1. This quotation translates from the Gujarati of ChD 62: p. 371 the opening lines of a long and wide-ranging discourse by Baba on 5th June 1926 that was recorded in the diary account (but, for the most part, omitted from the typed Tiffin Lecture). Though four pages of diary material (ChD 62: pp. 371-73 and 375, and other pages which are copies and versions of this same content) are all attributable to this same date of 5th June 1926, a date which appears at the head of p. 371, none of it constitutes the unambiguous source for this Tiffin Lecture. Indeed, all four pages have been annotated in the margins with question marks, a marking that in ChD 62 and ChD 57 consistently signifies that passages so annotated have been intentionally excluded from “Tiffin Lectures.” We have no way of knowing, therefore, whether Baba’s comments on “anxiety” in the “Tiffin Lectures” manuscripts (TTL/FF p. 37,TTL p. 37, TLD/FF: 5-6-26, p. 2 and TLD/DF: 5-6-26, p. 1) comprise a part of Baba’s lecture to Gadekar that Chanji chose not to incorporate in the text of the typed Tiffin Lecture or whether they were delivered at some other juncture during the day under unknown circumstances. We can at least ascertain, however, that the topic of anxiety and worry was “in the air” at this time.
2. A version of the content of this Tiffin Lecture was published as “Fragments from the Spiritual Speeches of His Divine Majesty Sadguru Meher Baba. (8) On the Mind’s Wandering in Maya,” Meher Message, vol. 1, no. 8 (August 1929), pp. 9-10.
3. TTL p. 37 lacks this word, but TLD/DF: 5-6-26, p. 1 and TLD/FF: 5-6-26, p. 2 supply it, in the Gujarati script. (The Gujarati interpolation of TTL/FF p. 37 reads uncertainly.) Upabhog occurs frequently in Infinite Intelligence.
