What happened then that made the aged gentleman go to the length of adoring the Holy Master?
He himself mentioned the cause of his conversation. He said to His Holiness: "I never believed in you, but now I do. Day before yesterday I dreamt a beautiful dream. In the dream I saw you with halo around your face. You kindly touched my hands and at once my hands began giving off extremely powerful fragrant odor. The fragrance continued for some time even after I woke from the dream. It was midnight when I woke up, but to assure myself that I was not under any delusion I woke up my son, the brother of Behramji, and asked him whether my hands were not fragrant. He replied in the affirmative and asked me the cause of it, When I narrated the dream to him, he was thunderstruck. From today I am your devotee, 0 Babaji. I shall now never speak against you, but shall inform all my friends about this wonderful experience."
As soon as the Holy Master reached the above village, Mr. K. E. Afseri left him and went to the village of Taft in order to bring the Prem ashram boy Aga Ali (Syed Ali Haji Muhammed) who was and still is staying there with his relatives. Mr. Afseri was successful in his mission, but his relatives also accompanied the boy; and so the poor boy, who is practically a prisoner of his cruel relatives, was allowed by them to sit near and talk with his Beloved for only a few minutes.
From Mubarakha the Holy Master went to the village of Khooramshar, where among others, but unlike others, several Bahais with their local leader came merely to see him. The leader was a proud man and he was determined not to revere and not to allow any of his followers to revere His Holiness. But his pride melted away on merely seeing the lustrous face of the Holy Master. To the surprise of his followers he bowed to His Holiness and asked them to do likewise. After five minutes he asked his followers to kiss the hands of His Holiness and after ten minutes he said to them: "You may, if you like, fall at the feet of Hazrat Meher Baba." Thus the Holy Master's personality works wonders.
When the Divine Babaji returned to the city in the evening, the Yezdians once more took the opportunity of paying their homage to him. Among those who approached him was the leader of Bahais of Shiraz, who had come from his native city to Yezd in an aeroplane, with the express purpose of seeing him. He was so much struck by the Holy Master’s personality that tears trickled down his cheeks. Soon after leaving him, this good and worthy man delivered a lecture before a big crowd, in which he talked what very orthodox Mahometans would call blasphemy, for he went so far as to declare: "If you want to see God, see Hazrat Meher Baba.
