I keep Meher Baba close to my spirit since I first heard about him and studied his writing about 20 years ago. I am not a religious person but am very much a spiritual being. Take a moment and learn about this extraordinary Avatar.
Meher Baba was an Indian spiritual master who claimed that he was an Avatar-God in human form. Born in 1894 in Poona, India to Irani Zoroastrian parents. His spiritual transformation began when he was 19 years old and lasted for seven years (Wikipedia).
He declared that he was the Avatar of the age. Although he maintained vocal silence for most of his life, his teachings spread worldwide, notably through his extensive travels and publications.
Meher Baba Quotes:

These brief quotes cannot show the depth and loveliness of this extraordinary man. They are meant to open a window and leave you wanting more. He is worth studying and getting to know better. Happy voyage.
