Fred Winterfeldt recounted:
[In July 1952 in Scarsdale] “I spoke to Baba about someone who, in order to protect his family and himself from destruction foretold by Baba, wanted to establish a home way up in the mountains, and stock it with the necessary food.
“Baba interrupted me and said, ‘No place will be safe, not even the top of the Himalayas. Only by the grace of God can one be saved.’ So I asked Baba if this destruction would be a man-made or a natural one, then Baba answered, ‘It will be both.’”
—Letter to the Editor from Fred E. Winterfeldt, The Awakener Magazine, vol. 7, no. 1 (1960), p. 40
Darwin Shaw narrates the same story in his book As Only God Can Love, p.141:
“On one occasion when Fred Winterfeldt, John Bass, and I were talking with Baba, he told us about a world catastrophe that would take the lives of many people. Fred told Baba that he had a friend who had heard about this predicted world catastrophe and was seriously considering moving to some remote mountain area where it might be safer. Using his alphabet board, with one of the Eastern men interpreting, Baba replied, ‘If the world catastrophe occurs after November 15—when my Fiery Free Life begins—it will be so devastating that even the tops of the Himalayas will be affected. Do not run away. It will do no good. Only those who are protected by God will survive.’
“Then one of us asked Baba, ‘Are there any masts in America?’ Baba began gazing around, as though scanning America. He replied, ‘One or two, but don’t look for them. You have me.’”
