BABA WEPT FOR UNIVERSAL SUFFERING

Adi Sr. would be on watch with him for some hours, during which Baba would have Adi massage his legs. Once when Adi was on watch, he witnessed Baba silently weeping. Adi kept quiet as Baba wept (actually shedding tears) but he did not ask the reason.

On another night when Adi was on duty, Baba gestured to him to stop pressing his legs. Baba was suddenly overcome with pain; he was unable to sit or stand, and lay sprawled on the stone floor of the room writhing in intense agony. Sweat broke out on his forehead, and then his hands and feet turned cold. This went on for 20 minutes and the sight was almost unbearable for Adi to behold. He did not know what to do to console Baba. He wiped Baba's forehead, and after a while Baba rested his head on Adi's lap and lay still.

Later, Baba remarked, "Today you have had ample evidence of what my Universal suffering means!"
