1. TTL/FF p. 75 and TTL p. 75 read: “The ‘Bhaktas’ (Devotees) select their own Guru and surrender [to] Him (one seeing the other).” (TLD/FF: 1-7-26, p. 8 & 3-7-26, p. 1 and TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 1 read similarly.) Though the meaning of this final parenthetic phrase is somewhat ambiguous, probably “[the] one” refers to the devotee and “the other” to the Guru. That is, the devotee’s act of seeing the Guru (“one seeing the other”) leads to the devotee’s choosing him as Guru and surrendering to him. ChD 57: p. 73 confirms this sense: “yāne bhakt loko potāno gurū pasand karīne te ne sharaṇ jāy chhe”; that is, “Meaning, the bhaktas choose their own Guru and surrender to him.”
2. Much of the content of the next several paragraphs was published in “Fragments from the Spiritual Speeches of His Divine Majesty Sadguru Meher Baba. (10) On Real Knowledge,” Meher Message, vol. 1, no. 10 (October 1929), pp. 7-8.
3. The “Tiffin Lectures” manuscript sources (TTL/FF p. 75, TTL p. 75, TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 1, and TLD/FF: 1-7-26, p. 8 & 3-7-26, p. 1) all read (with variant spellings): “physical phenomena.” But one of the sources for this passage, ChD 62: p. 531, reads “psychic phenomen[a].” Since miracles, though perhaps manifesting in the realm of physical phenomena, derive from the realm of the psychic (or subtle), the reading in the diary is clearly superior, and the editors have adopted it.
4. The texts of TTL/FF p. 75 and TTL p. 75 seem garbled in various ways in the middle column entries associated with “intellect” and “instinct.” The editors have preferred the texts of TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 1 and TLD/FF: 1-7-26, p. 8 & 3-7-26, p. 1, which read sensibly, and which better comport with the diary source in ChD 57: p. 73. The text of TTL/FF p. 75 and TTL p. 75 characterizes intellect as the “4th shadow” (the other two manuscripts give us no number at all); but since intellect is the “shadow of a shadow” (according to TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 1, TLD/FF: 1-7-26, p. 8 & 3-7-26, p. 1, and ChD 57: p. 73), the editors have emended to “second shadow”.
5. All the “Tiffin Lectures” manuscripts (TTL/FF p. 75, TTL p. 75, TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 1, and TLD/FF: 1-7-26, p. 8 & 3-7-26, p. 1) give us “4th shadow”; but since instinct is a shadow of a shadow of a shadow, the editors have emended to “third shadow.” See also the preceding endnote.
6. TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 1 gives us a sentence fragment followed by another sentence with which the fragment is not connected in any obvious way: “And Mind. It is this ‘Dnyan’ acquired in the 7th. plane that he uses . . .” The other sources (TTL/FF p. 75, TTL p. 75, TLD/FF: 3-7-26, p. 2 and ChD 57: p. 74) read similarly. None of these versions clarifies, in grammar or in sense, precisely what relation “mind” has to the idea that follows. Perhaps the passage means to imply that, whereas “inner knowledge” has a connection with the mind, Jñān does not. But because no reading commands sufficient certitude, the editors have emended in a loose and general way.
7. TLD/DF: 3-7-26, p. 3, TTL/FF p. 76, and TTL p. 76 all read: “The Mind and Body of the ordinary people (without realization) are inter-mingled into each other when they work (as shown in the side figure), and they turn together” (TLD/FF: 3-7-26, p. 3 reads similarly). The diary source conveys this same thought without any reference to the figure: “The Mind & body of you ordinary people (without realzn.) are inter-mingled into each other when they work, and they turn together [sic] . . .” (ChD 57: p. 75). As explained in “Notes on the Figures” (p. 529), in the commentary on Figure 15 the editors feel that the reference to the figure (rendered in this book as Figure 15) in the “Tiffin Lectures” versions is erroneous, and they have edited on basis of the diary source.
