To love Baba in hopes of achieving health, wealth, betterment of family and friends, etc., is to love […]

No compromise in loving God

 

Margaret Scott had not seen Baba since 1935. “I am sorry I caused you suffering, Baba, for I know you have suffered for me,” she said.

“But your love has compensated for all the suffering,” Baba assured her. “I know deep down you do love me. Baba loves you, too.”

Margaret said, “Sometimes […]

Significance of prasad

Afterwards Baba walked slowly out of the house, assisted by Adi and Eruch. He stopped near a magnolia tree in the shade and an upholstered chair was brought for him. He began throwing pieces of candy to the men, looking in one direction and throwing in another.

What matters is your heart

The prayer that God hears is the prayer of the heart, that raising of the heart, that suffering of the heart — that is what God pays attention to. And so it does not matter, and certainly it is foolish to rely upon the usual religious practices and ritual. What matters is your heart, […]

“Once you come to know that this body is not you, then that veil of ignorance is lifted”

After one woman sang a song, Baba dictated:

One who hears the music of God in his heart – such wonderful music, for it is the Original Music – loses his bodily consciousness and sees God everywhere.

To lose one’s life is to die by inches

Baba with Keshav Mast

In pursuance of name and fame, and goaded by the applause of the expectant multitude, people have given their lives for a great cause, for their honor, their religion, their country. Even cowards have given up their lives under a sudden impulse, or on an uncontrollable provocation. Such […]

“Do everything, but don’t worry”

Why worry?! Worry is unnecessary. Necessary worry is not good, but unnecessary worry is madness. If I say: “Be happy!” be happy at once! Forget. Away with it! Why brood? I never brood. Laugh! Be cheerful! It is all illusion — why not be cheerful, happy? Start now!!

Do everything, but don’t worry. Worrying […]
