Becoming is the objective – The danger of “experiences” on the path

Eruch related the experience of Balak Bhagwan, the seventeen-year-old boy from Madhya Pradesh, who was filled with Baba’s light and presence, and saw Baba everywhere and in everything. He imagined himself to be on the fifth plane and was giving darshan and prasad to people. Baba had Eruch write a very firm reply, putting […]

“Do not ask for grace; I will give it at the right time.”

Baba then stated: “Experience is not the Goal; having visions is not the Goal. Union with God is the Goal. In order to attain this Goal, my grace is necessary. For my grace, you should resign to my will. When the climate is cold, it is good to take wine; but if it is […]

Prayers should be from the heart and be natural

After hearing Kenmore recite the prayers in his booming voice, Hoshang asked Kenmore, “Are you praying or fighting with God?” Cowas felt the same way.

“One should call on His mercy from the depths of one’s heart”

Real help vs temporary material relief

Baba also explained the difference between real help and temporary material relief:

When we see beggars on the road suffering from incurable diseases, we feel sorry and wish to do something for them. But this is only a kind of temporary relief. Then how to help? We should help in such a way that […]

“Make others happy but do not seek reward”

God is all purity, all honesty and our love for Him should be so honest as not to brook any compromise at all. So whatever you do to help others, to give them happiness, you must not be conscious of having done so. Then you are safe, they are safe; you feel happy, they […]

Let it go! (Janay-doe)

On another occasion, when there was a quarrel between two women, Baba intervened and stated:

Love and forget. This is the only thing that matters, and it pays. Almost all of you are weak. By weak, I mean taken up with desires. Anger is weakness, pride is weakness, and so […]

Promises given by Master get fulfilled at proper time

Discoursing about how the Master gives and fulfills his promises, Baba explained to them:
