he would feed this boy or that boy, or all the boys who were around him and who had much love.
Most of them he would try to feed, and they would refuse to eat. He had given them love. One was Sayyed Ali and another one was Lobaji. One was Ramo. There was another one called Gamu, who just before dying, Baba took to God, and made him one with Himself. And Baba would tell us that He would make us God: "I will make the King of kings out of you." Another one was Jens, who was a Christian, and just before he passed away also, Baba made him one with himself. There were many like him. Another one was Hormuzian. He had come first to take away his two brothers from Baba. He was a Ba’hai. But finally, he ended up staying with Baba for a month. And then he left everything, and he lost everything, and before he passed away, Baba made him one with himself also. We were in Bijapur before he passed away, and Baba told his brother, "I have made your brother one with myself."
It happened that one day Baba had a Koran, and he threw it at the ground, like he was angry. Baba said that that day somebody in the court of Baghdad had heard Baba’s name, and had passed away from love. Baba said: "I have made him one with Myself, I have brought him to Myself." Baba said that in the court of Baghdad there was this man who had heard of his name, and that this created such a strong love in his heart, Baba made him one with himself.
There was another man with Baba then called Kaikhuru Dastur who knew English very, very well. He also, in the later days, gained a lot of love for Baba, and he would come, and would rub and hit his forehead, in front of Baba's room. Baba had given me a piece of sandalwood, to rub it with some water on the stone, and then rub that on this man's forehead. There was also Gulmai, Adi's mother, who would come to Baba's room and would sit in front of it, and would cover her head with a thin cloth. There was also this Dastur. And I would laugh. I would tell this man who would hit his forehead on the ground, "Hit it harder and harder if you want God. Now is the time to hit!" And I would continue to rub my sandalwood over the stone and make the potion for his forehead.
When I first started this, I didn't have faith that Baba was God himself. Baba knew that I did not have this faith, and he gave me this formula to repeat: "Yah Yezdan Ahuramazd!" I should repeat this and this should be my mantra, everyday for two hours from five to seven in the morning. Finally, I recognized Baba, that He Himself is everything, and that He Himself is all.
When we were in Nasik, there was a boy called Minoo who was a Parsi boy. He had a bus line in Bijapur, and he invited Baba to go there. About 50 of us elder Baba lovers went with Baba, and there in Bijapur, every day singers would come to sing for Baba. They would come to sing for money, but Baba told them: "Nobody's going to pay you here. If you want to come and sing, O.K., but otherwise you shouldn't come." You should sing without wanting money. All the singers would come there, because they found out that 300 years ago Baba had been Shivaji in the period of Ramdas and Tukaram. One day they put on a play of Shivaji for Baba. It lasted till two or three in the morning.
Then there was the sister of the man who owned that land. She was mentally ill. It was this woman who had invited Baba to her brother's house. There many people from Kohlapur came, including a boy who could imitate the sound of all animals. It was very new for us in those days. He would imitate every animal in front of Baba. And there was also a saint who had come to see Baba with 500 of his followers. This saint was there a month with Baba, but he left just before Baba left Bijapur. When at the train station he asked Manuchehr to tell Baba, "Give my love, who am not more than a dog, to Beloved Baba." See, here a saint is calling himself a dog in front of Baba, he's saying: Give my love, who am no more than a dog, to Baba.
When Baba gave me this meditation to do, I never expected anything, I never wanted anything from it. Baba himself would give me love and would keep me warm in his love.
