nd with the purpose of spreading this relig ion far and wide he has started an institution, "Meherashram," wherein are imparted both secular and spiritual instruction freely. His objects are to abol ish the m ost. pernicious caste-system, to elevate the so called " Depressed classes" and to establish equ:llity between man and woman. Such is the Master, who sta nds for Love and Truth and who has come to lead Mother India in her incessant strug gle for not only Social but also Spiritual freedom. Let, us heartily gather under His banner and do His work, which is the Path of Evolution:

Sayings of our Master. 1- No matter however vicious qualities one may be possessed of, one should neither hesitate to come nor feel any shame in coming before Me. I am for all. The wicked have as much right to approach Me as the virtuous. Indeed, My main business is to improve the vicious. , (Feb Issue. "Neher Message.) ~. You surrender your head to a barber, when you want to get your hair cut, till the work is done. Similarly, you must surrender yourself . to a Sadhguru, if you want God-realisation: (June Issue (1929) Meher Message).

Editorial:

Untouchability.

"Sages look equally on a brahmin-humble and learned-, a cow, an elephant, a dog and even an outcaste," for, ." Oh Arjuna I The Lord dwelleth in the hearts of all beings ! " Thus, the notes of Love and E quality, in clarion tunes, was struck by my Lord, Sri. Krishna, in the battlefield of Kurukshetra. This message of Truth was not only meant for deluded Arjuna, but it was given for all people, in all places, at all t imes. But, alas, most unfortunately, it has been lost in the wilderness of time and forg otten by sheer ignorance. Living in civilised times, we should not, for a moment, forg et that India once s tood for fa ith , p urity, equality, love and Sacrifice; and we must not therefore let her grovel, as she d oes no w, in tJhe impure dust of social and religious ine quali tie~, nor shall we submerg e her in superfluous conventions and stigmatising arti ficialities. Without any shame, we must admit that the most ignoble and unjust treatment given to our depressed brethren bespeak s , not in the least, of our love to guard the 'Sa natan a Dharma,' but m akes a clean breast of our pride and rapacity to withhold the a utocra tic authority, which was ill established long ag o. We have g one to th e meanest extent of robbin g the ' untouchables' of ev en their rud imenta ry and n a tural ri g hts: They · should neither use our wells and-in some places-even road8, nor should they enter our houses and templeshowever clean and pure they may be! Their very shadow, much more th eir touch, pollutes us 1! Instead of educating them in all phases of life and elevating them, which is our Duty we stamp them down with the utmost cruelty, which is unsupported by re ason and even unwarranted by our religion. Let us at least now set out to redress their grievances and g rant th em th eir social liberty and equality, in the attempt of obtaining which they are determined to win or die. Let us not be led a way by the ing enious Sanatanists, whose reasons for their sophistical attitude towa rds the 'untouchables' are both absurd and ridiculous. My Lord, Sri Sadhg uru Meher Babaji, h::ts come now to put d own all these inept social evils and establish social equality. Let us-havin g Him as our Guide-lead Mother India from the gloom of social de· gradation to the dawn of social emancipa.• tion !!


3 Sayiags of Sftgea. 1. Imparting knowledge to the ignorant and light to the benighted, rise, oh mortals , like unto the dawn: (Yajur Veda 29-27) 2. Do not spend your thoughts upon other people, nor pry into the talk, fancies and projects of another. (Marcus Aurelus A. D. . 121-180). 3.

Modesty is a rare quality. Modesty adorns a woman more than any o~rnaments, while to men, it serves as a weapon. A man or a woman, who is devoid of this divine quality, is like a beast. Some wiseacres are of opinion that it is an exclusive attribute of women .and that men need not be modest. It is umioubtedly a serious mistake. Whatever that is good for women should necessarily be useful to men. It is because some persons entertain such unjust and faulty views that our Motherland has come to this deplorable condition. We may again say that Modesty affords all fame and success to a man; while it is this quality that ennobles a woman and makes her shine, like a Kohinoor, in the midst of her sex. For example, Schopenhaur, a German philosopher and God· blessed man, modestly exclaimed, at one time, thus: "vVhat a fool I am ! God ! When will You remove my ignorance." It is his modesty and nothing else that endears him to us even today. Hence, cannot we unhesitatingly say that it is modesty that gives us renown and happiness in this world and reserves for us a high place in the next?

To The Editor:

17-4-30

Meher Ga iette. J)ear Editor, It would be for us, sons and daughters of India, to take the beam out of our own ·eyes in the matter of our social evils, which have brought us to the pres~nt unfortunate condition, · before endeavounng to remove the mote from the eye of another. I am strongly of opinion that until we solve sanely our question of marriage and married -life, we are doomed to eternal perdition, We have forgotten all the splendid rules of life, laid down in our Vedas. But, when the vital question of marriage comes in for discussion, our old Brahmin wiseacres howl like wolves that their religion, is in danger! Will those, who foolishly opposed the Sarada Act in the . Assembly, and those, who have been crying hoarse against it, since it was passed, place their right hand on their breast and swear, " we are all acting according to the rules of Sanatana Dharma?" 99 per cent of them dare not do so. These pseudo-Sanatanists are the curse of our dear Motherland. Our Great Lawgiver Manu says in unam. biguous language; " Let him choose for his wife a wotnan, who has a graceful figure without , any deformity, wh<;> has a pretty name, who walks gracefully hke a sw~n or an elephant who has fine hair and lovely teeth and wh~se body is exquisitely soft." The word in the Sloka is "Striyam " (3. 10) •' Stri" can J: ~-"·"'{ mean a girl. After a careftir~tudy of this subject, Swami Dayananda Saraswathi wrote: ''The best time for marriage for a girl is from the sixteenth to the twenty-fourth year of her life and for a man, from the twenty-fifth to the forty-eighth yoar. The marriage of a girl of sixteen with a man of twenty-five years is called ' Inferior marriase : ' Of a ~irl of

eighteen • or twenty wit~ a m~n ~f thi~~y-~ve or ·forty IS called ' medlUm marrtage: · Of a girl of twenty-four with a man of forty-eight is called ~- superior marriage.' Are our-,wise--. acres Superior in knowledge to the Swatpi ? They will unhesitatingly say 'ye~.·-

1 shall send you a few artiCles, which will . clearly show that our . wise~ ancestors never sanctioned child or girl-marriages, and that1 this pernicious custom came into vogue on account of political reasons in tlte dark ages of our country. Leave alone the Hindus. What do you say about the Muhammadan marriage, cele-. brated on the 25th of March 1930, between, the six year old son of the Maharaja of Mahammadabad and the four year daughter of Mr. Wazir Hussain, the chief Judge of Oudh Chief Court. These gentle men ought . to be congratulated on their splendid performance!! Dear Editor, you are the fittest person to devote all your time and energy towards the · amelioration of our children in this matter. Till Mother India solves her marriage problem satisfactorily, she is destined to suffer materially and spiritually. Yours truly, (Sd.) C. V. Sampath Aiyangar, Prl. Sub Judge, Guntur.
