“The hypocrite deceives himself and others too”

“The only sin which God does not forgive is hypocrisy. The hypocrite deceives himself and others too. These days the hypocritical saints have increased in such numbers that, though I am the Ocean of Compassion, it has become nauseating even to me!”

He also said, “It is no sin if one does not believe […]

What is grace?

What is grace? Suppose one becomes one hundred percent prepared and then realizes himself as God; that is not grace. If the worst sinner were before me and I got the whim, I could make him realize God in a flash. This is grace. Once my grace descends upon anyone, that very instant he […]

“Just go on thinking of me and leave everything to me”


Adarsh Khare said, “I want such love whereby I can really see you.”

Baba replied:

“For such love, my grace is required.

If showered spontaneously and of my own accord, it is like nectar. If asked for, it is like plain water. If anyone insists on it, it proves like poison.

So, just […]

“He needs to be awakened by prayer.”

Padri, rather exasperated, confronted Baba, saying, “God is omnipresent and omniscient, so why pray for his blessing?”

“God is omnipresent,” Baba agreed, “but he plays with closed eyes! He is inattentive, so he needs to be awakened by prayer.”

Moral and spiritual progress alongside material progress

On Sunday, 15 December 1968, Dr. Grant came to Meherazad at 7:30 A.M. from Poona with his nurse, and gave Baba a blood transfusion and administered a cardiogram. Meherjee came with Dr. Wadia and Dr. Ichaporia, and Adi and Don were also present.

Baba was in a very good mood and during the session, […]

“It is better to deny God than to defy God”

God alone is real, and undoubtedly God exists. I am God. I am God in human form and God the Beyond. I experience my being infinite continuously, without a break. I suffer infinitely; I have the burden of the whole universe on my head. I am the Highest, and yet I come down to […]

“It takes great daring to obey me. Be brave, do not be afraid. I am with you.”

Baba smiled and asked, “Is there anything you want?”

[Robert Dreyfuss]:”Yes, Baba. I want to love you as you should be loved. I want to see and love you in everyone and everything, always, for the benefit of others.”

In reply, Baba said:

If you want this prem [love] that […]

“It is good to excel in whatever one takes up, so long as there is a feeling of humility”

After lunch, Baba sat on the verandah surrounded by his lovers. The main hall was completely vacated, as Baba agreed to distribute trophies that day to several cricket teams of the Poona District Cricket Association. The different teams collected in the hall about 1:45 P.M.

Eruch read out Baba’s message to the cricket players:


Baba’s will and our response

Some days later, Eruch read Hoshang Dadachanji’s letter to Baba, in which he mentioned this tragedy: “May our Beloved Baba give [the Arjani family] the strength to bow down to his will.”

Baba commented:

“The one who knows how to bow down to my will must necessarily be a strong man. A man […]

“Anything given with love is not lost.”

Occasionally, Baba permitted his lovers to pay to have food prepared for himself and the mandali on some special occasion or celebration, such as a birthday or anniversary. Adi Ghaswala, a Bombay lover, sent Adi Sr. a check or money order for Rs.100 for food to be sent for Baba, but the money was […]
