After twenty years, now in print again, with its lavish photographs and maps, including two later supplements.
Dr. Donkin has documented a meticulous account of Avatar Meher Baba's work with the masts, covering the years 1922-1949, relating also stories of Meher Baba's work with the mad, the poor and various types of aspirants on the path to God-realization.
Meher Baba, felt by millions to be the Christ or God-Man of this cycle of time, makes an immense contribution to both psychology and metaphysics in his descriptions of altered states of consciousness. He clarifies distinctions between "insanity" and "God-intoxication" never before understood in the Western world. These explanations should prove invaluable to psychiatrists, psychologists and others who must learn to differentiate psychopathology from genuine experiences of transcendent awareness.
