IN HAPPY OCCASION OF MEHERA'S BIRTHDAY
Mani S. Irani
The 24th and 25th  were celebrated en famille in happy
occasion of Mehera's birthday and one of our Beloved's ancient
birthdays. All the love that poured in from His Western family
through Christmas greetings in the beautiful cards and cables, as
well as that which was sent in silence, was received and Baba
sends His eternal love to you each.
A Happy BABA-Year to us all, and may we have His grace to love
Him more. I remember Baba saying once that it is not so difficult to
receive His grace, as to recognize it in the form in which it comes
disguised. This little prayer we read in a book:
My soul is like a rusty lock,
Oil it with Thy grace.
And rub it, rub it, rub it, Lord
Until I see Thy Face.
May His love teach us to accept the "rub" with the oil
