I WAS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MY ACTIONS

Bili Eaton

 
For some years ... I had begun to have quite a fascination for Baba's feet and still do. They were so beautiful. I also had had some correspondence with Mehera and Mani about this fascination, and we all felt that I should take the very next opportunity to kiss them.

I had missed my opportunity in 1958 when Baba visited the West because of shyness and so many people being present. But I thought this was the time and I decided to take the bull by the horns, other people being around or not. I also had a message from someone to give to Baba.

When I was ushered in to Baba, I gave Him the message and then kissed His right toe and said, "Baba, that was for Mehera." Then, with great restraint, I gently bit His left toe and said, "And this is for Mani." Needless to say, Baba looked rather astonished.

I had no intention of biting His toe, and I don't know what came over me, but I guess I have a savage instinct. I suppose I wasn't called Baba's cat for nothing. Anyway, when I was with Baba, I was not responsible for my actions.
