Meher Baba's appreciation of Murli's Cheerful and jolly mood in the New Life
(Manjari Mafi dated 11th April 1950.)

Murli's implicit obedience of Baba's orders in the New Life

Murli Kale  Mandli and New Life Companion of Meher Baba 1913 - 1977

"When the meeting was ending, Baba turned to Murli Kale and, before everyone, praised him for his consistently exemplary behavior in conforming with the conditions of the New Life. From among all the companions, Baba stated that Murli alone had managed to remain cheerful throughout all the ups and down faced so far. Baba folded his hands to Murli as a salaam in recognition of his merits. The meeting ended at eleven o'clock that morning, and Baba departed."

"The men agreed that Murli had indeed managed to fulfill the New Life conditions. Once, when they had been traveling by bus, Baba told the companions to get down and come by the next bus, which they did. At the bus stand Murli saw his sister.  In obedience to the conditions, he turned his face and walked away without speaking to her. The next day, he received a telegram that his sister had died; even then he kept up a cheerful appearance."
