THE PHYSICAL FORM OF THE MASTER
WE read of peculiarities in the physical
form of a perfect Master. Physically, too, he suffers from no deformity
and has no weaknesses in him. His gait is full of grace and dignity. His
eyes shine like those of a lion. He has a broad forehead, a mark of a lotus
on his feet, and generally a black mole on his brilliantly luminous face.
Hafiz, a great Sufi poet of Shiraz, tells us:
If that beauty of Shiraz (the Master) were to take charge of
my wandering mind, I would throw away both the worlds
(earth and heaven) at the altar of the wonderful mole on His Face.
