FIT INSTRUMENT FOR HIS WORK
Pratap G. Ahir
It is said he acquired this capacity by his effort to measure the depth of Meher Baba's knowledge in the early years of his association with him before he could accept a position of a disciple to one who was his childhood friend.
He was a voracious reader and read deeply on Sufi, Vedantic and Christian mystic schools of thought. It was his practice in those early days to read such intricate subjects on religion and spirituality and then to put difficult questions to Meher Baba knowing well Merwan, his friend, had never read such books. But to his surprise he found Meher Baba answered all his questions with ease.
Later on, Dr. Ghani realised that it was the Master who was training him as a fit instrument for his work. We are thus able to read many articles written by Dr. Ghani in Meher Gazette and Meher Baba Journal.
