The first volume of a 20 volume detailed biography of Avatar Meher Baba. This double volume includes information about the lives of the five Perfect Masters: Hazrat Babajan, Upasni Maharaj, Tajudden Baba, Sai Baba, and Narayan Maharaj. Also describes Avatar Meher Baba's childhood and family, the formation of the first Mandali (disciples) and Manzil-e-Meem, and the founding of Meherabad. Of special interest is the account of July 10, 1925. On this day, Avatar Meher Baba began his long silence, which he kept for the rest of his life (next 44 years.)
Bhau Kalchuri's monolithic biography of Avatar Meher Baba's life is the most detailed, and will remain so for many years to come. Composed of almost daily accounts of the Avatar's life, it draws on diaries, journals and hundreds of personal interviews. Extravagantly illustrated with photographs, many of them previously unseen.
