"In remembrance of My constellation, the square and nine stars shall glow over the
Temple. The sign of the foot and the hand shall be inscribed above the Cornerstone."

The Star of Allahabad pointed out the way. And so We visited Sarnath and Gaya.
Everywhere We found the desecration of religion. On the way back, under the full
moon, occurred the memorable saying of Christ.

During the night-march the guide lost his way. After some seeking, I found Christ
seated upon a sand mound looking at the sands flooded by moonlight. I said to Him,
`We have lost the way. We must await the indication of the stars'.

`Rossul M., what is a way to Us, when the whole world is awaiting Us?'

 

Then, taking His bamboo staff, He traced a square around the impression of His palm,
He surrounded it also with a square. `Verily, by human hands.'

Between the squares He drew the semblance of a pillar surmounted by an arc. He said:
`O how Aum shall penetrate into the human consciousness! Here I have drawn
a pistil and above it an arc, and have set the foundation in four directions. When by
human feet and human hands the Temple will be built wherein will blossom the pistil
laid by Me, then let the Builders pass by My Way. Why should We await the way,
when it is before Us?'

Then, rising, He effaced with His cane all that He had drawn.

`When the Name of the Temple will be pronounced, then shall the inscription emerge.
In remembrance of My constellation, the square and nine stars shall glow over the
Temple. The sign of the foot and the hand shall be inscribed above the Cornerstone.'

Thus He Himself spoke on the eve of the new moon.

And the heat of the desert was great.
