“Cults and religions have no importance – Love holds the key”

Just a week before, on 9 May, Baba had told another person:

Many people of the world say that God is. Every religion and religious book states that God is. God IS. People believe it. You, too, believe in His existence. Despite all this, only rarely does one resolve firmly to see God. Rare […]

“It is good to be frank and honest in all matters, whether most ordinary or important”

On 13 May 1960, Baba asked one of his devotees, “Have you read Stay With God?” The woman had a poor excuse of “no time.” Baba asked, “Is that really so? Are you being honest in your answer? Hypocrisy is the worst thing, and in every walk of life it consciously or unconsciously persists.”

“Wants, desires, thoughts are all so compressed within you that they leave no room for God the Beloved”

The director [D. D. Kashyap] told Baba part of the story of his recent film, Maya, about a wealthy boy who falls in love with a poor slum girl and uses his wealth and influence to help the poor. Baba commented:

If you read God Speaks you will have a wider view of the […]

“To receive love, you have to lose everything”

During darshan the next day, Sunday, 8 May, a visitor requested that Baba give him his blessings. Baba replied:

It is very easy for me to give blessings, because you are eager to receive them. The necessary receptivity is already there. But it is not so with love, because no one really wants to […]

Intense longing to see God is only possible by the grace of Perfect Master

 

At this point, Kashyap quoted some lines referring to the intense longing for union with God. Baba liked them and remarked:

It is a nice quotation, but how does one create such longing in his heart? That is the difficulty. One must feel from the core of one’s heart that it is impossible […]

One should not succumb to worries

One day (23 May) D. D. Kashyap, 50, a Bombay film director, came for darshan. Baba remarked to him, “I know everything. Even then, I want you to introduce yourself to me. All this is to meet you on your level.

I am happy to see you. Are you happy? Have you any worry?”

To see God you carry your life in the palm of your hand

 

One day after bhajans were sung, Baba remarked to the singers and musicians:

It is mentioned without any exception in all the holy books that God exists. The mystics, saints and the God-realized Masters from all faiths confirm that God Alone Is. So it clearly follows that God can be seen, and you […]

“They are poor, but their hearts are clean”

 

The following day, Baba again spent time with his Hamirpur lovers. They were all poor, but had made the long and costly journey nonetheless. Baba remarked:

I like their love! They don’t need discourses and explanations. They come with love and for love. To them, my embrace and darshan are sufficient. I do […]

“The untold Infinite Treasure is within you”

On Friday, 29 April 1960, about 50 lovers and devotees arrived from Calcutta, Jabalpur and Hamirpur. To a group from Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, Baba said:

The untold Infinite Treasure is within you. The only problem is that you do not seek it within you. You look without. This has been your habit […]

“Love answers all questions, for it ignores questioning itself”

[Someone interrupted Baba with a question.] When you are in my company, be fully attentive and receptive to what I dictate without questioning. Love me and be silent. Pampering of the intellect brings forth innumerable questions. All these questions of the mind can be answered, but that is hardly spiritually indispensable. Mere intellectual explanations […]
