GLAD TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY
      

 

"The Awakener" Himself, Meher Baba, is intending to visit the West this coming summer. The following message was sent from Satara, India, dated December 30, 1955, to Elizabeth Patterson, Meher Center-on-the-Lakes, Myrtle Beach, S.C.:

 

"Baba wants you to know, and to let everyone know as usual, that He will be coming to the West next summer. No women will accompany Him this time. He will bring three men, and it will be a special but short visit. On His way over, Baba intends to stop in England for two days (He will not visit Europe). He will stop four days in New York, four days in Myrtle Beach and seven days in California, spending roughly three days in northern California and three in southern California. This is the gist of the plan; details later."

 

A further note, in a letter to Don Stevens, indicates that Baba does not mind who or how many come to see Him, but that mainly He is coming to give His sahavas (company) to the near and dear ones whose love draws Him once more to the land of America . . .

 

Those who might wish to meet the Master should contact the Baba Centers listed on our inside back cover.

 

 

HOW I MET BABA

 

By RUANO BOGISLAV

 

Strange as it may seem, it was really through allowing myself to be persuaded to take a cocktail at the Ritz bar in Paris, that I eventually met Shri Meher Baba.

 

A dear friend of mine, [Quentin Todd] whom I had not seen for a long while, was returning to England from India via Paris. He had something of great importance to tell me. He tried to get in touch with me but without success, forgetting that I was only known by my stage name in Paris. He was walking down the Avenue de L 'Opera, when he suddenly changed his mind and decided to take the Boulevard des Capucines. It was just at this time, having finished my cocktail, that I started walking down the Rue Cambon and at the corner of the Boulevard des Capucines we met. We met because I was meant to hear what he had to tell me, and he promised to come to dinner that night.
