2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,900 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

    I’m happy with these stats, which basically show that this blog has a life of its own. I have posted little in the last year and have done absolutely nothing to generate traffic, but people still keep hitting the site.

    The prominence of Murshida Martin in this analysis shows that people are hitting this site for content. She is among the least known, and most significant, Sufi Murshids in the entire history of Sufism. She was the first Westerner who recieved Sufi lineage transmission.

    Like her predecessor Murshid Inayat Khan, her mureeds Murshid Samuel Lewis and Murshid Francis Brabazon, Rasool-Allah Meher Baba who, acting as a Chistia Qutub, took over the direction of her lineage from her successor Murshida Ivy Duce, his sister Manija S. Irani, who was Pir-o-Murshid or better in her own right, and yours truly, Murshida Rabia Martin was a Fakir – a dedicated Renunciate who attained without a family or a worldly career, and who accumulated no worldly wealth whatsoever. Rabia Martin’s life and legacy where 100% spiritual. This Path of Fakir-hood is the side of Sufism which has always yielded the Qutubs (Satgurus or Perfect Masters), and Faqir-hood has been rejected as a viable lifestyle by Murshida Rabia’s successors in Sufism Reoriented, together with their rejection of the majority of Meher Baba’s guidance to Ivy Duce in general.

    “I am the fortunate slave of the Master who has removed my Ignorance. Every word of my Master is of the greatest benefit to all who hear it.”

    — paraphrased – the author of this, which was part of Meher Baba’s last instruction to His Mandali and the world, was a Persian Sufi Fakir and Qutub named Hafiz Shirazi. Though not even Sufi, perhaps you have still already heard of Hafiz, who is universally acclaimed as the greatest poet in the Persian language who ever lived. Hafiz was also literally one of the classical Muslim Sufi Qutubs that Meher Baba ordered the members of Sufism Reoriented to read and live by, in the Sufi charter which he gave to Murshida Ivy Duce, but which was intended to pervade the entire Sufi world.

    Rasool-Allah Meher Baba ki Jai,
    Bhauji’s Vishveshwar
