In Avataric periods, God mingles with each and everything that is in creation

It is very difficult to grasp the entire meaning of the word ‘Avatar.’ For mankind, it is easy and simple to declare that the Avatar is God, and that it means that God becomes man. But this is not all that the word ‘Avatar’ means or conveys.

It would be more appropriate to say […]

The Advent Of the Avatar

The Sadguru is Man-God (i.e., man becoming God) and had to pass through the process of evolution and involution, whereas the Avatar is God-Man; that is, God directly becomes man without passing through the process of evolution and involution.

“Remember this, I am not this body . . .”

During the night of January 30th, 1969, Meher Baba gestured to me on three separate occasions,

“Remember this, I am not this body . . . Remember, I am not this body . . . Remember, I am not this body.”

The Avatar in Reality is divine, and therefore when he manifests his divinity […]

Difference between Avatar and Perfect Masters roles

Baba gave the following explanation to the mandali about the difference between the Avatar and the Perfect Masters:

Past Avatars and marriage – Part 2 (Final)

At the time of Jesus, arrogance, imperiousness, pride and cruelty were the characteristics of people. Nevertheless, they possessed a conception of justice in regard to women and marriage; therefore, it was not necessary, as it was in Arabia, to make marriage an example.

The benefits one derives by meeting a Sadguru are numberless

After seeing the two other saints and bowing down to them, Baidul returned and informed Baba. Baba asked him, “What did Ishwar Singh say?”

“He asked me who Meher Baba was.”

“How did you answer?”
