ELEPHANTS

Ivy Oneita Duce

 
When Meher Baba was asked as to what should be the correct and safest attitude of people towards saints, he very knowingly recalled the significant words of the Persian Poet, Hafiz:

Either do not form friendship with an elephant driver;
Or be prepared to receive his elephant as well.*
