(June 1958) When Baba returned to India from the West, Sohrabji Siganporia was not present at the airport to receive him. He was in Kashmir at the time. Baba called him to Poona and asked, “Did you enjoy Kashmir?”
“Very much, Baba,” he said.
“Can you visualize all the sights you saw in Kashmir here now?”
“Nothing is lasting,” Baba emphasized to him, “everything is ephemeral. The enjoyment you had in Kashmir, you do not have here because it was not permanent; it was transitory. God alone is eternal; all else is perishable. So keep me always in your thoughts and in the future don’t miss such an opportunity again.”

(Baba had nominated Sorabji to be the President of the Avatar Meher Baba Bombay Centre which was subsequently opened on 25th February 1962, Baba’s 68th Birthday).
