Book Two

"Most God-realised souls leave the body at once and forever, and remain eternally merged in the unmanifest aspect of God. They are conscious only of the bliss of union. Creation no longer exists for them. Their constant round of births and deaths is ended. This is known as Mukti or Liberation."

Meher Baba, Di v1 p2

"Good actions bind a man with a golden chain, and bad actions with iron and spiked chains. But the chain is there in either case. The man has not been set free. Yoga or other studies are good actions, and they give the person a better chance in the next incarnation. But they do not set him free, or give Liberation. To have Liberation, one must neither have virtue nor vice on one's credit or debit side. But it should be a clean slate, to reach the state described in an Urdu couplet:

'We shall not go either to heaven or hell

But on the day of final judgement we shall stand gazing at the face of Muhammad.'

"And this is impossible to reach without the grace of the Guru. For a Master, it is the work of a moment, though. The vast and almost infinite impressions of a person may be likened to a heap of dry grass, which it is impossible for the person to clean out. Even the process of cleaning out without a Master, that is, through yoga, etc., means contracting impressions again in different forms.

"But this heap of dry grass is a work of a moment for a lighted match, which only the Perfect Master possesses. The Perfect Master uses his matches, but mostly for the members of his Circle only, and thus at the right moment brings them to his own level in less than a second. But even those who have no direct connection with a Perfect Master can derive the greatest personal benefit merely through the contact and company of his personality:

'One moment, half a moment, and even half of a half of a moment

In contact with a Perfect Master, and ten million of your sins are washed away.'"

Meher Baba, 4 October 1922, Bombay, RD p79-80

Part of another version of the same explanation:

"No yogi can attain eternal freedom or emancipation, even though he might have reached the highest yogic state of samadhi through his practices, because sanskaras are still there, and all ties have not yet been snapped...

"Yoga and other practices are good, and merit an aspirant a good life in the next birth, but a man is never free from bondage or given Mukti (Liberation) as a result of them."

LM2 p418-419

"The Muslim inmates of Manzil-e-Meem came in for a good deal of Baba's attention, and much light was thrown on the vexing question of shariat (external religion), the bugbear of the Muslim world when confronted with spirituality and saintliness. A Muslim friend of mine quoted the words of the Persian poet Saadi:

'Verily it is worse than the tortures of hell

to walk into heaven with the feet of another.' "Meher Baba said,

'It is really a commendable attitude if heaven can be earned by one's own exertions, instead of depending for its acquisition on the grace of another. Leaving aside the question of aspiring for Khuda-shanashi (God-realisation), the regrettable position is that even the problem of heaven is being relegated to the mercy and grace of Rasul-e-Khuda (the Prophet of God).

'My disciples are not concerned with heaven or hell. They find themselves confronted with the ideal of realisation of Truth - God - Divinity. The gnosis of God is impossible for anyone to attain without the help of a Murshid (Master), and the Sufi world insists upon the need of a Master in unmistakeable terms.

'By one's own unaided exertions, one either creates heaven or hell, and both are limiting and binding. Heaven represents the result of too many good actions (neki), and hell is the outcome of too many bad actions (badi). In order to attain Najaat (Mukti, Liberation), a correct balance of good and bad actions must be struck. The credit and debit side of good and bad actions must cancel each other, and the balance sheet must show zero on both sides. This result can only be brought about by a Master. If left to individual efforts, one or the other side must predominate, bringing in its wake the situation known to the laity as heaven or hell.

'I do not advocate even the state of Najaat - Mukti* (Liberation of the individual soul) because you were already that prior to the precipitation of the universe. If salvation means reverting to the original state of the ocean, then all the travails of the bubble (individual soul) through the long and laborious stages of evolution have been to no purpose. With me, Najaat means the realisation of abdiat (bubble-state) and mabudiat (ocean-state) at one and the same time. Whosoever realises this state can be said to be Perfect. This stage of Perfection is known to the Sufis as the reality of Muhammad (Haqiqat-e-Muhammadi), the divine 'I' state, the raison d'etre* of creation.

'Among many other methods advocated and practised for realising the state of Perfection, the best and the easiest is the company of a Perfect Master. Living with me as you do, you are considered to have renounced the world in spite of living in it. Every moment passed in the company of a Master may be said to be spent in what the people call ibadat (devotion).'"

