of the
Final Declaration

Meher Baba

It is really very difficult for anyone to believe and understand what I say, because no one can grasp the meaning underlying my words. It is natural, even for my intimate mandali, not to understand my Final Declaration. But I want you to take everything that I said in Meherabad during the meetings very seriously, because all that I said was the truth; they were words of God, and all the things said must come to pass exactly in the manner described by me.

From the day I declared in Meherabad that there will be the destruction of three-fourths of the world, that a strange disease will attack my body, that I will suffer humiliation, that I will break my silence and speak One Word, the Word of words, that there will be my glorification, and that finally I will drop my body when I shall be stabbed in the back, my lovers and others have been trying to interpret my words in different ways.

Everyone is free to interpret my words in any way he thinks and feels. But one thing I tell you, whenever I say a thing, I naturally use my own "language," and whatsoever is said by me is Truth. But my "language" is such that no one can understand or grasp the underlying meaning of what I say. Therefore, when I want to say a thing, I have simultaneously to make use of your language also, knowing well that you would understand nothing whatsoever if I were to make use of my language alone.

In order to help you to understand my Final Declaration and to put an end to your confusion and worry, I want all of you to know that when you saw me dictate on my alphabet board during the meetings at Meherabad and heard about —

  1. A strange disease attacking my body: it was said in your language.

  2. The humiliation that I will suffer: it was said in your language.

  3. The breaking of my silence and uttering the one Word of words: it was said in my own language and simultaneously in yours, because when I utter that Word, it will be an audible word to you.

  4. My glorification: it was said simultaneously in my language and yours.

  5. The destruction of three-fourths of the world: it was said in my own language alone.

  6. The stab in my back: it was said in my own language alone.

  7. The dropping of my body: it was said in my own language and simultaneously in yours.

Consequently, whatever is said by me in your language, you are able to understand and know what is said; but that which is said in "my own language" is impossible for you to understand, however much you all may try to interpret and grasp the underlying meaning behind my words. Only the fulfillment of events can unfold to you, in due course, the meaning of what is said in my own language.

I therefore want you all not to worry unnecessarily or to be confused. Just believe that whatever I say is Truth and that all which I said in my Final Declaration will come to pass, precisely as I have dictated, by the end of April 1955. And the beginning of all that is to happen within the period of these six months will be effected by me from the 1st of December 1954.
