Out of a thousand million people, only 100,000 are on the Path. Out of these 100,000, only ten become majzoobs, and out of the ten, only one comes down as a Perfect Master.
Today I've talked much. I won't do it every time. I don't like it. In the mast ashram I don't talk, I work.
I want you to start sending Warrior [the puppy] over to the mast ashram every day at 2:00 P.M. for a week. The night watchman has reported that every morning at 3:00 A.M. two wolves have been seen prowling outside the compound, so be careful of the ducks and hens.
After working intensely with Karim Baba for several weeks, Baba finished his work with him and sent him back to Calcutta on 16 August with Kaka Baria. Baba then began staying in the cage-room which had been specially built for this "Tiger-mast." After Calcutta, Kaka went on to Tanjore, where he located a mast who refused to accompany him to Meherabad. Kaka went to Madras and other places looking for masts, but he was unsuccessful and returned to Bombay.
During August 1940, Baba sent Masaji (who was on silence) to Pandharpur to bring the mast known as Kabir to Meherabad. Kabir was a most frightening character, near-naked, very dirty, wild hair and unforgettable; his large mouth had two rows of yellow teeth and he roared with the loudest laughter like some wild beast. His haunt was the cremation grounds of Pandharpur, and it was said that he swallowed the incinerated ashes of the corpses there. Baba bathed and shaved this mast, and sent him back to his haunt after one day at Meherabad.
Meanwhile at Ankai, Gustadji, Pleader, Savak and Bhabananda were facing unexpected hardships. Pappa Jessawala would give them tea at 4:00 A.M., lunch would be served at 7:00 A.M., afternoon tea at 10:00 A.M. and dinner at 2:00 P.M.! All were forced to follow this absurd regime. None could say a word to refute Pappa's instructions, since they were on silence and had been ordered by Baba to obey whatever Pappa said.
