Meher Today – 3rd September
3 September 1928
On the evening of 3 September, there was a discussion about poets and Baba remarked:
Persian poets are the best, followed by the Urdu ones and then the Marathi poets. In English, only Wordsworth and Shelley are of that caliber. Hafiz’s poems are truly the most inspiring and revealing. Rumi’s and Shams’ are philosophical, but they are filled with beauty and truth.
Baba added, “Our Khak Saheb, after he gains ‘experience’ will be inspired, and a flow of writing will pour forth from him in the future, which will be extraordinary.”
3 September 1929
In order to secure passports and visas required to visit Persia, Baba left Meherabad for Bombay on 3 September 1929, two weeks prior to his scheduled departure. Chanji, Gustadji, and Ramjoo accompanied him, among others. In Bombay, Baba was accommodated at Naval and Dina Talati’s apartment in the Shivlal Motilal building on Bellasis Road at Byculla. Many new devotees came into the Master’s contact during his week-long stay there.
