see Him, I started to get a little shaky. I peeked in and He spotted me, called me in and embraced me. He's very affectionate with all His people. The way He received me left an impression I won't forget. He reminds me of some one with a puppy dog. He makes you feel very good. It's that way with all the people there . . . you don't realize it at the time, but it's like one big family. Everyone is very close to one another, and that struck me, because this is the way I always felt people should be. Over there I saw it for the first time.

 

Baba told me that He wanted me to be there every morning at 7:30 and stay there all day with Him until 5 (except for lunch). This continued for about eleven days, right up till the time I left. In fact I saw Baba only yesterday morning. He wants me to tell everyone that He is sending His love to them. This is to Adele and Filis and the entire group.

Nobody has to tell you when you're feeling; just like when you're hearing, you know that you're hearing. Well it's the same thing with feelings,—and Baba is constantly giving. He has the kind of smile that's very contagious—He smiles, and everybody in the place beams. If He stops smiling, everybody is sort of let down. He gives His Love very much.

 

While I was there He gave quite a few darshans. One Sunday He gave darshan to 10,000 people, maybe more. They were waiting in line all the way up to the gate. All the time He was giving darshan, there was music being played; it was very melodic. I used to think that Indian music didn't have any melody, but this was very beautiful and had a sad quality.
