Symbols of the world's religions



Bhau Kalchuri

Meher Baba seldom celebrated Christian holidays, but for Christmas the school was closed on December 25th [1928]. Meredith Starr came to visit Baba at noon. According to Baba's wish, no religious formalities were observed. Baba explained to Starr, "On all four sides, in every corner of the globe, religious precepts and ceremonies prevail. Were we to follow the same old sham and show here, then what would be the difference between us and the world?

"Here, to obey me is the best religious act you can perform, and by doing so you will free yourself from all the bondages of the customs and rites of religion."
