(A very advance mast of Ajanta)
A very advance mast who was renowned throughout the adjacent countryside. He looked to be perhaps 70 to 80 years old, but locally, people said that he was over 100. He is so respected in Ajanta that he was given whatever he asked for. A local Marwari has given him a garden, Baba drove over to Ajanta from Aurangabad, and when Party arrived, one of the groups introduced the topic of a contact with Baba. Mian Saheb suggested the use of a room on the upper floor of Khoja’s house. This Khoja, who was then present, was overjoyed at the compliment, and rushed off to get the key of this house. When the key was brought and the door was opened, Baba and the mast climbed to a room on the upper floor, and were there for some time. When Mian Saheb took Baba into the room he invited him to sit upon a sofa, and then sat next to Baba, and embraced him very lovingly and wept and wept aloud. Those waiting below heard the mast weeping, and once he cried out the Persian couplet, “Khud be kud azad budi, khud gireftar admai”, which means, in free translation, “You become free, and then allow yourself to be bound.” This refers to Baba’s Infinite state, and how he becomes bound of his own will to help humanity. Baba contacted him in November, 1944.
