Symbols of the world's religions



Eruch Jessawala

Guruprasad, Poona, 1959 — A social worker who had travelled extensively in her work, came to visit Meher Baba on January 17 and He said to her, "You say you have come to see Me, but if you were really to see Me as I am, all else that you see would become as nought. You have visited many places and in a way that is good but tell Me, out of all the places you have visited, which did you like best?"

"The Himalaya," she replied, "I love the Himalayas for their grandeur and spiritual atmosphere."

"Yes," Baba said, "there are and have been rishis and munis in the Himalayas throughout the ages, but even they have not seen Me as I really am. You like the Himalayas for the spiritual atmosphere, but what about that place within you where God dwells? Don't you love that place best? Once you pay it a visit, all other places howsoever beautiful and glorious and charged with spiritual atmosphere, will hold no charm for you. You will then dwell within your Self and will cease seeing other places and will see only Me as I really am."
