Referring to the spirit expected of anyone wishing to follow the New Life, Baba dictated:

Although the New Life has emerged from me, I am not at all bound by it. Plans I, II, and III of the New Life, with their four phases of labor, begging, gypsy and langoti life, will function as long as I am physically alive.

But this New Life is endless. Even after my physical death, it will be kept alive by those who live the life of complete renunciation of falsehood, lies, hatred, anger, greed and lust; and who, to accomplish all this, do no lustful actions, do no harm to anyone, do no backbiting, do not seek material possessions or power, who accept no homage, neither cover honor nor shun disgrace, and fear no one and nothing; by those who rely wholly and solely on God, and who love God purely for the sake of loving, who believe in the lovers of God and in the reality of Manifestation, and yet do not expect any spiritual or material reward, who do not let go the hand of Truth, and who, without being upset by calamities, bravely and wholeheartedly face all hardships with 100 percent cheerfulness, and give no importance to caste, creed, and religious ceremonies.

This New Life will live by itself eternally, even if there is no one to live it.
