Memories of the Master
. . . from those who Met Him
THE experience of meeting a Spiritually Perfect Master is no doubt the profoundest one in our lives, one whose meaning and quality are impossible to put into words . . . BABA'S Silence, too, with its whole implicit transcendence of words, and the intellect which relies on them, impresses our own hearts with silence. Yet, being human, we try to communicate and express what meeting MEHER BABA has been like for each of us. Below are a few examples, culled from all over the world from those who met the Master:
"When I first met him, BABA said to me, "Things that are real, are given and received in silence."
A woman was introduced to BABA as the greatest marksman of her day. BABA smiled as he dictated on his alphabet board, "I, too, am a great marksman. I shoot hearts with my Arrows of Divine Love."
"One night, when we were all sitting with BABA, he turned to us who had just met him, and said, writing with his own finger across his heart, "Inscribe these words on your heart. Nothing is real but GOD. Nothing matters but Love for GOD." We felt these words actually being written on our hearts as the Master spoke . . . ”
Months after her first meeting with BABA, one said, "I feel as if BABA had given me a present, and I am only now beginning to open it."
A man who saw the Master for the first time in his wheelchair, with his leg in a cast and his broken arm, asked BABA, "Must it be, BABA?" and BABA answered, "So it was, so it is, so it always will be." One recalls BABA said in Myrtle Beach in May, 1952, just before his accident, "Most persons suffer because of their 'karma.' A few suffer for others. Masters suffer for the whole Universe."
“For one who was privileged to stand near BABA during so many interviews, it seemed as if he were saying one word only, 'Love . . . Love . . . Love . . .' so often did he use this word. There was a deep psychic impression of water running, of a huge fountain pouring down, down, nothing but Love . . . on everything, on everyone, rich or poor, intellectual or non-
