Amiya Kumar Hazra (18 October 1931 – 24 March 2012), noted disciple of Meher Baba, was surely one of the heroes in Baba’s love. An English professor by profession, he published several Baba books in English: The Memoirs of a Zetetic, Of Men and Meher Baba, Seekers of Love and Life is a Jest.

Trust Meher.org  reported that Amiya Kumar Hazra passed away to join his Eternal Beloved on 24 March 2012 at approximately 11:00 a.m. at his hometown of Jabalpur after a short illness. His age was given as around 82 years, although his book The Memoirs of a Zetetic records his birth year as 1931.

Wise words on Surrender from Amiya

“When you are traveling with Baba through life’s journey, what does it matter what you do? Provided you offer it all to Baba. Baba said, ‘Every day when you go back to your bed to sleep, you say, “Baba, whatever I have done from the morning to this moment, I leave it to You. I give it up to You.” Then whatever you have done, you will be free from all bindings.’ But it has to be so sincere. Are we ready for that sort of surrender, giving up all that is good and not good to Baba?”

You Have to Become God
