Mind implies thinking or consciousness. When Mind does not think, Infinite Intelligence is unconscious; when mind thinks infinitely, It creates the universe through the Om Point; when Mind thinks falsely as a result of sanskaras, it realizes this universe through its subtle and gross bodies; and when Mind thinks really, It realizes Itself. Thus the Infinite Intelligence is in every individual infinite false mind. Through every individual infinite false mind false I and its subtle and gross bodies, the same one Infinite Intelligence continues to realize Its subtle and gross imagination. Detailed explanations of these terms can be found in the Glossary and in the Essay on the Philosophy, Text, and Editorial Practice hereafter referred to as "Essay".

The material comes from previously unpublished manuscripts dating back to The material was first discoverd shortly after Meher Baba dropped his physical form in and is only now being released after a long and meticulous editing process detailed in an academically rigorous supplemental essay.
Down the centuries, philosophers of diverse stripes and backgrounds have trained their sights on this target. But the profundity and originality of the treatment here attests to a point of view that is rooted not in convention and intellectual tradition but in the Reality, and to an Authority which goes beyond what the limited human mind is capable of. Extensive supplemental content helps readers to approach the text.
Published This book delves into an ageless subject: God as Infinite Intelligence. But when Intelligence as the embodied soul identifies with the forms of Its own imagining, this false thinking binds It, and at the same time, actualizes the universe by bringing it into experience.
From this starting point— the interplay of thinking and imagination— Infinite Intelligence unfolds a vast cosmology in which all things, conditions, and human types are shown to derive from the various states of God. The book explains the role of sanskaras impressions in the evolution of thinking, and it describes how sanskaras are subsequently eliminated through the yogas of knowledge, action, concentration, and devotion. Towering over the spiritual panorama is the figure of the Sadguru or Perfect Master.
Encompassing all the states of the Infinite Intelligence, the Sadguru offers man release from bondage and holds the key to the Realization of Self. Its text is edited from a manuscript in the Archives Collection of the Avatar Meher Baba Trust in Ahmednagar, India , a manuscript consisting of two unsigned handwritten notebooks that probably date from the mids.
Whose is the hand- writing? How did it get transcribed? Does it contain one treatise or two? The text also includes marginal summaries, synopses, an extensive glossary, detailed notes, full index, and other aids. Designed to serve the general reader as well as the scholar, this edition brings before the public for the first time an important body of original philosophic material from the early years of the life and working of One widely recognized to be the Avatar or Christ of the age.
