One day, Baba (May 1960) asked Professor Abdul Karim what he had eaten for breakfast and lunch. The professor enumerated a long list of items, and Baba remarked, “A delicious breakfast and lunch indeed. Now you must be feeling satisfied and happy. You have tasted so many things, but you have not tasted me! You may eat as many eatables as you like and drink as much of whatever you want, but the satisfaction you derive from that is only short-lived.
“The real enjoyment lies when a drop gulps the Ocean! One should aspire for such a drink! What can make this possible? Continual wholehearted remembrance of God. The alternative is my grace.
“This is not a matter of just whitewashing the mind, but the mind itself has to be washed away – annihilated. Love alone can accomplish this.”
