THE BEAUTY OF THE LORD IS INEFFABLE
During a discussion of the upcoming year of silence, one person expressed the concern that Baba, on becoming upset with any person, might let a few words slip from his mouth. But Baba assured everyone present that once he started to keep silence he would not lose control of his temper or utter a word thereafter.
Baba concluded the meeting by singing a poem, which was to be his last song:
As soon as I became conscious of Shyam Sunder
The Beauty of the Lord Krishna
A mustard seed blossomed before my eyes.
Oh, its yellow flowers!
What I saw is indescribable!
Its seed moved the mountain
when it flowered before my eyes.
Afterward, Baba explained the poem: "The blossoming of the mustard seed represents God-Realization; the seed, itself, represents the soul. Hence, when the seed moved the mountain, I became divinely conscious, and simultaneously the soul engulfed the mountain of my ego. The beauty of the Lord is ineffable; yet, it is seen it is experienced."
