SPIRITUAL CONTACTS IN PERSON
The crowning incident of the day, however, was a far more important meeting than all the pageantry we saw. On the way to the palace Baba had us get out of the car, cross the road, and walk up to a platform or parapet from which we had a wonderful view of the palace. Baba was very quiet. As usual He was looking around, but not in the direction of the palace, as if expecting to see someone.
A moment later He motioned us all to look to the right, up the lane on the opposite side of the road, leading to the woods. There we saw a half-naked figure. Baba explained to us that he was a mast and the spiritual chargeman of Jaipur. Then at once Baba returned to the bus, and we continued our journey to the palace Baba now in quite a different mood than before, jolly and interested, for His work there was done. Baba said before we started on this trip that He had to make many of these spiritual contacts in person.
