Candle in the dark

Hardly had the thought crossed his mind, when Ardeshir’s brother Seth Darabsha appeared on the scene, awakened by all the noise, carrying a heavy belt in his hand. Despite having just returned from the hospital and being in a weak state, Darabsha lunged into the battle with the belt in his ...

It was a quiet evening, of an yet un-eventful day, the 23rd of July, 1922. Those were the days when Mumbai was still a cluster of the main city and the distant suburbs made up of small villages. In the hamlet of Marol, situated in the suburb of Andheri, Putlibai and her husband Ardeshir Merwanji Bharucha, along with their children, and Ardeshir’s brother, Darabsha, had just finished their dinner. They settled down in their sprawling ...

As we sat dumb founded in our seats in the maidan that morning, we realized that besides the Mahatma we had been fortunate to meet, there were others like him in different parts of the country who helped and guided all of God’s creations. The Mahatma arose from his chair and addressed the birds: ‘my dear children, you are now free to roam this garden and forage for your food. Fifteen days from today, I ...

The Mahatma looked down with great compassion at the myna and replied: ‘Dear one, your freedom and re-uniting with your mate is not due to me, but it is solely due to the wish of the Lord, who sees all, who knows all, who is everywhere and who is all powerful. I am merely his lowly agent. It was my good fortune, that I could help you. Offer your gratitude to Him, not to me.’

On the following Sunday we got up early and departed for the Ashram in the commissioner’s car and reached there at about 9 am. We introduced the commissioner to the Mahatma, who received him very graciously. We were shocked to hear the Mahatma converse with the commissioner in flawless English! As we started talking, Rustomji inquired about his myna. The Mahatma asked us to walk with him to the verandah of his bungalow. As we ...

As we approached we saw that there was a massive iron frame on the ground where the boulder had stood. This was obviously a strong door leading to an underground place. To our surprise we saw that there were steps leading down and the steps were illuminated by electric lights on the side, even though we had seen no evidence of electric poles or cables on the entire way. The Mahatma started climbing down the ...

Thereupon, the Mahatma delivered a sermon to us on the great sin of keeping animals and other creations of god as pets. ‘Every creation of God is born on this earth with a particular function and destiny. But never does any creation of God have the destiny of being put in a cage for entertainment of others.

After some time, we moved on from the cattle rearing area and began to walk further into the orchard. As we passed through the shade of very large trees, we saw a large building further on. As we entered, we realized that it was a kind of gymnasium where students and their teachers were seen moving around. The head of the gymnasium came up to receive us warmly and began explaining the different types of ...

The next day, I went to see Seth Rustomji and narrated the previous day’s incidents to him. Rustomji was surprised that despite being a senior official of the area, he had no idea that such a person existed. I conveyed the Mahatma’s invitation to visit his orchard to Rustomji and together we decided to fix a date to go meet him. On the appointed day, we woke up at 4 am, and set off for ...

I was most surprised and shocked to hear this statement. But at least I realized that this garden was the residence of some great advanced soul. Now I am a traditional minded person and have great faith in religious men of all faiths. As a believer, it was easy for me to accept that an advanced soul would know that I would be coming here. My mind was therefore a little relieved, though still asking ...
