The Flood

There was a very heavy flood, and the water of both the Ganges and Jamuna had risen to a high level in Allahabad. The currents were very strong.

Nowhere to Go

During the months I was in yogi training at Maharaj-ji’s little temple in the hills, I got really high. It felt like light was pouring out of my head. At one point I had to go to Delhi to get my visa renewed. I went as a yogi. I had long hair and a long beard and māla.. read more →

Afterward

Nowadays people come to me and say, “Dada, shall we see Maharaji again in his body?” I say, “Look here, you may be having his darshan, but if I see him again I will say, ‘Do not come in that body anymore!’ He carried us in his arms for twenty years and what did we.. read more →

Only Babaji Knows

Babaji used many methods to mitigate the sufferings and hardships of people who visited him. They were seldom done in the public gaze, but they were going on every day. Some poor farmer would come and say, “Out of my one pair of bullocks, which is my only source of living, one has died and.. read more →

A Divine Person in a Human Frame

Babaji was known as a great saint — a highly realized soul with all the spiritual powers. Writing about Baba, Swami Vijayananda, a disciple of Anandamayi Ma, called him “a yogi whose name radiates an aura of mystery and miracle.” We saw many of his miracles coming one after another; they continue even now. They.. read more →

Million Dollar Darshan

In February of 1973, I met Neem Karoli Baba at the Hanuman mandir on Parikrama Road in Vrindaban, one day before he left for Kainchi Dham. At that time, I had only $300 in American Express checks, and $100 I would exchange for rupees in New Delhi before leaving for Kumoan. I decided to play.. read more →

Cleanse the Mirror of your Heart

I desired to have Maharaji come visit my home but kept putting off asking him. I had told Dada of my desire, hoping that he could help me to invite Maharaji. I had just met Maharaji for the first time a few weeks before. One day I was standing outside the window where Maharaji was,.. read more →

A Story from Krishna Das

It is the soft time of evening. On Dada’s porch we listen to the sounds that attend the approaching night: people speak­ing softly as they pass along the roadway, children’s laughter, dogs barking, a baby crying and being comforted; in nearby houses kitchen sounds—of pots being moved, water being poured. We sit with our cups.. read more →