Abdul Ghani, about Baba's stay in Bombay in 1922, BG p60-61
(For another related quote, see RD p81-82)
*raison d'etre = reason for being

"Without the sanskaras being totally eliminated, there is no spiritual Liberation. To dispose of sanskaras, one has to create reverse sanskaras which are opposite in nature. Opposite impressions reverse the sanskaric makeup of the mind. To remove stains, soap or lime is necessary. But the mind never dies of itself.

"For example, suppose your hand is to be broken. It is difficult and almost impossible for you to twist your own hand enough to break it. But if a strong fellow comes along and twists it, your hand fractures in a second. That powerful man is the Sadguru, who is required to deal with the mind and all its mischief.

"But a Sadguru is not to be found so easily. It requires love, the search for Truth amidst hardships and sufferings, and undergoing untold difficulties. These draw the Sadguru to the deserving ones.

"If by hurting a person temporarily, you provide a permanent healing, this apparently cruel act of yours is, in fact, a blessing. In the same way, suppose that by rendering a temporary healing, you create a permanent hurt. This apparently blessed act of yours is, in fact, a curse. A doctor cutting open a boil and causing so much pain to the sufferer is considered an enemy who has hurt one. But when the pus is removed, the patient is relieved, and the doctor is considered a real friend who helped.

"So the Sadguru is at first apparently considered an enemy when he tries to remove sins and wipe out desires and sanskaras of the aspirant by forcing strict discipline on him, renunciation, etc. But when the bliss of union with the beloved God is attained through his grace, he is considered a true friend."

Meher Baba, 9 December 1927, Meherabad, LM3 p991

"Love and self-surrender both lead one to the goal. But generally on the path of love, one drops his body after reaching the final destination. Whereas the one who treads the path of surrender, besides becoming conscious of God, also becomes conscious of the three spheres - Gross, Subtle and Mental - and thus returns to Gross consciousness to serve as a beacon of light to others on the Path. That is why surrendering is better than love."

Meher Baba, 18 February 1930
Nasik, LM4 p1269

Munshi Rahim came with his adopted son Bashir to see Baba. Baba had Bashir sit by his side and told the Mandali:

"Bashir's state is unequalled. He remains quite detached from worldly things. You people have been with me for years, and still demand clothes, soap, razor blades, and a dozen other things. If his present state of detechment lasts, Bashir will one day gain Salvation through my grace. He will then have achieved the aim of his life."

Baba then sent out almost everyone, and asked Bashir what he really wanted. Bashir replied, "Baba, help me find a good job, as I am in need of money."

Baba smiled, and spelled out on the board, "See how I raised you up in the presence of all the Mandali, and you have now brought it all tumbling down. You have come down from the heights of Mukti (Liberation) to finding employment."

Baba asked Rustom to give Bashir a job, and Bashir gratefully accepted it.

20 August 1933, Nasik, LM5 p1804

"All relations of those who are with me, whether they know me or not, or even if they do not believe in me, get salvation. Krishna has said, 'Seventy-two generations of such lucky ones get Liberation - Mukti.'"

Meher Baba, 27 November 1940, Ceylon
to Irene Billo, LM7 p2643

"I am God, the supreme Liberator, and if you knew what strides you have been making toward Liberation by the trials through which you have been going since you left me, you would be overcome with gratitude instead of filled with discontent.

"It is true, I use the circumstances of everyday life to Liberate my devotees, but I use them in a way that is beyond the the comprehension of the intellect. So you must not expect me to provide you with blueprints of my plans, either individual or universal.

"Have faith in me, supreme faith. I am always with you, directing you as my own vehicle, my own son. Whatever is accomplished in all that you do or do not do is always my will.

"You are an instrument in my divine orchestra, an instrument which I need, but which must be Perfected. I shall never fail you, nor will you fail me. You must continue to be brave as you have been."

Meher Baba, 1940s, India, from a letter
to Garrett Fort, LM6 p2141

"God is eternally free. To realise God is to attain Liberation from the bondage of illusion."

Meher Baba, 1954, Andhra, MD p8

"Realisation can be imparted to anyone in a second. It will then be for one's own self only, with no benefit to others. The period of austerity, self-denial and hardship which one undergoes with a Master, engenders power and gives authority to use Realisation, when achieved, for the spiritual awakening of others."

