34-HOLD FAST TO MY DAAMAN
Holding fast to My daaman means, Hold Me, or leave Me! Don't try to compromise. One thing is definite and fixed: if I am the Highest of the High or if I am the lowest of the low and you hold fast to My daaman, you will be where I will be. This depends on how fast is your grip on My daaman. It matters not if you are saints or sinners.
I will give you one example. In My boyhood, I liked very much to fly kites. You know that kites have long tails and as they soar high in the skies, the tails flutter vigorously. If they hold fast to the kite, they go where the kite flies. It matters little whether the tails are stuck with fine gum or some dirty thing. What is needed is that the grip should not loosen. In the same way, whether you are sinners or saints, if you hold fast to My daaman, you will be wherever I will be.
By holding fast means keep Baba pleased always by your obeying Him wholeheartedly! (Lord Meher online: 3698-99}
Hold My Daman if you want to know God
Although you are divided into groups, to Me you all are one. But if you want to know God, the only solution is to catch hold of My daaman (robe). If you care for God, if you have a sincere longing for Union, then hold on to My garment firmly. But if you have other wants to satisfy, if you want health, riches, children – then do not come to Me. There are many saints who can satisfy your desires.
