MARCH 6, 1923 – THE GREATEST PENANCE ONE CAN DO IS TO DANCE TO EVERY WHIM OF THE MASTER.
At times, after the evening meal, the mandali would engage in writing poetry but their poems usually had no meter or rhyme. On March 6th, (1923) while Baba was in the middle of composing a humorous poem he suddenly said, “I feel like using the toilet, but I don’t wish to leave the subject incomplete.” He then asked if anyone would stay by his side in the bathroom in order to write down his composition. Ghani and Adi agreed. Baba sat in the middle stall, Adi took the one to his right, and Ghani the one to his left. Ramjoo, Faredoon and Asthma stood outside. For half an hour, the muse of poetic inspiration was wooed in this seemingly unpoetic atmosphere!
