INDIAN MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT LOVE

Meher Baba

 
"Let us have music. Indian music is all about love. Some of you may not like it, but I will explain it. I never question about God. I put questions to you about your health and food, but never about God, for I know I am God."

Francis says he has a million questions. Baba smiles. After the first record, Baba says: "This is a wonderful state of love. The lover is not concerned with the planes and the different states of consciousness. He is only concerned with God and how to love God. He arrives at a stage when this love fills his world, and the pangs of separation are so unbearable that he says, 'I now want to forget You; but the more I try the more I remember you.' This torture is unbearable."

Baba proceeded to give interpretations of the words sung in the different records:

"Oh my beloved God, only he is fortunate and big-hearted who cannot avoid shedding tears in his love. Oh you, who are training to be lovers of God, beware; you will be shown innumerable supernatural sights of different kinds; beware: only love God and do not be ensnared by these visions and powers.

"Oh you, who love to talk of love, do you know the difficulties and hardships facing you? The Master tests you at every step on the Path of Love."
