Telephone Baba

Baba’s devotee Dr. Naval Kishore was the gynecologist at Agra Medical College until he received a post at Ramsay Hospital in Nainital. Some time after he arrived, Baba asked him to treat the hill women at Hanumangarh, which he did daily from 10am until 4pm. One day Naval Kishore could not go to work. Baba.. read more →

He gave instructions to the publisher to print the book and came to India with the first copy to present to Maharaji. Maharaji had not studied English.

In the Form of Destiny

On a dark evening in Bhumiadhar, November 9 1962, Brahmachari Baba was warming himself by a fire, outside the temple on the roadside. Maharaji was sitting alone in meditation in his kuti. A thin, weak man with long, matted hair, wearing shabby and tattered clothes, came and sat quietly near Brahmachari ji. His hands and.. read more →

One Ailment, Different Treatment

One day Baba was sitting on a parapet by the roadside when a sadhu named Balak came and offered pranaam to him. Baba said to Balak, “What’s the trouble?” Balak told him that he had been suffering from stomach pain since the previous evening.

Maharaji and the Woman in the Hospital

At a bhandara around 2001, I met a woman who had come for the first time. Some years ago a copy of Be Here Now had fallen into her hands, and after reading it she knew Maharaji was her guru. She lived in the rural midwest and had never had contact with any of Maharaji’s.. read more →

Maharaji Introduces Me to Baba Ram Dass

Krishna Das had instructed me to return to my uncle and Siddhi Ma in the summer of 2004 and try as I did I could not make the necessary travel arrangements. There were no return tickets to London in time for my children’s school term, so that was that. The next school term break was in.. read more →

Kainchi Leela

I was introduced to Siddhi Ma by my aunt and was given permission to stay at the ashram even though I had made no prior arrangements for staying. I didn’t even realise what a huge priviledge this was and that not many are given it. Siddhi Ma placed me in a room which I shared.. read more →

Excerpts From Usha Bahadur

Some people came with an objective or an attachment. One very rich woman came to Maharaj-ji with a big box of sweets for Maharaj-ji. She wanted to take the sweets for herself and her friends outside.

Whenever You Remember Me, I Will Come

In September 1961, I had finished my bath and tea early in the morning and came into my room to study. While taking out the book which I had been reading the night before, I was amazed to see “Ram Ram” written over the whole cover page. I was familiar with Babaji’s handwriting so it.. read more →

Baba’s Invisible Movements

Leaving aside physical suffering and mental torture, there was another kind of deeper and more painful suffering which Babaji could not neglect. Many times it was to rescue the helpless that he had to run away like a vagabond. Sometimes unimaginable calamities come to people — someone has died, someone has been thrown out of.. read more →
