Symbols of the world's religions



Meher Baba

[Dr. Abdul Ghani:] Once Baba very good-humoredly remarked, "People coming to see me almost always ask me to pray for them. These simple souls do not know that masters neither bless nor curse anyone. The fulfillment of their worldly desires by approaching a divine personality is in direct proportion to the faith they bring toward him and their prayers are answered by the divine shaktis (powers) active around him.

"A Perfect Master works in the spiritual domain, while the mahatmas (those on the path) can be said to bless, for it is their spoken word that brings about the desired result. When approaching a Perfect Master with the object of deriving material benefit, one should rather request his curse, because such a one's blessing, if at all he gives it in a particular case, is likely to uproot the receiver from his worldly surroundings with a view to making him like the master."
