Baba had once said to one of His devotees, “It was nothing short of weakness on My part as Krishna to have convinced Arjuna by exposing My identity as Paramatma through Vishwaruup Darshan." In this incarnation too Baba has revealed Himself to many as Rama, Krishna, Jesus, etc. (Also see Wayfarers, "Those who bear witness.") Who will calculate then His moments of weakness in this incarnation? One thinks of the days of Kauravas and Pandavas when He brought about the epic battle of Mahabharata, by dint of a broken promise apparently of no consequence. But in this incarnation, such broken promises have soared up to the limit. No one can dream what He is going to do with the world this time.
My prayer at His Divine Feet is that I may be able to hold on to His Daaman till the end of my life.
"To the Editor of the Awakener:
"The subject matter which I wish to relate here concerns an incomplete account of a conversation between Beloved Baba and myself, in The Awakener Volume VI No. 4 at Page 46 beginning with line 3.
"I spoke to Baba about someone, who, in order to protect his family and himself from destruction foretold by Baba, wanted to establish a home way up in the mountains and stock it with the necessary food.
"Baba interrupted me and said; 'No place will be safe, not even the top of the Himalayas; only by the Grace of God can one be saved.' So I asked Baba if this destruction would be man-made or a natural one, then Baba answered: ‘It will be both.'
