Bowing to Baba’s will versus Submitting to Baba’s Will

Meanwhile in Karachi, the fourteen-year-old son of Adi and Dolly Arjani, named Faredoon, suffered a fatal accident on 23 July 1968 after he fell from the first floor terrace of their bungalow. Soon after Baba was informed of this and he sent a telegram on 23 July 1968: “Those who love me never die, they live in me eternally. No one comes and no one goes, and none knows happiness or woes!”

He also sent this second telegram to the Arjani family: “Faredoon has come to me, his final resting place. Faredoon is supremely happy. Therefore, you and Dolly and family keep happy in my love and do not let anything come between you and me in this very important period of my Avataric advent.”

Some days later, Eruch read Hoshang Dadachanji’s letter to Baba, in which he mentioned this tragedy: “May our Beloved Baba give [the Arjani family] the strength to bow down to his will.”

Baba commented: “The one who knows how to bow down to my will must necessarily be a strong man. A man needs strength to bow to my will, whereas a weak person submits to my will. And the person who neither bows down nor submits to my divine will under all conditions of life is no man at all!”, p5340
