In excerpting Meher Baba’s New Life Circulars, I have stripped out personal and anecdotal material by and about individuals, whom we after all do not know, and have selected for Meher Baba’s dharma in His New Life, that is the principles and rules that he enunciated and enforced. Do we know about and understand the three Plans, the two quite distinctive sets of Fixed Conditions, and the 20 conditions for begging, for example?
I fear that if we do not master this level of material, we may be misled by “Don’t Worry Be Happy” fanatics, who may exploit our ignorance to separate us from Meher Baba’s wish and will for us.

((Editing on 22 Feb 14 – post-Bhauji yours truly finds that he can no longer have such a cavalier attitude about the way the Master worked with people, and my recent excerpts reflect that. -vshr))
