done. Arjuna was constantly with Krishna and he took Lord Krishna only as an intimate friend. During the battle of Mahabharata, when Arjuna declined to fight, in spite of being asked by Krishna to do so, Krishna showed Arjuna his Virat Swaruup (Universal Body). This Krishna should not have done. Buddha explained to his lovers that the goal of life was Nirvana; but he did not reveal and explain to his lovers the states beyond Nirvana, such as: Majzoobiyat. Sulukiyat and Qutubiyat, which follow Nirvana. This was Buddha's weakness. Christ should not have said, when he was crucified, "Oh Father, why hast thou forsaken me." Lastly, Mohammed did not reveal to the people that he was God in human form. He said that he was a Messenger of God. He should have said that he was the God-Man, at least just before his death. Baba jokingly continued, "I have one weakness too; but I shall reveal this when I return after 700 years!"

 

Baba continued, "In the state of Nirvana (Fana), initially there is the experience of Infinite Vacuum. This is followed instantaneously by the experience of Infinite Bliss or of the Fana Fillah state.

Many lovers had to sit on the verandah. Baba informed all that those who would embrace him today must not do so on every Sunday should they happen to come again on weekends for his darshan.

 

He again switched over to the talk of the 'weakness' of the past Avatars and said that his weakness would be revealed by him after 700 years. He said, "I have the continuous experience that I am the singer, the song, the musical instruments and also the audience." He continued, "You cannot imagine what Infinite Bliss means. The greatest joy man feels is when he lives happily with his beloved. That joy is only the 7th shadow of Real Bliss. I am Real, but my shadow is not real—it has no value. The value of my 7th shadow would be absolutely nil. Similarly, worldly joy which is the 7th
