Remembering Dear Eruch Jassawala – “…a day will come when I will lend you My hand and pull you out of the muck of illusion.”

Vengurla was a fishing community and for as far as Baba and Eruch could see, the waters were dotted with peculiar makeshift fishing boats. These canoes were really huge tree trunks which had their centers carved out to form a hold for the fish and the boys would swim alongside, guiding the boats to […]

Balancing the thoughts of the mind and the feelings of the heart

To help others through one’s own example, one must get not only thoroughly drenched but drowned in love. As a prelude one should attempt to create a balance between the thoughts of the mind and the feelings of the heart. Mind, however, works much faster. Thoughts are like lightning — first there is the […]

“I want such persons who can demolish the roofs of low desires by spreading my message of love”

If you look back on my life and work, I never have anything permanent. Hospitals, schools, ashrams were constructed and pulled down, because I have no need of any establishment or organization. Yet I want workers. Why? To make people ready to receive what God will make me give. The morning sun sheds its […]

“Dress your soul only once in a day with thoughts of Baba”

“Attend to all your duties; you can still love Baba by dedicating all your good and bad to me. Just as you cover your body with clothes and forget all about the dress you wear all day, similarly dress your soul only once in a day with thoughts of Baba, and Baba will then […]

The practical way for the common man to express this love

God does not listen to the language of the tongue, which constitutes japa, zikra, mantras and devotional songs. He does not listen to the language of the mind, which constitutes meditation, concentration and thoughts about God. He listens only to the language of the heart which constitutes love.

So, love God and become free […]

“In such great uncertainty, real work is being done”

On Saturday, 19 September 1942, Baba explained about his work:

Reality is; unreality is not! Unreality, or “nothing,” is in the air. My work, too, is in the air and, because of that, it looks to you uncertain. I often make changes. Several times I have repeated that this is my last […]

“That is why I say only love me”

Krishna asked Baba something he had often wondered about: “Baba, previously you had taken birth for the Hindus as Ram and Krishna, then for the Christians as Jesus Christ, after that as Muhammad. Now you have come as a Zoroastrian. Have you come only for the Parsis?”

“No. Now I am for […]

“When I take physical form, it is my reflection that descends”

One night, when Krishna was sitting on watch inside Baba’s room, at eleven-thirty Baba ordered him to sit outside and to take a round every half an hour. On his second round, Krishna spotted a large cobra. While killing it, he made some noise and Baba clapped. Krishna brought the snake and Baba complimented […]

“Beloved God Prayer”

“Last night, Baba’s health was very bad,” Pendu said. “These days, he generally feels unwell at night, but yesterday was worse.”

Baba’s face still appeared dark.

Baba stated that he would dictate a prayer, but before this he asked Aloba to perform namaz (Muslim prayer). Eruch was directed to recite the Master’s Prayer.

“Last […]

The Repentance Prayer – Part 2 (Final)

The Dnyani, however, because he knows the Truth by actual experience, is utterly free from these bindings, and he therefore knows that, as a Dnyani, he is exempt from the law of karma. Since he knows the nature of good and evil, he also knows that no one is to be blamed […]
