conveyed to Gadge Maharaj that he would soon break his silence and give to the world his "Real Darshan," for the world could never derive lasting benefit from taking darshan of his physical body.

 

His spoken Word of Truth would penetrate deep into the heart of the world—it alone could give the world the lasting benefit of his "Real Darshan." Baba then added that the Maharaj should not try to see him in Satara, that this was their last meeting before everything came to pass as was preordained. There was silence in the car and none spoke till the car stopped at the dharmashala, to drop Gadge Maharaj. Both Baba and the Maharaj stepped out of the car. Gadge Maharaj bowed down to Baba and Baba too bowed down to the Maharaj. A group of Gadge Maharaj's devotees and disciples approached Baba, and after all had taken Baba's darshan the car moved off amidst shouts of "Avatar Meher Baba ki jai."

 

Some considerable distance from Gadge Maharaj's dharmashala the car stopped and after each of Baba's lovers was given a farewell pat Baba gave the signal for the car to head straight for Satara.

 


"TAKE MY LIFE"

This Poem Meher Baba has said embodies the whole of the Bhagavad Gita
 

 

 

  Take my life and let it be
  Dedicated, Lord, to Thee.
  Take my hands and let them move
  At the impulse of Thy love!
  Take my moments and my days,
  Let them be spent in constant praise,
  Take my lips and let them be
  Filled with messages from Thee.
  Take my intellect and use,
  Every power as Thou shalt choose.
  Take my heart, it is Thine own,
  It shall be Thy Royal Throne.
  Take my silver and my gold
  Not a mite would I withhold:
  Take my life and make it Thine,
  It shall be no longer mine.
 
—Frances Havergold
