Guida Spirituale



CHAPTER 1

Go Placidly
26 August 1980 am in Buddha Hall


HEAR THEN THE WISDOM OF THE WISE: ”GO PLACIDLY AMID THE NOISE AND THE HASTE,
AND REMEMBER WHAT PEACE THERE MAY BE IN SILENCE.
”AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, WITHOUT SURRENDER, BE ON GOOD TERMS WITH ALL PERSONS.
SPEAK YOUR TRUTH QUIETLY AND CLEARLY; AND LISTEN TO OTHERS, EVEN TO THE DULL
AND THE IGNORANT; THEY TOO HAVE THEIR STORY.”

WE ENTER TODAY into one of the most beautiful worlds, that of a small document called the
DESIDERATA. It is strange because it has appeared many times and disappeared many times;
hence nobody exactly knows who wrote it. Truth has the capacity to appear again and again;
because of human stupidity it is lost again and again too.

The Desiderata seems to be one of the most ancient documents available today, but it is copyrighted
by a poet, Max Ehrmann. In his book of poems it is also given as a poem authored by him,
copyrighted in 1927 in America, although in the first edition he talks about the legend that this
small document was discovered on a plaque installed in St. Paul’s Church in Baltimore when built in
1692, but it was lost. There is no proof any more whether it was installed as a plaque in St. Paul’s
Church or not. The legend is there; it has persisted. It seems Max Ehrmann again had the vision of
it. It came to him as a vision. He is not really its author but only a receptacle, a medium.

This has happened to many other documents too. It happened in the case of Blavatsky’s THE
VOICE OF SILENCE: she is known as the authoress of the book, but the book is very ancient. She
discovered it in her meditations; it appeared to her.

Many parts of Friedrich Nietzsche’s THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA are also very ancient, and the
same is the case with Omar Khayyam’s RUBAIYAT. Mabel Collins’ Light on THE PATH IS of the
same category, Kahlil Gibran’s THE PROPHET also.
