The Amartithi: “To Live Eternally In The Hearts of All His Lovers”

“Since eternity! I never come and I never go. I am present everywhere. Isn’t it wonderful that I never leave?”

… Now, Eruch reminded Mani about it. “Where is the record, Begin The Beguine, and the gramophone?” he asked. “We have to take it with us to Meherabad.” Mani looked at him […]

The Amartithi: “This is His message to us”

A few days later, Mehera and Mani were sitting in Baba’s bedroom. “Baba didn’t leave us any message,” Mehera said regretfully, “any instructions.”

“What will we live for now, when you have gone away?”

 

Bhau remembered the last line Baba dictated to him on 29 January 1969, “What will we live for now, when you have gone away?” and composed a ghazal on it.
