“Whatever we are is His help to us”

In this sweet talk given in Mandali Hall, Bal Natu addresses the human anxiety about the less virtuous parts of ourselves that might stand in the way of pleasing Baba. He goes on to share the parable of a stag and a hunter to illustrate that all our qualities, no matter how we perceive them, are given to us by God to help us.

“He is not a dull Avatar”

In this spirited talk, Irwin Luck discusses the time he spent with Baba, but his recollection is not a plain recounting; it is interspersed with a lifelong reflection on what it is to be with Baba and belong to Him. Irwin first went to Baba because he wanted to know God and Baba indulged his request and changed the inner fabric of his being. His inner voice intuitively led him to New York from where he finally ended up in India. Tackling questions on metaphysics and beyond, Irwin describes Baba’s work in our lives through the effacement of the mind and finally through love—the only way to God.

“He made human of them”

In this segment of a talk, Naja Irani, Baba’s cousin and close disciple, discusses following Baba in the very early days of His work, around 1920. She speaks of the sometimes ragtag group of early disciples—from all religions and castes, and with wildly different temperaments—and how Baba in His love accepted all of them, bringing each inexorably nearer to God.

We also hear from Baba’s Mandali who were on the trip about what it was like to travel with Baba through the region and watch Him pour out His love.
