Meher Baba's Colophon
Virginia Anne Bowers (Friday, 31 July 2020 13:16)
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 love this story of Baba's stay at East Challacomble.
Joanne Greene (Monday, 06 April 2020 17:38)
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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

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
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

I was one of the people at Woodstock. I still have copies of the special cards the young Baba Lovers in NYC from the Fredella Mon meetings decided to design and we passed them out to people. Will be
donated to Beloved Archives. Also remaining copies I have of the original fist printing of God in a Pill.
This web site is amazing.

Thanks for creating such an impressive resource documenting Baba's travels and other topics of interest. I've almost finished reading Lord Meher (just passed page 6000 in the online version) so all
this additional detail is most welcome. It adds both depth and breadth to Bhau's monumental biography. Jai Baba.

Ellen (Friday, 21 June 2013 12:04)
Thanks for taking the considerable time to document Baba's travels. I also appreciate the other details here like the sports, music, films, prominent people Baba met. Recently, I got back from a tour
of Morocco and an Aussie woman who lives in Dubai recommended Oman above all Middle Eastern countries to visit. As a child and adult I have been lucky to visit many of the places Baba visited and I
can tell you it is true the Godman leaves his "scent" or fragrance behind in these places. The vibe is often powerful. Ellen in South Carolina

Andy Barton (Sunday, 10 March 2013 14:58)
Great site Tony, thanks and Jai Baba. Three quick anecdotes about the Mandali and a Baba dear one: In 1973, I watched Mani "chug" a bottle of coke in Meherazad; while in Meherabad, I became quite ill
with the flu, and Padri lovingly treated me with a homeopathic remedy and brought me food when I recovered--little did I know he had just been released from the hospital after surgery and was
probably in considerable pain while he was taking care of me; in the Trust office, Adi K. suggested to me that I could cure my nearsightedness by immersing my head in a bucket of cold water and
looking from left to right repeatedly! I met Enid Corfe in Florida in the early seventies and she showed her copy of God Speaks which was autographed by Baba, who signed it a Merwan S. Irani.
