1-TABLA PLAYER

Baba instructed the mandali to take darshan of Upasni Maharaj's samadhi, which they did. Noshir Siganporia stepped forward to garland Baba, and Baba directed him also to bow down at Maharaj's tomb. Bhajans were sung and, through hand gestures, Baba directed the tabalchi (tabla player) how to keep in rhythm. (Lord  Meher-p-3914-1956)

TARABAI DALVI

(Daughter of Maruti Patil of Arangaon)

Maruti Patil's daughter Tara did work for the women mandali on the hill, but she went back to the village to stay with her father. On the hill, as mentioned, were Kaikobad's family and Mansari. (Lord Meher-p-2781-1949)

In 1954, Baba visited the small tuberculosis sanitarium near the village Arangaon. Baba had been invited there by one of his devotees, Kamlabai Pusalkar, who was a nurse. Maruti Patil's daughter Tarabai Dalvi was also working there. Baba saw all the patients and then left. (Lord Meher-p-3615-1954)

Baba said following explanation quoting her.

We do not feel tired of the world and, unless we are away from it, we cannot attain Godhood. If God likes somebody and if He wishes to take him away from Sansara, he gives him a body that becomes unfit for the ways of the world. Look at this Tarabai. She must have been doing Sansara as a man or a woman for births on end and yet she did not feel tired of it; somehow God has taken to her, or it may be that her time of attaining Godhood is nearby, and that is why she has been given such a body that she cannot take to Sansara. Look at them, Lakshmibai, Parvatibai, Sarasvatibai, they are all in the same boat, and that is why their bodies are suffering from intractable diseases so that they should lose all interest in the Sansara; they are suffering themselves and make others also suffer for them.

What do these painful circumstances indicate? They indicate that because you do not feel tired of Sansara but God wants you to be out of it, therefore, these difficulties come in your way of Sansara. The body is like a motor car; when it gets out of order, one gets it repaired. When it begins to get out of order every day, then one begins to lose his interest in it. In the same way, when something goes wrong with the body, you get it set right by a doctor; similarly you get your mind set right by a Satpurusha.

Why does one get them set right? Because of one's desire to do Sansara with their help is there; one gets births on end for that purpose. When diseases and circumstances one after another attack them, one begins to get disgusted with them. Then that person begins to say, "Oh God; I am tired of all this; please relieve me of this disgusting Sansara. I am tired of this wife (or husband) and these children. They are all useless and hopeless". When such disgust reaches its limit, then that person, man or woman, begins to turn away from it, from the ways of the world, and begins to look to God; in due course they receive His Grace, and He takes them away to His place.

(Sansara – the endless round of birth and death)

 

THREE CHILDREN

 

THREE CHILDREN BETWEEN FOUR AND EIGHT YEARS OLD WERE BROUGHT ONTO THE DAIS BY LOKHANDE

In darshan program of 1958, Lokhande brought his three children onto the dais. They were between four and eight years old and they sang before Baba. Afterward, Baba embraced them.(Lord Meher-p-4278-1958)

 

 

TIPNIS SHANTARAM N.

In year 1954, Baba accepted his invitation to perform the housewarming ceremony. the invitation of Yeshwant Rao, who was one of Sadguru Upasni Maharaj's chief disciples had recently built a new home in Sakori. Mandali and certain Ahmednagar lovers left on the morning of 20 March 1954 in morning. Baba left an hour later from Meherazad. Among the residents of the ashram, was a woman named Usha Tipnis. Shantaram N. Tipnis, Usha's brother and the editor of a magazine titled Devotion, also bowed to Baba. (Lord meher-p-3530-1954)

 

 

TIPNIS USHA

(She was a good singer)

In year 1954, Baba accepted invitation to perform the housewarming ceremony. of Yeshwant Rao, who was one of Sadguru Upasni Maharaj's chief disciples had recently built a new home in Sakori. Mandali and certain Ahmednagar lovers left on the morning of 20 March 1954 in morning. Baba left an hour later from Meherazad. Among the residents of the ashram, was a woman named Usha Tipnis, who had had Baba's darshan in Amraoti in (lord   Meher- 3530-1954)

Usha Tipnis asked for his blessings, and Baba replied, "You must love me to such an extent that you lose yourself and then find me. Do you understand this?" Usha nodded that she did.

"To say so is easy," Baba replied, "but to do it is difficult.

How will you do it?"

"Everything is in your hands," Usha answered.

"That is also well said, but you should think of me to such an extent that there remains no room for any other thought except my continual remembrance. Then I am with you. This should be done with 100 percent honesty."3532-1954

To celebrate Mehera's birthday, in October 1963, about 250 women from Ahmednagar, Poona, Bombay, Navsari and Meherabad were invited to come to Meherazad. Jaipuri Qawaal had come to sing. Baba sat in his chair in mandali hall and looked cheerful.

Baba asked Lata Limaye to sing. She sang the two songs and Baba embraced her twice for her efforts.  Then Usha Tipnis sang. The words were so beautiful Mehera began weeping, and Baba lovingly pulled out his handkerchief and wiped her tears. (Lord Meher-p-5054-1963)

 

THAKUR K. K.

In year 1944, Leaving Women mandali at Aurangabad, Baba departed for Nagpur Manmad on 10th November, via Manmad, Group reached Nagpur the next morning at ten o'clock.

 

Laden with flowers, Baba was led to his car and taken to the house of K. K. Thakur, an attorney with whom Deshmukh had arranged accommodations for Baba and the mandali, in the Dhantoli locality. (Lord Meher-p-2438/3-1944)

 

44-THREE SMALL GIRLS

In year 1954, Baba visited nearly all the houses in Arangaon, where his arti was sung and he was profusely garlanded. He was literally buried under the garlands and kept them on despite the intense afternoon heat. "That day, Baba showered his love on the villagers,"

Men stretched themselves on their stomachs in the dust in obeisance, and women laid their tiny tots on his feet and raised them so Baba could kiss them. It was another extraordinary sight for the Westerners. That morning Baba had said he was giving them the "Last Drink," and now it seemed as if Jesus were once more walking through a Galilean village.

The group entered a policeman's compound, where three small girls gave a dance performance. Baba distributed prasad to about 200 of the villagers, most of whom had been students in the Hazrat Babajan High School. (Lord Meher-p-3614-1954)

53-TRIMBAK BADVE

(Father of Shanta wife of Chhagan)

In the on 11th February 1927, Baba set out on foot with the mandali for Akolner to attend the wedding of Chhagan's sister-in-law. When it was time to start, Baba directed Chhagan, "You walk ahead and lead. I will follow you," but Chhagan refused. Baba warned him, "Remember, take care. Do not be dragged away by Maya’s flood."

When Baba reached the house of Chhagan's wife's uncle, no special seat had been arranged for Baba, and he sat quietly in a corner on an ordinary chair. As per Hindu custom, Chhagan had been married as a child in an arranged marriage years before, but since he was staying with Baba, he had never lived with his wife, who was still quite young. At Akolner, Chhagan's relatives confronted him about this, asking contemptuously, "Don't you love your wife? Why did you marry her if you did not want to be with her? How will you benefit by following this Bua (saint)?"

Chhagan's wife Shanta had been staying with her parents, and her father Trimbak Badve was upset at this. As soon as Badve saw Baba, he began abusing him terribly. "How dare you separate a husband from his wife. You are not a saint; you are bogus!"

Such harsh accusations were voiced by others at the wedding reception, as well. Baba ignored them and responded with a silent smile. When the ceremony was over, Baba indicated that he wished to leave and none of the people even folded their hands to him when he left. Chhagan, surprisingly, remained behind with his in-laws rather than leave with Baba and the mandali. (Lord meher-p-775-1927)

 

 

53-TRILOK SINGH

(Nephew of Daulat Singh)

In year 1957, Siganporia had organized the darshan in the spacious Sunderbai Hall at Churhgate. The Poona bhajan mandali and other out-of-town lovers were also present. Baba arrived at the hall in morning at 8:00 a.m. on 22nd December, and was warmly received with the usual acclamations. The hall was packed.

The darshan started as hundreds of men and women filed past him from separate lines.. When the darshan ended at noon, almost 3,000 people had been fortunate enough to come in contact with the Avatar.

Among those in attendance was Dr. Daulat Singh's nephew, Trilok Singh, from Uganda, who arrived late because his flight to India was delayed. Baba often inquired whether he had come. Trilok Singh had attended the sahavas programs at Meherabad, and had invited Baba to give mass darshan in Africa. He brought his entire family to Bombay, including his nine-year-old son, Hardip, and all became devoted followers. (Lord Meher-p-4231-1957)

 

TUKDOJI MAHARAJ

On 27th December 1937, a large public darshan was held in the evening at the Jessawalas' bungalow. A renowned saint with a large following named Tukdoji Maharaj also attended. Tukdoji sang heartfelt bhajans before Baba, and was gratified at having his darshan. (Lord Meher-p-1895-1937)

 

TUREKAR SHANKAR  MAHADEV

 

he police superintendent Turekar came to Baba with tears in his eyes. His family problems had not abated. Baba consoled him, "Why worry? Be courageous. Think more and more of me. Don't wear yourself out. I know your love for me and the circumstances you are put in. Thank me for the suffering that has fallen to your lot."

Baba quoted the following Persian couplet:

 

I cause my enemies to flourish and kill my friends.

This I do, and no one has the right to demand why I do so!

 

"To a lover drowned in despair, Hafiz has said:

 

Even taking it for granted that you have no hope to reach the Goal, don't lose courage.

 

Be brave. Don't doubt the Master until you become lost to yourself.

"As you come in my contact, at times you become 100 percent miserable. But be sure that I know everything. I am the Ocean of love and compassion. Every individual is meant to be happy because God, Who is infinite bliss, is within everyone. One must love God, see God and become God."

 

Turekar left comforted. (Lord Meher-p-4703-1960)

 

 

 

62-TWO BEGGING SADHUS

Baba and His group departed around noon on 2nd August 1924, after a brief rest in Poona. It was proposed that they proceed to Raichur. Nine of Baba’s disciples were on the platform of the Poona railway station to bid them farewell. In the compartment were two sadhus begging for food. As soon as the train pulled out of Poona, Baba approached them. He fed the sadhus, gave them dakshina (a monetary offering) and bowed at their feet. (Lord Meher-p-539-1924)

 

64-TWO EX. MAYORS OF POONA

Although these daily sessions in the evening were only meant for lovers and not the general public, once Baba permitted the mayor of Poona to come with his two predecessors. Baba explained to them about Maya: (June 1961)

God alone exists as Existence Eternal and all else is illusion – a creation of Maya. And what is Maya? Maya is the principle of ignorance. Maya makes you feel what, in fact, does not exist. In Reality, neither man nor woman, neither the so-called animate beings nor the inanimate things exist. It is Maya which causes the unreal to appear as real and existing.

Mind, the issue of Maya, imagines infinite divisions and so creates innumerable worlds of worries. As long as mind exists, ignorance persists. And what a joke that mind tries to gain bliss through furious thinking and worrying, which is empty dreaming! For bliss to come into being, mind has to be quiet. You cannot invite bliss. It is ever present – everywhere. (Lord Meher, American ed., Bhau Kalchuri, Vol. 17, p. 5829)

 

 

66-TWO MEN

On 17th February 1952, Baba left Meherazad for Bombay in Nariman's car with women disciple’s men and other travelled in car. On the way, they halted for a while at Bindra House in Poona, where a small darshan program was held. After leaving a darshan, Baba suddenly had the driver stop the car for no apparent reason. Soon afterwards, two men ran up to the car and, panting, prostrated themselves on the ground. The men had been late in arriving at the darshan, only to find that Baba had left. They had run in the direction of his car, in hopes of catching up to it. It was for them Baba had the car stopped.  (Lord Meher-p-3033-1952)

 

68-TWO PARTIES FROM ARANGAON

The episode goes like this

The little village of Arangaon, with its four hundred inhabitants, is about a quarter mile from Meherabad. We can hear its temple bells from our hilltop. The village had its importance, together with Ahmednagar, in the time of the brave Mohammedan queen, Chandbibi, who lived several hundred years ago in the Mogul period, and who led her armies to victory (although she, riding on her white horse, was killed in the battle.

There is an ancient feud existing in Arangaon, the true details of which are lost, but which is kept alive in the village through the inhabitants taking sides; two "parties" have long been formed. The village has always been divided against itself, despite the fact that the inhabitants are particularly of one caste.

It happened ... that some minor crime was committed in Arangaon, and the ancient feud flared up; one village party was on the point of killing the other when they remembered Baba. They sent a delegation to Him, saying that only Meher Baba could settle their differences. He returned word that He would meet a contingent from either side, both at the same time at the ashram Meherabad that evening.

As we rode up, the two parties were seated, divided on either side of the building, and Baba arranged that they were kept waiting for a few moments and then suddenly called into the ashram. In this way they came inside all mixed as one party and Baba requested them at once to be seated on the floor.

One villager with murderous thoughts against the other found himself seated next to one of the opposite party -- they were so intent upon putting their side of the question before Meher Baba, believing Him to be the True Judge, that they did what on other occasions would have been impossible without bloodshed.

Baba had several of His able, staunch men disciples conduct the gathering, and if more than one villager spoke at a time they were quietly but strongly kept in order. Baba showed extreme patience and listened to about forty anguished souls with all they had come to say

Finally one old woman came forward and swayed back and forth, almost as if she were reciting an incantation of all the woes of the race. One of the village men stepped forward and pushed her aside, as even they could not stand so many woes!

At another point, when evidently the particular offender was speaking, about ten men arose and commenced yelling at one another. Baba smiled benignly and then clapped His hands for silence. The effect was instantaneous and amazing; the men so rough and loud and Baba so gentle in comparison, not speaking, but with only a hand clap of command that abashed their storm of passion.

On His board, interpreted by one of His disciples, He informed the gathering that, as evidently they had made up their minds not to be peaceable, there was nothing to do but to leave the matter to take its course, and when it reached the authorities they would deal with it in their own way. Baba arose to leave. Upon this the villagers, who were enjoying their ill feelings towards one another and wished to talk all night, were taken aback and their faces visibly fell, for suddenly the arguers were left without an argument as fire without fuel!

Meher Baba paused at the doorway and, seeing them crestfallen, stated that He would remain only if they would abide by His decision – to which they agreed. First He took the headman to task for not having kept better order in the village. Some began to feel rather sorry because they felt in their hearts that they were really to blame in this matter. Then He told the dissenters that they must "forgive and forget  and became one.”

As long as they had two parties they could never accomplish this. There was much discussion amongst themselves, and I thought, of course, that they were objecting to giving up the two parties; but instead there was objection to eating together, as it had been proposed that a village feast be held. The question at issue appeared to be that one side would not accept food from the other. In Indian custom if both parties agree to eat together, it becomes a bond; similarly, in our Christian Bible it refers to breaking bread together as something sacred; but we in the West have lost the significance that the East still has this rite.

It was agreed finally that if Meher Baba Himself would give the food, they would both accept from Him and thereby become one family. In this concrete manner, a few days later, Baba thus blessed this flock of black and white sheep, uniting them from ancient hatred into fellowship. (Treasures pp.78-79 Jane Barry Hyanes)

71-TWO VILLAGERS

There were two men in Arangaon who worked extracting peanut and safflower cooking oils. Once these two villagers came to Baba with the complaint that their relatives were refusing to take part in a wedding feast at their house, because, according to Baba's orders, no mutton was to be served. (Lord Meher-p-615-1925)

 

 

75-UDAY SHANKAR

On 28th September 1933, the celebrated Indian dancer Uday Shankar, 33, came to see Baba.  He had found out about Baba through the Swiss sculptor and art historian Alice Boner, who was defraying the expenses of the visit of Shankar's dance troupe to the West. It was during Alice Boner's trip to India with Shankar in 1930 that she heard of Meher Baba. While in Europe, Norina, Elizabeth and Quentin had met Uday Shankar and had spoken to him of their Master.

Uday Shankar bowed reverently to Baba, who praised him and expressed appreciation for his talent. He told Baba, "I want to introduce and spread Indian classical dance to the West, but some organizations in India criticize me. They want money from me for their institutions, organizations and societies, but I have no money to give them."

Baba spelled out on his board, "Every good work has to face opposition, and the reaction of the opposition offered always helps the work. You need not worry; continue conscientiously with your work, with double the zeal in the right direction."

Shankar then said, "Baba, I would like to give a dance performance for you one day."

Baba replied, "I would be delighted to see it."

Shankar was extremely happy to have Baba's darshan, but Baba cautioned him before they parted, "Do not inform anyone on the ship about me, as I do not wish to meet anybody. See me before disembarking in Brindisi." (Lord Meher-p-1547-1933)

 

 

85-VAJIFDAR HORMUSJI JEHANGIR

After Meher Baba had set up his own ashram, Baba had sent his disciples Ghani, Vajifdar, and Sadashiv to meet Tajuddin, and upon meeting the three men, Tajuddin gave each a photograph of Meher Baba, telling them, "Worship this photograph of Meher Baba." They then bowed down and said prayers before Baba's photograph in front of Tajuddin Baba.

In 1922, one day Naval brought a friend to meet Baba, a famous cricketer named Hormusji Jehangir Vajifdar, 28. Vajifdar became a devoted follower and, likewise, began coming to the Manzil every day. He would bring fresh bread for Baba's and the mandali's breakfast early every morning at 4:00 A.M. on his bicycle. Naval and Vajifdar were soon considered close members of the household. Although they did not stay at the Manzil during the nights, both men strictly adhered to all orders and instructions given by the Master.

With Baba's permission, Vajifdar rented a bungalow in the suburb of Juhu for a picnic on Sunday, 8th October 1922. But that morning Baba's health was shaky and he appeared unwell. Despite this, he insisted on accompanying the mandali. He remarked, "We should go to Juhu with the joy that schoolboys feel while going home for vacation." Reaching Juhu, the Master rested for a while and then played a field game called thasak with the mandali under the shade of coconut trees. Afterward, at lunch, he insisted on serving the rich meal of puris (small, round, deep-fried wheat bread), a potato dish and shrikhand (a sweet yogurt dish). After eating, all were told to stay inside the bungalow, as it was very hot outside.

After the evening meals, Baba gathered the mandali and discussed the topic of his going to Sakori: My sufferings are now becoming unbearable and, by going to Sakori, Maharaj will take a little of the load off my shoulders; but because of this, Maharaj will have to suffer much internally. He may even beat me, abuse me and disgrace me in the presence of all at the time of Diwali [the Hindu festival of lights]. I have been telling you for months that advanced saints and mahatmas will disgrace and beat me, because at this moment the spiritual world is against me. So it is possible Maharaj may take the matter into his own hands by insulting and beating me. If I don't go, however, and continue staying here, I shall have to suffer terribly.

Except for Munshiji and Vajifdar, all the men agreed that Baba should go to Sakori, and he decided to leave that night.

