Symbols of the world's religions



Arnavaz N. Dadachanji

On many occasions we observed a child's spontaneous recognition of Baba's divinity. Once at Guruprasad a woman with a year-old baby was seated a few feet in front of Baba. As the child began to crawl out of his mother's lap toward Baba, she reached out to pull him back. Baba stopped the mother with a gesture of His hand, allowing the child to crawl toward His feet.

Twice the child put his head down at Baba's feet and sat up. Then he put his tiny hands on Baba's sadra and, holding tightly to the sadra, pulled himself up, bowing down again. Once more he put his head down on Baba's feet, then crawled back to his mother and sat on her lap.

Baba sat very still as the child made contact with Him. Everyone in the room was silent, every eye on Baba and the baby.
