OPINION OF CLOSE DISCIPLES OF MEHER BABA ON HIS SENSE OF HUMOUR

 

Meher Baba, the Avatar (God-man) had consciousness of infinite knowledge, Power and Bliss and simultaneously the consciousness of ordinary man. Through His infinite bliss He sustained universal suffering.

 

Bal Natu produced Baba’s word in his exposition “Glimpses of the Godman”

Appropriately, Baba touched on the subject of God’s humour. He stated that Creation is God’s Leela (Divine Sport) and that is sustained by His sense of humour. He also explained that the expression of God’s humour varies with the scope and range of work that is ordained and accomplished in each advent through the Avatar, Sadgurus, saints and masts. In fact, God’s sense of humour is so pervasive that there is not a person who is totally devoid of it.

 

Dalia Deleon wrote in her book “The Ocean of Love”

“Baba used to have one of us to read jokes every afternoon, and someone asked why He liked jokes. Baba replied because the Universe is God’s biggest joke!”

 

Mehera Irani expressed in her writings of her book “Mehera”

Sometimes Baba used to tell us funny stories, and sometimes He would say, “Now you tell Me some funny stories.” When Baba asked me, I told Him that I never read any funny stories. We were always studying at school and had no time for such books. The other girls told Baba, "We only know a very short one.” And Baba sweetly said, “No matter how short it is, tell me!” So they did, and Baba enjoyed the story very much. But the next time Baba asked for a funny story, the girls had to tell Him that they did not know any more. “Never mind,” Baba said, ‘tell me the same once again.’

So they repeated the story, and Baba enjoyed it as much as He   had the first time! Baba was very childlike and enjoyed fun and every funny thing. He Himself was very witty and clever. With slightest excuse Baba would find humour in a situation, and He used to amuse everybody. Baba had so much serious work on His mind, and He told us that humour lightened the burden of it. He was so lovely, Baba was. He is still beautiful, but you cannot see Him!”

 

Bill Le Page described Baba’s Humour in his book “Over the Years”

 

Baba enjoyed Jokes and humorous stories and His own humour could be keen, with underlying spiritual significance, but it was never hurtful or belittling in front of others. He was also always entertained by human foibles where no harm was done to anyone.

 

Sometimes, Baba created rift among mandali members so as to wipe out their deep rooted sanskaras.
