A great soul has got to a great place

On November 24, 1996 – Paulos Mar Gregorios Verghese passed on to the next life after struggling for several years with the effects of a stroke. As Babaji said of his dear friend’s passing. "He is a very great soul, and he is going to a very great place."

This very “Great Soul” left the a last will for all of us:

"I leave this word to all who survive me:

v Love God with all your mind and all your will and all your feeling and all your strength.

v Live for the good of others. Pursue not perishable gold or worldly glory.

v Wish no one any evil. Bless God in your heart, and bless all his creation.

v Discipline yourself while still young, to love God and to love his creation,

v To serve others and not to seek one’s own interest.

v Pray always that God’s Kingdom may come and all evil be banished from this created order."
