To touch the hearts

On Saturday, 17 May 1952, an open-house darshan program was held in the Barn from 7:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. and again from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M.  Almost 700 people gathered, many from the small town of Myrtle Beach and others from distant places. Elizabeth was sitting on Baba’s right. Baba had instructed that each visitor enter individually, meet him, touch his hand and pass on out of the Barn.

At one point, Elizabeth asked, “How can you help them when they pass by so quickly?”

Baba answered, “If they linger longer, the mind begins to work, and I want to touch the heart.”

Filis Frederick, who was standing at one of the entrances to the Barn handing out a printed message of Baba’s about his silence, miracles, et cetera, recalled: “After meeting Baba, many were weeping, dazed, unaware of their surroundings.”, p3082
