“They will have that longing for me, and that is my real darshan.”


When Bhau was with Baba during night watch, Baba would ask about the letters received. One day Bhau asked, “All of the letters seek just one thing — your darshan, and you do not give it!”

Explaining, Baba replied,

“My work is different. It is not my work to travel continuously and hold darshan programs simply to allow people to bow down at my feet. It is not my work to give long discourses, to perform miracles, or to attract crowds to me. I do not come for this. I come for all; I come to awaken all!

“Never before in any age have I given as much darshan to people as I have given during this advent. And still you and others complain! My darshan is something quite distinct.”

He continued to explain:

“You have no idea what I am really doing. The more you stretch a bow, the greater the distance the arrow will fly and the harder it will hit the target. I am in seclusion now, yes, but I am drawing back my bow farther and farther so that when I release the arrow of my love, it will strike deep and wound the hearts of all. The wounds will make them have my darshan continuously. They will have that longing for me, and that is my real darshan.”

Baba concluded:

 “I am working in seclusion to give the world my darshan. It is this darshan that will have meaning for those who love and know me.”
