Establishing the Death of Prophet Jesus is not Enough [Spiritual Reform is what is Needed]:
by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib of Qadian
Malfuzat, vol. 2 (old edition), pp. 71-72


I do not want you when taking the bai’at (pledge of fealty) to repeat the words like a parrot. You can derive no benefit from that. Instead, you should acquire the knowledge of self-purification, for that is indeed the indispensable prerequisite to progress. It was never my intention that you should argue and quarrel over the death and life of the Promised Messiah. That is a matter of small importance and you should not remain stuck in it. That was an error of belief, which I have corrected.

In fact, my work and my purpose go very far beyond that controversy. What I really want you to do is to perform a complete change within yourself and transform yourself into a new personality. That is why it is important for every one of you to understand that secret and make such a reformation in yourself that you can truly say: "I am a different person."

I therefore reiterate with total certainty of conviction that if you stay in my company for a certain length of time and cannot discern a change in yourself, then you have derived no benefit from the exercise. On the other hand, if you achieve a high degree of purity in your natural, intellectual and emotional condition, you will have gained a significant advance in life. If not, no progress has been made.
