Raja Muhammad, in a clear low voice, read the prayer. Baba then explained:
I may be good or bad, but if you take me to be the Avatar, just obey me. If you have the slightest doubt about my Avatarhood, then your homage to me, garlanding and reverence will not only be a symbol of sheer hypocrisy, but will land you in a deep pit! This is not the first time I give you this warning; I have been giving it over the ages. What is the meaning of “Leave all and follow me?” It is to obey me!
