00-FOREWORD

FOREWORD

Humanity is now at a wonderful and extremely rare point of time, wherein the true seekers of God , now have the benefit of access to the fresh dispensation of message of love and truth. That this has emanated from the Avatar of the age, Meher Baba makes it even more valuable and precious. There is no need to arduously pour over multiple treatises on spirituality and even more tough methodology to seek God!

Although, Meher Baba has said “I have come not to teach but to awaken”, all His messages and discourses, makes it abundantly clear to all newbie’s at least -an extraordinary way to embrace spirituality. No other available spiritual literature makes it so easy to comprehend.  Baba in fact, says that to be most practical thing to do in the world is to be spiritually minded!.Now this would shock most people who are conditioned to think that to be spiritual is to forego the worldly life and do the rituals and ceremonies. Meher Baba says in no uncertain terms that to be spiritual, one does not need a special place, special circumstances nor is to be connected with anything away from of one’s mundane life. Baba says that spirituality’ covers all life for all time, yet it can very easily be achieved with selfless service and pure love’.  In order to make the relevant messages readily available, Shri Birendra Kumar has taken painstaking effort in compiling the messages with relevant examples. This format is very novel and this is what is required for both beginners and experienced readers as well. Shri Kumar has covered seventy messages of Avatar Meher Baba, spread over practically all aspects of life.

Indeed this is very timely publication and all lovers of God will find this volume extremely useful and relevant.
