“When you come to Baba, leave your buffaloes behind”

In this amusing anecdote with a profound lesson, Mani narrates the story of a long journey. Baba wanted someone to bring Nilkanth Mast from Dehradun to Satara, a journey of 1200 miles, on a train. As travelling with masts can go, an adventure awaited the brave, old lady who took on the challenge. But the greatest of all challenges was to leave her buffaloes behind.

“To teach us for our own good”

Faredoon Driver, nicknamed “Padri” by Baba, joined the Master in 1922 when he was eighteen years old and remained with Him for the rest of his life. Baba had Padri oversee much of the construction and maintenance at Meherabad, calling him one of “the Four Pillars of Meherabad.” In the 1960s and 70s, many pilgrims to Meherabad found the stalwart, exacting, humorous, loving Padri to be an inspiring example of a life lived solely for Baba. But in this snippet of conversation, Padri focuses back on the early 1920s, when he and the Mandali were “absolutely raw” and Baba was a “stern taskmaster” teaching them obedience—including these two lessons that Padri never forgot.
