(Nov. 1955) Messages, discourses, worship, devotional music will not make anyone reach the Goal. They have no value in themselves. What is wanted is jigar – heart, courage. As Hafiz says:
“He who does not lose his life
in love for God will not find it.”
What is the meaning of laying down one’s life? Soldiers by the millions lose their life in battle; others by committing suicide. But this is not what is meant. Here the meaning is that one has to carry out the wish of the Master and die at every step! I have explained about obedience and love to and for me. If followed implicitly, that would really make you lose yourselves in me.

As we approach the fifty-first Amartithi of Beloved Avatar Meher Baba which falls on Friday, January 31, 2020, we, at the Avatar Meher Baba Bombay Centre, Mumbai, intend to bring alive the memory of the last days of Beloved Baba’s ministry on earth through sharing of excerpts from a splendid book, “Meher Baba’s Last Sahavas” written by Dr. Hoshang P. Bharuch. It will be done in twelve parts starting tomorrow – January 20, 2020.
Although this has been repeated many times before, some Baba lovers have expressed their wish to re-visit these episodes. Besides, there are many new lovers who have joined in since then.
In Beloved Baba’s love and service,
Cyrus M. Khambata
