    Indian Saint: Meher Baba, on love, Love, Divine Bliss and Sex
    Very easy explained in just a few lines. I love that. Truth is simple I believe.

    First time I heard about this Saint.
    Very interesting, and I love the beautiful and easily readable/searchable website

    It's a bit different view from what most Dutchies have here.
    But we Dutchies are open for anything new;). Aren't you?

    First time I heard about him in any detail was in Paul Brunton's 'A Search in Secret India'. A differing view.

    Thank you [I googled; who to believe? Brunton made a bestseller out of it; fake news is known to help a lot [negetave sells best]. Meher Baba I don't know yet]

    Kali Yuga is confusing with all these contradicting claims. Lots of falsehood, not so much of truth. At least Meher Baba's website looks nice.

    Even fools can fool us when using wisdom from the Sages:
    "Silence is fitting for the wise, and a fortiori the same is true for fools." (Talmud)
    “Even a fool, when he holds his peace, is considered wise; and he that shuts his lips is esteemed as a man of understanding” (Proverbs 17:28).

    They say Meher Baba was in silence most of his life. So or he was a "wise man" or he was a "wise fool". Anyway he was "wise".

    But the wisdom of the Yoga Vasistha solves this problem:
    "The wise accept the words of even a fool when they are full of wisdom and reject words of the wise if they are foolish" (Yoga Vasistha)

    Paul Brunton, in his quest, kept returning to the sage at Arunachala. It's different strokes for different folks. Certainly Ramana didn't come to America to spread his word. Everyone interested went to him.

    Meher Baba's speciality was in treating Masts, those who had been mentally imbalanced by sudden or intense spiritual energies or experiences and neglected their life on the material dimension.

    Many of them ended up in lunatic aslyums as the conditioned society everywhere mistakenly thought them to be mad. But they were saints who were in deep bliss and joy and spread the same to others their company silently, unlike those who were overcome by psychosis and were mentally disturbed due to intense suffering or physiological issues.

    Meher Baba travelled wide everywhere in order to find masts and treat them so as to help them adjust to the material world better, and enable them to continue their spiritual development to enlightenment.

    He talks about masts here.

    I've been a follower of Meher Baba since 1969. I did not accept his assertions lightly but studied his life and his writings, met those who were close to him who were living back then and let some time pass before I concluded that he is who he said he is: the Avatar of the Age come to release a flood of love in the world.

    The Avatar Meher Baba Trust is a good source of writings http://www.ambppct.org/library.php

    The chart of creation and the path of life given in God Speaks was to me a perfect fusing of science and spirituality by merging evolutionary science with the spiritual path:

    Mischa Rutenberg has set many of Meher Baba's words and ideas to music. Here's one example:

    Thanks for sharing. Nice to hear someone enthusiastic about Him. I read a few things which gave me the good feeling He is sincere. And His teachings are very nice and true to what I learned so far. Always nice to see the unity in the diversity. Better than searching for faults and differences.

    That is for a long time since 1969. 50 years, amazing. You started when He died. But of course Masters like Him are always alive. They are not bound by time and location. When I read "it all started" after a lady Saint kissed Him on his 3rd eye, and reading just a few passages He felt very good to me.

    Thanks for the youtube. Wonderful about the pearl diving. Not many reach it [1 in a billion or so; at least it's a big challenge].

    at 2m0s I see 2 tiger or icebear heads in the waves. Coincidence or photoshopped into it?
