Meher Baba (1894–1969) was an Indian spiritual guru who accumulated a sizable following both in India and abroad during his time as a spiritual teacher. He maintained a vow of silence for the last forty-four years of his life, communicating mainly through an alphabet board or via a series of hand gestures. His teachings mainly focused on the nature of the soul and the universe, as well as advice on how to navigate life as part of a pursuit of conscious divinity.
After many years, The God-Man by C.B. Purdom is back in print! Written during Meher Baba's lifetime, it includes not only Purdom's personal recollections and messages he took down as they were being conveyed by Meher Baba, but also diaries and memories of other living witnesses.
One of the earliest American disciples of Meher Baba, Darwin Shaw presents here a phenomenal memoir of a man who has lived in the world but has spent most of his life following and personally serving the being he instantly recognized as the Christ.
