"I am also very happy to have met you," Baba indicated.

They talked about her mother and Baba remarked, "She will be born as a man in India."

"I also think so," said Mrs. Scott. "She loved India so much. She now greatly needs rest."

Reassuring her, Baba stated, "The world is now inclined toward materialism, and to turn toward the higher values of life, it needs help. I will give it this help."

"I believe you will truly do so," said Mrs. Scott. "God is the supporter of everything and the source of all and He is present in all. But He is to be realized and revealed."

"I will help you toward that end," Baba promised.

"I am indebted to you," she replied.

An Egyptian diplomat asked Baba, "What kind of prayer is best?"

Baba answered in one word, "Love."

The Polish pianist Arthur Rubinstein, 46, and his young wife, Nela, 25, were friends of Herbert's and came to see Baba on the 14th. "Music is one of the mediums for the expression of the Infinite," Baba told Rubinstein, "and musicians are more inclined towards spirituality as spirituality touches the heart." Rubinstein was an agnostic but proud of his Jewish heritage and mentioned that Jews did not have a tradition of worshiping a personal God. Nevertheless, Rubinstein generously offered Baba the use of his home to host a gathering. He also offered Baba two complimentary tickets to a concert at Queen's Hall, where his associate Sir Henry Wood was conducting a program of classical music.  Baba did not end up using either Rubinstein's home or the tickets.

After meeting other interested persons, that afternoon at 2:30 Baba went back to the Q Theater to see a variety show. That night, Baba agreed to meet the other (mostly Indian) residents of Hygeia House, but stipulated that he would only shake hands, not answer questions.

On one occasion, Baba harshly scolded Adi Jr. for giving away a Parsi cap which Anita had requested. This was quite contrary to Baba's order to not give anything to anyone. Anita pleaded guilty for her participation and Baba forgave her, but Adi was on the verge of tears from the embarrassing verbal thrashing in the presence of others.

William Donkin, 22, a medical student at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, had made a trip on camelback across the Sahara Desert the year before and was unconsciously drawn to search for the aim of life. He was also interested in "spiritual healing" and had visited several centers in London investigating different approaches to relieving pain through meditation, hypnotism, and the use of magnets.
