The Time of My Death Is Determined By My Work

Excerpt from the book, Garbage and the Goddess, 1974.

Everybody is very interested in the Guru's death. Death itself is fascinating. So everyone has his mind on this possibility, but the significance of this period of time is not whether or not I am going to survive. Its significance is relative to the stabilization of the Divine Siddhi in the world.

The time of my death is not determined by the karmas of this world. It is determined by the event of My Work itself, the bringing of the Divine Manifestation into life. When that Work is complete, the death of this one will occur. It cannot be predetermined and there are no signs in My appearance or in the state of the Work that will help you figure it out. It may seem like the Work has not been completed, and yet I may go. On the other hand, it may seem like the Work has been completed years ago and I am still hanging around. All fascination with My death only reflects the individual's refusal to yield the state of his own separateness. It is making the Guru a symbol of that personal drama.
