In the first meeting Baba asked all the Poona workers to stand up and inquired about those absent who were not called for the meeting. Then he instructed that those who were not called be taken over to Guru Prasad at 2 o'clock afternoon of to same day. Immediately after an embrace from Baba they should leave.

 

About the injuries sustained by himself, Baba said. "The fractured bone is getting well set. In the surgeon' opinion—who happens to be a Colonel—my progress is unexpectedly rapid. He told me that even a stout, young soldier would have required at least six months to recover to this extent!" One of the lovers requested Baba to take care of his body. Baba replied, "I have to come again and again in flesh and blood to beat the sufferings of humanity."

 

After preliminary "talk" the work started for which the meeting was convened. Baba said, "I want to tell you one important thing which each of you must remember well. It is a fact that I am the Lord of the Universe. I am omnipresent. Now the time is fast approaching and I clearly see the 'dark cloud' hovering. I see its picture. By this I am not referring to the recent motor accident that has already come to pass. The 'humiliation' that I was referring to since a long time is within sight. During that phase of my life there is every possibility that I may slip out of your hands.

 

"Now let me first explain what I mean by 'humiliation.' Suppose you are loved by someone very dearly for several years and, one day when you happen to meet him, he suddenly begins to abuse you, kick you and spit on your face; in the context of your previous relations with him, your plight becomes an example of humiliation. In the same way, if some persons, who have previously adored me and raised me up to the skies in adoration for years, suddenly turn against me and express extreme disdain for me by throwing me in filth, it will be another example of humiliation.

 

"I will also give you an example of circumstances under which this kind of thing can happen. You have been worshipping me for so many years. Suppose you suddenly find me eating rubbish and roaming about naked in the streets, behaving like a mad person; what will be your reaction to this behavior of mine? I do not want any one of you to think or say that Baba is going to become mad! On the contrary, I have come to make the whole world mad after God and Truth!
