“I want all my lovers to guard against maya’s tricks and hold firmly on to my daaman”

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center Applying the analogy [of sun and shadow]* to yourself as an individual, when you turn your face toward the sun [God], your shadow [maya] lies behind you, and although still existent, it has no power over you. But when you turn your back to the sun, you carry your shadow before you and are constantly aware of it, following in its wake. Therefore, even t... »

“The only thing that maya cannot go against is my work, because maya itself is the means of bringing about the results of my work”

The only thing that maya cannot go against is my work, because maya... »

“Any remark or criticism that does not hurt is good”

“Any remark or criticism that does not hurt is good”

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center Innocent and fair criticism does not hurt and is good, but it is quite rare. What I mean by talking ill of others is when you criticize and it hurts; it hurts when you criticize excitedly, out of anger. When you criticize with love and kindness, how can it hurt? … Any remark or criticism that does not hurt is good. Make fun, joke, humor, but don’t hurt... »

“It is going against one’s nature and habit that helps”

Impotence is no help. … Yoga means control, which is more difficult than cutt... »

“As a laundryman washes and cleanses clothes, in the same way, I remove all the dirt which has stuck to you”

Source: AvatarMeher.org, AMB Hyderabad Center Meanwhile Baba had assigned different duties to Jal Kerawalla, among them being to find a good boy and bring him to Baba. Jal would daily bring one boy after another, all of whom Baba would feed and give new clothes to, and then return to Jal.