On Sunday, 29th October, Baba decided to give alms to the poor. He instructed the mandali not to eat until the poor program was completed. Baba told the other men to find and bring lepers, the blind and the destitute to the Manzil. Ordinarily, 1,000 beggars could easily have been found in Bombay with the hope of free food and clothing. But it was not an easy task to locate 100 of the genuinely needy, helpless and poor.

Vajifdar went as far as Bhendi Bazaar, where he found a few needy persons; but the problem was how to take them back to the Manzil as he had no money with him. But besides being an expert cricketer, Vajifdar was also an expert in persuasion.

He persuaded one of the destitute to loan him the fare to take them in a tramcar, promising the poor man he would repay the money and pay for the return journey. Vajifdar succeeded in bringing many deserving people to the Manzil in this manner.

A thousand copies of Gareebon ka Aasara arrived from the printer on 15th November 1922, and selling the books became a regular activity at Manzil-e-Meem. Rustom and Vajifdar were the two men wholly occupied in this work and were ordered by Baba to sell as many copies as possible. The other men in the Manzil were told to help during their leisure time, "in every available spare hour," as Baba put it.

On one occasion, Rustom and Vajifdar approached a lawyer, handing him a copy of Gareebon ka Aasara. After casually glancing through the book, the lawyer asked, "What do you want me to do?"

Rustom jokingly said, "Why don't you buy 100 copies — you can afford it!" The man immediately pulled out Rs.300 from his pocket and handed it to Rustom. Later they learned the man was genuinely interested in spirituality.

For many days, Rustom and Vajifdar walked all over Bombay trying to sell the books. During the course of their daily solicitation, it was recommended that they visit a wealthy merchant who owned a lot of property and managed a successful business. When they went to meet the man at his office, they found him sitting in a small room on the bare floor dressed like a common clerk. They were shocked by the man's humble attire, but he welcomed them lovingly and bought several copies of the book.

On 7th March 1923, after almost three months of strict containment in the premises of Manzil-e-Meem, Baba went for a short outing to Munshiji's house on Charni Road with Vajifdar and 3 mandali men. Sayyed Saheb was staying there and had been feeling depressed for some time. To cheer him up, Baba drove to Munshiji's and returned after a few hours.

On the 6th of May 1922, Vajifdar and 4 other disciples arrived in Arangaon. These five men soon became aware that the daily routine in this deserted place was quite the reverse of what it had been at the Manzil in Bombay. Each man had to draw his own water from the well and had to wash his own clothes; then for the whole day the hard physical labour of cleaning and restoring the Mess Quarters continued.

Baba informed the five new arrivals: "The life here is unpleasant and rough. All of you will have to labour like coolies and do farming or seek employment in Ahmednagar, which would mean cycling six miles both ways every day. It would be better for you five to find jobs in Bombay, Poona, Lonavla or elsewhere. Even though you live somewhere else away from me, if you carry out my orders, my connection with you will remain intact. (

The design was approved by Baba, and the tailor took individual measurements to prepare one for each man. Kafnis were also made for Sadashiv and Vajifdar, who were in Poona and who were instructed by Baba to meet them in Kashmir. One bag, a water bottle and a pair of sandals were also brought for Sadashiv and Vajifdar, who were informed by letter of the conditions and restrictions to be observed during the tour.

On 23rd June 1924, it was decided to proceed to Kashmir. Baba and the mandali donned their new outfits on this date and were photographed. The next day, after further discussion, Baba made a change in the itinerary. Kashmir, it was felt, would be too cold with not enough warm clothing or suitable food, and no one spoke Kashmiri (the local language). Baba had decided that they would start from Calcutta, instead of Kashmir, and from there proceed to Bombay on foot. Vajifdar were telegraphed to meet them in Calcutta. The agreement on stamp paper was signed by each man and preparations were made to leave for Calcutta the following day. All their other luggage was packed in trunks except for two shirts, two pants, one blanket, one kafni, one bottle of drinking water, a bar of soap and a wooden staff.

They arrived at Ahmadabad on 27th June in morning. Vajifdar and 2 other disciples were there to meet them at the station. Baba sent Sarosh with Gulmai, Khorshed, and Soonamasi to Ahmednagar along with the trunks. He advised Khorshed and Soonamasi to stay in Ahmednagar until he sent for them to come to Bombay. Baba then had a private meeting with Sadashiv, Asthma and Vajifdar on the station platform. He ordered Sadashiv to return to Poona the next day with the particular kafni which had been sewn for him in Quetta. In addition, Sadashiv was to take Vajifdar's suit, shoes and hat with him and deliver them to Vajifdar's house in Bombay. According to Baba's conditions, the men could not wear anything else except the pajamas, shirt and kafni.

Dawn was just breaking, but it was already quite hot. Ramjoo had come down with a sudden fever. The dirt road was rough; they walked on loose earth inches deep. Wearing the tough Pathani sandals, they had difficulty treading it. They rested for some time under the shade of a tree, but there was not the slightest breeze to relieve the oppressive heat. After further inquiry, they were told that the road they were on led far out of their way. The heavy load of utensils and grains weighed them down and, after covering only a short distance, they became so exhausted that they had to take rest again under a tree. Vajifdar had blisters on his feet, Baba then remarked, "True, it is Ramjoo's fault we have taken this road, and we are all irritated about it, but that does not mean Nervous should pick a fight! This is the very reason Khodadad's name was changed to Nervous!"

Baba finished his tea and ordered that they start walking again. After some distance, he allowed the men to rest under the shade of a tree by the collector's bungalow.  They put down their packs with a sigh of relief and stretched out under the branches. There was a well in the compound but the place proved ill chosen, for the ground was full of rocks and the shade insufficient to shield them from the blazing sun. Despite the uncomfortable setting, all laid down. They were completely worn out, especially the stronger members whose loads were the heaviest. Vajifdar, who was the strongest, was unable to walk due to blisters on his feet; Masaji and Baidul lay on their stomachs breathing heavily; Pendu and Ramjoo were seething from the heat, and Ramjoo actually began weeping out of longing to quench his thirst. God is all-merciful, but the path to God is merciless. Now the mandali were to realize the Master's compassion and find him intervening on behalf of God.

 

The mandali's had walked fifteen miles from Barejadi to Kaira. They were weak from lack of water amidst the intense heat and the load they were made to carry. In the afternoon, a police officer abruptly arrived and took down their names and addresses. He warned them, "These days kidnapping of little children by thieves and dacoits is rampant in this area and the public is in an ugly mood. You would be wise to leave the district as soon as possible. A rumor is already about that you are a gang of kidnappers!" During this period, panic was widespread throughout the villages of Gujarat, and it was natural that the public looked on this band of unshaven, disheveled and strangely attired men with suspicion.

To clear up the matter, Baba told Vajifdar to go to the police superintendent to request his help and cooperation. The superintendent was a Parsi, but due to Vajifdar's ragged appearance, the man could not believe that this was the once famous cricketer. When Vajifdar tried to explain about Meher Baba and the purpose of their walking tour, the superintendent refused to believe a word. Vajifdar returned disappointed.

On 3rd July 1923, Baba and His group arrived in Broach and stayed until daybreak in the compound of a dharamshala near the station. Meanwhile, Baba, Vajifdar and Slamson went to the city in a Tonga. Vajifdar's relatives arranged their stay in the Parsi dharamshala located in Jamshed Gardens. On their return, all walked the distance of a mile and a half to the dharamshala. Three disciples played their roles as servants and were able to gain entrance into the exclusively Parsi guest house. There was no kitchen to cook the food and water was scarce due to scanty monsoon rains, but Gustadji managed to cook rice and dal outside.

On 11th July, repairs to the Post Office building began. But after only two hours of work, Baba gathered the mandali around him and said, "It is better to proceed to Bombay rather than remain here and look for work to keep ourselves occupied. In Bombay, there is no problem about keeping busy. Also, I can guide Vajifdar in his work of handling the distribution of Upasni Maharaj's biography in Gujarati.

On 16th August, after staying in Bombay for over a month, Baba went to Lonavla by train accompanied with 6 mandali men whose families lived in Lonavla. They had arranged for their stay in Madni's bungalow, and Abdul Tayab loaned his car for Baba's use. The seven days in Lonavla were relaxing and joyful. The Master gave discourses, played cards and listened to phonograph records with the mandali. Vajifdar joined them, and the cool, pleasant monsoon weather and Baba's good humor had the mandali in high spirits. (

Baba had planned to stay in the small office in the backyard of Manzil-e-Meem for an indefinite period. But, soon after his return, he started complaining about the discomforts of the small office house — its leaky roof and the damp rooms. And the landlord, whose attitude was less than friendly, did nothing toward fixing the roof. Baba had noticed a building for rent in the Parel district and liked it. His bedding and luggage, and that of some of the mandali, were transferred there on Sunday, 2 September 1923; the remaining belongings were to be brought the following day. But the next day, after Baba had spent the night in the new house, he declared that it was quite unsuitable and inconvenient, so it was promptly vacated.

Baba selected another house newly built near Kohinoor Mills in Dadar. He looked the place over and, before settling the rent with the owner, ordered the remaining baggage from Circle & Company's office to be shifted there. However, within an hour, he found fault with the incomplete condition of the building, as some of the construction work was still being done, and asked Behramji and Vajifdar to find another accommodation in Dadar. They selected one and Baba went in person to inspect it.

The apartment was situated near the Dadar railway station, on the second floor of Irani Mansion No. 6.  It was spacious and could be comfortably divided into two main sections. In one part, there were two bedrooms, a kitchen, a toilet and a bathroom — which Vajifdar was to occupy with his family. In the other half, there was a large room, a balcony and a bedroom which would adequately serve Baba and the mandali as an office and living accommodations. After Behramji and Vajifdar settled the terms of rent with the landlord, Baba moved in on 3 September. Behind the Master's sudden change of plans was always a hidden objective. From this move, Vajifdar and his relatives came into Baba's close contact. New deep connections were also established with other people of the locality.

All furniture from the Manzil office was moved to Irani Mansion during the first week of their stay. A huge wooden cupboard could not be taken up the narrow staircase, so it had to be hoisted by ropes over the balcony to the second floor. The office tables and chairs were kept outside on the balcony, and the wooden almirah (cupboard) was kept in the large hall. Vajifdar moved into the house with his sister-in-law Jerbai and her sister Hilla, as soon as Baba and the mandali settled there.

On 1st November, mandali left for Sakori. Slamson stayed behind with Baba at Bableshwar. At Rahata (a mile from Sakori) they met Vajifdar and 2 disciples who had arrived by train according to Baba's instructions. Finally the men reached Sakori, after a two-week walk from Bombay.

In the dharamshala, the entire day was spent discussing the upcoming trip to Persia. It was decided that these eleven men would accompany him including Vajifdar. It was also decided to start for Persia at the beginning of February by route of Bandar Abbas, and that the period before then should be spent in or near Karachi.

Regarding the journey to Persia, each man had to sign an agreement on stamp paper to this effect:

At Halt Ho, a bungalow was rented for two months, and all were under the impression that they would be staying there for at least that long. The men informed their families of their safe arrival and accordingly told them to write them at the Halt Ho address. But the very next day, Baba said, "I have now decided we will immediately go to Basra (in Iraq)], where we will pass the interim period before going to Persia via Baghdad. By then the cold in Baghdad and snowfall in Persia will have stopped."

Baba's statement was a shock to the mandali, but since leaving Manzil-e-Meem they had become accustomed to wandering from place to place and kept quiet. A telegram was sent to Vajifdar requesting funds and their passports. Thus peaceful Halt Ho turned into a noisy den of activity as they prepared to leave for Iraq.

Naval Talati had been instructed to inquire about obtaining passports from Bombay for Baba and the men. When he went to the Persian Consulate to sign the passports on behalf of Baba and the mandali, the consul casually told him, "Except for Meher Baba, all the others must come in person and sign the papers in my presence before I will endorse their passports. Meher Baba's presence is not necessary because he recently came to see me and told me he would send his passport with someone for my signature, to which I agreed."

This strange incident occurred on 17th November 1923, while Baba was in Karachi. When the mandali were informed of this, through Vajifdar's letter, they were greatly surprised, since the Master had been out of Bombay for a month and a half and had never been to the Persian Consulate. (Lord Meher-p-469-1923)

On 29th November, Baba sent for Vajifdar from Bombay and, after talking with him in private, made him immediately return. Thereafter, Baba proceeded to the station by car, well before the train's arrival, and remained seated in the car until it was time for departure. But the driver had informed his family about Meher Baba's arrival, and soon a crowd gathered near the car. The presence of the curious crowd perturbed Baba, so he entered the train. Due to the throng around the compartment, they could not even see him. Amidst the confusion, Baba and Gustadji departed for an unknown destination.

On 27th January 1924, a qawaali program was held in the Manzil-e-Meem compound, featuring Yasin Qawaal, who had sung for Baba several times before. The program lasted throughout the day, and Baba thoroughly enjoyed the singing. Vajifdar brought food from Irani Mansion, which Baba served to all those present.

Baba had been planning the trip to Persia for some weeks and more of the mandali had rejoined him at Bharucha Building. Eight men had been selected to join him on the journey including Vajifdar. On 29 th January 1924, those who were to travel to Persia had gone to the Persian Consulate with their respective passports.

 

 

Baba was travelling to Persia, when the boat docked at Karachi for a brief period, Pilamai and other devotees were present with flowers and food, and Baba was received with great reverence. The sea was calm as the boat steamed into the Persian Gulf, but a freezing, shiver-inducing cold storm swept over them after leaving the port of Bahrain. By the time they reached the port of Bushire, Baba, who until then had been quite well, also suffered nausea. Vajifdar, too, started feeling nauseous and vomited.

After passing through the ports of Lingeh, Henjam Island and Muscat, the cargo ship reached Karachi during the second week of March 1924. Vajifdar accompanied Nervous and Padri to Pilamai's house. Masaji went to hire a bullock cart to take their baggage to the railway station, for Baba had decided to depart immediately by train to Nepal. A tonga was brought instead, and the luggage was taken to the station, where Baba and the men rested in a waiting room. Vajifdar returned at 10:00 P.M. and he soon went to sleep, yet each man had to take turns on watch by Baba for an hour, as well as to safeguard the luggage against theft. They were carrying sacks of grain and rice with them throughout the journey, and the responsibility of looking after the food fell on Masaji and Vajifdar. (

 

 

On way Baba bathed at the public water tap in the train station. To ensure privacy, they hung curtains of blankets on all four sides, forming a makeshift shower stall around the tap. According to Baba's order, no coolies were to be hired; therefore, Masaji and Vajifdar had to carry all the luggage onto the train. Their belongings were heavy and cumbersome, but they managed to load everything on board in time to catch the Quetta Mail train.

Later, during the change of trains at Hyderabad station, Masaji lost his bedding roll. This mishap resulted in a heated quarrel between Gustadji and him. Baba afterward pacified Masaji by lending his own sheets and a woolen blanket to him. Vajifdar was assigned the duty of general manager in Behramji's absence, and he had to purchase their tickets, arrange for the food, and make certain that the luggage was properly loaded. Along with the headache of being the manager, Vajifdar also had to endure Baba's constant "arrows" (his teasing and criticisms). Baba had singled him out for goading, which proved an additional mental burden for Vajifdar. During their stay at Maghar, a conflict arose between groups of wandering sadhus. Baba intervened and stopped the quarrel. He explained to them about the way of life they should be leading if they were real sadhus and had renounced the ephemeral world. Soon after, Baba and the four remaining mandali (Adi, Gustadji, Masaji and Vajifdar) left Maghar for Kanpur in tongas and stayed at a dharamshala there. They bathed in the Ganges River and later fed a few more poor persons along the banks.

When they boarded a train at Kanpur, Baba instructed Vajifdar to return to Bombay. Adi to select a place within a radius of five or six miles from Sakori where he could stay with the mandali. The four men proceeded to their destinations, and Baba left the train at the Itarsi station alone.

Baba departed for Bombay on 2nd June 1924, with Vajifdar (who had been staying at Meherabad) and 3 other disciples. They reached Manmad in the afternoon. The journey had been comfortable, since their compartment was not crowded. They had lunch and then transferred to the Bombay passenger train, unknowingly settling in a compartment meant for the military. At the Deolali railway station, Baba sent one of the men to bring tea and dispatched another to buy a newspaper. Within minutes, a railway official came and told them to vacate the compartment, which was to be detached there. It was not easy to move all their heavy luggage, especially when the other compartments were now overcrowded. Baba told Ramjoo to arrange accommodations in a second class compartment. He went to the booking clerk who explained that it was too late to purchase new tickets, since the train was about to depart.

Ramjoo ran back and found Baba seated alone in a second class compartment with his luggage. Vajifdar, Ardeshir and Ghani were trying to transfer the remainder of the baggage to the compartment next to the engine. The whistle was blowing, and Ramjoo told Baba that the rest of the mandali had not yet boarded. Hearing this, Baba grabbed his luggage, and he and Ramjoo jumped down from the moving train. But as the train pulled away, Vajifdar, Ardeshir and Ghani were not seen on the platform and, after an inquiry, it was learned that they had boarded before the train had departed.

At Lahit railway the stationmaster telephoned Igatpuri and found out that Ardeshir and Ghani were waiting there; meanwhile Vajifdar had left for Deolali on a mail train to meet them.

 

Baba promptly had Vajifdar telegraphed not to stop there but to continue on to Lahit instead. When Vajifdar arrived from Deolali on a passenger train, he accompanied Baba and Ramjoo to Igatpuri on the same train.

Plans for building a house in Sukkur were discussed, and it was decided that the mandali themselves should build the house and work in the orchard. Establishing a trust was proposed, with the provision that only those wholly and solely dedicated to Meher Baba would be allowed to take part in the project. During the discussion, someone mentioned the problem of Sukkur's extreme heat, and those who had experienced its high temperature felt that the mandali could not tolerate it. Discussions of the pros and cons of moving to Sukkur went on for a week; finally the whole Sukkur plan was cancelled.

Instead, a visit to Karachi was suggested, and Ardeshir and Ramjoo were soon sent there, while Vajifdar remained with Baba in Quetta.

Baba ordered Vajifdar to remain behind in Bombay. Behramji had recently returned from Persia, and Baba instructed him, Gustadji, Baily, and Padri to purchase the necessities for the journey, such as bedding rolls, clothes, shoes, et cetera — for once the journey started they would not be allowed to buy anything. Thus the load which they were to carry became heavy. Padri was appointed the unwelcome duty of manager, with instructions to look after all arrangements during their travel. He also kept a diary of the journey. On 1st August 1924, they began their tour and headed to Poona.

From Rishikesh they proceeded to Laxman Jhula (Laxman's Swing), fourteen miles away. However, after a perilous drive across the suspension bridge, they turned back and reached Hardwar at one in the afternoon. In Hardwar, Baba decided that they should begin their foot journey to Sakori, and preparations were made. After fasting the whole day, the mandali had rice and dal in the late afternoon, but Baba still ate nothing. He had stomach pains and was feverish. Adi and Vajifdar were telegraphed messages; Vajifdar was instructed to meet them at the Laskar railway station.

