Amongst the different faculties of this globe in the
physico-psycho-spiritual realms, mental faculties are of
maximum importance. These faculties may be categorized into
four main groups or offshoots. The first mental faculty is
that the mind thinks, the mind discovers and invents newer
modes of thinking, the mind thinks with concentration, that
is, the mind meditates. Regarding this faculty of thinking,
if it is done in a methodical way, the result is certainly
positive, a negative result is achieved only in certain rare
cases. But if it is not done in a methodical way, the
general result is negative, only in very rare cases do we
get a positive result. So our students, our boys and girls,
our ladies and gentlemen should be taught how to think in a
methodical style, otherwise there will be wastage of mental
potentialities. We do not want such wastage to take place in
this age of science. Regarding thinking with concentration,
that is, meditation, it is another still subtler science.
Meditation should be performed knowing fully well the
location of different glands and sub glands and also the
different cells in the human brain. And people should not
only know the location of these glands and sub glands, they
should also be acquainted with their respective systems of
hormone secretion, otherwise their meditation will not
produce any fruit. So for this system of meditation,
knowledge of biology is essential. Human beings have yet to
invent the way of methodical thinking, and methodical
meditation based on the location of different concerning
cells, glands and sub-glands, and their secretion of the
requisite quantity of hormones. The second mental faculty is
that the mind remembers, mind discovers or invents
different systems of remembering or memorizing. While
remembering, the mind should know how to associate the
object to be remembered with psychic pabula of a similar
nature. And human beings should know how to select these
associated psychic pabula which have similarity of proximity
to the object that they want to remember. In case of
memorizing there should be both a physical and a psychic
approach, and to some extent a spiritual approach. For the
purpose of memorizing, we should avoid the use of different
sub-glands producing inimical hormones. The systems of
memorizing should be associated with the qualities and roots
of the different plexii of the human body. The third faculty
which human beings should know is the process of
transmutation and diversion of different psychic pabula in a
scientific manner. This process of transmutation and
diversion may vary from human to human, from one group of
human beings to another, from animal to animal, from bird to
bird. And for this, there should be a specific training
course; and we must start this type of psychic training
centres in various important places in the world. Such
psychic training centres teaching how to transmute, how to
divert different psychic pabula, should be started
immediately not only for human beings of different psychic
strata but for all living beings. These training centres
should be classified into different types, and run
separately for different psychological structures for
differently developed, developing and underdeveloped living
beings. For instance, there should be one type of
training academy for developed animals like monkeys, dogs,
chimpanzees and orangutans, another for developing animals,
and still another for underdeveloped animals. Regarding
plants and animals, there are different strata, but these
plants and animals must all be metazoic structures with
clear and distinct `I-feeling’, not guided by mere
instincts. In various living beings with ordinary
protoplasmic structures, there is life and movement, but all
their actions are goaded by instinct, there is little or no
`I-feeling’. The training centres should be only for those
metazoic structures whose `I feeling’ is clear and distinct.
And what should these training centres be for? For the
transmutation and diversion of psychic pabula. This may be
considered as the third psychic faculty. The fourth one is
creating more scope for rationality and rationalisation in
the different planes of existence, physical, psychic and
spiritual. If we want to encourage rationality and
rationalisation, in the physical level we must avoid thought
waves which originate in the physical plane and concern
physical objects. On the psychic level, we must avoid
various psychic forms, psychic ideas, psychic movements and
also those aspects of telepathy or clairvoyance which
originate in the psychic plane. However, there are certain
phenomena which occur in a blended plane, for instance in a
blending of the psychic and spiritual planes. In such a
blended plane we come across a subtler form of telepathy. In
a blended plane of subtler psychic stratum and cruder
spiritual stratum, we encounter clairvoyance. Other
supra-occult powers such as omniscience exist only in the
pure spiritual stratum where there are no fetters of
duality, or where the fetters of duality are very slack or
slackened. Similar is the case with the transmission of
spirit or soul amongst different corporal structures
existing at the same time, that is, which are of
contemporary nature. Suppose there are several corporal
structures existing at the same time, there may occur
transmission of soul amongst them, from one soul to another
soul. This transmission of soul amongst contemporary
corporal structures can take place only when the spirit is
free, or almost free, from all fetters of duality. Such an
event takes place only in a supra-psychic structure, that
is, only on the spiritual level. But if there is any
blending of the unit mind with the spirit, it cannot take
place. This is also a hidden treasure of the human mind. But
I do not want you to try to acquire these occult powers. You
should only desire to be one with the Supreme, there must
not be any longing to attain these occult powers, it is
bad. Only the thought wave which emanates from the spiritual
plane will save humanity from the devastating influence of
dogma which separate humans from humans, which create
hindrances in the remoulding of human society into a single
existence. This process of rationalisation should be
developed through the intrinsic human potential of
remodeling every aspect of mind. We must do this in the near
future. The problem is a peculiar one, but we must solve it,
because it has created so many troubles, so many divisions
in human society, so many sanguinary battles, so much
warfare. This problem may disturb the peace of the entire
universe. So we will have to solve this problem and
create a new world in all the three emanations of life
physical, psychic and spiritual. I hope you boys and girls,
by your collective effort, will do something concrete in
this respect. You are not insignificant beings, you are the
glorified expressions of the Supreme Lord. So you will have
to do something concrete immediately. The problem brooks no
