Meherwan Merchant has sent out a notice that Shridhar Kelkar’s son* met with an accident on 1 July 2011 and died. No other details were given. We invite his family and friends to send us tributes and photos to celebrate the lifetime of this dear one of Beloved Baba who has now passed to Him. We send our love to the family and friends.
Baba wishes us to remember that death is false. About His own brother who had died, Baba said, “Believe me, Jamshed is not dead. His body has died. Everyone thinks he is dead, but I say he has taken birth. The joy expressed by people at the birth of a child should be expressed when a person breathes his last, instead of all the show of sorrow, grief and sympathy. . . . If you have love for the dead, it should be selfless. The dead do not want your expression of sadness. Manifest such love for them that they would be pleased and at peace. If you want the consciousness of their souls to progress, express selfless love. Do not make them unhappy by your weeping and wailing.”
In 1929 at Nasik, Baba said: “If a person dies by a sudden accident before he would have died naturally, he immediately takes birth again and completes the remaining time of his past life, after which he dies. Some live for one, two, three, four or five years. And after finishing the period remaining from their past life, they take another body according to the sanskaras of the life which ended suddenly by accidental death. However, they cannot live longer than it takes to complete this remaining time. This is why some children die, some in a few days, some in a few months, and some after a few years.”
Baba assures us that “I am never sorry for anyone who dies. He who dies with my name on his lips, with me in his heart, never dies. I never worry about them, for theirs is no loss. If I am ever worried, it is for those that suffer through the death, which they might allow to alienate them from me. That would be their loss indeed. Why suffer unnecessarily? My dead live in me. That should make you happy.”