Many were at the station, as Laskar is a major junction for people on pilgrimage to Hardwar.

Vajifdar arrived in afternoon the following morning with the latest news about matters in Bombay. Baba explained to him about the proposed foot journey to Sakori. Baba asked the four men whether they should proceed to Sakori by foot, searching for sadhus and saints on the way, or journey by train to different places of pilgrimage, and eventually return to Meherabad? Gustadji, Behramji, and Padri were eager to put an immediate end to the foot journey and continue touring by train. Unexpectedly, Baba also agreed to stop walking. With Vajifdar, they took a train from Laskar at 1:30 P.M. and reached Moradabad at six that evening.

On 14th September 1924, Baba left Bombay for Poona with Vajifdar and 3 disciples. From Poona, they immediately departed for Panjim. During the train ride, Vajifdar fell ill with a fever, and by the time they reached Londa his condition had worsened.

In Londa, on some pretext, Baba became angry with Vajifdar and ordered him to lie down on a bench on the station platform; Masaji was ordered to look after him, while Behramji was sent to bring fresh milk. Baba and Gustadji ate in a Hindu restaurant and brought food back for Behramji and Masaji. Vajifdar was given the milk and the journey resumed. Amazingly, by Baba's venting his rage at him, Vajifdar's condition steadily improved, and after a few hours he was completely well. (

One of Vajifdar's close friends had passed away, but before the man died. Vajifdar had promised to look after his widow. Baba advised Vajifdar to join his mandali, but Vajifdar felt obligated to honor his promise to his friend. Baba then told him to go his own way. It would be seven long years before Vajifdar saw Baba again. One old connection with Homi Vajifdar, the cricketer was outwardly severed.

In year 1930, dressed in western attire, Baba, and four of his mandali men departed by train from Marseilles for London. Seated in the train, while looking at Herbert, Baba remarked that Herbert's features and build resembled Vajifdar's. Herbert had worked hard and sincerely in taking care of the group's travel arrangements and comforts. For Baba and the mandali, Herbert had arranged for vegetarian food and in this way was paying close attention to every special request of the Master.

Baba left Navsari by train in morning on 2nd March 1932, for Bombay, where he arrived in evening. Coincidentally, the group met Homi Vajifdar, an old acquaintance, at the Dadar station. It was a touching scene when Vajifdar (the former cricket star who had stayed in Manzil-e-Meem) met Baba after seven years of separation.

Vajifdar came to Manekji's the next evening with his family and invited Baba to his home. Baba went to Vajifdar's home for a dhansak lunch on the 4th, and left Bombay for Nasik on 6th March 1932.

On 24th March 1932, at nine at night, Baba sailed from Bombay for England with his small group of six mandali, along with 800 other passengers, on the Italian ship Conte Rosso. Approximately 150 of Baba's lovers gave him a hearty and loving send-off on the docks at Ballard Pier. Waving farewell were Vajifdar and many mandali and Baba lovers from Bombay, Poona and Nasik.

Baba had been to Bombay on 17th August 1933 for the day, and went again on Monday, 4th September to book his boat passage for the upcoming trip to the West. Baba saw Vajifdar, a former disciple from the Manzil-e-Meem days and an all-India cricketer.

Baba and His group arrived in Surat the in morning and stayed at a dak bungalow. Pendu was sent for from Meherabad and arrived on the 27th. The group left with Baba by bus for Hajira Pier, a remote place, seventeen miles away on the coastline. The road there was horribly rough and muddy. Their bus got stuck frequently and they had to get out at times to help push it. Also, the bus would skid to the side of the road, and an accident was averted by inches at one intersection. Finally, they reached Mora and hired two bullock carts to complete the journey. Baba suddenly remembered Vajifdar. Praising him, Baba commented, "Vajifdar served me lovingly and humbly, obeying all of my orders, no matter how strict or ridiculous they seemed."

In 1959, at Bombay, Perviz had had a chance encounter with Homi Vajifdar, the former cricketer who had been in Baba's close contact at Manzil-e-Meem, but who had not seen Baba since 1933. Baba remembered him fondly and sent him a message of love. When Perviz delivered it, Vajifdar wept. Despite his feelings, Vajifdar never came to see Baba, and died in 1961. (Lord Meher-p-4528-1959)

 

 

88-VADEKAR E. N.

While the storm of opposition was blowing in Navsari, Baba and the mandali left Bombay in an especially reserved third class compartment amidst shouts of his praise. A Parsi stranger named E. N. Vadegar, entered the compartment and insisted on sitting by Baba's side as far as Dadar station.

Baba permitted him and the man said, "I have been intensely thirsting for your darshan for the past three years, and today I have the opportunity! I am so happy to have the chance to pass a little time in your company. I am deeply interested in saints and one of them, Sadhu Vaswani, has great reverence for you. He speaks highly of you and has deep regard for your divinity."

"They are all my lovers," Baba replied.

"Mirchandani too is a good saint," the man continued, "and I pray to you to bring him in your contact!"

"Because I am in everyone, I am in Mirchandani, too. I am everything."

  1. N. Vadegar expressed a desire to read some of Baba's books. He was given a copy of God Speaks. While paying for it, he said, "The money which I have now was to be donated to the agyari ([fire-temple)."

Remarking about the book, Vadegar said, "Baba has spoken through God Speaks! Baba is God Himself, and I have therefore seen God! Now I shall read what God says!" He added, "Parsis are most irrational in their expressions about Baba, but I am fortunate. It is all due to my mother's blessings. I am always in search of Truth. I have been doing so until this day. I am so pleased that I have met Baba and had the opportunity of his darshan."

The train stopped at Dadar and, bowing at Baba's feet, Vadegar got down. Baba gave him an orange as prasad. Many lovers were present on the station and some were to go to Navsari. Baba handed prasad to those who had come for darshan. At every station where the train halted, crowds lined up to hail Baba and rushed toward his coach when they saw that he was handing out prasad.

At one o'clock in the afternoon, Baba and the mandali arrived in Navsari, (Lord Meher-p-3922/33-1956)

 

98-VASANT

(A student)

From 8th January 1928, each boy would weep alone in a secluded spot. Vasant sat near Baba and wept on his legs. Memo, Pilamai, and Big Khorshed had come for a visit and were deeply moved by the outpouring of love from the boys.

Raosaheb and a few of the boys were called to the crypt a few days before, on the 19th, and Raosaheb read aloud couplets in Persian from Shams-e-Tabriz. Abdulla, Rajaram, and Lobhaji each lost bodily consciousness that day.  Vasant too was crying continuously. About Vasant, Baba remarked, "I will make him a kamal (remarkable, extraordinary) boy in the future."

Twenty names were written down. It was decided that these boys would remain with Baba while the others should attend school regularly, keeping to their fixed schedule of study, play, and meditation without fail. Studies were to continue as strictly as before, with punishment given to those who neglected them. Baba designated that the 20 boys selected be kept separately in the third hall of the Water Tank. They were allowed to be near Baba for a certain time each day.

Of the mandali, as noted, only Raosaheb was permitted to sit near Baba in the cabin with this group of boys. At one point,  Vasant also continued to weep day after day for hours; only Baba was able to console him.

After dinner and arti on 9th October 1928, Baba sent for the Prem Ashram boys to come to the Manzil. (It had been a long time since he had called them after dinner.) Rustom had recently brought some new gramophone records from Poona (including one featuring a clarinet) and Baba and the boys enjoyed them. Baba allowed the boys to bow down to him and each sat quietly afterward close to Baba. One boy, Vasant, continuously stared at Baba

Because of Baba's announced walking tour, preparations began on 12 th  January 1929, for sending away most of the boys of both the Meher and Prem Ashram. Telegrams were sent to the boys' parents or guardians, informing them the school was closing.

Aga Ali's father was the first to arrive the next day to take his son home. Vasant, and two other boys departed for their homes.

Later in June, Baba mentioned going out on tour and, in his absence, finding employment for the Arangaon boys: "They should be taught to work in a printing press or how to drive a motor vehicle. But I have to see that these youngsters of today, who are the men of tomorrow, are taught morals and are fully roused to a sense of duty. Without morals, whatever they are taught — even if they are clever and pass in first class — has no value."

Commenting about the older boys, Baba stated, "If they remain celibate and don't marry, it would really be for the best. They are the future workers of this Path. If boys like Dattu and Vasant are forced to marry, everything will go kaput!"

On 26 th June 1929, Vasant's parents took him home against his will to Jamkhed village, 60 miles away. The Muslim section of the ashram was then closed.

On 5 July 1929, the boy Vasant showed up at Meherabad. He had escaped from his parents and

Baba said, I feel for Vasant who is made to stay at home with his parents when his heart only longs to be by my side. I don't feel for anyone else like this, and this pain is my gift to Vasant Ali."

During this period, there were still five other Prem Ashram boys with whom Baba maintained close connection; they were staying at Akbar Press. Against his wishes, fifteen-year-old Vasant was staying at his parents' home in the village of Jamkhed, where he would barely speak to anyone, and answer only in monosyllables. Baba had once observed about the boy, "He is almost a saint already!"

On 1 st September 1929, Baba remarked, "Vasant is the best of the Prem Ashram boys. I must not leave Meherabad on my next tour without giving him the benefit of my company for at least half an hour. If he learned that I was here and had left without seeing him, he would feel so bad he might even die!"

The next day, Baba was driven the 60 miles to Jamkhed especially to meet this lucky youth. Vasant was overjoyed at the good fortune of having Baba's darshan, and was profoundly humbled to know that the Master had come so far to see him. (Lord Meher-p-1077/78-1929)

 

 

99-VASANT DESHMUKH

(Chhagan's brother)

In year 1954, Baba visited ashram of Upasni Maharaj in Sakori. Upon his arrival in Sakori, Baba was welcomed by the residents of the Sakori ashram and villagers singing bhajans. A few rifles were fired in ceremonial salute. Baba's car stopped, he was garlanded with flowers, tikka (a vermilion mark) was applied to his forehead, and people started bowing down to him. Gulal (red-colored powder) was sprinkled over the hood of  car, and garlands were placed on it in decoration. Baba's car was then taken in a procession to the ashram. A beautifully caparisoned horse and a band were in the vanguard, and, on each side of Baba's car, men wearing red belts and carrying silver staffs formed an honor guard.

The procession halted in front of Upasni Maharaj's old temple. Chhagan's brother Vasant Deshmukh, the chief priest of Sakori, garlanded Baba and offered a coconut to him. Another coconut, which Baba touched, was broken and its water strewn on the road, sanctifying the area. Kirtans were lovingly and vigorously being chanted. Baba took a pair of finger-cymbals from one of the kirtan singers and played it for a short time, while sitting in the car.

As Baba was leaving the temple room, Jiji, pointing to a photograph of Maharaj on the wall, informed Baba that once a noise like a gunshot was heard emanating from the photograph. Baba touched the picture and told Jiji he was happy to hear that.

At 10:15 A.M., Baba entered Upasni Maharaj's hut, where a number of men and women had already gathered and were singing devotional songs. Baba sat down on a cushion on the stone flooring. One of Maharaj's devotees said a few words in Marathi welcoming Baba's visit, and Vasant then entertained Baba with his combined singing and humorous gesturing, which made Baba laugh very much.

Baba then introduced the five Sakori men." Asking Vasant Deshmukh stood up, and Baba stated, "Here is Sakori's high priest. But even his priesthood will not save me from violent death." 3(lord Meher-p-635-1954

Coming to know of Baba's visit to Sakori, lovers from Ahmednagar, Poona, Bombay and other places had gathered there. Baba left Meherazad at about 7:30 A.M. on Thursday, 26 January 1956, Baba reached Rahata village (one mile from Sakori) an hour later. In Rahata, Adi delivered Godavri's message, and Baba was happy to hear it.

Baba reached Sakori, the residents of the ashram and his lovers received him a few hundred yards away. the manager of the ashram, garlanded him even before he could get out of the car. Baba was taken in a procession with music and singing. In the vanguard was a beautifully decorated white horse (symbolic of Kalki, the Avataric incarnation in the Kali Yuga). When Baba came to the temple, the high priest, Vasant Deshmukh (Chhagan's brother), performed puja.

Accompanying Baba in his car and another car were eight close disciples left for Sakori on invitation of Godavari man cheif disciples of Upasani Maharaj. Many lovers from Ahmednagar also went, including Gulmai. Baba reached Sakori in morning and hundreds crowded around his car. He was taken by car in a special procession through the ashram gates, led by a caparisoned white horse and men carrying silver staffs. Continuous cries of "Avatar Meher Baba ki jai!" reverberated. Baba's wheelchair had been brought, and he was wheeled to the ashram temple where Vasant performed puja. Godavri Mai and the other kanyas sang his arti.

The kanyas then garlanded Baba and took darshan. A pandal had been erected opposite a large banyan tree under which Upasni Maharaj had sat for many years. Baba was helped into a armchair on the dais inside. The tent was full to overflowing. Godavri was sitting near Baba on the dais. This message from Baba was read over the microphone: (Lord Meher-p-4154-1957)

 

 

96-VASWANI T. L.

On 23 rd March 1957, Joyous singing and shouts of “Jai Avatar Meher Baba!” accompanied Baba’s car as it slowly made its way through the crowd toward Saint Mira High School. The car was decorated with garlands, and in the vanguard of the parade a band was playing. Vaswani received Baba at the door of the school and embraced him tightly. Tears rolled down his cheeks as he led Baba to a private room, where he sat with him for a while. Baba comforted him and was then carried in a chair to the school’s Sanctuary Hall, where he was seated on the dais. Vaswani sat on his right and Irene Conybeare was given a chair opposite them with some other people.

After recitations from the Bhagavad Gita and kirtan singing by the students, Vaswani, deeply moved, paid tribute to Baba in his welcome remarks over the microphone. The following is a part of his talk:

Sisters and brothers, children of the One Divine Mother! I speak in the presence of one whom his disciples in different parts regard as the Ancient One.

For thirty years and more, He who is in our midst today has borne witness to the truth that there is something better than speech. That is silence. It is, to my mind, the truth of Truths. He has spoken to the world through silence. His witness to the “Kingdom of Silence” went into my heart many years ago. In this age of noise, he has taught the truth: Be silent! . . .

I have been impressed, too, with another truth in the life of Beloved Baba. He is a lover of the simple life. He is simple, and therefore he rejoices in the company of the little ones. In his message … he said it did his heart good to come in contact with the little ones, the children of the Mira Schools.

There is a third thing too which I have noticed in regard to Meher Baba – the smile on his lips. A beautiful smile plays on his lips always. He has suffered as perhaps not many have. He has experienced pain as not many have. But there is always a beautiful smile playing on his lips.

His silence, his simplicity, and his smile – these are his three gifts to us. I bow down to him with love and humility in my heart.

On Baba’s behalf C. D. Deshmukh spoke eloquently for five minutes, emphasizing Baba’s Avatar hood and mission. The hall was full to capacity with Vaswani’s students and followers. Baba’s lovers had to stand outside by the gate.

Baba asked that this message from him be read out to the students:

The youth of today is the ruling force of tomorrow. All things have a small beginning; the seedling grows into a tree, the stream into a river and the child grows into a man to use or misuse the lessons he has absorbed in life as a youth. But even after he has grown into a man, he often remains a child in the spiritual sense of the word. The world is the kindergarten and school necessary for the spiritual lessons man must learn through countless lives of experiencing the opposites – such as pain and pleasure, joy and suffering, good and bad, wealth and poverty, et cetera.

All growth is gradual, and it is only through slow and gradual stages that man begins truly to grow up and discover his True Self and to relinquish the childish playthings of hate, greed and anger through selfless service and love. In the spiritual school also, there are many grades to be passed which few have the courage and determination to go through. Just as you need masters and instructors to guide you along the path of your studies, so there exist Perfect Masters who can guide you along the path of the spirit to the glorious destination of Godhood. Few have the good fortune to meet and follow such a spiritual Guide – when you do, you must earn his grace and be worthy of his love.

Do not balk at the discipline given by your parents and teachers. Discipline in small ways leads to the greater necessary discipline of self. Do not try to conquer others – conquer your self and you will have conquered the world. The simplest way to do this is to love God. Begin to love God by loving your fellow-beings. Begin to see God by seeing Him in all beings and things. Give without thought of return. Serve without thought of reward. God is everywhere, in everything. Most of all, He is right within yourself. You do not exist for the world – the world exists for you.

There is an amusing illustration of this in the story of the ant. An ant was trying to cross a stream on a leaf. Midstream the leaf, tossed by the wind, overturned and the ant cried: “Help, help, the world is drowning!”

A frog close by said: “What rubbish. The world is not drowning; you mean you are drowning.”

“Well,” said the ant, “once I drown the world might as well not exist for me. So for me it means not only that I am drowning but that the world is drowning too.”

In the same way, all existence is within you. God is to be found within yourself, and once you find Him you have found the only treasure worth finding. I give you my blessings that you love God and find Him. (Lord Meher, American ed. Bhau Kalchuri, Vol. 15, pp. 5157-5160).

Accommodations for Baba in Nagpur had been made at the bungalow of Y. P. Verma, a barrister, in the Gokulpeth locality on West High Court Road..

2294-VISHWANATH

A high Hindu priest

At Meherabad, in March 1925, two humble Hindu temples were constructed out of bamboo matting. One was meant for the low-caste Harijans and the other for the higher caste Brahmins. A man named Vishwanath was appointed as the high-caste priest. The simple temples had photographs of gurus and pictures of favorite Hindu devas (Ganesh, Dattatrey and Hanuman) hung on the walls. The photographs of the gurus included Babajan, Sai Baba, Upasni Maharaj, and Meher Baba. The children of Arangaon would worship and sing bhajans in the Harijan temple. During Hindu festivals, both temples were decorated and the holy days were observed with great ceremony and devotion. (Lord Meher-p-569-1925)

 

 

2314-WALU PAWAR

(Mandali woman)

(Refer Fortunate souls Volume-3)

An old lady, completely bent at right angles at her waist came in.  She would put her hand on her forehead to avoid the glare on her eyes so that she could see Baba in the crypt.  When asked whether she could see Baba, she just shook her head in the negative.  She seemed to have got hypermature cataracts in both yes!  She was led to the landing of the crypt and only after she had sat down there and a

Torch light focused on Baba’s face see Him.

It was then that Eruch told us that she was Valu, an old and faithful devotee of Baba from the early twenties.  She was very dear to Baba and though she could not see Baba well, Baba saw her and acknowledged her long, sincere, unselfish and loving services for the Avatar of the Age.  Tears came into her eyes as she remembered the years she had spent with Baba.  They were tears of love.

"Who weeps for love, he weeps the best.

