HE WAS BLESSING MANKIND
C. B. Purdom
When we abuse another we create "sanskaras" for ourselves, that is to say, psychic impressions the abuse falls upon our own heads. When Upasni Maharaj abused Baba, he was attracting to himself for the purpose of dissolving them Baba's own sanskaras, until Baba had himself reached perfection; thereafter, in such abuse, he was blessing mankind.
When, therefore, Baba rebukes a disciple it is for the sake of protecting him, if he is in danger, or of attracting to himself the sanskaras, or impressions, that are affecting the disciple and so freeing him from them. To be abused by a Master is a blessings.
