A Secret Mantra


Pendu, one of Meher Baba's mandali, was among the companions who accompanied Baba on the New Life, a wandering phase of "helplessness and hopelessness" between 1949 and 1952. Years later, according to the recent book Meher Baba's New Life by Bhau Kalchuri, Pendu revealed that his "secret mantra" for enduring the hardships of that time was to inwardly repeat: HOLD ON TO HIM! HOLD ON TO HIM!
