TO KEEP SILENCE IN THE COMPANY OF THE RESIDENTS OF MEHERAZAD
Arnavaz N. Dadachanji
At the end of forty days Baba sent for all the mandali at Meherabad and Ahmednagar to be in Meherazad to break their silence when He came out of seclusion on 1st August . We all gathered near the Blue Bus, where Baba had four of the mandali recite prayers from the Zoroastrian, Hindu, Muslim and Christian religions, and then we all broke our silence by saying "Amen" in our own languages.
After the prayers we women went with Baba to the main bungalow. The month of observing silence had held many beautiful moments for me, including the moment it ended. That whole day I felt joyful, and when I walked I felt as though I were floating above the ground.