Who cries for else, he does but the jest.” (Meher Baba’s Last sahwas-p-42 (Dr. H. P. Bharucha)

 

2319-VISHNU CHAVAN & WIFE

Vishnu Chavan also came to Baba's bungalow. Although he had been in Baba's contact for years, Baba did not see him. In fact, none of the Poona lovers were permitted to see Baba, since he was still in seclusion. But Chavan persisted and sent word to Baba that he did not desire anything except his blessing. So, for the purpose of receiving his blessing, Baba instructed him to go to Meherabad in a few weeks, on a certain date.

On the appointed day, Chavan went to Meherabad and then came to Meherazad, where Baba was staying by then. Baba warned him, "To digest my blessing is infinitely difficult. You do not understand the meaning of it. You do not know what it is. You will have to face tremendous hardships. Do you know what my grace means? You will be stripped of everything you own! You will be on the streets! Those who dare to seek and are privileged to receive my grace are stripped of everything. They have no roof over their heads. They wear only loincloths."

Baba again warned him, "Great courage is required to assimilate my blessing. So don't ask for it. Ask for something else."

"I only want your blessing," Chavan insisted.

Solemnly Baba gestured, "All right, take it. I give you my blessing." And with it, Chavan left to return to Poona. In a short time, true to Baba's words, Chavan fell on very hard times and gradually life got worse and worse. Chavan was married with a few children. Some months after this meeting, he found himself homeless and penniless.

For some time, he and his family lived in the local Gadge Maharaj dharamshala in Poona. After a while, they were forced to vacate, and Turekar, a Baba lover in the police force, took pity on them and allowed them to stay in a storeroom at his bungalow. Months passed. Chavan, unable to bear the conditions of his life brought on by Baba's "blessing," contemplated suicide. By chance, he met Eruch on a street and disclosed what had happened to him. The news reached Baba, and Chavan was called to Guruprasad.

Chavan came and prostrated himself before Baba. Baba lovingly inquired about his family and then stated, "When you first came to me, I warned you that courage was needed to assimilate my blessing. You do not have that courage. Now, what do you want?"

"Baba, help me. The landlord evicted me and my family from our house and removed all our possessions. I don't have a single paisa with me, and the children are starving."

"All right. I will take back my blessing and give you some monetary help. But always be honest and don't forget me." Baba asked Nariman to give Chavan Rs.1, 000, and Chavan took the money and left, pleased.

The following year, when Baba was again in Poona, he asked K. K. Ramakrishnan, "Do you know Vishnu Chavan? Have you asked for or taken any money from him (for the Poona Center work)? I know you are mad with your Center project."

Ramakrishnan told Baba, "Yes, I know him. He appears to be a big man now. He has acquired the Bombay agency of an industrial or mercantile company and has become quite rich. He lives behind the railway station and goes everywhere by taxi. But I have not asked him for a donation. His wife sends two rupees to the Center every month. That is all they give."

Baba warned Ramakrishnan not to take any money from Chavan. "It is all right if you accept one or two rupees for the Center work, but no large sum, even if he gives it on his own. Beware."

Again, some time passed. One day in Guruprasad, when Maharani Shantadevi was sitting by Baba, Chavan arrived in a very sad mood. Baba asked what was troubling him. Chavan equivocated, professing innocence about charges of fraud and embezzlement that had been brought against him. Baba told him not to worry, if he had done nothing illegal, and he left. But soon afterwards, Chavan was arrested, found guilty and sentenced to several years in prison. The mandali and local lovers believed he had been wrongly convicted. When he was released, Chavan came for Baba's darshan, and Baba asked him again, "Tell me the truth. Did you commit the fraud?" Chavan finally admitted his guilt, and Baba admonished him, "Never do so again."

Despite having failed to follow Baba's advice about remaining honest, Baba had not "exposed" Chavan and, in fact, had lovingly seen to the financial well-being of his wife and children while he was in prison. Chavan learned an invaluable lesson in following the Master's orders. (Lord Meher-p-5143)

 

2331-WAGH B.T.

In 1954, during Sakori visit, procession halted in front of Upasani Maharaj of Temple. Vasant Deshmukh, the chief priest of Sakori, garlanded Baba and offered a coconut to him. Baba made Godavri sit on his left side and Jiji on his right. Jiji was so overcome that tears rolled down her cheeks. Baba patted her on the head. B. T.

158-YADAV KAMBLE

On 2nd January 1960, the newly-built Avatar Meher Baba Arangaon Center was decorated with buntings and with flowers, which gave off a sweet fragrance. Every house in the village left nothing undone to beautify itself, awaiting the Avatar's arrival.

Seeing Baba, the villagers could not control their feelings, and loud cheering of "Avatar Meher Baba ki jai!" burst forth. The Arangaon Center had recently been constructed, and this was the first time Baba was gracing the small room. A ribbon had been tied across the door, which Baba cut. Entering the premises, Baba took darshan of his own photograph there. Coming out after a while, he sat under a pandal, erected outside the structure where a devotee, named Yadav Kamble, devoutly sang his compositions in praise of Baba's divinity.

On 19 th November 1967, Baba sent for his lovers and devotees from Arangaon. All those staying at the Family Quarters in Meherabad (Jangle's family and Walu), as well as Mansari and Kaikobad's family on the hill were invited, and they began to arrive in Meherazad at 9:00 A.M. About 300 persons in all, travelling in bullock carts, buses, bicycles, or on foot came, and the close ones came in a hired station wagon. Yadav Kamble and few others sang before Baba. (Lord Meher-p-5298-1967)

2360-YESHWANTRAO HOLKAR (MRS)

(Maharani of Indore)

The ship, in which Baba and mandali travelling, docked in Port Said on the morning of 2nd October 1933.

Mrs. Yeshwantrao Holkar came to Baba's cabin for his darshan with her secretary. At the time, Baba was out for his morning walk on deck and someone directed her there. As she approached, Chanji intercepted her, saying, "Meher Baba only gives darshan after making an appointment. I will have to ask his permission and let you know." The secretary explained that the maharani had not come to ask anything of Meher Baba, but that she only wanted his darshan. Chanji reiterated that he would ask Baba and inform them. But they followed him and came face-to-face with Baba before Chanji could seek Baba's permission. (Lord Meher-p-1459-1933)

 

 

2361-YASIN QUWAAL

In the evening of 9th May 1923, with great éclat and in regal style, Rustom and Freiny were married according to Zoroastrian custom. That morning Baba was dressed in a new suit of clothes, and puja was performed before him. A European band and various entertainments were enjoyed by all the other 200 guests. A private qawaali program was staged for Baba, the mandali and a few selected members of Rustom's family, led by Yasin Qawaal who had been brought from Bombay just for the occasion.

The following afternoon there was another qawaali program. Baba thoroughly enjoyed the music. The Wine of the Divine Song flowed freely during such programs, especially qawaali programs by such an accomplished singer as Yasin. Baba himself was an exceptional singer and always took great interest in such programs, and listened intently to the singer. (Lord Meher-p-418-1923)

 

2362-YEKTAI KAIKHUSHRU BOMAN

During 1930, in Nasik besides mandali, Kaikhushru Boman Yektai remained with Baba who had joined the mandali a year or so before). (Lord Meher-p-1132-1930)

On 12 May 1930, Manek Shroff came for the Master's darshan. He expressed his wish to be included among them and, in spite of Baba's admonitions, he persisted. So Baba sent him to Meherabad to remain there in seclusion, subsisting only on milk. Kaikhushru Yektai was to do the same. (Lord Meher-p-1174-1930)-

Baba's darshan was held on 1st June 1930. A great crowd of more than a hundred persons appeared for, and there was a large feast at which Baba himself served the food. (Lord Meher-p-1181-1930)

Baba left Kolhapur on Sunday, 7th September 1930 and arrived in Bijapur, where he met up with other members of the mandali. On the 4th October 1930, according to Baba's instructions Yektai broke his long fast. (Lord Meher-p-1199-1930)

2368-YUSUF-2

(A boy in Walki)

In year 1930, as directed by Baba, Chhagan was out looking for a boy, he spotted a handsome youth working in a restaurant in Wai. He asked the boy if he would come with him to Panchgani, and the boy replied he would first have to ask his employer. Finally after much persuasion, the manager agreed.

 

Chhagan brought the boy to Baba who at first liked him very much. But after a few minutes, Baba disapprovingly noticed a small cut on the boy's leg, and directed Chhagan, "Take the boy to Meherabad, where Padri can treat his wound. Tell Padri to bring him to Panchgani once the wound is healed."

 

Chhagan was puzzled by Baba's instructions, as the boy's injury seemed minor. He wondered why Baba was making such a fuss, forcing him to take the boy all the way to Meherabad, when a local doctor could easily have treated the wound. But he did not say anything and, before he left, Baba further instructed him to be sure to contact Sadashiv Patil in Poona on the way and deliver a message, which Baba dictated.

 

Chhagan then left Panchgani with the boy, whose name was Yusuf. In Poona, as he was nearing Sadashiv's house, a Muslim woman who was filling her water vessels at a public well saw the boy and suddenly began calling out, "Yusuf, Yusuf!" She came running to the boy, embraced him and cried, "Yusuf, my son, where have you been? I can't believe it is really you! I have been longing for sight of you day and night for years! My son, have you forgotten your own mother?"

 

A crowd gathered and Chhagan could not understand what was happening. He grew frightened by the presence of so many people and forced his way to Sadashiv's house, where he described the situation to him. Sadashiv approached the woman and questioned her. He found out the woman's only son had disappeared from home five years before, and she and her husband's search had proved fruitless. The parents were overwrought with distress at their failure to locate their lost child. Grief-stricken, they had all but given up hope of ever seeing him again.

 

Chhagan then asked Sadashiv, "What am I to do now" Baba's order was to take the boy to Meherabad." Sadashiv sent a telegram to Baba explaining the situation. Baba's reply promptly came, instructing Chhagan to leave the boy with his parents and return to Panchgani. Only then did Chhagan understand why Baba had sent him on this journey. The message Baba had given Chhagan to convey to Sadashiv was nothing important, but Baba wished to reunite the child with his heartbroken parents. (Lord Meher-p-1166/71930)

Concerning Meher Ashram, a new proposal was discussed to open the boarding school in Meherabad instead of Ahmednagar, though Borker preferred Ahmednagar.

Baba asked Ann, "Do you know the story of Saint Mira?" She said she did not, and Baba gestured to Eruch to relate a few incidents from Mira's life.

Afterwards Baba remarked: "Mira was not born at the time when Krishna manifested himself as the Avatar in human form. Even then her love surpassed that of the gopis. In this sense her love is unique, unparalleled.  (Lord Meher-p-4757-1961)

SATHA NUSSERWAN NAOROJI

B/o Pillo Satha

NUSSERWAN NAOROJI SATHA LOOKED BABA AS ZOROASTER AND HAD GURUMANTRA.

On 27th April 1924, a Zoroastrian of Ahmednagar named Nusserwan Naoroji Satha, 27, went out for a long stroll with his younger brother Piloo and happened to pass by Meherabad. From a distance they saw Meher Baba sitting alone under a tree in a majestic pose. Nusserwan thought: "Who is this person? He looks like Zoroaster!" He approached, while Piloo kept aloof, and the Master lovingly had him sit beside him. They sat quietly for a while and Nusserwan kept having these thoughts: "Is he really Zoroaster? Is this the Prophet?"

Baba immediately remarked, "Zoroaster is born again, but people do not recognize him!" Nusserwan was startled, realizing the Master had read his thoughts. Baba then asked, "What do you do?"

In a sincere manner, Nusserwan answered, "I am a follower of Mahatma Gandhi and am taking an active part in the movement for national independence."

Baba smilingly replied, "Give up all thought of political independence and concentrate on Self-Realization, which is real independence and true self-rule." Nusserwan could not comprehend what he meant. Baba concluded, advising him, "Continue coming here and you will understand all that I am telling you."

Nusserwan was from a large Zoroastrian family and, due to his first meeting at Meherabad, the entire Satha family became closely connected with Meher Baba, including Nusserwan's sister Gaimai Jessawala and her family.

In 1945, Nusserwan had once gone to Meherabad for Baba's darshan. He had a coverlet thrown over his shoulders for warmth. Baba asked him for it, and Nusserwan willingly gave it to him. Baba was particular about the covering, and would use it during the night. This chaddar proved the means through which the entire Satha and Damania families came into Baba's close contact, because soon after taking it, the rest of the family came for his darshan. Baba's keeping the sheet so carefully, and using it for so many years, showed his love for and connection with this fortunate family.

In 1925, on another visit to Baba at Meherabad to see Baba (before Baba's silence began), Nusserwan wished to ask Baba for a mantra upon which he could meditate. It had been on his mind for a long time, but he did not say anything about it to Baba. When he came to Meherabad, Baba called him to his Jhopdi and said, "Today, I'm going to give you a guru-mantra."

He then whispered into Nusserwan's ear, "Remember Ahuramazda daily with all your heart."

Referring to this incident, Baba asked Nusserwan, "Do you still want a mantra?"

Nusserwan replied, "No, it isn't necessary. Receiving your love is my mantra." (Lord Meher-p-2462-1945)

72-SATYA MANG,

A notorious criminal

Satyamang a notorious criminal of Ahmednagar district happened to come to Meherabad with his gang for Baba’s darshan. He had come hoping that with the Master’s blessing, his chosen profession would continue to be lucrative and that he would not be apprehended.

When he arrived, Baba was talking with about fifty of the mandali at the Makan. Baba was informed of a group’s arrival. No one had any idea who the men really were. Satya Mang and his accomplices sat on the ground before Baba after first prostrating themselves at Baba’s feet. Baba suddenly became very serious and remained quiet for a few minutes. He then asked, “Where do you come from and where are you going?” When Satya Mang had answered, Baba looked directly at him and spelled out, “You should be wearing bangles!”

Satya Mang did not follow the meaning of this and asked the mandali what Baba had said. Baba again repeated, “You should put bangles around your wrists! Why aren’t you wearing them?”

When one of the mandali explained, Satya Mang asked, “Why? What have I done?”

“You are a coward!” exclaimed Baba.

“What do you mean?” Satya Mang shouted.

“A hefty man like you can extract water from stone (meaning that he could work hard and earn an honest livelihood). But instead, you are a dacoit – a thief and rob people. Your very name strikes terror in the hearts of women and children who are unable to sleep when they think of you.”

Until then, the mandali did not know who this man was, but after hearing Baba, they felt sure that this must be the infamous Satya Mang who held the people of the district in fear and whom the police had been unable to catch despite their best efforts.

Baba continued, “You support yourself on illegal gains. Aren’t you ashamed to grow a moustache? You are not a man – you are a woman!”

Satya Mang replied, “I inherited my profession. If I do not pursue it, how am I to maintain myself and my family?”

“Can’t you find another occupation other than robbing people? What are the rest of the people in the world doing? Do you mean to say that everyone in the world lives on stolen property?”

To make such statements to this dangerous criminal was unheard of, for even the police were terrified of Satya Mang and his gang. But this wolf became like a lamb before Meher Baba (whom he called Maharaj) and humbly asked, “Maharaj, show me what I am to do. I am ready to give up this way of life if I find some employment to maintain my family.”

Baba replied, “That can be arranged immediately, but how can you stop stealing? Every blood cell of your body contains its germs!”

“No, Maharaj, I swear I will turn my face from such a life if provision is made for my children. Once that is done, I will never rob again.”

Baba then asked seriously, “Do you know before whom you are swearing? Do you have any idea to whom you are giving this promise? If you break your promise to God, your life will be ruined. God knows everything. Do you understand?”

“Yes, Maharaj, I understand. I will never repeat my past actions. I will never break my promise!”

At this, Baba stretched out his hand and gestured, “Give me your promise!” Immediately Satya Mang came forward and touched Baba’s palm with his own. Baba then warned, “If you go back on your word to me, you will become completely paralyzed. Remember this.”

Baba then arranged for the maintenance of his family and instructed him to come to Meherabad once a week. From that day on, the threat of robbery disappeared from Ahmednagar district and people were greatly impressed by this “miraculous occurrence.” Everyone was amazed at Baba’s intervention. For a robber like Satya Mang, who had successfully eluded the police for years, to submit to a spiritual Master and surrender to him was something unheard of.

Satya Mang held to his promise and remained faithful for some time, but again his hands began itching with the desire for stealing. He stealthily entered a house one night to rob it, and was about to steal a few valuable articles when he saw Baba standing in front of him! His body shuddered with fright and he recalled Meher Baba’s words:

God is ever present. He sees everything.

Nothing is hidden from Him!

Suddenly everything became dark as if he had gone blind. Satya Mang grew pale and closed his eyes. When he opened them, Baba had disappeared. Leaving the stolen goods behind, he hastened to Meherabad to find Baba, and later when he saw Baba, tears streamed down his cheeks as he confessed, “Maharaj, please forgive me this once. I have gone back on my word.”

Feigning ignorance, Baba asked, “What are you talking about? What happened?”

Satya Mang cried out, “God, you know everything. Forgive me!” and he fell at Baba’s feet.

Baba pardoned him because of his sincere repentance and warned, “Never do it again. Paramatma knows everything and sees all.”

Thereafter, Satya Mang never committed a crime or theft again and the police even availed themselves of his help in tracking down other criminals. Satya Mang made it a practice to be present at Meherabad every Thursday and take part in the gatherings there.

Faith in Meher Baba’s divinity was born in him and he completely changed. At one word from Baba, he was ready to sacrifice his life. On one occasion, he begged the Master for the chance to serve him. Baba replied, “When the appropriate time comes, I will surely give you the opportunity to serve me.” (1)

(1) Satya Mang proved to be of help to the mandali when Baba left Meherabad for his Nasik stay years later. He was in charge of security during the mass darshan in Nasik in 1937, on the occasion of Baba’s forty-third birthday. (Lord Meher, Bhau Kalchuri, Vol. 3, pp. 811 – 814)

Baba Himself narrated about Satyamang:

Once, in lower Meherabad, when there was the big colony and I had dissolved it all and moved to a new place named Toka a few miles away, a few persons were kept here. An Irani who was good in heart, but a bit cracked (crazy), had to keep guard at night. He had to shout out at intervals "All's well!" to keep himself awake, as well as to show others that he was awake. At that time, there was a very notorious thief called Satya Mang, who had robbed and killed a number of people. One night this Satya Mang had robbed a man on the road from here to Ahmednagar

The following night, something happened to this dear Irani: A lost donkey wandered here and he thought it was Satya Mang! So he awakened everyone and all were nervous. One old mandali fainted. All the time, the man was shouting "Satya Mang is here!" After a time, a lantern was lit, and it was seen that there was nobody there; then the door was opened and the donkey was seen.

When I heard this story, I thought this illusion beats even the universal illusion I created ages ago! Then, I sent for Satya Mang, who was so proud of his strength that the police feared him and the villagers were afraid to report his threats. "I don't know Meher Baba, get out," he said to my messenger, and he abused my name.

But later on he came, saying he had seen Baba in a dream sitting on his chest. I was sitting as usual, and as soon as he saw me, Satya Mang prostrated himself and started weeping. I made him sit quietly by my side. "I want you from today to give up robbing and killing and to disperse your gang; and for your living, come to me and I will supply you [with money]," I said. He promised.

