Meher English School is one of the beneficiaries of my monthly contributions to the Trust, and what’s amazing to me about this shot is how Hawaiian it looks. Almost every face you see here could be Polynesian, and the scattered Caucasian features only make it look more local Hawaiian.
King David Kalakaua (1836 – 1891) said this of the Asian origins of his people in his epic work The Legends and Mythis of Hawaii (Mutual Publishing, Honolulu: 1990):
… we trace the strictly Polynesian tribes to an Aryan beginning, somewhere in Asia Minor or Arabia. There, in the remote past, it is assumed, they were brought in close contact with early Cushite and Chaldeo-Arabian civilizations. Subsequently drifting into India, they to some extent amalgamated with the Dravidian races, and, following the channels of the great Chaldean commerce of that period, at length found a home in the Asiatic archipelago from Sumatra to Luzon and Timor.
The exact time of their settlement on the large coast islands of southern Asia cannot be definitely determined, but their legends and geneologies give little room to doubt that it was contemporaneous with the Maylay and Hindoo invasions of Sumatra, Java, and other islands of the archipelago, during the first and second centuries of the Christian era, that the Polynesians were pushed out — not at once in a body, but by families and communities covering a period ov years — to the smaller and more remote islands of the Pacific.
When I travelled in Tamil Nadu when last in India, I noticed the similarities in song, dance, and the appearance of the people between Hawaiians and Dravidians, so I tend to agree with the King.
The ground energy of Hawaii is also sacred, and there is literally a traditional Shaivite Hindu Temple on the island of Kauai which has been accepted by its traditional South Indian Shaivite lineage as one of the lost temples of ancient India! Check it out at: Kauai’s Hindu Monastery.
Moving right along to other activities at Meherabad:
That is truly beautiful traditional Chinese calligraphy, and those two flying ladies in the graphic they’re holding are straight out of the cave temples in Chinese central Asia where I spent so much time during my many lives as a Chinese Buddhist monk. Frankly, for me, China is my past, not my future. My guidance has forbidden me to visit the Chinese mainland in this life, and I have no intention of ever returning there. Taiwan, from which I went to Meher Baba’s Last Darshan, is not a part of China. Look at the map, please; Taiwan is an island off the coast of China, like Japan, and literally has been a Japanese possession for half its known history. I would like to return to Taiwan again in this life.
The Chinese script of The Master’s Prayer which they’re holding exists online here: Avatar Meher Baba Chinese Website (100% Chinese language). That beautiful Chinese lady in this photo is the perpetrator of that web site.