Meher Baba, before 1955, GS p263-264

"Baba wants you both to know that he is the Ancient one. Baba is Krishna of Mahabharata, Rama of Ramayana, Jesus of Bethlehem, Buddha of Buddha Gaya, Muhammad of Arabia, and Zoroaster of Persia, and many, many of many, many such advents of the past, and will be the same one of the future of the earth.

"You are blessed to have come in his intimate contact, and to have heard directly from Baba himself that Baba is the Ancient one. This very thought is sufficient for one's births to come, and for one's Liberation. Baba sends his love to you both."

Letter from Baba to W.D. and Prabha Kain
sometime after August 1955, ML p105-106

"All this world is nothing, an illusion. I am in everything. I tell you with my authority. I am in everything. Love me, and that way when you drop your bodies, then you are with me eternally."

22 July 1956, New York, Aw 4:2 p 29

"Those who remember Baba wholeheartedly, or repeat his name while breathing their last, come to Baba when they drop their body. They are Liberated from the rounds of births and deaths, and experience eternal bliss. Only Baba's grace makes it possible.

"Those who are close to Baba in their love for him, but drop their body without their last thought being of Baba, or without his name on their lips, also come to Baba. When they reincarnate, they are born in a very intimate Baba family. Such souls come to Baba in human form, when Baba says of them they have 'come to me.'

"Those who know of Baba, and die without their last thought being of Baba, and without his name on their lips, but die with thoughts of God or of the spiritual path, also come to Baba, when Baba specifically remarks they have 'come to me'. Such souls reincarnate with intense desire to lead a spiritual life, and through their search for God, they eventually come to Baba by contacting him in his physical body.

"Thus, when Baba says so and so has 'come to me', it has different meanings for different ones. As for the Mandali of Baba, and the very intimate men and women disciples, their case is entirely different. Their very existence is because of the breath of Baba's grace, and with or without their body, their existence is in Baba."

Mani Irani, in a letter to Kitty Davy, September 2, 1966

"Lord Krishna said, 'Antakale cha mameva smaran muktva kalevaram,' meaning 'Whoever remembers me at the last moment comes to me.'

"It means that remembering his name, his good or bad actions, his various activities at the last moment, leads one to him. It even means that without actually remembering him at the last moment, one goes to him - that instead of actually remembering him, if one only remembers any worldly action of his or anything worldly one heard about him at the last moment, one goes to him...

"Once association with God is well-established, then, as all the worldly things stand before one's eyes at the last moment, that association will also be there at that time. Meaning, whatever good or bad one may have done in the cause of Lord Krishna is bound to have its effect in the end.

"What is commonly remembered most? Things that have occurred against one's will and understanding are always remembered better. That is why being beaten by a Perfect one, or the abuses he had given, or his association with a prostitute, and things like that, which are opposed to the common ways of the world, force themselves before one's eyes at the last moment.

"If you firmly believe the Perfect one to be Lord Krishna, then Lord Krishna is bound to stand before you at the last moment. If you remember a piece of this sack-cloth, a tree from here, the garden, all my whimsical activities, the cage, the hut, the tipris, or anything from this place for that matter, that is bound to stand before you at the last moment. In short, anything good or bad experienced in association with a Perfect one is useful in the end.

"All this talk is to explain why the Perfect ones are seen to behave in various funny ways, or in ways considered indecent in the world. Remember that a Perfect one never does anything on his own. Whatever he does, he does spontaneously. Whatever you see or hear from him always leads to eternal happiness...

"Remember and remember well, that remembrance of anything pertaining to God or a Perfect one, even a mimicry of him, is never wasted..."

Upasani Maharaj, 12 November 1924, Sakori
The Talks of Sadguru Upasani Baba Maharaja, v4 p419-423

Meher Baba went with his men disciples to see the film 'The Ten Commandments' in Bombay in January, 1958. Afterwards, Baba commented that Moses was a soul on the sixth plane who realised God when he died (GO p159). He also explained that RAMESES (the old pharaoh portrayed in the film) had attained Mukti by taking Moses' name when he died. Baba also said the Pharaoh's son (portrayed by Yul Brynner in the film) entered the spiritual path in his next life.

