1. ComD 1: f. 296; the text has been slightly edited for readability.

2. The diary source (ChD 57: p. 93) identifies this mandali only as “R.”—which could be either Rustom Irani (Kaikhushru and Gulmai’s son) or Ramjoo Abdullah. The editors think Rustom to be more likely since he is known to have been an active participant in these lectures during this time disposed to ask questions of this type. Indeed, the entry in “The Combined Diaries” for the very next day—17th July 1926 (ComD 1: f. 297)—relates that “[t]he details of this explanation [that Baba gave on this day] are with Rustomji.”

3. The original text of TTL/FF p. 83 and TTL p. 83 reads: “Every Master (CHARGEMAN) has to prepare . . . .” (TLD/FF: 15-7-26, p. 2 & 16-7-26, p. 1, TLD/DF: 16-7-26, p. 1, and ChD 57: p. 93 read similarly). This phrase has been expanded here to clarify that the “Master” served as Chargeman in the circle of the Master before him, as was explained in Baba’s lecture on 28th June 1926 (see pp. 104-9).

4. ChD 57: p. 94 contains only the first of these last two sentences: “To be like – little rays is nothing”—though this is followed by what appears to be an underlined caption: “A Persian quotation—”. But the remainder of the page is blank; unfortunately, no Persian quotation has been inserted below the caption.
