20121117 – Blessings of a Perfect Master


Once a stranger came to Manzil-e-Meem and narrated his long list of problems to Meher Baba. He begged Baba to bless him, and bowed to the Master. After he had gone, Baba remarked:

People coming to see me almost always ask me to bless them. These simple souls do not know that Masters really neither bless nor curse anyone. The fulfillment of their worldly desires gained by approaching a divine personality is in direct proportion to the faith they manifest toward him, and their prayers are answered by the divine powers active around him.

A Perfect Master works in the spiritual domain on a universal level. Those on the planes work on a limited personal level and it is their spoken word that brings about the desired result when they bless. When approaching a Perfect Master with the object of deriving material benefit, one would be better off requesting him for his curse, because a blessing from him – if at all he gives it –  is likely to uproot one’s sanskaric links from his worldly surroundings with a view to making him one like the Master.
