ONE FOOT IN THIS ROOM AND ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE
A. K. Hajra
In death, as in life, he wore a tender look, and as his beloved Master sat by his body, it seemed as though Vishnu had drifted into a gentle sleep. Baba sat thus for over an hour and to Vishnu's brother-disciples gathered around, Baba said, "I have never before sat by any of my mandali as I am doing today by Vishnu. He is indeed most fortunate."
We later recalled Baba's remark to the Mandali that morning "Vishnu has one foot in this room and one foot in the grave." The ashes of this very loving and loved companion of ours would rest in Meherabad the place dearest to him.
