Now he tells us!
Today’s e-mail from The Glow International Magazine describes this feature of the Spring 2012 issue of the magazine, soon to be available to subscribers: “Meher Baba Never Broke His Silence: In a Glow International exclusive, Bhau Kalchuri clarifies his earlier remarks about Meher Baba’s silence. “The words ‘Yaad Rakh’ were expressed in gestures.”
Bhauji’s original claim is described here. He specifically said:
“At 11:00 pm. [30th January 1969] He [Baba] used the Hindi words, ‘Yad Rakh.’ The phrase was audible only once, and it was at 11:00 pm.”
So now Bhau is saying that the words were not audible but were expressed in gestures? Is the Glow‘s exclusive journalistic scoop a “clarification” — or is it not a retraction of Bhau’s report that Meher Baba physically spoke the words Yad Rakh (“Remember this”) the day before dropping His body?
The Glow has us where it wants us: waiting at the mailbox or subscribing. But where is it that Bhau has us with this trickster-like announcement? We must delay judgment until the big scoop is received.
