Symbols of the world's religions



Arnavaz N. Dadachanji

Sometimes Baba surprised us by saying something unimaginable. One day He was sitting with a group around Him, when a black ant crawled onto His hand and then onto the sleeve of His white sadra.

Everyone sitting nearby noticed the ant, and Eruch got up to flick it off, but Baba stopped him. Pausing, He gestured, "This ant will take human birth."

For me this was a time of seeing Baba as Creator, the One holding infinite power — not just to alter the length of a single human life, but to allow an ant to bypass millions of life forms and be born as a human. I was stunned.