From that day, Satya Mang gave up his old ways. Once, there was a lapse; after some months, he thought of robbing someone. A moneylender had left his house vacant, and Satya Mang was tempted to rob it. He broke in, and saw the form of Baba standing at the doorway. So he came at once to me and said, "You have saved me." When I went away to Persia (in 1929) and left only one family here, I told him to look after Meherabad.

At times, I have plenty of money. At other times, I have little or none. In the New Life, I begged for food and made the mandali beg. Satya Mang had stopped robbing. He was living close by, and he brought food to the family, begging from village to village for them. (Lord Meher-p-3607/8-1954)

In darshan program Satya Mang standing among the poor, Baba once again interrupted the ceremony when his turn came and narrated his history as a reformed criminal. Standing before Baba, Satya Mang began weeping, and his tears testified to his love for Baba and his faith in him. (Lord Meher-p-3888-1955)

 

 

SAWALARAM

(A blind singer)

SAWALARAM A BLIND SINGER FROM AHMEDNAGAR WAS PRESENTED AN EXPENSIVE HARMONIUM AS PRASAD

In year 1925, Baba presented a blind singer from Ahmednagar named Sawlaram with the expensive harmonium as his prasad. (Lord Meher-p-626-1925)

 

 

 

80-SAYANI HYDER IBRAHIM a devout Muslim professor of Deccan College

 

 

PROF. HYDER IBRAHIM SAYANI A DEVOUT MUSLIM PROFESSOR OF DECCAN COLLEGE WAS INTRODUCED TO BABA.

While at Manzil-e-Meem, Baba would seldom allow outsiders to meet him. However, on Sunday, 2 July 1922, a devout Muslim professor of Deccan College named Hyder Ibrahim Sayani was introduced to the Master.

In the course of conversation, Baba suddenly interjected, "These days I put on a Turkish fez cap whenever I go out." Turning to the men, he said, "Isn't that so?"

Although the men replied in the affirmative, no one could grasp why the Master suddenly made such a statement, for the fact was Baba rarely wore a fez. During this period, he almost never wore a hat, but always wrapped a scarf or kerchief around his head.

When Professor Sayani came out of Baba's room, he told the men, "Meher Baba answered my question without my asking it!" The men inquired what he meant and he explained, "My brother has been sitting beside the tomb of Maulana Saheb in Bandra for the last 20 years. Today, he instructed me to go meet Meher Baba and ascertain what sort of hat he wears. But when I came, I found the Master bare-headed. I was puzzled and embarrassed as to how to ask him, but he settled my mind by answering the question before I could pose it."

Others from the nearby community were less gracious. One morning a group of Muslims noisily entered the compound and demanded to meet Meher Baba. "If the person who calls himself a pir does not show himself," they rudely announced, "we will enter the house forcefully and teach him a lesson he will never forget!" It was a tense, serious situation. Behramji was on watch and informed Baba, who was on the top floor meeting with the mandali. (Lord Meher-p-303/4-1922)

 

80-SHAHANE DNYANESHWAR RAMCHANDRA & MUKTAI

(Nick named Kaka Shahane –Father of Mohan Shahane)

DNYANESHWAR RAMCHANDRA SHAHANE (NICKNAMED KAKA SHAHANE) A RESIDENT OF AHMEDNAGAR BESEECHED BABA ABOUT HIS SON'S AFFLICTION.

A devoted Baba lover from Ahmednagar. He met baba many times. The incidents and conversation with Baba is recorded in chronological order:

In year 1925, a respectable elder named Dnyaneshwar Ramchandra Shahane, (Nicknamed Kaka Shahane) a resident of Ahmednagar, owned land near Arangaon. He often came to Meherabad for Baba's darshan. His son Mohan was suffering from a disease which was not being cured despite the best possible medical treatment. One day Shahane beseeched the Master about his son's affliction, and Baba advised him to keep his son at Meherabad where he would recover.

Gradually Mohan did regain his health. After some time, Kaka Shahane, as he was called, moved to Meherabad with his entire family and all began living according to Baba's instructions. They were accommodated in the Family Quarters, a bungalow rented by Baba on a piece of land near the village. Shahane became completely devoted to the Master and surrendered to Baba's guidance for the rest of his life. Baba always cared for the whole family's maintenance, which proved not insignificant since Shahane and his wife, Manutai, had four daughters and three sons. (Lord Meher-p-569-1925)

On 18th June 1925, Baba again mentioned his upcoming silence: "Within a few days, I will begin keeping silence. All of you remember to hold fast to me- no matter what."

On Thursdays, Baba and the mandali had begun visiting Kaka Shahane's house, the Family Quarters, in Arangaon, for afternoon tea. Here the men would enjoy fine tea with milk, for a change, and snacks. (Lord Meher-p-591-1925)

At the time of the Poona Hut, Baba had spoken of the Maratha king, Shivaji, and hinted that Shivaji was one of his minor incarnations. Baba repeated something similar. To Kaka Shahane's that day, when he wrote on his slate and swore it was true: "Although European historians paint Shivaji in a different light, there was no warrior so brave, so sincere, so clever, so gentle, or so pure. He was a perfect devotee and a true disciple of his Spiritual Master, Swami Ramdas. It is the same Shivaji that is now present in this form to perform a great part in the tremendous spiritual outburst that is meant to occur in the near future."

Then Baba remarked, "I was present at the time of Jesus, too, but that is another matter. It is a secret, but a part of it I have thus revealed."

In reference to Shivaji, Arjun asked, "Are the men of that time present here?"

Baba nodded and then asking for the slate, he wrote: "Although many were with him, about 24 played a key role at that time. Ten out of these 24 will once again, within two years, be the instruments of great spiritual workings in the world. Afzal Khan, who was killed by Shivaji, will assume the lion's share of the work. One foreigner at that time played a key role, too, and he likewise will be one of the most prominent members of Shivaji's circle. Shivaji has now realized Truth, and through him at the appointed time in the near future, these companions will also realize they played a powerful part in the scheme. (Lord Meher-p-603-1925)

In December 1925, to manage the growing estate at Meherabad, a committee was formed along the lines of the Gutta in Manzil-e-Meem. It was named the Circle Committee and the chairman, vice chairman and secretary were Rustom, Behramji, and Vishnu, respectively. Kaka Shahane was one among 13 the committee members of disciples. (Lord Meher-p-630-1925)

On 25th March 1926, at Shahane's residence in Family Quarters, Baba gave the following discourse on intelligence:

Intelligence when it is not thinking is unconsciousness and may be likened to sound sleep. Thinking and imagination are latent in intelligence. When intelligence thinks of itself, it realizes Its Self and is God. When it thinks about imagination, it is the world, mind, body, and ignorance.

For example, take a gramophone record. When it is not being played, it is in a state similar to sound sleep, like unconscious intelligence (when it is not thinking); but when the phonograph needle is put on the record, it starts to play. This is like the thinking of imagination that is latent in intelligence and becomes manifest while the mind is thinking.

Take as another example an ocean to represent intelligence, which is calm at first. But when the wind blows (the desire of intelligence to know itself), there is movement in the still waters (intelligence begins to think), forming innumerable waves, and the result is an uncountable number of bubbles. When intelligence starts thinking, it creates waves (universes), which form bubbles (different worlds).

The ocean (intelligence) is there in the bubbles (imagination), but in a limited form. So when we think, intelligence is there, but in a limited form. It knows that "I am this body." (Lord Meher-p-646-1926)

Baba and the mandali would go to Kaka Shahane's home in the Arangaon Family Quarters every Thursday; they would be served milk tea and bhujias. On 10th June 1926, Baba remarked, "Kaka's bhujias are delicious and we feel happy to eat them, but the real pleasure lies in eating those bhujias made from the flour of sanskaras and fried in the oil of devotion on the fire of love."

The main topic of discussion at the Shahane's residence was the purpose of religion. Baba stated: "The real meaning of religion is to know God, to see God, and to become one with God. Everything else about religion is an exercise in rites and rituals."

Once, Baba asked everyone to sing, pointing first to Kaka Shahane who was taken by surprise and became nervous. However, all were happily amused to hear the song he stammered through. (Lord Meher-p-672-1926)

On the morning of 21st September 1926, as the gong was struck at exactly ten o'clock, Baba chose 20 of the men and started on foot toward the village of Walki, a distance of six miles. Each one carried a sack for begging. The men were in good spirits and enjoyed the walk. The weather was perfect, with a few scattered clouds. Striding along, Sarosh played a harmonica, and others sang. The men on each side of Baba would lift him up while walking. On the way, Baba halted three or four times, asking the men whether they should proceed or return to Meherabad. A majority wished to go further, so they continued. On the outskirts of Walki, they stopped under a tree. Sailor and another man were sent to search for a cool place, a garden or an orchard in which to camp, and Kaka Shahane was sent to order tea from a roadside stall. (Lord Meher-p-711-1926)

One time, besides requests, some men asked for money and others for employment, but the majority were simply in favor of something good to eat for a change.

Baba wrote on his slate, "This is the last day of my taking meals, as from tomorrow 20th October 1926; I will go on a fast for 100 days. And as the majority wishes for a treat and wants me to join them, I will consent on one condition: that you prepare the different dishes yourselves and have the food ready by eight o'clock tonight."

Baba's decision was received with "deafening cheering." The disciples with experience of cooking did most of the work, but the other members of the mandali also formed groups to prepare different dishes. Kaka Shahane's family fried bhujias.

After the chanting of shlokas (Sanskrit poetry) and the singing of bhajans, Baba served the food in Sai Darbar and all happily partook of the meal. Baba also ate with them and later, (Lord Meher-p-728/9-1926)

On 26th October 1926, dismantling the buildings at lower Meherabad began. The dharamshala (Upasni Serai) and the leper ward were the first two structures to be taken down and it was done in one day. That night Baba was in a bad mood. Kaka Shahane did not understand certain of Baba's hand signs, which upset Baba. Baba pushed Shahane, and Shahane fell down, striking his head on a stone. He was then directed to go home. (Lord Meher-p-735-1926)

Although the taking of Baba's darshan had been stopped for some time, visitors continued to flock to Meherabad. On 9th November 1926, a crowd formed and Baba permitted them to take darshan. Noticing Pandoba whispering in Kaka Shahane's ear, Baba asked him what he had said. Pandoba replied, "I was saying that I wonder why the touching of your feet by outsiders is allowed, but it is forbidden to us."

Baba replied, "You want to touch my feet? All right, let's flip a coin. Heads you win; tails you lose." Pandoba hesitated, but Dhake, Mohan Shahane, and his father urged him to take the chance. The coin was tossed and it was heads. Shouting Baba's Jai and without waiting to confirm Baba's permission, each of the mandali rushed forward, bowed, and kissed Baba's feet. (Lord Meher-p-738-1926)

On 18th June 1925, Baba again mentioned his upcoming silence: "Within a few days, I will begin keeping silence. All of you remember to hold fast to me- no matter what." On Thursdays, Baba and the mandali had begun visiting Kaka Shahane's house, the Family Quarters, in Arangaon, for afternoon tea. Here the men would enjoy fine tea with milk, for a change, and snacks. (Lord Meher-p-743-1926)

On 25th November 1926, although all were busy packing usual tea was held at Kaka Shahane's house in the Family Quarters near Arangaon. Three of His disciples went to the train station in advance with the luggage. Although precautions had been taken to keep this journey a secret, people in Ahmednagar came to know about it and there was a huge crowd waiting on the station platform for Baba's darshan. Baba avoided the crowd by going directly to Lonavla with the mandali in two large buses, deeply disappointing his devotees. (Lord Meher-p-745-1926)

On 16th December 1926, Kaka Shahane arrived from Ahmednagar to meet Baba.  (Lord Meher-p-755-1926)

On 17th December 1926, Baba went to Ahmednagar with six men to attend the wedding ceremony of Police man’s daughter. The policeman was deeply moved by seeing Baba, and the marriage was joyously performed before him. The poor man cried out, "O Lord! Only your grace has brought about this happy event. Otherwise, who would have married the daughter of a leper?"Baba replied, "In your ugly cage resides a beautiful soul. Only I can see its beauty. Do not worry about your condition. You have nothing to fear." After the ceremony Baba and the mandali went to Kaka Shahane's for tea. (Lord Meher-p-792/93-1926)

On the 14th April 1927, Baba sat inside the dispensary from eight to noon, and then went back inside the Jhopdi until evening. It was quite unusual. Kaka Shahane and his wife Manutai suddenly came with their children for Baba's darshan. Manutai had Baba's order not to drink tea, but as she was going to Kolhapur to visit her relatives who might insist on her taking tea, she requested that Baba allow her to drink tea during her visit. Baba gave his consent, but corrected her, "It is a mistake to ask for a change in my order once given. When I give an order it should be followed at any cost until the time I, on my own, withdraw it. And so all orders, under all circumstances, are to be carried out. There should be no breach of my word. I will never refuse a change in the original order if asked for, but take it that the effect and force of my first word or order is lost once it is changed. And because of that, those concerned will necessarily have to suffer." (Lord Meher-p-802-1927)

On 22nd June 1926, Baba and the mandali were hosted at Dhake's residence in the city, in honor of his recent marriage. On the way car got a flat tire while returning, so Baba walked to Kaka Shahane's, where he waited until the tire was fixed. (Lord Meher-p-827-1926)

On the morning of 1st September 1927, Baba rode on a donkey that was being used to carry muroom (crushed earth) to fill in the tennis area. In the afternoon as usual there was a tea party at Shahane's where one disciple sang before Baba. (Lord Meher-p-840-1927)

On 10th October 1927, one of the teachers left his position. Semester exams at the school were given on Thursday, 20th October. That day, Baba went to Kaka Shahane's as usual in evening. (Lord Meher-p-847-1927)

On 8th November 1962, Kaka Shahane's family moved into Bomanji's former quarters. (Lord Meher-p-852-1927)

On 24th November 1927, Baba went to Kaka Shahane's for tea on Thursday, but he indicated he would stop coming on Thursdays from the following week. Baba came up the hill and stayed until six, playing cricket with the boys. (Lord Meher-p- 854-1927)

On 1st August 1928, Baba went to the night watchman's quarters on, for a tea party. Kaka Shahane's family sang the Marathi arti and the mandali sang the Gujarati one. That night at 9:00 P.M., Baba took two dozen of the mandali boating in the moonlight. They returned after half an hour. Disciples sang before Baba. (Lord Meher-p-953-1927)

Baba loved Kaka Shahane's family very much and had accepted responsibility for the maintenance of the family and the education of the seven children. On 10th August 1928, Mohan Shahane left the ashram to further his higher education. He had been serving as teachers in the school. Baba did not wish Mohan to leave, but the young man was not deeply drawn to the spiritual life and wished to attend graduate school and pursue a Master's degree. He had only been staying in the ashram to fulfill his father's promise to Baba, which was that after Mohan's college graduation he would stay with Baba for six months, and that period had now expired. Baba revealed to Kaka Shahane, "If Mohan stays with me, he will become internationally famous," but Mohan decided to go his own way and left Baba for the rest of his life.

When Mohan was leaving, Baba turned to Chhagan and Padri and remarked sadly, "He will not see me again for 700 years."  (Lord Meher-p-955-1928)

After a brief halt at Akbar Press in Ahmednagar, where they were received by Kaka Shahane, and other families they reached Nasik at 10:30 A.M. Baba met with the women mandali and after lunch went with them again to the Pandu Lena Caves. (Lord Meher-p-1038-1929)

On 18th July 1929, the group drove from Bhopal to Guna. Baba set out for a walk with Kaka Shahane and other three disciples. On the road, a strange looking man, half-naked wearing only a langoti approached Baba directly and silently bowed to him. He said something to Baba, as if he were "reporting to his superior" and handed Baba a flower. Then, just as mysteriously, he walked away. 1045-1929

Reaching Delhi on 23rd July 1929, Baba set out with the mandali and boys on a sightseeing trip through Old and New Delhi, then to the Qutub Minar (all the way to the top), the Red Fort and other places of interest. Baba pointed out a mast named Hafizji Nabeena, who he revealed was the spiritual charge man of Delhi.  Baba sent Chhagan to Pandharpur with Kaka Shahane, instructing Chhagan to remain there and fast for seven days. (Lord Meher-p-1053-1929)

Kaka Shahane and other mandali men and some ashram boys proceed by bus to Nasik. Baba also took with him on the trip three boys who former ashram schoolboys who were now employed at Sarosh Motor Works in Nasik, learning to be mechanics. (Lord Meher-p-1142-1929)

On the 14th March 1930, when Baba was returning from a visit to Tapovan, where he had gone to celebrate the Hindu holiday Holi, The boys and mandali played atya-patya at Tapovan, with Kaka Shahane and Dhake as captains, but Baba had only watched. (Lord Meher-p-1154-1930)

Baba then left Nasik for Meherabad at four in the afternoon in two trucks with fifteen of the mandali. Along the way he stopped at Sangamner, where Gadekar had arranged a darshan program. After eating dinner at Gadekar's house, Baba left for Ahmednagar where he met, Kaka Shahane and two other disciples. (Lord Meher-p-1160-1930)

An argument broke out between Masaji and Kaka Shahane. It was as if their quarrelling drove away the clouds, because it did not rain until eleven that night, which allowed the work to be completed and the concrete to set. (Lord Meher-p-1173-1930)

Baba walked toward the cave with one of his disciple, they first stopped at Vishnu's hut, and Buasaheb, Baidul, Chhagan, and Ali Akbar brought Baba's personal things along. Baba then assigned Vishnu the hut on the extreme left; on the right side below the cave, nearer to Baba, he gave the hut to Buasaheb, Chhagan, and Chanji; Baidul, Raosaheb, and Ali Akbar were assigned the upper hut, above the cave. Kaka Shahane and the boys remained in the huts down below, and all were prohibited from going near the cave. (Lord Meher-p-1178-1930)

On the 29th, Baba came down the hill at 7:00 A.M. and held a meeting with the mandali. Baba visited Kaka Shahane's home in Ahmednagar for five minutes. He returned to Meherabad bringing Kaka, his son, with two teams formed with Kaka Shahane and Masaji as captains. There were 20 on each side. The game was played with much enthusiasm, and the team that Baba was on won. (Lord Meher-p-1179-1930)

 

 

 

 

SHAIKH HIDAYAT KHAN

 

SHAIKH HIDAYAT KHAN, FROM AURANGABAD ONE OF BABA'S FAVORITE QAWAALS WAS SPECIALLY CALLED

On 22 December 1957, in the afternoon, a small function was held in Hasman Hall for Baba's close lovers.  It was more like a sahavas than a darshan program. Shaikh Hidayat Khan, one of Baba's favorite qawaals, had been specially called from Aurangabad. Baba arrived at the hall at about in evening and no sooner had he sat down than a woman rushed forward from the audience and placed her head on his feet. Baba remarked, "This is not the time for bowing down and garlanding

Baba asked the qawaal, "How many times have you sung before me?"

