BABA PREPARED HIMSELF TO GO BEGGING
Today, the 24th of November, is a very significant day
I ask the most merciful God to forgive me
I ask God to give full strength to me
I forgive you, my companions, and ask you all to forgive me,
While the prayer was being read, Baba became very serene and composed. His face was aglow with love, mercy and forgiveness. He was at that moment like "the Judge on the judgment seat, enveloping the whole world in his embrace." In the eternal living present, being the judge, culprit and crime all in one, he was forgiving himself.
After asking Ghani to translate the prayer into Hindi for those who did not know English, Baba made Ghani read it over and over again a number of times. All through, he listened to the prayer in rapt attention. Then, making a gesture of forgiveness, the ceremony came to an end, and Baba prepared himself to go begging.
