BEFITTING THE DURBAR OF GOD

Keshava Narayan Nigam

Chief Worker in Hamirpur District

 
The glory of these Darshan Programmes was even more extraordinary than that of the previous ones. Magnificent arrangements were made everywhere for Baba's Darshan programmes, and we saw the most lovely spectacles on that occasion.

On the 25th of February 1954, the 60th Birthday of Avatar Meher Baba was celebrated in Tadepalligudem with great jubilation and magnificence. It was a uniquely joyous day. Baba was taken in a procession on a motor car and driven through the town. In the night Bharat Natyam dance was arranged, and it presented an indescribable spectacle befitting the Durbar of God.

I had seen such a beautiful performance only in the presence of Avatar Meher Baba, and I can never forget it. In the end of February 1954 while going from Kovvur to Rajahmundry Baba crossed the Godavari river by motor car and stopping the car in the middle way alighted from it and washed His face and hands in its waters, thus giving a fresh and new holiness to Godavari.
