“Baba was very kind to me and to my father”

In this talk given to a group in Washington, D.C., Digambar Gadekar describes his family’s rich and loving history with Meher Baba. Digambar’s father Ramchandra first met Baba in 1924, when He was still speaking. Ramchandra had intended to visit Baba to ask that He cure a medical condition— but when faced with Baba’s love and presence, he asked for God instead! Thus began a multi-decade relationship between Meher Baba and the Gadekar family, from Baba distributing sweets at Digambar’s parents’ wedding, to His arriving unexpectedly at the family house for meals, to His becoming young Digambar’s most beloved playmate.
