Don’t just try but do your best!


Once Baba wrote to Delia to arrange something very difficult. Delia sent this telegram”:I will try.”

Baba cabled back immediately, “Leave it.” Delia then realized that Baba was dissatisfied and cabled: “I will do my best.”

Baba was pleased and answered, “Go ahead. I will help you.”

Though very few words were exchanged in these telegrams, Delia found them to contain a valuable lesson, and remembered it for the rest of her life., p1594
April, 1934



“Do your work selflessly, and you will be doing it for God. I will help you with my love, that you can do this perfectly.”
(, p3127)
