I considered Eruch my teacher. I had a lot of personal contact with him off and on over a twenty year period. And many of these wonderful stories I heard him tell personally, and often he might tell these stories a little differently depending on who was near to him that day. That is, I found Eruch to be a unique, royal gentlemen around women and children, and with a wordly one like me, he could charm and enchant and surprize on all levels, as the perfect teacher should be able to do.
Eruch most help me deepen my faith in God to where I began to experience God was a absolute certainty. And to an -- at times as I was -- agnostic, this was a remarkably welcomed, magnificent process.
I was able to walk, often just he and I, literally hundreds of miles with Eruch in the early morning (over a period of 10 years), in the beautiful countryside of Western India, near Meherazad where he had lived with Meher Baba for most of his life. And he was a tremendous ingredient with my Hafiz work; I would say he was the impetus behind it and many poems he directly helped me with, even offering very specific word changes at times. And this man was the person who had the most physical contact with Meher Baba of anyone on earth; he most often spoke for Baba as Meher Baba had been silent the last 40 years of His life. And Baba very directly says of Himself: He is the Christ, the Buddha, the Prophet come again. What is one to do when faced with such an EXTRAORDINARY claim?
This book would help any, tremendously, in chipping away at such a claim, if they have an interest to do so. I have been exploring that "claim" myself, now, for over 30 years.

This is a cool book. It has a lot of stories about Meher Baba which can greatly inspire you. Eruch Jessawala is one of the best storytellers I've ever come across. Reading these stories is like sitting in Meherabad on a saturday morning. Spectacular.
Jai Baba!

Format: Paperback
I had been wondering on my journey for about 1 1/2 years and did not understand why certain things were happening to me. I knew there was a purpose but I did not know what it was. I had read Meher Baba's "Discourses" and it helped me but not enough. Then I read Eruch's book and I could relate to almost every story he told; it was almost like a veil of ignorance about these matters being lifted and gaining new insights into what had been dark areas before. Thanks, Eruch for writing this book. Another book which I read subsequently was Meher Baba's "God Speaks". This is a book difficult to read but perseverance pays off handsomely in the end. God Speaks was a milestone steeping stone for me in getting a glimpse of what the path to God Realization is about.

Eruch tells Baba stories in a way that makes you feel like you were there. Eruch talks about his personal experiences from living with Baba. If you love Baba stories this is the book. I have many Baba books but this is one of my favorites. I also recommend Ivy Duce book on How a Master works also has good Baba stories.
