8 November 1940

On Friday, 8 November 1940, Baba asked Norina, “Which would you rather be, my hat or my sandals?”

Norina said, “Your sandals.”


“Because the sandals are your companions over good roads and bad. They pass through dirt, rain and mud and are always with you.”

Baba nodded in agreement, spelling out, “This is the reason why people in India worship the chappals [sandals] of the Master and not his hat.”
