Symbols of the world's religions



Adele Wolkin

Once, in the evening, Baba said, "I want a joke or a religious story." And I didn't know of any jokes, so I said, "Well, why did Peter betray Jesus three times? And it was predicted. Jesus said, "Before the cock crows three times, you will have denied me three times." That was what happened.

Baba said, "Peter loved me the most." You see how Baba makes everything into something wonderfully positive. He always says that I want you to be happy. And he makes anything that has the slightest negativity converted. Baba said, "Peter loved me the most. And what he did, he had to do."

And then Delia [DeLeon] said, "But Baba, what about Judas?" Baba had already, in India, given them a lot of information about the story of the Christ, but she did bring that up. She may not have been clear about it.

Baba said, "Judas served me the best. What he did no one else could do, so he served me the best. He was one of the God-realized disciples."

At that point, everyone started wondering about this and that, and about the suicide of Judas. Baba said Judas did what he did under a veil — he couldn't have done it otherwise — whereas Peter did it consciously.

You can find so many answers in Baba's explanations, such as Moses was not an Avatar, he was on the sixth plane (Baba told them all this), but Abraham was an Avatar.
