QUESTION: Which does the Master feel is the most important birthday, December ! or
T#$ %&'T$() $*ery day is a birthday+ e*ery day is the
greatest birthday! ,ou are blessed+ you are seeing your %aster in
the physical body! - am not so blessed! There is a *ast dierence
between the .hysical %aster in the physical body and the %aster
who has transcended into the /eyond! &t the human le*el #e is
at the same le*el as you0it is all 1oy and ecstasy! The %aster
does not lea*e the initiate until the end o the world, but i we are
on the same plane both together! ! ! !
'o happy we are, o course, when we are in the physical
body with our %aster+ we can ne*er orget it! 2hen we remember
those days, tears are shed, the heart bursts! #e is not away rom
us! - know my %aster is with me! ,et with all that, the physical
presence cannot be underrated! That is why, - tell you, you are
happy, o course0- am not! -t does not mean that my %aster is not with me0#e is ne*er away
rom me e*en or a moment! /ut to be on the same plane together, that is blessedness!
'o those who ha*e a %aster should en1oy e*ery day as 3hristmas! -t is only #is 2ill to
en1oy that! To en1oy only eating and drinking, that is no en1oyment! 2e should en1oy being on
the 2ay! - we are progressing on the 2ay, we should en1oy #im inside as well as outside!
2hen my %aster let physically, - used to tell people who asked me) 45ook here, when an
oicer, that soul, withdraws inside his own room, he 1ust engages a boy to run, to carry on his
work!6 'o somebody is carrying on his teachings, his work!
,ou are blessed, you see+ but make the best use o it! %ay there ne*er be a day when you orget your
%aster! (emain in contact with the %aster0you ha*e a great boon0in that case you don7t all away in
lower pursuits! - you see your %aster is seeing you e*ery moment o lie, how can you do anything
wrong8 'o blessed you are, - would say, on this #appy 3hristmas!
The 3hrist .ower is the same working at dierent poles whether it is in 9esus or one o the other
%asters, that makes no dierence+ 3hrist ne*er dies! 2e ha*e to become conscio#s o that, you see!
Truly to commemorate, to celebrate the birthday o one %aster is to li*e up to it! /ut we should
celebrate daily! This is the one thing you orget when you are sitting0i you remember him daily with
an anguished heart, how blessed you become: 2e should celebrate the %aster7s birth daily, at e*ery
moment o breath! ;uru &mar Das said) 4- - orget him with one twinkling o an eye0so much time
0it passes like a million years!6 'o %aster is the *ery lie o the initiate) don7t orget #im! Do nothing
more+ you7ll become the mouthpiece o the %aster! 'weet remembrance o the %aster is the sum total
o all practices! 2e do them only to show that he may not be orgotten in weal or woe! &s you think so
3elebrate your %aster7s birthday daily! #e is not the physical body+ #e is working through the
physical body, and those are *ery ortunate who see him at that le*el! $*ery moment spent with him is
*ery precious because you ha*e got the teachings both ways0one<third by word o mouth, and two<
thirds by recepti*ity! - think that is what - would en1oin on you0become %asters yoursel*es! It is I, not
no& I, b#t 'hrist li(eth in me) ,ou ollow me8 &ter all, or what purpose do you do all these practices8
To see #im inside, to see him e*erywhere, where*er your attention has gone! #e is not a son o
man+ he is ;od in man! =nce he initiates you, #e can ne*er lea*e you until the end o the world!
The attitude o mind o the %asters cannot be appreciated by those who are gro*eling in the
physical body! 'o #appy 3hristmas to you e*ery moment o lie: ,ou people are more ortunate
than me, you see! -7m talking o the physical plane+ don7t misunderstand me!
