I HAVE HAD DARSHAN OF THE KALKI AVATAR
A large public darshan was held in the evening at the Jessawalas’ bungalow. Eruch had previously been connected with the Ramakrishna Ashram in Nagpur. The swami of the ashram was Bhaskareshwar Ananda and he attended the darshan. A saintly Hindu named Tukdoji Maharaj also attended. Tukdoji sang heartfelt bhajans before Baba, and was gratified at having his darshan.
Swami Bhaskareshwar Ananda had come full of questions, but, being in Meher Baba’s presence, he completely forgot what he had wanted to ask. He quietly sat by Baba, and tears began flowing from his eyes. He internally received the answers to his questions and his heart became full with divine love. Before leaving he remarked, “I have had Ramakrishna’s darshan today!”
Hundreds came for Baba’s darshan that evening, among whom was the wife of a prominent judge. Her guru had advised her, “Go to Nagpur for the darshan of the Kalanki Avatar!” (1) When she approached Baba, the woman cried out, “Kalanki Avatar! Kalanki Avatar!” Those who saw her were taken aback, wondering if she was a mastani – female mast. She threw herself at Baba’s feet and exclaimed, “The object of my life is fulfilled today! I have had the darshan of the Kalanki Avatar!” The woman went away in tears, but they were tears of joy.
(1) Kalanki, another name for the White Horse Avatar, means the Divine Incarnation belonging to the present Kali Yuga, which is the last of the four yugas or ages, and the longest. Each yuga comprises millions of years and hundreds of Avataric incarnations.
