Shri Babaji Maharaj used to say:

Maine jis din se janam leeyaa hai mujhe pataa naheen gham kis balaa kaa naam hai!

Ever since the day I was born I have never known of the menace which they refer to as sorrow!

There were occasions when the troubles of the world surrounded Shri Babaji Maharaj, and the more these troubles increased, the more joyful he seemed to become. His face lit up with an unearthly divine glory. And when the troubles were at their worst he was even seen dancing with joy! He saw the Will of God working in everything that happened around him, and, because he had surrendered himself before His Will, he was always content and blissful.
Once he said: I have befriended sorrow, suffering and pain. These are my treasures for which I have no rivals–for no one desires them!
When he was asked: But Babaji, how can you befriend such dreadful things?
Shri Babaji said: How can they be dreadful when I love them?
Shri Babaji Maharaj also said:

“There is no state higher than mine,
There is no state lower than mine,
And there is no state like mine.”

Shri Babaji Maharaj would frequently say:
I can never be content in my own salvation for as long as I feel my other selves enfettered in the bondage of sorrow and suffering.
His overflowing love for humanity, and compassion and mercy, endeared him to all. People of all religious faiths came to him and derived solace from him. Shri Babaji Maharaj would often say:
I have experienced upon my own body, heart and soul, the truths propounded in the Vedas, Upanishads, Bible, Koran, Granth Sahib, and, indeed, in the holy books of all faiths, and can say without a shadow of a doubt that these are absolutely correct and real.
