43-LITERATURE WORTH READING
Different kind of Scriptures
Meher Baba categorized different kinds of writings also. Baba said that words which come from the source of Truth have the real meaning. The sayings of Perfect Master or Avatar are worth reading, to be accepted and followed.
In Baba’s words:
“The scriptures are like rotten bones rotted and are as food for worms. Theosophy and philosophy are like good bones rotted and are as food for vultures. The writings of inspired poets are like fresh bones and are as food for dogs. The writings of spiritually advanced saints are like flesh and are food for tigers. The writings by living Perfect Masters are like brain and are food for men. Good bones when rotted have some semblance of bone, but rotten bones when rotted are like filth.”
