“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.

“His love was something that kept us to Him”
In this talk, Dr. Hoshang Bharucha, devoted lover of Meher Baba, medical doctor, and the author of Meher Baba’s Last Sahavas and Glimpses of Guruprasad, describes his last meeting with Baba on October 18, 1968. He goes on to tell a fascinating love story of a family who traveled a great distance to have Baba’s darshan. They stood in the queue for hours. So many people were in line, the darshan ended before they could even catch a glimpse of Baba. There is a surprise ending to the story of how they did indeed have Baba’s darshan that involved them being locked in a garage!
