Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

The God-conscious Majzoobs are conscious of nothing save the "I am God" state (Aham Brahma Asmi or Anal Haq). They are oblivious of their bodies, which continue to exist in all the three spheres, gross, subtle and mental. Being in the Eternal and Infinite Vidnyan Bhumika, their bodily existence is automatically and spontaneously sustained by their own Divinity. For some time after merging into the "Sun," they actually remain alive in the world; they continue to breathe, eat, drink, sleep, and do what an ordinary man can do.

They are truly the "Living Dead," for they are dead to the world, and yet to themselves are alive for all time. They are the Perfect Ones who have consumed death itself; and about whom Kabir says, "Tan tyage, tan rahe; tan rakhe, tan jai. Yehi achamba hane dekha, mada kal ko khai." i.e. "Give up the body and it will remain; try to retain it and it will go."

The marvel of it is that the truly "dead" annihilate death itself.
