Meher Baba's Fiery Life

and External Activities
by RAMJOO ABDULLA

 

    Continuing this remarkable eyewitness account of the Master's Fiery Life period, from     November, 1952 to April, 1953.

PART THREE: PILGRIMAGE TO KHULDABAD.

 

 

N HIS VISIT to Hamirpur and Delhi, besides attending many private receptions, BABA gave mass darshan at numerous public receptions, proceeded on the first day at each place by the "Service to the Poor" and mast work. Following the departure from Delhi there was a lull in BABA'S activities, during which period BABA left his men for some days until, as prearranged, they all came together at the rest-house in Khuldabad on December 12th.

 

This sleepy little village is situated near the crest of the famous Ellora caves. According to Hindu traditions, in the hoary past the peaceful surroundings are supposed to have been a great center for Rishis and Munees (saints and sages). The Moslems believe that some hundreds of years ago the Avliya (friends of God) descended upon Khuldabad in 1,400 heavenly palanquins.

 

The fact remains that there are more shrines of saints and Masters here than in any other similar village. Homage at the shrines of these spiritual Kings continues to this day, while the neighbouring mausoleums of temporal kings and the tottering tombstones of their courtiers, lie neglected and forgotten.