The man said this was his fourth time. Baba whimsically remarked, "This is the fourth time, and there will be a fifth — but after that, not a sixth!"

On a sign from Baba, the qawaal resumed singing this couplet:

Without fana there is no baqa (without annihilation of the mind there is no Realization).

God is unattainable unless the lower self is wiped out.

If the lover asks in the way it should be asked,

What will he not receive?

When the song was finished, Baba asked the group, "Did you follow it?" Very few were familiar with Urdu, and Baba himself answered, "Even if you understood it, so what? Intellect cannot reach the Thing to be understood!"

Praising his voice, Baba urged the qawaal, "Sing a ghazal which, even though not understood, will make all hearts flutter!"

The qawaal sang the following couplet:

Why do you question me about the world of intoxication?

I only know that You alone exist in every heart!

"It would have been better if the mind also slept!" Baba quipped, and all laughed.

The qawaal resumed singing:

You don't know when I find or lose You, or become lost in You.

I am physically asleep, but my mind remains awake in Your remembrance!

He continued: "The whole universe that you see is a dream, and at present you all are dreaming. Suppose you are sleeping and I appear in your dream and tell you: 'What you see and experience now is all a dream!' But you don't believe it. But when you are awake, you know that what I was saying was quite true. Similarly, whatever pain or pleasure you experience is in reality a dream. This qawaali singing, your hurrying here in the hot sun, and my telling you all this, is in truth only a dream. But as long as I don't open your [inner] eyes, you won't believe it."

Baba turned to the qawaal, "Enough of praise, now let's hear something about love."

When the qawaal was about to begin, Baba interrupted him and began explaining about divine intoxication: "As the seeker progresses on the spiritual path, he loses his worldly consciousness, resulting in the mast state. Here he has no consciousness of the world. He eats, drinks, clothes himself, covers his body, but has no thought of it.

"When this state becomes limitless, the person attains the state of a majzoob. Very, very few regain gross consciousness and begin to act in a worldly manner after reaching this state. To recognize a person in such a state is virtually impossible. It means losing all and gaining all."

Humorously, Baba commented: "Long, long ago I lost everything and became God, but thank God I didn't lose my sense of humor!"

The qawaal resumed with another couplet:

In my one form are contained all these innumerable forms.

Whom to take as a sinner, whom to believe in as a saint?

After the ghazal, speaking on haal, an emotional state, Baba commented, "Once my old companion and disciple Munshiji arranged a qawaali program here in Bombay. A Muslim boy named Alimuddin in a paroxysm of devotion began jumping up and down. In the course of the singing that day it happened a few times.

Addressing the qawaal, Baba urged, "Now let us hear some choice truths!"

The qawaal sang: I go on deceiving myself, living in the hope of dying!

Stopping him, Baba commented, "What a beautiful thought! In this state the lover is totally uprooted from the world. All his desires die, except one, and that is to die for the Beloved."

It was getting very hot in the hall so someone switched on the fan. Baba had it turned off and told the qawaal, "All the doors are shut. It is warm. Baba has had the fan switched off. All are sweating."

Addressing one man who was overweight, Baba teased him, "It is good for you. You are perspiring and will slim down a bit." Loud laughter followed Baba's remark.

He continued jokingly, "It is good you people feel the heat. Had it been cool here you would have said, 'Baba, now please don't stop!' Now you will leave sooner!"

The qawaal resumed:

Let my grief for You be kept safe;

What else does my heart yearn for?

This is my prayer, this is my life!

The singer continued, and intermittently Baba observed, "I am everything. I experience myself as the singer, as the instruments and everything else. This is not mere talk! This is my true experience."

Baba asked the qawaal to sing one last song. He sang:

The one hovering like a moth around the Divine Flame [the Master]

Is regarded as a fool; but only by fools!

After the music, Baba shed more light on the discourse. (Lord Meher-p-4231/2/384-1957)

 

 

 

88-SAYYED

(Mandali servant)

 

SAYYED A SERVANT LIED FIRST AND FINALLY ADMITTED TO TELLING OTHERS ABOUT MEHER BABA

While Baba was to reach Isfahan Raosaheb informed Baba that he saw some local townspeople wearing lockets with Baba's image pinned to their coats, and they had expressed their joy at Meher Baba's presence in Isfahan. They were waiting for the opportunity to meet the Master. Baba asked the mandali, "How did they know I was here? Who gave them the lockets?"

Sayyed and one more boy (Mandali servants) who were working for the mandali as servants were questioned. Although they lied at first, they finally admitted to telling others about Meher Baba. Baba warned them, "Never tell a lie, even if you have to die because of something you have done. Wherever you may be, either in the world or with me, never lie." Baba made them promise this, and then he embraced them. (Lord Meher-p-1103-1929)

 

 

113-SHANKARNATH

Baba would sometimes go to Ahmednagar to visit his devotees. On the 27th august 1927, He went to the cantonment area, at the invitation of Shankarnath's friends and relatives. Baba was received with thundering cheers and conducted to a special seat, from where he gave darshan to almost 600 people. Before returning to Meherabad in the evening, he graced a newly-constructed temple nearby. (Lord Meher-p-839-1927)

 

 

118-SHARMA RAM NATH

 

 

SHRI RAMNATH SHARMA, A CO-WORKER WAS BROUGHT AN INTERPRETER BY SULLOO MESHRAM

During 1939 and 1940 Sulloo was in contact with Baba from Nagpur.

During 1945 Sulloo went to Baba at Meherabad. Since Sulloo had been keeping silence for more than a month, he had brought with him an interpreter, Shri Ramnath Sharma, a co-worker.  (Lord Meher page 2769)

 

 

 

125-SHEELA KALCHURI

(Daughter of Bhau & Rama Kalchuri)

Sheela Kalchuri was in contact of Baba as father Bhau was  attached to Baba since 1952. He had opportunity to converse Baba many time and had full faith in Baba. Many of her episodes with Baba is written below in chronological order.

On 21st May 1957, Rama, Sheela and Mehernath Kalchuri had moved into the Family Quarters Rama's brother according to Baba's instructions, had brought them from Nagpur, and had also stayed for a few days. (Lord Meher-p-4185-1957)

Baba went to visit Rama, Mehernath and Sheela Kalchuri, in the Family Quarters. He visited family of other 3 other disciples living on the hill, as well as the mandali in lower Meherabad.  (Lord Meher-p-4218-1957)

During 1958 sahwas Rama Kalchuri came carrying Mehernath, who had a fever. Baba asked why she had brought the boy with such a high fever. She replied, "He was crying for your darshan so I had to bring him." Baba kissed the boy and also his sister Sheela, advising Rama to go home immediately, which she did. (Lord Meher-p-4332-1958)

Bhau's seven-year-old daughter Sheela Kalchuri approached the stage, she was carrying a garland. She wanted to embrace Baba and reasoned that if he allowed her to come up on to the platform to garland him he would embrace her also. Eruch motioned to her to hand him the garland, which he would place around Baba's neck, but Sheela refused. Baba instructed Eruch to pick her up and she got to garland Baba, who embraced her, thus fulfilling her wish. (Lord Meher-p-4626-1960)

Sheela used to call Bhau "Babuji." On this occasion or another, when they came, Pendu began teasing Sheela, saying, "Babuji is mine!"

Reacting upset, Sheela retorted, "No, Babuji is mine!" and she caught hold of Bhau's arm. Baba wanted to know what the commotion was about, and Pendu told him.

Baba remarked to Sheela, "Now I have come to a decision: Babuji is yours and Mehernath is mine."

"No!" Sheela protested. "I want Babuji and Baba both!"

"If you want Babuji, how could you have Baba?"

"Then I want only Baba!"

Smiling, Baba teased, "It has been decided; now don't worry!"

Baba asked Sheela "Do you love Babuji or your mother?"

Sheela replied, "Babuji!"

Baba smiled and remarked, "Now think it over and say it again." Sheela repeated that she loved her father more. Baba asked Mehernath, "And you? What do you say? Whom do you love more?"

He replied, "I love Baba!"

Bhau's family was extremely fortunate to be in Baba's contact, and it is only his compassion that kept them near him. For his own reasons, in the late 1950s and 1960s Sheela and Mehernath Kalchuri. (Lord Meher-p- 4711-1961)

Rama, Sheela and Mehernath Kalchuri were called to Meherazad periodically during this time. On one occasion, Baba asked Rama, "You are living alone with two small children. What would you do if a thief enters your house at night?" Rama answered that she would cover herself and pretend to be asleep.

As promised, on Mehernath's eighth birthday on 22nd October 1961, Baba called him, Rama and Sheela to Meherazad.  He embraced first Mehernath and then Rama and Sheela. He asked him, "What are you holding in your hands?" (Lord Meher-p-4776-1961)

Mehernath Kalchuri's tenth birthday (on the 22nd) was celebrated on 21st October 1963. Rama, Sheela and Mehernath were called to Meherazad on the 21st to be with Baba and have lunch with him. (Lord Meher-p- 5047-1963)

on the 5th with his feet. Don too was called to see Baba at Guruprasad at this time. Adi returned to Guruprasad on 9 May and gave Baba a report of the proceedings.

In May 1966, Sheela Kalchuri's ear had become septic and full of pus, and she was in severe pain. A mastoid operation was necessary and the surgery was to be performed in Poona, so Baba sent for her, Rama and Mehernath and allowed them to stay in Guruprasad. Usually, whenever they came for Baba's darshan. (Lord Meher-p-5230-1966)

12th May 1966 was Sheela's fourteenth birthday and she had hoped Baba would call them to Poona that day, but he did not. Four days later, on 16th May, they went to Poona by taxi. When they arrived, Baba asked her. "Do you know why I have called you all to Guruprasad? Today is Baby's [Sheela's nickname] birthday; she must come and embrace me first."

"No, Baba!" she protested. "My birthday was on the 12th! You forgot to send me a birthday card. You love Mehernath more than me! You always celebrate his birthday in Meherazad. For my birthday you used to send me a card, but this year you forgot even that! Now, you are only trying to make me happy by saying that today is my birthday. I don't want to embrace you!"

Baba tried to calm her. "I know when you were born. Listen, Baby, God is telling you today is your birthday. I know more than you do. Today is your real birthday."

Then Sheela realized that she was indeed talking with God, and she simmered down. She embraced Baba, who informed her that he had called for cupcakes that day in her honor. Rama had brought a cooked vegetable for the women mandali. Baba saw it and remarked, "Today, you all will have cupcakes for Baby's birthday, and I will eat this vegetable."

On the day of Sheela's operation, 18 th May 1966, before she left for the hospital, Baba called her, Rama and Mehernath to his room at 6:30 A.M. Baba embraced Sheela and asked, "Are you scared? Suppose you die in this operation? Will you be happy to come to me?"

Although her mother started to cry when she heard this, Sheela said, "Yes, I will be happy to stay with you forever. Now, I see you only once in a while, but if I come to you, it will be eternally!"

Rama said, "Your nazar should be with her, Baba."

"Only my nazar? You should be happy your daughter will be with me! Don't cry; I will be with her always. Even in the hospital, I will be with her. Do you think that this doctor can do such a complicated ear operation? It will be I who does it through him."

Later, when the sun had risen Baba's hair, Baba again called the Kalchuris to his bedroom. Mehera gave Baba two lockets, one for each child. Baba took Sheela's and then pinned it on her blouse, stating, and “Don't remove this during your operation. I will be there with you, but if you remove it, I will not come. And don't tell anyone who this is. If the doctor asks you, don't tell him.  This locket will protect and save you from harm. Always keep it with you, and you will have good health."

At the hospital, the nurses told Sheela to remove her blouse but she insisted she wear the locket during the operation, and after much argument, the staff relented. Meherjee and Nana Kher were with Sheela at the hospital, and several times during the extensive operation, Baba instructed Bhau to phone for an update about Sheela's condition. The operation was successful, and after a week Sheela returned to Guruprasad to convalesce. (Lord Meher-p-5231/2-1966)

On 4th June 1966, Rama and Mehernath were sent back to Ahmednagar, as Mehernath's school holidays were over. Sheela was kept in Guruprasad, as she had to be taken to the doctor every day to change the dressing. When her mother had been there, Sheela and Rama would eat with the women mandali, but now, Baba instructed her to eat with the men. Because of her operation, she was not able to chew anything hard, and one day the mandali's lunch consisted of such foods.

Baba sent for Goher to call Sheela to the women's side, where he gave her his own rice and dal to eat. Sheela hesitated, thinking Baba would go hungry, but he commented, "This food is not very tasty; I cannot eat it. You have it." She did and found it delicious.5234-1966

Sheela had long fingernails, and Baba asked her why she kept them. Although she had done it to be fashionable, she replied, "I need them to draw with, Baba."

Baba remarked to her, "You look like a tigress! While embracing me, your nails might pierce my cheeks, so it is better you remove them."

"But how will I be able to draw?"

"Your drawings will come out fine, don't worry!"

Sheela had no choice but to obey, and Baba then warned her, "This is my order. Never let your nails grow long again." (Lord Meher-p-5223-1966)

In April 1966, Sheela Kalchuri's ear had become septic and full of pus, and she was in severe pain. A mastoid operation was necessary and the surgery was to be performed in Poona, so Baba sent for her. (Lord Meher-p-5230-1966)

One year at Guruprasad, Baba remarked to Mehernath and Sheela that Deshmukh was expected that day, instructing, "When he comes, push him out! Don't allow him to come inside. This is my order."

Deshmukh arrived, and both children grabbed his hand and attempted to block his entry. Deshmukh waved them away, declaring, "Have I come to take your Baba away on my shoulders? Let me, too, sit here for a while." Baba signalled them to drive him away, and Sheela tried to catch his hand, but he yanked it away. Baba was gesturing them not to let Deshmukh enter, so while Sheela pulled one of his hands, Mehernath bit him on the other hand! Deshmukh hollered, and Baba was highly amused, but to the children he gestured, looking upset, "Now that Deshmukh has entered, let him go. I did not want him to come inside; but now what can we do?" (Lord Meher-p-5234-1963)

On 28th June 1966, Jim Mistry had a heart attack at Guruprasad and was taken back to Bombay by for treatment. While the others prepared to leave Poona, Sheela Kalchuri was ordered to stay behind at Bindra House with the Jessawalas, as her medical treatment was not yet finished. The night before Baba departed, he called her to his room at about 8:00 P.M. and remarked, "I want to say goodbye to you now, because if I embrace you tomorrow before the others, I will have to embrace everybody." Baba hugged the girl and sent her back to Bhau's room, but Sheela was extremely unhappy about being left behind. She cried that night and insisted to her father that she should return with them to Ahmednagar.

The following morning, Baba called her again and said, "I heard you crying last night. Don't be depressed."

But Baba, I don't know these people [the Jessawalas]!" she said.

"You know Meherwan, don't you? Don't worry. I have given them orders to keep you as I want. I am not sending you to stay with them because of your medical treatment. I want you to learn how to eat meat and fish. This is my order to you. Start eating non-vegetarian food and it will improve your health. After ten days, as soon as you come to Ahmednagar, I will call you to Meherazad to see me." (Lord Meher-p-5236/7-1966)

On 9July 1966, Sheela Kalchuri was brought back to Ahmednagar, and as promised, was called to Meherazad alone on the 11th. Baba sent instructions that Rama should cook nine eggplants and send them with Sheela.

At Guruprasad, after her operation, Baba had had a mixture of bananas, milk and figs made every day which he used to give Sheela with his own hands. He remarked it was nutritious, urging her, "Eat this, it is my prasad. It will help you to regain your strength quickly."

Sheela had tasted it, but thought it so repugnant, she felt as if she would vomit. She asked Baba if she could go out and eat it, and he permitted her. Once alone, she poured the mixture down the bathroom sink.

Every day at 4:00 P.M. in the hall, Baba would give her a bowl of the mixture and each day she would go outside, dutifully take one spoonful — as it was Baba's prasad — and dump the rest.

After a week, she asked Baba if he would give her each item separately, not mixed together, and Baba replied, "Of course you can have the bananas, figs and milk separately. You want it that way? I am happy to give you what you like. I am so happy you told me the truth."

On the 11th, Sheela arrived at Meherazad, happy and proud that her mother and brother were not accompanying her. Baba was loving as usual, and at lunchtime the table was laden with several delicious dishes. Sheela thought: "How lucky I am to be having lunch with Baba today, and so many good things to eat!"

Baba asked if she had brought the eggplants, and Sheela handed him the dish, thinking he would give her some.

Baba motioned to her to bring her plate, and she happily thought how much luckier she was as Baba was going to serve her! In front of Baba was a huge bowl of the milk-banana-fig mixture, which Baba was eating. Sheela was shocked when Baba doled out a large portion of this to her. Baba remarked to Mehera, "This is so delicious. I love this mixture, and look, Baby loves it too! Right, Baby?"

Sheela could only smile and shake her head in agreement, but although she said, "Yes, Baba," inside she was saying, "No, Baba! I do not like this at all; but I know why you are giving me this punishment!"

With every bite, Baba would comment, "See, Mehera, I like this, and Baby also likes it."

She finished the amount quickly, and Baba called her to him again. This time he dished out an even greater amount of the same concoction. Sheela was aghast! She returned to her seat and slowly began eating it, asking Meheru for a glass of water to wash the awful mixture down her throat. Previously, she had been happy that her mother was not with her; now she regretted her absence, as she could have whispered to Rama to tell Baba how much she disliked it.

Sheela somehow finished swallowing it, and Baba remarked, "Even if I give you poison, it does not matter since it is my prasad. Take it as nectar and swallow it. It is only due to great good fortune that one gets prasad from my hands." Thus Sheela, a young teenager, learned a valuable lesson and lamented for what she had unknowingly done at Guruprasad. (Lord Meher-p-5238/39-1966)

On 23rd July 1966, Baba dictated points for a letter to Richard Alpert, which Francis drafted and Adi mailed with his signature. Baba again wished Alpert to understand the futility

During July 1966, Baba would often call Rama, Sheela and Mehernath Kalchuri to Meherazad on Sundays for lunch. Adi brought them on 31st July. Sheela and Rama would eat with Baba and the women, and Mehernath with the men. Mehera was embarrassed about using both hands to eat chapatis (since most people in India do not use their left hand while eating). She asked Rama, "Do you mind if I use both hands to break my chapatti?"

Rama was wondering how to reply when Sheela spoke up, "If the flour is kneaded with two hands, what harm is there in eating the chapatti with both hands? With one hand you cannot clap — it takes two hands — so it is all right." (Lord Meher-p-5243-1968)

On 9th July 1966, Sheela Kalchuri was brought back to Ahmednagar. As promised she was called to Meherazad alone on the 11th. Baba sent instructions that Rama should cook nine eggplants and send them with Sheela.

At Guruprasad, after her operation, Baba had had a mixture of bananas, milk and figs made every day which he used to give Sheela with his own hands. He remarked it was nutritious, urging her, "Eat this, it is my prasad. It will help you to regain your strength quickly."

