I was going to help produce Baba’s spiritual movie, with Gabriel Pascal to direct it, and Francis Lederer and Tulio Caramanti to act in it. It was composed by Baba Himself, and would have awakened the world from their dreams and illusions.

 

I spent the fullest, happiest days with Baba in Hollywood, visiting the studios and the famous stars, mixing with them freely and lovingly as if they all belonged to Baba eternally. Baba had planned all this for His work.

 

One day some of them came to see Baba but unfortunately He was in seclusion that day and would not see anybody. The visitors were sad and disheartened to hear He would not see them. I asked Baba, "Please embrace them and bless them and let them sit near You. Their lives are so unnatural, like dream into dream, illusion into illusion. They are like frogs in the well of illusion, crawling the walls to get out, but falling down again, and again. It's up to you, Baba, to pick them out of the well and bring them into the open to feel and realize your divinity, to get awakened from all the mess of illusion." Baba, the Ocean of Love and mercy, met them; they left with His Love shining in their faces and hearts.

 

Once, I was in the Waldorf Hotel in New York along with a Baba lover, on the 34th floor. Nearby, about 200 men and women were enjoying a gay party in a big hall, dancing, singing, enjoying the delicious food. I had an urge to talk to them about Baba.

But supposing at this moment a bomb falls here or an earthquake takes place. In a split second you became ash. The ash will never know it was enjoying life, happiness, friends . . . If you know this can happen any day, any moment, why miss the opportunity, while you still have the body God has given you, to love God, to love Baba, to come closer to Him and to realize that life is beyond all this?

 

"Every second you have the body, as a medium to realize God; take that second as if it were a hundred years. All the delicious food you enjoyed so much becomes shit the next morning because it is all illusion."

 

“Everyone listened to me in dead silence, then cheered me and thanked me for the beneficial talk and advice. They requested that I come the next day for more talks but I did not go back.

 

A few years ago, Irwin and Edward Luck visited India to tape and film Baba lovers. They filmed and taped myself and my younger brother, Behram, reminiscing on our
