Following Meher Baba
A Handbook for Baba-lovers in the New Humanity
Hardcover 298 pp.
From the back cover:
"A 'how-to' book about following the Lord of Love? No way! He is above and beyond all the machinations of the mind, all the doctrines and creeds, all the tenets and laws that characterize not only all the religions of the world but also the countless 'spiritual paths' that all eventually must, however circuitously, lead to the One Infinite Reality. This book is rather a collection of thoughts about what transpires when a seeker happens to come into the orbit of the Love of the Ancient One - God in human form as the Avatar, the Christ, the God-Man. What are the contours of the Divine Romance; which is the quickest, the easiest, and the most joyous path to Realization? What can you expect of the Divine Beloved, and what might He expect of you?
Love is, of course, a game all to itself, and the lover-Beloved relationship between the smitten heart and the Divine Beloved is a Divine Game beyond all description. Yet some of the wisdom shared by the Kalki Avatar and His closest disciples may be of interest to the cunning lover: for who would not wish to know more about how to curry the favor of the One Who has stolen your heart? Who would not be desperate to try to learn what pleases and displeases that most lovely Beloved of all beloveds, so as to help insure your certain passage to His inner court? Open this book, then, to find my side of the conversation about what 'following Meher Baba' is all about. May it begin to provoke a deeper longing in us all to discover and live the life of the true lover of God."
