“Sometimes He would make Himself so familiar that we forgot in His own presence who He is”

In this nimble talk, Eruch Jessawala recalls tales from his childhood with Meher Baba, who first communicated with slate and chalk then with an alphabet board. Eruch learned to read Baba’s rapidly moving fingers. Years later, on October 7, 1954, Meher Baba called the Mandali to Him to tell them He was discarding the board. Eruch relates, “We would speak to Him and He would just remain gazing at us.” Now came the arduous task of learning the system of hand gestures that Baba would use for the rest of His days on earth.