It is only due to great good fortune that one gets prasad from my hands." Thus Sheela, a young teenager, learned a valuable lesson and lamented for what she had unknowingly done at Guruprasad. 5238/9-1966

In December 1968, Sheela and Mehernath would take turns going to Meherazad for lunch on Sundays, riding with Waman Padale on his scooter. Baba called Mehernath twice in November and Sheela once. When it was Sheela's last turn in December 1968, after she had eaten with Baba and the women, Baba kissed her and motioned to her to leave. She was walking away when Baba came outside on the verandah and called her back. Embracing her, Baba remarked, "This is the last food you will have at my hands. Such an opportunity you will not have again. This is my prasad to you for your whole life. Remember it always."

Baba asked Sheela, "Does your mother feel bad when I don't call her?"

"Very bad, Baba. She claims you don't want to see her."

"Not that. You and Mehernath are young and can ride with Waman on the back of his scooter. She cannot. Tell her I am always with her. I often think of her and love her. She is really great. You don't understand now, but you will realize it when you grow up. You have a very good mother. Tell her I will send for her soon." (Lord Meher-p-5371-1968)

 

 

152-SHIVNARAYAN

 

SHIVNARAYAN A BOY DUNK HIS HEAD IN THE WATER OVERFLOWING FROM THE HOLY BATH OF BABA.

 

5th November 1927 was the important Hindu day of fasting, Kartika Ekadashi. Three days before, a boy who had been staying with Dhuniwala Baba of Saikhed for some years arrived at Meherabad. His name was Shivnarayan, and although he was only 15, he was very devout. While Baba was being bathed, Shivnarayan would dunk his head in the water overflowing from the bath. When asked why he was doing this, he replied, "I am washing away my sins in the holy water of Shri Meher Baba's bath!" Baba stopped the boy, motioning him to sit beside him so that when the water was poured over him it would fall on Shivnarayan as well.

That night, Shivnarayan insisted on sleeping near Baba. Baba allowed him to sleep beside him for an hour, after which he lay down near Baba's sandals on the floor. The next morning, Baba ordered the boy to observe silence for a period of time. (Lord Meher-p-850-1927)

 

182-SIGANPORIA HOSHI

 

SORABJI RATTANJI SIGANPORIA BECOMES A STAUNCH BABA LOVER AT LAST.

Sorabji Rattanji Siganporia had come with his two sons Noshir and Hoshi. Noshir, 16, had been somewhat troubled since childhood and Sorabji wished for some divine intervention. He was in the habit of visiting different saints, and had met Babajan, Upasni Maharaj and Narayan Maharaj. While reading a book about Upasni Maharaj, he had come to know of Meher Baba. However, because of Colonel Irani's agitation against Meher Baba in the newspapers, and having heard others of the Bombay Parsi community attack Baba, Sorabji had no true feelings of reverence for Baba. But because of his son Noshir, he came to Meherabad seeking Baba's help to relieve his anxiety.

Baba first kept Noshir with him, sending Sorabji and Hoshi out. Calling them back after a few minutes, he remarked to Sorabji, "Give me Noshir; let him stay here with me." (Lord Meher-p-2357-1953)

 

 

185-SIGANPORIA NOSHIR

(Son of Siganporia Sorabji)

 

NOSHIR SIGANPORIA STEPPED FORWARD TO GARLAND BABA WAS DIRECTED TO BOW DOWN AT UPASANI MAHARAJ'S TOMB ALSO

 

Sorabji Rattanji Siganporia, had come with his two sons Noshir and Hoshi. Noshir, 16, had been somewhat troubled since childhood and Sorabji wished for some divine intervention. He was in the habit of visiting different saints, and had met Babajan, Upasni Maharaj and Narayan Maharaj. While reading a book about Upasni Maharaj, he had come to know of Meher Baba. However, because of Colonel Irani's agitation against Meher Baba in the newspapers, and having heard others of the Bombay Parsi community attack Baba, Sorabji had no true feelings of reverence for Baba. But because of his son Noshir, he came to Meherabad seeking Baba's help to relieve his anxiety.

Baba first kept Noshir with him, sending Sorabji and Hoshi out. Calling them back after a few minutes, he remarked to Sorabji, "Give me Noshir; let him stay here with me."

Sorabji was shocked at the idea and immediately left with his sons. He felt confirmed that whatever the Colonel had said was true. His mind revolted and he began having disparaging thoughts about Baba.

But within two to three months, his mental turmoil lessened and he repented for not surrendering Noshir to Baba. Noshir became even more abnormal. The boy would visit tombs and graveyards and spend the night there. Sorabji arranged his marriage, but the boy's mentality did not change.

Sorabji was later to come to Baba's feet again, and greatly repent for his mistake. The man who was so hostile to Baba in the beginning became a staunch worker in Meher Baba's cause and was the one who, years later, opened the first Meher Baba center in Bombay.  (Lord Meher-p-2357/8-1953)

Sorabji Siganporia from Bombay had come to the wedding with his family. He had met Baba before, but when Baba had asked for his son Noshir, who was mentally troubled, to be kept with him, Sorabji had become disconsolate and had left without having any faith in Baba.

Gradually, Noshir's condition also became somewhat more normal. Sorabji now repented for not leaving his son with Baba when the time was most opportune. (lord Meher-p-2484/5-1945)

Noshir with his father Sorabji Siganporia had interviews with Baba at Meherazad on 21st June 1958. Lords Meher-p-4437-1958)

On the morning of 28th August 1959, was Lord Krishna's birthday. Baba summoned women mandali and men into the hall in the morning. Prayer and arti were sung. After the women left, Baba issued some instructions for Noshir Siganporia, who was permitted to stay at Meherabad for six months with his family. (Lord  Meher-p-4581-1959)

On 17th September 1959, Noshir Siganporia arrived.  (Lord Meher-p-4592-1959)

On 15th December 1965, Noshir Siganporia was called to Meherazad and then again 20th. (Lord Meher-p-4618-1965)

Every morning, Noshir Siganporia carried Don and Alain to Meherabad and returned to Meherabad in the evening. (Lord Meher-p-4619-1959)

Baba wished to discuss a circular to issue. Noshir Siganporia came the same day from Meherabad for certain instructions. (Lord Meher-p-4597-1959)

Don and Alain were driven to Meherazad every morning by Noshir Siganporia, and returned to Meherabad in the evening (Lord Meher-p-4619-1959)

At one point, Baba advised Noshir to go to Bombay and live with his parents and brother, but this; too, he refused to do. Finally, on 5th September 1965, Baba instructed him to remove all his belongings from the room he was staying in at Meherazad, and to move into the nearby cottage of Ratanshah Gyara.  He was instructed to walk up Khandoba's Hill (opposite Seclusion Hill) every day, and repeat God's name for three hours every morning. Baba allowed him to come to Meherazad at noon for his lunch and at 6:30 sharp for dinner — but to leave Meherazad immediately after both meals. (Lord Meher-p-5171-1965)

 

SIDDIQ QAWAAL

 

SIDDIQ QAWAAL A SINGER FROM JAIPUR PUT HIS HEART AND SOUL INTO HIS MUSIC, MAKING BABA VERY HAPPY

On 13th May 1962, Guruprasad was filled to overflowing during a program of qawaali singing held in the evening. Many from Bombay and Poona were present, including the cricket players Polly Umrigar, Nari Contractor and his wife Dolly, and the Khilnanis. Siddiq Qawaal from Jaipur was the singer put his heart and soul into his music, making Baba very happy. (Lord Meher-p-4798-1962)

 

154-SHIVAJI MANDHARE

 

SHIVAJI MANDHARE PLAYED A ROLE OF DUKHIRAM (THE SUFFERING ONE) IN THE PLAY JAI MEHER

On 29th November 1959, as instructed by Baba, the Ahmednagar close lovers including Mandhare brought two busloads of lepers, the blind and maimed (100 destitute persons in all) to Meherazad at 9:00 A.M. After the customary washing of feet and bowing down, Baba gave each five rupees as prasad. (Lord Meher-p-4615-1959)

On 8th March 1962, Bhau's play Jai Meher was enacted by members of the Ahmednagar Center on the spacious stage of the Sarosh Cinema movie theatre. The men and women living in Meherabad were also invited. At 9:30 A.M., as Baba's car drove into Ahmednagar, he and the women heard loud chanting and saw several hundred Muslims bowing toward the west (toward Mecca) at the Mohammedan prayer ground next to Khushru Quarters. It was Ramzan Id (a Muslim holy day of fast). Age noted ironically, "Little did the people realize that the One to whom they were praying was at that moment driving past them!"

In the play Jai Meher, Shivaji Mandhare played a role of Dukhiram (the Suffering One) (lord Meher-p-4791-1962)

In year 1963, for inauguration of Kovvur center Baba inquired who from among his Ahmednagar lovers was proceeding to Kovvur. About six persons said they were going. Baba asked Mandhare and 10 other disciples to go to Kovvur. He stated, "I am sending Adi and Maharani Shantadevi for the opening as my representatives. So you, too, should go and participate in this love-feast." (Lord Meher-p-4920-1963)

 

SHOLAPURE SHANKAR RAO

 

SHANKAR RAO SHOLAPURE A SINGER FROM POONA SANG A GHAZAL IN URDU; BABA EXPLAINED

During these evening programs at Guruprasad, Madhusudan sang bhajans, and often the scheduled one-hour sessions stretched to two hours or more.

One singer from Poona named Shankar Rao Sholapure would sometimes sing ghazals. One afternoon he sang a ghazal in Urdu that Baba liked very much. Summarizing its meaning, Baba explained: "The lover says: 'O Beloved, my moods and whims depend on your moods and whims. If you are pleased, I am pleased. If you are happy, I am happy.' "

Looking at his lovers gathered before him, Baba stated, "You take me to be your Beloved God. Now, if I ask you to vacate the hall immediately and return to your respective places, will you feel happy? Be honest in replying what you feel, not what you should feel."

Several were honest enough to answer, "No, Baba. To be frank, we would not feel happy to leave this hall."

Baba continued, "It is said: 'It is very difficult to love.' Why? Love is a gift rarely received, and only the recipient of such love can obey the Beloved quite willingly and in a natural way."

To those who had said they were not prepared to leave, Baba joked, "All right, remain seated. Your Beloved God will sit here, too, to please you!"

Continuing his explanation of the ghazal, Baba stated, "In these lines, the lover says: 'O Beloved, do not ask me anything about how I pass my life. It is steeped in restlessness. I burn in your love and every moment sets ablaze the fire of separation.' "

In the end, he remarked, "Only the one in whose heart the flame of love has been kindled as a gift of grace can experience what the state of 'burning within' is!"

The Poona bhajan group had organized a drama depicting the seven Avatars and their predominant message to mankind. The play was performed before Baba on Saturday, 27 May 1961. All the actors were the children of Center members, aged five to sixteen. In the final scene, Sohrab walked in as Baba, leaning on "Eruch's" (Rustom's) arm.(Lord Meher-p-4751-1961)

 

 

171- SAVAK DAMANIA

(Husband of Meheru Close disciple)

 

SAVAK DAMANIA WAS ADMONISHED WHEN HE ASKED BABA TO SEE OFF HIS FRIEND HOMI PAVRI WHO HAD COME TO SEE BABA

Since his childhood, Savak Damania of Akbar Press had been in Baba's contact. Savak was engaged Eruch's sister Meheru. The engagement ceremony was held at Akbar Press in Ahmednagar on June 1937. A few of the Westerners were present at the small ceremony. Baba garlanded the couple and applied kumkum to their foreheads, and they exchanged rings before him. (Lord Meherp-p-1839-1937)

Savak had a friend named Homi Pavri, who wanted to meet Meher Baba. Savak wrote to Baba at Lonavla, and Baba permitted them to come.2307-1942

They arrived in Lonavla, but Baba sent Vishnu to stop Homi near the gate and allow only Savak to come inside. Homi had brought garlands and sweets for Baba, and Baba told him through Vishnu that he should see him from a distance and then leave. Homi accepted this, saw Baba from that distance, handed Vishnu the garlands and sweets, and started to leave. Savak turned to Baba and asked, "May I see him off at the train station?"

"Is he your child?" Baba snapped. "Can he not go alone? You have come to see me and are to stay here for four days — at a time when I am not seeing anyone! — but if you want to go, go!"

"I want to stay," said Savak, "but what will my friend think of me?"

"That means you think first of your friend and not of me! If you go to the station when I want you to be here — what will think of you?"

"Forgive me, Baba; you are right."

Baba then told him, "Just remember one thing: Think only of my will and don't think of pleasing others. If you keep my will and, if in doing so, the whole world turns against you, you should learn to ignore it.

"The whole world is within me. Everything will be all right if you only think of my wish. Whatever your friend had to earn, he has earned it by seeing me briefly. There is nothing for him to think now." (Lord Meher-p-2308-1942)

On 28th May 1945, the weddings of Eruch to his cousin Khorshed Damania and of Eruch's sister, Meheru, 24, to Khorshed's brother, Savak Damania, 33, took place at Akbar Press. It was not so much a marriage as a gathering of celebration for Baba's lovers from Bombay, Poona and Ahmednagar. Baba and the Meherabad mandali went to Akbar Press to attend the weddings, and the ceremony turned into a darshan! Both marriages were done according to Baba's wish, (Lord Meher-p-2484-1945)

Baba instructed Naja and Katie to stay at Nariman and Arnavaz's apartment in Bombay. Baidul's wife Soltoon and their daughter, Dowla, were instructed to stay at Bindra House in Poona, along with Walu. Baidul's other daughter Sarwar was living in Bombay. Gulmai was to remain at Khushru Quarters with her daughters Dolly and Piroja; Meheru Damania and her husband were to continue living there, as well. (Lord Meher-p-2574-1949)

Baba and the women stopped for lunch at Bindra House in Poona with the Jessawala family. Jal Kerawalla was there also. They returned to Meherazad the same day, where Baba called Sarosh, Savak Damania. (Lord Meher-p-2709-1949)

On 1st August 1949, was a red-letter day in Meherazad. All the Meherabad mandali, as well as other Meherabad residents, including Naggu, Sushila, Sarwar, Najoo and Hilla Kotwal (who were on holiday from school), little Gorakhnath, and many from Ahmednagar were to be present at Meherazad before seven o'clock that morning. Those who were invited included Sarosh, his wife Viloo, Meherjee Mama and Homi Mama Satha, Savak Damania, Cawas and Rusi Damania, and their mother Shirin, Ramjoo, Dhake, Soonamasi, Rusi Pop, Dattu, Rustom Kaka and Silla Kaku, Adi Sr., Gulmai and daughter Piroja, Bhagirath, Pandoba, Goma Ganesh, Adi Jr. and his wife Franey. No one was to eat breakfast or take tea before arriving. All the men and women had been observing silence for one month, and they were to break it in Baba's presence when he stepped out of seclusion. Sarosh was the only one who had been exempted from being on silence because of his political involvements and work. (Lord Meher-p-2732-1949)

Arrangement alas — they were five men appointed by Baba to see primarily to the practical arrangements which had been made for those financially dependent upon Baba. However, later Baba kept issuing instructions for other work, which they carried out faithfully also. The committee consisted of Sarosh, Nariman, Meherjee, Ramjoo and Jal Kerawalla, with Savak Damania serving as an assistant. (Lord Meher-p-l2765-1949)

At Meherazad, Baba woke the women at two o'clock, and after their last-minute packing and tea, they started at 4:15 A.M. for the station, with few others had sought Baba's permission to bid him farewell, but Baba had permitted only Sarosh, Adi Jr., Savak Damania and Padri to be present. (Lord Meher-p-2783-1949)

On Friday, 19 March 1954, accompanied Baba left Mahabaleshwar and reached Ahmednagar at two that afternoon. After lunch at Viloo Villa, he went to Adi's office in Khushru Quarters, where he met Gulmai, and other close lovers such as Savak Damania, (Lord Meher-p-3527-1954)

To speed his recovery, it was recommended that Baba have mutton soup, so Meheru Damania was asked to prepare and send it from Khushru Quarters. (Lord Meher-p-3034-1952)

On 21 March 1955, Baba, with four mandali men left Satara for Khuldabad in Adi Sr.'s car, driven by Eruch. They stopped briefly at Sarosh Motor works in Ahmednagar where Baba met Adi Sr. and instructed him to continue the work of spreading his name far and wide. He asked for a bottle of orange soda, which Savak Damania managed to bring. (Lord Meher-p-3680-1955)

 

172-SOHRABJI DAMANIA

 

SOHRAB DAMANIA PROPERTY MANAGER OF GRAFTON FELT PITY CARRYING BIG POT OF FALUDA BY BBHAU OVER HIS HEAD

Sohrab Damania was the property manager of Grafton. There happened to be an interesting episode between Sohrabji and Bhau as Baba wished to expose his ego. This is described in Bhau’s words as under:.

21st March 1955, was the Irani New Year of Jamshed-e-Navroz. On this festival, it is customary to have a sweet, cool drink made with milk called falooda. When Baba came to Rosewood, he told Bhau to go back to Grafton to bring the drink for the mandali. Bhau thought some servant would be there to carry the large pot of liquid, but as soon as he arrived, two women servants lifted the pot onto his head. It was so heavy they had trouble lifting it.

Grafton was about 600 feet from Rosewood, and in between was the house of the property manager, Sohrabji Damania. Damania knew Bhau and was friendly with him. Bhau was embarrassed by doing such menial labor, and fervently hoped he would not come across Sohrabji just then. Although his neck was bent, and his shoulders ached under the weight, he was glad that today Baba was kind, in that Sohrabji was not seen on the road. But, just as he was thinking this, Sohrabji appeared from a side lane and offered his namaskar (greeting) to Bhau. Bhau felt ashamed, but Sohrabji did not linger and went on his way. Bhau began thinking that Baba had not only made him labor much, but had also made him face this awkward situation!

He arrived at Rosewood, where Pendu and Eruch lifted the burden from his head. "Was the pot heavy?" Baba asked.

Before Bhau could reply, Eruch interposed, "It is very heavy!"

Pendu observed, "One would break his back were one to carry such a load for long."

Baba asked Bhau, "Did anyone see you on the way?"

"Only Sohrabji," Bhau lamented.

Seeing the expression on Bhau's face, the men burst out laughing, and Baba asked, "Did you feel ashamed?"

"Very much so!"

"How will you obey me if you feel ashamed by being seen by others? You will act according to the ways of the world and not according to me. He who has thought for me does not care for the world! I will see to your sense of shame in Khuldabad."

Baba then ladled out a portion of the falooda into a small pot and told Bhau to take it to Sohrabji. He did so and Sohrabji asked him, "Don't you have any servants to carry such a heavy load?"

We are all servants of Baba," Bhau said. "It is our good fortune that Baba assigns us such work."

