Here, then, is a vivid account of a living Perfect Master seeking out those lovers of GOD, who live for the most part in oblivion, relinquishing everything in the ardor of their struggle towards GOD; many of them bewildered on the Path, and not a few utterly intoxicated by the bliss of nearness to GOD, but all in need of the living Master's spiritual help. There again we see this Avataric figure moving among the poor, bathing their feet, giving them food and rainment [sic]*, and more than this, bathing each one in the Divine Love that radiates from him continuously. Of singular significance is the chapter recounting the spontaneous declarations of MEHER BABA'S spiritual greatness, made by saints and masts; another impressive chapter describes the Master's contacts with spiritual 'agents' outside of India.

 

The Wayfarers is over four hundred pages long, lavishly illustrated with photos and maps, and includes a fifteen-page pamphlet describing BABA'S visit to the Himalayas in April 1948, and a large lithographed map of India, in color, showing all the places where he worked with the masts, advanced souls, the God-mad and the poor. Written by an English doctor who has been with BABA many years, The Wayfarers combines factual reporting with wit and insight, and is a "must" in every spiritual library . . . an unique and immeasurably valuable contribution to the spiritual literature of all time.

WAYS TO ATTAIN THE SUPREME REALITY:   By SHRI MEHER BABA With interpretations in verse by MALCOLM SCHLOSS. $3.00

 

MEHER BABA dictated these "Seven Ways" in May, 1952, at his new Center at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and asked Malcolm, a well-known metaphysical poet and long-time disciple, to interpret them in verse. This unusual volume is the result. 

 

Prose is speech, but poetry is eloquence clothed in wonder and caught into communicative music, and Malcolm Schloss, in his interpretations, has become a poet in the true sense, exploring destiny, solving universal secrets, pondering things with hidden wisdom to enrich the world with new treasure. In measured language he has unerringly shaped his verse forms to suit the timbre and tenor of BABA'S songs . . . as in

  That illumines the heart
  Which has found itself
  And sings!"