FL p32

Baba's brother JAMSHED IRANI died February 26 or 27, 1926 (LM3 p779-785). Baba later commented about his death:

'If you love me, you are with me. Then you come to me. Through love, you can become one with me. My brother Jamshed loved me very much. He was mad with love for me. Once he was so full of love for me that he couldn't contain himself, and he dropped his body. But just before dying, he shouted out loudly "Baba!" He has come to me. He is now with me eternally.'

21 July 1956, New York, Aw 4:2 p26

'My brother Jamshed, when we were boys, used to quarrel and fight with me. As he grew older, Jamshed began to love me. Later on, in Meherabad, he couldn't sleep because he thought all the time about me. When he went to Poona, all of a sudden he had a splitting headache, and the heart felt heavy. And just before an attack of apoplexy, he felt very blissful. He shouted my name, and then fell into a coma. And during those three hours, his lips were moving with the rhythm, "Baba, Baba, Baba." Mani was there. Then he died. He came to me.'

28 May 1958, Myrtle Beach, GM p337

GOPAL SWAMI came to stay at Meherabad in January 1926. One day in August 1926, Baba was in a happy mood and said to Gopal Swami, "Tell me what you most desire."

Gopal: "Nothing."

Baba: "Go on, ask me. Ask for anything. Tell me your desires now, and I will grant them." Gopal was silent and smiled. Baba went on, "Speak out. Empty your head and heart before me. Now is the time. I, of my own accord and will, am asking you to have your desires fulfilled. Now is the time when I am in that mood." The other mandali also encouraged Gopal to speak.

Gopal: "Mukti."

Baba: "Granted. So be it."

Baba told the mandali: "Gopal is a very good and sincere devotee. He is the only determined and staunch keeper of my orders. Out of the many (yogis, sadhus, fakirs and ascetics) who have come seeking spiritual advancement, he is the only one who has survived and not run away on one pretext or another. He obeys me without question, and willingly accepts whatever food is offered to him."

Baba told Gopal: "I will fulfill your wish, and in this birth. But suppose I were to give you the form of a donkey, a leper or a criminal in the next?"

Gopal: "As you wish, Baba, if it would be your pleasure."

LM3 p835-836

GENU CHAMHAR, a student at Baba's school for boys, died of pneumonia in 1929. Baba said, 'Genu has won... He is with me. He is freed, and has no more births left. He has attained Mukti.'

LM3 p1143-1144

Meher Baba's father SHERIAR IRANI (called Bobo by his children) died in 1932. Baba told his brothers Beheram and Adi,

'Death is necessary and is like sleep. When a person awakes from sleep, he finds himself as he was. However, after death, a person finds himself in a different atmosphere and in a different body. Both death and birth are dreams. Where is the sense in being merry or miserable for the sake of a dream? Bobo's death, however, is not sleep. He has gone beyond it and is awake forever. He is emancipated, and has been given Mukti - Liberation.'

LM5 p1603-1604

NONNY GAYLEY died October 14, 1939. Baba told her daughter Rano, "Nonny was one of my greatest lovers." and that he had given Nonny Mukti - Liberation.

LM7 p2461

BUASAHEB (Behramji Irani) died in a motorcycle accident May 1, 1940. Baba told the Mandali, "As one of my nearest and dearest disciples, he unconsciously, when alive, was one with me, and now that he has left the body, he consciously enjoys that blessed union with me."

LM7 p2555

WARRIOR was an Alsatian puppy, who died September 28, 1940 at Meherabad. Baba explained,

"Warrior was not actually a dog, but was temporarily brought down from the spirit world to do this work. I needed a dog for that kind of work. I won't go too deeply into the matter...

"When Warrior got very ill, I saw that if he died within three days, he would again have to take another birth, which would not have been safe for him. I saw to it that he did not pass away. So when in those three days he did not die, I was happy. Now no more birth for him.

"When Masters touch the dead bodies of animals, the animals get human forms in their next lives. Those animals who are in contact with Masters get forms of spiritual souls in the next birth. But for Warrior, no more birth. Had he died within three days, it would have been different...

"He played a part in my work which none of you can ever grasp. He shared my work, and now he is free... He was a real warrior..."

LM7 p2617-2619

Warrior was buried on Meherabad hill near the grave of Nonny Gayley.

OTTO BILLO, who had met Baba in Switzerland, died at the end of October 1940. Baba told his daughter Irene, "You should be happy. Your father is very lucky. He died like Vivekananda, without suffering. He is free. "All relations of those who are with me, whether they know me or not, or even if they do not believe in me, get salvation. Krishna has said, 'Seventy-two generations of such lucky ones get Liberation - Mukti.'"

