from the Qutub and he will give it to you, but be wise and ask him for God, because he is the only one who can give Union with God.'
“This side is about the God-man, the one who is expected. When he comes all are blind to it. None can know about it. But he brings with him a thick cloud of compassion that bursts and gives a shower of compassion. All expect him—men, wind, clouds, trees, all—but none sees him, all are blind to him, but he showers his love and compassion on all beings and things.”
At one o'clock about 20 women assembled in the living room of Baba's house: They were those whom Mehera had known or corresponded with. She had sent many little presents and had told Baba for whom each present was intended. He said he had nodded his head at the time but now he could not recall! He could solve the universal problems but not this problem. Eruch said: “This morning Baba had all the presents spread on his bed. He looked like a shopkeeper!"
Baba was sitting in his armchair and the women sat on the floor and the chairs in a circle around him. Then he said, in his love, first came Mehera, and then Mani. Mehera was his Beloved. Mani was his true sister in work. She loves Baba and works for him from morning to late at night with correspondence and other details, even though she is not in good health at present. She loves him and has surrendered to him 100 per cent.
Baba then handed each her first present from Mehera—picture made, at Mehera’s request, by Behram, Baba's brother, who is a photographer. It was a double vignette of Mehera when a very young girl and of Baba as a young boy. Baba said that Mehera was 17 when she first came to him.
Then Baba went into his bedroom and called each one separately to receive her gift from Mehera, given by his own hands. Later he returned to the living-room, and passed round a small box containing a lock of his hair at the time he was a young man. It was auburn, curly hair. He also gave for all his Center and Groups, beautiful large colored photos made by Behram. He gave us each some of his hair from another lock, a very special prasad of his grace. He told us to leave directly after we received the hair.
As this was a rainy day, the second group came to Baba’s house dressed in raincoats, rubber boots, etc. When they arrived, they found Baba remarking about the lapse of time between the two groups.
