“If you can love Me, love God, your love will make you know Me. If you can make others happy through your love without seeking your own happiness, you can free yourself from this bondage. You can then find Me as I really am. No sooner do you get that Experience, than you feel liberated and experience infinite bliss."
Though it does not appear on the tape of this afternoon's discourse, someone asked Baba who were the five Perfect Masters of the Age, and Baba named them: Sai Baba, Upasni Maharaj, Hazrat Babajan, Narayan Maharaj, and Tajuddin Baba.
With all the group at His heels like a pack of sparrows, Baba walked as rapidly as ever back to the main Center. The children were all in the boat house, waiting to go out on the lake in the black Venetian gondola. Baba entered the boat house and fondled each child lovingly. Then we all stood close to the shore watching with Baba as the gondolier took the children in groups for their ride. Baba asked one little boy if he could row and he said yes.
Next, Baba, mounting the brick steps again, sat down on the white wood bench at the cliff's edge and started to play with us all, tossing sweets out into the crowd as prasad. The sweets gave out and Kitty ran for more. How happy Baba looked, how eager each one was to "catch" the divine gift! How Baba enjoyed His "trick" throws and the unexpected catches! With what a loving smile He dropped a candy into the open palms of the blind among us! A little baby, perched on his father's shoulder, kept lisping "Dat’s Baba! Dat's Baba!" as if we all might forget. A young boy, disturbed by inner problems, came over and knelt before the Master, who gave him His healing embrace of love, so marvelous to watch . . .a waterfall of grace!
Soon it was 6:30 and time for Baba to return to His own house, for work not in our realm.
