Baba told the mandali that he will see whether he will break the sahavas here and also cancel sahavas in Australia and go straight back to India. If he decides to continue the sahavas here he will also go to Australia and give sahavas there.

It rests with you to draw as much love as possible out of the Ocean. It does not rest with Me to explain to you how you should love me. Does a husband or a wife explain to one another how to love? One thing is certain; I want to give you my love. It depends on each of you to receive it. The easy way to receive it is to forget your home, family and all worldly affairs, when you are here, and be receptive to my
