Baba would come alive in his photographs if viewed with all love

Baba then returned to Y. V. Narasimha Rao’s bungalow. While returning, a garland fell down. Hellan picked it up, intending to give it to Pankhraj, because Baba had given Pankhraj the duty of collecting all garlands given him. But Baba sent for the garland, touched it and with his own hands gave it to Pankhraj.

Similarly, during the darshan programs when people would bring photographs to Baba of him to touch, if accidentally any one of them fell down in the midst of the thick crowd, Baba would have it picked up, touch it or touch it to his forehead, and then return it to its owner. This was a lesson for all to observe that Meher Baba’s photographs were to be cherished and treated with the greatest reverence, love and faith as a representation of him worthy of being worshiped. (On occasion, if viewed with all love, Baba indicated that he would come alive in his photographs.)