27 November 1940, Ceylon, LM7 p2643

Baba's mother SHIREEN IRANI (Shireenmai) died February 25, 1943. Baba said, "She is now freed." Later he explained to members of his family,

"Memo has come to me and is now fully in bliss. She helped me so much in my work, and after playing her part she has come to me. She was an exceedingly adventurous woman, and extremely fearless...

"Now Memo is quite happy, and free of all worldly ties."

LM8 p2853

Baba had said earlier,

"My father Sheriar was an extremely good soul. His heart was very good, and he was quiet by nature. But the nature of my mother Shireen is just the opposite. I have to balance both the favorable and unfavorable dispositions. I tolerate a lot, and have to suffer much because of her nature. Still, I love them both, and both will be emancipated and gain salvation."

4 Dec. 1941, LM8 p2739

"Although Shireenmai's body had been disposed of at the Parsi tower of silence in Poona, Baba ordered a memorial for her and Sheriar erected on Meherabad Hill, and this work was carried out in June 1943. When the memorial was ready, Baba with his own hands placed a few of their personal effects in it: a silver snuffbox of Sheriar's, and Shireenmai's eyeglasses. Baba dictated the inscription on their tombstone as follows,

'In eternal memory of Meher Baba's blessed parents Sheriarji and Shireenmai, who are now merged in Baba's infinity.'"

Bhau Kalchuri, LM8 p28962

CHANJI (Framroz Dadachanji) died August 25, 1944 in Kashmir. Baba dictated a cable, "Chanji has come to me forever. He has joined me eternally, and no one should worry." (LM8 p2969-2970). Baba dictated the following about him:

"Framroze H. Dadachanji
Born on 23rd November 1893. Died on 25th August 1944.

An ardent and very close disciple of Shri Meher Baba of Ahmednagar. He spent twenty years of his life as a personal secretary in the devoted service of Baba. He strove to alleviate the suffering of all with whom he came in contact, and especially exerted his utmost bringing the Parsi community to the pedestal of the true spiritual understanding through the contact and grace of Baba. For time to come, he leaves a vast record of events of Baba's life, with their spiritual significance explained. With Baba he traveled the world over several times, drawing up itineraries and gathering the records of his Master's work with untiring energy. Whilst doing his duties as one of the most trusted and dear ones of Baba, he laid down his life with the name of Baba on his lips."

GO p84

Baba also said of him, "Chanji was not only my disciple, he was my friend."

GO p84

JAL KERAWALLA died October 6, 1952. Baba said of Jal,

"Jal lived for me and died for me."

"His connection with me was and is unique. His love for me was unbounded, his faith in me complete, his obedience to my orders implicit, and his surrenderance to my will absolute... My beloved Jal has come to me eternally in peace."

LC p17, GG3 p257

Dr. ABDUL GHANI Munsiff died August 7, 1951. Baba commented,

"Ghani and Jal have won, that is what I feel. The last word that Jal uttered as he breathed his last was 'Baba.' How fortunate. Indeed, such cases are rare."

Nov. 2 1952, GG3 p136

DAULATMAI IRANI, Mehera's mother, died November 4, 1952. Baba said, "My dear Daulatmai, by God's grace, will live in me forever."

GG3 p162

Dr. NERULA, the principal of a college in Amravati called Vidarbha Mahavidyalaya, met Meher Baba in December 1952. Nerula was a devotee of Ramakrishna, who died in 1886. Baba told him,

"I authoritatively declare that I am the Avatar, the Ancient One... Ramakrishna was a rare type of Perfect Master. Go on loving him, and one day you will find him... A few hours before your death you will see me in the form of Ramakrishna, and you will realise God."

GG3 p248

MILDRED KYLE died in 1954 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Baba dictated a cable: "Mildred has found eternal peace in me."

Later, when her ashes were buried at Meherabad, the stone over her grave was inscribed, "Mildred Kyle has come to Baba."

