Jamali & Jalali
Perfect Masters have been known to exhibit qualities of both the jamali and the jalali.
‘Jamali’ means mild or sweet-tempered, whilst ‘Jalali’ refers to the fiery tempered who occasionally beat their followers.
One example of the latter is Upasni Maharaj, (1870-1941), the Perfect Master who set his seat at Sakori on the Maharashtran Deccan.
A visitor once recounted visiting the Perfect Master only to later witness Upasni knocking six bells out of one of his devotees.
This visitor was even more surprised the following day to discover that this devotee was not only physically unscathed, but positively glowing.
So it seems that being physically beaten up by a Perfect Master is a good thing.
But how do you know if someone is a PM (Perfect Master) ?
And would you let them beat you up just in case they were?
