“Obey Me, whatever I say”
Faredoon Driver joined Baba at Manzil-e-Meem at the age of 18. He was later given the name “Padri” by Baba because of his lanky, priestlike stature. One of the “Four Pillars of Meherabad,” Padri remained on at Meherabad after Baba dropped the body, maintaining the ashram, practicing homeopathic medicine and providing a steadfast example to pilgrims of obedience. In this conversation with Padri recorded at Meherabad in 1972, he shares stories and lessons learned from a life spent following his Master. The recording ranges from a humorous story of a failed attempt to deliver Upsani Maharaj a horse and a bull, to an ardent exchange on the difference between ritual and a code of conduct in the presence of the Master.
