only once.” It was their last meeting on the
evening of October 17, On Christmas eve, December
24, 1941, at 3:30 a.m. Mahraj, who was in his
seventy-first year, passed on.
What was said between the two
Realizers comes from ‘The God-Man’, The Life, Journey and
Work of Meher Baba with an Interpretation of his Silence and
Spiritual Teaching by C.B Purdom 2010 edition.
These are the words of Meher Baba.
“Later on Maharaj sent word by Adi’s
mother Gulmai, “Soon I shall drop this body, so tell Merwan
to come and see me. I said I would not set foot in Sakori,
so a meeting was arranged elsewhere in a hut. We embraced
each other and I put my head under his foot. He said, “You
are Adi-Shakti” (The Supreme Power). He started weeping, and
said to me, “Keep you eye on Sakori.” Then we both went
away, and three to four months later, Maharaj dropped his
body, and Godavri was given charge of the nuns. Godavri was
in the secret all the time but never said a word about
