    Hi Anthony,

    This is just fantastic work! I have spent almost every waking hour of the last so many weeks engrossed in all the great information on this website! From the colorized images, the actual information about all BLs and mandali members, etc I feel like I have learned more in the last few weeks than in the last couple of decades amongst Baba lovers.

    Jai Baba! Keep up the good work.

    I have known of this website for quite awhile but haven't had the time to explore it until now. It is certainly a value site dedicated to the Life of Meher Baba. Which part, if any, do you suggest is good for one who is newly interested in Baba. Thank you for this wonderful resource for those new and not-so-new to Baba!

    Just found out my Grandfather was born in Foochow on the 27th of July 1910 and spent a large part of his life in Shanghai. He was also kept in Pootung Civilian Assembly Center Shanghai as a POW in WW II. The more I look the more I learn. Love all the old art deco: art nuevo travel guides and 1930's pictures. The thought of him disembarking off of the Empress of Japan and stepping into his home town of Shanghai adds one small moment in a large area that is left empty from never being given the chance to meet him or him being given the chance to know his son.

    I had the privilege of visiting Wombye many years ago, and was given a tour of the grounds, and places where Meher Baba had stayed. This visit had a profound effect on me, which continues today. Thank you for being the keepers of this special place.

    Really enjoyed the site. Came here looking for info about Max Gysi. It's hard to believe (or just ironic) that there is no photo of him considering his father was Arnold Gysi, an early pioneer of photography in Switzerland. When I visit the photo archives next week, maybe I'll find something. If so I'll let you know.

    Dear Anthony,
    We were thrilled to find your website and SO grateful for the information and photographs you have tracked
    down about the Man who built our Home: Emile Brunel. We think the photo of the young man and woman are wedding photos of Walt Disney and his wife. It's a theory. Anyway! We bought "Brunel Park" in 1997. You cite our wiki website about the Emile Brunel Studio and Sculpture Garden. We are in the proces of incoporating as a charitable organization (Friends of Brunel Park) so we can raise funds friends and support to keep up the statues and gardens and to offer programs in partnership with other local arts, cultural, historic, Native American, architectural, organizations and institutions. We have more information to share with you. So please do be in touch. All best, Cynthia and Evgeny Nikitin cynthianikitin@gmail.com

    Meher Baba was in influential spiritual master of the 20th century, who called himself the Avatar, the incarnation of God. Despite the fact that he kept silence throughout his whole life as a teacher, he lived an active life, travelled extensively and was enthusiastically received in the West as well as in India. Among all the spiritual teachers of the century, he was the one who gave the most detailed and profound explanation of the purpose of creation, the ways of spiritual evolution and the growth of the soul towards the ultimate consciousness.
    Personaly i think he is the best!

    I have a lot of information on Padri's older brother, Rusi, who was born in Persia in 1897 and emigrated to India in 1903. He was in school with Baba at one point although 3 years apart in age. He fought in WWI. His mother had a very close relat. with Babajan who ok'd Rusi's request to go to America to "get into movies". He arrived in NY on July 2, 1920 and soon found out his dream of the movies was subservient to making a living. He got a scholarship from the Govt. of Persia to go the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO. He started studying civil engineering there in 1923 and completed his degree in 1927. He maintained some contact with India, especially with his brother Homi. Padri was his younger brother. He went to WV in 1927 and got his first job as a civil engineer there. He met his wife, a local West Virginian, there and they married in August, 1930. She convinced him to convert to Christianity although he may have done so just to appease her. They had a son Fredrick in 1934 and a daut, Nancy, in 1939. They were in White Sulphur Springs WV in 1940, but after the war started (I think), they moved to Knoxville, Tenn. where he worked for the TVA. Unclear how long he was there, but at least until the late 40's. He and his first wife did not stay together. She lived in Washington DC and he lived elsewhere. Married for a second time to Mary Allen in Arkansas. His daut Nancy had children, do not know their names. Fredrick helped though in 2013 put some pieces together about his father's life. At one point Naorooz lived at the bottom tip on Texas, evidently for another engineering job. He is only person who was so close to the mandala, Babajan and Baba to go to America and stay there.

    I am the descendant of Alexander Markey. I have his Indian film. I guess he did in the 40's or 50's after Hei Tiki. My mother gave that one back the Maori people. Our family has been passing it down to protect it since the 50's. Please if anyone reads this that is interested in helping this film live on with his history, Contact me in Hawaii. Blessings to all and the World. Namaste and Aloha Alalani

    Jai Baba to all reading this! Just read that dear Adele Wolkin is in Hospice in Myrtle Beach, SC. I saw her a year ago, at the Meeting Place on the Center, and she remembered meeting me in New York City at her apartment, when she was married to Mr. McEwen (December, 1968). I got to see her several times in California, visiting her down south during Pilgrim Pines Retreat, and Meherana, I believe. Baba has blessed her with a long and useful life! Love to you, dear Adele, from Melody

    We own a house in Cottonwood Arizona. I always know that if I end up there, I can find some Baba Lovers! My daughter attended Meher Schools in Lafayette California, and my parents introduced me to Meher Baba through their involvement with Sufism Reoriented. I hope our paths cross someday! I love your website, and go to it often.

    Looking for Mischa Gutenberg for his sensitive remembering of Kayla Rose, I found this site. I appreciate It's complete information presented with simplicity. May I ask who is (or who are) the originators?

    When the Walnut Creek Sufis came for the anniversary of the East-West Gathering, from my duty position in Samadhi I kept hearing a man's voice that I enjoyed. While the Sufis came for darshan, I didn't learn many names, including Mischa's, the man whose voice I was enjoying. Seeing his photo online at his current age I recognized him. That led me to you. Baba's way of working us together.

    Tony, your site just keeps getting better and better... You have lovingly and artistically assembled such a treasure of information, of Baba's Love expressed in form, that it's hard to comment on it in words. May Baba continue to bless and sustain you (and whoever helps you) in the wonderful work you are doing for Him. Jai Baba, David
