The genesis of Meher Baba’s motto: "Mastery in Servitude".
In early February 1923 during Manzil-e-Meem period. “One day Baba convened a session of the Gutta and said, "Let us have a motto." All agreed this was needed. After a dozen suggestions and rejections by various men, Baba, himself, spontaneously proposed "Mastery in Servitude." Everyone liked it, so it was officially adopted as the motto of Manzil-e-Meem and later was used on a seal of the Master's work.”
