HE DID WHAT BABA TOLD HIM

Adi K. Irani

 
I would like to tell you a small instance when Baba was present. A man had come to Baba, a strange man. Baba asked him, "Will you do one thing I tell you?"

He said, "I shall try to do it."

Then Baba said, "Remember Me three times a day, morning, noon and evening."

"I can't promise. I don't know if I shall be able to remember You three times a day."

So Baba said, "It doesn't matter. Remember Me twice. At the time when you get up in the morning and before going to bed at night; remember Me only twice."

He said, "No, Baba, I can't promise."

So Baba said, "All right, remember Me once a day."

He said, "No, Baba, I can't give you any promise whether I shall succeed or not, whether I shall remember or not; I can't remember you even once a day."

Then Baba said, "All right, don't remember Me every day, but at least remember Me at the time of your death."

The man thought to himself, "If I am not able to remember Him during my lifetime, how will it be possible to remember Him at the time of my death when I will be suffering so much?"

He went on remembering Baba often, every spare moment of his life. He wrote me letters and said, "There is nothing else but Meher Baba for me." So he did what Baba told him and it became so effective that it has become his whole way of life — nothing else but Meher Baba.

And he has become very satisfied and joyful.
