“He is not a dull Avatar”

In this spirited talk, Irwin Luck discusses the time he spent with Baba, but his recollection is not a plain recounting; it is interspersed with a lifelong reflection on what it is to be with Baba and belong to Him. Irwin first went to Baba because he wanted to know God and Baba indulged his request and changed the inner fabric of his being. His inner voice intuitively led him to New York from where he finally ended up in India. Tackling questions on metaphysics and beyond, Irwin describes Baba’s work in our lives through the effacement of the mind and finally through love—the only way to God.