NOZHER DADACHANJI, a pilot in the Indian Air Force, died in an airplane accident October 13, 1955, He was 22. Baba dictated a cable:

"I have physically lost my gem Nozher, and Nozher has gained me spiritually by loving me to his last breath. Let us be brave and not selfish, but rejoice in Nozher's bliss... for such souls are instrumental in showing to us how to love and be worthy of the beloved. Baba"

GO p137

Baba told Nozher's father,

"If I had sent Nozher to England, and given him the order never to return to India, and if I had then given you the order never to see him again, you would be happy that Nozher was alive and doing what I wanted him to do - isn't that so? ('Yes, Baba.") I want you to consider it that way - that I have sent Nozher somewhere. Think that I have called him to me, and that I am telling you never to see him again. What is this body, after all? Nozher wasn't his body. The difference is that you can't see him now. I gave Nozher the order always to repeat my name before flying, and as soon as he sat in the plane the last time, he came to me. He is with me, and he is so happy!"

GO p138

Later Baba explained,

'I am never sorry for anyone who dies. He who dies with my name on his lips, with me in his heart, never dies. I never worry about them, for theirs is no loss. If I am ever worried, it is for those that suffer through the death, which they might allow to alienate them from me. That would be their loss indeed. Why suffer unnecessarily? My dead live in me. That should make you happy. So why not rejoice in his happiness? Loving me as you do, knowing me for the one I am, you should be only happy to know Nozher is happy in me. Knowing this, any mourning you may do therefore must be for yourselves only, from selfish motives. You don't know how fortunate they are who die with my name on their lips and in their hearts.'

AL p94

'He was a handsome young man, and deeply devoted to me... As I had instructed him, he never failed to take my name each time before flying... Nozher was one of my gems. He died with my name on his lips, and has come to me... In reality, there is nothing such as death or birth. I know this, and I say it with the authority of my conscious knowledge. We are all in eternity, and we will always be there. Really, none comes or goes, none is born or dies. But to experience this truth, we must first free ourselves from the bondage of our ignorance. After a hundred years or so, you will all have dropped your bodies, and yet you will still exist. Do not think about your bodies, but think only about me. Then, before you drop your bodies, you will be able to remember me. My miracle will be to make you become me.'

LH p85-86

Baba asked the family for a large photograph of Nozher. He kept it in his Rahuri cabin at Meherabad for some years, and then had it brought to Meherazad.

MITHILESH, the three year old daughter of followers of Baba in Dehra Dun, died January 3, 1957 saying Baba's name. Baba said of her,

'She is the most fortunate of fortunates, as are all who die taking my name.'

FL p14

CURSHET TALATI died in 1958 in London saying Baba's name. Baba told his mother, Dina Talati,

'Be happy. Curshet is not dead. He lives in me.'

FL p32

Baba said in 1958 that his aunt had taken his name when she died: 'My name was on her lips when she dropped her body.'

GM p337

After GADEKAR, an old devotee of Baba, died in March 1959, Baba's sister Mani wrote,

'Baba told us only he knew how fortunate Gadekar was, who also with his last breath had called out Baba's name and had come to him forever."

FL p50

SRINIVASAN MUDALIAR died in a fall from a ladder in 1959. Baba had Adi cable his family,

'Baba wants the Mudaliar family to know that his dear Srinivasan has earned his nivas (abode) in his beloved Baba.'

FL p62

MARY BACKETT died in 1962. Baba cabled her husband Will, 'My Archangel Mary has come to me after fulfilling her appointed task. Be happy in my love.' WILL BACKETT died about eight months later. Baba cabled Mollie Eve, 'Both my dear Archangels Will and Mary Backett have come to me for all time.'

FL p142, 166

KODURI KRISHNARAO died in 1965. Baba wrote Krishnarao's wife:

'Your husband Koduri Krishnarao's love for me and his service in the cause of the Avatar have made him immortal. Krishnarao now lives eternally in me and is blissfully happy. I want you to be brave and to keep happy in Krishnarao's happiness. My love blessing to you and your dear children.'

Baba cabled the Andhra group,

'Koduri Krishnarao was one of my dearest lovers, and has come to rest eternally in me.'

FL p238

When BAPUSAHIB SHINDE died in 1966, Baba sent a message to all his centers:

'Bapusahib Shinde has come to me to rest in me eternally. One of my dearest lovers and workers, Bapusahib served me wholeheartedly and shared in my suffering.'

Baba told the Mandali, 'I have lost Bapusahib Shinde, but he has found me.'

FL p253-254
