THE TRUE HERO

Mani S. Irani

 
After one Qavvali (pronounced kuh-vaali) program Baba explained the meaning of a song: "My glory is from here to there which has no end, and each one can perceive My glory to one's own capacity. So let Me see to what extent you can see my glory!"

Baba then added: "Ocean contains everything — water, dirt, nectar; and everything dissolves in the ocean. I am the Ocean. Nobody is debarred from coming to Me and helping himself to the endless expanse of Love; but how much of the Ocean you can take with you depends on the receptacle you bring. If it is a cup, you can only take a cupful; if a pail, only a pailful. But once in a long while there comes the true hero, the giant in Love that can gulp the Ocean itself!"
