Page : 6038 TO MEHERAZAD & MEHERABAD
At 6:00 A.M. on Tuesday morning, November 6th, the Westerners climbed into four buses and cars for their visits to Meherabad, Meherazad and the Ahmednagar Center. Their first stop was Meherazad, where Kaka Baria and Francis Brabazon gave them a tour. The mast-like man Baracoat was also there. Next, they went to the Center in Ahmednagar, where Rustom Kaka sang and a dance of worship was performed. Sarosh hosted a breakfast and lunch at Viloo Villa. Afterwards they went to Meherabad, where they were led on a tour by Padri and Donkin. Each one paid their respects to Meher Baba's Tomb.
Later that day they returned to Poona, arriving at 8:30 P.M. When they were passing Guruprasad palace, shouts of "Avatar Meher Baba Ki Jai!" were heard, and Baba too was listening. From his room, he sent Bhau to have a look as each bus passed. Baba was full of love for his lovers and was remembering many of them. He had kept the heart of each with him and was worshiping it with love. Most of the Westerners left Poona early the next morning. Those who stayed were taken to Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar to see Baba's cave in Tiger Valley.
The Karachi group was leaving that night, returning to Pakistan. During that day, Baba saw them at Guruprasad.
On November 7th, Baba sent for the workers of the Poona Center. Most of them had been engaged in one duty or another for the arrangements in schools and other institutions during the gathering and they had not had a chance to see Baba. They had labored hard day and night, and Baba praised and embraced each one, especially Ramakrishnan. Baba also met with those who were occupied with arranging things for the Westerners (Jal, Jehangu, Meherjee and Meherwan). The arrangements proved to be excellent and all had been comfortable and satisfied. Baba had a few words of praise for them too. In addition, Baba showed his appreciation for Madhusudan, Subhadra, Pratap and Narendra Thade for singing during the program. He also saw the Bombay group that morning.
On the afternoon of November 7th, Baba met with the Australians who had arrived late. Clarice Adams was called, and Baba asked about her husband, Stan. "Baba, he says to tell you he can still grin," Clarice replied.
Baba embraced her and gestured, "When you get home, embrace Stan and each of the children. It will be Baba's embrace and love to them."
