The Silent Messenger charts the life of Meher Baba, the Indian spiritual Master who famously declared: “Don’t worry, be happy,” and “I have come not to teach, but to awaken." Meher Baba's life and teachings move through Vedantism, Sufism, Christianity and Buddhism. Uniquely, Baba gave all this to the world whilst remaining silent for 44 years. The Meher Baba Association presents the final book by Sir Tom and Lady Dorothy Hopkinson, which depicts the extraordinary facts of Meher Baba’s life and work, illustrated by judiciously chosen excerpts from his teachings and the insights of many of those who were closest to him.
A Note From the Publisher
The Silent Messenger is an important addition to the scholarly literature on world religions, as well as a book in high demand by a growing audience for readable works on Meher Baba. The Hopkinsons' previous book, Much Silence is regarded as the most accessible biography extant of Meher Baba's life. Tom Hopkinson was perhaps the best pure writer among the hundreds of authored books about Meher Baba, and this new text is guaranteed to be well received by a significant number of potential readers.
