Symbols of the world's religions

That afternoon Baba called the Sufi group together. He then reiterated how we must hang on to his daaman and how difficult it would be. He illustrated:

If six cobras came into this room suddenly from out there, would you just sit still here with me? No, you would be flying out the doors and windows as fast as you could in sheer panic. You would forget all about Baba. Peter denied me when I was Jesus.

The dark cloud of which I have been talking is very, very near. It will happen suddenly, from an unexpected angle, just like I have mentioned the sudden onrush of the cobras — you will not expect it from such an angle, and you will feel justified in leaving me. Each will be tried by his psychological weakness, but try to hang on.
