Baba's brother JAMSHED IRANI died February 26 or 27, 1926 (LM3 p779-785). Baba later commented about his death:

'If you love me, you are with me. Then you come to me. Through love, you can become one with me. My brother Jamshed loved me very much. He was mad with love for me. Once he was so full of love for me that he couldn't contain himself, and he dropped his body. But just before dying, he shouted out loudly "Baba!" He has come to me. He is now with me eternally.'



21 July 1956, New York, Aw 4:2 p26



'My brother Jamshed, when we were boys, used to quarrel and fight with me. As he grew older, Jamshed began to love me. Later on, in Meherabad, he couldn't sleep because he thought all the time about me. When he went to Poona, all of a sudden he had a splitting headache, and the heart felt heavy. And just before an attack of apoplexy, he felt very blissful. He shouted my name, and then fell into a coma. And during those three hours, his lips were moving with the rhythm, "Baba, Baba, Baba." Mani was there. Then he died. He came to me.'
