With Baba Ram Dasji in Maui

This was my third meeting with the amazingly beautiful Baba Ram Dasji after many years. On this perfect day in Maui. His lovely house was to be found in the North-West part of the island. And though we had an address there is something about the house that one recognized it on sight. Maybe it is the calm peacefulness and all that bliss! Surely enough, Dasi Ma was expecting us and immediately came to the door and invited us inside. And Baba Ram Dasji was also there with a most radiant smile, warm and welcoming. One just stood awhile and took in that wonderful moment of fullness and mutual recognition. It was like being finally face to face with Love itself! I offered him my gift from India, the Tibetan 'Yak Wool' shawl that he joyfully accepted. We then followed him into the spacious sitting room, that was also a shrine and full of light. Calmly he began speaking with us, sweetly inquiring and interested, listening to all our replies with a deep mood of underlying joy. And there appeared a most beautiful, and complete, rainbow right over his head that ended into the ocean itself, seemingly, since there were big windows behind him. It was most astonishing and inspiring!
He spoke of many things,of the beauty of life and the trails of ageing. He said that when he had become so ill, after his stroke and the paralysis,he spoke to Baba Neemkaroliji, and asked him why all this had happened to him. He said, "You promised me 'Grace'. What is this?" He answered, "This is the 'Grace' that you are in this most difficult state and yet you are in bliss and in my presence. That you have accepted all things in your life, this is 'Grace'!
This beautiful man of 82 yrs. now, gently shared with us many blessings. All his words fell on our ears like pure 'Grace'. He spoke of the rolls everyone plays in life, and how all of it was ever leading us towards a final goal, towards a sublime state of Pure Grace, where we can realize our actual True Self and find That One as our own Ultimate Being. How all of life is for this purpose of finding Oneself in This Very Moment,The Now,and staying finely tuned to the Presence as Present. " I am Infinite!", he said as if in a reverie, as if in an abstracted state of momentary absorption. And there spread a sublime state of bliss through all of us present there with him.
Then Ram Dass told us that his Guru once came close to him and said, "Love everyone!" and he came closer and repeated it. And then he came right up to him, face to face and again slowly and clearly said,"Love everyone! I'm telling you to love everybody in the world that's all!" "So, I'm a Democrat, and I put George Bush there." and he pointed to his shrine right in front of us, where his Guru, Neemkaroli Baba's photo was prominent among others. And he showed us that now there is the photo of the Head of the Senate placed there instead of Bush. And he continued,"So, I go,'Hello Anandamayi Ma!,Awe! Nityananda! and I said, 'Hello George!' And I said that I have to see his soul. All I'm doing is reacting to his incarnation. And then I felt sorry for his soul, that has got a lousy incarnation!! As I took leave of this most beautiful soul I said,"You are pure joy." He said, "I surrender to Him." About 'Darshan' he said, "You know this is interesting, in India I learned that you don't see the Guru, the Guru sees you. See, you stand there and wait, you put effort behind." I said," I didn't wait though, I came running to India, looking all around. But when you see that person it's as if you can't find on your own, but it's there." And he said, "Yeah, it's there."
