All These Things Take Time, Mister
Stories of Padri
by Eric Nadel
These sixteen stories by "Erico" contain vivid recollections of Padri. one of the mandali who had been with Baba since the 1920s, from 1976 until Padri passed away in 1982. They are part of a book that Erico intended to write about Padri, which was unfinished when Erico himself passed away in 2009.
A second section, “Remembering Padri,” is a series of conversations between Ted and Janet Judson, Alan Wagner, Heather Nadel, and Bob Street, who were also at Meherabad during this time. They recall what it was like for such “raw recruits” to live with Padri, a stalwart disciple of the God-Man.