When he returned, Baba asked what Sohrabji had said, and Bhau reported it. Baba advised him, "Learn to live like a stone! People trample on it, and in the form of an idol also worship it, but is the stone affected thereby? Not in the least. Whether it is kicked, spit upon or worshiped, it remains unaffected. All of you should consciously be like the stone. You will attain the goal of life if you become like a stone." (Lord Meher-p-3679/80-1955)

 

 

142-SILLA PHADKE

 

SILLA PHADKE A BRAHMIN GIRL MARRIED OUT OF HER RELIGION HAD SEEN BABA WHEN SHE WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD

After coming under the influence of Meher Baba, this once zealous Zoroastrian became so changed that seven years later he fell in love with a Brahmin girl named Silla Phadke and married out of his religion. Silla's parents were friends of the Shahanes, and she first saw Baba and heard him speak at the Shahanes' residence in Arangaon in 1925 when she was seven years old. Her family became devoted to Baba. Her father was a teacher and taught for a time at Meher Ashram. (Lord Meher-p-1586-1933)

 

SRIMANT G. G. BUTY

 

SRIMANT G. C. BUTY SON OF BUTY SAHEB OF NAGPUR LOST HIS SHOES AND SHATRUGHAN KUMAR GAVE HIS SHOES TO HIM

In year 1955, followed by the sahavas group, Baba began ascending the hill, flinging pebbles to either side as he went. Shrimant G. G. Buty of Nagpur (Buty Saheb's son) was walking barefooted, because he had lost his shoes. Baba noticed this and asked about it. Seeing Baba's concern for the boy, Kumar took off his shoes and gave them to Buty, which pleased Baba. (Lord Meher-p-3891-1955)

 

WANDREKAR S. N.

 

WANDREKAR S. N. WAS A FORMER DEPUTY MINISTER OF THE BOMBAY GOVERNMENT, AND HE AND HIS FAMILY RECEIVED BABA WARMLY

In year 1957, after visiting Harijan and school boys at Kamala Nehru hostel, Baba proceeded to S. N. Wandrekar's garden at Kothrud. Wandrekar was a former deputy minister of the Bombay government, and he and his family received Baba warmly. Baba stepped inside the garden, where fruit, cookies and sweets had been placed on a table. Baba took his seat and all sat before him. Calling the entire Wandrekar family, Baba made them sit beside him, and again Subhadra sang bhajans and performed his arti. Finally Baba distributed prasad to all. (Lord Meher-p-4812-1957)

 

SOONUMYAN MUHAMMAD SAYYED

 

 

MUHAMMAD SAYYED SOONUMYAN (NICKNAMED SOONU) A YOUNG MUSLIM QAWAALI SINGER USED TO COME AND SING GHAZALS

After the 1956 accident, Baba began inviting the Ahmednagar Center lovers to Meherazad almost every week to sing devotional songs before him. A young Muslim qawaali singer named Muhammad Sayyed Soonumyan (nicknamed Soonu) would also come to sing ghazals. Thus, due to his close contact, Baba's Ahmednagar lovers were inspired to conduct his center wholeheartedly.  (Lord Meher-p-4487-1959)

 

 

257-SUGANDH

(Son of Harjiwan Lal)

In year 1959, One day, Sugandh Harjiwan Lal's son came and after greeting, Baba ordered him to return to Delhi, yet Sugandh did not leave.

Seeing him again on 13th April 1959, Baba asked him, "Why didn't you return home?"

Sugandh said, "Dr. Deshmukh asked me to stay on."

With grave displeasure, Baba scolded, "From now on, do whatever Deshmukh tells you and don't do as I say!"

Baba reprimanded Deshmukh for interfering with his orders, but then embraced him and forgave him. (Lord Meher-p-4517/8-1959)

 

 

SULLOO MESHRAM

Sulloo Meshram, one of Baba’s dear lovers and the author of the song collection Meher Prakash Bhajanwali.

He was one of the pioneers of Baba activities at Jabalpur. He heard of Meher Baba for the first time through Newspapers in 1937 and later he met Eruch’s father at Nagpur. At his request, Eruch wrote to Baba that Sulloo would like to meet Him. Meher Baba called Sulloo to Panchgani in the month of April 1938. Jal Bhai (Meher Baba’s brother) came to receive Sulloo at Panchgani.

In 1938, a year after Baba’s darshan program in Nagpur, while Sulloo was still in his early teens, he took to visiting the Jessawalas, and there he learned more about Baba. Procuring Baba’s address, he wrote Him a letter in which he expressed his desire to see Him in person. Baba, in response to Sulloo’s longing, lovingly granted this request. And so, in the first week of April 1938, overjoyed at receiving Baba’s invitation, this young boy of fourteen left Nagpur by train on a 700-mile journey to Panchgani (not far from Poona) where Baba was then residing. Some of the money for the trip had been provided by his school principal, who was interested in spirituality. At Kalyan, which is a junction, Sulloo had to change trains. But upon leaving the compartment he found to his dismay that his suitcase, containing clothes, some Baba photos, and all his money, had been stolen. He was literally penniless. Only two baskets of oranges, which the Jessawalas had entrusted to him to give to Baba, remained. What a predicament for a young boy venturing alone on such a long trip! Although he had lost even his ticket, somehow he managed to get onto another train, wondering all the while why such misfortunes should befall him when the journey he was engaged in was to meet the All-Compassionate One. Yet it is not uncommon for people to lose something tangible when they are travelling to meet the Avatar. Perhaps these tangible losses are an indication that one should be willing to part also with the intangible thoughts and feelings that stand in the way of seeing the God-Man as He ought to be seen.

When he arrived in Poona, Sulloo had no idea how he would travel on to Panchgani with no ticket and no money. But as luck would have it, he met a bus driver bound for Panchgani and told him of the theft of his suitcase. The driver not only believed his story, but as it turned out, had formerly been one of the servants who years earlier had carried water to Baba’s bungalow, and so had a special feeling for Him. This driver happily agreed to give Sulloo a free ride to Panchgani. Once again, Baba’s unseen guiding hand had silently taken care of the details of a lover’s journey to Him.

When he got off the bus in Panchgani, to the boy’s complete surprise, a stranger approached him and asked if he was Sulloo Meshram. This stranger turned out to be Baba’s brother Jal, who by Baba’s order had been waiting to receive him. As it happened, Papa Jessawala had sent a telegram from Nagpur to Panchgani, informing Baba about Meshram’s departure. Jal took Sulloo to the mandali’s residence. A short while later, Baba arrived and took His seat, His long hair flowing and a radiance glowing on His face.

Sulloo’s heart leapt within him, and he rushed to Baba, prostrating himself at His feet. Baba lovingly inquired about his journey, and He beamed a smile as He heard about the theft of the suitcase. For He had committed a far greater theft — He had stolen this young boy’s heart! In his enthusiasm Sulloo exclaimed that he wished to offer his life to Baba and to obey Him implicitly. Baba did not respond at that moment but asked him to go with Vishnu, one of the mandali, to rest in a nearby lodge.

Sulloo stayed on in Panchgani for three days. On the second day, while he was having a bath, another of Baba’s disciples, Gustadji, came into the room. Because he was observing silence, Gustadji conveyed through signs that Baba had summoned Sulloo to come to Him immediately. Sulloo had heard that whenever called, one was expected to go without delay. Although he had just started his bath and was wearing only his underwear, he left immediately without taking time to dress further.

He found Baba sitting with a few of His disciples. Half-naked, Sulloo stood before Him. Baba asked, “Have you slept well? Did you have any special thoughts?”

Sulloo replied, “Baba, I spent several hours singing songs in Your praise.”

Baba looked happy and gestured, “Fit for the spiritual path.” As Sulloo had obeyed Baba immediately without question, Baba gave him some guidelines to follow. They were: he should never tell a lie to anyone; he should abstain from lustful actions, smoking, and alcohol; and he should not eat meat, fish, or eggs. Further, Baba instructed Sulloo to meditate for an hour every day and to write “Om Parabrahma Baba” for another hour daily.

On the last day of Sulloo’s visit, Baba ordered Vishnu to make arrangements for his return to Nagpur. Sulloo was taken by car to Poona on the first leg of this trip; and from there a train ticket to Nagpur was bought for him. In short, Baba paid for his entire return fare. What a royal send-off from the King to one of His teenage lovers! He had come to Baba penniless but was leaving with the coffers of his heart filled with real spiritual treasure. He arrived safely in Nagpur, where he gave a full account of his stay with Baba to the Jessawala family.

After this initial meeting, a rapport was established between Sulloo and Baba which continued to grow through the years. Baba sowed the seed of love divine in Sulloo’s heart, and in time this seed began to germinate and flourish as naturally and spontaneously as a bud opening its brightly colored petals to the sunlight. In early 1954 he was inspired to compose songs about Baba in both Hindi and Marathi. Compiled in Meher Prakash Bhajanwali, these songs were the fragrant flowering of Sulloo’s love for the eternal Beloved.

Next morning when he was taking his bath Baba called him through Gustadji, who was also observing Silence as per Baba’s orders. Gustad ji however gestured to Sulloo that Baba wanted him immediately. Sulloo rushed to Baba in whatever state he was while taking his bath. In the presence of all Sulloo appeared before Baba, drenched with water from head to foot and wearing just his underwear. Baba asked him what thoughts were passing in your mind and Sulloo replied that I was taking my bath and I was naked when you called me and I was thinking of immediately rushing to you in the naked state. Baba on hearing this from Sulloo immediately replied through the alphabet board, “FIT FOR THE PATH”. Baba sent Sulloo back to Nagpur after a visit of two days duration, telling him to keep writing to Him regularly.

During 1939 and 1940 Sulloo was in contact with Baba from Nagpur and later in the year 1941 he came to Jabalpur to join the Gun Carriage Factory at Jabalpur. Meher Baba called Sulloo in November 1944 to Nagpur where a darshan program was arranged at Dhantoli by Dr.C.D.Deshmukh. The Chief Justice Mr. M.B. Niyogi was also present at the Darshan program as was the famous Saint of Maharashtra Sant Tukdoji Maharaj, who came for Baba’s darshan along with his followers. Baba embraced Tukdoji Maharaj on the stage. Tukdoji Maharaj sang bhajans before Baba one of which meant” Is there any time left now to work for the Avatar” Avatarache kaam karaya walech ajuni urla ka.

Much later Tukdoji Maharaj also came to Jabalpur for a short stay and was hosted by Dr. Sarde in Napier Town. Sulloo met Maharaj at Jabalpur. Baba once instructed Sulloo to observe silence on every Sunday and also not to touch money. During 1945 Sulloo went to Baba at Meherabad. Since Sulloo had been keeping silence for more than a month, he had brought with him an interpreter, Shri Ramnath Sharma, a co-worker. Baba asked Sulloo to break his silence or Baba would send him to Himalayas. Baba asked Sulloo, “If I send money to your mother every month, will you stay with me?”

Sulloo explained to Baba that he was very eager and restless for self realization; he asked if Baba would give it to him in a fixed time. To this Baba replied that a baby cannot be born before nine months and there is a fixed time for everything, but Baba promised himself realization during this very life. Baba said, “You will do wonders.” Later during the conversation Baba added, “I am one with God and you have surrendered to me; how can I keep you in Maya?” With respect to his friend and interpreter Shri Ramnath Sharma, Baba explained that Sulloo and Sharma were linked through connections from a past life.

Sulloo went to see Baba in the year 1945 at Hyderabad for the Jubilee Hills darshan program. In February 1953, Beloved Baba’s darshan took place at Nagpur. During the last day of the darshan programme, Sulloo went to Nagpur to Barrister Verma’s residence with his son Vijay who was one year and ten months old. Baba touched Vijay and showered His love on Vijay. Vijay’s mother and others bowed down to Baba. Ramjoo Abdulla interpreted Baba’s gestures, telling them that Baba says He delayed His stay at Nagpur for Sulloo to attend the darshan program.

Baba compared him with Sudama, a friend of Lord Krishna

On March 11th 1938, a letter from Sulloo Meshram of Nagpur was received and read out. Baba was in a good mood and remarked, “Such devotees and lovers should be worshipped”. Baba then joined His own hands together and closed His eyes as if praying — something the mandali had never seen Him do before. He had the letter read out again and observed:

“Sulloo is greater than me in the sense that he loves me with such deep devotion. He has seen me only once in Panchgani in 1938, and since then been kept far away. Lovers in that respect are truly great.

“Why did Krishna wash the Sudama’s feet and drink the water? Because of Sudama’s Love. He washed not the feet but the love of Sudama, and drank its water.

“God always is, was and ever will be. But the existence of God’s great and true lovers -like Sudama of Krishna, Sulloo and others now – reflects God’s true greatness. The greatness of their lovers is such that it creates faith in a Master, whom the poor, ignorant lover does not know at all. But because of firm faith, the follower is ready to give up his very life for the Master. Isn’t that greater than God?

“God is always greater in His infinity. But if lovers, in spite of their finiteness, rise to give up all, sacrifice their very lives just for love and faith in their Beloved, whose true being they do not at all know, it is indeed greater. That is why God, even in spite of His infinity, bows to the greatness in recognition of the spirit of selflessness that He beholds in the love and faith of His true lovers.” (Lord Meher page 2769)

During the 1954, Sahavas with Baba in Meherabad a photograph of Baba with Sulloo Meshram, Murli Kale, Raja Sagar Kher, Y. L. Muniraj, and Subedar was taken. Click to see the Photograph. It was a one week stay and much information is available about this programme. The Jabalpur group requested Baba to come to Jabalpur to give public Darshan. Baba replied that He might not give public darshan, and would prefer going to the houses of the families devoted to Baba. Later many preparations were made by Jabalpur Baba lovers anticipating Baba’s visit and even the General Manager of the Gun Carriage Factory had been requested to provide for a bungalow for Baba’s stay. This was discussed with Baba but in 1957 Baba said that He would come one day for just one hour and later said that He would come only after 700 years.

Raja Sagar Kher pressed Baba hard for a darshan program at Jabalpur in 1957. Baba first responded that if Jabalpur will remain He would come. Afterwards, He explained that Jabalpur had been due to be submerged in water, but that He had postponed this tragedy for 40 years.

Exactly 40 years later, Jabalpur was hit by massive earthquake — on 22nd May 1997. There was a risk that the earthquake would rupture Bargi Dam and Hydroelectric Project. If this had happened, scientists calculated that Jabalpur would have been submerged under an eight-meter deep layer of water, but happily the dam held. All Baba lovers now confidently expect that Baba will keep His promise to come to Jabalpur after 700 years.

Baba often remembered Sulloo and wrote long letters and sent Telegrams to him. Once Baba sent Sulloo a single telegram consisting of two full pages. Even the postal department officials were surprised at such an unusual communication. Sulloo gave the telegram to Francis Brabazon and it was incorporated into his book entitled “Tears of Joy”

In 1959, Sulloo went for Baba’s darshan after the death of his second son and later in 1962 attended the East-West Gathering. During this Gathering the war between India and China was going on and one correspondent of the Press asked Baba which country would win the war. Baba replied through another question to the correspondent. Baba simply asked the correspondent to observe which of the two countries Baba had chosen to be His country. The answer was latent in the question.

Sulloo came for darshan again in 1963, and finally attended The Last Darshan in 1969 after Beloved Baba had dropped His body. Sulloo wrote several songs in praise of Meher Baba which were sung in Baba’s presence and from time to time wrote and published several small booklets containing his songs and describing his experiences. Sulloo joined Baba on 31st December 1999, much after his retirement from the Service at Jabalpur. Sulloo lived an isolated life and often confined himself in his room in deep meditation. Those who met him found him always deeply engrossed in Baba and felt that he was hardly aware of the surroundings. Sulloo spent most of his time in his attic room in meditation and in singing the songs of his Beloved; He will be always remembered by all for his simplicity and remarkable obedience.

SUNMAN THOMBE

 

 

SUNMAN THOMBE WAS MARRIED AT THE AGE OF 14, BUT DIVORCED THREE MONTHS LATER. SHE CAME TO LIVE AT KUSHRU QUARTERS AND BEGAN COOK FOR ADI SR. AND HIS FAMILY

Sunman’s father was a watchman for Adi K. Irani at Kushru Quarters, and she would accompany him to his work as a young girl.  At that time Gulmai, Adi Sr.’s mother, noticed her.

Sunman Thombe had worked at Kushru Quarters / Meher Nazar Trust office from the time she was about 14 years old.  She worked as house maid for Adi K. Irani, his mother, Gulmai, and Adi’s sister Dolly.  Sunman came to the attention of Gulmai when she was a young girl accompanying her father to work, who was a watchman at Kushru Quarters.

 

Sunman was married at the age of 14, but was divorced three months later. After a brief marriage she came to live at Kushru Quarters, with her sister, Laxmi. Under Gulmai’s guidance, Sunman began cook for Adi Sr. and his family.   She was trained by Gulmai herself. Once in a while she had the opportunity to prepare food for Meher Baba and the mandali at Meherazad.  However, once the word got out that she was the one preparing such delicious food, some of the mandali requested her to send food more often!

 

She first met Meher Baba in the early 1950s, when she was about 10 years old and a bit shy and after that, she would meet Baba when he came to Adi Sr.’s home.  She would come to receive His prasad of sweets, but would go away quickly.  However, she said that when she saw His face, it was like the most beautiful sun shining.  As her family lived close to Kushru Quarters, whenever word came that Baba was about to arrive, her father would run home and tell all the family to come quickly for Baba’s darshan.  They would all wash and dress up very fast in order to be ready when Meher Baba arrived.  Baba captured the hearts of her whole family and Sunman is very happy to have been able to spend her whole life serving Him.

SUPERINTENDENT OF YERVEDA JAIL

In year 1964, Baba went to Yerveda Jail to see Randelia Beli Pheroz a prisoner who was convicted for murder of his brother and surrendered to police on behest of Meher Baba.

Baba was met first by the prison officials, who received him with utmost respect and reverence. A reception was arranged, and the superintendent of the prison was highly gratified at having Baba's darshan. (Lord   Meher-p-3645-1954)

 

 

SWAMI BHASKARESHWAR ANANDA

On 27th December 1937, a large public darshan was held in the evening at the Jessawalas' bungalow. The head swami of the Ramakrishna Ashram, Bhaskareshwar Ananda in Nagpur attended the 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!"  (Lord Meher-p-1895-1937)

 

SWAMI BHABANAND

 

SWAMI BHABANANDA COMMITTED SUICIDE IN MAHABALESHWAR. HE HAD MURDERED A MAN AND HENCE, PRESUMABLY, HIS GUILT LED HIM TO HANG HIMSELF.

Without warning, on 10 September 1941, Swami Bhabananda committed suicide in Mahabaleshwar. For a few days, the police did not connect him with the rest of Baba's men staying there. Gustadji and Pleader were nevertheless reluctant to continue staying so close to the scene of the death, and so Baba called them to Panchgani on 19th September.

Bhabananda had joined Meher Baba in Bangalore and had been staying in Meherabad. The men mandali later learned that, before meeting Baba, he had murdered a man and hence, presumably, his guilt led him to hang himself. After hearing of Bhabananda's suicide, Baba commented, "He will immediately take another birth and advance spiritually."
