“Rewards in proportion to their love, service, faith and honesty”

 

On 21 May, according to his wish, Eruch read out the names of the departed ones as he had done in Meherazad in November, and recited the same one-line prayer Baba had dictated at that time,

The more fortunate woman

Once at Guruprasad, two women happened to arrive at the same time and requested permission to meet Baba. One was an Indian and the other was from the Netherlands.

“Search within your heart for that which is true and lasting”

During the darshan, a Dutch woman, married to an Indian editor and living in South Africa, came to meet Baba. She was a social worker and had been traveling extensively in India in the course of her work. She had happened to go by Guruprasad and was drawn inside by curiosity.

And who are the strangers? Wants, desires, thoughts! They are all so compressed within you that they leave no room for […]

“You should face every situation with complete faith in God’s will.”

A young college graduate who had been loving Baba from his teenage years came for darshan with his two sons on Thursday, 12 May 1960. Baba remarked to him:

“Once you were a child, and now you have come with children. As one grows in age there is a nonstop flow of positive desires. […]

“Baba is present everywhere, but you must ever keep him in your remembrance”

Dedolchow said, “Baba, I am unable to love you as much as I wish. I want to love you as you want to be loved. I long to do that.”
