"New Life Baba 1"

This is one of two images which use Meher Baba's words about the New Life. The image of Baba is the same in the two images; the background and the text are very similar but different.

Often I will create different versions of an image. Usually I discard all but one of the versions. However, sometimes I really like two versions and keep both.

The text in both images can be found in Lord Meher pg. 3555

    But this New Life is endless, and even after my physical death 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 covet 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 one hundred 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.
