Banyen's Description: 

Dada [Sudhir Mukerjee] is recognized as one of the devotees who has been closest to Maharajji. Their relationship has been so intimate for so long that we treasure Dada’s stories about his “Baba” as especially precious. He is our elder brother in Maharajji’s spiritual family. —from the introduction by Ram Dass

An economics professor who became one of the closest and most beloved disciples of Neem Karoli Baba (who died in 1973), Sudhir “Dada” Mukerjee (1913–1997) here relates many of those amazing love-soaked stories of his guru. These precious reminiscences, gathered and edited with much love over many years, including Dada’s visits to the West in the 1980s, are a rare gold in the bhakti (devotional) tradition of India.

As Ram Dass writes in his introduction,

The intimacy between these men reminded me of the one-pointedness of mother-child love, when a mother can recognize her baby’s cry from a great distance. I once heard a saying about the tuning of true devotees to their Guru: “They hear his faintest whisper above earth’s loudest song; they see his slightest signal across the heads of the throng.”

We always want just one more story from Dada. For his faith never flickers. The purity, the power, and the obvious truth of his stories resonate deep within us, opening our hearts once again to our own innocence, reawakening in us our own perfect faith.

“Dada, tell us again. How did you meet Maharajji?”

Publisher’s Description: 

BY HIS GRACE: A Devotees Story by Dada Mukerjee, with an Introduction by Ram Dass, at $19.95 from Hanuman Foundation, ISBN 0962887870 / 9780962887871. Professor Sudhir Mukerjee taught economics at Allahabad University, edited a prestigious economics journal, was a political activist and a responsible family man. Then he met Neem Karoli Baba - a barefoot sadhu wearing only a dhoti who moved into Mukerjees home, uninvited. Courteously skeptical at first, Mukerjee was soon transformed into Dada, one of the most beloved disciples of Neem Karoli Baba. Ram Dass, another famous disciple, contributes the Introduction to this posthumous collection of Dadas stories of life with their mutual guru. 208 pp.
