BABA GAVE THE FINAL KILLING BLOW
Later in the evening after dinner, he remarked about snakes, "Unless a snake is killed by a human being, it remains always a snake. Never leave a snake wounded, as it takes so long to die. Once wounded, a snake will always remain near you to be killed outright."
On another occasion, the men killed a snake at Lower Meherabad,
and Padri brought it to Baba who crushed its head. To Padri, he
explained, "In evolution, the snake form is like an entangled rope
which you cannot undo or unwind. However, if it is killed by a human
being the knot untangles itself and the soul is free to continue on
its way through evolution.
