When I wash the feet of the poor and bow down to them, I do it with
all my heart into it. And I not only play the part of one who bows
down and gives gifts, I become that. I not only play the part, but I
actually become that.
When Baba washed feet on Darshan Day, this washing of the feet is
something due to Perfect Ones, according to Hindu customs. Then Baba gave
gifts to the poor, Dev-Dakshana. So I became the devotee [and] disciple
of the seven Perfect Ones when I placed my head on their feet. Then again
I resumed my seat and became again the Avatar, and people began bowing
down to me. Honesty demands that what I am I must express.
