The Unstruck Music of Meher Baba - A Source of Daily Inspiration

Margaret Magnus

By Margaret Magnus

The book The Unstruck Music of Meher Baba: God's Voice is one of the few remaining items belonging to Meher Mount co-founder and lifetime caretaker Agnes Baron (1907-1994).

Unstruck Music is a hand-typed, paper-bound collection of passages by and about Avatar Meher Baba from 14 different sources. These items were compiled by Maude Kennedy, one of Meher Baba's early followers.

THE UNSTRUCK MUSIC OF MEHER BABA has quotes about and by Avatar Meher Baba - one for every day of the year. It was compiled by Maude Kennedy and was a favorite of Meher Mount co-founder and lifetime caretaker, Agnes Baron (1907-1994.)

A QUOTE FOR JANUARY 17

The book features a passage for every day of the year. Because this book was a favorite of Agnes' and in honor of her birthday on January 17th, the following is the quotation for that day:

The life of the spirit. The life of the spirit has its basis in a true understanding of values, and is governed by it.

”In the life of perfect action there must be harmonious adjustment between material and spiritual aspects of life. This cannot be affected by granting equal importance to them. Baba says: ‘Change the orbit of disharmony with self at its centre, to an orbit of harmony with God as centre.’
— Unstruck Music of Avatar Mener Baba

Agnes made a notation (in shorthand) on this passage, and specifically underlined the phrase: "...harmonious adjustment between material and spiritual aspects of life."   

AGNES BARON WOULD READ PASSAGES TO VISITORS

Sam Ervin, a frequent visitor to Meher Mount, remembers sitting on the lawn with Agnes during an afternoon work break while she would read at least one passage for the day.

"What I remember," added Martha Marklof Aubin," is probably similar to Sam's memory. Agnes would daily read snippets from a book. When we visited she would read passages to us. We often discussed them. She carried the book around with her in the mornings, read and reread the book many times. It is underlined, and notes were written in the margins.

Agnes' original copy was destroyed in the 1985 New Life Fire. "I believe I gave the current one to Agnes after the fire," said Martha, as a replacement for the one lost in the fire. It is not known how many copies were originally made and distributed.
