Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"There can be no biography of him. Facts are few, stories many. He seems to have been known by different names in many parts of India, appearing and disappearing through the years. His western devotees of recent years knew him as 'Neem Karoli Baba,' but mostly as 'Maharajii'--a nickname so commonplace in India that one can often hear a tea vendor addressed thus. Just as he said, he was 'Nobody.'

He gave no discourses; the briefest, simplest stories were his teachings. Usually he sat or lay on a wooden bench wrapped in a plaid blanket while a few devotees sat around him. Visitors came and went; they were given food, a few words, a nod, a slap on the head or back, and they were sent away. There was gossip and laughter for he loved to joke. Orders for running the ashram were given, usually in a piercing yell across the compound. Sometimes he sat in silence, absorbed in another world to which we could not follow, but bliss and peace poured down on us. Who he was was no more than the experience of him, the nectar of his presence, the totality of his absence--enveloping us now like his plaid blanket. --Anjani

In 1967 I met Neem Karoli Baby, a meeting which changed the course of my life. In the depth of his compassion, wisdom, humor, power and love I found human possibility never before imagined...an extraordinary integration of spirit and form.

I was with him only briefly for he left his body in 1973, still he entered my heart as living truth, and his presence continues to enrich and guide my life. -- Ram Dass

Format: Paperback
This book is a marvelous collection of anecdotes and teaching stories from the devotees of Neem Karoli Baba, a true "Avadhoot" (one who has "shaken off" the world, to exist as a wandering vessel of God) of the Hindu tradition, but who transcended all traditional spiritual paths. He was impossible to classify or pin down. Maharaji, as he was lovingly called, would simply wander into a village and stay awhile, while people offered fruits and sat at his feet, then he would abruptly disappear into the jungle. He would laugh, scold, hug, talk briefly, or just sit. Miracles occurred often in his presence. Maharaji's only teachings seemed to be love, serve and see God in everything. No one could keep him in one place, not even police or jail cells. When the time came to leave a place, he just left. He was simply an old man in a plaid blanket, full of humor and love, who shone the Light of Eternal Consciousness.

What can I say, when you read the stories of Maharajji, it moves you on the deepest of levels. Grace and love are the messages of this great saint. I cried and and laughed, and am still laughing 7 years later. He is a wonderful teacher, and will play with you if you get to know him. Blessings.

I thought this book was really interesting. I didn't know a lot about Neem Karoli Baba before I read this - now I wish I was old enough to have traveled to India and met him myself. The book is broken up in individual stories so it's easy to read a little at a time ( a great boon to anyone who is busy!)

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Ram Giri on May 21, 2007
Format: Paperback
Of the greatest spiritual teachers in living memory, Neemkaroli Baba was the essential teacher of unconditional love. This love and the deep devotion it inspired shines through all the short stories of this book, all gems of simplicity, immense kindness and of an abolute mastery of life.

If you want to be inspired by this great soul and connect with your own purity of heart, then this book is for you. Today, as in the past, Maharaji touches many directly in profound and life-changing ways. This book has been a vehicle to allow many people to make this connection.

What life is like around a God-Realized Being: miraculous, transformative, sublime, awesome, humbling, not always understandable, and worth every minute of it...and then some.

This collection of anecdotes and remembrances by devotees captures and radiates the wisdom, love, and sublimely joyous blessings of a Saint.
Just open it where you will and darshan from this extraordinary being will shower your heart and mind. This is one of the great, great books in the spiritual literature.

Format: Paperback
"Miracle of Love" truly is a miraculous book. To read its pages is to experience the presence of Neem Karoli Baba.
My thanks to Baba for his blessings, and my personal thanks to Ram Dass for collecting, writing and editing this treasure. "Miracle of Love" served as an inspiration for writing "Divine Play, the Silent Teaching of Shivabalayogi", as well as "Swamiji's Treasure, the God Realization & Experiences of Shivabalayogi."
