"This reminds Me, when I drop this body, which will come about through violence, not one will be near Me at that time—none of My lovers, none of My Mandali—only those who would kill this body. The circumstances will be so created that in the confusion Baba will not find one near Him. Only afterward they will flock around. It is staring Me in the face. It might happen before the end of the year—My breaking the silence, dropping the body, and all this. In the meeting, I will speak at length about this."

He was invited to India by the Japanese Ambassador, to whom he is related, and he seized this opportunity to make contact with Baba.
